    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.

    Hi, AYL, I would not say so. 188B is very complex. But the official statistics of applications and grants is very postive. I suggest, more then 80% are granted, probably more than that. To prepare the paperwork for 188B takes a lot of effort. Depends on your case and the country of origion. You will need 2-3 years for this visa. Good luck.

    Great. Congratulations! Not sure, if 188A is in the same queue as 188B. But seems to be quite snychrone right now. See you down under! Pls. start sharing your details, after you were following us for almost 2 years. We are very eager to know how the application proceeds. Espeacially if they grant the visa or if they wait until the travel restrictions are relieved.

    Can you use sources which were quired after the application date? For example, your company is an asset in the SALP. And the company generates, after application date, an earn out. Can this earn out be used without a new SALP? Just with a proof of the earn out documentation.

    Hm, if you ask for my opinion, I do not think this will make any difference. I think in Australia is the principle of equal rights. So how they would argue that they give preference to applicants of other countries? They would need a "medical reason" to do so. But China is officially more or less free of Covid19. So Australia could ease up the travel restrictions for China before Europe, USA and other countries. So it might be the oposit. China applicants can travel before others, so they get the visa granted earlier than others. Even if the media is negativ about China, it is still a hugh economic factor for Australia - students, exports ... And economic support is needed in most economies these days.

    Based on my immi agent it has to come from the assets you have shown in your application and you have to prove it.

    Updates you will find here: https://covid19.homeaffairs.gov.au/ Right now we all cannot enter Australia. And there is no timeline when they will change it. At least, they started to loosen the travel restrictions withhin Australian states. A good sign, but I suppose, that the travel restrictions for us will still last a few month.

    As I understand, the medical is valid 12 month and the case officer can prolong it up to 18 month. So if the medical is older than 18, you need to do it again. What I do not understand is, that they tell you to do the medical withhin 28 days after you application. Knowing the processing time is +20 month. This way you must do the medical twice. Why they do not inform you to do the medical after 12 month of the waiting time? And could a new applicant just wait and do the medical after 6 month istead of 28 days? Would his have any effect on the processing time? At least it would save them the 2nd medical test.
