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.

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!
Congratulations, carobear! Very happy for you. 6 months is amazing and right to the 100 is great! Who was your CO?

My application mirrors yours for the most part (got the same stock email 2 months later) except it was submitted April 21, 2014 and... still no word from a case officer yet. Going by your and emkas' timelines you both got C.O.s ~5 months after submitting, so I was hoping mine would be the same, but nada thus far. Maybe I'll get a surprise (with audible fanfare) grant in early November myself?

Congrats Carobear! I love hearing news of people getting their grants it renews my faith that the waiting really will end!
I haven't heard anything other than the immi acknowledgment letter, but am nearly at the 2 month mark so maybe something else soon :-)

Best of luck to you, Carobear!

Just an update: Today I received the generic checklist email that stated my file would be allocated for assessment soon. On Sept 19th I received a reply to an email I had sent stating a case officer was already assigned. Not sure which is right, but at least some movement.

Hope I was not forgotten or overlooked.. I sent in my app fully complete a month + before y'all... I got a generic checklist 3 weeks after I applied but nothing in months... I sent them a note about going out of the county next month (even though I was told I didn't have to do that) but used it as a reason to ask my questions... That was Monday afternoon so hope to hear something of substance soon... Will let y'all know...

I have a question regarding police checks. If the sponsor (citizen) has been out of Australia, living in USA for 15 years, would they be required to submit an AFP report? I remember reading somewhere that if you haven't been in Australia for 10 years you didn't need AFP check, only police checks from the country you are in. Then I read today if you lived in Australia over the age of 16 you need the AFP check. Can anyone clarify? This question only relates to sponsor, not the applicant. Thanks!

Sponsors only need police checks if a minor child is also included in the application.
