Please be patient. The Immigration Department is understaffed, so applications are taking longer than they should. Note also that you are applying for a permanent visa, so the security checks take a while..

yep in the same boat. Completed all documents on 25th January. Haven't heard anything. I did email them and asked them, and they said that they have everything they need, they are currently doing background checks. Does anyone know how long does background checks take ?
