  • should i call or not? what do you think

    i applied at london ahc nearly 2 years ago, over that time i have sent
    in additional information they have requested and every time i call up
    the number i was given (which has now been shortened to 3 days a week
    11-12) i get the usual thing of, "its being looked at, blah blah blah"
    or "a senior case officer will look at it soon but they have alot of
    other cases too look at they are very busy" yeah right. now then,
    should i call up a demand to speak to somebody else or do you all
    think this could rock the boat, im so frustrated after waiting this
    long when at first i was told it would take an average of 9 months,
    yeah i know, funny isnt it "not". every day i think is this the day,
    looking at emails, checking the post and whatever, im going out of my
    mind as i cant make any plans. in case your wondering ive still not
    been requested my medicals and police checks and i didnt use an
    immigration lawyer, which im now regretting. any help that you might
    give me will be gratefull received. also is it too late for me to use
    an immigration lawyer, i.e. could they help me out at this late
    stage??
    yours,
    mr desperate dan going out of his mind............

    "at first i was told it would take an average of 9 months"

    Who told you so? DIMIA? If so,they should inform you their progress
    after 9 months. If they didn't do so, you should complain it.

    Maybe you can send letter/email to the visa offier who deal with your
    case to complain such case. I guess it works.



    I finished my application for PR (onshore graduate visa) totally by
    myself. it took me 7 months. I admit some of my friends who hired some
    immigration agent can get their PR visa very quickly(the fastest one got
    his visa within 4 weeks, it is really amazing!). But I also knew some of
    my friends who hired some immigration agent got their PR visa after 10
    months or longer time. So, it seems different agents will have different
    service quality. You should be careful to choose the right one if you
    want to hire an agent now.

      By the way, at first I was told by DIMIA that my application can be
      finished within 6 months. But after six months, I got nothing. I wrote a
      letter(plus email) to them to complain it. And I got response from them
      to tell me that application time is extended to 7-8 months due to the
      large amount of applications. And I got my visa granted letter after 6
      months and 20 days of my initial application.

        Wow! 2 years ago, that's awful! I think you are certainly entitled to
        an explanation. You can get a migration agent to check on things for
        you. Sometimes they may have more luck getting answers. It might be
        worth a few hundred $$, I'm surprised you have held in for so long....

          If you applied to London AHC almost two years ago, was your case
          transferred to Adelaide or not? I understand that most London cases
          lodged post May 2001 were transferred to Adelaide some time ago.

          Hiring an agent may not help greatly, but it could help to have
          someone on your side asking questions. Cost should not be much more
          than a few hundred dollars.

          If you have an Australian sponsor, that person (especially if he/she
          is an Australian citizen) should be writing to their Federal MP asking
          him to intervene with DIMIA, especially if there is no specific reason
          for the delay.
