If you are offshore when applying, they usually ask you to do medicals when the have established a genuine relationship. This is also when police checks may be requested to. The last step is asking for an AoS if needed.

This is what the order seems to be, so don't take it as an iron-clad order of events.

Hi Aussiegirl, My fiance and i applied for her visa in august, we recieved a letter from our appointed CO asking for medicals and stating that no interview was required at this time.... i know every caseis a case by case basis and there is no set order, but would it be safe assuming we have passed the initial stages and are now waiting on the mediclas and finace parts of the application, or is there still other stages that come after this?

thanks for your help

Hi Mark,

From my experience of the whole thing, they assess the relationship first and if there are any doubts about this they ask for more proof, like bills and the like. So, it would seem they have ruled that you are in a genuine relationship.

Now, once the medicals are done, they'll be assessed by HOC in Australia. This could take anywhere up to 6 weeks or so. My husband's medicals were assessed back in August, but the CO still says grant may not come until the end of the year.

I assume the last thing they are doing is the financial assessment. I'm not sure where character comes, but if you supplied police checks upfront and they haven't asked for a form 80 yet, you're probably over that hurdle too.

Let me know if you hear anything more from your CO. I'm going insane from all the waiting but my husband is staying super calm and thinks we'll get it before Christmas. We were given a 9 month waiting time, so who knows!

Character assesment is your police clearance certificates and perhaps form 80... basically making sure that the person is a safe addition to australian society.... I wouldnt worry unless your partner has a criminal records, it can take a bit of time especially if you are froma high risk country and they need to do furhter checking, however unless he.she has done something wrong in the past there shouldnt be an issue

From what I've been told, if you have anything on your criminal record (I, myself, have 3 counts of writing bad checks) then it's a good idea to fill out a Form 80. I say it's better to have given them too much than not enough.
