Hi Lisa, no news, but I'm kind of pleased, we are really hoping to go October next year, (could go sooner, but that would be optimum time) not looking to hurry things along! Have you been assigned a case officer yet?
hi im new here, i applied my visa last june first week and received notification message that they received my documents, i applied for tourist 1419, my bf is Australian, its been 1 and half months now and no feedback at all and my bf said it must be like only 2 to 3 weeks for approval, anyone has an idea please. thank you
no I haven't yet. what visa did you apply for?
I wrote my MA to ask about the processing time. She said, they have been notified that they expanded the allocation time from 10 to 20 working days cuz of so many applications in June. once a case officer has got the application it should take 2-5 working days till a desicion or to let you know they need more information. they think to get in contact with a CO end of next week.
@ ladylee: thats long.. I thought tourist visas should be quicker but I am not sure. maybe get in contact with them?
hi lisa, yes thats what we are expecting too but its been 1 and half months now. I made a follow up and they said the processing time is average 1 month less than or more than, but my bf said its very unusual. I am very confuse now.
