Ideally it seems that the case officers haven't resumed their offices in full swing. Two of my friend's different Mara agents have mentioned two dates about resuming office i.e. 14th and 29th Jan. Not sure which one has the right idea. Time will tell.

I wish all those waiting so long should get their visa approved first especially you.

Hey kavipihu - glad to hear you have reached some sort of peace with the extended delay.

Did you hear anything back from the form you submitted on the DHA website?

The Commonwealth Ombudsman may be another option to cajole the process along, although they do state in their FAQ that they generally will not investigate complaints regarding delayed visa processing.

Hey Pretty - What else can you do when you have only one option! While, I did receive a reply from the DHA but it was pretty standard (I shared it on the 2018 thread) So nothing much you can decipher from it. I would now rather wait since that's what I have programmed myself for.

What about you?

Hey Pretty, just wanted to ask. Is it normal to not have any sort of contact or commencement even after 165 days?
