  1. Hi - I live on the Sunny Coast. Had test on 10th June (100%) and immi account changed to approved on 7th August. Happy days!!! Questions 1. How long until you receive a note in the post re the approval and next steps? I know that comms do not come via immi account once approved which seems strange? 2. How long before we hear about ceremony dates? Any one have any similar experience? Thanks Andy
  2. Hello Everyone Could Hume City Members comment on this forum as to how long after Approval we have to wait for ceremony? Kindly Share your timeline Thanks
  3. Hi, new member here. My apologies if some of these questions have already been answered. Im filling out, day by day, our 309 Visa to return to Australia. My husband is an Australian Citizen by birth, I am British. I have some confusion as to who can fill out 888 forms. I thought it was only Australian permanent residents or Citizens. But I have been told that my family and friends in the UK can fill them out also. Is this correct? If it is not, what are the alternatives? And, I am in a bit of debt with my bank in Australia. This is due to the speed in which I had to leave the country as to not overstay. Do you have to pay your debt off completley or can you prove you are repaying it in manageable amounts in order to have your visa approved? Thank you in advance!!!
  4. I have searched this forum with a fine tooth comb but can't find anything........... Does anyone know how long immigration normally take to approve your application once you return to Australia if been away offshore??

    Visa approval ratio

    Is anyone have a data about the 190 visa approval ratio for last years, like 1000 applications issued sponsorship 900 applications approved by immigration dept......
  6. 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.

    Second year visa wait

    Hey Everyone, I applied for my second year visa on the 19th of Dec and haven't heard anything. My boyfriend and I worked on the same farms for the same time and he got his visa approval back straight away. The only question we answered differently was that I had been outside of the UK for more than 6months. Is it because I out this that it is taking longer? We wanted to fly back out on the 23rd of Jan bit worried it will take ages as some people have said they are still waiting 2/3months later? My mum is flying out in the 4th of Feb so I hope I get it! Please help with any other similar stories or why you think it is taking so long? I am really stressing!

    WHV Approval

    Hi! My partner and I recently applied separately for WHVs (in the last week of February roughly), I'm from the UK, he is from the Rep. of Ireland. I got my approval through within 48 hours. However, after a week they asked him to supply a copy of his old passport (from when he was previously in Australia when he was 2yo). He did so, and they thanked him and said they can continue to process his application. Its now been 4 weeks, and the only time frame the bureau gave us was "weeks to months', before he gets a response. Additionally, I have also been to Oz before when I was younger, but was never asked for my old passport. Has anyone (from Ireland or otherwise) ever been in this position, and know when I can expect to hear back from them, or why his application has taken such a different route? They said they have no reason to reject his application, but theres some nervousness that makes me wonder why they are taking so long! We are very keen to book tickets, look for accommodation and start sending off CVs etc, but the wait means that everything is getting delayed (and more expensive) as we are planning on going in September. Thanks
  9. 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:
  10. Does anyone have any experience of secondary teaching in NSW high schools? I know that you initially have to do a load of paperwork to get approval - I've been through that and wasn't given it and am so now doing further study which the NSW Ed Dept has said will be sufficient. What I would like to know is what happens on the pre-employment induction course and then what happens next? I have heard that once you have approval to teach, you don't apply for a job at a school but have to go to whatever school you are sent to by the department and that could be far from where you live and usually not very pleasant - is this true? If so how do you get a job in a school you want to work in? Also I did apply for jobs when I was in Australia in private schools and lack of HSC experience was a recurrent problem - is this sorted out by doing pre-employment course? As far as wages go, do they take into consideration the years that you have been teaching and put you on the equivalent step on the pay scale? I've also been told that with vacancies, Australians are usually given the jobs before migrants and also if there are to be job cuts, it's the migrants who go first, anyone know anything about that? One more thing, is the current economic climate affecting jobs in the public sector, such as teaching? Sorry for the bomardment of questions, we're planning to return to Oz at the end of the year to have another go at migration, after a pretty disastrous first attempt - largely caused by problems with my job.

    nomination approval. How long?

    Does anyone have any idea how long 457 nomination approvals are taking at the moment? My sponsor has been accepted as a business sponsor and now just waiting for DIAC to accept nomination. We have already submitted our e457 application and immi shows processing has commenced. We have uploaded most documents but are waiting on a couple of stat decs and a court search from our solicitor who currently has taken 4 weeks and has only just (in the last week) applied to the courts for a search to be done. Any help much appreciated :smile:
  12. Hello I know there may have been heaps of questions similar to this asked previously - but i couldn't find a response specific to this question.. I'm just wondering if anyone has recent experience of the processing time for Employers to be approved for sponsorship? I am transferring my current 457 visa to a new employer. I've been informed by immigration that it can take up to 4 weeks, but has anyone experienced it to be a quicker/longer process? This waiting game is a killer! Any information on people's experiences would be much appreciated. Thanks, S
  13. hi everyone. i received an advice from ahpra to change my current application as an enrolled nurse to REgistered nurse because i am now eligible to apply as an RN because of the in principle approval. what do they mean by that? thank you ;))
  14. Help! How long does import approval take. We are leaving 24 Nov and now officially panicking as I hadn't realised this needed doing in advanceand haven't done it yet! Will we make it??

  16. Hi everyone, I'm currently in oz on a 457 sponsorship visa but am looking to change jobs. I know that I don't need to re-apply, just need nomination approved... BUT, my new employer has sponsored in the past but they have let their approval expire. Just wondered if anyone knows roughly how long the process for THE EMPLOYER to be approved as a sponsor takes?? (I can only find info on how long the whole initial 457 application process takes) Thank you, Jen :-)
  17. Hi all, We will be arriving in OZ in early 2012 on an employer sponsored 457 temporary residency visa that is valid for 4yrs and the employer has agreed to sponsor us PR after the 2yr qualifying period as per DIAC rules. Will we still need FIRB approval before we can buy a house? We are dead keen on buying as soon as we arrive is possible.
  18. Hi All, Just wanted to know more about the Skilled Health Waiver Approval timeframe. It has been 9 months now since i lodged my subclass 856 visa application. The last message i got from my CO is that, the submission report has been sent to Canberra. Now, im not sure how long this will take. Hope there's someone who could enlighten me more about the approval process for SHW.
  19. Hi everyone, I need ur help. I got my PR as my occupation was in SMP n I already moved to that state. but I didnt get job in same occupation as I tried hard.

  20. Anyone have any idea how long this takes ? Didnt send mine in till August. I go in 3 weeks and still not heard anything.
  21. Hi, I'm new to this so just a little question. We have just sent our forms to WA for state sponsorship approval, does anyone know how long this is taking just now?? I'm in a bit of a panic now as with the rules changing on 1st July I'm a bit worried we will have missed the cut off date if we don't get approval back before then so we can put in final application. We are going through my husband's trade and it will be more difficult to get in from his trade after 1st July. If anyone knows or has experience lately, any advice would be helpful :rolleyes:
  22. We are two weeks to the day into our 457 visa process. We took out private medical insurance on the 23rd of June which starts on the 8th of August. We decided on this date as it would be the absolute earliest we could have feasibly left 2 weeks for visa processing (we wish) and 4 weeks notice with current employer. My question is, if my medical insurance doesn't start til the 8th of august, will this delay the visa approval process until it does?
  23. Hi guys can I just ask am I able to work already if ever my state sponsorship gets approved? Or still do I need to apply for permanent residency after I get my state sponsorship approval? how does it work? Sorry im just clueless about this migration thing since its my first time to apply for migration overseas. any reply would be greatly appreciated thanks! :spinny:
