Yes I would think so but since more got rejected I'm not sure. I did emphasize on how it's affecting my situation but didn't hear back yet so.

So our fate remains within the hands of DIBP and our role is just to sit back and wait. For those who may want to complain, please be advised that they are not investigating every case.

Oh Australian Immigration is a joke! They just keep prolonging the processing times so it's never accurate anyways.

Yes Donkey,'

It has been never accurate. And it is not consistent. And for sure we don't understand the criteria and method they are using. Is it eligibility based, is it the application date based, is it something else.

They don't feel what we are feeling so they process the one they want, they delay the one they want, and it is just at their wish. In my view.

It would appear the ombudsman got too many complaints....

The issue is that DIBP control the processing times.

It is alot of waiting. I assume that means you can't complain until you have passed the 90% limit?

My suggestion is to write to your local MP's and tell them that the 820/309 should be recognised as a permanent visa and explain the processing times to them as the extended processing times means longer time till citizenship (if the changes go through).

Mish it will be difficult to complaint past the 90% since the processing times keeps going up. It was at 22 months for subclass 100. Now it's 25 months .

How do you even complaint if your application is at 24 months and suddenly its goes up to 30months?

Exactly! DIBP controls the times which is the issue.

I just can't believe they have that many applications. I will be interested to see if they processed above or below their target for the year when they release the figures.

Hi Guys!

Like everyone, waiting for my 801 decision, we lodged our last application this past march 2017, but I have a couple questions regarding the new changes in citizenship requirements and how this affects us:

1. As with the new changes, we need to spend 4 years as a Permanent Resident in order to apply for citizenship. While i wait for 801 decision, my status is Temporary Resident, Im guessing this time does not count for those 4 years right?

2. I once read that out of those 4 years, you cannot be out of the country for more than 1 year to apply. I am heading home for 5 months later this year (sept to jan). As I am a Temporary Resident, and considering my application wont be hopefully approved till after I come back, Those 5 months away from australia dont count to that maximum 1 year abscence right?

thanks a lot guys!
hope you can help me a bit.
cheers!

Hi Syr,

I don't belief so. It is the applicant that matters to notify them when travelling overseas just to update the contact details as they may contact if need arises. In my view.

The answer to these questions is based on whether the changes go through or not.

As of right now, the time as a temporary resident counts. If changes go through, you'll have to be a 309/801 holder and time counts from when that visa was granted.
