It is a shame, but gives me hope that there is just a general delay - and not a problem with my individual application.

 It's been two months since our application lodged. Officer requested more information about a month ago and the information provided in 2 days following their request. This was on 18 Feb 2020. Application status is Further Assessment since then.

The stress created by this unknown waiting period is very destructive. Unfortunately there is nothing to do but waiting.

Hi Nick,

We had been asked to provide more information regarding our de-facto relationship. There was a checklist for what they are expecting from us. This checklist was basically categorized on 4 different aspects of a relationship such as financial and social etc.

Our medicals were already done by 14 Feb 2020. Therefore we didn't receive a request for it. If I remember correct, we have had this initial assessment status until we uploaded new documents for S56. After uploading them, it changed to Further Assessment status. I believe your status will become Further Assessment once BUPA sent your medical report to the department.

Very unexpectedly they asked for the new police clearance (for a country where I stayed for more than 12 months but) which I submitted earlier with my VISA application. However, responded but again its almost a month, no voice from them.

****Any body having any idea on why this document is Re-requested with the 3rd S56 request. Isn't that, they should have asked me with their 1st S-56 document request if their any problem?? if not with the 2nd S-56 document request?

It happens sometimes, not sure if they can't see the document or simply overlook it.  Best is to politely reply that you'd provided the document earlier but in case it's not visible in their system you are sending/uploading a fresh copy.

Do you guys think that corona virus outbreak has any effect on 186 applications? We haven't heard even a single grant since last week. I am trying to make myself believe it doesn't have anything to do with visa processing. At least not any effect on the permanent residency applications.

I am hoping that the only effect is that staff at the DIBP will be more likely to take sick leave and/or work from home, or be isolated after an overseas trip - so presumably that would slow things down slightly.

Hopefully there is no wider effect, eg. staff taken from that particular department to work on assisting with emergency immigration measures as a result of COVID-19. I suppose that kind of thing is possible though.

New wait times for the February month will be out soon, so that should give us some indication. So nervous! 🤞

Hi All, I received the S56 request on 4th March for further medical tests and completed the test on 11th March and after that, the portal is automatically updated to reflect the last update date as 11th March. 

I was going through my profile and noticed the below button, which I don't think it was there earlier before S56 request. Even the medical test results were completed, the status is still "initial assessment". Please let me know if I need to contact my MA to confirm.
