    Hello all, Congrats to all the new permanent! Just a quick question, my company (HR department) did the nomination back in October 2017 but a MA did the application in March 2018, the issue is that the MA asked me an update on the nomination's status, and the person in charge in my company is on leave for 5 weeks and didn't let access to anyone to the immi portal. Does anyone know a way to check the nomination status outside the immi portal? I don't want to wait 5 weeks before coming back to the MA, I've been waiting for 13 months already...

    Btw, I've just noticed that my nomination has been lodged in October 2017 by my company and my application lodged in March 2018 by an MA. I've put the exact details in my signature if someone can update the spreadsheet... Thanks

    Congrats! Enjoy your relief! How far did your wife put the living history for the last 10 years? I'm waiting for the same visa as you (186 TRT - Developer programmer), and I applied in March this year (nomination and visa). For both our living history stopped on Jan 2010 (not exactly 10 years), because there are not enough lines on the form. Do you recommend to contact our MA to update the form 80 now or better to wait until they get back to us? I'm afraid that changing the application now will delay the approval again...

    This game makes me being depressed... I can't believe how the immigration handles this, this is unacceptable, really. If all this mess is in place, that's because Australia suffers from the lack of talented people like us all, why are they so painful when it comes to providing visas? This is crazy... I can't believe we have someone from 2015 as well! The fact that they increase randomly the processing time is also something I don't get... I wish the best of luck (including me) to everyone here!

    Excuse my ignorance guys but can someone tell me what CO stands for? MA as well? Very happy to see March applications being reviewed as well! I applied on the 15th of March on my end.

    Hi there, Do you guys think that this new processing time applies to the current applications? Or just for the new ones? As I said above, I applied in March this year (186 - TRT) and it was 9 months at that time, should I expect 9 or 15 months now?

    Hi all, I applied mid march for the 186 TRT -> Developer/programmer. I know that I can't expect an answer anytime soon but something on my application worries me a lot and I wanted to see if other people were in the same situation as myself. When I started my 457 I was a simple developer (I spent 4 years under the 457 visa). Then I had a massive opportunity to be the lead developer and today, I manage the whole department (20 developers and I was alone when I started). Even if I operate in the same field, same department, etc. my occupation changed a little bit (I'm a manager and I rarely touch the code anymore). Also, my salary is more than 3 times what it was when I started almost 5 years ago. Has anyone here experienced the same thing and had a positive outcome? I want to believe that they will be smart enough to understand that I just involved in my job, but based on what I read here, I have some doubt... I just don't want to be the victim of my own success... I'll let you know how I go. No news so far and my wife and I are on the bridging visa. Thanks All
