Dear All,

I found about this forum yesterday and became a member. It's extremely resourceful and the contribution of all these friendly people are just amazing!


We are a family of 3 including a 6 month old daughter.

We got state sponsorship for ACT and have applied for 176 on March 05 2012. A case officer was assigned on March 29. Submitted our PCC on Mar 19 and medical yesterday (Apr 07). All requirements except PCC and Medical are showing "Met" in the website. Any expert guess how soon we can expect a VISA grant?

Kind regards.

If your case go under external checks then it may take 6-12 months from now or you will get your grant soon! Few BD guys stuck for this external/security checks. You will get their response too.

wish your speedy grant.

Thanks for the info:). Hope I don't get stuck. BTW is BD a high risk country in terms of security check?

when CO assinged,which documents did he ask for?
if he asked for med,pcc then I think it ll not take so long for grant.
I got my grant within almost 10 days after med pcc asked. :)

Hi,

Well the CO did not ask for any documents so far. He just put "Met" in all the documents that we provided (as per lawyer's guideline) and put "Required" for PCC, Medical and Chest X ray (date 29-03-12). However, we sent our PCC on 19-03-12 and Medicals on 07-04-12.

Gotta check with my lawyer if there is any update since last online check. DIAC was closed for the long Easter weekend.

Kind regards.

Wait for a few more working days. I know this is perhaps the most anxious period in recent months for you. It was for me at least.

I got the grant a couple of weeks after medicals reached. See my timelines in the signature.

So expect the magic email in a few days... All the best!

Did you contact your agent about this? What did s/he reply? Since CO didn't request for medical and PCC it may take longer time to finalise your case. I have sent you PM. I am also from Bangladesh. Details are in my signature. I was also not requested to do medical and PCC. But unfortunately I applied these before and uploaded on 22nd March 2012 (the day CO was allocated). On 13th April, I emailed CO to know the status of the application. She replied that my application is undergoing routine processing. The meaning of this can be anything and I can't predict when visa will be granted. Just waiting...
