The worst part of applying for a Visa is not knowing when it will be granted......I'm sure that at some point they could give people an indication on which month the Visa will be granted. Yes every case is different .....but what they should do is require all the necessary information at the beginning and then give an estimated processing time depending on the individuals application. And if there is a delay all they have to do is keep the person updated!! I think that will be more professional. If When I applied I was told that my Visa will be granted in February....I wouldn't have stressed about it...... I would have just waited for my turn.

This system is just causing unnecessary stress! And I don't think it is always CO's fault.

Anyway lucky for me I get to fly to Bali on the 25th Feb and come back to Australia on the 1st March with a VISA!

This sounds like a great idea. I think however they are too disorganized and don't have good service level agreements with external agencies and enough resources so it all goes out the window.

The pain, stress, anxiety it causes is inhuman for sure xxx

Just a quick update. I wrote a letter to the Inspector General of Intelligence and Security regarding the fact that my visa has exceeded the 12 months (if your visa exceeds 1 year you are allowed to lodge a complaint). Anyway, they just got back to me and said they have looked into my case and there is no unexpected delays in processing. So I should just sit back, relax and wait till August 2013 .....which will be 18 months of waiting for me. And then they add a note..... by the way the length of processing your visa does not indicate the outcome.....so basically I can wait this long and still be denied a visa.


Now why didn't I take that boat again if it meant I would already be with my fiance????? :-)
Sorry, I have just woken up, hungry and then seen this crappy email from IGIS.

I wish you all GRANTFUL end of February.

Hi, we got the same letter from IGIS, they are a waste of time really, I don t believe that they have looked into our case, as they replied within 2-3 days, with the same pro forma letter, only the dates are different. I am going over to Berlin at the end of March to see my fiancée after being 8 months apart. I have requested my CO to give me an appointment time, as I want to meet her in person and discuss our case. On the 2nd of March it will be 18 months since we applied for PMV. She will probably not reply to my email, but I will go anyway to the embassy and try to talk to someone. Honestly I don,t know what else to do. I am desperate.

It is so bad what ASIO are doing to people. I think you should for sure go and see your case officer. Have you tried to give her a call? I sure hope that you get it the PMV soon. So now I guess I have at least six more months of waiting. Who knows....it could even take 24 months since ASIO feel too sweet to share any info with anyone. Such bad service.
