HELP Family sponsored visa (subclass 600)

Hi everyone!

My sister who's already an Australian Citizen lodged my application last June 2014. After 2 weeks from lodging, she got an email from CO that my application is a valid application. I am about to stay for 3 months ( sept.1-dec.1,2014). Until now there's no further email from my CO. My sister already emailed my CO about the status of my application but there's no reply until now (she just got the auto reply email).

Here are my questions:
1. How long does the subclass 600 visa be given? After lodging.
2. Given than I got a reply that my application is a valid application, does that mean my visa application won't be denied?

Thanks
Cath

Hi Cathy
What country did you lodge your application in?

Hi Cathy I should have asked what country you were from as well as that will have a bearing on the processing time.

Ok Cathy
That seems a rather long time waiting for an answer. We have sponsored a number of my wife's brothers and sisters on tourist visas at various times and have always had an approval with in 2 to 3 weeks.Be aware that sometimes they will ask for a security deposit. Usually it is if you are a young single female, but once we had to pay $15000 each for my wife's brother and his wife . They charged is $5000 for their infant daughter.
If your sister made the application I would be getting her to make enquires as to the delay

Thanks for your reply. The money for bond is always ready, we are just waiting for the CO's go signal. As of now, there's no new email from the CO. The only email we received from the CO is just the email about the validity of my application. My sister also asked about the status of my application few weeks ago, until now there's no reply.

Thanks
Cathy

Is it true that there's a long que for visa applications lately? I read it from one commentor in this website.

Thanks

Hi Cathy
The delay in visas is for other types of visas not 600.
I would get your sister to check her emails etc incase she overlooked a reply. If no answer contact them again.
