What agreement? What terms are DIAC violating? Please state ur sources before making any complaint.
U should remember, DIAC is part of govt. A body, with the approval of lower and upper house, that can create any law they want to protect their citizens, just like other countries government.
I do hope u read the rules before applying about the application fees and prospective changes concerning our applications. Application fees in most cases are non-refundable and i haven't yet read any regulation that our application are precluded from the efffect of changes in any future.
It is nobody fault but ourselves if we do not understand the oz immi regulations before submitting our visa applications.

I just worked it out, the processing of Visa's is going to take another year because DIAC is too busy answering the 10,000 PLE's they get every day and don't have the time to look at visa application files.

I wouldn't be surprised if that has something to do with it. Bound to slow things down, but people just don't seem to appreciate that, do they?

George,

Have they said/hinted anything about changing CSL list this July/Aug. Cos I already have a CO and all my docs have been met. In case they change the CSL again I would not be granted VISA.

Impossible!

There are too many variants : number of applicant's, workload, complexity of cases, number of SS applicants constantly growing to mention just a few.... sorry - if only it were that simple..

I found this on the BEUpdate.co.uk site and it may be that the person who posted this might have had some data to support such a claim. The trend also gives us an opportunity to sneak in our PCC and medicals at the right time before the CO is assigned.

BE Update is just run by ordinary posters and thus the data there is just supplied by a very small part of the total number of applicants. They would not have access to and DIAC data that isn't available anywhere else.

Default How long after Medicals Finalised?

Hi

I am 175 CSL MODL applicant.

I have following questions.

1. CO asked for medicals & PCC. Does it mean that all other papers attached to the application are all fine? & there is no requirement other then medical & PCC?

2. How long it will take to grant the visa after medical is finalised?

3. What exactly happens after you see your online status "Medical fnalised"?

Kindly reply ..

Eva.

eva-usa,

Better option will be to change the question/Thread to ..please share your experience..

It will coz the Moderators also less work as they need to clarify in many of these threads that "no one knows.."

Just a thot..
