    My agent sent a follow up asking to finalise as a priority as well outside the timelines and all further info was submitted 2 weeks previously. There was no response on this but my visa was granted 1 week later so who knows. Can't hurt to try I don't think.

    I have taken annual leave but none was unpaid. Not sure what the rules are about that sorry.

    Guys! It HAPPENED! I just got my PR granted. Nearly 20 months of waiting. It really hasn't sunk in yet. This has been BY FAR the most expensive, stressful, rollercoaster journey of my life. My case was quite complicated and there were many hurdles but I did it! If any of you need an MA i can't recommend Carmen & Associates enough. They have always gone above and beyond for me and were just excellent. I have spent the last hour on calls to friends and family and I cannot wait to celebrate with everyone. NO work has been done since 3.30 Thanks to everyone on this forum for all of your support, advice and laughs over the many many months. Just know- if you have a complicated case, small business turnover and high-risk occupation and been waiting FOREVER-- there is hope! Here's hoping the 2-year-old bottle of Dom Perignon has aged well! Thanks again guys and all the best! x

    Hey don't stress. This happened to me and also others. If you search keywords in this forum it will come up. Sometimes police check doesn't seem to change the 'last updated' date for some reason.

    I would say just do AFP. It sounds like they are just checking off final details and you should get your PR soon. There is a 3 month window for health checks that immi can use at their discretion . I think you'll be fine.

    How long have you been in 'further assessment' could you maybe put your timeline in signature? Go to account settings. On the left-hand side there is a menu, choose 'signature' , copy one of the members' signatures there and change your details.

    Yes its me @KamSingh , but my 457 expires 2nd march. I am probably going to withdraw 186 and apply for partner visa if I do not hear very soon.

    Alright I got a response from MA and it lines up with my reading this arvo. Not great news really: I read up that even having kids/business etc is being rejected as 'compelling circumstances' and it's pretty hard to get past. She suggested I give it 2 weeks and then considering if i want to apply for partner visa if haven't heard about 186 (457 expires 2nd march).

    From what i have read so far. If it is applied for on a bridging visa, schedule 3 waivers can be quite tricky. Amongst others you will need to you will need to provide evidence that; -you are not the holder of a substantive visa because of factors beyond your control - there are compelling reasons for granting the visa--- apparently, this is the hard one to get by and can be risky.

    Thanks for all the info guys! Hopefully, she confirms this. As long as I can work I don't mind being a prisoner. We are saving for a house so no holidays might help me in this department
