Hi Ibanez,
Your CO will ask you to submit med and police checks, but nobody can tell you when it will happen because there are so many factors affecting the timelines (type of visa, DIAC workload etc).
Waiting for a long time without any reply from DIAC is a routine practice, don't get frustrated and don't bombard DIAC with e-mails. It takes DIAC time to finish all reviews and then move to the next stage (requesting police/med checks). If there were outstanding documents it means it will take more time.
Be patient.
It may be worth poking DIAC with a signle e-mail/call after all the Christmas/New Year celebrations but don't push them.

All the best
Alexey

Hey Alexey,

Thanks for the advise.
My bad, I think my post was not clear the way I had written it.
I lodged my application in Nov 2010. Received first email from DIAC saying that I may go ahead and take my medical and police checks so as soon as the CO gets assigned the decision would be faster. So I did and submitted. But unfortunately COs first email in August (when got assigned) requested further outstanding docs. So I submitted them as well and as per our last correspondence she advised to my question that nothing else is required at this stage.
Currently checklist shows MET status for everything (including Medical and those outstanding docs and everything else I have submitted so far) since September. However, the list at all does not have Character clearance attribute in it. I hope you get it now. Its not there but when i had read some earlier posts at this Forum, it appeared to me that it should also be present in my doc checklist? I don't know why its not there?
I will definitely call them after this break and check the status. I hope they give some positive feedback
Thanks for your help. Hoping to hear from you.
Regards,
ibanez

Hi Ibanez,
Ok, I see your point now.
I think DIAC don't "tick" character clearance "met" until they complete all the checks.
It seems to me that police clearance is the most time consuming document to check (I have no idea how they check it , probably , communicate with the country of origin authorities).
DIAC didn't tick my police clearance "met" until the very last moment (for 7 months), when I finally asked them in Dec 2011 just to confirm that the documents were received and under review my VISA was granted (a coincidence).
Best wishes
Alexey

Alexey,

Thanks for the reply. So it means that there was a Character clearance field in your Doc checklist. See mine does not have it at all? That's what I am concerned about. On my document checklist there is no such thing showing as character clearance. I don't know why? However, I was asked to submit them which I already did over months ago .......... Any guesses?

Cheers!

Hi Ibanez,
Sorry for misleading you.
No, there was no field for character clearance on my docs checklist until the very last moment and that was a pain in my ......back. I thought that DIAC just didn't recieve the documents.
It appeared only after the visa was granted.
So I think they (DIAC) don't acknowledge the character reciept and proceeding, oddly enough, but that seems to be thier routine practice.
This may give you more confidence that you did everything right.

Best wishes
Alexey

No unfortunately not. Actually my CO advised me to be patient in last reply to my email. Its going through Security checks and all so it may take some time, don't know, may be a month or 6 months. no definite timeline provided.
Hoping for the best mate and praying.
Hows things at your end?

Cheers!

Don't worry Ibanez!!! Many of us are with you.

Applied on August 2010. CO assigned on May 11. Security checks are going on, on and ON. No definitive time frame from my CO as well.

I am knowing many of my lucky peers, colleagues, mates applying after me even applying in mid Nov 11 and getting Visa by Jan 12. Only 'Super Lucky' person like me are awaiting security checks.

Be patient. Our day will come ....

Take care. Bye
