I applied through a migration agent who advised a Skilled - Sponsored (VE176) visa, and it was lodged on the 30/10/2008 (I am categorized as a Life Scientist, which is not on any list). I am going through the family sponsor route, but have heard nothing at all barring a few e-mails from my agent, since the date of the application. Since then a whole lot has changed as we all know. I knew it would take a while, and figured that after 3 years was up I'd look at it again. Now, the status of my application on the Australian website, is marked 'processing commenced'. I am going to contact the agent tonight, but wanted to know if there were any applicants in a similar situation in terms of application duration of 3 years. I know most have changed to State sponsored and I may have to look at this. Any comments gratefully received. PJ
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatMy Australian Immigration Medicals have been completed and finalized. All documents have been met. Expecting Visa Grant any time. I found out today that my wife is pregnant. What should i do now? Should I inform the case officer or just wait for the grant. What options do I have as my initial entry date is expected to be 1st week of June 2012 and my Wife's due date is Mid April 2012. Cant go immediately for visa validation due to my job commitments. Was planning to have a visa validation trip in Feb - March 2012 but wife wont be able to travel then. I think that if i wait until our baby is born, we wont be able to get the baby's visa after birth in April in time to make it there before first week of June. Please respond urgently, because if i get the grant letter in a couple days, i wouldnt have too much options. Look Forward to prompt responses. PLEASE HELP....
