I got this latest reply from ASIO a few days back.

""I refer to your inquiry concerning any security assessment that may be required for this visa application.



The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) is the agency responsible for conducting security assessments. I have contacted ASIO for information about this visa application to check ASIO’s handling of any security assessment associated with the application.



This office can check whether or not ASIO is acting unreasonably or has made a processing error but we are not able to direct ASIO to change the priority of a case, or make the process quicker for a particular applicant.



Where we identify an issue requiring resolution, we liaise with the relevant agencies about the issue.



We will contact you if we require any further information about the case but will not provide any other feedback.



I suggest you maintain contact with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) for information about the status of the visa application.

I can't even predict whether my Security Assessment is still undergoing or accomplished?

Cheers

Hi Mates,

Just a general question. is it possible that DIAC initiates 1st external checks, than they say they are currently doing internal checks and when you inquire after 2-3 months, about current status of internal checks, they reply back that they are waiting for external checks. This happened with me. Is it possible or their support is just replying what so ever they want?

Looking for your take/exp. on it?

This process is hidden and kept secret, nobody can comment but DIAC itself. Most of us have received same sort of replies earlier.

its normal...its their method of keeping your nerves calm...CO told me routine,internal,external and internal[most recent]...its absolutely fine...
but a member gr8leo87 copy pasted a reply from his CO lately...that might be of some interest to u

External checks are done by external agencies, therefore we are unable to
provide a timeframe on the outcome.
Internal checks are checks done within our department and we are therefore
able to provide a estamated timeframe on outcomes.
All internal checks have been completed, we are now waiting on the external
checks.

Yeah,Its the reply to my second email to IGIS.The last that I put was on 10 August.At that time their reply was different and they told me they have received a referral from DIAC.
But the mystery here in this reply is they have written an essay to me but I 'm unable to figure out whether my External Security Checks are over or still pending?

Cheers

  • Case officer was assigned
  • All documents except medicals are met
  • Found out wife was pregnant with our first child on 30 November 2009
  • Received mail from case officer for PCC and Medicals on 1 December 2009
  • Provided documents and decided to postpone medicals until the delivery
  • Our first child arrived on 28 July 2010
  • Got notification to file Change in circumstances on 18 August 2010
  • Uploaded form 1022 on 23 August 2010
  • Given time till 30 October 2010 for submitting additional documents and medicals
  • Uploaded all documents other than medicals on 07 October 2010
  • Got appointment for medicals on 26 October 2010
  • Unable to download 160EH and 26EH, department advised to use 160 and 26 instead
  • Medicals received in Sydney on 01 November 2010
  • Wife’s and kid’s medicals status changed to received and referred on 05 November 2010
  • Sent mail to HOC asking for my medicals status on 10 November 2010

  • Doctor sent the form again and received at HOC on 22 November 2010
  • Medicals status changed to finalised on 29 November 2010.

Few points you might find useful,

My employer is now ready to depute me to Sydney again. So, should be landing there by Jan 2011 or earlier .

All the best to all..
