Yeah I'm the same, allegedly it takes seven weeks! But I think Christmas might effect this for a couple of weeks also! So hopefully around the first week in February should hear back!

Hi!

I'm joining the Dec'13 gang. I lodged my application at the end of December.:cool:

 

Have you done your medicals yet or do you plan to wait for CO's instructions?

There should be a emedical form that should be there in the immi ac. You don't need to wait for a CO to do your medicals.

Hi LadyB! We spoke to our lawyer today regarding this, it isn't recommended as your visa basically begins when you complete your medical so your advised to do this last. However, if you consider your particular visa to be simple enough to have a positive outcome and time isn't a problem then it should be fine!

Hi, Gary! Yes, I think our visa is quite simple, but will probably wait for CO.

 

Anyway, status of my submitted documents has changed on 6/1 from "required" to "received" except for IELTS results. I have no clue why that exemption.

 

Yesterday I submitted more proof of de facto (in case children's birth certificates with my and my partner's names on them are not enough) and form 1221 for my partner. The form was only "recommended" but we sent it anyway. I believe it cannot hurt.

We didn't have anything like a child's birth certificate, so had to go down the route of picture together and joint insurance documents, was a bit of a nightmare! Can't really comment on the status updates as we have a lawyer who does all that for us and basically tells us what to do and when to do it!?!?

Joining the gang as well, submitted on 6th of December, status of the documents from required to received on 6th of January... Waiting is killing me... Meds done on 17th of December, though they were not send electronically, but on paper (separate application). As much as I read, on 190 visa you may be forced to activate your visa from the date that you got the sponsorship. Correct me if I'm wrong, please. Just police checks left, arranging for next week to be done.

Hi all,

 

We also applied for 190 visa with SA sponsorship on the 4th of December. We have submitted all docs including medicals and 1221. We have filled in the form 80 but not yet uploaded. Thinking we should wait to see if CO requests it. Anyone gotten a CO yet?.

We are waiting anxiously :rolleyes:

Ok, so we got our medicals booked and do them on Wednesday! We got our British police checks sent and they be received so they not gonna take long! we sent our Aussie police checks away also!

 

Our lawyer also been contacted by our case officer so that's great news!

 

Unfortunately we been told we have a deadline that is on the 15th of February?!?!? Don't reckon we have enough time to have received our Aussie police checks back by then!

 

Anyone know what this means?....

Hi GarySawyers, I think it's fine to ask for extension from the CO, just tell him your predicament. Where is your SS from??

Hi Jellybean, we already been granted our state sponsorship with WA, so this just the final stumbling block, so to speak!

 

Made another thread and by the sounds of things if you prove you have applied for a police check you will be granted an extension and once you receive your results you just forward the to the CO.

 

should hopefully be fairly plain sailing now!!!
