Wow you guys deserve medals waiting that long! I'm coming up to 5 months and I wouldn't want another 7 months of this. Well done for hanging in there

Thanks CollegeGirl!

Best wishes to you too adm6 - it is great to have this waiting room where we have people in the same situation.

Hi kizzy_1 - it has been OK as life just goes on like normal, but now that we are at the one year stage we really would like to hear something soon.

I'm starting to get excited now knowing it shouldn't be too much longer we'll have to wait. Kizzy_1, bluesky is right, for the first couple of months after we applied it was constantly on my mind but after that and up til now I kinda forgot about it and the months went by - there's no point worrying about it, it's gonna be a long wait. Now that we're getting close though it's hard not to think about it!

VEVO password
Hi BlueSea - It's just the same VEVO that everyone uses. No access to online processing of applications. The advantages are that a password is faster to use AND it shows you immediately if you have been granted a visa without having to wait for the Visa Grant Letter or Email. Hope this helps... :)

I am nearly the same as you, paper application in Sydney end of September last year so we're only a few weeks off the 12 month mark too and haven't heard anything from DIBP - hopefully we will both be receiving some good news in the coming months!

Dinkum - is that a login in/passwords to access any updates on our visas online like those who applied online? Different to VEVO? I didn't know paper applicants could access the online stuff.

DIBP follow-up
Hi BlueSea - We haven't asked DIBP for any updates at all. We just updated our police clearances by registered mail. No plans to contact them until after 15 months has passed. :)

Sorry Dinkum, I also meant to ask - have you asked DIBP for an update on your application now you are over the 13 month mark?

We just got our grant for the 820!! We are over the only took 2 weeks and 2 days.

I'm still here waiting.

Not so concerned anymore as hubby got a permanent full time job in his field of studies whilst on the BVA. So we're happy.
It'll be 9 months in a few of days.

Wow congratulations! What visa were you coming from?

Dinkum 09-05-2014 07:29 AM

Congratulations! Thanks for sharing your wonderful news. :)

Marjan 09-05-2014 07:56 AM

Thank you :)

Coming from a PMV why i think it's faster then usual? Altho i didnt expect it within 3 weeks thought it would be a few months.
