Hi Mate,

We are sailing on the same boat, what I understand so far that out of 100 applicants their are hardly 5 papebased applicants, I have chosen this path coz I dont have Credit card of that limit, anyway their is no way to check your status.

How did u get that File Reference Number by DIAC-GSM Adelaide, is it by Acknowledgment or what?
If so how much time it took to get that Ack. after lodging your application?

All the best!

Cheers! :)

Hi...

Mine was paper application as well, and I did everything on my own without an Agent. I submitted all the required documents, (IELTS 8.0 and my wife's IETLS is 7.5, housewife).

Application lodged (sent by courier service from Malaysian) on 1st October 2009. DIAC Acknowledged Receipt on 8th October 2009.

Case Officer Appointed on 21 January 2010, and requested I do my Police Checks and Medical Check ups, and wants me to reply within 28 days with all documents.

Police Checks Certificate received from Malaysian Department of Foreign Affairs and EMAILED to DIAC/Case Officer on 29th January 2010. Medicals Done on the 30th January 2010. Doctor couriered Medical Report to Australia on 3rd February 2010. Medicals arrived in Immigration australia Office in Sydney on 8th February 2010.

So now, I am just sitting here and waiting. Can't do much anymore.

keep posted
Hi erviren,

I haven't heard anything yet after the automated response, added to it my agent is on leave, however i dont expect tht she knows anything about how to follow it up. She claims that i'd receive an email when a CO is assigned. I dont know how correct this info is.

I tried to follow it up with another person at the consultancy where my agent works, and i was informed there is already a CO assigned to me. There is some miscommunication here.

I haven't received any request for Meds or PCC. Hoping tht there should be something this month. :eyebrows:

Hi,

That's an interesting question that I would like to clarify with you regarding "job verification". To be honest, I don't know much about how this works, because as far as I know, those of my friends who got their Visas approved (175) never had DIAC contacting their employers or previous employers (But then, I might be the unlucky one).

What happened for me was, with the application form, I also submitted all my Testimonials (got my previous employers to write up one according to the guidelines requested by DIAC website), then I also submitted my Current Letter of Employment with my current company (Of course I got all these certified True copy by the solicitor in my country). I also submitted my Income Tax Returns for the past 5 years (Certified).

What I forgot to mention in my previous thread is that, in the 21 January 2010 email from my case officer, they asked me to attached 2 more items concerning my employment:-

1) Payslips for the last 12 out of 24 months (which I have, and scanned and emailed to them on the 22/1/10)

2) Superannuation Statements for the last 2 years (2008 and 2009). I got these statements translated into English by a certified translator because they were in native malay language.

But what I did was also got my current employer (the Executive Director) to write a simple letter, specifying that I have been working with the Company since July 2008 (which I have sent DIAC my letter of employment dated July 2008), and is currently still with them, and am in the position of an Accountant. My Executive Director also specified briefly my job function and what I have achieved with the Company.

This was not requested by DIAC, but according to a friend of mine, that was what he did with his application. So I scanned the letter (in colour, depicting the Company Letter Head, address, etc etc) and emailed it to my case Officer on the 25th January 2010.

So this is as far as I have done.

As for receiving Telephone Calls from DIAC to my employer, .... ahh.. this one I am in the dark about... But I am hoping that the evidences that I have provided will be sufficient for them to decide.

What do you think?

you are right that we would get CO soon as we are dec candidates, but you know what....My agent is confident and sure that there would be no movement to my case so soon and she is saying that do not go for PCC as there are lots of changes happening from DIAC, so m lost and no idea!!!!

one major drawback for me is that application lodged paper based and m totally dependant on my agent if they receive any email or not from DIAC as it would be in their INBOX so wait wait n wait

Erviren,

I spoke to my agent, she very confidently tells me that for paper based applications the CO would email us when they are assigned, which somehow i'm still not convinced with her reply. I applied in sep-09 and received employer verification call in dec-09, still no reply from them about the status of my application even after raising PLE. My agent says that she would call DIAC, i'll keep you posted about the details, maybe it might come handy for you. Pray for me :pray:

Cheers !!

Hi Srn,

Thanks

you received employer verification call that means you shud have a CO, its my view because when any CO picks your application then only they process further to check for jobs etc, i may be wrong here too

When did you raise a PLE? did you raise it or your agent? m fed up of my agent, she dsnt bother and confident that there will be no movement, so be patient and wait for atleast 6 months from now :( :(

pls keep posted when you have any update from you agent or DIAC, surely it would be very useful.....

All with Paper based applicant & an agent representation,

You can ask your agent to update your email id (not his/hers) for communication from DIAC. There is an application form to do the same.
Then you would be in a position to rise a PLE and get an update in your inbox.

Hey naveen,

Once PLE is lodged, ideally it should 5-6 buss days for you to receive a response, however, i haven't come across anyone wo received response within the timescales mentioned. You will defintely receive one however might take more than that. So, best we can do is to only wait.

Hi erviren,

Honestly, this processing tests our patience. My agent mailed me again today saying that i would definately receive an email when a CO is assigned and also not necessarily that employer verification will be done only after a CO is assigned, it can be done without a CO being assigned to our application; is what my agent tells me. Imagine, its been 5 months since i lodged my application.

Since, we use agent, if i'm not wrong, agent has to call DIAC or raise a PLE on our behalf, however response will be sent to us. This is my understanding on this, coz we do not have details required to raise PLE. I lodged my application in sep-2009, however raised PLE in last week of jan-2010, i received an automated response from them in feb.
