How can it move from an already ridiculous 19-24 month esitimate to 20-26 months. I feel so depressed and desperate seeing this.
It's the middle of the year, I was told the waits went up around Jan but dropped after then

I feel your pain, it's hard to deal with, we just get on with our life, but the uncertainty is always there.

The system is broken for sure.

Looking at the spreadsheet, 6 of the 7 801 in 2019 grants have 2018 eligibility dates. 2 are similar circumstances to my wife - from the Philippines and originally on PMV, yet we've had nothing with an eligibility date of Jun 2017.

it really pisses me off. And yet my friend got it granted after 6 months, not long ago... It really makes no sense

Yes I thought they didn’t deal the cases in first in first out. But how come they did improve their speed but slow down again and I guess next month the speed maybe even slower as they got the easter holiday and have less working days.

If they did first in first out, the wait times would be horrendous. Imagine if they could only work one case at a time, and couldn't approve any others until they finalized that one? At first thought it sounds like it'd make sense but it's more complicated than that.

I don't work for immigration so I have no idea how they do it. It does appear to be random sometimes. I've always wondered if they have someone looking at them initially and funneling them into different categories. Some get green lit and seem to get through the system faster, others takes longer. I know background checks can take ages for some people and that is likely an additional cause to their hold up. Maybe they intentionally slow some apps down in hopes the relationship would fizzle out and that's one less PR to grant. Who knows?

It absolutely sucks that some people draw the short straw and wait as long as they do. Unfortunately, I don't know that we'll ever really know why.

I wouldn't expect it to work that way, I would however expect that an application would not be sitting there with no visible action ("This application has been received by the department but has not been assigned for assessment") while applications submitted 12 months later have been approved.

It wouldn't surprise me if some get "lost" in the system as well, which is even more shocking in the digital age.

Yes, that’s why someone can get their result after contact immigration. I tried to call their general lines and ask for updates of my case. They told me they have received everything and nothing is missing. And I have to wait. Nothing more she’s allowed to tell me.

Hey everyone. So I'm a Canadian and my partners Australian. We applied off shore and it took 23 months for the temporary visa to come through (Jan 2019). The whole process has been incredibly frustrating. We have applied for the permanent partner visa and have yet to hear anything further other than "Further Assessment"

I have a few questions for those of you in the process or have completed it. 1. What further information would they ask for at this point. 2. How long did it take for you to hear from immigration after applying for the permanent visa or length until it was granted. 3. Is there any media agency or other outside agency that helps with advocating or expediting the process.

Any insight would be appreciated. There are so many things I'd like to do that needs PR status however reading the other posts it seems there is nothing more to do than just sit around and play the waiting game.
