  1. Hi, I have got a PR and have moved to Sydney on a permanent basis. My family will be joining me by August or so. We are a family of 4. 2 kids of 4.5 years and 3 years old. I know that as new migrants we are not allowed benefits for the first 2 years. But I know I had read somewhere that we might be eligible for some benefits for which we do not have to wait for 2 years. Can anyone of the senior members please help me with the information? Since I have 2 kids and my wife will not be working, what benefits can I get considering that I am the only earning member? Thanks. Cheers, ​jbb

    Thanks colin!! I am a relieved person today.....yeah team 33 was on a roll today....granted visas to 3 people...all of them had CO assigned on 25th Oct....I understand how feel Colin.....but cheer up.....I guess it is more of a formality in your case.....once your meds are cleared....I guess you will get your visa in 2-3 days max......have some more patience and hang in there....thanks for all the support and guidance you have provided to me and other members of this forum!! All the best with your application!!

    Thank you ozfever!! I think AK is cool....she did not bother me or my agent at all...she just sent email 3 times since the time she was allocated my case....one is the email she sent informing us that she is the CO processing my application....second....she replied back acknowledging that she had received the documents which she had requested to be resent via email.....third......she wrote to inform us that I have got the visa granted....:biggrin::wink: I do not know if she did the job verification from all the applicants she handles....I feel the only reason she might have done verification is because I had claimed 8 yrs of exp which gave me 15 points for work exp....when I had done my skill evaluation from ACS,...that time I had not got my skills assessed from my current company since I had just joined and was just 2-3 months old only.....later at the time of visa application I was almost 1 year old in my current company....and therefore had to submit reference letter signed by my colleague...as I did not want to discuss about this with my HR...since I was barely one year old in the company.....so I feel they may have just verified to confirm if I actually am eligible for the extra 5 points which I had claimed in my application or not....also apart from that I was also awaiting PCC from another country where I had spent more than 12 months....I guess I might have got the visa much earlier say by Nov 20 or so but since I did not have the PCC in my hand....therefore it took a little bit longer....i submitted my PCC on 28th Nov and got the visa on 3rd Dec...nonetheless I am very happy that its over and now I have a PR . Good luck with your application.....

    Thanks Naseefoz! I have seen one of the forum members get a CO assigned and after 2 days the visa has been granted. So it is quite possible that your application might already have been allocated to a CO and he is already processing it. It is possible that the only communication you receive from the CO is that you have been granted the visa!! :biggrin::wink: So do not get disheartened!!! Good luck with your application.....

    Thank you finnijo!! Even I had not informed my HR about my visa application....they came to know about it when DIAC sent them the email.....my HR was pissed off hearing about this....but as you can see that they did not give any false information and validated the email which DIAC had sent them. Good luck with your application!

    Thank you newwave!! Yes DIAC had emailed my current company the documents I had sent them to validate. I had also received call from the Australian Embassy from New Delhi and was asked employee code....date of joining, last date...designation from my previous company as well as current company. I do not know if they did any verification from my previous company or not though..... My CO was AK from team 33. All the best with your application!!

    thanks for your good wishes ztjt2003, but sadly though I still have not received any email yet :mad::em4600: yeah i know many of our friends on this forum have her as the CO.....I hope we all get the grant soon...i hope perhaps next week there may be some good news from someone of us. :wink: so you are planning to go to which city and when? btw did the CO do any job verification for you?

    wowwww that is awesome news ztj2003...... actually i am not able to believe it that you got the visa in just 2 days of being assigned a CO......did the CO even inform you that she is now processing your case? Or the only communication she sent you was the visa grant letter.:biggrin: BTW, my CO is also AK, so I just hope she is kind enough on me too and showers her blessings :wink:
