Thats not a problem. They dont contact you just to let you know or chat. They will only be in touch if and when they need something from you. If you prepared a good application that may only be when they want medicals and PCC.

oh rather occupation ceiling had been reached
hie... you are right, its nothing to do with slowness, its just that the nominated occupation had reached its ceiling and thus they could not make anymore invites. the other thing is that........, if you noticed on 1 July 2013 there was quite a number of invites, its like they put all invites on hold waiting for the ushering of the new visa fees, so that we would meet the visa fee hikes, to their advantage. that is the game

thats exactly whats happening with me, the CO has not contacted me either..... l only found out recently(yesterday) after calling DIAC customer care, that l had long been given a CO....Interestingly he/she has never contacted me.....

to me that does not make any sense, what can be put on hold is invites on the EOI if an occupation ceiling has been reached.....
Agree. This cant be true for applicants awaiting their grants as their slot has been already counted. I believe the member who posted that thread has already been granted her 489 visa. Seems CO overlooked it.
