189 visa routine processing

I applied for the skill select 189 in December2012, and got the CO on the 24 th of January,and she wanted some more documents from me. I sent her all documents the following day and she sent me an email acknowledging that she receieved my documents on the 1st week of february2013. In the email she wrote that "the information has been included for routine processing of the visa". What does this exactly mean???It has been already more than 3.5 months since i lodged my application and i'm very worried.Can you please give me an idea of what is happening or why it's taking so much time!
Would be a great help if you could help me

Hi Tafsir -

In short, it means "don't get too excited, the (routine) processing of your visa will continue" and typically means there are significant steps left to go. I'm guessing that your application may be held up with an external security check or they may be doing checks on your work experience or educational quals. Unfortunately there's not much you can do at this point other than wait. Wish I had better news for you!

You might check in with them in another month or so to see if they need any further documents, etc - this works sometimes to "remind" them about your case, but be very nice and polite about it to make sure you're not seen as hassling them, etc.

Best,

Mark Northam

I think you have applied for a visa by yourself because if you took a little help from the immigration and visa consultant then you would have never faced this kind of problem. And if you still do not know what to do then you must first consult with an immigration consultant. They will readily assist you what should you do.

No, I don't think so - it's still a bit soon. If you have heard nothing in 2 more months, that may be cause for some concern.

Best,

Hi Mark

I had applied for 189 on 29th oct 2012. I have submitted all the documents the CO requested and completed medical on 28th November 2012. CO has received all he documents. on 10th December 202 CO requested for form 80 which sent on 12th December. On 17th February I had emailed CO about the status of my appl. 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
Mushtaq

Hi Mushtaq -

I'd wait at this point - we're seeing some signficant delays in 189/190 visa processing now, and the rapid processing times we saw towards the end of last year are not nearly as common now.

Sorry I don't have better news - but remember the delay is not necessarily bad news. Form 80 means a background check and possibly an ASIO security check, which can take months.

Best,

Mark Northam
