There's no way to predict, Paul, as this is a visa they've totally done away with now and you're just waiting for spots to open up. It says on the DIBP website they can't predict how long it will take. There are so few spots, I would expect to wait at least several years, unfortunately.

It also says on the DIBP website:

Carer visa applicants

Applications for Carer visas with a queue date up to 31 March 2013 have been released from the queue. These applications will be considered for final processing as a place in the Migration Program becomes available.

Once the cap is reached for visa places that are available in the current year, applications that have been queued and released for final processing, but are not yet finalised, will be considered for a place in a subsequent year.

It is currently estimated that lodged Carer visa applications, that have not yet been assessed, are likely to take up to four years to be released for final processing (calculated from 1 July 2013).

Hey Guys!

Hope everyone is doing well. I thought I should share this happy news since the last working day of August 2014 is over :) I have both good and bad news :p:p

GOOD NEWS first :D :-
AHC New Delhi granted 25 visas this month on the thread for "Partner 309/100 Visa application submitted to AHC New Delhi". That has been the highest number of visas granted in a month for the calendar year of 2014.

Another happy news is that the waiting period between date of queue (DOQ) and date of visa grant has decreased to 35-45 days since DOQ.

NOT SO GOOD NEWS :( :-
AHC New Delhi's website was updated today and the case officer allocation time frame has increased from 30-31 weeks since date of application to 35-36 weeks :(:(
Below is the link from AHC New Delhi website:-

Hoping for a better numbers of grants in September. Good Luck to all waiting.

Kind Regards,
Becky

Thank you for the kind words Hassan, I hope so too. My grant depends on when I get my passport :( This uncertainty is killing me :(
And the passport processing is taking so long, so frustrated but can do anything about it :( I can't seem to catch a break.....*sigh*

Thanks again for your reply. Hope for a speedy grant for you :)
Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hey Sonakshi,

The processing methods and time frames for both PMV (subclass 300) and partner (subclass 309/100) visa are the SAME. There is not difference as far as AHC New Delhi's processing time frame is concerned. 8-11 months is AHC's indicative time frame and 12 months is the global processing time frame.

Majority of the cases (with no complications) are approved within the indicative time frame. As I mentioned in my earlier post, AHC is allocating case officers to January 2014 applications so you might have to wait for a bit longer- 35-36 weeks since date of application for a case officer allocation i.e. roughly 9 months since application.

Hope this clears up some of your confusion. Please do ask if you have any more questions. Good Luck!! :)

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hi Becky
Do you know how long AHC taking to grant the visa once case officer is assigned ? Thanks
Hey sandeep123,

AHC New Delhi is taking 35-36 weeks since date of application to allocated case officers to applications.
Below is the link from AHC's website:-
CURRENT AVERAGE PROCESSING TIMES - Australian High Commission

As per current trend, AHC is allocating and approving applications submitted in January 2014. Please do ask if you have any questions :)
Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Becky hope you are doing well.

The question sandeep123 was asking is about 'how long does it take from the date the CO is assigned to the visa grant'? According to my understanding/

Kind regards,
Hassan

Ooops!! Apologies sandeep123 :p
I'm losing my mind right now. Been busy preparing hopefully the final set of additional documents to submit along with the PCC as I received my updated passport yesterday evening. I'm planning to apply for the PCC in a couple of days. Have slept 4 hours in the past 2 days; I'm losing my mind :eek: trying to think if I missed out anything that I could use as evidence, thank GOD for Redbull!! haha! ;)

Your understanding is absolutely correct ;)
Thank you for the correction Hassan :eek:

As per the latest trends of AHC New Delhi (from the last 2 weeks) they seem to be approving visas on the same day a case officer is allocated to a file (35-36 weeks/9 months after application). I didn't post this update till now because this is very new and I want to be sure of the processing method that AHC will opt for has definitely changed before I post an update on the thread.

So far 3 applicants from January 2014 have been granted their visa straightaway as soon as they were allocated a case officer.
This is a great news but still too early to be sure whether or not this change is permanent or just a temporary thing.

Hope this helps. I apologise about the confusion.
Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Becky,

Thank you very much for the effort you making in knowing how DIBP works.
This is a new infromation in deed, and everybody will wonder happily with it. If a case officer is eventualy assigne after the 9 months, and the visa is granted within the same day, nothing to worry in deed. It means as you wait for allocation of CO, you are also waiting for the visa grant at the same time.:):):):):):):)

We hope it will be permanent through out and the same across all AHCs world wide.

I am happy to hear that you have secured your passport and you are going to apply your PCC. Wish you a wonderful time as you wait for the grant of your long-waited visa.

For how long does the PCC take to be given in India?

Best wishes,
Hassan

Not a problem! Happy to help :)

It is a silver lining among very dark clouds of painful wait for the stressed out and anxious applicants. Hoping and praying that after the 9 months (cases with no complications) wait for a case officer the visas are granted without any further hold-up :)

I felt like crying when the postman handed me the passport :p bringing my hopes of being with my partner once again back to life :)

The regional passport office issues PCC on the same day to the applicants whose passports are less than 12 months old (from what I've been told). For the ones that are older than 12 months, the it could take a few days for the passport office to issue a PCC as police verification is done (I'm not too sure about this as different city, state have their different procedure, it's confusing :rolleyes:)

Now since my passport was issued on September 04, 2014 I have high hopes and have been praying day and night that I will be issued my PCC on the day I apply for it.
Only time will tell ;) what happens. I will update you guys :)
Thank you for your kind wishes.

How are you going with your visitor visa application? Have you lodged it yet and which one are you going for; the normal visitor visa or the family sponsored one?
Good Luck!! Wish you a timely grant :)

Kind Regards,
Becky

Thanks Becky for the kind response.
I have not applied yet as I am waiting for documents sent by my wife from Brisbane. But everything else are in tact and ready, and even the form is filled in advance. Eagerly waiting for the supporting documents from Aus which I will probably get within this week.

I will go for the normal visitor visa, and in case rejected, I will immediately face the other option-Family Sponsored visa.
Will keep you in the loop Becky

Good luck for all of us.
Hassan
