Hello everyone, I have lodged my ens on 20 oct 2016 and still no response and no CO allocated yet. It has already been 14 months now and really frustrated and annoyed.
MA has no idea with whats happening, even if MA looks confused with the applications and has no greater rights than any common applicant whats the point in them charging the applicants huge sum.
Does immigration feel no responsibility in handling the sensitive careers and lives of these immigrants? Don't they have any grounds to stand up to raise the voice against or is it everyone like me feel not to do so as it may effect the application.
My employer has given a commitment of further two years by filing my ENS but who should be responsible when the visa itself to be granted is taking 2 years, why should he be committed for the slack of immigration.
Can everyone share similar experiences and possibly reply with the post if anyone has been waiting so long.:mad::mad::mad::mad:

Migration Agents are not responsible for changes in government policy. There is a lot of confusion surrounding all the recent and upcoming changes, new legislation being passed, then being overturned and so on.

I take it your agent did a substantial amount of work for the "huge sum" you paid them? Did your agent charge you because they claim to have have "special rights" or did they charge you to undertake a specified number of tasks?

You and your sponsor have the option to complain through Global Feedback. Your sponsor can (and probably should) also contact his local MP.

Nick, you have misunderstood what I said. MA should have little more information and access to the applications he lodges. If not except with filling the application whats the difference in MA and applicant.Am not blaming MA here,am on their side but they should be given authority than an applicant.

I agree, but the DIBP does not really give us any special privileges, although most RMAs tend to have lines of communication and contacts not available to the general public.

If the Department decides to stop processing or delays decisions on certain types of applications for whatever reason there is little anybody can do about it. Most RMAs do a lot more than fill out forms and will follow up on applications when processing time exceeds official guidelines.

There is a widespread misconception how applications are being processed. Unless a lot of checking is required or important documentation is missing, most applications can be finalised in a matter of days or even hours, once someone gets onto it.

RMAs do have access to the online applications, but there is nothing to see there. It is not as if somebody is actively processing that application on a daily basis and is providing a running commentary on progress. Most of the time it just sits there in a queue until someone get around to picking it up. It's the equivalent of a paper file sitting in someone's inbox on their desk for months without anyone opening it.

I do understand your frustration. It's just as frustrating for us.
