    190 visa

    Congratulations on your grant! My husband is the main applicant and he’s a first class welder.

    190 visa

    Processing times are now up to 10 months , we are 8 months tomorrow https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/skilled-nominated-190
  3. Hi, We are now 239 days since lodgement, case officer asked for form 80 back in October and not heard anything since, we front loaded everything too. At least your ready to go I suppose, we still have our house to sell, my husband doesn’t want to sell until we have the visa! So looks like we’re going to need to make a very expensive validation trip as a family of 5 , which was not in the budget. Really hoping to hear this week! Fingers crossed for you. x

    Validity of Medicals

    Thanks that’s what I was thinking

    Validity of Medicals

    Hi, I saw somewhere that once a visa was lodged a case officer contacted them to repeat their medicals as they were done more than 6 months ago, can anyone shed some light on this as I thought they were valid for 1 year the same as the police checks? We done our medicals in June so they are over 6 months old now so I’m really hoping that’s not the case as we’re still waiting for a grant! Xx
  6. Hi @Westy123 just wondering you’ve had any updates since your ex was contacted? Still nothing here

    Metal fabricator technical interview

    Well done, told you you’d manage no problem! Good luck with the next stage
  8. Anyone got any updates?? I’m slowly going crazy here, surely can’t be much longer. It’s so disheartening seeing people getting grants who lodged in October and November x

    Waiting for grant 190

    @Westy123 that sounds promising! How did they make contact with your ex? was it by phone? I’m in the same situation so wonder if my ex has been contacted yet (we’re not on speaking terms!) We’re exactly 7 months since lodging application now, surerly cant be much longer x

    Watched pot never boils!

    Congratulations! We’re still waiting, now on day 210 x
  11. We are still waiting too, lodged 19th June, CO contact us on the 12th October for form 80s. We front loaded medicals and police checks which run out in May! We still have a house to sell too, it’s going to be tight @Samlakin and @Westy123 I’m guessing you’ll get a direct grant any day if you’ve not heard anything yet xx
  12. Hi, We lodged ours on 19th June so I completely understand how your feeling! It seems like there are so many direct grants just now for August and even September, it surely can’t be much longer now, still holding out for a grant before Christmas Spoke to our agent yesterday and they said not to expect anything now till February but surely not?? I had put the whole thing to the back of my mind for a while but I’m back obsessing over it again.

    Waiting for grant 190

    @WizardofOz2018 yes we front loaded everything apart from form 80s we got asked for them last month and submitted them on the 19th October so hoping we will hear back in the next couple of weeks, @Westy123 fingers crossed you should hear any day now! I’m assuming you’ll be heading over ASAP if you’ve sold up already?

    Waiting for grant 190

    Has anyone had any updates recently? @Westy123 @Libs0808 We are still waiting for a grant, form 80s were sent back 36 days ago now, really hoping we hear back before Christmas!

    Waiting for grant 190

    Yes it’s very annoying to say the least! We submitted form 80 on the 19th of October and haven’t heard anything since, just waiting and waiting some more. I really hope we hear back before everything close over Christmas
