  1. Dear all, I would like to ask if it helps CO to confirm his/her decision if a 457 visa application is lodged before the nomination is approved? My situation is my boss lodged the nomination application in late May and received a request for more information in late June; we then have been waiting until now. My boss did not pass me the TRN as he is used to having the visa application lodgement only after the nomination is approved. The thing is, I read the following latest newsletter update on an agency website: Processing times and changes to caseload allocation The Department is undertaking a number of steps in an effort to reduce processing times. Under one such initiative, 457 processing will move to a “global allocation model” across the Department’s five processing centres. Associated nominations and visa applications will be allocated to one case officer at the same time. This is a move designed to improve consistency of decision-making as well as improving efficiency. So I wonder will nominations without relevant visa application noted are being put aside until the IMMI receives it, so that the CO can assess the case with all information at once. Grateful for your advice and comments. Many thanks, kieu
  2. Thought I'd start a post to see whereabouts people were in applications, keep track of any updates, and of course vent any frustrations! Hopefully there are a few of us on this forum and it would be interesting to hear how people are getting on. I applied 22nd jan, online. No correspondence yet, so have been uploading more evidence and info that we didn't have at the time of application, e.g superannuation beneficiary, and soon joint private health care. Has anyone has contact with DIBP yet?
  3. Hello peeps. Have lodged my side of 457 application after an agonising wait for TRN number from sponsor - had not realised they had not even got a sponsor status until I have completed everything for the skills assessment :arghh:! Not impressed to say the least. Only got 9 weeks left before I have to register in person at AHPRA so panic mode definitely on. Rant over. In preparation, am wondering if you lot have any recommendation on which one to choose for visa medicals (particularly one with quick turnaround time??). We are in Cambridgeshire so closest would be London/Essex ( Knightsbridge or Spire Brentwood), or Birmingham (Handsworth or Spire Little Aston). What would be the expected turnaround results from the medicals, do any of you know? Had read some issues with one in Birmingham in another forum (apparently very slow with miscommunications etc). We don't mind paying more as long as we don't have to play the unnecessary waiting game again. Thanks in advance for any reply x
  4. Hi there, I applied for RSMS (RCB +nomination+187visa)on 26 jun 14 in Melbourne.Employer and MA's decision to lodge altogether!! my occupation is retail manager got 4 years experience. RCB got approved in 2 weeks. But as usual like all of us no news about CO. but my concern is previously I applied 885 and got rejected due to IELTS!!! got IELTS now. So I lodge offshore and currently I m in overseas. is there anyone got similar case? please share ur experience! Please let me know ur timeline. Thanks heaps!!!!
  5. Employer nomination approved, 457 visa + defacto partner (both British) application lodged 11th June with MA, still waiting for any kind of status change on the website, medicals not requested (yet!), maybe they can see I keep checking the status online thrice a day (at least) so are going to take their time!! Got flights on hold departing 5th August which need to be booked by 16th July as supposed to be starting job in Sydney on 13th August! So much to organise and so little time to do it in the closer the departure date gets ... just want approval now! Hate being in limbo! Lol! 11/06/2013 Application received - processing commenced 11/06/2013 Application fee received Anybody had any experience or able to provide a 457 approval time frame for the Sydney office? MA says recently has been under 4 weeks, which for us should be by the end of next week (hopefully!) ... :SLEEP:

    AIQS Assessment Timeline

    Hi just wondering how long it took for feedback from AIQS please. I know it says 2 months on the website but am hoping they will be quicker:-) Hubby sending it off tomorrow.
  8. Hi Guys, It would be great to hear from anyone who has also lodged their Prospective marriage Visa (subclass 300) offshore and get a better idea of timelines. February 12th 2013- Lodged my application (everything expect for police and medical checks as I was advised this would be requested by the CO later) February 14th - Payment taken from my credit card. I believe it is now a 10 day wait to be assigned a case officer and then a much longer wait until the visa is potentially approved. Is anyone else doing this at around the same time as me? My wedding is in October this year, praying it comes through pretty swiftly!! Thanks H x

    New Timeline Monitor Site

    Hi Everyone, I am a user of this site and the timeline spreadsheets as I am a 175 CSL applicant. I saw a need for a site that could be dedicated to that so went ahead and whipped one up. It is much like beupdate but without all the ads and hopefully a bit more user friendly. I just got it online yesterday so it is sure to have a few bugs out of the gate but i'll get them sorted as we find them. I managed to write a script that imported the 175 and 176 visa's from the spreadsheet so everyone will be on there. None are password protected right now but if you update them you can add your own password. Anyway, hopefully you all find it useful as it is only worthwhile if everyone uses it and updates it. Have a look, i'd love to hear your feedback! aussietimeline.com | Australian Visa Application Timeline Tracker -- Grant BTW. I have tried to reach out to Drew a few times regarding the spreadsheets but haven't heard back?

