Dear Members,
We who waited for our decision for 3 months or more can share our experiences and changes as well in this thread so that we can determine our waiting period.

But there is a timeline for them to take decision within 3 months, isnt ?
Well if you read carefully, they endeavor to complete processing within 90 days but no hard and fast rule. I guess their target is to process 75% of applications within 90 days.

If you take last 90 days data of 190 visa their claim of 75% will fall flat. Infact i dont think they even touched 20%.

I have a feeling the speed of grants depends on which team is allocated to process your visa.. Initially I believed that they were focussing on Onshore applicants and applicants with exceptional circumstances. But that I ruled out when few Offshore applicants from March were granted the visa when Jan and Feb still awaits their golden email and in some cases even a CO allocation.

Skilled- Nominated (190) type visa only affected but Skilled- Independent (189) not affected at all. They got their grant within 3 months.

A post from a different forum...

My IMMI status changed from 'processing' to 'application received' a week or two ago, and after mailing my VPO to ask why, I got this response this morning:

"This means the application is ready for decision however as outlined in the email below, the Department has reached the maximum number of visas granted in the 190 visa category for this Programme Year. Visas will re-commence to decision 1 July 2015."

So at least there's no more guessing involved. 1 July it is.

Did you call them and tried asking about the actual status.
it seems some external check is going on....check with your previous company managers if they got any verification call so far.

My last updated date changed after i called them....
But in my case no change last update date except some changes in document recommended to not required nothing else.
By the way does delay mail means positive or negative things for processing?

Ok. Thanks for the info. But did they say it will be processed in july over phone ?

I dont think that will help Harish.
In my case,81 days are completed and when contacted, got delay mail.

Do they respond to calls? I did not called yet.
How much time usually they take for external checks, it's already going to be eight months since i applied.

waiting is really tough...
