    Happy Days, I have just been given the golden email - granted my PR with no required documents needed. So crazy happy right now!. I received an email from the department so I'm guessing even my MA doesn't yet know as they are QLD based. This page has been awesome thanks to everyone for the support and banter. I will keep checking often it's a great family. Time for that Moet champagne

    Good Afternoon, I have been a silent but a regular reader of this forum,, Today I have a reason to share my words with all of you. After 7 years of struggle through 457 I am pleased to Announce atleast I relifed from it. I have not heard from my MA yet but my immi status has been changed from received to finalise. I had applied 457 in 2012 on first attempt it got rufused over a banana reason which I had won through MRT that time in 2014.. My profession got removed from Immigration list after that so finally my employer agreed to sponsor me for PR through arrangements of grandfathering system. I was a boy when I came to Australia with one dream and hopes of bright future and now I become man in past 10 years, All my hopes and thoughts got rust and dust on them due to changes in immigration law every time I was closed. But today i believe I can finally say from past 10 years this is the day I feel I am relaxed . Here is my time line Applied 186 TRT Nomination and visa applied 15 of March 2018 grant date 19/01/2019 direct grant no documents were asked. Pre-press trade worker HR Country and 1 person only. So stay there hang on one day your dreams will become true. I know the pain and stress of wait but trust me at the end it will be over . May God Bless you all. Wishing you guys best of luck,

    Guys! It HAPPENED! I just got my PR granted. Nearly 20 months of waiting. It really hasn't sunk in yet. This has been BY FAR the most expensive, stressful, rollercoaster journey of my life. My case was quite complicated and there were many hurdles but I did it! If any of you need an MA i can't recommend Carmen & Associates enough. They have always gone above and beyond for me and were just excellent. I have spent the last hour on calls to friends and family and I cannot wait to celebrate with everyone. NO work has been done since 3.30 Thanks to everyone on this forum for all of your support, advice and laughs over the many many months. Just know- if you have a complicated case, small business turnover and high-risk occupation and been waiting FOREVER-- there is hope! Here's hoping the 2-year-old bottle of Dom Perignon has aged well! Thanks again guys and all the best! x

    Hi all, Happy to announce that I got the golden email today! You can see my signature for my whole timeline. Would like to thank everyone in the website for being very supportive. It was really encouraging to check this website everyday to see updates and grants. I did not use MA but I can see the benefit of having one. It really depends on your situation. Reminder to everyone that once you apply for PR, you are eligible for Medicare! This saved me a lot of money! My advice to all is to keep calm and try not to check immiaccount everyday. Your time will come! Will visit once in a while! good luck all!
