Diac / Aspc Timelines
Hi all, we applied for our 175 visa on 08/01/2008 and was wondering if anybody could tell me what applications the ASPC are processing at the moment.
Our agent advised us to get our medicals and police checks done before we submitted so we only have until December to activate our hopeful visa and am getting a bit anxious!
If anyone could advise it may help to control my stress levels.
We applied for our 175 last October and although we have a CO we are still waiting for news of the big V.
Thank you, at least i know it should only be a couple of months before we get a case officer
Here's the latest processing information, the 175 visa has moved on for 3 weeks though which is a worry for us too as we applied for a 176 visa on 25th November - good luck with your application.

What docs do you need to scan in for the initial application?
Do they need certifying before you send them?
I am also a bit confused about time left on passport cos it recommends at least 6 months but i have also read that you should use the passport that you are going to travel over with and have at least 2 years left on it! very confusing, I have renewed it anyway as it only had a year left and would need doing eventually.

We've not done our meds and pcs yet as our agent told us to hang fire on that for a couple of months because it could take that long to get a CO. I'm just wondering whether to get our meds done anyway and send them off, at least they'll be there with our application ready for when we get our CO (either that or they'll get lost in the system as there is not a CO assigned!!) Sorry, don't mean to sound negative. I'm just fed up of all this waiting and it feels like it's never going to move forward.
Our agent advised that if we front loaded police checks and medicals it would help speed up the application when we finally get a case officer but it does shorten the time you have to activate your visa so i think its a no win situation, it sounds like you should get some progress shortly. Good luck
We are waiting on a case officer for our 475 Visa, which has not moved for 5 WEEKS now.
If you send a blank e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with no subject line and no text you will recieve an e-mail back with the current processing times. These are updated every tuesday but in most case's you need to wait untill Wednesday for the inforamtion to update.
