    Ouch that's a while to wait alright... hope it comes through sooner rather than later for you.

    I agree with JetBlast.... think things got a little crazy when they bumped up the minimum points for the 189 and everyone jumped ship to the 190 and 489 for the extra points! JetBlast is that the wait time for state nomination now?

    Looking at moving to the Sunshine Coast where there will hopefully be some work opportunities. Where are you looking at? Yeah the uncertainty is a nightmare, I've tried planning as much as possible but reading on lots of forums and groups about the different timelines and nothing adds up... some people getting grants reasonably quick and some waiting a lot longer! Can't seem to make any sense or reason of it. Still it'll be worth it all in the long run

    Hi Barry, I'm a radiographer as well and am also heading to QLD on a 489 visa with 70 points. I submitted the EOI back in April and received the initial state invite within a few days. Completed that and received the actual invitation a few weeks after. Lodged for the visa on 1st May and haven't heard anything since! The whole process is unpredictable so can't really advise on how long the profession will remain on the list. I was under the impression the review it yearly but maybe someone else more in the know can advise you on this. Good luck

    AHPRA and ANMAC

    Hi LeeH, Could you give me a rough timeline on your AHPRA application? I'm waiting for a visa grant and trying to time everything just right so I can get flights out to oz and start job hunting asap.... obvs don't want to receive the AHPRA go ahead too soon and have to make an expensive trip out there! Thanks

    489 Visa Gang

    Ok thanks for the info both of you, seems like some mixed reviews. I think I'll just fill out the form 80 just in case. Any experience on form 1221? Or is it the same thoughts? Thanks

    489 Visa Gang

    Hi Guy's, I'm going to lodge my 489 visa in the next few days for QLD and am trying to get everything ready to front load and hopefully speed up the process. What are peoples thoughts/experiences of Form 80 and Form 1221? Are there many direct grants given without them or is it likely that I'll be contacted to provide them later on in the process? Cheers

    Forms 80 and 1221?

    Hi All, Quick question..... Who has to fill out (or is recommended to fill out) the forms 80 and 1221? Is it both for main applicant and partner or one for each person? Thanks in advance Gordon

    Visa Lodgement / English Test

    Great, thanks for the advice both of you. Marisawright it doesn't state anything about the added fee yet. I'm in a hurry to submit so I can also get the HAP number to get the medicals booked. Thanks again ?

    Visa Lodgement / English Test

    Hi all, Received my invite for the 489 visa and just filling out the online form to lodge...... can anyone offer some advice on something. Under my wife's details they ask if she has sat an English language test, she has not yet but we are booked to do so next week. If I lodge the visa with the information that she has not yet sat the test will I later be able to edit the application. For example I've read that without proof of English language ability there is a an additional fee (which is quite big). I have already sat the test and we will be going on my points. Any help offered greatly appreciated..... I want to get this visa lodged asap Thanks Gordon
