We have to understand that Immigration is a well established process and all supporting documents might be going to various checks for the documents which we have provided. While we see just received message in our application, I am sure work is always going on in the background. When CO feels something is missing or needing more supporting documents, they ask us to furnish more/missing documents. Once all checks are done application is finalized. This is why 7 to 8 months is maximum timeline.
Yeah.

Hello Friends ,

I would need an advise on proceeding further . It has been 274 days since we have lodged the application and we have got a immi commencement mail on August 15th . We have been waiting till then and there is no update . We have tried calling the DHA multiple times and we have got a standard reply . Even though now the processing times are 7 to 8 months , they are not agreeing to drop a note to CO . we have crossed 9 months now . will any feedback / Complaints in the DHA online forum help ? Or how should i proceed . Any help or information would be much appreciated . Thanks in advance

Hi Goki, I would call again and politely request that they pass a message on to your CO as it has now passed the estimated processing time. I know quite a few with Immi Commencement in September got grants in December but each is individual so no way of knowing. Hopefully you’re visa is just around the corner! We also got immi commence and waiting, it’s frustrating having no idea when it may come especially reading wait times like yours!

Just trying to understand. You have dependants? And for how many companies your claimed points? Also partner points?

It’s irrelevant whether you claimed alone or with dependants it’s purely random! There are those who get a direct grant, then those who get CO contact due to missing information or medicals etc needing done typically adding 3-6 months post CO contact for grant. Then there’s Immi commence email group who can wait for who knows how long for grant (again this is random) then another unlucky bunch who seem to just be forgotten about with no contact. The positive news is we will all get our grant eventually, none of us have a crystal ball it’s extremely frustrating but everything happens for a reason and when it’s meant to happen it will 🙂
