So happy for you! Every time I see someone's application is approved, I feel more hopeful. Haha
Good luck on your 801!

I honestly could not be happier and I want to thank everyone on this forum for their wonderful and supportive advice and insight, you have all made this process a lot easier for me.

Here is my timeline:

Applied: 28th June 2016 (Online - Sydney)
Request for Medicals: 18th Jan 2017
Medicals Submitted: 30th Jan 2017
Approval: 2nd February 2017


Partner and I are suitably excited and will be having more than a few drinks tonight to celebrate!

It really seems to be a game of chance with these processing times....or maybe it's the luck of the Irish?! Haha

Hopefully you're not waiting much longer, you're nearing the end of the 15 months so maybe you'll get some good news in time for Valentines day?! (Just saw its 16 months you're waiting.....it better be soon then!)

I applied from Sydney - which is unusual because I've heard Sydney applications are taking the longest. It's funny though because both the letter with the request for my medicals and the grant letter are signed off from the "Australian High Commission, London
OFFICE:Australia House Strand London WC2B 4LA" which I thought was unusual

Wow congratulations!!

We applied exactly the same day as you, but from a high risk country so I imagine we will still be waiting a while. Haven't heard a word from immi yet.

Thanks HRose !! I tried not to get my hopes up too much that I'd hear back anytime soon, so it really surprised me seeing that this morning!

Now to wait for the 801....

Hi everyone, hope you all are doing well.
Please help me.
So I applied for 820 visa online on 22 July 2016 and got granted a bridging visa A( been waiting 7 months )
I'm wondering if I should apply for police clearance and medical check or should I wait till requested by case officer?
Thanks so much.

I personally would do medical and police clearance now.

They are valid for 12 months, it's likely that you will have an answer by 19 months, in the event that you don't have an answer by then you would need to do the medical and police checks again.

It depends on your circumstances, by applying now you potentially speed up the visa grant by a short amount of time, you gamble the cost of having to do the medical and police clearances again if the visas not granted within 12 months.

So happy for you! And in 7 months!! Loving all these grants! If it's the luck of the Irish, then count me in (my grandparents came from Ireland)! Hopefully it rubs off on the rest of us. Awesome news! Congrats!

Thank you.
I'm also not sure about applying for AFP with finger prints or just normal one?
