Thanks!
We just put in further correspondence for the last year, photographs, a stat dec from each of us outlining the relationship again, another 888 from a friend, joint bank statement, proof of major purchases (sofa, washing machine, dryer, fridge) maybe overkill but it's what our agent requested of of the back of being asked to provide further evidence by Immi.

Hi Ginnylee,

It's not ESSENTIAL that you upload additional evidence, but I'd recommend it as a means to show that you and your partner are in a continued committed relationship. So photos from recent family events (ie Christmas parties), tickets from holidays or shows, receipts for new purchases (like Mania mentioned), or a new joint sports club membership etc. would be sufficient. Like I said, it's not essential...so I hope I didn't stress you out at all. You still have 2 months until you hit the 12th month mark, so if you have any evidence like the ones I mentioned above, maybe just start gather it or scan it into your computer so you have it just in case

Hi guys,

Long time lurker on this thread, I love reading the progress of everyone else's applications!

So I (an Irish citizen) applied for my Defacto Visa on 28/06/16 and have been waiting tentatively ever since for a response (albeit knowing I could be waiting over a year for this). Anyways, yesterday (18/01/17) I received an email from immigration requesting more information! All that has been requested is my medical examination, which from reading here, I knew to wait until I was asked to do it.

So my question is, is this a good sign? I honestly thought I would be waiting a whole lot longer than that for any activity to be made on my application. Since this is my first correspondence from Immigration since I applied, am I to assume that the person who signed off on the letter is my case officer? Her signature includes a "Position Number: XXXXXXX".

Any ideas?

I was part of a large group of people who received an automated letter which included the visa's checklist of required and recommended documents about 8 months after I applied. So, yes, I would say this is a good sign! It may not mean your application will be processed anytime soon, but it's an indication that immigration is being more proactive in contacting applicants personally for info. Medicals are simple enough. I had to call in for an appointment exactly one week from the day our local Bupa centre did the exams. I had to call at 8 in the morning, because the appointments filled up fast, and as I mentioned, the exam had to be scheduled for the following week. That was the only hard part.

Good luck!

Yes definitely a good sign that immigration is being more proactive!

And I just called Bupa there after trying to book an appointment online to no avail. She told me the same thing, to call/go online exactly a week before and make my booking! Who would have thought this would be the most stressful part?

My 820 was approved today

I applied on 14th February 2016. In December I was asked to supply form 80 and AFP check which I submitted first week of January.
I wasn't assigned a case officer and didn't receive any other communication.
