Thanks BonezAU, I hope a CO will contact my wife anytime soon.

Baligirl, my wife's application was lodged on 28th June and she got the acknowledgement of receiving the application from the embassy on 3rd July. On it, it mentioned approximately 12 month processing time.

I've recently complained about the lack of communication from our CO and have yet to receive a response. Mind you it has only been 3 days since I complained and the timeframe for any feedback is 10 days. I wrote to our CO again and no reply as usual. So, I will be calling tomorrow to see if I can speak to our CO or with someone that cares. Thanks for the advice Baligirl....

Update on the call to the Australian Embassy in Jakarta today.... After trying to piss me off at the switch board telling me that PMV applications had a processing time of 12 months and me telling them that our processing time stated 7 months, I told the person at the switchboard I wanted to speak to our CO about this... and I was put through to another lady telling me it was 12 months whereby this stage I said I wanted to speak to someone in charge.... They didnt tell me who they were transferring me to, and when someone finally picked up the phone... well well, it was our CO. He told me that he had not received email replies from my fiancee etc and that's why there were delays. I told him that it was impossible as she responded to his emails etc instantly and I had copies of them... He put me on hold and eventually found the emails! Anyway, after all this, we have found that the application is now on track to be finalised. I hope the wait will soon be over!!!! Thanks again Baligirl for all your advice and help...

Jagzone yep, I think all of us are going/went through Jarkarta. It used to be around 2 months to be assigned a case officer but after July 2012 the processing time increasesd to 12 months from 7, with it the wait for everything else. The whole process used to be much faster from all the stories out there but it seems to keep increasing at a steady rate. (Except for those odd lucky ones like Baligirls friend, just enough to drive us crazy!!) Keep emailing. You're lucky your partner got a tourist visa, it can
be pretty hard to get when applying for a PMV.

TLim that's great news!! Yay for finalisation!!!! Look at you guys taking action and getting answers woooo

Great news for a few people around here at the moment! We're at the 6 month mark right now and my fiance emailed the embassy 30 minutes ago and she just got a reply directly from her CO! I am really surprised.

The reply basically said they are waiting for medical clearance from Australia, please check with me again around the middle of this month.

I wasn't aware that after she submitted the medicals that it was sent off to Canberra for verification, but I guess that's what they do.

Praying that she can get the visa before Xmas!! Applied on 15th May, so 7 months will be 15th Dec.

I'm so happy for everyone here who got their visas already!!! congratz guys!! still long way away for me just lodge the papers mid october, done my medicals and now the waiting game starts i believe. From what i read so far i'm guessing id be looking at appx 5 months before i hear anything from DIAC, but just in case i never miss a day without checking my emails. Quick question for those of yous applied from JKT, you know the notice letter they sent you to do your medicals, there's a name at the bottom of the email, that wouldn't be the case officer would it? I had a hunch that it maybe just an admin officer or something..am i right?
Anyway, congratz again for you guys!!!

The name at the bottom of the letter is the CO. The letter my fiance got was signed off as:

<CO Name>
Permanent Entry and Citizenship Unit
Immigration Section, Jakarta
Department of Immigration and Citizenship

Good luck with your application!
