Hi Saifullah

Where can I check the time frame. Actually I have applied in oct 2012 and still waiting for he outcome. Last contacted CO on Feb 2013, They said that my application is going through routine processing. So by when can i expect to receive the result.

Thanks

CO replied on 18th Feb saying that my application is going through routine processing and ensuring all the legal requirements are met in relation to an application can take some time.
Since then I have not heard from my CO. Is there something to worry about or should I contact CO again or just wait.

Please suggest.

Thanks

Hi Mushtaq -

I think enough time has passed for you to write to the CO and enquire as to whether they need any further documents or information. DIBP's posted estimated times for 189 visas is now 12 months, so you're still within the estimated period (and they only estimate that 75% of the visas will be completed in that period - what a statistic!) so you may have to be patient for a while longer.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Ranjit -

Not sure there's much I can do. DIBP estimates 12 month processing time for 189 skilled independent visas - here's more on this:

Client Service Charter

All you can do is wait - wish I had better news!

Best,

Mark Northam

I'd give 2-3 weeks before writing again - many times it takes more than a few days to get a response from them.

Best,

Mark Northam

- Should I be worry about this? And by any chance is there any estimated time for my final decision? Of note, my field and area of expertise had nothing with military or chemical things.
- I wanna go and visit my family. Do you think, should I wait till get my results? I mean does it influence my case if I apply for a bridgning visa B and go oversease for a trip?

Thanks
Hi,
No update related to my case. My lawyer adviced me that my case is still under external security check.
Mark: do you know any news about those who applied in January 2013, and went through the external check, and got their visa yet?

Thanks

Hi Mark,

I was filling out 189 visa application and got stuck at a questions which asks:

Have any of the applicants lived in a country other than the primary applicant's usual country of residence?

I am the only applicant in the visa application?

I have been living in australia since last 4 + years and travelled to india on a holiday few times and the trip was less than 3months each time..

what is my usual country of residence now?

I will appreciate if you can answer these 2 questions for me
Thanks,
Nick
