    Visa medicals.

    Hi, Quick question hopefully for the Agents out there. When we lodged our visa in Jan 2020 we decided to frontload the application with police checks and medicals, which we believe we will be requested to renew as and when we get CO contact. Is it possible to re do medicals with the original HAP ID numbers from the original now expired medicals ? Many thanks Ed.
  2. Hi, We submitted a complete application 24th jan 2020. I dont think it differs state to state, its just luck of the draw for anybody if your not critical sector.
  3. Not trying to sound negative, just be prepared. You never know how long the wait is going to be
  4. Once you have submitted your are at their mercy, they don’t give any info out other than that which I posted above (updated monthly) Unfortunately it’s the news reporting not the government, after 26 months of waiting it’s only when the government announces something that it peaks my interest, even then it can take ages for the government to bring it to fruition
  5. @Ausvisitor I think the 190 visa processing is much longer tan that. We have currenly been waiting for 26 month. (190 QLD secondary school teacher.) Below is the current processing times for a 190 visa, Unless your in a critical sector the wait will most likely be towards the longer end of the scale. Visa Stream 25% Of Visas Processed 50% Of Visas Processed 75% Of Visas Processed 90% Of Visas Processed Additional Information 190 - Skilled Nominated (subclass 190) 4 months 7 months 8 months 22 months Applicants should be aware that points tested skilled migration visa applications that are not an occupation within a Critical Sector may exceed the average processing time. This is because each visa subclass contains applications that have a different processing priority. Occupations within a critical sector are given highest processing priority.

    Question to the MARA's re 190 offshore grants

    I have no problem paying for it, If that’s an option then I’d gladly pay for a chat with Paul. I believe those of us waiting for a visa grant were just looking for an agents perspective of the situation and the possible ways it could play out. ✌

    Question to the MARA's re 190 offshore grants

    Again, I was hoping to get a reply from somebody with a professional opinion.

    Question to the MARA's re 190 offshore grants

    I would like a RMA’s perspective on this? I understand theoretically it may be the case but surely unlikely. I have read countless peoples opinions and theory’s of what could be the next steps and welcome the RMA’s educated opinions as hopefully their fingers are on the pulse. @paulhand

    Question to the MARA's re 190 offshore grants

    So we could be waiting forever to get a grant then? Surely they can’t leave us pending indefinitely? It sounds like they’re doing something dodgy with the processing statistics to me! 90% in 18 months doesn’t seem accurate to me.
