      i know they send my application to external security clearance and what i am hearing form people is that it take almost 2 yrs, is it true ?....can some one comment
      I again suggest that all us of should organise get togethers in our respective cities and raise this issue collectively rather individually to expedite all the formalities.

      I'm sorry mate but you can't do nothing about it.Security check is part of DIBP's tight security protocol against terrorism. If it takes ages to process then it's your home country's deficiency why it is taking so long. They should expedite whatever information requested by DIBP in a timely manner. All CO's want a speedy result coz it is their burden if they havea pending case at their hands. Now, it is either you withdraw your application or wait for year or years to come out the result.

      Cheers.

      EightEightSeven,

      The security assessment is generally performed by the agencies onshore.

      The governmental audit report documented at: http://www.anao.gov.au/Publications/...Audit-brochure tells you the number of applications in backlog and clearly explains why it takes longer and where the bottle neck lies.

      For those interested, this report is the best source of information on what's going on.

      Thank you Sugarboy for the very informative link. I've briefly gone through the article and i find it very straightforward. Now, given the ASIO agency carries out the security check with their tedious methods & mechanisms mentioned, I believe we can partly blame on the home country for their slow response since they are the ones who supply every information required by the security agency.

      I am about to apply for 887 visa very soon , if anybody can help to clarify about my following query it will be appreciated.

      1) I am working as a personal care assistant in aged care as apart time employee almost 2 years cause I couldn't get job on my skilled nominated occupation , where I am working in first week for 32 hrs and second week for 38.75 hrs as a part time employee. my question is ,did I full filled my work requirements criteria for visa subclass 887 ?
      2) I don't have lease and utility bills in my name ,this is in my husband name , can I submit statutory declaration from my husband for living requirements.

      thanks

      Hi Nep12,
      The law says the following:
      The applicant must have worked full‑time in a specified regional area for a total of at least 1 year as the holder of 1 or more of the visas eligible for subclass 887.
      According to immi.gov.au and ABS (Australian bureau of statistics), full time employment is "usually" at least 35 hours a week.
      I would say you should be OK as long as you can show 52 weeks where you've worked 35 hours or more.

      To answer your second question, you are not strictly required to submit utility bills under your name, it is just suggested by Immi as one of the documents through which you can prove your residence in the regional area. You may use other documents such as:

      1. Your public transport history
      2. Bank Statements
      3. Club and Gym memberships
      4. Letter from your workplace with your residential address on it.

      Dun worry about the statutory declaration, in my opinion the above documents should be sufficient. In any case if he case officer needs further proof or documentation they will contact you.

      Hi Guys,

      After analyzing the Allocation dates in Immi web page ("http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/estimated-allocation-times.htm") my gut feeling was that, they are processing the application in order which they received. But no Idea how many application they processed and close.

      are they refer the applications which has been received a particular month or any target applications (i.e 100 or 1000) in a particular month?

      Regards,
      KevinG
