    CO contact timeline

    Hi all. Just wondering if there's a cut-off point for when a CO contacts you for the first time? Im on 32 days and wondering if when I get passed (i.e.) 40, I can start chilling the champagne... or could they possibly contact me later than that? Im going for Direct Grant, everything uploaded when payment made, so hoping I won't get assigned one and the golden ticket will come within 90 days! Thanks!

    189/190 Visas from Nov-Dec 2017

    I had CO contact today after 126 days asking for Meds, even though we uploaded them on same day as Lodgement back on March 20th!! Very frustrating but cant change it now, they have been resent today. How long does everyone thing it will take CO to respond / Grant visa? Thanks, much appreciated!

    Yeh, have looked tonight also, and agree. Im on 32 so fingers are crossed get over the 40-50 day count without an email! I understand there's no set procedure, but was just after some advice off people that have been through it. Thanks for your reply!

    No. I am hoping that they'll look at it around 5 weeks, and send direct grant in another 8 with no contact. Having looked further, lots of comments on this forum and others indicating approx 5 weeks contact date if you're going to get one assigned.

    So mine timeframe is 8-11 months, but as i say, hoping for direct grant. From research, lots saying if they need to contact you, it will be in first 5 weeks. Hoping thats the case, we're almost at that point.

    189 processing times

    Lodged our Visa's on March 20th. As soon as we received the invite from NSW on Mar 2nd, we did Police checks and Medicals, so by the time they approved our application and we lodged, we had everything ready to upload. Really hoping we don't get assigned a CO and get a quick grant!

    Pearson PTE Test taken yesterday - feedback

    Hi. So I had my IELTS with 8.5 overall so superior, but lost out on 10 points on EOI as I had 8.5/8/8/7.5 ? Is PTE the same, do you need a certain score in all to get full 20 marks on EOI? Thanks guys

    I am just about to pass my masters in marketing and am looking for state sponsorship under the Public Relations Professional... I am told I will have to get my qualifications assessed by Vetassess but worried about what this includes?? Any advice is very welcome! :unsure: Also, with 9 years experience, do you think states will sponsor me before I have officially passed my masters (got month left)? Want to go to SA nor WA and both have sponsorships available now for PR specialists - and would like to get everything in before July1st, cos I think that will change everything. Thanks all, much appreciated x x x:v_SPIN:

    New Consolidated Skilled Occupations List

    So the only list I can find released is Victoria, nothing else as of yet. You'd think they'd make sure that al the lists were up today ready to go live today, even if it is the weekend! Especially knowing that loads of people would have been waiting for today!! x

    Possible Visa Problem??

    Hi. Just got my skills through under Marketing Specialist which i've done for 14 years. However, just handed my notice in last month and finish in June to go freelance PR agent and graphic designer. So here's my dilemma!!! We dont know when we can put in for our visa as it depends when Marketing pops up on a states list.... if this is for example the end of the year.... am I going to have issues with immigration as I wont have any recent payslips (cos self employed) and also, because my day to day job is different to the 'Marketing Specialst' role that I passed the skills with? sorry... hope it makes sense.... advise appreciated! x
