  1. Hello to everyone who is applying for one of the above State/Territory general skilled migration visa classes. I had some very encouraging news from Gollywobbler AKA Gill re how quickly applications with a successful State & Territory Nomination were being allocated to a case officer. I asked the same question of our agent ASA consultants who said there was no real evidence of things speeding up. I would like to start this thread for people who have appled for one of the above visa classes after the 1st Jan 2009 and if people can update it when they have any news it would help all who are still anxious on processing times. Thanks to all
  2. Just looked at this weeks processing times for 176 visa subclass and its still moving slowly(or not moving as the case may be). At this rate it would take anything up to 1,885 days before getting a case officer as my application was lodged on 14th January 2008 and its only moved on 4 days out of the last 65 days. Confused or what!
  3. Hi all, I am new to the forums but think it is a great way to discuss the issues surrounding migration. It can feel like you are the only way who finds the process so difficult and time consuming ...but reading the posts I know I am not alone!:smile: Me and my new husband final submitted our visa application on Friday we have both studied here for the last three years and can't bear the thought of having to leave. As a teacher I am the primary applicant and my husband is down as the secondary applicant. After months of gathering all the paperwork together we have been able to submit the application only for a new dilemma to arise this week. I received a confirmation of receipt e-mail and a bridging visa yesterday. The receipt said any secondary applicant will be listed below. And his name wasn't there. Of course i rang the dept straightaway but they can't see what the problem is and are referring it to another dept so in the meantime we just have to wait. I am just a bit concerned because he will also need to be issued with a bridging visa soon to stay legal! I have spent hours and hours reading the info on the website and as far as i can tell there doesn't seem to be any reason why he is not eligible to be included as a secondary applicant - so fingers crossed its just an error! Was just wondering if anyone else had experienced a similar problem. I know I sound like a total stress head but we have wanted this visa for so long that I am a nervous wrecK!!:arghh: Gemma & Nopi
