Unfortunately for these people their visas will only get processed if there are any places left (given the financial year quota) which doesn't look it it'll happen. Their applications are delayed because of immigration department priority processing policies. Ours are delayed cause they are stuck with ASIO.
Subclasses 489 – Renewal, 489 – Subsequent Entrant and 887 Skilled - Regional are exempt from the priority processing direction and applications are processed in the order in which they were received.
Hope that helps.
Applied from 489 to 887 on 9 May 2015
Case Officer since 17 June 2015
Visa Grant on 1 July 2015
Good luck to all applicants, in particular for those waiting so long!

By processed it means its allocated to CO in the order in which application is logged. The department does not guarantee the order in which applications will be finalized as it differs between different applicants due to various reasons.
ASIO checks for other subclasses are quicker than 887 leading me to believe that other sub classes have a higher priority for ASIO vs 887.
I am just wondering - what ASIO/ASIS checks?
If they scare that we are terrorist - then it is too late - we all are in Australia, we go the same shop they go, we live the same street they live.
My neighbor is military and I live close to police - is it not good enough for security? (I am kidding)

No problem if they want to check our background but i am pretty sure that it would be very costly to check every person by using agents (cost millions),
So most likely they use computer system to get the answer and this pretty obvious for even not experienced computer developer this can be achieved by matter of seconds or minutes by creating a batch job of all applicants and run the job.
So I think it's kind of a business....
