Apart from our medicals about to run out I also phoned DIAC in relation to my newborn and getting him on to our visa as adviced by McKlaut (Cheers), as I had not recieved a reply from a change of circumstances form I sent. This morning I recieved an e-mail stating that my son had been added to my visa application and to send photo,passport and more important asked for a medical examination. I thought they were not sending people for medicals or is it because we have done ours back in 2009. 16/03/10: I plucked up the courage to ring GSM processing centre on Sunday night, as we were going out of our minds whether or not we had a case officer or not, due to the e-mail requesting our new borns medical. Apparently we have not and the e-mail was a generic e-mail that shouldn’t have been sent or something like that. So we are none the wiser and a little sad now. Our Medicals ran out beginning of March so I imagine if we don’t hear anything before beginning of May we will probably have to re-do them all. Though the Lady on the phone said keep checking your e-mails at the end of the conversation so maybe there’s still hope or am I now reading too much into things now. 22/04/10: Recd email from CO requesting couple of docs and new police checks as ours have expired, they want us to validate by 10th September 2010.

    885 Visa and was on non-csl

    Hi, I had applied for 885 in Sept 2008. And due to on non-csl i was at the bottom of priority list as my occupation was 2231-79(NEC). As now csl has been revoked and new SOL has been introduced and I am not sure what to do to get me into the priority. Now I have got 3+ year experience in IT .net technologies. I was thinking to get me reassessed from ACS and get Analyst and Programmer Specialization. Could anyone please advice me that can I able to get the priority same as be on CSL if I able to get the positive assessment from ACS? Regards!
  3. Its been two and a half years in the making then finally 'Applicants Approved' and yes its a 175?
  4. Applied 06/05/2009 - nothing yet! Roll on 2012?
  5. Have been looking on all the other threads for any signs of Case Officers being assigned to applications CAT5 post 23-Sep-09 and as yet nothing. Just wanted to start this thread so that we all get alerted when the train eventually starts to move. Can anyone that has been assigned a CO post 23-9 (without ever having had one to this point) please let us know to give the rest of us a bit of hope.:wubclub: My status for all shows 'required' for all docs. They have them but it seems this status will not change till a CO is assigned:SLEEP:

    175 non-CSL - anyone?

    Hello, is anybody here in the same situation as me? Think I am all alone here.....:cry: Cazhoney
  7. Yup, sucks to be us right now – all the way to the CO stage only for them to shut the door on our noses on September 23. Seeing as we should be among the first to be processed out of the non-CSL mob, this thread is a place for us Group 5-ers with a CO to share info as and when we hear it rather than sift through more general threads with other groups at various processing stages. Aside from support and a smarter way to get relevant information, hopefully we can start some sort of a timeline for the group when things get moving again. Myself and the family? PCs and other docs all done and uploaded early September. Meds completed on September 14. However, they probably didn't get to Sydney in time as they were send via Berlin. So "still outstanding" on the Visa Status page. Most reliable source I've spoken to said 12 months, but likely first half of next year, for people like us in such an advanced processing position. All the best to you all, though. And hang in there, things could be a lot, lot worse. //Mach Visa: 175 submitted on 24/12/08; Occupation: Translator (2529-15); Applied for WA SS in April; 28/04/09 WA SS approved; Changed to 176 CO Allocation: Yes Date CO Allocated: 28/04/09 (extension granted because of pregnancy) Medicals conducted: 14/09/09 Health Requirements Finalised: Not yet...

