Hello everybody, first of all let me apologise If I have started a new topic where I shouldn't have, I have never used forums before. . I submitted the nomination and application for 186 direct entry on Jan 21 2017 as a graphic post press trades-person. I have been waiting for 13 months and my lawyers have not been contacted once ! The only thing my lawyers always say is to wait. This uncertainty is nerve wrecking , also this occupation apparently is no longer on the list. Does anyone knows if this affects the application and / or processing times? Do we know if the processing times for 186 direct entry vary according to occupation.Thanks in advance for any info.. Any advice would be appreciated. I have posted this message in other topics but I don't have not received one reply, so my best guess is that It is in the wrong section of the forum. This wait is really affecting me and my dependant.
Hey guys, At this moment I am trying to make sense like everybody else about all the visa changes. I was wondered if somebody has a bit information about the following. As we all know hairdressing has gone to the short skilled list. My employer was going to sponsor me for a 457. But because of the recent changes and no outlook on a PR. we are deciding to go for a Direct entry 186 instead. I have only 3 months left on my study visa now. And with all of the extra requirement like extra skills assessments I has a very little time frame to collect this all as well. I would apply for the 186 in September 2017. They say that a 186 takes about a year to process. So what happens in march 2018 as they not allow the short skilled list for direct entry 186 Anymore. Does anybody has any idea about this ? I try to call immigration the other day but was unsuccessful to get anybody on the line. And did anybody completed a TRA and a extra prl in less then 3 months ?? Love to read your comments! Thanks
