    Investor Visa Subclass 188b

    Same for me. Lodged in November 2018, no update so far. Very strange, if you calculate the data of Jay, who lodged in 20/09/2018 and got a case officer in 27/04/2020. Lodged 7 weeks before me, but got case officer already 13 weeks ago.

    But does 188B counts to GSM? I think not, right? Still it seems they are not working at applications these days.

    I did and they told me, that immi is processing now visa from 08.2018. Which I think, is not correct, as processing Jays application was about 2 month ago and she applied in 09.2018. Immi is not responding to questions like this, so we just need to wait, and wait and wait. Due to Corona, they are not granting any visa, so I suppose in 2019/2020 the quota was not reached. Personally I think it is all delayed by Corona and travel restrictions.

    We all are desperate to go. And I think we do bring assets and skills with us, which will help the Australian economy. Still wondering, why immigration is not more service orientated and keeps us informed about processing status etc. The investors are only small number of total immigrants, but I assume we bring a good benefit for them.

    We are still waiting for a case officer for our 188B application. Close to 20 month waiting time so far.

    The borders in Australia are supposed to be closed till end of 2020 for tourist. But the minister Simon Birmingham said, that for international students, business and investors the borders should open earlier. I think that are relatively good news for our visa class. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-06-17/borders-likely-closed-until-next-year-coronavirus-restrictions/12365978

    NZ is free of Corona, Australia plans to be free of Corona in July. This might let them go to step 3 or their opening plan. In step 3 they will consider international student to return to Australia, so this could open the boarders for temorary visa holders. 188B is a temporary visa. Anybody has any news from their application and processing?

    I do not think that there is anything related to the state regarding the unsuccess rates. As soon as you have a sponsoring from the state, the central immigration center (Adelaite for all other countries or HongKong for China) will process your application. Therefore, there is no more decision taken by the states, only by the immigration centers. So you should not consider these rate by state. Choose the state where you want to live. For the next visa 888 you have to apply again at state level and prove you are happily integrated in the community.

    Yes. Numbers are per fiscal year. But waiting time is between 1.5 and 2 years, so the ones lodged 2018 are processed in 2020.

    Hi RSkea, great news. So they did not ask you to do the investment of AUD 1.5m by now? So they wait with this step as well until the travel restrictions are removed? Or did they ask you to do the investment already?

    Sure. If you can prove, that the money on the new bank account is of the assets/ sources of the SALP, then you should be able to use the money. So if you have, for example, stocks. And withhin the waiting period, you sell the stocks, you still can use this money for the investment, as you can prove the sale. Same if you move money from one account to another. But I am quite sure you need to be able to prove the transfer from on of the orginal assets in the SALP.

    I did this a few month ago via my immi agent. And the normal relay was, that they do not comment single cases. But in your case, maybe it is only on hold until they open flights again. So it might be a good idea to contact your case officer and check, why the case is still not decided. I do not think is would harm.
