One case on the gday.ru forums in Russia of a 309 defacto taking 22 months. This was in 2010. The usual standard reason for the delay was external checks...

To be fair to all the embassy's seem to make a call on genuineness and internal approval in max 7-10 months. The delays beyond that must be for either security checks or health checks.

That is an umbrella group that includes ASIO.
Do you mean they outsource to a foreign partner (i.e. DFAT's friends in USA/Canada/UK), or a private firm?

This has always made me angry and confused. I have a thought on parent visas: if we consider for the sake of this argument that most people who apply for their parents to come are in their 30s and 40s - i.e. given time for themselves to migrate and to get established, etc. - then it follows that their parents are at least in their 50s and 60s when they apply. Realistically, and I am sorry about this, but how many of those parents can hope to live the 15-20 years that it takes to get to the top of the waiting list? Considering that many must come from countries with a lower standard of living and therefore lower life expectancy. This same waiting list appears to include Aged Parent visa applicants too.

Wow it sounds like you are almost there. Are you in Malaysia for work or as refugee?

Hi guys, just been told that the fact that I am now waiting for almost 13 months is no big issue and I should therefore complain again to the IGIS in August 2013 when I have been waiting for 18 months.

This is such poor service......PEOPLE IS OUR SERVICE?? Please!

I got the same thing last November. I was told to complain again in May. Well May isn't too far away now so we'll see if we get anywhere before then. If not, I have every reason to get really peeved off with them and it should be finalized right away.

I think you did the right thing because now you have a huge right to complain if nothing is done by August. It's in writing after all.
