Arrow Student Visa (500) Delay

Hello Everyone,

I have applied for student visa (500) on 9th December 2016 for my PhD studies.

On 3rd January I received an email requesting form 80 and form 1221. I submitted both on 4th January and since then the status is Assessment in Progress

I have also emailed the Australian High Commission on 31st January regarding the delay. After 7 days the reply I got is that my application is under active consideration.

My course is starting on 27th February 2017. As a student I was planning to come to Australia atleast 1 week before the starting date. Since my Visa application is still under process, it seems unlikely.

Can someone guide me what should I do?

Regards,
Prateek

Just be patient. You will have your result shortly. Unfortunately, DIBP doesn't do priority processing. If they did then everyone would be asking for it and they would never get anything done.

I'm in the same situation as well, I filed for my Student Visa (500) in early Jan, got the request for form 1221 and form 80 a week later, submitted it immediately. Still waiting for the visa to come through, the enrollment for my PhD course begin on 27 Feb as well.

When enquired they emailed me the standard response that the my application is still under consideration, wonder what is taking them so long.

Do not try to enter Australia after the start date of your course/s.

Student visa (500) Delay

Hello everyone

I am new here so hope you will help. Applied for student visa(500) on 9 DEC 2016 and included my spouse and 3 kids within my application. I am going for PhD in Electrical Engineering from UniSA Australia. It has been 3 months and my application still under assessment. Is it due to the family members accompanying me in my application or you all are facing such delays? My course was going to start on 13 Feb 2017 and still I didn't get any response about visa. Any suggestions? Can anyone tell about maximum time till when decision regarding all student visa applications is taken. This delay is really disturbing my job here in Pakistan.
