Best of luck to you.
It is great for you, Pandora!

I thought it was strange, too. But, my CO said that it was not provided in my application (and for good reason, too, I must say). Why in the world would I have a place to stay if I have no idea if and when my visa will be approved. I gave them an address of a friend, so the CO said that she will keep me posted of the progress.

It is not unusual that someone doing a family stream visa will have some idea of where they may reside, for instance where does your sponsor normally reside or has in the past and hence the reason the CO asked, nothing strange about that.

We both reside in Belgium, but he has distant relatives in Melbourne. Although, we have chosen Bribane, we do not have an accomodation there. Our plan is to get a furnished house once the visa is approved.

I was under the impression that EU Passport holders require an Evisitor visa (which is better than the ETA anyway, because it is free).

Yes, the eVisa is free and an EU passport holder applying online for an ETA will have it default to an eVisa.
The ETA is only $20 but they are different and an EU passport holder can still get one if they so desire.

Thanks Luckshan,

No, no more news. I'll update my timeline as soon as I have any news.

Good luck with your application, too.

so do you know what kind of checks they are doing during internal checks? is that about security checking and enquiring medical records from our countries?

Internal checks are those made by Immi officers and they can vary depending on the visa and whether it is lodged from within Australia or abroad, medical standards being addressed by approved medical officers who either approve or reject based on established criteria, there being a sticky thread about those.
Where applications require a Penal Clearance Certificate, the PCC or more commonly referred to as a Police Check, that is also an official document that Immi officers would normally accept.
Other checks that Immi officers may make could be re family situations via a home visit for family visas or an employer enquiry/visit re skilled visas.

There is then an external security check conducted by ASIO and that'll be dependent on country an applicant is from, be it considered a high risk or low risk country.
