    Last updated means just that ..It can be an update from you, your MA or a Case Officer.

    For us the first we heard was that the employer nomination had been approved. Then 1 week later on our Immi account the “last updated” date changed, then the same day the status changed to “Finalised” I think that if they had needed any more docs, it would have changed to “open” or “Inital Assessment” maybe? Once the status changed to Finalised, I called our MA to tell them it had been granted. The grants will appear as messages on your Immi account.

    Our nomination was approved last Wednesday. Immi status still says Reveived so we’re hoping our application will be looked at any day now. I contacted our MA on Monday left a voicemail but she only emailed me back today. Her email said basically ... it still says Received at the moment they may ask for more Uk police checks as they expired in November 2018 Question 1: we haven’t been back to England since Feb 2017 so will they ask for updated ones??? She also said ...our Australian police checks run out 30th Jan 2019, so they might ask for new ones of those too?? Question 2: Why they are still valid? Then she finished the email off with .. Hope you have a lovely Christmas!

    Hi there Can I ask if you know why there was a delay between Nomination being approved and PR granted? Did they request more information from you?

    Agent Cost BVB

    Just to update my post... My bad! We’ll sort of. The MA didn’t clearly write the cost in the email. Total BVB Costs are $250+gst MA fees and $145 lodgement fee, inclusive for 3 of us.

    Agent Cost BVB

    Hi We’re a family of 3 currently on a BVA and we need to apply for a BVB, were waiting for a 186 visa decision. Our agent has quoted $250+gst per person and $145 fee! That’s almost $1,000 It looks easy enough to complete ourselves Are we being ripped off?

    I agree with the comments from others about getting permanent residency to come here. A 457 has been a pathway for us to get to Australia and weve applied for permanent residency now (were awaiting the outcome) It has all been and still is a bit of a gamble. It was just the best option for us at the time .

    What exactly are they saying the money is for? Alarm bells would ring with me. My husband is A HGV mechanic and we got 457 sponsorship to come out here. It was in 2014 and rules change all the time but ... The company who sponsored him paid for his 457 & agency fees, we only paid for mine and our sons visas. No medicals or police checks we’re required just ticked declaration boxes. We used Gavin at techsonthemove
