    Investor Visa Subclass 188b

    Not yet, the last stages are a bit of a drag. Hopefully soon.

    After medicals, it’s a long wait brother. You can anticipate a wait of a minimum of 12-14 months.

    Another update: I submitted all the requested documents and received a request to make the designated investment of AUD 1.5 within 70 days.

    Investor Visa Subclass 188b

    Update: After 14.5 months, I have received a request for more information from the case officer. Hopefully it picks up pace from here. Anyone has any thoughts to share on how their application went after request for additional information and how long it typically takes for a decision from this point on?

    Yes, I’d say you shouldn’t expect for a case worker to look up your file until at least May 2020. If your application is accurate and you are confident of your documentation viz., source/path of funds, you should plan to liquidate your assets by July 2020 and be prepared to invest in the bonds when you receive the invite. Good luck.

    Hi Indo, Please refer to my response to other threads on this query. How are you doing with your application? You seem to have applied in the same month as me (May 2018).

    Hi TiMoniSam, Thank you for sharing your experience in great detail. I have shared my case details on this thread, so please look it up for your reference. Myself and my spouse have applied to VIC, 13 months ago and still waiting. Will keep you posted of any developments. My assessment is it will take anywhere between 16-18 months from date of filing to actual grant of the visa.

    Hi Manrug, I can confirm that you have 70 days from the time you are invited (this is prior to the actual grant of the visa) to make the investment of 1.5 mln in treasury bonds. Any other time frames you may hear are incorrect. Hope this helps

    Hi Asif, Sorry I have been silent on this forum. My questions did not have any takers for so long that I imagined no one would ever respond (also because the volume of applications for the 188b stream is super thin). It appears I got all my dates incorrect by a month. I lodged my visa application on 26th May 2018. Following the request for medical and PC and subsequent completion of the same on 26th June 2018, I haven’t heard back from the department yet. This is my 13th month after lodging of my application. Hopefully, I should hear from them request for additional documentation etc., in the next 3-4 months. Did you end up filing your application? Love to hear how yours went. Glad to be of any help.

    Investors moving to Australia

    Hi there, We applied for the Business Visa (Investor) subclass 188b. Here’s the time line and status so far: - EOI and State Nomination (NSW) on 09/03/18 - Nomination granted on 31/03/18 - Visa application on 26/04/18 - Medical and police clearance completed - 25/05/18 Can someone help with the following questions, please? 1. Is the request for medical/police clearance any indication of when we might receive a grant, as I believe there is only a validity of 12 months? 2. The processing time on the website says 19-20 months, so very surprised with the speed. We cannot make the move until June 2019, so will an early grant be a problem? 3. How long do we have to make the designated investment from the date of grant receipt? Will the department offer flexibility with an extension if required?
