Question RRV Waiting Room

Hi! I have read other threads relating to how long the RRV is processed but there is no single thread for it, so I'd like to start this.

I find it difficult that there is no way to find any update or approximate on how much longer my visa will even start to be processed, as all I have heard is that the estimate in the website is not something you can rely on, all you can do is wait. I'm already in exactly five months of waiting since I applied for my RRV. My father just had his RRV issued to him half a year ago, and we are of the same case. It only took him a month for him to receive his RRV, so I'm wondering why mine is taking this long. Did anybody take any longer than five months to receive their RRV? I would appreciate any feedback on this. Thank you!

No worries! I'm just really anxious right now and it's so hard not being able to talk about it with anybody. What subclass was issued to you? Did you fulfill the residency requirement?

I was told by a migration agent that this "12 weeks" estimate is not the same for everybody. It depends on your case. I'm definitely way past that at this point. 20 weeks and counting.

My case is bit different than most...I have lived 2 years of the past 5 years but I had a case in Australia which was filed after I left Australia, I also had similar case filed in my home country so I was stuck here. After hard fought battle, my case was closed in home country and I applied for 155 just before eligibility was about to expire but unfortunately my Australia case was still open when i applied, so I revealed all the case related information in the application form (Since then the charges have been dropped in Australia as well).

CO contacted me with in two days of applying and asked me to provide the court papers from my home country. I obliged and provided all the relevant documents. After that CO contacted me again in 2 weeks and asked for PCC for Australia and my home country, which i provided in first week of January (Both PCCs came clean with out any records because I was only charged but later both cases were dropped). After that no contact, I believe my immi lawyer has sent an email last week seeking an update but don't they received any email.

Don't know what's gonna happen and what to expect, my immi lawyer is preaching patience and suggesting 'no news is good news'...

Thanks for sharing your experience. As for me, this is my first time applying for an RRV. My parents and I had only lived less than a year in Australia. I didn't apply for an RRV at the same time with my father - I wanted to know first if he'll be granted given that we have the same case. So he applied, and got his RRV last year after a month of waiting. I applied for mine a couple of months later since I had to save up for it. But to my surprise....it took so much longer than I expected. But if your immi lawyer said that "no news is good news"... I'll just have to be patient then.

Thank you!!

I was pretty stressful experience for me, even though it took more than 100 days for me to get the visa, actually preparation was going on for almost an year. Happy that finally I have the Visa and will be flying to Australia soon, to get on with my life

I hope you and everyone trying to get RRV will get the good news soon
