    :swoon: Hi there,

    We sent our application for our 136 visa back in August, the 3rd, and we havent had any news yet? i know there is a massive delay at the minute as they have had more applications with the changes that came in. So we were just wondering who has sent theres around the same time aand if anyones had any news yet?

    THIS WAITING IS AWFUL!!!!!!:wacko:

     

    Thanks xxxx

    Hi

     

    Our application was lodged on 09/07/07, money was taken out approx. 6 weeks later, we are also 136 but i don't know if it makes any difference which visa your applying for or not.

     

    Seems like alot of people on here sent them off at a similar time, i think everyones story is the same ...........waiting. Its awful isn't it?

    Hi there,

     

    God - it's awful isn't it? I check every Tuesday to see what date they are receipting, and it's been stuck on the 23rd July for the last three weeks. We sent ours on the 11th August (we're also on a 136), and it's starting to drive me potty.:arghh:

     

    Biting my nails along with you...........

    We posted ours too - International Signed-For, for what it was worth - I've managed to establish that Royal Mail have handed it over to the international agent, but that's as far as I can trace it. After all the work it took to pull the paperwork together, I'm lying awake at nights worrying that it hasn't got there and will all need doing again.............

    We used Interparcel rather than Royal Mail. You have a tracking number and can track your parcel all the way to signing. Package cost was £20.00, collected from your house > Adelaide Business Centre via Melbourne.

     

    We thought about taking some of my OH tools accross by the same method - big parcel costs around £90 - £120, well worth it as it only takes about 5 working days to arrive.

    Hope that is of some help.

    Our application (136) was received on the 23rd July. We had an e mail on 10th September confirming the receipt of the application and that the money had been taken. We had posted ours and thought it might not have got there but it did. Now waiting for the validity checks and acknowledgement which they said should be 12 weeks from the date of the e mail.

    Ours has been 13 weeks and still no acknowledgement, I have checked the ASPC today and they are acknowledging 28 June, last week it was the 27 June so it has taken them 1 week to acknowledge 1 days worth of visas, all I can say is there must be a lot of visa's at the moment or they are having a lot of tea breaks!!!!

    Hi

     

    We sent our visa application (136 MODL) at the end of June, the timeline should be below. We received a case reference number last week along with a lovely letter telling us how we will have quite a time delay in receiving a case officer and medicals being requested due to a big influx of visa applications!! When we checked the site, they are currently allocating officers to december applications, quite a wait ahead for us it seems!!

     

    Good Luck

    Hi Guys

     

    well I was /am getting quite worried so email agent last night asking the question do we know if they have taken the money. ( She paid by cheque) She checked with bank they said NO!!! so she rang processing centre aited 2 hours on hold and hung up. She re contacted the bank and asked again. This time spoke to a supervisor who advised the money was taken on July 12th. Once again she is hoping this week. She has recieved an acknowledgement for a cilent whom she sent their application off 21/6 and they got their acknowledgemet 24/9/07.

     

    Won't hold my breath thou!!

     

    Happy waiting

    Hi all,

     

    if it helps anyone I got my case file number today, it said there will be a "time lag" before a case officer is appointed, I think time lag means another long wait:arghh:. Its a SIR 495 received in Aus 28/06/07, timeline below

    Wow - now I'm really confused!! Am I missing something here? (it wouldn't be the first time......!!) The ASPC return says that they are processing December '06 - you seem to have been picked up really quickly. Is this something that any of the rest of us can live in hope for, or do you have a particular skill that they are desperate for??? We're also on a 136, but weren't expecting anything like this sort of speed!!

     

    Congrats!! :D

    I wondered the same thing, ours is a skill on the modl, was told to expect a time delay as well, maybe in the next few weeks they will process six months worth of applications! :arghh::arghh::arghh:

    I think Soggy means he has been acknowledged which is the correct date (28 June) for the ASPC. and the December date is when you should get a case officer but I think its moving much faster than that. hope that makes sense.
