  1. Everyone... this is a short note to advise that Federal Police Clearance Certificates are now valid for 2 years. I attended my interview at the Melbourne Consulate. Given the delays in getting to interview (I had first got my police clearance certificate in March 2021 - I am intending to move in April 2022), I thought I would need a new Police clearance. I applied for a new certificate in January 2022. When I attended interview I was advised that the validity of the Police clearance certificates had been changed to 2 years because of delays due to Covid. Just thought I would let others know.
  2. Interviews are still happening in Melbourne. I went for mine today. In terms of the timeframe from DQ to interview, I believe it is quite variable atm depending on the type of Visa you are applying for and whether an expedite is provided. Expect it to take up to 4 months or more as I believe they have around 6-7 months of backlog atm.
  3. Aussie immigrants - I have created this topic to capture information regarding the following: News regarding the Relocation of the Sydney Consulate; Information concerning the Sydney Consulate reopening in North Sydney; Updates on the scheduling of Immigrant Interviews (either new interviews or the rescheduling of previously cancelled interviews); and News regarding other Australian Consulates (other than Sydney) being engaged to conduct immigrant interviews. Feel free to provide any information you have on these topics. Hopefully through sharing we will all be better informed.
