Does anyone have insight into DHA's internal process for processing the SC-300 Visa Application? From the moment a CO is assigned a case to the decision? What do they do? Do they contact the applicant's home country's agencies, what do they contact them about when for example a police check is done from their home country, the applicant provided new documents, etc? Seeing somewhere that what causes a delay in processing is contacting Government agencies, but what is the purpose of giving docos that are certified when they will have to spend more time contacting those countries for details?

Just want to understand what is the purpose of delays in reuniting us with our partners/families, and how they justify such ridiculously inflated processing times when biological clocks tick for people to have a family.

Delays are often caused due to the numbers of applications and the limit on the numbers of visas they can grant.

If they can only grant a certain number, then some have to wait.

It is highly likely that the high prices for the visa were to cut down the numbers of applications, so that processing could be faster. But it didn't work, even when they doubled the fee, the month after we applied.

It is said that re-uniting a couple could be done in either country. It is therefore the applicants choice to wait for the preferred country, rather than be in the other country.

Very few documents are certified these days.
