e mail address is - [email protected]. For once I contacted directly.

I understand that recently there has been a heavy rush of applications and therefore the process is also getting slower.

Anyway it is always better to confirm receipt of your application.


Cheers!

Update on my case
CC has been charged on 7th May.
So I guess it takes about one week after receipt of all documents/details at the EA end to get the charges reflected in the CC account.

What about your case

Cheers!

I didn't know that even after sending the application in April ur credit card got charged in May. Why do you guys hire agents? They are actually good for nothing!

I agree. Particularly when forums such as these provide us with mountains of useful information. Experience is a great teacher. Lessons have been learnt. But there are no points for crying over split milk. These are inputs for the future.

As of my case ,application was send from india on 14-April and fee was debited on 18th so one week time to check documents and then fee charging is not correct I think

But as u said these agents are really good for nothing even I m applying through them but I believe all the mind work is being done by me to keep them on their toes.

I think the agents are misguiding you. I had sent the documents on the 10th Apr and they reached on the 11th Apr to EA. I got the CID number on the 16th and the application date is provided as 12th Apr. So I don't think they take so much time to actually start processing.Anyways they will check documents only after they have charged your CC. They won't do anything for free.

I am concerned on the speed they are doing the processing now. Seems like we will receive the results after 4 months in the current speed.

Hey I have some info for u. Maybe it can help.
I am on a 457 in Australia and during the Visa processing I had given my credit card details to an Australian insurance company for booking a policy. I gave the details on my indian credt card(visa). The company came back after a few days saying that they could not charge the card.Then I sent in another card and then only they could do it.
Check with EA why is there a problem with credit card.There are issues with indian credit cards while they try to charge them in Australia

Did you e mail EA. Tell them your situation. In my case there was a problem with the CC details. But the agent did not tell me that, instead I got the information when I contacted EA directly. Once given the fee was charged within 4 working days. Also please cater for the time the application takes to reach EA from dubai.

Look

As per rules suggested on EA website ,one should get the receipt of the application with a weeks time (to the max I think 10-12 days are ok if you are in india)

And if your fees is still not debited from your CC then I think it is a matter of worry because CID is just a acknowledgement of your application however ,debiting fee from your account is very important as once this fees will debited then only your assessment work could start

So my advise to you is confirm from your agent by asking courier details of application and also contact directly EA to know the reason of delay

Nice to know that, finally. So now timewise both of us are in the same boat. You are in fact better of than my case, where the application was handed over to the Agent on 08 Apr and finally the CC was charged on 7th May after much correspondence. Nobody can beat that!!!
Anyway, it seems that the speed of processing applications at EA has speeded up by a few days. I think the results should be out by two months. But we should be extremely lucky to make it before 1 July.

Debiting of fees is important. So don't worry, if it is on 7th, you'll get the CID anytime now.
