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

Processing times

Hi all,
Not sure who's still waiting but here is a page on the DIAC website that has info on where they are currently up to with processing.

Unfortunately i can post the URL as i'm a new member and this is my first post but from the main page, under Visas, Immigration and Refugees;

click Migrants
then professionals and other skilled migrants
then if you've already lodged an application
then allocations

Best of luck to all

Hey Wanderinghobo,

Thanks for the info, actually we are aware of that. Those are allocation dates of Case Officers to the applications. We are discussing beyond that now
Things can take time depending on your case and complexities involved even after Case Officers assignment because thats when careful scrutiny of your docs begin ............
Keep Posting ..........

Cheers!

Anyone has the idea of current processing time from the date the case is allocated to the CO for group 4 applications lodged in Australia, assuming that no further documents are required? I've heard many told me (including the migration agent) that most of the cases were finalized within 2 months. But when I called to immigration department, they told me that the processing time is 18 months. Which one I should believe?

Hey Janus,

To my understanding 18 months processing time is the overall period for GSM 175 from the date of lodgement. However, I have seen here people getting visas in 1 month to 6 months time after CO assignment. Sometimes even more. It really varies case by case.
Wish you all the very BEST!

Cheers!

Thanks ibanez for your response.

I know that it varies cases by cases. Is it the case that the application lodged in Austraila would be processed faster than those applied offshore? What are the factors affecting the processing time? Which processes take the longest time? From what I saw in this forum, it seems that police clearance check is the most time-consuming procedure, am I right?

Many thanks

Hi Janus,
It depends on the visa subclass you've lodged and whether your occupation is on the current list. For 885 applications lodged in Australia with occupations still on the list (group 4), we've seen most processed in 3 - 6 months and even had case officers allocated within 2 weeks of lodgement. It then depends on the level of processing and routine checks.

Obviously for group 5+ it's a lot longer.

Fingers crossed you get a C/O soon and best of luck.
