    @Roni S This is a vague and obtuse question. If you review any of the past bunch of pages you'll see many questions like this asked and answered already. No one will be able to answer this accurately for you - each case is handled on it's own merits. Unfortunately, the best I can give you is to wait for the current waiting times. - I suggest you review the last (10-30) pages and see the answered provided for same "estimates". Expect the worst and hope for the best.

    @Andytomas I still think you taking a massive, unnecessary risk, especially as no CO has reviewed your application as yet. However, your choice - wish you the best of luck and that the CO's don't ask / suspect anything.

    @Fung It depends. There are email notifications that get sent to the person who created the application. So if you create and are maintaining your application, without an MA, then yes - you'll get an email should anything significant happen on your application. - However, as with most cases - if you are using an MA then they would get the email notifications. Meaning, you wouldn't know, unless a) Your MA tells you or b) You monitor your application and watch for updates. (This only applies for your visa, not the nomination, you won't get any updates on that - as it's company related.)

    @Mustung That would mean that you have "no intention of staying for the 2 years", after the visa is granted and would make the visa condition(s) not fulfilled. Meaning that, if - (a) the department found out somehow or - (b) your company informed the departement after the visa was granted, there would be a high chance of the visa being cancelled. This is a very real thing and does happen - i'd be very careful here if I were you. The company sponsors you on the premise that you will be staying with them for min 2 years after granting. - Failing a valid, real reason of leaving early - this could end terribly. All for a little extra money. Make sure it's worth it.

    @galisuman Unfortunately, getting upset with the system won't really solve anything here. There are many factors at play when someone gets their grant within 2-3 months and I agree, it's unfair - however, for the department - it makes sense. As far as I know, Deloitte are on a different "package" (I forget the correct term) as a sponsor (which, they pay A LOT of money for) and hence, get priority. That and them being a massive international business would play role in the quick turnaround times. This is not to argue, nor to say it's fair (I agree with you), however, it's something that you may need to understand before you start comparing. - You are not comparing apples with apples here. Deloitte and a few others (Atlassian) are exceptions (due to their size and money they spend on their immigrations). This can go round and round, however, if you get all the facts, I think (although still unfair), I think you would understand a little more.

    @Andytomas It would be quicker to rather just re-answer It's recommended to update your case by providing the updated information. They do advise you to do this when / if anything changes. - Their wording is "any change of circumstances". It shouldn't affect your case in any way, however, it will keep them up to date on all information and avoid any issues down the line with "not telling them".

    @Hisham Khan You have asked this 3 times now, with little / no response, unfortunately - I'm not able to assist as I also don't know what you would need here. Might I suggest that you contact your MA and ask them for some advice / guidance on this request?

    @Munkey1980 I completely understand - the wait is excruciating. Unfortunately, with it being in "Further Assessment", this could come through with an update soon (within the next 10 days) or could be massively delayed - there are some people waiting on "Further Assessment" for many months. Stay strong, expect the worst and hope for the best! It'll come through.

    @Andytomas I'm a little confused, you have already asked this exact same question, and I had also already answered it (a few times from memory). - Has something else changed that you are bringing it up again?

    @kstttt Nope, Grandfathering should make no difference to the time the application takes.

    @Mukki Although I haven't experienced this, I doubt the dept would come back with any additional requested tests. They worry more about serious issues (TB / disabilities etc.) I don't think being overweight with a high BMI would concern them too much.

    @Ramirez Unfortunately not, these are 2 separate offices and multiple officers.

    An announcement made today confirming the new cap changes, from 190 000 to 160 000. - https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/mar/20/coalitions-permanent-migration-cap-revealed-as-morrison-launches-population-policy Again, I wouldn't worry to much about this, as it's on par with what last years intake was anyway (162 000). Interesting about the new visa with 3 year residency before PR though, sounds like they'll try anything to reduce congestion in major cities.

    @HarryWong Personally, I think yes - these take longer. I've seen too many cases go from Initial Assessment to Further Assessment then take a while from there. Don't get me wrong, i've also seen cases go from Further Assessment to finalized within the month, however, this is more rare. As I always say, i'd expect the worst and hope for the best, so that you'll never be disappointed. Holding thumbs!
