For those of you also frustrated with the unacceptable increased processing times of 10-14 months, please write an email of complaint to Senator Michaelia Cash, stating the unacceptable processing times and discrepancies between processing times of other embassy's (eg only a few weeks for south Africa).

Her email address is [email protected]

My sentiments exactly! We're coming up to 7 months in a few days. Sitting there impatiently refreshing my inbox... Not a peep from the case officer, despite sending several inquiries.

Just noticed that they have now updated the embassy's website. It now says that the expected waiting time is 10-14 months. Until just a few days ago it was still 6-9 months.....

I also mentioned this in my complaint to update it. Perhaps they finally took notice.

I guess it's good they have updated it now. But so far I've felt like at least there was a chance they would get things done in 6-9 months because the official site still promised that... It's just a shame. I mean it's not like they wrote a nice letter to all applicants saying that they are really sorry. They just updated the site without notifying anyone.

Moin! We applied for a spouse visa on the 25th of April in person (wife is German). Our case officer is MB. Probably a very nice person. We wouldn't know. I don't know if it's official policy to ignore emails, particularly those with pertinent questions such as 'Do you need anything more from us?', but I'd argue it isn't a very good first experience with Australian bureaucracy (for migrants such as my partner).
