Hallelujah! I got mine yesterday just within 04 weeks after submission, and when I am about to pop a bottle of $12,000 Penfolds Grange wine to celebrate, the alarm bells to wake me up for work!































So it was just a dream, pity me..! Have a great weekend everyone

waiting_is_happiness .... what a dream LOL. Have you submitted your application now? If so what is the date you submitted the paperwork so I can update the spreadsheet. I would imagine you wouldn't be waiting long for the visa considering you are/have submitted late.

Hi,
Could you please update me if you receive any answer from DIbp or ombudsman. My husband wants us to wait until Christmas, it will be 10 months by then and it would be reasonable to complain (Considering they never notify us about 12-15 mnths change).
I am interested to hear their answer. We have very good support network in our community. If they give us the old usual answer, we may need to involve others such as MP in complain process. You can pm me when you receive anything . It would help us to decide how we should approach them.
I understand that they have backlog and I m happy to wait if they are processing files according to date order. And we need to know what actions they are taking to address backlog.
In May 2015, I have provided immi feedback to pile 801 and 100 together or share the workload with Brisbane processing centre. When I called them and asked them about the process when they receive feedback form.Their answer was like " we transfered your feedback to relevant area of business and relevant business may look into your feedback when they review their policy ". I asked specifically when immi review their policy. He told me " Cant tell u exactly, it depends".
And when I called Dibp last time, operator said " processing centre is overwhelmed with the amount of applications". And I questioned him how it is even possible considering they have record of number of applicants receive 820 and their eligibility date for the second stage.

This whole process does not make any sense to me at all.
Sorry for long post.

Perhaps they are overwhelmed because they are also processing the visa's of all the illegal arrivals. Yes it sucks but processing times do change and are fluid, i highly doubt complaining even to the ombudsman will achieve much.
Waiting 10 months is really not that bad, once your heading towards 15 that is getting a bit much.

A friend works for a department in OZ processing visa's even she has been pulled from her normal work to also process the extra PR holders that have been rounded up by the AFP for having a criminal record.
Due to different reasons she said many departments are now handling a massive increase in workloads.

As I said it before I understand their workload and happy to wait. I only questioned the system when some files are getting processed within 4-8 months and other are waiting for 8-12 months and department claims they are processing files according to date of eligiblilty / submission. I know some applications can be complex than others and may need further investigation. According to department, like many others, our file is still in queque waiting for allocation since March . Then how they determine to process files from April and August.

Majority of other visa catergories such as skill visas are still getting process within standard times. if they have workload in other areas as you mention in your post , it should evenly affected the rest of the department not only the family stream.

I think the main issue everyone has is that 801 is taking twice or three times as long as 100 when they are the same criteria.

I agree with you Mish. I wonder if any of our valued MARA agents (Mark, Chris and Jeremy especially) on this forum have any inside information on what is happening, and what grant times they are seeing at the moment.
