Its been 2 months since I passed the test and still waiting. Anyone here in the same boat waiting for 2 months or more after giving the test ?

Getting a bit worried now. I wonder what is holding up my application ? I even called them up today to find out but they said I need to wait they provide any updates on my application.

They say that most are approved within 6 months of the test but that is not always the case. I read of someone waiting for approval for 2 years (and still waiting)! Another one I read is currently waiting 10 months.

I have also heard of a couple applying together (both from the same country), one gets same day approval and another waiting months.

All you can do is wait I guess.

Hi Mish and All,

Its a guessing game when your time will come for the approval. Congrats for those who got their approval early.

Let me know what the FOI says. What I have heard is that they just give a screenshot of the application and its very hard to understand what lingo/jargon means. Anyways let me know how it goes. Based on that I will decide whether to also apply for FOI.

Regards

Police checks and I believe they do security checks too.

Hi Bamboradi,

I will send update everyone once I have the FOI details. They have 30 days to reply as i have sent them an additional identity document to prove I am who I am.if only they are fair and process applications based on the order it was received.

Applied 30 March 2019
Appointment email 15 Aug 2019
Interview 11 September 2019

Got a shock to see the appointment email come through so quickly! Even my PR only took 5 months from application to approval. I've been very lucky.
