Received an email for medicals/police checks for both me and my son last february 2018. (my partner declared my son so he can also move to Australia with me once I'm all settled.) It's now May 2019, still no word from the immigration and getting really frustrated with all the wait.
Immigration seems to be dragging application processing these days. My son's 3rd tourist visa application renewal this time is taking much longer. His previous visa applications were approved in less than a week, and now we had to rebook the flights as his tourist visa hasn't come through <img src="http://www.australiaforum.com/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" />
Just. So. Frustrating.
Hi Cinnamon Sugar,
Do you know if your agent has contacted the case officer to follow-up your application?
In my case, I have been on BVA for 16 months. I was also very worried as I haven't heard anything from them or even get the 820 grant at that time. So my agent contacted the CO to follow up my application. She told me there's no harm in trying. After she called the CO, they asked for additional information (Form 80). Then 3 months after, I got my 801 visa approved.
Also, make sure that you continue to submit new evidence to show that the relationship is still ongoing.
All the best!
