No they don't put anything in you passport anymore, the visa is linked to your passport number.
Most people print out their grant email and carry it with them but it is not really needed.

Thanks aussiesteve. I'm glad that the process is going to be more simple to get to Australia.

Today RM was assigned as our case officer. If only the FBI check was back already, we could get this show on the road.

Mellie, did you get an email about your CO assignment? Also can you remind me when you applied? I haven't heard anything other than the receipt of application email, though I only applied a month ago (for PMV).
Thanks!

We applied for the 309 on April 25 online. We got the email asking for us to upload a couple more things (like my current status in the USA since I got a visa extension).

We are hoping for my visa to get approved before the end of the year. Nonetheless we are planning on going to Australia for a wedding in December on a tourist visa. Would it b a problem if I only bought a ticket in one direction. Anyone have any experience with this? Would that b an issue? If visa is ready to be granted I could just head over to NZ.

So, the email asking you to upload more stuff had the CO name, or you later got a separate email with the CO name?

Bit depressed either way since I applied for my 309 April 22 online, but haven't received a CO yet. I did get the more info request email back in June, but no name.

Hoping maybe they're just still going through our month...

We were missing some things from our application, so if you've got yours complete they might not contact you until you're approved. The email we got was from our CO telling us that they need everything but the FBI check within 28 days (since you can't rush an FBI check).

They also asked for personal statements from us again, which I'm glad of, since I've thought of more stuff and we've discussed more things (like buying a house) since I innitially wrote mine.

Just to let you know of our progress.
Applied 11th April 2014
In August my partner received correspondence to do his medical and police checks.
Medical check and police checks done 23rd September, just waiting on the FBI one to come back. They also want him to provide a copy of his will and more on the financial.
I received an email on the 23rd September for more information. I emailed back stating that I will provide them with my will and we are currently registering our relationship with BDM but that it takes 28 before they grant you a certificate. They also wanted a letter from my bank stating why my partner can't be a joint member but how we've overcome this.
Today I received an email stating once we supplied them with these details this will be enough proof for a defacto relationship. Our case officer believed our relationship to be true and genuine already but for legislation purposes needs these docs.
I am hoping now that in a months time when we email these docs to her our visa will be granted and he can be here by Christmas. Will keep you posted.
