Partner Visa Granted (Washington, DC, USA)

I applied for my Partner visa back in September, and received one email asking me for forward Medicals, and provide a local jurisdiction police check. I went the next week and got the medicals done, and mailed in the local police check results, and then heard nothing until Tuesday, when I got a phone call from my case officer asking about my wife's legal status in the US (my wife is a dual citizen).

After I explained that, and answered a couple of questions about my medical discharge from the US Marine Corps, I received another email later that day announcing that my visa had been granted.

I guess the Washington DC office of DIAC is not terribly busy right now. I suppose it's also convenient that there's a certified panel doctor about 10 minutes from home, and the embassy itself is only about 30 minutes drive. So I lodged all the paperwork in person.

They also waived the Partner subclass 309 temporary visa, and gave me the subclass 100 permanent visa, and it's all electronic now, so no requirement to take my passport to the embassy for anything.

Thank you all for your support, and answering all the questions that you all answer here on the Expat Forum boards.
