For GTE, there are many criteria that they consider, clearly mentioned in DIBP pages. Please google about it.

They don't doubt that you want to become a Scientist, but they should not feel (from the documents that you have submitted) by any chance that this person won't come back to his/ her home country after finishing the course. That's important for GTE!

Good Luck!

I lodged my visa on August 7.
After 17 days, i received an email requiring me to submit additional documents which i submitted after 8 days because i live in a rural area. So i had to travel to the capital city and get the required documents and then submit it. So after 8 days which is august 24, i submitted the prompted extra documents.
And now its been 18 days since and i still havent heard any news regarding my visa.
If i sum the days its now been exactly 35 days excluding the extra 8 days since i lodged my visa.
I know the maximum processing time is 2 months but i dont have any dependents and am registered for a bachelor degrees' course. ( I am a fresh high school graduate)
Can anyone suggest me what to do next or should i do nothing and just wait?

Hello Everyone, I got a phd offer from Swinburne University and I have applied for my post graduate research sector visa on 10th July 2017. I did my medical examination in advance and also submitted form 80 and form 1221 during my first application itself. On 21 August I was asked to give some more information in form 80. I submitted my renewed form 80 next day itself. Since then I have no response. It's been 79 days already. I submitted my visa application through an university authorised migration agent. Already took deferral twice from university. Any suggestions would really helpful. Thanks and cheers.

Hi Ashok19,

It has been the frustrating delay for many of us. Some are waiting since 10 months. Some got it in a month or two.

I personally have been waiting since 5 months exact. DIBP is processing Student Visa for PhD students as if they are processing PR application or H1B (USA). Its totally random. I hope they mend their ways, otherwise nobody from a good studies background would think of doing their PhD in Australia. Its not only our loss. For them as well it is a big loss.

Good luck to them as well.

Hello kk1153,
Thanks a lot. I agree with you. It is taking too long especially for phd students. They need to accelerate their process otherwise it will be very big loss for both students and Australia. Hoping to get visa soon. Best wishes to you also.
Thanks and cheers.

Hey guys,
I lodged my Vocational Training- Student visa on 13th Sept and couple of hours later I was requested for a Biometric and medical, which I submitted 1 day later.

It has been 15 days / 9 working days since the day I submitted. My agent told me that most of his client's result was announced within the period of 15 days.

Now, is there any way to contact DIBP other than the contact number they provided? I'm curious whether even a Case Office has been appointed or not.
