My 176(SS) Visa
Documents checklist showing all "Met
" and Health requirements finalized on 01/04/2011.
Then I asked my CO
"How long it will take to complete my Visa process?"
"We are awaiting outstanding checks on your application. These checks may take up to 12 months
from initiation to be fully completed so we are unable to give you a specific date of when this will be completed.
The Australian Government requires all persons entering Australia to hold
valid visas. As part of visa processing, various checks must be undertaken
prior to visa grant.
We will be in contact with you should we require any further information
and you are asked not to undertake health and character checks until
requested to do so."
Can you please give me an idea how long it may take to get the Grant letter?
...I though 176(SS) takes less time than 175..
