we had medicals, forms, police checks, etc. all submitted within 2 months of submitting the application. Received an email in February (thought they had approved), nope wanted 2 copies of 888. Had those to them within 2 days. Over 3 months now. This all began in April last year. I'm so over it! Thanks, I may call them.

The medicals are simply part of the process. Do you have your Bridging Visa? As for your Temporary, could be 6 months - could be more than a year. People are having different experiences. I've been waiting 13 months now, had my physical about a month after applying.

I had to do a medical for my student visa a few years ago and I remember my visa was approved a few days later. Hoping for a similar situation this time!

Thanks in advance!
Awesome news! BUPA will send the medical results to DIBP within 3-5 working days. Usually, it happens pretty fast right after that. You'll be fine getting the medicals next week. You have 28 days to supply the info requested.

Best of luck!! Looks like you'll have your grant soon!

Just applied

I have just applied for the partner Visa on Sunday and have been adding all our documents ever since the money went through via BPay monday afternoon. I feel such a relief now that I have done it. It's been such a tough and draining couple of months trying to get everything together and all the research that goes into it and my partner works full time so it's been mainly me working on it trying to get it all together.
I was wondering how everyones experience was with the online application? I was so angry when looking at the place where attach all documents.It's very clear that any information given to you online or via immigration is mainly based on paper applications - it was so different! I had everything perfectly organised according to how the checklist worked and it was just completely different online. So little information online about what exactly you have to do with the online application. It's been so frustrating. For example, regardless of intensive research, I only just recently noticed that with online applications it is not required to certify copies and that a colour scan is enough. If I had known that earlier I would have had less stress. So confusing. What a bad process.

It could be very confusing, although the website has made a number of minimal improvements recently, so in addition to uploading documents, it helps (I guess) to read the Documents Checklist under the Related Links Menu of the Online Lodgement page.

I never had to certify documents before uploading, EXCEPT for things like Statutory Declarations and Form 888s, though the whole process is no less stressful and confusing. Not to mention the long wait without hearing anything from Immi

I think the worst part is hearing nothing and waiting.........and waiting.........and.....! You send them all the information they want and then you get nothing in return. I've never heard from them except for the request for my medical a few weeks after I submitted my application almost a year ago.

It varies, but if you front loaded your app and the only thing you need is the medical, the grant may come within a few days. But of course some wait longer.

They are slowly making updates to the DIBP website and specifying differences for online applications.

I read it a few days ago and the scanning thing is on there (original scanned color copies do not need to be certified).

Everyone gets this automatically just for applying, no one has to look at the app to approve a bridging visa. Seeing that they applied in October, it's safe to assume they have one.
