    Just update your signature with the new application timeline, someone will update your new one as withdrawn/refused in the spreadsheets.

    Health Check

    Have you tried to call the medical centre to check? By the length of your wait, they will likely say that they found no further concerns so that’s why they didn’t bother getting back to you. But yeah, just ring them up and check, quick and easy

    EOI INCORRECT INFO- received invitation

    Even if it doesn't contribute any points, you should inform your CO as outlined in the guidelines that any information wrongly given to immigration can be a reason for your visa being rejected.

    I think its really out of the hands of us migrants, so I think it's better that you pay less attention to them! Just fingers crossed your application gets processed soon enough.

  6. Why think about other women when he already found one he wants to marry? @JigneshAsk many agents on this site are now saying you should be careful how you use the visitor visa as a stepping stone, because the purpose is to tour the country, not to live permanently. So this reason can be used to refuse entry (e.g. your partner don’t have return ticket, good travel plans etc). Talk to one they can give you some advice!
  7. Based on my experience and what others have gone through, they open your case again shortly after the due date no matter how quick you submit requested docs. It has been around 4-6 weeks from the request date, but of course there is always a chance that could take a bit longer. But mostly within that timeframe, so nearly there!

    Hopefully soon, if you look at the spreadsheet, uni lecturers are one of the few jobs that have a very quick result. Hang in there!

    $150k basic salaries enough

    It really depends on your lifestyle and existing debt you have. your income should be plenty for most couples, but if you fancy a nice place to rent and eat out each week, then your savings will be less indeed. Also leave some for entertainment, like movies, hanging out with friends, buying clothes etc. never dig into savings to live, it should be increasing over time.

    Is the form 80 the last form? In Hell

    This is my experience with form 80. I filled one when applying for my partner visa. I also travelled quite a lot for my work, but I did my best to note down all the trips I made. However, the dates I just guessed approx time and duration, as digging those details were (as you already know) challenging. At the end of the day, nothing else was requested further. I think just like others mentioned above, it could be for requesting some police checks for countries you may have been for certain number of days.

    The request was made on 21 March, and I supplied all the docs on 28 March. If they checked after the 4 weeks period they give you, then it took them around 2 weeks to get the checks done

    ENS 186 After Nomination Grant

    If your employer uses the same agent, then the agent handles both nomination and application. So the agent knows everything. If you don’t use an agent, then you handle your application, and employer handle the nomination. At the end of the day, they are two separate applications, but immi will see them and link them both when making decisions
