Does anyone know of the visa processing time frame these days? Last chart i saw posted said they were onto cases from end of june, which is PAST my date but i still havent heard from a CO or anything and neither has my employer.

 

I am going on 7 months now and dont have any information about my case other than that parramatta office didnt want to deal with it and sent it to perth office. I dont know if it was put on top or bottom of the pile when that happend.

Happy New Year everyone!! I've had a nice relaxing holiday, just got back from a week in Port Douglas. I took my phone to check my email in the hopes I might hear something but I didn't. My employer nomination was approved as I mentioned, and now just waiting on final approval. My CO went on leave and doesn't come back til next Monday so I guess I shouldn't expect anything until she comes back now. I'm hoping by end of Jan I'm a PR - but who knows??

 

Congrats to those who did get a positive outcome during the holidays!!

Ugh how annoying!! The waiting is horrible. I got a CO and then she went on leave for a month, I was gutted - it was like they dangled the carrot in front of my face and then snatched it away lol. I just keep trying to remember it'll all be worth it the second I get approved.

Hello Lenak29, my application was sent to Perth office too for whatever reason, it seems they can do that although we applied in Sydney. As for my application, CO has contacted my MA and has requested for some additional documents for my nomination , which is all submitted now. She/he on leave until next week so waiting now just waiting for her/him to get back to work and decide.

Also before my MA heard from CO, I had sent an email to nsw.pse@immi.gov.au address requesting for an update, which was eventually replied by one of the admin persons with my CO name and contact details which was different to CO who eventually is handling my case but my MA informed that one could have different COs for nomination and visa approval....whatever it is, its worth writing on above email address requesting an update I think.

Hope you hear from CO soon.

Well now my MA finally recieved this from my CO.... Bit weird but atleast some movement.... CO email below here but i dnt know wat xactly he wants to tell us.

 

 

 

Thank you for the inquiries into the progress of your clients nomination and visa application regarding $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ As I previously advised, various departmental processing and checks may be undertaken prior to the nomination and visa decision.

 

 

 

Although the application was lodged by you as ‘Decision Ready’ we must ensure that all applications meet the mandatory requirements for approval and this is taking longer than service standards. I will be continuing to work on your clients application and I will be sending you a separate email concerning some additional information I require the from nominator – $$$$$$

Really depressed today and needed a bit of comfort if anyone can help. I got employer nomination on 30 Nov, CO allocated same day, she went on leave and returns on 14 Jan, so I KNOW my PR will be approved any day now but my workplace is truly unbearable for me. We have a new Manager and he is the nastiest piece of work I think I've ever met. He's rude, condescending, and just plain treats everyone like children. Redundancies are being made in the company, thankfully we've only had one in my office but I am honestly dying to get my PR and have the freedom to just be stress free and happy. I can barely stand to get up in the mornings knowing I have to go to that horrible place.

 

The stress pushed me over the edge today and I had a huge crying fit to my fiancee, I feel terrible but it's just too much at the moment. Has anyone else waiting for their PR had the extra experience of a declining work environment as well? It's honestly one of the most isolating, horrible feelings....

 

Sorry for venting but I am in a hole today :(
