Hey thanks for above information..could you please elaborate how it make difference for single applicant??Hello All ,
We all have different opinion of people not getting any allocation of CO from DIAC . Some of us got contacted in 4-5 months others waiting for more then 7 months.I have spoken with DIAC staff and they were friendly to tell me about the basis issues behind the application .As i have mentioned in one of my last post that there are some priorties based on your family size or whether you are single to start with your application. Cutting long story short few things to keep in mind .
1)Make sure you submit your application correctly with no error at all in first place and submit all the documents.
2) Prepare your police report and other certificate 99.99% chances your CO will ask for these documents .
3) Medical is not essential until your CO ask you or there is a change in circumstances after you lodge your application. For instance you wish to add a baby or you got married etc .
4)You can travel as long as you have a valid visa or bridging acquired.Even after you lodge it does not make any difference with the time DIAC need to get back to you.
5) Do regularly contact DIAC , best way is to send them email even if you do a slight change with your file .
6) If you do not get contacted maximum in six month something is definetly wrong . Do check with DIAC it does not take that long for them to get back to you since you lodge your application.
7)Do not submit unnecessary documents and make file size smaller and more conveneient for CO to assess . For instance , if you are submitting payslips not 52 payslips with 52 files . Just one file and one category one file no need to provide too much of document unless they come back to you and ask in future .
Trust me if everything is well formated and structured six month is your time for receiving golden email . People who has crossed this time have different scenario and it does not necessarily applies to all of you who have lodged 887 .
The best till the date i have seen is a couple who received their golden email in 4 months and 27 days with no further documents .
Good luck to all
Also there are few people on this forum which are not allocated yet..so that means delays are expected in their cases?
