Don't rely upon telephone. Email them or visit in person. Anyways its upto you how much you willing to get your grant. Cheers
This is what the agent at the Australian embassy in India told me. Because all the application visas for 476 directly go to the Australian immigration department in Australia. That is what i was informed by them.
So did your friend contact the Australian immigration department in Australia or the one in India ? It would be great if you could clarify that.
Thanks.

Hi all,

To clarify, I have contacted the Australian embassy in India and have been told that all migration visa applications (including 476) are dealt by DIBP on-shore (within Australia). Thus, I've contacted the department of home affairs in Australia and shared my application details to get precise information related to my file; however, they said that they're not obliged to share any information at this stage. The only thing they advised me was that my file is being looked at by a case officer, so I should wait until I hear back.

Later I've managed to track down the processing centre's (based in Adelaide) email and asked a few things about my file. Obviously, they haven't replied and I frankly don't even expect a reply anymore (since it's already been more than a month since I've sent the email)!

I am frankly loosing all hope in the Australian Immigration system considering that a temporary visa, which is only valid for 18 months, takes this long to process. Furthermore, they don't give us any clear indication as to when we can expect a response, which is not very nice!

This is the email id at which my friend sent an email via an immigration agent.
E-mail: [email protected]

He had received the grant on 2nd October. I had also sent the mail on 11th November. And have been waiting since then

I had filed my Australia 476 visa application on 5 the June and my status is still just 'Recieved' . I did attach all required documents but I did not get any health insurance till now . Do we need to attach health insurance along with the application . What about you all ?

I guess it comes down to the fact that they are not going to provide a clear cut response to the status of the application of ours visas !

I am also quite shocked as to why this visa is taking so long to process even though it is just a temporary one !
May I ask how you contacted them in Australia for your query ? I want to give it a shot even though I am not expecting a very informative reply if i get one at all !
