Time needed for 489 Case Officer Assignment and Visa decision???

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I applied for 489 family sponsred (Queensland's regional area) visa on 21 Jan and i am still to get a CO. As per DIAC it should take maximum of 10 weeks for priority4 class. If anybody has been granted CO or visa in between please share your thoughs and processings.

 

Any pointers are really appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance,

Punj

Hi Pun23,

 

Any updates?

 

I got the invitation in mid-March....

Also, please let me know when the health Check-ups are done? before or after the CO is assigned?

 

 

Thanks

Hi Nishit,

 

its still a waiting game for me ... It's been 11 weeks now. I think family sponsored are taking longer time than state sponsored ones.

You can go for medical and police clearance before case officer assigned to you if your lofgeny date is within one month.

 

Its mentioned on the bottom of below page:

Have you also applied for family sponsored? Which one is yours family of state sponsored and got which state?
