      [QUOTE=sugarboy;308360]I would suggest you to drop an email to: adelaide.gsm.team10@immi.gov.au and inquire in writing as to if you are required to take any action or not. CO usually takes 3-6 business days to reply back. This will mean you have a response in writing from them as to whats going on with your case. This also presents you with an opportunity to inquire with the processing team directly status of your application and to see if your checks are over. If you don't mind me asking can you please share when did Team 13 contact you if they did at all?

      On a side note, did you do full medicals for you and your family members for 475 visa? Full medical includes:

      1. a chest x-ray and (if aged 11 years or older or considered appropriate on clinical grounds)
      2. an HIV test (if aged 15 years or older or considered appropriate on clinical grounds).

      Thanks sugarboy....I already asked for an update of my application last week and got a reply yesterday that the checks are still going on......though I didn't ask about the medical...we did have a complete medical before we came....my elder one turned 15 over here........team 13 did contact me last year in January for form 80 and

      overseas documents translated to english need to be certified. Documents such as payslips, utility bills issued online or via email don't need to be certified.

      If security clearance would like police clearance, thousands of applicants from 2013 wouldn't not suffer. I applied for police clearance yesterday 5 pm, got dispatched email today 10am. For 8 years long, I have been living here, and they think police clearance is not enough.

      Two of my Friends from Bangladesh applied in Nov 2014 from 489 to 887 and both has been allocated visa on 28/01/2014. I applied in July 2014 and still waiting. What a quick response from immigration. Hope we all will get soon as well.

      Would you please tell us that how did you find out exact date of sending your case to ESC? After September I didn't hear any case has been send to ESC as lot of my friends got visas and I am waiting from July 2014. To whom did you speak and what you have been suggested after? How long it takes after ESC allocation?

      I am considering raising this with Commonwealth Ombudsman http://www.ombudsman.gov.au/pages/ab...ce-charter.php or email: ombudsman@ombudsman.gov.au . Not decided yet but thinking about it. I think multiple complaints of the same nature will make a strong case and get them to take action and make recommendations to DIBP.

      Basically what I would be looking at stressing in my communication is:

      1. DIBP does not provide any further details on our case other than "routine checks". I am sure due to freedom of information laws you are entitled to know stuff - especially about your own application.
      2. We have done our fair share of waiting - some have waited here more than others. There's nothing wrong with cases being sent for ESC as long as they get a response back in a given time. PR applications from high risk applicants from other sub classes eventually gets processed but applicants here are waiting from April 2013 - totally insanse.
      3. Fact that 887 is meant to be processed in the order of receipt of applications by DIBP, but new applications are processed in a timely fashion - outlining the justice factor here.
      4. Difficulties we face due to uncertainty.

      I would request them to work towards the following actions:

      1. More clarity as to whats going on with our checks.
      2. Estimated ETA if it can be provided (probably never gonna happen due to the nature of referrals to ASIO).
      3. Any administrative arrangements which would help to have these applications processed faster would be great.

      I think raising our voice is better than not doing anything and only waiting. There are avenues through which we can raise our voice, we should use them and use them wisely. Like for example if one person will complain probably nothing will happen but if 10 people make the same complaint then obviously they'll realize there is something wrong and maybe something can be done to fix it.
