    Another thing to note that should make you feel a bit more positive about the situation is that my housemate had the exact same problem. She had been arrested at the age of 14 for shop lifting so her police check also said 'No Live Trace'. She is now 30 years old, and a really great genuine, trustworthy and hard working person! Her MA prepared a Stat Dec and immigration approved her visa with no other questions asked.

    Would it not be worth getting a Stat Dec signed by a JP? A bit like the Form 80 I did this before immigration potentially asked for it. Its another form of evidence to show you are of good character etc. See link below to the form: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/form-listing/forms/character-statutory-declaration.pdf Hope this helps a bit!

    TRT stream - we just paid for the SAF levy. There is no need to upload any training evidence unless immigration request it. However they made it very clear that the SAF was replacing the training benchmarks. It would be highly unlikely that they request evidence of previous training expenditure.

    Hi all, I remind you that my nomination got approved in 5.5 months (28th August - 12th February) and: - We are a very small company (3 people) - I am the first and only immigrant employee - We do not have an MA - My occupation is on the STOL This forum is a very small percentage of the tens of thousands of applications they receive. So even though we may see trends on here, they may not even exist! STAY POSITIVE!

    I completed my medical this morning as my nomination was approved on the 12th February and it was very unexpected! My last updated date has been changed to 15th Feb which I am assuming is because my medical results are starting to be uploaded, not because anyone is looking at my file! I understand this is immigration we're talking about, and it could be literally any time - but I am just interested if there is a common time in between nomination approval and visa approval? From peoples experience, what are your thoughts? Be intrigued to hear what people have seen/read! Cheers!

    The whole application has just been pure luck! I do not know who is looking down on me from above... But like everyone on here, this process has caused me a lot of stress and anxiety. It is a very small firm, we did the application ourselves, and I am the first and only immigrant to work for the company. I have been totally blessed and I am very grateful.

    No its a very small firm - only 3 of us in the office! And I did the application by myself with my boss... I FEEL SO ALIVE!

    I know we all may feel slightly deflated to see the waiting times have increase slightly. However - the 90% of applications has decreased by 1 month which I believe is the more important figure! It is still showing that waiting times are decreasing on the whole. We've recently seen a lot of late Feb - mid March applications approved meaning overall the backlog has nearly been processed! I understand some of you are still waiting from much earlier, which is very frustrating! But we are all in this situation together, and I am positive that waiting times over the coming months will begin to return to back to a more 'normal' time frame now the backlog is coming to an end!

    Is the spreadsheet still being used/up to date with? I am definitely starting to see a shift in reduced waiting times for the first time in over a year! Would be good to get that documented by one of the admins? Cheers! And congrats to all with recent approvals - my details are below: Occupation: Architectural Draftsperson Country: Low Risk - UK State: NSW Stream: TRT No. of Applicants: 1 Nomination + Visa Submission: 28th August 2018 IMMI Status: Received

    I believe the processing times should decrease as they reach the March applications onwards. I read that Immigration are not making employers subject to the training benchmarks and the new SAF levy regulations simultaneously. These were part of the March 1st changes. This means they will be able to go through applications faster as they do not have to check receipts against complicated payroll balance sheets.
