Yes I have a bridging visa! We have supplied everything except the medical (didn't want to risk paying $350 for the medical and have it expire before our case was even looked at). The main reason I was asking was because in my past experience with a student visa they requested a medical and then I got the visa grant a few days after I completed the medical exams.

I was just wondering if (and hoping) I could expect the same situation this time. Didn't want to get too excited just for more waiting!

You need the medical. They wouldn't proceed with the application until I had it done. Sadly that was back in June of last year. I have yet to hear anything. I have my Bridging Visa (which of course is automatci), but I've given up on waiting and have stopped checking the site for updates on my application.

I know many people have received they approvals within months, so you may have the same experience and some have been waiting much longer than me. There is no definite answer. Just a waiting game.

I hope it goes quickly for you.

The poster is aware. The question was how soon after doing a requested medical does the grant come.

The answer is we have seen it happen within a few days of completing the medicals, but some wait much longer. It varies.

Unhappy Waiting for 14 Months

Hi all,

We applied visa for my wife in March last year (2016) and have been waiting for the outcome for 14 months. We had even completed the medical before applying but I guess we would be asked to redo it. Rather disappointingly the application still reads as 'received' and placed in queue. I assume that means no case officer has yet been allocated to our profile.

I don't understand what might be causing this delay. I have read about inconstant timeline being discussed earlier in the post (to add my stories to it both my cousins 320(offshore - India) applications were approved within 12 months). But is their any pattern in the application that are getting delayed? For example, we have been adding documents/pictures of our travels etc right throughout the application process. Does uploading of new documents affect the timeline. Also my wife had to travel to India for a month last year on BVB. Do the application of BVB affect the timeline?

What has been your experience?

Also if I want to contact DIBP how would I do so? I couldn't find email address on their website, and we haven't been allocated a case officer.

Thanks

Maybe cause you are from a high risk country? I am not sure, I think they try to get all the low risk first? Maybe call them or email and ask, might trigger them

Oh I know how you feel! I am the same. Applied last year early March and still waiting. Soon I need to go back to my country due to my father's health issues. Hoping I would get my TR sometime soon.

Do you know any email address to ask them about any update?

There are people from low risk countries waiting 15 months plus.

The issue with the 820's is that in the acknowledgement letter that DIBP do not put processing times and just say to refer to the global processing times. The global processing times are currently: 75% within 17 months and 90% within 20 months.

When dealing with visa's you need patience, he wait for the 801 is long too.
