Unhappy Do we need to knock the case office to give a push for the Spouse visa processing. ?

Hai all,

From the forum, I noticed that mostly all the guys who applied for the Spouse visa got the visa status by emailing or enquiring to case officer. And soon after that they got Visa approved.

Do I need to knock the case office to give a push for the Spouse visa processing. ?

My agent is not ready for it..They are asking me to wait untill CO responds. I don't know what they will do if CO didn't respond untill 8 months (Processing time told to me is 8-10 months) But from same processing office others got it by 4.5months...I applied in Dubai, UAE office. ( My application is already there for 5 months)

Kindly advice me what to do...( from your experience...)

Thanks..

Hi there,

I know you must be frustrated and anxious, but take your agent's advice. Agents deal with the DIAC regularly and know how they work, so pushing the issue may not only get your agent annoyed, but also annoy DIAC if your agent is constantly bothering them with follow-up requests.

Every application is an individual case, so if some people get it sooner than you, it doesn't mean your application should have taken the same amount of time. Maybe they gave clearer and more evidence, or maybe they don't have a very complicated situation. Don't compare yourself with other cases too much or it may frustrate you even more!

So, be patient and give it more time. If another month goes by with no news, then raise the issue with your CO once more.

I agree with aussiegirl. Do you know when you have been allocated a CO? In my case, once I was assigned a CO, only took a month to assess my case and i got granted yesterday. So just be patient, I waited for 7.5 months.

Visa processing can have many variables and that can include what country a person is from, the extent of security checking and that alone being a huge delaying factor for many at the moment.
There are regularly posts about agents overseas not being as up to the task as they should be but if you have an agent nominated as your authorised contact, the first thing you need to do before considering any attempt yourself to make contact is de-authorising the agent and having you for direct contact - see Form 956A on the immi site.

Generally speaking though, attempting to contact COs is not going to be so helpful and I've given other thoughts @ http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...her-email.html

Angelamen had a most unusual case and what has happened with that bears little relevance to most cases.
