Apart from this, I heard that the gov has given other roles to employees and moved them to different departments, other say the have been saked. That might be the reason it is 8 months backlog.
Another main reason is the cancellation of the paper application and swithching all the applications to Brisbane office. Who knows, the same number of officers in Brisbane who used to work only on online application are now doing receiving all the load. Before it used to be between 2 weeks to 2 months to get the bloody visa.
I applied in September, I hope by the end of the year they will have finished all that backlog and everybody will get his visa by the end of the year.
We need just to forget it and think about something else until we get the golden e-mail as a surprise :)
good luck for everybody
Anyone could just tell me if somebody is on visa 475 in Australia and he has to apply for a spouse visa from Australia(as I know that he has to apply from Australia, not from the country where his partner is) to call his partner to Australia then what would be the embassy fee.
Hi, we applied March 18, and have just been approved today...
We weren't allocated a CO., just received PR straight away...good luck to everyone else
