No case officer appointment even after a month

Im an indian , married to an aus PR ...I had applied for my Australian spouse visa completed with Medicals exactly a month back ... But sadly there has been no response or any mail regarding the appointment of case officer .. Is there any way to intimate the embassy regarding this... Email or something... Not even sure if my forms have reached ,..as the embassy is in a different city in India far away from mine..

If you gave an email as a means of contact, there'll normally be an initial email sent out to confirm your application has been registered in the system.Getting a CO can take several months though some people have reported much shorter timeframes but they are something of an exception.

Thanks wanderer ..
But in my case ... Since the embassy is in a different city far from mine .. My application had to move thru the vfs.. And in their site .. My passport number says that my application is in the embassy under processing state for almost a month ..

That just means it was forwarded on and processing will include registration of the application in the system.
Normal processing times are about 5-6 months.

It is just likely a typo and being an email to you is not part of your application.

Hi,

I believe this is the last step in the process and that you should hear from them soon. As for when you'll get it back, it totally depends on the amount of other cases they are working on.

I know it's frustrating, but please be patient. Don't send your CO constant e-mails or call them repeatedly as this will probably annoy them. Just relax and concentrate on arranging things for the move to Australia

From what I've read of what seems to be happening in India, an applicants passport is asked for rather than a certified copy of an ID page and that could just be an anti fraud action and if so then the visa will still have normal processing to occur.

There have been quite a few posts on a thread where Indians have been posting relatively short total processing times and that may sound alarm bells for Immi or should if it is a regular occurence as against many other indications of processing times elsewhere for anywhere from 6 - 12 months.
