Applied for Offshore 309 Visa- 19th of July.

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Next time I will see my partner will be 11th of March.

Form 80 is part of the character evaluation they do for some applicants. It's massive (like listing all jobs held since birth - seriously). The North America service center told me not to do it unless they ask.

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.
Yeah, mine's complete. Still be nice to have word. At least it seems like they're moving on stuff for applicants in our month, anyway. Good luck on your end~

Question for you & everybody else - has anyone applying through DC been asked for Form 80?

Thanks!
Nope. Even in the request for more information checklist there was no mention of Form 80 for me. Hoping it stays that way.

Awesome news! Congrats, looks like you will be there by the end of the year and not have to worry about extra visas, one way tickets and short flights to NZ.

We've had some folks on the list forever who I don't *think* have ever come back and said if they were granted, and I suspect most of them have been, so I've contacted them all via private message to see if anyone would respond (and dplunkd has already - thanks! ) so I can get them off the waiting list.

I'm going to comb this thread and the other DC one and look for anyone else who might be waiting, but please comment here again if you'd like to be on the list (that way we'll make sure I get you on it!) and give the date you applied, which visa you applied for (309 or 300) and if you know who it is, your CO's initials. Also, please note if you applied via paper or online as well.

Thanks so much - hoping we can start getting a decent timeline going again so other DC folks will know what to expect!
Hello! We submitted our 309 offshore to DC on March 9, 2014 via online application. Got assigned a CO assigned on August 13 (ML). We only found out we got the CO because she was requesting more information. However, we haven't heard anything back from her even though we've reached out via email. My partner just went back to Australia last week and we're doing long distance until this visa is granted. Starting to go stir crazy considering I have a house, job, and man waiting for me across the ocean. Considering going over on an EMT early November if we don't hear anything by then.

How have you all been contacting the CO's? My CO directed me to contact her through a web submission page which seems ridiculous. I get a reply from a completely different person.

I found out about ours when she emailed me for more info. I replied and she contacted me a few days later. Now they are just waiting on us to get in what we need.

After finding out the wait times have increased to 12-15 months, we decided to email our CO to see if we could get a more realistic timeline for our specific application. I also provided a little bit of an update to our situation. She replied back within minutes and said we are on track for finalization by November 2014!!! Which would put our wait time at 9 months. She said "pending final assessment" so here's hoping we get approved! Fingers crossed!

The FBI website says this now;
On September 7, 2014, CJIS installed a new IT system. As a result of this installation, we are experiencing delays in processing. Please be assured that each issue is being identified and resolved as quickly as possible, but at this time anticipated processing time for an Identity History Summary is approximately 12 weeks. Allow additional time for mail delivery.
Though they processed our credit card today, so I doubt it's going to take that long.. or maybe I'm just hoping.

We only applied a month ago, and have only received 'acknowledgement of application'. This seems pretty normal, I shouldn't expect to hear anything else or be assigned a CO till roughly 3 months in?

Seeing as the wait times have been extended...would people recommend doing the medical and FBI clearance now or waiting till we hear from a CO?

And is it normal for the sponsors application to show as 'submitted' and the applicant's to show as 'in progress' online?... even though we submitted both..

Good luck to everyone! I'm one of, if not the most recent, to apply and I'm really looking forward to watching everyone be granted their happy news while we await ours!
