    187 Visa Processing Time

    You can do that by creating an immiaccount on the immi website, the information needed will be on your bridging visa in order for you to access your file, it doesn't matter if your MA knows that you have made an account to check your file, after all that's your application and you have the right to view that. If the status changes to further assessment that means your on your final stage, the case officer is verifying all your documents and will be processing it soon, if it still in initial assessment that means - no one has looked at your file yet but it doesn't mean you are stuck, it could all change from initial assessment to finalised directly. Hope this answers your question!! All the best...

    Since your waiting that long..I would suggest you check on your own immiaccount... Just coz they asked for s56 that doesn't mean it will change to further assessment. Some people are still on received, so only by checking your status you would know if your file has progressed in the queue or it is still waiting to be looked at by a case officer.

    Sorry to hear about your situation...it must be so stressful waiting in anticipation.

    Generally it's 28 days but depending on the documents they've asked for, you could ask for an extension of time.

    When did you apply and what's your occupation, if you don't mind... seems pretty strange waiting so long after the nomination has been approved

    I don't think it should affect applicants who have had their nomination approved because that means that they file has already begun processing. The other thing is that this timeframe is just an estimate, there are many applicants who have got their visa in 6-7 months and there are a few unfortunate ones who are still waiting over 35 months.

    This time frame keeps changing every few months depending on the load of application...a year back it was 17-19 months, now they will have a surge of application because this visa is shutting down in November, most likely by December the timeframe will decrease again.

    That should be fine...as long as you go for your medicals before the 28 days, there shouldn't be any issues. Once the medicals are done it usually gets uploaded within 3 working days...so you will still be within the 28days.

    Don't wait... lodged your application for your nomination and visa...your wasting time...you will get your RCB anytime now up to 12 weeks, but even if it's a negative result for your RCB, you can submit another application even after your nomination and visa have been filed. There is also a possibility that your nomination can be approved without a RCB.

    You are partially correct, it's a general assumption that the employer is the nominator and applicant and they are supposed to pay all charges related to the visa applicant- this includes: - RCB - Nomination (no fees required) - Visa application (only for the primary applicant) Migration Agents fees (professional fee) Unfortunately there are many employers who are willing to sponsor but not willing to pay all these related fees. The burden of this then relies on the visa applicants. This is not just small organisation I'm talking about, I personally was sponsored by a 5star resort and hotel, but in the past they has sponsored 2 employees who walked out on them mid-way of the application so from then on they have decided not to pay any expenses for any employee being sponsored. I'm sure there are many people on this forum who will understand what I'm talking about and regards small companies in various fields do exactly the same thing who show immigration that they paying for the applicant but indirectly make the applicant pay for it.

    This is strange...if ur nomination is approved or rejected...even though the nomination is addressed to the employer, it's your right to view this letter so that you can prepare what you require for the AAT. Your agent is being overly professional and a little stupid, I'm sure you are paying your MA fees not your employer right - remind them this.

    It's nothing to be worried about, if it's not your fault, you are free to find another job in the same occupation and the same regional state, for this your visa will not be affected in anyway as your employer is not complying with the regulation of the the contract.
