I know of a couple of people who have gotten family sponsored visitor visas lately and they took less than a week to get them.

Sorry but you just have to wait. Maybe the visas is faster when it is a spouse compared to a sibling.

Hi there Mish!

My sister called yesterday and she was told that my application is still on process. I'm just a bit concern because my travel date i put on my application is from sept.1 to dec.1,2014 and thats few days from now.

Thanks

Unfortunately all you can do is wait. Maybe they are still looking into it and there is something of concern.

For now, all i have to do is to wait for the CO's email. =)


I have a question. If the CO will ask for bond, are we gonna transact it online or my sister will go to the bank?


Thanks
Cathy

Sorry I don't know. I have never done a family sponsored visa. Maybe someone else like aussiesteve can answer that one.

I would get your sister to check her emails etc incase she overlooked a reply. If no answer contact them again.
Hi again aussiesteve!

Can i ask what will be the process for giving the bond? Do we have to go to the bank and deposit or we will just transact in thru online banking? Thanks a lot.

Cathy

Hi Cathy
They will send your sister a letter with the banking details and the reference number. She will need to go to the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and pay the money and they will give her a receipt.
I then contacted the department and confirmed that I had paid and the visa was issued.
I don't know about online payment as it was such a large amount it was not feasible for me
