    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2018-2019

    Hi All, Sorry if this question has already been answered - I did flick back a few pages... but no joy. I need to send my UK passport off to be renewed (it expires in 6 months) this is likely to take some time to get the renewal due to delays with covid in the UK. Just wondering if I am called for the interview/test and do not have my passport will it be an issue? I do have ID documents such as NSW Drivers License and UK License, Birth Certificate, Medicare Card... Can anyone confirm on this? Thanks in advance

    Hi, I would recommend using a migration agent. We lodged a 186 application under my partner's small construction company and it the nomination application was rejected - even though the reason for rejection could easily be explained/resolved Immigration did not give the opportunity to ask for further information. Just straight out rejection. This caused us a lot of stress and expense. Second time applying we used a migration agent, which was granted. The company need to build a good, strong case for the nomination for PR it is a lot more complex then a temporary visa such as 457/482. It is extra expense to use an agent but at least you have peace of mind that the application has been prepared properly and with experience. Wish we engaged one the first time round, would of saved us a lot in hindsight. We have just applied for our citizenship this month. Best of luck with the process!

    Sorry - How do you know if I am totally wrong? We have a migration agency working with our company as we sponsor a lot of people. Part of the nomination application requires a ENS Declaration from the employer - stating that "Will provide full-time employment for the visa applicant for at least two years" If there is any changes in the circumstances then it is rightful and should be necessary that the employer notify the department. Especially in the case where a nomination is successful and perhaps the application is still pending and the employer is no longer able to offer the position to the applicant - then obviously it is important for the employer to notify the department.

    Hi Tapas, Nominations are valid for 6 months > meaning that the employee being nominated must have their application in within 6 months (as you already applied doesn't really apply in your case) In regards to the second question, the employer must notify the department if no longer offering position as in some cases circumstances change - eg business can no longer offer employment etc. Also business makes a declaration as does the employee being nominated that they will remain in position for 2 years. I guess if anything changes the department wants to be notified as technically the visa was granted on this criteria. Nothing to worry about really, you should consult with migration agent on the same.

    Hi @emon_061 It is the same as onshore, although onshore may be given a priority to offshore. As per Home Affairs website current processing time frames; 186 Direct Entry Stream Processing Time 75% of applications: 15 months 90% of applications: 19 months However these are just indicative. Some recent grants have shown a little as 2 months, others months to 1 year or even 2 years. You can create an immi account and import your application to keep an eye on it if you wish. Simply to to https://online.immi.gov.au/lusc/login and click create ImmiAccount, fill out requested details and you will need your application reference too to complete the import.

    @Jerita @Pradip12 @Sere Hey, guys you've all applied <1 year so unsure why you are complaining about processing times - when you are still within them! Don't know why complaining that September is very quiet, it is only 2nd business day. And remember this forum represents a very small sample of the thousands/tens of thousand 186 applications. Enjoy life and do not get obsessed with comparing your applications to other (those who have got approved within a few months), the more you worry less about this the happier you will be!! Complaining in this forum is annoying and not helpful for anyone. I know there are many still waiting from 2017 still and are not making half the noise or any noise compared to those have their applications in from 2019 end of 2018.

    Hi @Vee Shah 28 days is not the maximum time frame - that is just the deadline you have to provide the additional docs/info requested. As some n this forum are >28 days and still are waiting for CO to open application again. Others however can be 28 days or less than 28 days. Its really the case of "how long is a piece of string" Sometimes Nomination and Application are simultaneously approved - but not always the case.

    Copied from Home Affairs Wesbite: Global visa processing times will be updated monthly, providing you with an indicative timeframe for processing applications. Processing times are available for the majority of visa subclasses products, but will exclude a few subclasses such as those closed to new entrants, subject to capping and queueing, or which have a low volume of applications. Two processing times are displayed in calendar days, indicating how long it is taking to finalise 75 and 90 per cent of applications submitted globally. Processing times are impacted each month by changes in application volumes, seasonal peaks, complex cases, and incomplete applications. Processing times include applications lodged online and by paper. Where available, you should lodge your application online as it helps streamline processing arrangements. ------- Hi Jerita, Processing times are just indicative, as you can get an idea in this forum there is no pattern or definite way to answer your question. - some are getting processed within 1 to a few months, other cases months to a year and other cases 2 years. No one can advise which cases make it through quicker/slower. Its just a waiting game and if I could give any advise it would be to put it to the back of your mind, stay positive and take each day as it comes. The more people get caught up and obsessed with checking and getting impatience just makes you negative, impatient and stressed about it.

    Hi NnN, I have already advised on this, with nomination refusal talk to MA about your options as so complex especially because you are on a BV already. You can reapply now - complete new Nomination and Application to submit. However because you hold a BVA, you will be put on a BVC which has a no travel condition (you cannot leave Australia until a decision is made on your Visa). You can Appeal to AAT - however this is lengthy process >1 year maybe 2 years. However if the appeal is unsuccessful you will have a Section 48 bar on applying for another visa within Australia. Also your bridging visa, it will expire 28 days after the AAT decision. If your employer is not appealing the Nomination Refusal then you should withdraw your visa application. As a refused visa application is something you need to claim when applying for other visas here in Australia or for visa overseas. You would have received a notification of the nomination refusal, which will give you 28 days to comment/take action. So if you are not appealing then on the 28th day you should withdraw your application. This will then give you a further 21 days before you have to leave the country or re-submit a visa application. However as I mentioned above as you are already on a BVA submitting a new visa application you will move to a Bridging Visa C. And you will not be able to leave the country until the visa is approved. Really Recommend engaging a MA/Lawyer time is of the essence in this situation.

    This is definitely not true!! It is only unpaid leave that is not counted. I have been overseas each year no issues.

    The best way is to upload to the application online as done real time. your case officer could scan the bank statements and attach as supporting documents. Heard of people posting too (in this forum re police certificates), but online is quicker and more reliable.

    Hi, O that is understandable, well yes listen to your MA - you do not want your visa to be put in jeopardy!! If those extra few weeks is critical to your years experience needed then wait until you have that under your belt before going on leave. I am pretty sure though that you need to have those 2/3 years experience at the time of applying - not during the waiting period for visa grant - best out check that out too.
