Congratulations. Which office did you apply at?

laska 03-19-2014 03:10 AM

i have applied in sydney, but i got an email from WA CO on February this year, so they have forwarded my case to Perth as many other cases

SC 300 - 820 is quick only a couple of months.
if you are applying for your first visa SC 820 then the wait is currently 18 months on recently released standards.
you will have a bridging visa in the mean time if your current visa expires. Dont take medicals or obtain Police checks too soon or they will expire

Thanks. We applied in Sydney too. July 2013. Nothing received from DIBP except the acknowledgement email. So happy for you. Enjoy Oz.

Now that I have seen some of the waiting times on here, I am starting to regret front loading our application with the medicals and the police checks. :confused:

I agree. We did our checks initially but will probably have to repeat them.

musti 03-19-2014 12:52 PM

my situation is : i've been waiting more than 24 month and till now i'm still on BVA

Dinkum 03-19-2014 01:00 PM

Understand. Patience my friend. Like all of us.
