Hi All,

My Case officer is an A*****e. He first asked for the PCC and Medical and then backed out and said I have not asked for these yet. However i sent me his mail back highlighting the wordings. Do you think it will effect my case?

Regards,

IZA

Why don't you reply "quoting" e-mail that where he requested...Anyways front loading PCC and meds is not at all an issue....Better be calm and let him ask the needful. "No", it won't make any impact on your visa application but would suggest you to be a bit courteous with him at this stage...He should be your "God" :wink: as he beholds your future in OZ.

regards

Big Bob

Hi,

I lodged my application to DIAC on 3rd of March 2011 for 176 state sponsorship visa. Can anybody have idea what are processing times now a days required for this visa? As i did not hear anything from case officer except documents and payment receipt.

 

DIAC website shows 176 is priority 3 and has low & high risk durations

 

Can anybody tell if at High risk ( my country NOT on ETA) it takes 24 months?????

Link to allocation dates, I would have thought that you would have received a CO by now? HR counrties take longer as there is lots of external checks, some HR can take alot longer than others.

Hi Faisal,

Welcome to the thread...HR countries take more time and there is a status called "internal checks" which might take more than an year or so for countries like Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan,Pakistan,Sudan etc. Security checks are the main reason behind this " internal checking" thing.

Hi All,

 

May be someone of you who has got the visa can answer my query..... My CO asked for Form 80, form 1221 and form 47A for my dependants to be sent to him via email. In the same letter he also used these wordings.

"You must send the requested documents (such as medicals and police clearance) with 28 days of this letter"

I sent him the forms and written in the mail that medical and PCC shall be provided before 28 days time period. He replied that he has not asked for medical and PCC yet. Please advice what to do.

He specifically writes in his mail that medical and PCC has a validity period of 12 months so if your checking took more than 12 months then you might need to undergo medical again.

I replied to him very humbly that i will not undergo the medical and PCC until he asks me for them. What to do now.

 

Regards,

IZA

I dont know if this helps, but we were asked for medical and PCC today and the attachments on the email were regarding all the information where to get them done and also a copy of the Aus Clearance application form.

 

I think its a template letter that they use, but agree its a bit confusing.
