    190 Visa Grant

    We are all aware of the situation. What is the difference between optimism and unrealistic? I think the majority of people in this thread are awaiting a visa grant for a 190 (Fair assumption?) Are you suggesting its unrealistic for us to get grants? I think the intention of this thread is so people in similar situations can chat and mention anything they have heard, if they have any updates on their situation and maybe to try and keep their hopes up things are moving forward (albeit a slow pace) Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case. Sometimes peoples comments make people stop wanting to interact in this way, which only leaves people less informed and discouraged.

    Seems you can still book flights on sky scanner, they might be expensive but looks like you can buy them. Just need the golden approval. Sometimes a positive thought can do wonders for the people waiting for a visa grant.

    190 Visa Grant

    @Domo Did you have any luck with finding a job offer and getting in touch with DHA/Member of parliament? This wait is getting a bit depressing now. A bit of an update from home affairs wouldnt go amiss. I know they're not the most vocal with updates of this sort, but it would be reassuring to the people who have been waiting what feels like a lifetime

    190 Visa Grant

    Same here, but we applied under the wife’s occupation secondary school teacher. The company I’m hoping to work for when we finally get there is doing lots of work in the healthcare sector, so was wondering if I might be able to nudge our application onwards from that angle ??

    190 visa

    Great news! We have been waiting around the same time, submitted 24/1/2020. i wonder if they’re getting round to visas from this time of submission or if they’re just approving based on occupations?? all the best! eddie

    190 Visa Grant

    Yeah I spotted that! It might be worth a call to the agent I guess, I think people are just getting a standardised responses?

    190 Visa Grant

    Hopefully @Marisawrightisn’t referring to somebody just waiting for a grant. i am of the same understanding as you mention @Southlander Although until it’s in my hand/electronically assigned to my passport then nothing is a given! We are 2 days over 12 months! Who knows when something is going to move in favour of us offshore! I would imagine Nothing much can happenthe quarantine bottle neck is sorted? Allegedly 40000 Australians can’t get home, I’m sure that number was around 26000 before Xmas?

    190 Visa Grant

    The agent we are using said to me if the anzco is removed from the list any visas in processing are unaffected?? As long as your application is bulletproof and your medicals and police certs are all clear then shouldnt be a problem? Its just an annoying waiting game.

    190 Visa Grant

    Hi mate, We are also waiting, submitted our application on 24th Jan 2020 - No case officer contact as of yet. We are also offshore. I would imagine it is dependant on occupation and how much of the budget is left for us offshore. Fingers crossed. Regards, Eddie

    Australia quarantine update

    Hi Bob, I guess its a bit of a rock and hard place for us, we would love to be in a position to book a place in quarantine but until our visa are granted we would be silly to plan that far ahead, are there any options for people waiting to receive a grant and then make all there plans straight after? Thanks Eddie