  14. Hello I have a few questions that I couldn't really find answers for, not in the booklet nor the web site which is not the easiest to navigate around 1. What is really the difference between visa 489, 189 and 190? 2. If my husbands visa 489 was granted, do we have to move to AU in a specific time? do I have to join him with my baby within the timeline? 3. In skillselect, to which type of visa priority is given, in other words which type of visa timeline is shorter? 4. For my husband skill assessment, 3 Authorities are suggested, Does that mean that any of them is ok? he's an accountant. 5. My 2 uncles are already in Australia with permanent residency, Sydney and Epping (NSW), can I go under visa subclass 176? Thank you

    Vetassess October 2012

    Hi guys, About to embark on a skills assessment for the 186 ENS visa. Highest Qualification : Masters in Marketing (sydney Uni) Work experience Post Qualification (Masters) : 19 months fulltime - Marketing / Advertising industry (1 year 7 months) Proposed docs : Skill assessment form Master degree certificate Masters degree transcripts Statement of service / employer reference Tax return Payslip Employment contract Originals (if copies then notarised by justice of peace) The above clearly demonstrates I am in the industry and job closely linked to my area of study. Do I need to submit my undergraduate study/work experience PRIOR to Masters(highest qualification?) I don't want to slow down the assessment with unnecessary information that is redundant. Cheers Bonza
  16. Hi All ....:wub: My Name is Gill (from Wigan (UK) and i am currently awaiting a reply for my Subclass 300 Visa Application. We have booked our wedding for the 14th April 2013. I spent a full 3 months collecting all our documents and data (statements, police check and evidence of our ongoing relationship) before sending the completed application on the 1st August 2012. Within 1 week we were asked for me to complete my MEDICAL examination to which we did immediately (they received the results on the 17th August 2012). We have had no requests for further information and are under the impression that the immigration are happy with all the documents sent. I am just wondering if anyone knows the approximate timescale from the MEDICAL to getting an answer? ANXIOUS is an underestimation!!! :twitcy:

    Why isn't the line moving?

    We are in the flagged occupations list (ICT BA) and anxiously watching the processing speed. Why is DIAC stuck in June for so long???? Any ideas???
  19. Hi All, I have applied for ACS review/reassessment of 9 months of my recent work experience. Previously I was not able to submit any documentation for this work experience, hence ACS had given me 'Not Assessed' for it. Now I have submitted a reference letter from my supervisor. So this is a case of new documents made available rather than any complicated code change. Any idea how much time the review/reassessment will take. My review/reassessment documents reached ACS on 27th Jan 2012 (received acknowledge from them) and with assessor since 3rd Feb. Not sure how long the assessor will take, If anybody has any idea on recent timeline it will help. I have already taken NSW sponsorship, which will expire on 9th March, so need the review/reassessment before that so that I can file PR. If anybody has any suggestions on this, those are most welcome. ACS lost my review/reassessment documents sent on Jan 12, and they gave me 3 more weeks to submit fresh ones, which reached them on 27th Jan. Can I request them to speed up as they had lost the documents once. Awaiting replies :dull: Supjit

    Cat 5's to Cat 3's Timeline

    Due to the recent movement of some applications, I thought I would start a thread to help those who are moving from cat 5 to cat 3. This may help as a guidline to those awaiting CO's. Name: Date of Visa application: Nationality: High/Low Risk: Trade/profession: Visa type: Date SS granted: Sponsoring State: Date Skill back on SMP: Onshore/offshore: Medicals submitted: Police check submitted: Date CO assigned: Date visa granted: Thank you Taniaholmes for the idea :biggrin: Here is our timeline Red without a CO orange with a CO Green for Visa Grant
  21. We had it all planned out nicely......or so we thought!!! We have wanted to move to Oz for some time now and planned to make the move in 2013 when I complete my studies for my degree - this plan hasn't changed for the last 3 and a half years! We tried to approach this sensibly and began researching on the internet, during which we discovered that the visa application was quoted as being 12-18 months for a 176 PR visa. We planned our timeline for a move in August / September 2013 and not having to validate before purchasing the much wanted one-way tickets. So far everything has gone to plan, the skills assessment, IELTS and the state sponsorship are all in bag and inline with our original timeline, the problem comes with the next step.........applying for the visa. The 12-18 months has now reduced to 2-3 months (?), I have seen one POI member got theirs in 2 weeks!!! Most people will think that this is great but to us its a nightmare. We have to apply for the visa by the end of March or we will lose our state sponsorship, but the current processing times will more than likely mean we have an Initial Entry Date way before we are able to leave meaning the only option would be for a costly validation trip that we can't afford!!! :arghh: :arghh::arghh: :mad::mad::mad: :arghh::arghh::arghh: VERY ANNOYING!!! Does this effect anybody else in this way or is everyone just pleased to get the golden ticket ASAP???

  24. hi Do anybody have idea about how long it takes for state sponsorship to be granted. I just wanted to go for one. I am from India and belongs to 261313 (Software Engineer). Thanks in advance Cheers.
  25. Hi I lodged my online application for a GSM 176 visa with family sponsorship on the 16/03/2011 for WA. The E-Business Systems online application progress checker says 'Processing commenced' is 4 and a half months normal to have heard nothing back? I'm worried I should have done something and maybe it's being held up. Does anyone have any experience of this who can help? Thanks
