  1. G'day mate! Sorry to say that you were wrong. The fact that I'm a PR now proved my points below: Years of experience: all the years you have spent on your occupation Years which are qualify for points (only if you need points!): all the years after your skill level met date. Personally, I think Australia Government is pretty transparent on the required information for each VISA class. MA is just a waste of money if you are able to crawl through all the publicly published documents of the Government (I must admit that it's not easy though, lots of documents spread amongst different Government department websites and locations...). And if you are going to allow some people/organisations to be the middle-men (MA) of probably one of the biggest decisions in your life, make sure you choose the right one. Cheers!

    Well, I've just logged in to my ImmiAccount after a week. To my surprise, the status changed to "Finalised" just today, and "Granted" status for each applicant! I haven't received the grant letter emails though, but guess I'll receive them soon :biglaugh:, below is my full time-line: ENS 186 Direct Entry (just briefly here in Australia on 457 Visa) Nomination: 14/05 Application: 24/05 Nomination approval: 12/08 CO asked for Medical: 24/09, 13/10 Medical sent VISA granted: 17/10 Team 5 VIC Cheers :laugh:

    My application was lodged on 24/05 CO asked for medical in 24/09. I didn't have the medical referral letters until 26/09 due to some issues with the system. Had to email the department for that. Just did my medicals yesterday. Hopefully I'll hear some good news in the next 2 weeks.

    Congrats kmchu. The soonest date I could book for my health examination is Wednesday next week. That's the last piece of documents I need to submit. Keeping my fingers cross.

    Hi kmchu, My company lodged my nomination for me, no MA, then I did my application myself a week later. So I'm not surprise when my nomination approval came first. I actually try to keep myself to think that I'll probably need to wait for 6 months, so that I would be able to go through the waiting period. It helps a little

    Dropped team 5 an email (actually 2) regarding the problem with health link not available. Haven't received any reply in 2 days. Looks like they have their own way to prioritize cases and act accordingly. My case sure is not in the upper part of that list... How they do that is a "secret" My nomination was approved in less than 2 months. I'm coming close to the 4 month mark on my Visa application. Waiting for reply on the health link. I guessed the problem was because I input the old HAP ID I've got when I submitted my application. After the that I couldn't pre-arrange health examinations nor have the health link in my immiaccount now. -------- Edited: while writing this, I received an email from NSW processing center with the new HAP ID in it. Always get good news when I tried to share my experience here

    Got something new today. Just received an email from CO (Team 5, VIC) requesting health examinations. Then I tried to log in to my Application, couldn't see any "Organise your Health Examinations" link as mentioned in the requests. Then I replied to her email, stating that I couldn't find the links. Then I received an automation reply to my reply (sorry for confusing you ) from Team 5, which had a section saying that Current Issues-HAP LINK and it said that if "Organise your Health Examinations" links were not displayed then I need to drop an email to them with subject line saying that “Organise your health link is not available”, Should I send them another email according to the guidance in their automation email? Any advises would be really appreciate

    My application went in on 22/05. Nomination was approved on 12/08. Haven't heard anything new since then. Personally I think they prefer application without dependents. I included my wife and my toddler in my application. Does anyone with recent approval mind sharing if any dependents were included in their application? Thanks guys!

    To correct, my nomination went in on 14/05 not 12/05, Nomination was approved on 12/08. Today is 12/09, currently in my 5th week after nomination approval... No updates so far. Anyway, I'm keeping myself busy with lots of works so the waiting time is passing by less painful to me

    My nomination went in on 12/05 My visa went in 10 days later, 22/05 I don't know which center is processing my visa, as the last update date on my application is still the date I submitted it. My nomination approval email was sent out by VIC. I know applications have different time lines. But it's a little frustrated knowing that they process some later applications quicker. We are all "buying" their processing service at the same price, right?
