    Thanks - no, I didn't. I also didn't wait for medicals etc to be requested but just uploaded them when I applied. @Suusz, I really hope you get some news soon. I know it must be hard to hear other people's news when you are still waiting (I had so many months of nightmares getting my nomination in, and with the original 457 application, I can only imagine what 2 years of that is like). I hope whatever is happening means that everyone's timelines move forward faster than before though. All the best!

    Guys, I just cried in my office - my visa just got granted!!!!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable, I am in total shock. Something crazy is happening over there at the moment, I hope you all benefit too
  3. In case anyone else has a panic about this - looks like I passed (well, it now says 'Clearance provided', so I hope so). Phew!

    I just want to say, so much respect for all of you waiting for so long already - it's only been one tiny week for me, and it's so hard not to think about it constantly and check/ google obsessively. You have all done so much to just get here and be waiting, well done to all of us! I wish you all good news soon
  5. I'm having a sudden panic about this, any shared experience would be appreciated: I had a hip replacement after a car accident 4 years ago. Totally functional now. I've suddenly realised this may exclude me form PR if they assess me as posing "significant healthcare and community service costs" Has anyone been granted a PR visa despite having had a joint (knee or hip I guess) replacement previously??

    It was! Caught me totally unprepared to submit. Pure luck (I guess... who knows?!) Thanks.

    Finally got all my docs together to hit submit today, thanks to all the advice in this thread - thanks to the contributors! Still waiting on a police clearance, but perhaps they won't ask for it seeing as I haven't returned to my country since arriving on my original 457. Good luck everyone

    Improving the assessment of food system sustainability @HarryWong Congrats! Can I ask what docs they asked for re. relationship? Had you already provided some and they asked for more? (trying to figure out how much to submit) Thanks!

    Can anyone help with a bridging visa Q - I've searched but not clear on it: I'm on a 457 that expires in June, about to apply for 186 (nomination approved). I want to travel in April - will I need a bridging visa B to travel straight away any time after I've lodged my application, or only after June when my 457 expires?

    @Kiwibayer what further docs did they ask for? Fingers crossed for you.

    Even though you were already on his visa? Or are you only joining for the 186? Sounds stressful, hope you got it sorted out

    Wow - it sounds like you are already in oz - does that mean your partner was already on your existing visa as a secondary and they still asked you to prove it again twice?? Yikes

    Hi all, a question about de facto evidence: The agent I spoke to indicated that the evidence required to prove a de facto partner included on this visa type is less than for a partner visa, but the only info I can find online relates to partner visas. Can anyone tell me if you need to go to the lengths of getting stat decs from friends etc, putting together pictures etc for a partner on a 186? We're already in oz on my 457 but don't have many friends here. We do have a join homeloan in our home country though, he's on my insurance, and both bank documents list the same address. Any thoughts appreciated.
