hi all

im very sorry , when i made copy and paste from DIAC website , the format and tables are not fitted well in the page

so please refer to this link to read all the subject

Client Service Charter

to summarize that :

for Visa types ( offshore visas)
119
121
175
176
475
495
496

applications which lodged BEFORE 1 july 2010 ... will be finalized before 31-12-2011

and for applications which lodged on or after 1 july 2010 ... will have the following time-line

priority group 1 - will have priority as per ENS / RSMS Ruls ( i think its the fastest types )
priority group 2 - will be finalized in 12 months from date of lodgement.
priority group 3 - will be finalized in 18-24 months from date of lodgement.
priority group 2 - will be finalized after application in priority 1,2,3 finalized !!

i think its very clear
