We applied for a 173 visa in 6th September 2016. The waiting time then was 12-15 months, currently we are 53 months waiting. We applied off shore... but are currently on shore, so with nobody allowed in why is this taking so long?
I got a processing time update in July 2030 say they had processed up to April 2016, new email today says they have processed up to May 2016.
so it’s moved 1 month in 7 moths... sorry for the rant but just feel disheartened... especially when all my children and grandchildren are here, and we just want to start are life.
For applying this visa , filled out forms must be posted to Perth . So I want to know :
1. Sending copy of form is OK or we must send ( post ) the origin form ? ( I mean can we send scanned form to AU and there it printed and posted ? )
2. Same question is about translated documents . Is it OK to send the pictures ?
