Hi,

Can you please mention the exact timeline? Like when you sent EOI, when you received a response on EOI, has there been a case officer assigned, when you did PCC, HC etc.? You can update your timeline by clicking on 'Immigration timeline' on your profile page. Please clarify. Thanks!

Okay, could be that they are going over documents or may be the CO went on leave or something. Anything is possible, actually. I'm sure the wait is difficult considering you lodged 8 months back. Be patient - a reply will come soon. Fingers crossed

Yap, We have no other way except waiting...

Actually, One of my source told me if they are not happy or satisfied with inquiry They will come again and due to that CO not replied still after 3.5 months. is that true?

Yes, they might reach out to you again if they have a query. However, you cannot ascertain that if they have not replied, they are not satisfied. The TAT for CO varies depending upon the number of applications, scores of each applicant. For instance, someone with 70 points might get preference over someone with 60 points only Regarding scanning the application. So, may be they have started reviewing other applications as well. That could be the reason for delay. These are speculative reasons and Not Certain at all. Differs from case to case. You just stay positive and all will fall in place! All the best!!!

I am also in the same boat. Lodged visa in 28 September and waiting for the grant.DIBP mentioned 75% applications are processed within 05 months and most completed applications are finalised within 03 months. Is there any evidence of grants within 03 months for 2017? Are they give preference over high points of just process applications in the order of received? Please share your views.

Mahesh - To answer your query, points are secondary; the lodgement date is more important. Given the current timelines, it is taking approx 3-4 months from lodgement date for visa grant. It has been 3 months since i filed for visa on 04th Sept. On 04th Oct, a CO was assigned. Either my grant could come this month or in January.

All the best for your grant! Keep your fingers crossed. It could come anytime.
