    • My sister got her visa RSMS childcare from NT . Her time frame is 2018  Jan all documents submitted, and got visa last week.  Is some one waiting for same time period for same occupation on VIctoria regional.  Please let me know 
    • So sorry to hear this Tini365. We had a similar situation in September 2018 when we applied. My husbands also came back 'no live trace' for a caution drunk and disorderly also back in 2004. He was 18 at the time. Our MA advised we may be able to have it removed. In the meantime we submitted visa without the AFP. We spoke to police and ACRO in UK, managed to fill out a form to appeal the caution and it was overturned. (In the meantime we ordered a subject access which we were going to put in with our application if we were unable to get it appealed and provide an explanation ) We didn't have any evidence as to why we were removing it he just said young and a mistake and stressed what a massive impact it was having on our visa application.  It took about 3-4 weeks to come back but was worth it to have it now say no trace if possible. Even if it can't be removed don't stress if you can get a subject access explaining what happened and have a note from your MA it should be fine. I hope this helps best of luck.
    • I never used an agent and done it myself. I made a few mistakes along the way but I am not sure I would have necessarily obtained the visa any quicker. Main mistake I made was not realising you can't just submit an EOI and sit back and wait; you have to contact the state and keep an eye on their entry requirements. Other one was thinking it would be pretty straightforward with my Mum living in Adelaide and acting as Family Sponsor but then realising all the 189, 190 and 489 SS get preferential treatment over 489 FS (I ended up getting 489 SS). All in all though I am glad I never used an agent but that's easy for me to say now........everyone has their own different circumstances and reasons for requiring a bit of extra guidance and support I would say.
    • They as usual were unable to do anything other than direct me to an online technical form.

      This has now been filled in and submitted.

      What if they have lost everything and I've been put to the back of the queue. I feel sick!
