The reason of adding more docs is obviously as we have been asked for additional evidence. So we collected and collated a whole bunch of them, now ready to go.

When I went to my partner's ImmiAccount, under Attach Documents, there is absolutely nothing to click to add any more. Usually you have the square button on the very bottom to add documents, and it is gone. Nothing on the right hand side on the box either.

So currently I have all ready to go additional evidence in response to their request and unable to submit. It is in total so big in size, and they specifically told us not to send them by email as it causes a significant delay in processing.

Has anyone seen the same, what is the cause and what do I do? Please help!
I see you sponsor status is Approved. When did you apply for you visa?
Getting very impatient! 8 months for me now and not an update so far.
Not sure about this issue. Maybe best to send the CO an email informing your problem!
Good luck. Not long to go now!

8 months with absolutely no word or update on online is really long. I would definitely email the office, if not a CO. They have their generic email address right? I would put your TRF number and title on the email subject and ask them.

And we applied at the end of August.

Hello group, I am new to this forum. I am about half way through filling out the application for 309/100. What are the average waiting times looking like? I am applying from the US and my husband is Australian. We also have a child that is an Australian citizen. We are quite excited to get things going.

I can't tell you for sure because the grants are coming anywhere from 7 to 12 months. Iam still waiting 8 months and no updates at all.

I too ma going through the extra evidence requirement gethering period right now. What sort of extra evidece are you required and how much extra have you prepared?
I am guessing becuase the Police Clearace is a absolute nessasary piece of item to complete the asssment, hence the delay in response maybe?
I finally got my German police certificate and the receipt for the Canadian one. I can sleep better now ;-)

I provided more pictures for the last 2 months, invitations to events and get-togethers with friends (mostly Facebook invitations), joint bank statements (I marked our incomes and what we spend the money on for example his gym and my car insurance on the same credit card), joint tenant insurance, joint phone bills, mail to the same address, conversations between me and his mom (random screenshots), conversations between him and his mom/friends about us and the wedding (random screenshots), Facebook history, more proof for our planned wedding (venue booking, wedding invitations, guest list, pictures of my wedding dress etc), joint trips/plane tickets from the past 2 months and the future. I collected evidence every week in folders on my laptop and merged them together before sending them to my agent. Collecting it on a regular basis made it easier than all at once

I would roughly say 12 months. It could be longer but it could also be way faster. I think you're pretty safe with 12 months

Thanks guys it is good to hear some general wait time estimates, I know that there isn't a solid answer.

Is a medical necessary? On official information I just keep seeing to wait to book a medical until they tell you that you need one. But we all have to get one, don't we?

Yes, a medical is necessary. You can either do it in advance or wait until the embassy will request it because it's only valid for 12 months

Applied from USA

Hi, I am new to this forum and just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences as they have been very helpful to us. We have been married 10 plus years and have two children whom we also applied for Australian citizenship by descent for.
Application for 309/100 arrived in washington D.C. As of November 21 according to UPS. We applied with a paper application as our computer bit the dust and we did not want to invest in a new one since we are moving. Is it normal with paper applications for the embassy in America to take a while to charge your card? Our card has not been charged and we have not received any email from embassy that the application was received. Just wondering if I should call. Thank you

So I'm just looking over the first pages of the application again and it asks if I have a National Identity Card, then when you click the ? it just says something about how Chinese citizens MUST put theirs down. The US has various nationally identifying documents....do they want any and all (social security, birth cert) or just some official (Chinese?) one? On the next page there is a question that says do you have any other national identifying documents and then it wants social and stuff. So I guess these are separate items and that there isn't a singular national identity card of the USA so the first question I would just say no...
I guess I answered my own question.
This stuff can be pretty confusing =|
