Strange Mail from Case Officer...Need Help

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have applied for GSM 175 category on 25/09/2009 as an Electronics Engineer.

 

I have front loaded my health check and it was finalized on 27/10/2009.so it is almost expired as per the validity of 1 year.

 

Today I mailed my case office for redo of my health check and in it's response I got reply which I have pasted below.

 

Dear Client,

 

Thank you for your email in relation to your visa application under

Australia's General Skilled Migration program.

 

At present your application is undergoing routine processing.

Unfortunately, ensuring all the legal requirements are met in relation to

an application can take some time.

 

Please note that in an attempt to strengthen the integrity of the General

Skilled Migration (GSM) visa categories, the department is increasing the

level of verification of documents received from applicants for GSM visas.

 

As a result of this increased verification there may be some delays in

finalising applications.

 

We appreciate your patience in this matter.

 

You should not undertake to re-do any expired clearances until you are

requested to do so by a case officer.

 

Regards

 

Case Officer - Team 4

General Skilled Migration - Adelaide

Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC)

 

DIAC has verified my job on 15/05/2010 and I have submitted all mandatory documents to process my application.

 

Please share your experience or opinion that why there are taking so long to finalize my application..Is there any chance for rejection of my application?????:unsure:

 

Regards,

Tejas

It looks like a standard letter to me. Sometimes those security checks can take ages.

Internal and/or external checks do appear to take quite a long time for some countries.

For external checks DIAC is reliant with the other country coming back to them with the information they require.

 

We have seen some people on here wait a long time for these checks to come through. It makes sense that your CO does not ask you to redo Meds /PCCs until they have the checks back.

 

Maybe search this forum for "external checks" to see what others have found out.

If you state which country you are from maybe others may advise on their experience.

 

Hope that helps a bit?

I think, you shouldn't panic. Indeed, depending on your country, these checks might take a couple of months to complete; up to 12 months, in fact. You can't help it but wait :(
