Hi madawahdpl,

You think so? Yes client contact officer did mention CO in the extension email. Yes did live and studied in Australia.

Yeah then it is good news. If the client contact officer mentioned the term "CO" in his/her response of extension grant.

Just out of curiosity, has the applicant ever lived or visited any part of Australia?

Thank you.

Hi,

Yes I think so given the fact the term "CO" has mentioned.

If the applicant lived in Australia for a period of time my understanding is, it take slightly more time for the actual grant than for a person who has never even visited Australia. It is just my understanding with the people who I personally know. Must be because such people attracts more investigations, such as Australian Tax, AFP matters, Australian Debts etc etc..

However, this visa category is full of mysteries really. hahaha!

Regards,

Hi madawahdpl,

It is mysterious as you never know what will happen. Fingers crossed. Did you hear any good news about your application?

Hi,

No, we did not hear anything since August 2017. We applied 21st of Feb 2017. So it is almost 11 months now.

Only time the department contacted us was for medicals just few days after the lodgement and then in August asking for an updated SL Police clearance.

We then emailed the department in November 2017 through our immigration agent in Australia and received a response within a day asking us not to email them unless it has been 12 months since the application lodgement!

As per their website the global processing time for the particular visa category is now 11 to 16 months for 75% and 90% of the applications respectively. So my case is marginally meeting the 75% mark in a few days. Which means, my case is not going to be in the 75% at the going rate. Whereas most cases gets finalised within 9 months (if you refer to the excel file on this thread you will realise it).

Regards,

Hi,

No. It was never the actual case officer. Just a first name and a position number. I think they are assistants to the actual case officers to make sure they have all the documents they need to make the decision..

All they do is gathering required information I assume.

Regards,

Hi,

It was the same for me but only in the extension granted email they said "CO" granted it..hoping for the best...just a matter of time i guess even though it is very hard & i can imagine how it must feel after waiting this long ☹. Hopefully you will get your grant soon.
