Welcome Pixiepirate. Happy to have you onboard. Could you tell us which visa you applied for? Wishing you a speedy grant. You are from a low risk country so yours shouldn't take donkey years like ours :-)

Hi all, and especially those of us who are waiting endlessly for our visa grant. We are waiting for 19 months and 13 days. The only thing missing is the security check. I have written to IGIS again, after 6 months have passed since my first contact with them in October 2012. I have got the same response back as the first time, only the dates have changed, saying that there is no impropriety by ASIO or unexpected delay!!! IGIS is telling me that only DIAC can put pressure on ASIO, and when I met my CO personally 2 weeks ago she was telling me that ASIO is not replying to them and I should contact my MP or whoever I can think of to change the system. It seems to me like a story written by Kafka. It is total tragicomedy. It feels like we are left hanging in suspense forever.

OMG I cannot believe that is what they told you i.e contact your MP to change the system. I also received the same email when my 12 months were here and they just told me to wait till August to complain again to them. This is so poor. Surely, isn't there something we can do about this. Who rates the service standards of DIAC and ASIO? if they are not accountable to anyone then how can we trust them to be efficient. This really sucks.

My fiance wrote to the office of his MP who then contacted DIAC. DIAC said that there is no new info regarding application. However next tuesday will be 6 months since ASIO requested for more info (which I provided immediately). Therefore DIAC should/are required to contact ASIO next week to see what is happening. DIAC also added that if the visa is not granted by end of June 2013 (end of financial year 2012) then it will not be granted until after July 2013 due to the visa grant quotas being reset.

This really sucks. I have no idea what to do. I have written to my federal MP a week ago, no reply as yet. I have complained to the immigration ombudsman also a week ago, still waiting for a response. I don't know who else to contact. If they treat me like this in an election year, what to expect later on ? I am happy to go as far as required, but it appears that nobody is listening.

June is the last month for the year 2012-13. I hope that the planned budget has not reached yet . if this is the case we have to wait till July. Best of luck
