I thought the hardest time is when you just applied and you see the endless wait in front of you. So it's definitely not. The end is the hardest! Especially if you are falling to the unlucky 25%.
It is a bit unfortunate but I think your visa is on way, we are on our 7th month since we applied and 6th month since we last got some thing to do (the interview). I had no idea it was going to take that long. With the unlucky 25% who over flow the 9 month was it based before July 2013 or now? As it seems to me everyone to be unlucky with migration these days

Thanks waliku! Not long to go for you too!

My unlucky rate was based on the recent Cairo average which is 9.5 months (excluding the most unfortunate guys with longer security checks like Yemen or Syria) and on what they told us when we submitted the application.

Here is why it's 25%:
We aim to process 75 per cent of Family Stream visa applications within timeframes detailed below. It should be noted that individual processing times will vary depending on a range of factors.

Cairo go over 9 months on majority of visa's these days .... we must be all unlucky. But saying that DIBP say 12 months for high risk countries so we still get them before 12 months . I think we were 9 months 2 weeks and 5 days from memory.

On the positive note (because really we need positive) the 820 is super fast

Ok make sure they fix it for you. It doesn't look like you will have any problem.

Sydney,

That is good to know. But that is DIBP saying this, it will be interesting to see if a third body conducts independent assessment to verify this claim. The current services provided to customers is shocking...I mean you pay 3k-4k for the partner visa and then you get told "we will get to it when we get to it...wait 9-12 month". I used to work for DIAC as a contractor few years back and if you delay a project, it was kind of the end of the world for them.

Mish

Thanks, I think there should be some reforms or changes to the delays introduced. hopefully it is temporarily and in future it will be quicker. Yes DIBP need to detect fraudulent applicants for the purpose of the public interest and that can take some time.
