Not impressed with 801 waiting (not processing) times

I was granted my 820 in April 2013. Additional information for 801 was submitted in June 2015.

I patiently waited 6mths after making my online 801 submission to call Immigration.

When I called this morning to ask for a likely timescale for allocation of a Case Officer for my 801 application. I was told it would be at least 12months from the June 2015 submission date before a Case Officer would even be allocated, probably closer to 15mths!!! Really took me aback - my application will have been sitting on a computer for over a year before anyone even starts processing it

When I was granted my 820, the stated processing time for 801 was 6-8mths (and rising), now I'm told my waiting time to start processing (!) is over a year.

I've been in Aus (from UK) for over three years and PR seems to get further and further away when we reach a significant date (e.g. eligibility to apply for 801). To say this news is disheartening to my Wife and I would be an understatement....
NOT impressed....

...anyone else with an online, onshore 801 application and from UK been told similar? or had 801 visa decided in less time?

The long wait

Hi DesertPea
This pretty typical these days, as you will see from earlier posts. Mish has kindly created a spreadsheet which you can access via the first post on this thread. It will give you an idea of current waiting and grant times. Being from the low risk UK, might give you a better prospect of an earlier grant. There have been a couple grants from UK recently. Cheers...

Hi
It happened to me too. After say 6 months haven't heard anything, we sent updated evidences to Dept (without a request from the Dept) and gave a call few days after. We were told that our application 801 started counting from the day we sent the updated evidences. We were shocked... Anyway, hopefully we all will get 801 grants soon.

Hi Melb
Sorry about your rejection. Did they specifically say in the rejection letter that it is because you don't have PR?

I work for the NT government, and I'm only on a BV. I guess not all state government require PR although most do seem to, you're right.

They should have had it on the job requirements if they are after PR or citizens. I remember when my husband was looking for jobs we would see "Only eligible for Australian permanent residents and Australian citizens".

Some interesting information is that it can also depend on what area in the company you work for. I know of one company where one job requires PR and others don't.

What kind of job are you looking for?
