Just a quick update.
Got response from CO about processing times.
It seems that under current timeframe they don't expect results of current background checks until early next year and that will influence visa processing times.

Hi Mark,
I have been applied for 189 visa at 20th April, 2013. Recently I contacted with my CO regarding some issue and he replied me. So in his email there was something like that "At present your application is undergoing external checking". Could you please tell me what does it mean and how long it would take to finalise my application.

Thanks
Pial

Hi Pial -

That probably means ASIO background security checks (it's normal for this type of visa) and the wait could be months. We're hearing that these checks are severely backlogged at the moment. Sorry I don't have better news -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Babu -

Re: 1, that probably refers to external security checking by ASIO, ,which can take weeks or months depending on their backlog - no good way to predict.

Re: 2, that probably means that they have already received your medicals, but the online status system can be undependable. I would make sure you have your receipt for medicals, then wait to see if they request anything.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Babu -

Internal checking could be anything really - it's not a standard term that's used regularly. External checking likely refers to ASIO security checks which can take weeks or months. I would expect internal checks to take far less time than external checks based on what I've seen.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
