    Investor Visa Subclass 188b

    Jep, states 29-30 mounth. Puh, I cannot belive this is for our applications, launched in 2018, as well. They double the number of visa places, but the process takes ages to process the application. Is there such a high demand?

    We hope so. When we applied, it was 20 mounth 75% and 22 mounth 90% of application processed. We wait now 23 mounth and do not even have a case officer.

    Great. But they need to increase number of case officers a lot. After they did not really manage to work down the 6.500 application level, how they want to manage 13,500? I hope they will put more focus on it now.

I really hope we are soon in the processing, so much delayed.

    Do you have special recomondations, based on countries of origin? Most applicants will have a tax agent in their home country, but most will be looking for a skilled tax agent in Australia.

    You can open online a Westpac account as a potential migrant. I had to have my German bank to confirm my identity to the Westpac branch in London = https://www.westpac.com.au/personal-banking/bank-accounts/transaction/choice/migrants/ I did not have any problems transfering the money. Actually, I did not tansfer the money directly to Australia, but to a German/Beglium account of https://transferwise.com/. This international money transfer service is far cheaper as the local banks. Best exchange rate and fees. So you send the money to them, they send it to your Westpac account. I did the transfer in several steps, so not all at once.

    Yes. Same I heared. But, based on this, as Jay will have good paperwork from UK, she should be able to prove the legal funds. So she should be fine.

    Hi Steve, do you know why he has heard nothing? Do they communicate this to you as an agent? This is like 5 mounth additional waiting time.

    If you check the application and approval numbers, you see this 15% of rejections. But if you check the numbers of China applicants and the European applicants, you will see that 95% of European applications are granted. So far higher chance, as we have all the needed documentations in Europe, compared to China. Anyway, there are less than 10% Europeans of all applications. I think Jay should be OK. Just a matter of time.

    WA has some nice areas. I did like Perth quite much. Never went to Melbourne. Our plan is to move to Port Macquarie in NSW. Small town, nice landscape, good to raise kids. In the 3 step plan they actually have in step 3 the "discussion" to open flights for international students (big business) and long-term visa holders (maybe us). So it should not need a 4 step plan for us. Still, it seems that the application processing is delayed by several month. It might be good to sell assets in time, as long as they are on a good pricing level. We did the same and actually started selling assets a year ago. We transfered the money to Australia already. You can open up a Westpac bank account online. As soon as they tell you to invest, you have only 28 days to do so, unless you ask for more time. But sending the money before willl give you the security to choose the exchange rate when it is good, have the money outside the EUR (you never know ....) and you are ready for the investment.
