We are also waiting with ML for a 309 Visa.

Our application was lodged in Washington on March 9, 2013, and we received notification on April 16, 2013 that our case officer was ML and that our application had been lodged.

In terms of other deliverables, the state police clearance was received May 9, 2013, the medical check was received May 13, 2013, and the FBI check was received June 17, 2013.

Have heard nothing since.

Oh man... another person waiting six months already. I'm thinking the average processing time for the US will not be five months much longer.

Yep, been over 6 months now. My wife and I are starting get pretty nervous. We hoped to be in Sydney by Christmas so she can spend the holidays with her family, but that is starting to look unlikely. We have a dog who needs to go into quarantine, and in order to initiate that process we need 30 days of lead time prior to the 30 day quarantine process. In order to meet that timeline, we really need visa in hand by October 20th or so.

For what it is worth, we have been together for four years, married for two, my wife has an American green card, and we submitted a large amount of documentation (4 years worth of e-mails, pictures, travel stubs, joint bank info, joint insurance statements, etc.). I thought we would be a very low risk, quick to be approved application, but that has not been the case. Ah well, nothing to do but wait.

I e-mailed ML yesterday, requesting whether there was any documentation we could provide and letting her know that we hoped to be in Australia for the holidays and that because we have a dog, we need a large amount of lead time before making plans to send her.

This is the response I got:

"Dear Mr ______,

Thank you for your email and update.

Your new case officer is Ms RM and the application has yet to be assessed.

I have had a quick glance through your file and can see you have provided the police clearances. Have you conducted the medicals?

Kind Regards,

ML

Immigration Officer"

I can't believe that the application has yet to be assessed after 6 months and 2 weeks.

Does anyone have experience with RM? Does she tend to be fast? Slow?

Thanks.

Hmmm... that's interesting. My case got moved from ML to RM as well! I wonder if ML was overwhelmed. OR, I know with some embassies, once an application has been assessed by the normal CO, they pass it to a senior CO for a cursory assessment and official OK/rejection. I'm hoping maybe that's what's going on with ML passing to RM and that that means ours are that much closer to decision... but no way to know, really. How frustrating that she didn't know if you had provided your medicals yet! Maybe something happened with your panel doc submitting them, or they got lost in the shuffle and that's what the hold-up is with your application! Hope not!

Yeah, we don't know what it means. I have multiple confirmations from the visa processing center that the medicals were received, so we are pretty confused that ML couldn't see that the medicals had been received. Perhaps that is why we have not yet been assessed.

In terms of being switched to a different CO, hoping this means that we are in line to be approved although there really is no way to know. We really need some resolution by late October to keep to our timeline, so we are keeping our fingers crossed.

Well, not sure if this is good news or bad news, but we're yet another case that has been switched to RM. At least, that's what we think - we emailed ML last week and got a stock standard reply email from RM today.
