If a form 80 is required, it's not checked by DIAC. This form goes to ASIO for a full background security check i.e. they want to make sure you are not a threat to Australia in the form terrorist links or sympathies etc.

That's not to say they think you are a threat just because they ask for the form 80. But, unfortunatley if you come from an area of the world involved in all of the political and religious unrest going on, then there is a strong possibility you would be asked for one.

There is no way of knowing that. This is not published and will also be taken as a case by case basis... unfortunatly you just have to sit tight... there is apparantly a backlog at ASIO and cases can vary between a few months and quite a long time (how sure i dont know)

My Fiance is from a high risk country and so we are all in the same boat.

What exactly are you referring too? There are a lot of meanings from this one acronym, so I can't give you a clearer answer until you clarify things more.

As Mark and I have said, ASIO is handling it and they are dealing with a backlog of checks.

Being from Bangladesh, it might take quite a long time, maybe 9 months, possibly a year or more, so prepare for a lenghty wait. That way, if you have it mind it will take a long time, you won't be continually worried about it.

Hi i'm currently in the same state. CO asked for form80 and they said they cant say how long it might take to do the Character and National security check. Any idea how long it is taking these days? Btw im living in Singapore for the last 5 years, shouldn't that be a positive point!

There's no such thing as a progress report. They'll contact you to acknowledge receipt of your application, and if they need something, or when the visa is granted. Otherwise you won't hear a word. If your application is sound, it will be granted in due time. Don't try to speed things up, because every single application is high-priority to the applicant. There's nothing you can do to make yours stand out.
