Unhappy character assessments

Hi all,

I have tried searching on this forum for an answer to this but have not been able to find anything yet. (Maybe I didn't look hard enough, apologies of this is repetitive!)

Ok so I am sponsoring my Fiance, we applied for a prospective marriage visa and we lodged everything in Iran in May.

In august my partner went to his interview, got his medicals and police clearance all finalised. The Medicals which were then sent to Australia to get verified have been sent back and were given the OK.

Our CO have told us that we are now just waiting on the mandatory check results. (I believe this is the form 80 character assessment). This is processed in Australia I believe? The last time she told me this was about 3 weeks ago... My question is..on average (very roughly) how long does it take for Australia to process these character assessments? I just want to know because I am going absolutely crazy and am considering going to Iran for a few weeks to visit my partner but this all seems pointless now if we are going to get an answer soon? I have asked my CO and agent etc, but have not gotten a clear answer. Please somebody help!

Thank you all

Welcome to the forum vfu and unfortunately I'd suppose for global political reasoms Iran is classed as an especially HR country when it comes to security and I'd have no idea on how long the character check or the check of the check provided would take.

When you look at the total time range the immi site has for HR countries and May to now only being five months, you could have a couple yet to wait on the character check but that's just a guess on my part for I've got no idea what or how immi can do in way of further checking.

I think you just have to suck it up as they say and if you want to make another trip over there, do it for the whole process could be another five months yet.

Good luck with it anyway.

Thank you for your response.

Our CO said that this is the last step, once we have the OK from the form 80 character assessment then his visa will be granted as everything else has been done.

I certainly hope it does not take 5 months just for a character assessment
