    Let's hope to see some more grants today. Nevertheless, for October we have seen 35 grants through this forum and tracker. Which is absolutely fantastic news! (July and August we received 19 grants and in September 30) Also, 9 were from applicants August '18, meaning that 26 grants were from given to well overdue people between Feb'18 and May '18. Congratulations to all of you! Hopefully some more today. Fingers crossed. And already looking forward to an even better November.

    Listen mate, this is a voluntary forum, and is very helpful. It just seems that you are frustrated when you do not get an immediate answer to your queries, this is not an on-demand service. We can only give opinions. Some of us had to pay for advice through agents so you have no right to make demands. Get off your high horse and if you don't like what you see then take some $ out of your pocket and pay an agent.

    The hardest part for me is that they keep changing the rules about this visa. Since we arrived we have seen: - additional stamp duty when purchasing property - this made it nearly impossible for people to buy a house - new waiting times for centrelink benefits - which will make it hard for young families as they will be cut out on the family tax benefit for another year - change in regional areas - there had been better opportunities for us if those areas were available from the start - medicare is immediately available for the new visas that replace our 489 - private health is expensive for us - and the endlessly increase of our processing times - which gives us anxiety and stress All this felt every time as a punch in the face. So yes, we should win the bravery, determination and the I-can-do-it-even-if-you-give-me-a-hard-time award. We all just want to get started in this life, not be stuck somewhere inbetween.

    Hi Everyone, It's quite unfortunate processing time keeps increasing in a short space of time. I have tried to do a little bit of research with regards to processing of visas in DHA . These are some facts which might help; 1. Processing times are not legally backed by any legislation thus its issued by the sole discretion and prerogative of the Minister ( DHA). The minister is given power to prioritize and reduce certain processing times based on compassion and not by LAW. This probably accounts for why DHA don't feel threatened by the excessive increase. 2. Unlike the past where only one Case Officer is Assigned to a case, Now multiple Case officers work on one file and each file has a checklist box which needs to be checked anytime a CO picks up the file. This probably accounts for why different case officers request for more Info based on what they feel as sufficient or not. 3. Once an application is made, Case officers are quickly assigned to scan through all the documents and then the file goes back to the queue. If the very first case officer after the initial assessment doesn't request for further docs, the status will still remain RECEIVED but does does not imply the file is not under processing. 4.Lastly, the problem now in the delay of processing is getting your file picked up again in the queue after request for further Documents because the frequency of picking your file increases most of the checklist boxes to be checked making the application a DECISION READY application. Once its DECISION READY the last Case officer who picks it up eventually Grants the visa. These are just research gathered from different forums and may not be entirely accurate but hope it helps those who want to have an idea what goes on in the DHA processing centre.

    Not a fair statement to make; all of us try to help with best abilities whenever we can and with whatever personal experiences we have. Everyone cannot have experience with all the situations hence its always best to either call DIBP or check there site which has step wise details. Just to share an experience; Yesterday i asked one question and did not get any response doesn't mean that people don't want to help but i would like to believe that members here probably don't have any experience with such situation; its always whether glass is half full or half empty situation; nevertheless all the best!!

    Hi X76804. Most active forum members will notice that your responses or posts only include a "." and therefore you do not contribute much at all. This forum should be about information and contribution from members and we hope that you could also do so, or rather not post at all. Otherwise if you continue with your strange behavior then it is obvious that you consider this forum a joke and are quite simply a troll hiding behind a keyboard.