    Visa granted today. 176 non-csl

    Hi all, We had our visa's granted yesterday,but been to excited to post on here!! I called our Agent yesterday and they said they was just sending our acceptence letter out..... I nearly fell of my chair?! We have to enter before 5th October 2010. After the carnage of 23rd September we can't quite believe it, but kept believing!! We are over the moon cos we'd lost hope and direction with it all and the thought of having to wait till 2012. I hope everyone else who has been in the same or similar situation gets some good news soon. Here's our timeline: 1st June 2008-Agent appointed. 31st oct 2008-vetasses taken (Bricklaying)-passed. 23rd Jan 2009-175 Independant visa lodged. March 2009? Knocked off CSL.(Applied for WA SS 176) 23rd July-176 State sponsorship Approved. 18th Aug-C/o Assigned. 14th Sept-Meds and Pc's Requested. 23rd Sept (am) Meds taken and Pc's cleared. 23rd Sept (pm) Dark times. 6.1.2010- Visa granted. I won't name C/o but he/she was from TEAM 2 if this helps? I sincerely hope DIAC have the common sense to continue to grant these visa's. I have'nt really posted much on Pio,but the value and knowledge of some of its members is amazing and has been a superb support for us. I would to personally thank Gollywobbler and the famous five for all there efforts.:notworthy: If i can be of any help or if anyone wants to know anymore info to help them,reply in this thread or feel free to PM me... Good luck to everyone else. Dan and Danielle :hug:
  9. I'm really frustrated with the DIAC and the way they are handling things!!! It seems that everytime there are some good news (a light in the tunnel) something happens and we are taking a few steps backwards. 25/03/2009 – Application received (175 Visa Skilled Independent) 19/06/2009 – Application being processed further (Changed to a 176 State Sponsorship non-csl) 04/08/2009 - CO request police clearance and medicals 08/09/2009 – Health requirements finalised 03/09/2009 – Overseas penal clearance certificates finalised 03/11/2009 – File removed from case officer due to the 23/09/2009 announcement. I took the liberty to e-mail Mr Wilden regarding our application and asked him if he can maybe shed some light on the status of our application. He e-mailed me with the following news: "I have confirmed that all the requirements for your application have been received but under the under the current processing priorities your application cannot be assessed further. While you provided further supporting documents in relation to their employment claims in August, this information had not been assessed when the current Ministerial Direction came into effect. What this means is that although you provided health and character clearances at the request of a case officer because the application is not decision ready it is not able to be assessed and finalised as part of the 'decision ready' group that are now being processed. It is possible that once the decision ready cases in this priority group are finalised then case officers will be able to look at applications like yours sometime in the new year but this will depend on the policy settings applicable to the GSM program when this point is reached." I mean how "decision ready" can an application be - now we get penalised when the CO's can't get an application to a decision ready stage in time - the "supporting documents in relation to employment claims" were provided very early in August... Is there still hope???:arghh: regards AC
  10. Dear all, Well I've always wondered what I'd write when our turn came around and now I'm clueless!!......HOORAY!!!!! (for starters I guess!!) Got the email from DIAC yesterday to ask if we can enter by Feb 2010. Agent replied to that this morning with a big YES OF COURSE THEY CAN!. Then we received a pre-grant letter at lunchtime (oz Time) today!! GET IN!!....Back of the net!! Timeline Non CSL General Electrician. 175 app lodged.................................12/09/08. Meds front loaded ............................14/10/08, UK PC's front loaded.........................27/11/08. SS received by VIC ..........................29/07/09 SS granted .....................................15/08/09 C/O assigned....................................09/09/09.. reqstd more work details and Oz PC...12/09/09..:arghh: Extra Work detail sent........................16/09/09 Oz PCC sent......................................25/9/09 PreGrant letter...................................08/12/09:jiggy: So yeah basically we are another 176 nonCSL that felt like we'd been kicked in the nuts back on Sept 23rd and now we're getting our visa!! Special note to McKlaut whom I know has had the same questions as we have had recently....... Yes, we DID front load our Meds without being asked and YES, they have expired already. Infact the date that they asked we enter Oz by is exactly 4 months after the meds expired. So chin up mate as yours should be tomorrow eh?! We are typing this from sunny Oz, as we came to see what we could sort out from within, so now we have to pop to another country to get the final stage (Visa Grant) complete. Our thanks go to this website, its Mods, George Lombard, Jamie Smith, the PIO members and their jovial banter that has kept spirits up during some dark and frustrating times ......and a VERY special mention to Gill and the crusaders. Your comittment and dedication is something to really be proud of and it made all POI members feel very lucky to have you on our side. I guess we'll never really know what caused Mr Evans to realise how unfair certain parts of his Sept 23rd plan was, but I like to think that your meeting at Australia house was key to making DIAC wake up to the fact that people are their business! Good luck everyone May the force be with you.....always Woody and OH......hehehe.....its Michelle!...she hates the OH label!!
  11. We are lucky I guess that we can do this, but it's now the only option for us. Hitting Oz end of Nov on a tourist visa. We'll have 3 months to secure some kind of sponsorship for one of us. I'll update as we go on this thread all the details. So far we've just emailed a bunch of agents in Oz explaining how our 176 is frozen and asked them for advice....most have asked for us to pop in for a chat (some want to charge for this 'chat') we will be keen to have a face to face agent (someone to hassle so they will want our case over and done with!!) even if it means more costs by not doing it on our own. We will probably have to go down the route of offering the potential employer that we pay for the fees involved. I'm a qualified spark (it was my job that was on the 176). OH is a hairdresser. I may have trouble due to the fact that my crappy Vetassess cert still means bugger all in the eyes of the Aus licensing departments......who'd wanna sponsor a 33yr old apprentice!! Oh well, at least we'll have an Australian Christmas! Watch this space! Woody
