Sorry if this topic already exists , (I had a look but couldn't find it ) but I thought it would be a good idea to share info like waiting times for sponsorship from the different states and territories , invitation times ( if we ever get one! ) processing times of visas etc . There seem to be quite a few 189 & 190 threads but not to much dedicated to State Sponsored 489.
I will start the ball rolling , my wife and my details are as follows-
TRA hairdressing ( wife )- submitted aug 2011 declined jan 2012 appealed feb 2012 successful June 2012
IELTS Oct 2011 L 8.0 R 6.5 W 7.5 S 9.0 overall band 8.0 (Peterborough)
Retake June 2012 L 7.5 R 7.0 W 6.5 S 9.0 overall band 7.5 (Leeds/Harrogate)
Remark sent 17 July 2012 - Waiting
EOI for 489 , ENS & RSMS Visas successfully submitted 01 July 2012 ( 60 points )
WA 489 State sponsorship submitted 2 July 2012 NOM - Under 90
No further information requested YET,
Waiting like everybody else!
Just thought it would be useful for peace of mind for ourselves and those who follow on this specific visa, and to update as much as possible ( when there is something to update! )
Thanks for reading looking forward to any input
