Hi this thread has gone a bit quiet perhaps i'm the only April applicant left who hasn't got a visa or co. If so I will write to my self.....

I've been hassarsing my agent and they keep telling me it's no use calling the immigration people as they wont give difinitive answers ie. when will my application be next in line to be assesesed. What a bummer!!
I'm no good at waiting and if I spend any more time on the internet checking out various oz web sites them my OH will kill me.
COME ON CO's where are you

Hi guys!

We're here too! We applied 02/04 and NOTHING! Over 6 months.

DH's MEDS are not cleared, yet. But we think that will happen for sure by the end of the week.....I'm thinking TOMORROW.

Then we're ready for VISA! COME ON COS!!!

Karma sent to you Charlene - I can't get any more to Welsh Jeff - can anyone else send him some karma?

Hi Guys,

We are here too!!!!

I think they are just trying to make it extra special for us and are hanging off to give us a nice crimbo pressie!! or pre-crimbo pressie hopefully

Now playing the waiting game with the meds had them done 3rd October. We do have a CO who requested further information so now all of that is sent in once the meds arrive they should have everything they need now . For many of you they may already have all of the information needed??

We did not go through an agent hence why we got the request for further info.

How many of you keep on saying Im not logging in today and then before you know it ........ yes ...you are typing in your TRN

Chins Up - hopefully wont be long now.

Chris and Wez - Do you know when your MEDS arrived? There's a new sticky thread that has the HOC processing times email. Did you know that exists?

My husband's MED arrived at HOC on 24 September. The latest email stated they are working on 22 September. His had not cleared, yet....it's 20 days since they arrived at HOC


We did not go through an agent hence why we got the request for further info.
What information has your CO asked? I don't know that it necessarily follows that you'll be requested more info because you didn't go through an agent.

How many of you keep on saying Im not logging in today and then before you know it ........ yes ...you are typing in your TRN

Chins Up - hopefully wont be long now.

I only look 1x each morning. Lately it's been to see if DH's MEDS have cleared!

Another April applicant who has also heard nothing. Agent inquired about status two weeks ago with DIMA and got nowhere.

Did my meds in mid-May, I'm sorry I did it so early now. At the time, things seemed to be processing a lot faster, so thought it would be okay, but now, it doesn't seem to be the case (although it looks like a lot of people who applied after me are already being approved!)

Default Re: April 2008 Applicants

I have a theory. I know you've heard many of these before...

My theory is that certain agents are assigned to certain parts of the month. The theory also goes that there are more applicants at the beginning of the month - so those who applied early in the month are processed last....because the numbers are greater.

I've seen a lot of people from the middle of the month get processed first. Then end of the month followed by the first part of the month.

Just a theory....

Great news Sharkiebites sounds like life is all working out for you and its good to hear from people who are there and living their dream

Tiger just tracked meds received by HOC on 10th October so think it is around 3 weeks will have to wait now.

Think you could be right re agent thing it may not eliminate the fact that you may still be asked for further info I just assumed that because we did it ourselves there was maybe more of a chance of us missing things??

Anyway further info was full birth certificates we had abbreviated ones, and some further information re my husbands work experience and as a 176 evidence of sponsorship was needed.

It will be a relief to you when meds clear!!!! Hope soon now.

Wendy
