    Request from Adelaide GSM Team 13

    Hi, I am from Bangladesh. After four months have passed, we sent an e-mail to the address: gsm.adelaide@immi.gov.au and two days later they sent us a template reply, saying that processing of some visa applications can take considerable time because they need to meet certain health, character and national security checks undertaken by external agencies. So from this, we understood that ours has been sent for security checks. Also, judging from the timelines of other Bangladeshi applicants who share their experiences in this and other forums, this is the most probable explanation for such long processing delay. I assume it will take another year for me until I can hope to receive a grant. Thanks.

    Hi, Thanks for sharing your experience. My case is undergoing security checks. It has been 6 months already and probably still a long way to go. Hope things go well for you.

    Hi Farah, My situation is same as yours. After queries from team 13 twice, at last we got a case officer in August ( they didn't contact. We called DIBP and the operator told so). Still no grant after 4 and a half months. I am guessing it has been forwarded to external security check, otherwise there is no reason for delay. Please keep updated if you hear anything more. Cheers.

    We had already uploaded form 80 following the link provided in immiaccount. But team 13 again asked for form 80, form 1221 and CV. One month after providing all these, they came back with more queries.

    Hi, I think now we all BD applicants are first given to team 13 and there is significant delay in our case officer allocations. My latest update is this: we responded to team 13's requests in mid June. now in mid July (yesterday), they again made some queries about employment and education history. We will provide them the answers shortly and see what happens. Still no case officer :-( such a painful situation. Piece of advice to all BD applicants, please collect exact street addresses (it context of BD it will mean house no, road no, area/thana, district, postcode, everything) of all your past residences and educational institutes as soon as you lodge your application. Do not leave out any gap or discrepancy in information. I know we do not remember all details and in BD they are not well documented as well. But it is very important to get it right. Otherwise they will keep bugging you and will take months to progress. Hope we all get our grants as soon as possible. Cheers.

    When we lodged our application (14th April), their website said that case officer for 189 visas are allocated within 10 weeks of lodgement. But from May they are only stating dates and its progressing 3 days a month (Now 3rd March). By this way, we can never question them because the dates will take ages to reach to April at this pace. Whereas, in this forum we are seeing May applicants got their grant and June applicants got case officers and are close to their grants. I don't understand their policy. Does it all have to do with being from high risk country?

    We also did not hear anything after submitting documents to team 13. Total silence. Not even any case officer. The wait is really painful and full of tensions :cry:

    Hi Farah, Yes. We are from Bangladesh. What about your country? I am also afraid about security check. The DIBP told us the same thing like you. Things are similar for us. Hope we do not get stuck into security check

    Hi all, Yesterday we called to DIBP but they could not tell any further information. Have any of you heard anything after communicating with adelaide gsm team 13? The DIBP person could not even tell if we have a case officer even after 2.5 months. Please keep us updated. Good luck to everyone.

    Request from Adelaide GSM Team 13

    Hi everybody, I decided to open a thread for those who have received a request from Adelaide GSM Team 13 for additional documents (their mail says that they are not CO and will not assess visa application (CO may or may not have been allocated) but they are collecting important client particulars. We lodged our 189 application on 14th April 2014. Till now no contact from CO just received the communication from team 13 and they requested form 80, form 1221 and CV. Some people say they might be doing security check. This makes me anxious. Can others please come forward if you have had any such request from team 13? Does it really mean security check? How long after such contact can a person expect grant? Please share your experiences.

    Hi Farah, I guess we are on the same boat. As I mentioned gsm team 13 is asking for the information (form 80, 1221 and CV) after 2 months and they said they are not CO, only collects required information. No idea about the CO assigned or not. I do not know contact numbers and even if I did, I hesitate to contact them since I do not know what the outcome will be. We will just send the required forms and wait for their response. I will keep you guys updated and please also give update if you hear anything more/receive grant. Then we will have idea about how long after contact from team 13 one usually gets the grant. I pray for all of us to receive their grants as quickly as possible. Cheers.

    Yes, we both are academic. PhD students in an University in Australia. They wanted to know about our researches, thesis and papers.

    They contacted us yesterday asking for form 80, form 1221 and CV/resume of both applicants. We are claiming partner points as well. They also say that they are not CO, but collecting the information (adelaide GSM 13). Now have to supply all these again. Bit confused because did not hear about form 1221 that often. Hope everything is fine.

    We have also lodged on April 14th, 2014 (my husband primary applicant). All documents uploaded including medical, PCC and form 80 (link appeared) within April. Still no communication or CO. We have applied for 189 visa in Electronics Engineer (ANZSCO code 233411) category onshore. It has already been two months and no contact leaves us very anxious. Can you please tell what your occupation code is? I can see that you are onshore. Many people form April got their 189 grant already, both onshore and offshore. That makes me wonder if it has anything to do with certain occupations. Thanks and best of luck.
