    190 Visa -- March 2014 Gang

    Thanks everyone, we have to be in Australia by may 17th 2015 which tells me it was processed May 17th 2014 and has been sitting on somebody's desk until the new allocation for the new financial year was released. So those that have not received theirs it should not be too long as I would say many have already been processed. I'm not too sure on timelines as the wife did most of the sorting out and our agent (Go Matilda) I know we started last august with the IELTS test. Just need to sort out what's going on at AHPRA as its a right mess at the moment with U.K. nurses getting their skills assessed. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

    We tried to do it alone but found it far too complicated and time consuming. We both work and have three young kids and found that with an agent we still had a fair bit of work to do in getting paperwork together etc. so if like us you are unable to spend every minute checking that you are going in the correct direction and filling out forms I would invest in an agent to hold your hand. We've just had had our case officer allocated and are doing our medicals on Friday if we never had an agent we wouldn't be anywhere near that. good luck
