I would keep hounding them. Call, email, even try complaining through the DIAC website or the High Commision site.


Hey aussiegirl,

Thank you so much for your reply. Yes, I have the Visa Fees Payment Receipt from VFS in New Delhi, the acknowledgement letter and the medical letter that has "HAP ID" on it. My medicals were cleared on August 4th, 2013. It's been so long, that's what is making me so impatient.
I really want to keep calling AHC until they confirm that my file has a Case Officer, but I'm scared that this might piss them off. Does AHC keep track of how many times we call them?

We have sent them five emails including my husband's emails. There has been no reply from them and the only responses we have received are the automated replies that say that they wll get back to us in 7 working days.

My husband emailed AHC on September 30th, 2013 for the first time and he has not received a reply of that mail till date.

AHC New Delhi have no specific processing method. Some applicants get CO in 2 days, some get them in 120 days and some applicants get their file queued in for final decision in 15 days since the date of application.

This is the worst experience of my life. Every time I have called AHC, I have been told a different story each time. Don't know when I will get to see my husband. Its been 5 months already. And if what the AHC operator told me was correct that my file doens't have a CO, I have a looooooooong wait ahead of me. The processing time for AHC New Delhi is 8-11 months. 80% applicants get their visas in about 7 months.

Worst part is that I come from a High Risk country, that raises red flags on my files without anything else being wrong.

Thanks again for your reply.

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hello everyone...
I just got papers from my Aussie husband. Anyways, I just wanted to ask should I put them in plastic bags or not, because I really want it to be arranged perfectly . I went trough almost everything that is written here and my head is going to explode xD.
No plastic bags and no staples? Right?
Thank you in advance!

When I put mine together I used no staples or plastic bags.

To sort it out I used a contents page at the front and split the documents into the sections as mentioned above with seporate contents page for each (split by yellow paper to show split). Rather than staples (if needed) I used paper clips and bull dog clips (i think I read they scan them in when arrive and like to avoid damaging the documents removing hundreds of staples.

I hope this helps.

Thank you very much. This helps a lot and splitting contents with yellow paper is the greatest idea I heard so far. Wish you all the luck in the world and thank you again
