Hi Prizefighter... your point is well made. It's probably not the only issue here, but security and background checks have certainly risen to much higher priority with world events in the recent times... cheers...

It's terrible that these immigration issues effect peoples lives so drastically but it is in Australia's interest to thoroughly look at every applicant right now and if that means delays so be it.
Security checks are suppose to be done at 820 or PMV stage.

I would imagine that security checks even a year and a half again wouldn't have been as serious or as involved as they are now with what has occurred only in the last few months. Bare in mind that with the granting of PR Australia is allowing us a step closer to becoming citizens. With that in mind it is in their interest to fully vet and investigate us all until satisfied. I don't have any issue with this.

Hi guys,
is there anyone here who has got assigned a case officer after having sent the 801 visa application online? how long did it take to have a person in charge of the application?
I know it differs from case to case, but what's the processing time to have the 801 approved?
thanks in advance for all of you that will give a feedback!
Peppe

Majority of people don't know who their case officer is until the decision is made.

There is a link on the first post to a spreadsheet with all the processing times.

If you have a case officer is a good thing. For low risk country the waiting time could be 3-6 months. I am eligible from the end of August.

So on the 23/11/15 it was my 6th month waiting!

I am from the UK ( low risk)

my eligibility date was 23/05/15 and i applied online on 24th March 2015 after i received email to apply and start gathering my info.

I have emailed and they said its now 12-15 months wait so my reply was that my police clearance and stat decs wont last 12 months so what do i do about them... no reply as of yet on my immi it says its currently being assessed by the department and they may contact me for more info

its crap i keep trying to just forget about it and when it comes it comes but its easier said than done when you see people get theirs within 3 months

i would love to have PR by this year but by the look of it im gonna be waiting until the new year

That's a very good thing, it generally indicates that a case officer has been assigned to your application and it is being looked at.

I would probably expect a grant soon, lucky you. My wife's eligibility date was in May 2015 and it still hasn't been looked at but she's from a high risk country.

Hold tight I don't think your visa decision will take too much longer.
