Student Dependent Visa Subclass 573

Recommended Posts

There is nothing such as first come first serve. They do it very randomly and I heard decision date differs from case to case. Well if you are lucky enough then you might get to hear something good soon.

Hey everoyone,

 

I got mail from my CO stating that currently they r processing the application before 16 Sept 2013 and the file for oct r only allocated to the CO.  The CO said that my application will be processed in one month as they give priority to Students visa first due to lots of application being lodged for student visa.

Hi Roshan

 

I applied through a Consultancy, n they rec mail from the CO.  Country code is +91.  The number of DIAC is 011-412210000, which i m dialing directly.  U r from nepal so u might have 2 dial 091-011-412210000. Try 2 remove the 0 after 91 if unsuccessful.  After dialing this number u will hear the welcome msg.  As soon as u hear the msg, dial 1 and 2 in the dialpad quickly, so it will take u directly to the Customer Support Executive extn.  It will take a while 2 reach but u will definitely reach it.  It can take upto 25 min depending upon the cue.  After dialing 12, there will be dialer tune change, n once u r call is about 2 connect u will hear change in dialer tune and it will beep..beep continuously, n then u can talk with CSE.

 

N 1 more thing, DIAC never assess applications randomly.  They r done in a date lodged listing wise, and higher priority is given 2 student and visitor visa than other visas.

Hey roshan,

 

Just try 2 call up the High Comm., u must have got a CO assigned.  I also called up myself when i came 2 knew that i have CO assigned.  My consultant got mail 5 days later.  If u have applied through agent, then ask them if they have rec mail or not, or ask them 2 make an inquiry.  U will have 2 take all the initiatives.  Bst of luck.

Today I got following mail from high commission...

 

Dear Client ,

Thank you for contacting the Department of Immigration & Border Protection.

We appreciate that processing of your application has extended beyond the service standard of 14 weeks.  We apologise for the inconvenience and difficulty that you are experiencing as a result of the time being taken to finalise your application.  The following information may assist you to understand the reasons for the delay.  The Australian High Commission in New Delhi has been receiving a significantly higher volume of applications than is usual over the last few weeks.  This has been impacting on the processing times as case officers work to get through these cases.

Applications for student dependants, including your case, have been particularly affected as priority must be given to applications for students with impending commencement dates.  We are currently processing student dependant applications that were lodged towards end of September and October.

Department  will contact you if further information required or when a decision made on the application.

hi Roshan,

 

I have also rec the same email, but it is from my CO.  U must have also got a CO assigned.  But in my email ... it was written that We are currently processing student dependant applications that were lodged before 16 september.

 

So they r now moving with sept and oct applications.
