I see, it shouldn't take too long for the AFP police check and medical I reckon. The only thing is in order to obtain my Hong Kong Police check I'll need a referral letter from immi which I'm assuming I'll receive once I have a CO? I'm so confused and really want to get everything sorted out

Hello everyone,

I am justing browsing the forum and have a couple of questions regarding the stat dec and Form 40SP.

1. Do we need to write several stat dec for different aspects of our relationship, like financial, household etc, or can we combine these in one stat dec?
2. There are some identical questions on Form 40SP and applicant's form. such as give*details*of*the*financial*aspects*of*the*relat ionship. Can we just copy and paste the answers or do we need write these answers individually?

I have been closing following this forum for pretty much 2 years now and it has provided a lot of useful help so thanks guys!

Yesterday I got my 820 grant email after waiting for 15 months and 6 days. I'm from the UK & lodged in Melbourne online with medical completed and police checks up front.

Received a generic your application has progressed in the queue email in July 2016. I uploaded the form 80 not too long after this and then a new police check in December 2016 as mine (the applicant) had now been older than 12 months.

No official contact from a case officer until their name appeared on the grant notice yesterday!

just a generic question to anyone that might be able to answer, i lodged my partner visa in oct 2016 with everything except the medical attached, within a couple of days of receiving the acknowledgement email i was contacted to go get a medical,does this mean i will receive my visa within 12 months of application or is it possible i will have to go get another medical if still waiting by oct 2017?
thanks

I completed my medical in October 2015 and my visa was granted in January 2017. I was not requested to do another medical even though I had waited 15 months, so medical. I think its down to the case officer.

I don't see any reason to get police/medical checks done BEFORE applying or during the first month. Most applications are taking the full 12 months to process, and I haven't seen any processed in less than 9 months lately. I'd say it's best to wait 4 months, lest your application takes 15 months to process as is being estimated.

As you will probably be updating evidence over the course of the 12 month processing period, the whole "its better to get it over and done with" argument is nullified IMO. Usually, you can only schedule a medical exam no more than one week before your appointment. So, it's not like you'll be waiting a long time. Foreign federal police checks take the longest to process.

I agree, only just organised my health and police check after 10 months since I lodged my application.
I haven't uploaded anything apart from the initial evidence I uploaded back in March though. What kind of ongoing evidence do you need ? like photos?
Thanks!

I can't really help there - if you can't get a check without a letter from Immi then I'd suggest you have to wait for the CO. I'd still probably be inclined to do the medical and federal check in the meantime. 2 less things to worry about further down the line!
