    You are well within the processing times at the moment, just try to be patience and don't be counting days as you will send yourself crazy.

    Hi Saund, No one can give you a answer here on how long a CO takes to make their decision. It depends on a number of factors, nomination, visa application, how complex it is - other applicants/dependents on your application etc... However in most cases once your application is picked up by CO they will assess, if they require any additional information (not always requested) then you usually have 28 days to provide requested info. Then it can be a waiting game to when it is picked up again to assess. Other cases are lucky where straight grant no further information is needed. If you can give us an idea of your timeline - usually very useful to create a signature including the same - instructions in my signature Occupation: State: Birth Country: Stream: Number of applicants: ENS 186 Visa and Nomination applied: IMMI Status:

    They are probably just making sure that your employer is adhering to sponsorship obligations. As business needs to be operating legally etc, paying payroll, Taxes etc... My company had to provide a breakdown on Australian Citizens / PR / temporary visa employees to immigration - unsure if they requested any further details regarding them though. Take is as good news because they are looking at your case - once the information is provided you may not have to wait much longer for decision

    I guess immigration are just looking at your organisation and have requested more information - does your company sponsor many workers? They probably just want to ensure everything is in order etc..

    Yes this is what it currently is. They tried to change it to 4 years PR last year but it was never passed. Pauline Hanson is trying to get it to 8 years PR and according to this article: https://www.sbs.com.au/yourlanguage/punjabi/en/article/2018/02/09/pauline-hanson-wants-migrants-wait-8-years-become-citizens a private member's Bill has been brought before the Federal Parliament that seeks to increase the waiting period for permanent residents to eight years before they can apply to be Australian citizens.

    Did you MA look after the nomination part - because both of these is in relation to that. My MA at the time advised me that Immi are going hard on the 'Genuine need for the employee nominating" and that a good strong business case is needed. He recommended for me to list down key achievements while under my 457 - business generated for the company and anything relevant showing my importance within the company. This was submitted in addition with a letter from the Director of my role within the company and the need for me, etc. No equivalent worker - if there is no one equivalent within your business, again a strong business case is needed. This will be research into current salary rates for your occupation and location. Your salary must be no less favourable to current market rates to where you are working.

    Hi Ryan, Scott Morrision will cap permanent migration at 160,000 for the next four years. To be honest, this will not have too much of an affect as 160,000 was consistent with the intake over the past 12 months. Australia accepted 162,417 permanent migrants in the past year.

    Yes - you must withdraw your application - do not let it go to refusal! Withdraw your application and re-apply ensuring that your still within the 6 months of nomination approval. No one can advise on processing times....

    My visa was approved and Marketing Specialists were removed from the list. @tuti - looking at the spreadsheet and in recent weeks there has been Feb 2018 approvals and a couple from 2017. It's a mind field trying to work out what way they are processing the visas - clearly no set order! Looks like SAF levy is a factor as post SAF levy (applicants after 12/08/2018) are getting approved very quick.

    You must apply for the visa within 6 months of the nomination being approved. You can re-apply under the approved nomination as long as same occupation etc... All good, good luck!

    You can have a look at the spreadsheet - there has been a few refusals in this community. (spreadsheet ENS 186 Timeline - Google Sheets ) look over various months Some common reasons... - No genuine need for the employee - evidence not provided. - insufficient evidence that the company can pay wage for 2 years - Training Benchmarks (this will not affect you as replaced from 12/8/2018 with SAF Levy) Nomination approval is the same as application processing times so at the moment the Immi website advises; 75% of applications: 12 months 90% of applications: 13 months But obviously can be processed outside these, could be a few months could be >13 months.
