ASIO Security Check Wait for Pakistani citizen

Hi guys,


I applied for onshore partner visa 26 months ago, haven't received any response from immigration due to delay in ASIO security check.

I wanna see how many are other like me out there from Pakistan who waiting for their security check and have applied for visa on shore.

Thanks,
Kash

OMG so sorry for the wait. Have you made any complaints regarding this?
We've only been waiting three months, 820, Pak too. . .
Do you have a case officer's email address?
See my profile and follow the link so we can discuss this further.

Hi Amandy,

I have made complaint with IGIS last month, they reckon everything is going fine with the checks and there are other applicants who are experiencing delays like myself.

No I dont have a case officer, when I asked this question to immigration their response was that once my security checks are completed i will be allocated a case officer, until then just sit tight.

Its so frustrating I can't put it into words, can't buy a house, cant get a decent job etc

My one friend from Pakistan has been waiting for 22 months already and other one for 8 months. That means I am not the only one facing this ridiculous wait.

Regards,
Kash

Hi Dany 777,

When I was coming from Pak in 2007 it only took like a month, but now its just ridiculous amount of wait for security checks. Hope we all get our visas soon.

Regards,
Kash

That is so sad Kash. There is another guy on this forum awaiting 820, from Lebanon, who has been also waiting 26 months. This is ridiculous!
At the end of the day, we all know deep down what this is all about.

Hi Musti,

Yeah it is frustrating, I applied in Jan 2012 they requested more info for form 80 related to ASIO security checks in Jan 2013, haven't heard back ever since.

They never requested any other evidence etc but I have provided whole lots of them and even did medical and submitted police checks from both countries.

We are being treated worst than criminals in jail, at least they know the length of their sentence, our could be indefinite for all what I know.

Regards,
Kash
