I donít know the cause of the delay,I donít know if I can personally send them an email since I have my reference number?
Hi CecNa,

Have you received your visa? I have been waiting for mine for 10 months now...

I got a PhD offer with scholarship from UNSW last Fall, and I applied for the visa in December 2018. I still haven't heard a word back (except for the standard application receipt). I have had to defer my offer to Term 2, 2019 (June) in hope that the visa will come in by then. If not I don't want to keep waiting, I'm just going to study somewhere else.

What I don't understand is who came up with this ridiculous system where some people get their visa in 24 hours (I know someone who got a PhD visa in 45 MINUTES!) and some never get it or hear back. My agent said that it's pure luck, depending on what case officer you get assigned to. Some case officers don't do any work at all, so your application will never get processed: and it doesn't matter because noone cares, they don't have any targets or deadlines to meet and they get paid whether they work or not.

If that is true this should be public knowledge. Australian universities should warn applicants of the problem and people should consider this risk before turning down offers from other countries such as USA and UK in favour of Australian ones. Instead, there is nothing about it in the news, or anywhere online except for this forum. I think we should try to get the media's attention, if not for ourselves, then at least for future students so they don't have to waste time and opportunities trying to study in a country that conducts their immigration business in this disorderly fashion.
Did you get your visa ? How long did it take ?

Hello Everyone,

I lodged my visa (subclass 500) application in July 2019 for PhD research degree and I am still waiting for my visa to be granted. So far i have not heard any thing from Embassy and my application status on immiaccount is showing "This application is currently being assessed. The department may contact the applicant if further supporting documentation is required."

One more thing I have also switched my university as the first university cancelled by scholarship due to the delay in visa process. Now I have uploaded the latest university eCOE to my visa application. I dont know whether I did the right thing or not.

I have also applied on November 8th 2019 based on fully funded scholarship in uni of Melbourne. Still the status is under further assessment. One of my friend who has similar offer and we did similar documentation and he got visa in 1 week.
This visa system is strange.
