Hi everyone. I am just wondering if someone is waiting 864 visa here. I have applied for my mother in March 2017, the processing times on the official website were 15 months. It is been 20 months since and nothing is happening. I send empty emails to PVC from time to time and monitor how PVS process contributory visa applicants. Right now they are processing 864 visa applicants who applied before 27/10/2016 and the queue didn't move for the last 8 months. Actually for the last financial year they processed only 1.5 months worth of 864/884 applications (applied between 08/09/2016-27/10/2016). Meanwhile approx 6 months worth of 173/143 visa applicants were processed in the same timeframe (applied between 25/11/2014-25/05/2015) So definitely something is going on and 15 months for 864 was just misleading information when we applied. My understanding is that all contributory visa subclasses applicants should be treated equally while we all are subject to the same capping and queueing. Why 864 is delayed I have no idea. Any suggestions? PS I have attached the picture of my requests to PVC.
