Hi all,

I have a very minor update. I decided to send an email and ask for an estimate when my application is likely to be processed, as I'm planning to go overseas in May. They responded within a couple of hours, informing me that "your application may be allocated to a case officer very soon for active assessment. Therefore, you are encouraged to upload the relevant documents to your file including completing health and character checks ( if not already done) in order to facilitate quick finalisation at the time of active assessment". So basically, it doesn't say very much .... "may" be allocated "very soon".. what does that mean?

Also I asked what happens if I get the visa while I'm overseas, and they responded with "You MUST be onshore ( in Australia) when your Partner application is finalised ( unless it is unfavourable and the requirements are NOT met)."

This is a bit confusing, because earlier they told me that if I were to be overseas when they want to finalise my visa, they would let me know and I would have some time to come back to Aus. Does anyone have experience with this? I AM going overseas.... can I let them know NOT to grant it in the period I'm away?

I think they allow you to come back onshore in order for it to be granted but sounds like you might get it granted before then!

I still haven't heard about mine and it'll be three weeks tomorrow that I submitted form 80. When do you think it's ok to email and ask about it?

What they mean is if they are going to reject your visa they will not ask you to come back just to reject it. If they will approve it they will ask you to come back onshore.

Arabella, I would just email and ask about it... I would be pretty impatient if I would be in your situation!

Thanks SharKs.

We only had to redo the Australian policy check. In hindsight, I wouldn't bother apply for any policy checks until waiting at least 6 months from when your application date.

No thankfully, we were not requested to redo the medical.

Thanks for your response . I already redid the Australian Police check last month, didn't bother doing my Dutch one again because I haven't lived there in the last 4.5 years, so I thought it shouldn't matter if it's expired now.... (dated Feb 2016). So hopefully they won't request any other information... fingers crossed!

Can someone tell me when you lodged your onshore application..why were you in aus? Work, holiday etc...im just trying to figure out if anyone has entered aus on a visior visa how long they decided to lodge their applications.

My husband and my kids are aus and we aRe making the move to aus in august. I have had my applkcation in works for awhile just different things have happened and money not being on our side so couldnt launch earlier. I was going to do it offshore but worried they may not let me enter on a visior visa plus i dong get work rigts so now considering to wait until we arrive to lodge it.so i would have to apply for a regular visitor visa correct?
