Additional Processing Information

The Visa and Immigration Office of the Australian Embassy - Manila generally process applications in the order that they are received by the Embassy and every effort is made to decide applications well within our processing standards.

On average, a permanent visa application takes 2-3 months from the date of visa lodgement to be allocated to a case officer. The Manila Visa Office will not respond to general visa status enquiries of this nature until after a case is allocated to a case officer.

For information regarding our average processing times, please visit the department's website. See: Processing Time Service Standards. Please note that these average processing times are indicative only. Individual cases may be decided in longer or shorter periods than the service standard, depending on a range of factors, individual circumstances, the complexity of each case and the time taken by applicants to respond to requests by their case officers.

sorry, forgot about this thread hehe :)

we got a case officer within 1 week of my posting in this thread,
so as of 20th we have submitted all extra requirements which was 3-4 things

one thing we needed which we couldn't supply(hope it doesn't affect decision!) is that she could not get the non-conviction letter from Lebanon as she worked there for 2 years, but she applied for it at the Lebanon embassy, she will receive her non-conviction letter in 2-6 months, by that time the decision is already made! grr...

she sent an email to the case officer mentioning that we were not able to submit the 1 requirement within 28 days, but met all other requirements

now the waiting game begins..the final answer
