protection visa being Albino

Hello All

I am an Albino my birth and came to Oz on a student visa and immediately applied for protection visa last november 12 . completed all my health
requirements and checks . had my interview done alomost 4 months back but
have not heard back from the case officer . I have called him several times as he advises me each of the time that the decision will be made ASAP .

Is there some thing to worry , how long do you think it would take . I am from Nepal and do not think it will really take a long time to complete the ASIo checks .
does any one know any other cases in Australia about an albino applying for protection ?
Someone please help ......! I am really worried ....

Hi Shrestha,
I work in Africa and often see issues with albino people being victimised.
In Tanzania albinos are protected by the police but even that protection does not overcome greed.
Many albino have lost limbs, fingers and even their lives to satisfy the witch doctors "cures"......

I think you will be OK and that it the general "long wait" for the decision....agonisingly slow....!

If your CO is always saying "soon" rather than "we will contact you" then that is a good thing.....delay can probably be just paperwork being processed...???
Or - is there a particular issue you raised about your life in Nepal..? They may have to check that out.....
Is there someone from the Australia Nepalese community who could advise you...?

Australia is very busy with immigration issues right now....at least you have your student visa current.

In some other countries albino is considered "lucky" or "gifted" by the gods......

Hope you were safe & protected where you were in Nepal....certainly do not travel to (remote) Africa!

Good luck.....
