    Recommended Posts

    hi has anyone out there gone over on a spouse visa we thought it would be quicker but surprise surprise we seem to be doing the long wait like everyone else and the wait is so frustrating. we have sold the house so we are very lucky but don't want to loose the buyer by making them wait ages.

    we are also shipping our stuff over but hubby want to put loads of beer in as he likes crown lager over in aus and it's not cheap.

    I know lots of people are waiting an waiting and waiting

    catch you all again soon dina:arghh:

    Hello Dina,

    I have just joined the site as I have also applied for a spouse visa. My final piece of correspondence should be with them tomorrow (son's birth cert) and I am then hoping that it will all be processed very quickly as my husband (an Aussie) needs to be back in Adelaide for work in September. How long have you waited? Any quidance or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Cazzie:)

    hi our forms were recieved in london on 16 april my hubby had meds done on 14 april but had to do a follow thing cause blood pressure was high but follow up doc said he was fine no worries.

    london recieved meds and police check on 15 may but then they sent meds off to oz for approval this is normal aparently they said it should take 4 weeks got to 12 june 4 weeks later nothin from london.

    waitin was killin me so rang on the 18 june she said meds are back but haven't made thier way back to her desk yet!

    so we wait again hopin to have a decision soon as we wanted to go in august have sold the house (even though they say not to but we thought it would take ages to sell)

    we were told about 12 weeks so we still have a few weeks left to go.

    it's just so frustrating not knowing what is happening

    good luck with the process

    I got my Spouse Visa last Wednesday. Sent Visa application in on 4th April. Sent police checks about the 22nd and had mu medical done on 28th April. Medicals took about nine working days to get to oz House who promptly lost them until about the 23rd May. They then referred the medicals to Australia for whatever reasons. They stated they received them on the 26th May and I eventually received the visa on as I said this last week.

     

    Was getting a bit stressful as we are due to complete on the house sale on 11th July and my wife cant travel after the 29th July as she is pregnant.

    Hello Dina,

    It's great reading your posts and seeing that you have your visas - well done you! Good luck for your August flights - you will be gone next month - wow! I am still biting my nails everyday, just waiting, waiting...

    Please would you answer a query if you know the answer that is! - If there is a query on any part of the visa - ie; we had to have a medical done for my son who is nearly 18 and not going to Oz - a month after I had my medical done - will this have halted the whole process until his medical is cleared? Also, how do we know exactly who our case officer is? I am assuming it is the person who has sent me emails from immigration, but the words 'case officer' are not apparent. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Dina,

    from Cazzie

    Thanks Dina. I have just checked old emails - they have a number OSF2008/then a number and (Unclassified) so I guess that means no case officer yet - Oh God! I don't think I can bear the tension. There is a named person and the email does state that they want to process ASAP but the words 'case officer' are not there. Maybe I will give them a call, but I have seen on other threads advice NOT to call them as it may irritate and ensure it goes to the bottom of the pile! Thankfully, the email does state that processing is 12 weeks from the date of application so that is good and hopefully true. Thanks again for all of your help - I guess you won't have much time for this now - you must be madly busy but happy. Cazzie
