820 onshore submitted to Perth... a few ???

Hi all this is our first time posting here but we are long time stalkers and this forum helped significantly with sending off what we think was a decision ready application!!....My hubby and I submitted our 820 onshore visa application in Perth at the start of May 2013, the payment was taken out on the 7th.

I just wondered how long it should take for them to send us any kind of contact? I thought at least they would email to say they had the application, Especially since they were fast to take the cash.

Also I have heard Perth are quite good with processing times so would love to hear how long the processing time was for fellow west aussies and west aussies to be.

Cheers

My son's partner (Canadian) submitted her application on 4th Nov 2012 by hand in the drop in box at the Perth office. Acknowledgement letter was dated 5th Nov 2012 and received within a few days. The letter stated processing times were 9 - 12 months.
Nothing heard since and no CO appointed.

Thanks so much for the reply. Do you know if they submitted their application decision ready?

I lodged my 820/801 at the Perth office January 2013. A few days later I received a letter to confirm acceptance of my application and said average processing time is 13 months. I haven't heard anything since.

Also, the DIAC will not accept your application for processing until the funds have cleared your account which is why they did that before making contact. And your application acceptance letter will arrive by registered post, not email. Welcome to the waiting game!

We posted our application via express post - may 1st. We have had fee deducted also (yep, they're quick to do that!!) but have not received our letter yet either. My agent tells me that there is now a 2 - 3 week turn around time in receiving the letter due to backlog....

Good luck

If any of you would like to add a timeline to your signature there's a great sticky in this forum (here) explaining how to do that. This keeps the timeline stats up to date on the website and helps people answer your questions quicker without having you type out all the details of your app.

Very impatiently joining the waiting game....
Is it true you can't send in form 1005 to get working rights until your last visa expires??
