Mystic river, good morning, a friend of mine applied wih his wife and kid for visa 189; it has been 5 months since he applied. He called them they said they are doing security check; how long do security checks take up to your knowledge?

Personally I have seen upto 3 years (36 months), but that is lonely case. However I have seen many cases where it took from 18 months to 24 months.

On the other end, I have seen people getting in 1.5 months as well.

So all depends on your country, and your luck.

. Oh god!!!! That is devastating! The waiting is a killer!! And I am assuming they will do security check in my case because my husband has visa refusals; do they up to your knowledge do security checks for all visa refusals?

I am not sure about visa refusal checks, but the security check normally takes more for citizens of certain countries which Australia considers as high security risk countries.
