Congrats jenvas :)
What time AEDT did you get the email?

I got it at 11.41 AM to be exact :) Funny story, I logged in to my immi account at the exact same time to show my BVB grant notice to my colleague. When I opened the status of application was received and when I traversed through the site to view my BVB grant notice message, I saw a change in my status to finalized and my 189 grant notice message as well!

I got my grant this morning by God's grace. Case updated in immitracker

My timeline below

Software Engineer - 75 points - Onshore single applicant

PTE (90 All) - 1st Mar 2018
ACS +ve assessment - 7th May 2018
EOI update with 75 points - 29th Jun 2018
ITA - 11th Sep 2018
Lodged - 28th Sep 2018
Medicals - 4th Oct 2018
Bridging Visa A Start - 15th Dec 2018
Bridging Visa B applied and granted - 17th Dec 2018
Updated residential address as I traveled to India for more than 14 days - 20th Dec 2018
Came back to Aus and updated my Aus residential address - 11th Jan 2018
Grant - 14th Jan 2019


Note:

1. Not sure if Employment verification was done and I never checked with anyone. I claimed 10 points for Aus employment
2. My work visa expired on 15th Dec 2018 so I had to apply Bridging B to travel outside Aus
3. I updated my address details online via immi site. No forms were submitted. I called DHA and confirmed before updating

Please feel free to ask any questions related to my case and I hope everyone waiting will get theirs soon.

Congrats

Thanks mate that's great to know :)

I just realized yours is 190 and you have added de facto later in your application. All the best to you and your partner in getting the grant soon.

Now that is a visa grant story if I heard one :D

Thanks for the well wishes! Hope I'm 2-4 months away from some good news myself.

Swetha, may I request you the format you followed and the details you exactly provided? I will get it attested by my friend who is a PR holder.

Haha yeah! It was funny and the best way to start my first day back at work for this year :) Thanking God every minute that I get to see this moment. I really wanted my grant to come through before 20th Dec'18 as I had planned my travel. I was even postponing my BVB application till the last minute. But once I got my BVB, I did not have any anxiety or frustration that I had during the waiting period. I think it was all related to me leaving the country for my holidays haha. I never really checked the immi site, forums or trackers throughout my holidays and only opened it on the 11th Jan '19 to update my residential address. So yeah, feeling really blessed and happy.

Also, from what I can see from the trackers, you should get it in 2-3 months.
