Hi,
I raised a PLE 2 days back and this is what they have replied with.
*****************************************************************

We are seeking to finalise your application as soon as possible. You will
appreciate, however, that all non-citizens applying for visas to enter

Unfortunately, there is no set time for the processing of applications for

We appreciate your patience in this matter.

That 12-month "promise" came recently on Sep23. I think that's why CSL folks get assigned COs so fast.

Considering non-CSL gets delayed till at least 2012, I'm not complaining, mate.

No.. Not yet.
I also had the highest concern about the job verification.
I don't know what to do in this scenario?

Hi Gopal:

You or your agent need to ask DIAC if they know you are on CSL (sometimes you need to confirm that). It's been too long if you applied in Aug 08 (2 yrs in a week).

I wonder if you need new PCCs or Medicals due to the time taken by DIAC.

Hi,
I raised a PLE 2 days back and this is what they have replied with.
