Thanks for your support.

I know it's hard seeing others sent after yours granted before but each application and also processing centre are different with varying issues. I'm 10 months into my wait - I was told 6-9 months. I may have to do another police check if it's not processed soon. So it's not just you waiting-I'm with you. We'll get there. Hope you hear soon.

Question 885 Visa Applications after July 2011

Has anyone here filed their visa applications after July 2011 for 885 visa? I have filed my application in early July and am still awaiting a CO. Don't know how long would it take as a couple of other who filed their applications in June end already have their visas

Hello!!!

Thanks for your supportive and optimistic mind. I feel nice hearing you - WE WILL GET THERE! WE WILL!!!

Are your 10 months waiting since you lodged your application or since you had been assigned CO? What's your visa subclass?

I used to check the progress of my application @ DIAC website 2~3 times a day, 5 days a week --- I doubt 'How patience I am?' I feel very bad on Friday evening (next 2 days are weekend to my CO!!!) and start cheerfully with infinite enthusiasm and expectations on Monday morning to see any update/progress of my application. I passed 24 weeks doing so and there will be ...

regards, ahamid

Hi,

I'm applying for 820 - defacto visa. It's nearly 10 months since I applied for the visa. I was previously told a CO was assigned same day but have since found out I do not have a CO. When I spoke to a lady in DIAC at the 9 month mark she remembered my file (had the work extension lifted not long before) because we are in the country. She mentioned she thought we hadn't supplied a lot of financial info for my partner. We sent tax returns for last 2 years and bank statements. But I think it was more to do with us earning so little here compared to the city, personally I earn a third of my city salary. So I sent a copy of our savings which we set up in June showing we save $2k a month and both 2011 tax returns. I also failed to include proof of residency for my stat Decs so have sent 2/4 of these this week.
I thought I had a very very well prepared application - yet I obviously didn't. I'm happy to wait as I am with my partner - not sure how I'd be if we were apart.

To the best of my understanding only a CO can decide if your application is complete or not. So you shouldn't be blaming yourself for a bad job as no one at DIAC has even seen your application yet.

Thanks Davec. However I think I jinxed myself.
I received a letter requesting 2 new stat decs (not sure why as they mentioned the 4 I'd sent eg that my bro in law put 2009 instead of 2010 & he needs to resubmit).
We have both been asked to do uptodate stat decs from us.
Also that we don't have anything with my partners name at his brothers address - they are fine that I lived there. I have 1 bill dated March (we need to prove Jan-June).
Also at end of my 2nd WHV I gave address as farm as we didn't know long we'd be at his brothers etc & if anything was posted back the farmer lady would just drop off at partners mums (owns hairdresser in main St). It's a very small town so getting mail is never a problem - but how do you explain that?! This shows a 3 day crossover from when we moved town. Which never happened it was just a return address for ease.
I have a lot to do! Any advice appreciated.

I am confused here....I am sure you do have a CO....or else these guys would have never come back to you asking for this stuff. Anyway, I am not really sure about what you can do in this case. Hopefully, someone else this forum can help.
