  1. Hi everyone, I've lodged in a 485 application few months ago and i'm on a bridging visa A , and now i'm eligible to apply for a 885. I was wondering , will that be a problem if i lodge in for 885 and withdraw the 485 application after logding in the 885? will the withdrawal affects my 885 application? I'm doing this because the nomiated occupation on the 485 was nominated wrongly(2231-17 Software Designer instead of ACS assessed 2231-79 recent graduate), according to DIAC policy, we are unable to change the nomiated occupation after the application has been lodged. so i was thinking, before the 485 being refused i need to apply for 885 and withdraw the 485 application. need some urgent advice here.. many thanks

Currently, i'm taking another study on Advance Diploma Business management at APC (term 6, 2 more terms to go to finish 2 year study). My IELTS is 7. The questions i want to ask is : - Can i apply graduate skill visa 485 while my 176 visa is still ongoing? - Does my 2 degree related??because i'm planning to lodge for visa 485 if it's possible and that means i should take another skill assessment in that field,what kind of SOL will that be related with?? . - What is the minimum degree that is required for applying Visa 485?? - Do i have to wait untill i got my Advance Diploma?? or Certivicate IV? then lodge?? - Any suggestions/options?? I'm pregnant at the moment, and expecting birth on November 2010, what should i do if i still haven't got any news from the immigration??. I know i should forward my child birth certificate, but will that make any effect to my file to be checked quicker?? Please assist me with these enquiries, really appreciate it. Thanks

  6. Hi, I have a question regarding the graduate 485 visa. To quote off the DIAC website: However looking at the eligibility criteria it looks like you need 7 in IELTS to actually get the visa. If I get band 7 in IELTS, obviously my english woulnt require any improvement so shouldnt the visa allow for those people with poor english (and getting below 7 required for GSM) since one of its purpose is to allow for international students with poor english to improve their language skills?

    Visa 485 How long??

    Hi all, I will be applying for Provisional skill assessment of Job Ready Test, but I was in concern that what would be the waiting period of TR Visa 485 once I get positive provisional assessment and apply for that visa. I have heard that currently students are waiting for more than a year to get TR. So at the end, is it like I have to wait for 1-2yrs to get 485 visa and then start with second step of Job Ready programme ? So eventually it will take ages to apply for PR:wacko: Any advice please...................... Thanks in advance.

  10. HI, Just got the acknowledgement from DIMIA,that they received my partners application. Question> How long is the processing time(for spouse),as I believe they assess on 2 grounds,your medicals and police checks. I have called DIMIA numerous time,and most if not all officers have said that it wouldnt take long since they(spouse) are being assessed in 2 grounds(mentioned above) Can somebody throw some light here and tell me how long it took(under the 485 visa) to get their visa approved. Thanks, Mac

    485 help---thanx

    I attached my document through online attaching additional document menue for my 485 application, but when I checked my application processe, all the materials are still required, is it OK?

Or i need to fill the form of incorrected answer from online, coz I am afraid it affact my processing priority? Thank u, guys!
  15. Hey all, please give me some expert advice here on my situation. I am currently holding a student visa, just graduated and have all my documents ready to apply for the Skilled – Graduate (Temporary) visa (subclass 485). However, I am planning to include a partner, my girlfriend (3years relationship) into the Subclass 485 visa being her as a secondary applicant while me as a main applicant for this visa. My girlfriend is currently here in Aussie too holding a Work and Holiday visa (Subclass 462) and her visa has a 'condition 8503' on it. I would like to ask whether is it possible for her to be the secondary applicant for the subclass 485? If can't, what are the other solutions I can look into? I really appreciate all your opinions and all your tips. Thanks loads

    485 - Timeline worries

    Hi All, I have lodged my temporary residency file (subclass 485 - online) in Mid Jan-2009. Now, it's been almost 8th month of being on bridging visa:arghh:. Any one here who has also lodge 485 in Jan-2009 and got the TR visa? I want to know currently which month of file is opening for 485 applications. Thanks, tekmis
  19. hello. i'm applying the 485 Temporary visa online and when I enter my VISA NUMBER, it said " The value you have entered in the field 'Visa number' is not a correct format". I know that there will be a LETTER following the visa number, such as. V8023745156X. But I applied my previous visa online so the Visa No. on the Visa Granted Letter that IMMI email to me is just 80237451566. not any letters in it. I'm not sure what's wrong. SHould I go to get my visa label & see what is my real visa no. ? thanks.

    176 to 485/885?

    Hi All, I applied for 175 in Jan 2008, submitted medical in Feb 2009 and my status is "awaiting further processing". My Occupation was in SOL. In the meantime I finished a MS in IT in Brisbane, got 8.5 in IELTS. Now Im wondering if I should wait for the 175 outcome or apply again for 485 or 885 or switch to 176SS. 1. Should I wait for it or 885 would be faster? 2. If I apply for 485, does my 175 application become void? 3. can any one kindly give me any url/forms that i should be reading for 176SS? I would be really greatful if you can kindly provide me an answer. Thanks in advance.

    Is this possible?

    Hi guys, okay, have spent the last 4 hours looking at the DIAC website and various Google sites and think (praying, oh please please please...) that I may have found a possibility. A South Australian Provisional Sponsorship (475/487) as an office manager. It is under the provisional sponsorship but I don't know what that means! Is it I can apply, as I have a Certificate in Management, which I think is equivalent to a level 3 certificate needed as well as 3 years experience as a receptionist and the past 2 years as an Executive PA at CEO/Board level and we will have to stay there for 2 years as per a state sponsored visa? Do you think I qualify? Please help!
  22. Hi, I have a very complicated situation here and I really need help and suggestion from anyone.:unsure: I am on a 485 at the moment and it is expiring in November 2009. For me to apply for an 885 and be approved, I would need to work in the job nomination I was assessed under, for 12 months. All my documents and conditions are all OK, except for the work experience that I am having at the moment. I am working in a field that is not closely related to the job nomination I was assessed under which was management consultant. I am currently in Human Resources. This is giving me a massive headache because I am in a risk of not getting my PR. I have a few alternatives I can think of relating with this but I need help in clarifying a few things and I need some opinions. From my research, I know that I cannot re-assess myself under Personnel officer (HR) and use this to apply for my 885 as I cannot change my job nomination for visa 885 since I applied for my 485 under Management consultant. (Anyone can verify this?) So......... Since I don't want to leave Australia.... I am thinking of re-assessing myself under Human Resources and applying under 175 (offshore) right now, and close my 485 expiring, I will apply for an 885 so after my 485 expires, I can still stay in Australia under bridging visa while my 885 is being put in process (until it gets rejected - but i know that it takes a while until the application goes to a case officer). Then if worse comes to worst, I might have to leave Australia while still waiting for the 175 to be approved, but by then, at least the application will already be halfway and is getting closer to approval. Can we actually apply for another visa while one is still under process? How many visas can we apply for at the same time? Please spare me some of your thoughts and if there is anything that I have missed on, or any rules that will stop me from implementing my plan. For any replies, I really appreciate your help. Cheers.
