CO assigned: unknown

Date granted: 03 Oct 12!

On a side note, other then applying for bridging visa B, I didn't make any additional inquiry-type contact with immigration. However, I do remember that when submitting my police certificates, i attached a letter indicating that my application is decision ready. As many before me have indicated, this could be vital to getting a "quick" processing time. Maybe instead of calling immi, some could try writing a formal letter to the place they applied? I'm of the sort that formal documents addressed and signed have a stronger impact than a note in an electronic file saying that the applicant called- you know? Then the information on file would be in your words, not the impatient words of the call centre people.

Anywhoo, I wish the very best to all who are waiting. Xx
Such great news! I'm so happy for you! I sent in my application just a month after yours, so I'm not expecting a response anytime soon. My application is not decision ready because I can't get through the police checks in the countries I've been to without DIAC giving me a request letter for it. Fingers crossed!

Congratulations!!! Can you just add a bit of details for us who are still waiting, when and where did you apply, was it a decision ready application? I remember seeing your posts, but don't remember your timeline...

All the best!

Hi, I lodged in Brisbane as well. Just about to cross the 20 months waiting mark. I went to the office about four or five months after lodging to hand in some additional documents and went to do the same thing another four months later. However, this time the guy asked me 'if I was sure if I wanted to hand those in'. Upon my question why, he said that they would most likely take my case out of the pile, put the documents in it and put us on top of the pile again. Thus, putting us with the people who only at that moment had lodged.

So, I don't know if the length of my waiting has anything to do with this, but I suppose it's good to know for anyone out there. I also don't receive any responses on emails and going into the office is useless. So yeah. It's a waiting game really.

what that guy told you sounds like BS to me. i submitted a Change of Circumstances form via email with a note saying that I'd been waiting for 13+ months and 5 days later my visa was granted. perhaps what it really boils down to is the particular person handling your case, but i submitted that Change of Circumstances form specifically in the hopes that it would unearth my application and put it on top.

by the way, you STILL having received a response to your email, even after getting the correct email address.....? how many days has it been since you sent that last email....? seems really odd...
