What exactly does "decision ready" mean?

That medicals and police checks were included. Basically that there should be no reason for a co to come back requesting additional proof as everything is included

Hey Amandy

This will be a good comparison, I lodged a paper application on 11/12/13 as well so we can compare notes .

I just got an email from a support officer granting my bridging visa and they have already taken the money!

Sounds good.

However, it's also high risk vs low risk countries.
Was yours decision-ready?

Oh yes. Is your partner from a high risk country?

Mine was decision ready so I had included my medical and police checks and marked it on the front as decision ready.

Yes he is from Pakistan.

The processing times on the website went from 12-18 months processing, to 6-8 months. I wonder if this has anything to do with more staffing, online applications, more staffing at ASIO for security checks. It would be interesting to know.

Are you the type now to just sit and wait, or would you contact the department asking about CO, Interview, etc.?

I think I will wait, just because we're onshore, we can be together, I can work, so I don't see a huge rush.

I dont think everyone has to do an interview, and some people dont find out who their CO is until the approval! I think people advise that there will be a lot of waiting time where we dont hear anything

I can only dream that they have more ASIO staff. My partner is from a high risk country and we are still waiting on the security check.

I would wait for the case officer to contact you. Imagine how much time it would take for the case officer if every applicant contacted them. Also you don't want to annoy the one making the decision!

I strive on annoying the staff. I have been through this before. It's the only way to get things done sometimes. It happened to me just yesterday at Medicare where the lady didn't want to process the application for Medicare until tomorrow. I was firm with her and she did it on the spot like it is MEANT to be done. Another thing happened with my partner and another organisation, each person said they couldn't do what we needed them to do. We called back five times and spoke to five different people until we got an officer that was bothered to do their job properly.
I have many many examples. I emailed immigration regarding a cancelled visa, three times in two days and also called them three times in two days. The visa was reinstated in three days rather than the usual processing time of 4-6 weeks.

Anyways, it's my personality. I'm a doer LOL
