190 Visa waiting 8 months since lodgement

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, I know it's hard not to feel despondent, but has anyone waited longer than 8 months for their 190 visa? Lodged 4 Sept 2018, so on Saturday 4 May it will be 8 months exactly since lodging.  Everything is in - we did not front load, Had CO contact  in Dec for Police and Medicals and a second contact in Feb for further info, so everything is submitted including Form 80 at the lodgement time. I know there is no way of predicting anything. 

I was just wondering how common it is to be waiting longer than 8 months ( DIBP website said 9-11 months for a while , now changed back to 8-10 months).

Im glad in a way I have a MA - it would do my head in if I could log into my own immiaccount every day like some people have eluded to.

Hi Wizard

Currently 1wk into my wait so cant really comment on much but as you say it does say 8 - 10months processing times.

You've had CO contact so you know someone is looking at it, maybe the extra evidence has delayed you a little bit. Also everything slows this time of year so that probably isn't helping.

Just try and relax and your time will come soon.

We are still waiting for a grant and we are past the 10 months. Really starting to lose all hope. 😩

Processing times are very erratic across the range of visa subclasses at the moment.

There are a number of factors affecting this, including the end of the Migration Program Year in June and an imminent election and possible change of Government.

Usually near the end of the migration program year, processing becomes unpredictable as some categories have already reached their ceiling, while others scramble to finalise easy cases to get the numbers in.

Don't lose hope, the finish line is in sight.

Hi @Raul Senise,

thanks for your response, we are still waiting.

As an agent would you be contacting the case officer if the processing time goes out with the published times? We will be 11 months at the end of the week.

Thanks

The processing time for  subclass 190 visa does take a longer time. Though it depends upon number of factors and is really unpredictable, but the it normally takes about 12 months or so to do so.

Hi - I have now just reached 279 days since lodgement (almost 10 months) - and the goalposts have moved again it is now saying 11 and 14 months processing. I was hoping it would have been processed before their new batch. Anyway, keep patient as you say and my time will come soon...Thanks for the reassurance. 🙂

Hi Emma I was wondering the same - when you get to the ''end'' of the processing times - what happens then - do you have an opportunity to contact the DIBP? It was 8-10 months up until recently and my MA said you cant do anything until the 10 months, and suddenly in the last few weeks it has changed to 11-14 months! That will mean at 14 months both the police  checks and medicals will have expired.  What do you have to do then?

Good luck with your waiting too.  My 190 is for Victoria, 251111.

Hi Sorry I have not been on here for a while - I know tell me about it ---- it was 8-10 months then now it says 11-14 months processing time. if its 14 months then our police checks and medicals will expire - i have no idea what will happen then if thats the case.  Oh dear do you have to do them again even though you had no control over it?

Forever hopeful. 

All the best

Hi @WizardofOz2018,

Yes we are still waiting too, now on day 346 😭, I’m pretty sure our medicals and police checks have ran out now although I’m not entirely sure of the dates.

We front loaded all our docs including medicals so we weren’t asked for them so technically our fault they’ve ran out. At the time we were applying everything was moving really quickly eoi, nomination etc so our agent had suggested we front load everything, regretting that decision now!

 I suppose we just have to wait again for contact from a co to ask for them again, our agent had said with the medicals you can do a sort of refresher so it doesn’t cost as much so that’s not too bad I suppose as we were over £1000 for medicals as we are a family of 5. 

I’m trying to stay positive now and look at as if the co knew our medicals etc were expiring and didn’t want to give us a grant with such short entry date so has waited until they expire so we have a full year to make first entry now, maybe that’s just wishful thinking though 🤣

Fingers crosses for both of us, hopefully hear back soon xx

It usually takes lesser time then 12 months for Subclass 190 visa. It usually takes about 8 to 10 months, approximately. Though as said it depend on various factors, but yes, if everything goes in a glossy way then it would take a lesser time. 

All the best!!

Thank you @Sheral Singh I know we must be in the system somewhere... maybe just maybe one of these fine days. Although the DIBP processing changed recently to 9 to 13 months I think.

Most of the time it is an approximate time. All of the things come down the type of visa you have filed and whether you have filed the right sort if visa or not.

Hi, gurinder, 

We are still waiting, it’s now been 13 months 😭, just trying not to think about it anymore. I’ve got a feeling it’s just not going to happen. Hopefully you won’t be waiting as long as us.

Our agent contacted them on the 17th June to find out what what taking so long as we haven’t heard anything since the 6th of March. Still no reply.

We will be 13 months tomorrow, every time we hit the processing time it’s increased further!
