    189 visa lodged June 2014

    Just got a direct grant. So excited....strange though - something woke me up an hour before my alarm and I checked my email abd there it was. Unusual for me, a rarity, and very exciting! Heading over at the end of October. Thanks to everyone that posts, waiting has been so hard, and this made it a lot easier. Good luck with your grants and see you in Oz! Nicky

    Go into settings at the top of the page. Then signature settings on left hand bar and you can then add a timeline. Good luck with application

    Great news, seems like there is action for the June applicants which is great. I'm a July applicant so expecting a fair old wait yet. So did you front load form 80 as well as meds and pcc? Nicky

    Fingers crossed. Hard to plan with no idea when it could go through. Never been good at waiting! It's a virtue though, so guess so we're all getting to be virtuous!

    Not sure exactly where in Brisbane, maybe one of the southern districts. When I was in Australia before I visited Brisbane but only for a couple of days. Most of my time was spent living in Sydney, but having lived in London for so long I'm thinking somewhere a bit smaller and near to diving, forests and so on would be good. Bit of a lifestyle change. Hoping to go later this year once my visa is approved I'll rent out my flat and head over. It's nerve wracking waiting, keep thinking I may have filled something in wrong. I haven't completed the form 80 but a couple of people told me not to unless requested. Keep in touch and let m know if you get a CO, I'll do the same. Do you know which district you want to live in?

    Hi, I did complete IELTS test, even though I am English and was educated here. This is because I wanted to get points for superior english which you can get if you score a minimum of 8 in each of the sections of the test. So don't bother is you are form and educated in an english speaking country unless you need the points - it costs about £145 each time you take it. For medical checks and so on, I applied for police check when before I submitted my EOI, but waited for invite before doing my medical. The are only valid for a year. Good luck

    Hi Keighley, Thanks for starting this thread, I was thinking of doing the same. Have been tracking the June 2014 lodge gang and it seems like the visa's are generally taking around 3 months to be granted. I've not been allocated a CO yet....hoping I might get a direct grant, fingers crossed. Plan to move to Brisbane too, work allowing. Very exciting, spent a year on Oz on working holiday visa, a long time ago now, but love the climate, wildlife and people. Fingers crossed. Anyone out there that lodged in July and has a CO allocated already? Nicky

    Hi, Just wondered if you completed form 80 to get your 189 grant? Have front loaded everything else, but prior to teaching I was a freelancer and so had may clients over the years and so unless I can just put that time down as one period of self employed work it would be onerous to fill it out.

    Hi, Congratulations, you must be so pleased I lodged my 189 visa in July, all front loaded except for form 80. Did you upload form 80? I have uploaded lots of proof of my work history and am thinking if I add a CV as well this should suffice. What do you think?

    Hi Rachel, did you have to submit a for 80. Just trying to decide whether I should fill one in and upload it on the off chance? Nicky

    Hi, I'm a secondary science teacher - Biology specialist. I just submitted my 189 application and am about to upload all my documents...but am unsure about form 80! Did anyone on this thread get requested for a form 80? It looks like a lot of grief to fill out so hoping I can get away without completing it. But also don't want to delay my visa being granted. Advice please!:confused:

    Question about AITSL skills assessment for 189

    Congratulations on getting your visa granted. That was a pretty quick turnaround. Not sure mine will be as quick. When are you off?
