    Some partial good news... Nomination has been approved on 22 December 2018 while we were on holiday!! Hopefully we close getting the GOLDEN email, as I read this forum I presume the Nomination is the big one to get through, hope it is true. :-) It seems that the Accountant Occupation has been struggling lately with high points (80-85) on the 189 to get nominated, getting this far with a nomination approved seems positive.

    @Kashif.IqbalI can completely understand what you going through and i am pretty sure most of our forum members can connect with you but my friend, we all try to find a solution to get out of this instead worrying too much of outcome which is not in our hands because you can only do so much once you have submitted application i sincerely suggest just forget about it and even forget about outcome. infact you and me are in same ship because in november 18 i was in your situation i was too much worried got in to depression and anxiety i went to see doctor, obviously doctor suggested that not to worry about it and gave some depression tablets to tell you truth after i took tablets i was like WTF???? i was like nahh man.. i got to do something so below are the things i did which helped me and still going strong. 1) I came to understand once i submitted documents, i simply "MUST" wait till i get reply from immi. 2) i am completely prepared for worst outcome (Rejection) (FYI - i am in Australia since 10yrs) 3) I have stopped worrying about people back at home,friends,family who have expectations that i would be successful/settle in Australia, because end of the day it is my life i do not need to worry about other people expectations because it's simply an unwanted burden i'll be carrying. 4) i have joined in new gym , practicing meditation. 5) i have started to socialize more than i used to , meeting new people ( check out MEETUP APP) 6) well this one most of our forum friends wont agree but i stopped visiting this forum too once in a week or 2. (that's another reason i am replying to you so late) 7) i am living in the "PRESENT MOMENT" remember not yesterday not tomorrow not today in afternoon " just now in present" whether am i happy or not that's all it matters. Overall i am doing what ever i can to live my life instead of thinking or worrying about visa outcome and more over i came to understand this P.R is just one small tiny part of my life (even though i spent 10years of my life in australia ) i got my whole life infront of me , with the life experience i had in Australia i have learned to be resilient in difficult situation which i am pretty sure more to come in my life. Bro. just don't worry anymore LIVE YOUR LIFE- ENJOY EVERY MOMENT - LAUGH OUT LOUD - JUST BE THERE.

    You seemed to have spelled "right" wrong, or do you confuse them easily? In fact, only 2hrs ago: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-46789601

    ABSOLUTELY! I firmly believe that 90% of your visa is approved once you get that nomination part over with- the rest is protocol and a walk in the park. Judging from your timeline you may not even be requested further documentation! Have you filled in form 80? I did it JUST to be safe! YOUR GOLDEN EMAIL AWAITS (buy a bottle of champagne )

    The UK state pension anomaly is on the Australian negotiating document (posted some months ago on here) as one of the key demands to be resolved if the UK wants a post-Brexit trade deal.

    IELTS valid in the 3 years before you applied for the visa, so it depends on when you applied https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/meeting-our-requirements/english-language/competent-english

    12 years in Aus for us yesterday - still finding things to do in Perth that neither involve BBQ's or the Beach and my kids didn't leave home at 15 (said tongue in cheek).

    YAY Golden email for us today! No questions asked - AFP were current but UK police check expired for 1 month and Medicals expired 27/12. Company used MA for nomination but we did the application ourselves. See signature for timeline. All the best for those who are still waiting..no doubt we will meet again on the citizenship timeline!

    i think anglo's tend to believe that if you lose your rag then you lose the argument. With respect, the Brits are a different bread to our continental neighbours.

    Just clarified with MA and we dont need to get home country PCC if we have not stayed more than 2 months in total since PCC is expired. Aus PCC is still required if expired but shall wait for immi to request for it. Hope for best.

    The only way to know if your nomination has been approved is to ask your employer. This is a "contract" between the company and the immigration department, that's why you have no way to see the outcome of this. If your company used a MA, just ask them. there is no other way.

    I went the opposite direction - married after I arrived and was working on a 457 visa. Applied for PR on my previous name since that's the name still on my Canadian passport. When I applied for citizenship, I need to submit the application still in my previous name but they noted in the system my new married name and the citizenship certificate is in my married name.

    I think it's culture. The Australian people seem to have different views than the Americans. Anyone in the UK who suggests that we should look after own people such as the homeless before illegal immigrants are branded as racists by many.

    So sad...... He said: "My life is slipping away and I can feel it and I should. I'm 75 and I'm a damn sight nearer the end than I am the beginning. "But it doesn't frighten me - it's an adventure and it's quite interesting to see myself slipping away, as bits slip off and leave me, talents leave and attributes leave. "It's as if I'm being prepared for something, some other adventure, which is over the hill. I've got all this stuff to lose first, and then I'll be at the shadowy side of the hill doing the next episode in the spirit world." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-46747322

    That's a really nice way of looking at it don't you think? I'm on the downhill ride too with a not very good heart but it certainly doesn't make me feel depressed about life. On the whole life and what is left of it is wonderful. I don't fear death but I do hope it is quick.

    You go with a healthy bank balance and then when your course is finished you leave much poorer. Simples. You don't try and work illegally because that's a sure way to find your bum on a plane on your way out before your course finishes.
