500 subclass visa delays


I am an Indian citizen and I study in the U.S. I am planning to study abroad for a semester commencing this July and I applied for the study visa online on 27 April and I submitted everything required. However, there has been progress on the application and while it's very difficult to reach anyone, the one or two times I have been successful, I have just been told that the visa is under internal processing. I applied for the non-award sector. Any idea why these delays occur and what I can do?

The delay is caused be two factors. One is that the Immigration Department is short staffed owing to government restraints on funding. The other is that all applicants are checked thoroughly for security issues. Applications are taking up to 6 months and more sometimes. So you just have to be patient.
