  1. Our only RFI was for proof of how I (the sponsor) had obtained British citizenship - I’m a dual citizen, who originally arrived in the UK on an ancestry visa and then got ILR and citizenship. Didn’t even consider the CO may want this, as had already provided my British passport, but was easy enough to upload citizenship certificate. Worth doing the same if your wife has obtained dual citizenship.
  2. Brilliant news, congrats!!
  3. Congratulations! [emoji3] I wonder how many login notification emails Immi send out every day... I had to turn the notification off as there were so many [emoji23] Fingers crossed CEP and others waiting a long time are up next.
  4. The 100 grant for us arrived a couple of minutes after the 309.
  5. Application status remained submitted but approved written next to full sponsor name and birthdate once you click through.
  6. Congratulations @LottyC and @LouFerg. Busy day at Australia House!
  7. Just to follow up on this for anyone in similar circumstances with a family member critically ill. I followed @Jon the Hat's advice and called the global helpline. They told me to upload the evidence (letters from doctors, proof of urgent same day travel from UK to Australia when family member became ill etc) but couldn't guarantee anything. A couple of weeks ago we had confirmation they planned to expedite our application and my wife was granted the 100 visa last week from London. Really hoping there'll be some more grants this week for those of you that have been waiting for so long. All the best.
  8. Hi Jon. Thanks, I will try that - and yep, tourist visa is plan B. Hi Nemesis. I understand there's no official priority processing so it's a long shot - but have heard of cases (including older threads on this forum) where they have expedited due to compelling family medical circumstances if evidence can be provided.
  9. Hi all, New member here but have been reading this thread for a while with interest. Best of luck to all of you waiting and congratulations to those who have received visas recently. I am an Australian citizen, my wife is British and recently we lodged a 309 application from here in the UK. We'd always planned on heading back to Australia but we are doing so sooner than planned as my mother is currently critically ill in Australia. I was wondering if anyone has a contact email address for the team dealing with partner visa applications in the London office, as I would like to request priority processing on compassionate grounds (I have supporting medical documentation to submit as evidence of this). Any information you can provide would be much appreciated. Neeskens
