We have not heard anything since, and the application status still says "Received" even thought we were contacted by the department through their generic email address.

It is so disappointing to see the processing time went from 13 -19 months (which is bad enough already) to 21- 26 months. Hopefully this will change with the new financial year kicking in.
Is there any updates to your application? curious as to how your progress is going since we are both being processed in Guangzhou

I just checked my IMMI account and discovered the department contacted us on the 30th October!! They wrote to my wife

"There is a criteria that the applicant has to be outside of Australia at the time of decision for the completion of the assessment. You are currently onshore and will be required to depart from Australia when the case is ready for grant.

Please provide your itinerary within 14 days of the date of this email."

So we have replied. We already have a trip planned to Bali on 7th December returning on 12th December which we have told them. Also planning a trip to China in late December. We asked if she had to be in China for a minimum period.

So we must be getting quite close! It's been a 9 month wait. Could have had a baby in that time!

p.s. They should have written "there is a criterion". Criteria is the plural form of criterion. tsk tsk.

Anyway we were also asked in March for medical. Submitted all that in March. Now it's October 2018 and still waiting.


Been watching this waiting room and thought to share. I will post when it comes through.

Emailing them didn't help. I just got a reply referring me to their service levels.

If anyone here is part of a wechat waiting room please add me.

My wife and I have 2 years solid evidence of living together. Mid Sept she came over on a tourist visa.

Worst part of this is not being able to work here or set up a business on a tourist visa. Life is on hold for career and family planning.
Hope you will receive a big surprise before Xmas.I think you haven been contacted by the CO very quickly. My husband and I have lodged our application back in June 2018 and have got nothing from them so far

Applied PMV300 offshore March 2018.
Mid September, applicant asked to go for medical and sponsor for AFP check.
Early November, applicant had 40 min phone interview in China.
Mid November, applicant asked for AFP check, single certificate and notary birth certificate.

Problem is, she's never had a Chinese birth certificate - only family book, ID card and passport, and given the Byzantine Chinese bureaucracy, she thinks that she will be refused one as she has no other documents.

Where is your visa being processed? Guangzhou?

Well, it was submitted on-line in the IMMI process, so I imagine that it's processed in Canberra and China, but no idea where the call to her originated. She's in Wuhan, so Shanghai?
