  1. Hi, I have applied for 175 Visa in September 2010 and Case Officer was allocated recently and requested medical, PCC, Form 80. My online application shows MET. When contacted recently, Case Officer replied that my application is "Undergoing Routine Processing". I have read from this forum that Pakistani applicants with "Routine Processing" take about a year or more for checks. I wonder what is the time taken for Indian applicants??? Is anyone from India for 175/176 with "Routine Processing" tag. What are all included in Routine Processing?:unsure:

    Routine Checks for Middle East

    Is there anybody who has waiting such a long time after allocation of Case Officer? I dont know why, it takes more than normal for middle east countries.
  3. Hi, Can anyone help me with some idea about what routine checks on an application refers to? Coz, I got a reply from my CO that my application will be finalized within 4(anticipated) months after all other routine checks are completed! Does anyone have any idea? My meds are finalized, jobs are inquired ... don't know what's pending! Is it really gonna happen within 4 months? "Gill, your opinion is welcomed here"! Thanks, Rubab
  4. We've applied for a 175 visa (I am the main applicant) and all meds etc were finalised on 18/03/10. It seems to me our application has been fairly straightforward however we have come to a standstill. Our agent has chased it up twice but has told me that diac say they are completing 'routine checks' and it could be another 2 months. What are these routine checks and why does it take so long?? Are we being fobbed off?? I'm getting really frustrated. Diane
  5. Hi all, One assistant of the CO have replied me about that status of my application that, it is now under some routine process and may take some time when I inquired about it over email. My question is, if there is any discripency found in anywhere in my application or documents(though no such thing is in my knowledge), how soon they asks for clarification? I wonder if my application is stuck at any point or not. My application status remained same for quite a while and other applicants around me with similar timeline as me have already got their visa granted.:confused: Thanks - Rubab

    Loooooooong ROutine Checks

    Hi all Like others, I am also v frustrated and really wana :cry: as can't see any way out. I have applied last year aug (CSL-HR) and my CO was assigned in April 2009. I am under routine checks since then. its now 6 months(for routine checks) and my status is still the same (all met since April). I saw a lot of people getting visas who applied this year, not jealous of them at all, but want some decision on my case also. I have an agent but he also has the same answer that they don't know how long these routine checks will take. At least they should give us some time frame (esp for ppl in final stage) so that we can plan things out according to that. Many things are pending on the decision..............
  7. I had a CO on 8/4/09 , but after waiting for ages without a single feedback since I last sent the extra documents he requested , I decided to send a Post-lodgment enquiry about the status of my application and guess what ???? A very routine reply which honestly I don't understand !!!! Here is a part of the reply which I would be grateful if any one has a clue about : "The status of this visa application has not changed since our last reply. Please be advised your visa application is still undergoing routine processing. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship recognises that the time taken to process your application may be causing concern. As we advised previously, the case officer is still awaiting the completion of the various checks being undertaken on your application. This often includes requirements for mandatory health, character and national security and other checks that are undertaken by other agencies and can take some time. " What am I supposed to understand from this ????? and what is exactly meant by MANDATORY HEALTH , CHARACTER AND NATIONAL SECURITY CHECKS ??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't understand !!! Some body help .. I am sick of this waiting game . Every single documents and information regarding my application is genuine , so why all these kind of investigations and what does it mean ?????? Kind regards .
