How long after case officer requests info?

Hi all,

I applied for my 461 visa in Auckland in April 2019. 11 days ago I was asked by the case officer to provide ongoing evidence of our relationship since April 2019 and a copy of my birth certificate.

I had 28 days to do so. I managed to collect all the evidence they needed and sent the next day. Now just waiting to hear back.

Does anyone know how long it is usually after this kind of contact before the visa is assigned?

Did u receive any update @melstark?
It’s been 2 weeks now since I submitted all the requested additional relationship evidence and I have heard nothing since. So stressful

Such a relief. In the 2 and a bit years I was waiting I didn’t have any contact from the office other than when I got granted bridging visas to leave the country. It seems quite a few visas have been granted recently so hopefully that means they are starting to process them a bit faster!

When did you apply? I was wondering if any applications have been processed recently, or if the "quota" has already been exhausted for this year!

Processing times have increased again: 75% 26 months; 90% 28 months.

I'm sorry to hear that! You should be next though!! Keep us updated if you get any good news!

I wonder what the current backlog is, and if the current processing times are putting people off. I applied in 2018, but I think I will leave to go back home before getting my visa (and withdraw my application).

That will be a shame if it happens. Putting in the application is a lot of work.

I think perhaps there's also an amount of people applying without a valid case as they know it will take at least two years before they get refused. Hopefully I'm near the end of the backlog.

I do wonder if it's slower processing for those on 461 who are no longer in the relationship, but there have been people on here in the same situation as me who've had theirs processed so I may be over thinking it!

Did you apply onshore, in Sydney or Melbourne? My understanding it that it takes longer here, and it has probably nothing to do with no longer being in the relationship.

My case is really straightforward (married for years, children, both me and my husband well qualified, healthy, enough savings...) but it does not seem to help. I feel frustrated to see that offshore applications seem to be processed much faster.

That is annoying if people apply just to get the BVA and stay longer... anyway I have lost hope. It will probably be another year before they process all the remaining 2017 applications, and start on the 2018.

Hi guys! I applied onshore on 7 Sep 2017, right now at 26 months. Called immigration two weeks ago and the lady checked my application (gave her my application ID) and she can see that it is still “being processed” and they don’t need anything from me at this moment. Have not done medical check or police checks. Basically nothing since I applied. My case is straightforward, received the visa when I was 15 (stepfather is Kiwi) so see no reason for them to deny. Just don’t understand why it’s taking forever and it’s not good news if some people who applied few months before me is not approved yet. Them increasing it to 26-28 months is very discouraging too. Was hoping I could get my visa before Xmas but now not too sure.
