  1. OK, I can't find any noticeable change. The data is restored back to April 12 version. If you added anything after that date, please verify.
  2. Thanks @LindaH27 and @Marilyn. The data has been restored to previous state. I'll try my best to restore the data that has been added after this version. Part of the reason that I leave this publicly editable because I would prefer to have everyone contribute and I may not have time to monitor all the discussion to gather data. I'm not sure if there is any other better option, but Google sheet can restore data to previous date if anything like this happen again. If anyone don't want their name included, please feel free to remove it or let me know. I'll respect your privacy.
  3. Your name has been added. Please feel free to make any change when you get an update so that it could help others also.
  4. Have you called their complaint and feedback line?
  5. Is there any reason why you didn't email them the documents? In the request for document letter, they mention that email is preferred and faster. We didn't receive any acknowledgement receipt, and we had to follow up every month to know that our emails were lost and we had to resend them all documents. However, I saw some people here did get acknowledgement receipt saying that all documents have been received, so it depends on each case. Based on the tracking sheet, it could be between 1 to 3 months before the 2nd VAC is requested: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qdUJtvi43-4Ma76iDQWtT3Dv2KK4HxA1lvQzeAB2MOE
  6. If you have time, I think it's better to go to a branch.
  7. I've found this calculator, but I haven't tried this myself: https://www.centrelink.gov.au/custsite_aoscalc/aoscalc/financialCalPage.jsf?prg_id=0a22b56c839d45ff88336c2727da64b8&wec-appid=aoscalc&page=1C0EADC1A5804952B374580CFFB9BDFD&wec-locale=en_US#stay
  8. Hi @Alan Collett, can you confirm if the client's file number prefix is BCC? According to the letter I received: I think the tax invoice has more payment options.
  9. We also had to submit some documents a few times. They claimed they didn't receive our previous emails.
  10. This link has some examples: https://www.australiavisa.com/immigration-news/condition-8558-visitor-visas/ Looks like it's based on calendar month.
  11. Honestly it's really hard to tell how long between 2nd vac and visa being granted. Based on the visa tracker sheet, it could be between 3 days to nearly a month. Anyway, I believe that all applicants have to be out of AU before this visa can be granted because they have to go through custom (or whatever) to activate their visas. Please don't quote me on this, but apparently the main visa applicant has to activate their visa first. I can't remember where I learned about this though.
  12. Hi all, we are very happy that we just got the visas granted yesterday evening. Thank you all very much for your help, especially @Alan Collett and @Catlady2014!!! They have extended the entry date till Feb 2019. Thanks!!!
