  1. Oh i agree that because it is a regulation it is very unlikely to be waived, but there is no harm in trying. I am grateful he is here with me and our baby, but it's so frustrating knowing that we might be waiting months (years???) longer.
  2. Yep we've basically been told they won't process ours until he is offshore. i've written to my Federal MP asking if they can look at waiving the requirement for applicants to be offshore at time of grant, given then extenuating circumstances we are in.
  3. I am so beyond frustrated with this whole process. Because my husband is in Australia (on a bridging visa) our application has been put on hold (seemingly indefinitely) because they can't grant his 309/100 until he is offshore - and with the travel restrictions in place who knows when borders will reopen. We lodged our application nearly 17 months ago now and still waiting. It's all messed up thanks to Covid
  4. I did get an email this morning saying "your application is progressing". I'm guessing that there are some delays going on, so it was good to get something, especially given it is now a year since we lodged At least we are luckier than some, my hubby is here in Australia with me.
  5. Finally received an RFI - we need to submit a stat dec re a police clearance from a country we used to live in but can't get a clearance from online (and can't go in person!) so need a waiver. What a relief that there is movement! We lodged in March and I was worried our other police clearances would expire soon (we had about 4 each, since we've lived all over the place). We had submitted a stat dec previously but it wasn't on Immi's official stat dec form I guess.
  6. the BV came into effect the next time he was due to leave Aus, and it was given with full working rights.
  7. We had the same - hubby came to Aus on a 651 visitor visa and were granted a bridging visa while here. This is now in effect so it makes the wait a lot more bearable for hubby!
  8. Nothing, zip, nada I'm hoping this week is our week, especially since so many lodged after ours have been approved, so we can't be far behind.
  9. Beginning to feel like they have forgotten our application, after seeing all these grants. We applied March 4 and still waiting
  10. They also seem to have skipped a lot of March applicants
  11. Wow, a 3 month grant, that is incredibly frustrating! No golden email yet, no matter how many times i check my email it's not there
  12. I called the immigration department and spoke to them directly about the conditions and they told me it was all good.
  13. Good luck on the bridging visa! I was shocked when they granted my husband's. His becomes active on the 13th January, and he's been offered a job already to start on the 13th! It's a massive relief, and a bright spot while waiting for the 309/100
  14. Congratulations!!! You lodged the day before I did so this gives me so much hope!!! I'd love that golden email, it is our daughter's first birthday today so that would just make my day!
  15. Buena suerte para ti también!
