Thanks for the info... if that's what they told you at the office in person it's likely to be true. We are high risk too, so it may take even longer.

It does - I wonder why they don't update it? It certainly is contradictory. I'm just glad for the bridging visa!

Yes..I agree... you can work and get Medicare...so that's a good start... take care Kangaroo girl... and enjoy Oz. It's quirky and imperfect sometimes but still one of the best places to be... especially with the one you love.

That doesn't reflect the actual processing time though. See my post above with screenshot. Current processing time is 12 - 15 months.

Thanks Dinkum. I'm an Aussie myself, my husband is the one migrating :)

Good luck to you too!!

Keep in mind when looking at timeframes, that they are quoted service standards (the "goal" so to speak) and "average" waiting times. So, in reality, both of those timeframes are misleading when considered in relation to an individual application.

It's so arbitrary that it's really impossible to have any realistic idea of how long it's going to take.

I'm choosing to just ride the wave and find that meditation helps me keep calm, when what I really want to do is throw things.....pointy things :P

I know a couple who have been waiting 23 months for the 820. But apparently the applicant is on a BVE and has been in a sponsored before, under a cancelled PMV.

I know of another couple who have been waiting 12 months, but the applicant has a criminal record back in his high risk country.

The time frames are guides only, but I think people who have straight forward cases are potentially going to get their grant a lot sooner.

Although hubby and I have only been waiting three months, with no word from Immi, we're just going with the flow of this one. We have nothing outstanding, no criminal stuff, no weird stuff, just me, hubby and our little one in a happy, harmonious relationship.

I do wish to further point out the incompetence of the Immigration Call Centre operators: I called up to see if they had received the Medical Checks from Medibank, the operator said, :yep everything is here, we have it all".
A few weeks later, we receive a letter from Medibank saying they haven't sent the Medicals to Immigration yet because of some outstanding test that needed to be done.
That's twice I've received either lies, or pure incompetence from a call centre operator. This is sad and unacceptable. #endrant

Thanks for your usual mindful wisdom... Let's hope all our 'dreams' come true.
