Timeline on 309/100 via applied for in London

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,
I remember the RFI question wasn't too clear but we uploaded to the most obvious place on the immi account and named it "UPDATE_form124"
Hope that helps


309/100 Applied London 16th June 18. Medical and Police Checks 31st July 18. Further Information requested and submitted 30th Oct 18. 309 and 100 Granted 16th Jan 2019. Planning to move July 2019.

I also received my RFI today. Submitted 8th October 18 so very similar time frame to you mia.oh.my. 
They've requested my medical and also proof of UK immigration status for my sponsor, which I wasn't expecting but of course is no problem. 


This is good news! Hopefully things are picking up again 🤞🏼

It’s really promising to hear that those of you who submitted at the beginning of October are being asked for further info 🙂  My lodgement date is October 28th so I’m starting to feel hopeful 🤞 I’ve done my police check and medical, and my husband (sponsor) has done his Aussie and U.K. police checks and uploaded his proof of U.K. Indefinite Leave to Remain, so hopefully we’re good on that front. The only thing I’m wondering whether they’ll want from me is the Form 80, which I haven’t completed. Did everyone else upload this form?

Hi W20

What prompted you to upload proof of your sponsor's UK Indefinite Leave to Remain? I don't recall seeing this requested and have just been asked for it as part of the RFI. Not a problem but just curious if I missed it somehow! Thanks.

Hi @simonp85 I think maybe I’d seen a previous post on a forum about uploading it, or maybe we just uploaded it as another proof of identity...I can’t remember now, sorry. So can I ask if you uploaded a form 80?

Ah cool ok. I didn't spot that during a lot of research but no trouble to upload now thankfully. 

Yes I completed a Form 80, I couldn't tell if it was strictly needed or not but thought no harm to do it.

@simonp85 Ah, ok, thanks. I’ve been putting off doing that form because of having to remember dates of things...my memory is atrocious! I was hoping it wouldn’t be necessary, which is why I was enquiring.

Great news RFIs are coming through @simonp85 and @mia.oh.my

We submitted on 4th October so fingers crossed someone will email us soon too! 

We also completed a Form 80. 

When I log in and look at my sponsorship application - I noticed that It says Applicant - my name, DOB and now it’s also saying next to it ‘approved’ even though the status is still submitted? Does anyone else’s say this?

Just logged in and checked, but mine sponsorship application does not say 'approved' next to my name/DOB. 😞

@LouFerg I think you're looking on the "View Details" page for the sponsor's application? 

If so my sponsor still says "Submitted" but this doesn't surprise me given the RFI request.

Yes that’s the one. But has me very puzzled why it’s saying approved there now, even though status is still submitted and we have received no notifications of any sort. The mystery continues!

I had the same thought when lodging so I rang the Global service centre and They told me the following;

The AFP Cert is required for the sponsor to prove they have not been in trouble with the law since birth, so if there are any juvenile "issues" then Immi can see it and make their judgment. As it is they can only see your adult file but the AFP check tells your story from birth. 

I left Australia at 10 years old and when I applied for AFP Cert I gave them 10 years of UK addresses and all was fine. Took 6 weeks but that was over Christmas, cost about £25. 

Thanks for this @Waitingaround I have just completed my AFP and it's as straightforward as the UK one... I just hope it comes through within the 28 days. I'm presuming it gets posted?

Hi @LouFerg

just checked on the sponsor application and it’s the same for me. The status is “submitted” but when you view details, next to my partners name it says “approved”.

this is good news as my RFIs were for the sponsors birth cert and uk police check.

I’m filled with new hope 😊

Yep, hard copy through your door. You get a confirmation email letting you know that they have put it in the post and it gives you a rough time line. Mine said 20 days but that was over Christmas which I'm hoping is the reason it took 6 weeks😂 could have been the fact I only lived there as a minor. 

Fingers crossed yours doesn't take as long, I don't see why it would. Good luck.

Hi guys,

Quick question with regards to AFP checks. I am the applicant and I lived in Australia on a 417 WHV for around 10 months in 2017. I was wondering if any knows if they will ask me to complete an Australian police check. I know I haven't lived there for over 12 months, but I have been back to Visit a few times on tourist Visa so my total time in Australia will have exceeded 12 months by now.

Not sure if it's worth getting an AFP check done now in preparation for them to ask me for it in an RFI. That way ill have it ready.

Thanks

 


15/11/18 - 309/100 application submitted frontloaded with police checks for applicant and sponsor. 

19/11/18 - Medical completed in Knightsbridge.

26/11/18 - Medical uploaded to Immi, no further action required.

I uploaded my wife's proof of ILR, as it is part of our history and was on the basis of her being my wife.

Since submitting my application in October, we have fallen pregnant and are due in July. 🙂  However I have been asked to arrange my medical which I can’t have until after bubs has arrived with the chest x-ray. I haven’t had any direct contact from a CO via email etc but have updated my details on Immi to reflect this information and ask about not having the chest exam or postponing it and heard nothing since. Does the CO email you directly once things like medical are uploaded? Everything else was front loaded so I haven’t had other RFIs. Feel like we might end up in a huge rush to get over there as soon as the little one arrives and I have my medical since my polic check will be 12 months old in September. Any thoughts/advice?
