    489 visa Grant waiting 2018

    We got our invitation from NT today, been roughly 80 days since we had submitted our EOI. Decent progress!

    489 visa Grant waiting 2018

    There are a number of people that have been granted a 489 within 100 days of application. Wow!

    489 visa Grant waiting 2018

    We are hitting the 2 month stage since our EOI went in for Northern Territory. The Territory website says 2-3 months although our MA told us it has been taking longer and it was 3-4 when we lodged but here's to hoping it could come any time from now. 75% done in 7 months once the visa application is submitted according to the Home Affairs, would hope to fit into that bracket being as we're using an MA. Anybody know what kind of time people are waiting on 489s at the mo?

    Never happened. Aus government changed the legislation so now the company is currently carrying out labour testing so we have a 489 application in now.

    Hairdresser Skills assessment - Query

    I'm really sorry, i've only just seen these posts! How did you do?? My wife passed with a couple of 9s and 8.5s so that was good news!

    Hairdresser Skills assessment - Query

    My wife is sitting the IELTS next Saturday. She's quite nervous. Her English is excellent, she's well spoken, intelligent and has always used good grammar and corrects me when i'm wrong but when you start doing research it's quite daunting. We need 8's really to get to 75 points so there's a certain pressure to do it which sucks. We too are targetting Darwin. Not hairdressers i just found this thread when i searched Northern Territory!

    489 Visa Gang

    Late to the party but that's amazing. We just got a positive skills assessment back in 3 weeks rather than 3 months. My Wife sits the English test in 2 weeks when we'll then look to get the EOI in by the end of November. If we get that kind of turnaround i'll be so blooming happy! Hopefully my wife will have 65 + 10 SS for Vet Nurse which is on the NT priority list. Super happy today that the skills assessment came through so quickly.

    EOI to nomination times

    I believe you're correct?! Where was that for, i'd love that kind of turnaround! So, what's your nominated occupation, points and other info then? We're still waiting for the skills assessment results although it's only just shy of 4 weeks so could easily be another 8. IELTS booked for next month.

    EOI to nomination times

    Well i'm on my wife's visa and she's a vet nurse, i'll be looking to be a case worker or care home manager with people with Autism and learning difficulties. We're earlier in the process than you, waiting on the skills assessment to come back but there's no reasons to stress on that. Time-wise likely to put EOI in hopefully mid-november we have most our documents ready with our agent. I guess we hope to reason and invitation from NT by Feb and hopefully a grant by British Summertime so we're there when the weather is at it's best for NT! We're looking at Darwin and Palmerston.

    EOI to nomination times

    Hi mate. Haven't had a lot of info but i think EOI are going through reasonably quickly but it's the waiting on the 489 that's the painful bit. Once applied some 489s in with other states sponsoring are taking 3-4 months which i assume would be the same for NT as once you apply that's to the government rather than NT. Fingers crossed the process once putting the EOI in is only taking about 6-8 months rather than the 10-15 quoted on the home affairs site. Where are you looking to live and what are you planning to do over in NT, work etc?
  14. We're currently using Overseas Emigration and they've been fantastic so far, really helpful and always able to chat and answer any questions and they've pointed out loads we haven't realised despite a lot of research on our part. They've been invaluable.
