dear all, i applied in April and finished medical in June but no response yet. i am 489FS
Does Kenya come under high risk countries, where extra security checks take place ?

That maybe the reason for your delay.

thanks mjamal14, i went through various sites to find high risk countries list but couldn't find one stating them. i took the e-health assessment earlier and informed everything is fine. and if detailed character assessment is required, how long may it take whatever procedure is followed? your support is really appreciated. thanks

It may take 8-9 months or even more than a year.Follow the threads on applicants from Pakistan and Bangladesh for more details

thanks mjamal14. actually the news is very horrible and has point. but while lodging my application, i never came across with such information. i just read average processing time for 489FS is 6 months.
and because i get C/O assigned within 4 weeks instead of the average 8 months, i thought i will recieve my grant with maximum 4/5 months. but now it is in the lapse of 7th month.
by the way, from which date the time you mention starts counting?
regards

The client service charter I linked to shows family sponsored being 12 months. It is state sponsored that is 6 months.

thanks sir, it is a hard fact i should get convinced by. but i see in various timelines FS applicants getting their grant faster than even 3/4 months sometimes. don't you think there is a way 489FS applicants get their golden grant with shorter time span than 12?

Its possible but the more people that apply the more work the CO have so the longer it takes to grant. I would assume 12 months then if it is granted earlier it will be a lovely surprise for you.

i saw thin in another forum. what can you say for this. is this true there is no hope for 489FS category under golden 6 occupations.

Thank you for your enquiry through our Global Feedback Unit.

We are receiving a high number of Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the occupation group 2613 – Applications and Software Programmers. To ensure that invitations are available for this occupation group, alternative arrangements have been implemented. The invitations available for each invitation round are issued to subclass 189 – skilled independent first, then should any invitations remain they are issued to subclass 489 – skilled regional (provisional).
