On a different note, has anyone got any tips for calling the Nairobi office? I tried calling several times today but each time the automated answering service cut me off? ?
Hi Sherohara.

My experience with Nairobi is don't bother calling them. Your only real hope is to email your CO. They don't seem to like any other form of communication. Regarding your question further up the thread, there have been a few Ethiopians granted this year around the 13 month mark but there is one in the African thread that's been waiting 15 months so that timeframe has probably shifted

Gerrywins, we are cheering for you very much. We can't wait until we hear good news from you! It's surely coming soon!

Thank you, Gerrywins. Where do you go (website) to make a complaint? Is that: Online Complaint Form: Inspector General of Intelligence and Security

Yes, that's it. Just fill it in and they will get back to you in a few days tops. Normally it is just a standard email they send to everyone who complains but at least you know they will have read your complaint.

With that complaints form, do you need to have been waiting 12 months for the security check itself? We've been waiting 13 months, but ASIO check only commenced 8 months ago..

Yes, as long as you sent your application in 12 months ago you are eligible. So as soon as you hit that 12 month mark you complain.

I received reply on complaint to IGIS about lenghty security check and here it is:

Quote:
I refer to your inquiry concerning any security assessment that may be required for this visa application and advise that there is no unexplained delay, illegality or impropriety by ASIO affecting this case. The application appears to be progressing through expected channels and there are no grounds for any further action by this office at this stage.

I understand that this visa application was lodged in June 2012 and more than 12 months has now elapsed without finalisation. However, many other applicants are also experiencing similar delays. Please note that the length of time taken to process the visa is not necessarily indicative of the outcome of the application.

I encourage you to contact the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) for updates regarding the status of this visa application. If you have not received an outcome for the visa application by February 2014 then you may contact this office again for another inquiry.

The same I got after 12 months and similar I got after 18 months, just the dates are different . I don't think they are helpful at all.
