Hi guys,

I am curious on few things regarding my 190 visa grant. Could someone know what is the normal time to get Case Officer allocation? Also, how long does it take for complete grant process since visa lodge? In addition, what is the minimum time to get visa granted?

I would highly appreciate your info.

Cheers

Hi urn,

you can check the DIAC Client Service Charter. DIAC aims to process 75% of all 190 visa applications within 6 months but actual processing time can vary considerably. You should get a CO allocated within 5 weeks of lodgement. Note that does not mean s/he actually works on your application, just that it is assigned to somebody. The CO only contacts you if s/he wants anything so it's hard to tell when s/he starts working on your application ;). Check the following thread if you want to compare timelines:

Cheerio,

Hi Monika,

Thank you very much for your reply.

I heard some people got grant notice within 20 days and some of them are waiting for more than three months. Any idea at all about this?

Thanks in advance

Hi urn,

did you go through the medicals and submit your PCC(s) and form 80 already? One aspect that can speed up the process is to have everything ready and just waiting for the CO to tick his/her boxes ;). We got our (189) grant a couple of days after the first contact with the CO. In my experience they are very competent and fast with processing.

However, we applied in December, just before the Christmas holiday season, so DIAC was understaffed during that time and it took longer to get a CO assigned. Note that there are also multiple things that can delay processing beyond the COs control: Referred medicals or upload problems with the eHealth system, security checks (especially if your local government takes a while to submit the information DIAC wants to know), employment verification etc.

The bottom-line is that there isn't much that you can do to speed up the process, except to make sure that your documents are in order, complete and coherent. We added a cover sheet for all types of evidence to ensure that the CO could get a quick overview, for example for the payslips:

Payslips 2007 – 2009
Certified translation of most recent payslip (November 2012) page 2
Payslips 2007 (all) page 7
Payslips 2008 (all) page 12
Payslips 2009 (all except February) page 26

For payslips 2010 – 2012 see second attachment.
Our CO confirmed that it helped a lot.

Cheers and good luck,
Monika

Hi symphony,

I got one certified translation of the most recent payslip for each employer. Otherwise I just scanned them in, because they all follow the same format. Payslips usually don't look like much and getting certified copies would not "add" anything in my opinion.

I also submitted tax return documents, which were signed electronically by the government and could be verified online. Finally, if the CO wants to check anything, s/he can still call your referees or the financial department of your employer.

Cheers,
Monika

In addition to this question, if we are not claiming any points should we still upload work related proofs? Payslips, bank statements?

I am just claiming points for age, degree in university, IELTS and state sponsorship

Hi,

I've applied for Visa on 11th March 2014, still waiting for CO. I think that 7 weeks are over. Any idea what to do? Subclass is 190.
How much time is it currently taking for CO allocation, if someone has recently got CO allocated for 190, can they please shed some light on the same?
