Hi All,

It has been 6 months 6 days now, each and every possible document that could be, i have already provided, I lodged the PR on 8th Dec. 2018 with 70 points for computer network and system engineer.

Still grant is not received, what might be happening? So worried and life is stuck around this, not able to do anything.
Getting job opportunities outside my company but can't change.

Not able to focus on my current work and not getting opportunities in my organization because my manager knows that I have plans to move. Not able to make any changes in personal life.

Everybody I know through various online portals or in-person with same points and same code has received the grant even those who lodged 1 or 2 months after me.

I received query from CO on 19th March 2019 about my wife's birth certificate, I provided it on same day, still no updates.

What to do (apart from wait :) )

Regards.

Nothing to worry. This is a very common process and happens with every now and then. Thankfully you got your CO contact means your case is in progress and nothing has been raised yet so stay put and don't lose hope :)

btw, no one is stopping to do this. It is perfectly fine to switch jobs during visa processing

Thank Mohsin, actually it's not easy to focus on your work and change job when you have some other plans.
Just one thing to know, when the time given in immi-portal passes out (6-7 months mentioned there), should I contact authorities ?
Is it ok to contact them or any harmful effects?

Usually, they won't interfere in the application unless you have an abnormality in waiting time. 6-7 months are generic timelines so you should wait for an extra few months and if no response comes, you may raise your query to them for asking the update

@mohsinciddiki I spoke DHA yesterday as per them they said 75 percent of application deal in 6 months and 90 percent application deal in 7 months so after 6-7 months again wait for 3-4 months thats totally unfair if they raise any query after 6 months then again its a wait of 3-4 months again so its mean u have to wait 1 years to process your application.

Oooh no, this is very very disturbing and sad to see this, I just logged in and shocked to see now it is showing 7-8 months, 2 days backs it was 6-7 months. This is worst phase , waiting and waiting and waiting, everything in life is stopped and revolving around this only. Daily morning the first that comes to mind is about Australia PR. So much money and time invested. This is sad.

only wait that all and hope for the best and who applied and NOV-JAN they should deal in July
But my friend with same points and same anszco code got the invite in 3 months. He and I got the invite on same date on 11th Nov. 2018.
Why is this so?
He also got the CO query but he got the PR withing 3 months, filed on 8th Jan 2019 and got the grant on 10th April 2019.... I filed on 8th Dec. 2018 and still waiting.
Is it because few are lucky and other are not?

Every cases are different and you and your friend wouldn’t have had the same CO. I understand your feeling and everything else evolves around your application, good you had a CO contact to know at least someone is working on your application. Give it few more months and you might receive your grant soon. Check immitracker to see other people’s application progress if that helps. Usually 189 visa processing are a bit faster compared to 190. If you ring DHA, they will give you a generic response, it’s all in the media now that the processing time has extended and this could be as a result of many reasons. In your case, I don’t think it’s extraordinary as many people are in the same situation. My application is about 5 months now and no contact whatsoever, I’ll advise you exercise a bit more patience as you can’t really do much about it.

@ABCDE I agreed when I called DHA couple of week before and inquire about my application that 4 months passed no CO contact the lady responded me well and ask me to hold while she can checked with the case team about my application progress then she told me after a long wait the CO is assigned to your application and he do not need any further documents and still my status is showing received and only progress in my application is that may be CO touch my file and made correction my son sir name which is not mention in passport so its showing NULL next to my son sir name so you never know what is going on yesterday I called DHA again and they said me wait no information provided and said wait for the processing time mention in your immi account so we have to wait I know this wait is like a mountain.

Nothing yet, on a long waiting list. No grant or CO contact yet.
Never felt so helpless before, because this is so completely out of control that nobody can help out...so much time, money and dreams invested
 
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
