    I can't seem to find a spreadsheet with the 186 visa timelines. Does anyone know how to find it? Our application was acknowledged on 13th August....so anxious with this long wait! I see there are others from August also waiting, hope it's not long to go.

    e-visitor visa

    My parents are coming to visit in December and I wanted to apply for the e-visa for them. Just realized that I need to set up an Immi account. I wonder if I could use my usual/old account that I used to apply for my visa or should I set up a different account. They mention "you need to be out of Australia to apply for this visa". Technically I'm here but would be applying for my parents who are overseas. Hope I don't get into trouble, but my parents are too worried about doing it themselves and getting things wrong! Anyone done it this way?

    Can you travel while waiting for PR

    Thanks Maggie May. Our 457 expires in Nov 2017, in that case there would be no problem to travel if the PR comes through while we are away from Australia.
  11. My husband's company will be submitting the application for Visa 186 (from 457) before the end of the month. We were planning on taking a short holiday outside Australia, at the end of August, but I don't know if are actually allowed to travel while waiting for the visa to come through. Any problem with that, or what if the visa is granted while we are away? Thanks

    Medical Examination - What blood tests?

    Thanks Rammygirl. The Immigration site just mentions blood test for HIV, nothing else. it would be for the 186 Employer Nomination, we have been in Australia a few years already, and just visited Europe a few months ago. No piercing or tattoos either... I was just wondering if it included cholesterol and blood sugar and things like that.
