    Hi Leah, did calling make any difference to the speed they are processing you're visa though? When I called a very unhelpful lady said it says it is pending- after being on hold for an hour!!!!

    I don't think a drink driving offense will matter?! Mine is taking ages too! They requested payslips and now after reading others' posts I'm worried I haven't sent tax slips etc! Just want it granted

    189 visa lodged May 2015

    Hi All, when you get your case officer do you receive an email or do we need to be checking the immiacount all the time? I was going to wait for a case officer before going to book my medical...should I just book the medical? I lodged my Visa beginning of June- I have heard absolutely nothing other than the bridging visas

    Hi Guys, Starting this thread so anyone that is in the same boat can share how they are getting on. I have lodged mine. I haven't had my medical yet. Anyone else end of May, beginning of June want to share where they are up to??

    Ok in the mean time I am between jobs. I will wait until my 90 days is almost up in whoch I need to get a new sponsor before panicking. I will be so happy once all the visa rubbish is over

    Ok great thank you! I read somewhere that you were allowed to stay and live and could only work by the same rules as your current visa eg for the same sponsor. But also understood it that you didn't have to do exactly as your current visa stipulated eg didn't have to work?

    I have 90 days before having to find a new sponsor, due to mental health reasons I had to leave my current job. I have 90 days to find a new sponsor or leave. I was hoping that I may be granted a new visa in that time (ha ha not going to happen). It is ridiculous as if I get a new sponsor now it would only be for a few months to cover me "legally" as after that I would want to quit... due to my mental health being in full time veterinary work. How long in general do the visas take to be granted? My other option is applying for a partner visa but I would prefer the 189 as it is a permanent visa and is much cheaper.

    Since people have been talking about no more places they still seem to have had more invitations...I really hope they are doing invites as if I have to wait until June then my 90 days will likely be up on my 457 visa that I need to find a new sponsor eek.
