We submitted my PMV application through DC March 7th 2014 via paper.
I "think" our case worker may be RM.

Thanks,

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!
I would wait for a while before getting medical and FBI simply because they do expire and it would be frustrating to have to get them done again.
Maybe keep your eye on this tread and when people closer to your application date get assigned their CO do your checks then?

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.

Hi,

I am fairly new to this forum so please let me know if I need to post this somewhere else. I still don't understand how the visa process works.

My situation: I am French, married for almost 5 years with my Australian husband. We have 2 kids and we live in the US.

We are planning on moving next year to Australia. So, I applied on October 2 for a partner visa (309) online.
I submitted first my application, I paid (ouch, so much money!) then my husband submitted his. We uploaded all the requested documentation (or so we hope) except for the health check and police check. His application has the status "submitted" whereas mine has the status "in progress". Is this normal?
I immediately got an automated email "IMMI Acknowledgement of Application Received".
What is now the next step? From what I read, someone will contact us in about 3 months, is that correct?

Thanks for helping me figuring out how the visa process work! I hope we did everything right, I am so worried we didn't do it the right way!

Thanks for your help

Cecile

It's normal for the immi website to say "submitted" for your partner/sponsor but have the recipient of the visa have "in progress".
We got an email a couple of weeks after applying, but it's just a standard email that they send to everyone, basically letting you know that if you have further questions you can email them directly.
My husband didn't get his personalised email until about 5 months after application. That email asked for the things that we didn't have uploaded yet, such as police checks. The timeline for this is constantly changing though, unfortunately it seems to be taking longer.
I hope this helps

Great Wendy. I just submitted and paid for mine too. I already uploaded all my documents. Just be aware that there is a limitation on the number of files you can upload. I didn't know and wanted to upload a couple of more things but couldn't. I had known, I would just have combined some of them (like put all the utility bills in one pdf for example, instead I uploaded them one by one). I don't know what the limit is but I had uploaded a bit over 60 documents when I got the error message.
Good luck!

Thanks cec! Yup, I've been lurking and reading and researching for months now. I'm going to try and combine files as much as possible so that they are just under the 5mb limit. Someone else also had a fantastic idea to put together a document that is a master to all the singular documents. I'm going to do this too. Anything to make it easier for the CO's. After all we are dependent upon them to be able to get thru our applications and the easier we make it for them the better it is for us!
Good luck to you too!

Hello everyone,

My partner visa was granted! I received the permanent (100) visa right away as my partner and I have been together for more than 3 years. We are going out to celebrate tonight with a nice bottle of Australian red we've been saving for the occasion

Here is how it all went down..

March 25th, 2014- Submitted Application Online
2 months later- Received the stock standard email checklist requesting medicals, police checks which I then submitted one week later
5 months later- Received an email from my case officer saying a decision would likely be made sometime in Oct/ Nov
Visa 100 Granted 6 months after applying

My case officer was very helpful and professional which I am so grateful for. Thanks so much to everyone on this forum for all of your help and support. I definitely could not have done it without you!
