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
