    Skillselect ENS 186 Timeline

    Hi all, me again, thought I'd update with info we (finally) received today from our MA as I haven't seen any info on this elsewhere and I'm sure there are others in the same boat. We were advised to complete a new My Health Declaration form using the same Immi account that we completed our original My Health Declaration form through. This time the form only needed to have the primary applicant and our baby on it. The primary applicant doesn't need to redo a medical. Once the HAP ID was generated for our baby booking the medical for her was straightforward.
  2. Our agent has come back to us about this so thought I'd share on here as I couldn't find any information about it anywhere and I'm sure someone else out there is in the same boat. We just needed to submit a new My Health Declaration form through the same Immi account that we submitted the original My Health Declarations form through. This one only had the primary applicant (my husband) and our baby on it. We just don't use the new HAP ID generated for my husband and he doesn't need to go redo any medicals. Our baby who was born in July this year has only been called for a medical with no blood tests or chest xray required at this stage which is a relief. Getting excited now. At this rate we might get our visa application in before Xmas :jiggy:
  3. We've been getting paperwork together for our ENS 186 application for almost a year now. At first we were aiming for making a 189 application however delays with the skills assessment meant we passed the two year mark of working with our sponsor so decided to change to making a 186 application. We did medicals for my partner and I and his two non-dependent children who live outside of Australia, but I didn't do the chest xray as I was pregnant at the time. Our daughter was born in July and I completed my chest xray shortly afterwards. We have gotten her passport and added her to our 457 visa so we're now finally at a point where submission of our 186 application is near. Our problem is that we're not sure how to go about getting a HAP ID for her so she can do a medical. The application on our Immi account that we got our HAP IDs through has already been submitted for the rest of us to get our HAP ID's and I cannot see anywhere that this can be edited so that our baby can be added. Do we create a new Immi account just for her? Or just create a new application under our current immi account and include my husband as the primary applicant? If we did that would my husband (or possibly all of us) then have to redo his(our) medical(s)? Or should we just submit the application and wait for the CO to request her to do a medical? Apologies for all the questions, haven't been able to find any information online relevant to our situation and our agent is proving difficult to get an answer out of on this.

    New baby visa issue

    We've just gone through this. You need to get the Australian Birth Cert issued (form should have been given to you in the hospital) and then use that to get British passport for the baby. Once you have those you can apply for bub to be added to your 457 visa. Once the completed application is submitted it happens very quickly - only took 4 working days for us. It's important to get it sorted as if you leave the country with bub without adding them to the visa they may have issues getting back in.

    Visa 189, Medicals and baby on the way?

    Just on the birth cert/passport side of things, our baby's (Irish) passport was with us within 3 weeks of us applying. It took 10 days for us to get birth cert. A friend of mine from the UK who also had baby in July had to wait a month for the passport to reach her. I think your 6-8 week time allowance for getting the passport is quite realistic as it allows for a week or so of being completely immersed in the newness of your baby before getting moving with paperwork. We live in regional WA so perhaps if you're in a major city things will move quicker. Good news is that once we submitted paperwork to Dept of Immigration to get our daughter added to our 457 visa that was completed in four working days, and our friend from the UK had her daughter added within 48 hours.

    Hi Everyone, Have been keeping an eye on this thread for a while now and thought I'd check in. We're getting close to finally being able to make our application for 186 under the Temporary Residence Transition Stream, just waiting for my husbands employer to submit their nomination of him. Our medicals are scheduled for next week, and all other paperwork is with an agent waiting for submission. It has been such a slow process for us, between getting police clearances from numerous countries and transcripts/parchments from 4 different Unis, it has been incredibly frustrating. We had hoped to go Direct Entry but getting my husbands qualifications recognised by Engineers Australia has taken so long (and still not finalised) we can now go the Transition Stream as we hit the 2 years of being sponsored on 10th May. Our application is complicated by my husband having two children from a previous relationship and for some strange reason they had to do medicals despite them not being included on the application. Although I suppose it makes sense just in case anything ever happens to their Mom that means we need to have custody of them. I am pregnant, due mid July, another complication there. So I will be very surprised if we get a decision in 2014! Fingers crossed I'm wrong

    My brother lives there...he shares a house with three others and gets a rent contribution from his work to make the cost of living more affordable. If you're prepared to share accom with others then that is the way to go.
