I applied in Sept 2015, Supplied overseas police check in January 2016....was requested for my Australian police check and medicals in July or August of 2016....submitted those then....now I am waiting over 15 months...and my overseas police check just went over the one year mark. I sure as heck hope I don't need to do it again...it was time consuming, expensive...AND I have not left Australia since I arrived...so it should be obvious I don't have a police record in Canada...fingers crossed I don't get asked for another one

Fingers crossed!

I think I'd be inclined to wait a month past the expiry date and if they still haven't made a decision apply for another, but for that point I'm in a position where I can't work due to being redundant on a 457 so anything that might slow my application is getting done ASAP lol!

Now I regret doing it so early. I am torn between ordering a new one (It cost a fair bit of $$, and it did take a fair amount of time too...and finances are tight at the moment), or waiting to see if they will just accept it as a few days past the one year (assuming they get to my app soon!!).

Those of you who have just been approved, did immigration contact your 888 witnesses? Nobody on our application has been contacted as of yet, so I am wondering if I still have a ways to go...or perhaps they don't always contact them?? With tomorrow being a holiday, I am not feeling very optimistic I will get my answer this week. Though it would be fabulous if I did
Hi LittleOne, just wondering--did the option to add additional evidence to your partner's sponsorship app JUST now become unavailable? Despite saying "approved", the ability to add to my partner's app stayed open for a while.I only noticed I couldn't add anymore the day before I got my grant letter. So perhaps you don't have to wait any longer? *fingers crossed*
I did notice there was another user on here, from Vietnam I think, who waited 17 months to get their grant letter...so at least you know you're not the only one who waited a long time! I waited 15 months and a week before getting mine, so you're in good company

Also, I haven't read about anyone's 888's being contacted at this stage recently, at least not anyone's who applied in the past year or so. I'd say you don't have to wait for anything in that department. Maybe email immigration, and let them know that your federal police check is expiring soon (if you haven't already?)

Good morning everyone!
I had a bit of a surprise this morning when I checked my emails- my 820 partner visa was approved!!! I wasn't expecting an answer for like 6 more months!

I applied mid March 2016, was asked in a generic email to supply my remaining medical/police check beginning of Jan 2017 and received my grant notification at 11:30pm on the 31st Jan. No case officer.

Congrats! It certainly seems like they're pushing the 2016 apps along quite quickly. Now you get to put your mind at ease for another year...don't forget to collect evidence for the 810 of course!

LittleOne, I feel for you! I applied from a low risk country in January 2016 (so still a few months after you) and I'm yet to hear anything from anyone which is totally stressing me out when I log on here and see approvals who applied waaaay after me. "Processed in order" my arse!

I did my Australian police check in May 2016, UK in about July 2016, Spanish in September 2016 and medical in September 2016 as well.

820 approved yesterday!

I applied in February 2016 onshore (QLD), online and from a low risk country. From the grant letter it looks like my application was processed in QLD. Didn't hear anything from immigration other than an e-mail in December asking me to complete medical and Australian police check, both of which I uploaded early/mid January.

Fingers crossed for those who are still waiting!

Edit: I've been checking immiaccount every day since i uploaded medical and AFP. My application changed from 'received' to 'finalised' yesterday, but my partner's application still hasnt changed from 'submitted'.

Congrats! I applied in Melbourne so maybe processing times are a bit longer here.

Thanks! I might be wrong, but from what I've read on this forum, it unfortunately does seem that some states takes longer to process than others... At least when you do get yours approved Arabella, you wont have to wait as long for 801
