Visa back log.... How long have you been waiting?

    We had an email from our advisor stating visas that have been back logged will be dealt with in date order. Just wondered how long you've all been waiting. We submitted ours 10th January 2014 along with all our police checks and medicals. Hope we aren't waiting to much longer :'(

    Yes we used an agent which has been fab, this is just out of their hands now. We were told in December 2013 that we should have our visa between 6-9 weeks. We sold our house and put everything in storage with the shipping company. Surely we should be next. But heard the back log is still huge x

    There are MANY different visas. Some take days, some can take over a decade! There are many people who have been and still are waiting for visas who would love for only three months wait.

    there isnt a max time frame they can give you. ive spoken to someone who submitted everything november 2013 and still nothing. Looks like theres a lot of people waiting. feeling a little more reassured that their doing it in date order :)

    Glad I haven't frontloaded medicals or Pc's then!! Sounds like thats a big risk lots of people take!:eek:

    One visa I applied for you had to front load. It took 18 months for the visa to be issued. They had all run out so needed redoing. :-/

    And that was only a temp visa!

    We fronted loaded everything on 4th Feb but have heard nothing yet only that from January there would be a go slow for all 190 till 1st july! ! Someone on another forum rang immigration yesterday and was told they hope to clear most visas lodged up until February by second week in July , but I will believe it when I see it as they never changed the 3 month process for a 190 visa on their Web site once even though they knew it was going to take months !!!! Anyway we all been waiting this long hopefully our wait will be over next week fingers crossed. Good luck to everyone

    Hi all

     

    We have applied for a 190 on 20/12/13... And due to the back log are still waiting :( I'm guessing due to the back log things are going to take a long time for everyone. We had planned to move the end of September, so I guess that's still achievable.

     

    Good luck

    Hi don't lose hope we got our 489 visa granted today we submitted our police and medical details at the start of march but because my husband worked in a war torn country we were told to expect long delays but today they came. Will keep my fingers crossed for you. All the best Jayne and family x
