Applications through Dubai

Hello

I recieved the same reply from the Australian Consulate in Dubai when i enquired if they had recieved my documents, since we sent them to Pakistan first, which had to be transferred to Dubai.

After 2 months i hadnt received any reply regarding missing documents, etc. So when i enquired i recieved another reply similar to the first. I asked a few questions but they just sent me a standard email which i think is sent to anyone who asks about the progress of their application. (Ive posted their reply below)

"Thanks for your e-mail. Please be informed that your application was
received in Dubai in May 2010 and has been queued for assessment. Please note however, that we have a large number of cases pending interviews. We are endeavouring to interview all outstanding applicants as quickly asreasonably possible, in date order of receipt of application in Dubai. Youcan be rest assured, that other aspects of processing of the application will be undertaken in a timely manner whilst waiting for the interview turn. Also please be informed once we assess your application then we will send you an email with the request of additional information and documents if any required, also you will be informed about the interview whenever it will be scheduled. If you will be asked for an in person interview then you be informed to go to Australian High Commission in Islamabad-pakistan for an in person interview, but it's up to the outcome of the assessment that will be done on your application."


How often should i send emails enquiring the progress of the case?
Since the applicaion i have sent only one email?

Thats all for now...i think...

What is my application status?
While we endeavour to process all cases in a timely manner, processing
times for applications can vary.

We are usually unable to advise applicants of a decision date or to
provide progress reports within usual processing periods outlined above.
Applicants will be notified once a decision has been made, or should
further documentation be required. Applicants are advised not to make
final travel arrangements until they receive advice from that their visa
has been granted.

6. How long will it take to process my visa?

Processing times commence from the arrival of complete documentation
received in the Visa and Citizenship Section of the Australian
Consulate-General, Dubai. Please allow a minimum of two additional
working days for applications and passports submitted by mail or
courier.
The service standards are indicative only. Individual cases may be
decided in longer or shorter periods than the service standard,
depending on a range of factors, individual circumstances and the
complexity of each case.

For applications lodged and processed in Dubai, average processing times
are:
Visitor Visa/Short-stay Business Visa 2 weeks
Transit visa 2 weeks
Resident Return Visa 2 weeks
Registration of Citizenship by Decent 2 weeks
Student Visa (Level 1-2) 3 weeks
Student Visa (Level 3-4) 4-6 weeks
Spouse/Family Migration 6-10 months
Refugee and Special Humanitarian 6-10 months

Goodluck to anyone waiting on a decision, the hardest part is the waiting and not knowing or being told anything.

You already have some times there and as you'll find @ Client Service Charter
And there can always be exceptional circumstances like changing staff numbers that can make significant differences in processing times.
Continual emailling will really not do anything other than distract people from processing and Patience is certainly best.
