    Timeline on 309/100 via applied for in London

    Hi All, We'll my time has finally come to say I've got the golden email and my visa 309 and 100 were granted this morning. I knew it wasn't going to be long as i'd been contacted by ACRO on Monday for permission to let them verify my police check with the Australian High Commission. Perfect timing as we've fly on the 15th October. Thanks for all the support and hold in there.... your visa is on its way despite the wait.

    Cheers @mppc I have since spoken to a lawyer and found out i'll need to travel on a visitor visa if the partner visa doesn't arrive in time (i.e by Mid October) Once granted I'd need to leave Aus (somewhere like NZ or Thailand) and re-enter on the 309 / 100 visa. Hope this helps anyone else thinking of the same.

    Timeline on 309/100 via applied for in London

    so we have bitten the bullet and booked our flights to Brisbane with a holiday stop over in Thailand. At this stage I don't have my visa confirmed but expecting that "golden email" any time now as I applied in November 2018. Should the visa not arrive before we leave mid October, I'll have to travel on a holiday Visa or Bridging Visa. has anyone got experience of this scenario? the main question are, 1 - would a Bridging Visa allow me to stay in Aus and transfer to the partner visa without leaving the country 2 - would i need to be back in the UK before traveling back to Aus on the partner visa (or would another country closer be OK) if anyone can recommend a solicitor / lawyer i can speak to that would be great. thanks.

    I'm with you on this. My application was submitted from London end of Nov 2018. I completed my medical and police check and then asked to submit RFI on the 6th June. At that point I was given 28 days to turn it around, but had it submitted with in 2 days. I can't believe its another 2 months further on and still no change to the "Further Assessment" status on my IMMI account. Util its granted I cant book flights or shipping, and have just sold my house with a completion day the end of Sept. very frustrating.

    update on my application., I've had a RFI to supply my police check. Coincidentally I made the ACRO application on the 2nd May in anticipation it would be requested soon. All being well that gets returned by the 16th May and uploaded to the IMMI account the same day. Does anybody happen to know the approximate turn around time between submitting the RFI, through to getting a visa being granted? recap of timeline Applied from London 27th Nov 2018 (front loaded minus Police check) Medical completed 3rd Jan 2019 RFI received on 9th may - UK Police check for myself (applicant)

    Just wondering if anybody who submitted in November has received a request for information or had their visa granted? I provided everything except the police checks on the 27th Nov, so eagerly awaiting to hear something soon.

    Just as a heads up @mppc "rooting" has a whole other meaning in Auz

    I've completed both the 80 and 1221 forms. Although they appear contain duplicated questions, there are are slight differences , which I've presumed is used to cross reference the accuracy of the information given. Having spent a lot of time gathering details and pulling together evidence, I decided not to leave anything to change and extending the approval process there are online tools which you can used to convert the 80 and 1221 into editable word docs. that should speed up filling it out too.

    Hi, I've just joined and hoping i might be able to get some advise around what notification others are getting following the the 309 visa application being submitted. to give an over view of my time line - 309 visa lodged on the 27th Nov 2018 All information front loaded Health examination 3rd January 2019 Now awaiting for someone to make contact..... How have others been contacted for RFI and Police checks, via email or through the IMMI portal in the application section? I just want to make sure i'm not missing anything and like others, I think i''m going mad from checking application everyday!
