187 Visa Processing Time

Recommended Posts

2 hours ago, RD60 said:

 

Hi Guys

 

I applied in April 2017 and my file is finally being processed. Last month, my MA lodged a complaint through the immi website enquiring about my application and we received a response from them in the next few days to say they are currently processing the application. 

It is  a compliant form that you have to fill on the website not an email. I would suggest to use this way of contacting the dept only if you are outside of the normal processing time. On another note, please make sure you get copies of visa lodgement etc as a proof from your MA, I have heard terrible horror stories about some MAs who have taken the money and lied to clients that the applications were lodged but nothing was actually lodged. I don’t mean to scare you but better be safe than sorry.

I hope your applications are processed soon and we all get our approvals soon. 

sending best wishes to all. 

 

Can you post complain links.please

Hi M the oldest one on this frm I don’t know when god listen us. So upset my total life depend on it 

I don’t know what to do with this even my MA is so hopeless same reply always “nothing so far “

I’m wondering if we(2016 cases) can together write something to the immigration? It’s unreasonable to delay without any news. By the way, may I know your occupation and which state you are?

Hi geace how long have u been waiting. I don’t know if it’s complicated in my case as I m working for non profit organisation and my MA says there is no any issues with company. I just don’t know why it is happening with me. 

My MA is going to complaint again in formal. Hope it works this time as we complaint even before but it didn’t work at all and my MA called them yesterday and they said they are waiting for case officer i don’t know why they making excuses. 

Does your agent charge you extra for the complain? By the way what your occupation and which state you are?

Hi, 

did your agent ask you to pay extra for the complain letter? I asked my agent to complain, he said I need to pay 1000+ gst. I think it’s a part of my application and I already paid 7800 dollars when I change to this lawyer and also it’s unreasonable for me to pay that.

$7800 agent fees for single Rsms application is bit expensive as far as I know most of them charge between $4000-$5500. After charge you like this much of money ($7800) and still asking $1100 to fill complaint form is absolutely ridiculous. What a rip off

Hi Geace, this fee is completely unethical please do not pay it. I can understand if you need to appeal against the decision then there is an application fee and a professional fee but there is no such fee as a complaint fee. I'm sure they will give you a receipt and are covered by their business practices but you should report this agent through mara. If you don't want to do it please send me their details and I will report them. Please don't waste any more money on complaining, they will just write a formal mail/email asking what is the status of the applicant that's all, they will not fight for U. If you want to complain Do it yourself!!!

I believe this is the link guys. Just follow the prompts. Please remember this not the department’s preferred way of enquiry so if your application is within 24 month processing time, I would suggest refraining from using this. 

 

Good luck!

I emailed immigration on 1st of May about processing time has surpassed ( I was waiting as a cook for 27 months) and if I could get any attention on my file. Not sure if that was a coincidence or they actually looked at my file and refused my nomination the very same day. After waiting for 27 months and I was working full time there for nearly 2.5 years. Giving a ridiculous reason that business can’t afford to pay me for next 2 years.Well I had uploaded all those supporting documents such as payslips, group certificates etc. Maybe it was my bad luck but yeah they have put me 3 years back in my life again. Now I have to wait for another 6-7 months to finish my 3 years exp. to be eligible for new visa options. I suggest you guys to wait for your file to open and let your MARA agent lodge any complaint to immi. However, everyone’s case is different at the same time. Hope you all get your visas soon. Good luck 😊

Can anyone please advise how long they have been stuck on 'Further Assessment' status, upon submitting all requested documentation?

My nomination has been approved, and just waiting for them to make a decision.

any feedback would be useful.

Jonjo the longest I've seen anyone wait on further assessment is 8 months on this forum but I guess each one's case is different and they might of kept asking for more evidence and documents that's what took so long.... hopefully you get some good news soon.
