    Mistakes in EOI

    Hi everyone, I have received visa invitation for SC 189. But I realized, after invitation is received, that there are following 2 mistakes in my EOI: 1. Country of birth is mentioned incorrect. 2. Starting date of employment is mentioned incorrect (This employment is partly claimed and luckily points for this part are not claimed). Unfortunately, this was my last chance to get an invitation because after that round my age points are reduced. Now the question is, how should I proceed for Visa Application? Should I correct both mistakes while submitting Visa Application? Both mistakes do not affect my points.
  2. I've been keeping up with everyone's experiences and thought it time I shared mine. I'm travelling on a 457 as a secondary applicant, my partner is an academic who has been offered a job in Melbourne. We lodged the application ourselves after the visa nomination was granted. In retrospect we should have applied earlier as I didn't realise until after it was lodged that you can submit the application before nomination has been granted! Submitted all the documents at the time of lodging, paid the fee and waited. As a healthcare worker I knew that I would need a full medical, x ray and blood tests and arranged this just after submission. My OH who has a medical condition was requested to have a medical later. Here's the time line so far: Application submitted 29/05/11 Fee paid 29/05/11 Health requirements outstanding (person 2) 29/05/11 Medical examination required 29/05/11 Medical results received 23/06/11 X ray results received 23/06/11 Hep B, Hep C, HIV results received 28/06/11 Application processed further 14/06/07 Further information required 14/06/11 Health requirements outstanding (person 1) 14/07/11 Further medical results referred 14/07/11 Blood tests referred 14/07/11 The question I do have is what is the difference between my medicals results that are shown as received (submitted through ehealth) and my OH's who are shown as referred (sent by snail mail). Have mine been looked at yet or is that still to come?:realmad:
  3. Hi folks, I received an email from immigration SA today (2 Nov 2010) informing my SS application was approved. My ANZSCO is 261313 Software Engineer. I just lodged my 176 online visa application with DIAC. Will upload all the documents tomorrow. My timeline: 11-May-2010 ACS applied 20-May-2010 IELTS L7R7W6S6.5 25-Aug-2010 ACS approved (261313) 11-Sep-2010 IELTS L7R7.5W6.5S6 27-Sep-2010 SA SS applied 02-Nov-2010 SA SS granted:jiggy: 02-Nov-2010 176 lodged xx-xxx-2011 176 granted
  4. Hi all, I just received my pre-grant letter for an offshore 176 application, requesting travel itinery (we are in perth, but hoping to fly to Bali for a week) DIAC are saying I must visit the Australian embassy in Denpasar to have our passports "evidenced" basically, have a label attached. The time scale for this is minimum 8 working days. This throws a spanner in our works, as my wife has a job that really only allows a week off. we would be away more like 2 weeks. I've read somewhere on here that visa labels are not a requirement, and that you only need to re-enter once your visa has been granted for you visa to be validated. Any help or advice appreciated. Cheers Mark
  5. We have a dilemma, I have been offered two possible job offers in SA however our VISA is a 176 for WA..... Can I legally move and take up employment in SA even though my Visa is WA sponsored? I have read and been informed that I am only morally obliged to reside and work in WA....and can live / work anywhere. Is this true? Many thanks in advance....
  6. Hi All, Was finishing up in the office this arvo, 5.15pm an email comes in from immi with the pre-grant letter attached - couldn't believe it, the perfect end to the week! Just got to book a trip overseas now and then return to Aus a permanent resident. Stats: Visa Type: 175 Occupation: Accountant (CSL) Application lodged: 13/10/2009 Police checks: Aus and UK checks front loaded at time of application Medicals: had medicals with HSA week before Christmas 09 Pre-grant letter received: 08/01/2010 Days from application to pre-grant: 88 Weird thing with medicals is that my partners medical results were sent to us at our home address and were received yesterday; i haven't even posted them out to DIAC yet. Receipt and booking confirmation was scanned and attached to application before Christmas. Seems they are just assuming that medicals will be OK and going ahead with visa grant. This has happened so much sooner than I had expected. Good luck to everyone going through the process; my heart goes out to those who fell victim to the 23/09 announcement.
  7. Hi, We received our visa yesterday it's a GSM 176 Skilled visa with sponsorship from my brother in Perth. My wife is pregnant which was noted in our visa application. Can anyone tell me what we must do when regarding our visa when our new baby is born? Must we get a passport and send the details to our Case Officer to have the baby added to our visa? Thanks Scott
  8. Can anyone provide any insight, I lodged a 176 sponsored by a family relative application a year ago to receive "Notification of invalid application" email. This is the relevant part of the response from DIAC: This application was made as an Internet application on 5 September 2010. Form 1277 was provided on 13 September 2010 however the sponsorship was entered into on Form 1277 after the day in which the application was made. As the applicant has not met the sub item requirement by providing Form 1277 at time the application was made, this application is invalid under Item 1135(3)(ca)
  9. Hi, I applied for my TRA Assessment on 19/9/11 and still says awaiting assessment. Has anyone applied after this date and received a result? Or applied before and still waiting? I am not moaning or complaining Just enquiring, The site says within 30 days and there have been no updates on the website regarding delays?? Any responces would be great,
  10. I'd just like to ask how long does it takes to have Medicals finalised? My wife and I took our medical exams last 28 October 2011. My medical results were marked online as "Further medical results received" on 29 October 2011 while my wife's medical results were marked as "Received" last 04 November 2011 (since she was asked to repeat the urine test after one week). Her Health requirements were finalised on 09 Nov 2011. I was just wondering why the status of my medicals are not changed/updated yet. Wife Medical Timeline: Nov 4 - Medicals received Nov 7 - Medicals referred Nov 9 - Medicals finalised My Medical timeline: Oct 29 - Medicals received by the way I do not have any medical issues.

  12. Hello, This is the first time I have posted anything on here, I have been dipping in and out of 'pomsinoz' for a while as our application(s) for a PR visa have/has been a real test... We first expressed an interest in emigrating to Oz three years ago and now have received our visa for PR on a SS for Perth, so any helpful information would be very much appreciated. Both my husband and I are 45, he's a plasterer with and AQF qualification and I work as an HCA in a renal unit, but probably won't in Perth and our daughter who is 18 next month and planning to work in a dental environment. We live in Wiltshire but originally from nr. Heathrow, please reply with anything we may need to know or.... :smile:
  13. Hi all, We have posted additional document to AHPRA and UPS confirmed the delivery time with person's name who accepted the delivery and AHPRA is saying they are still waiting for the document. I have emailed case officer with UPS details but I think she is not bothering to search for the document because she haven't replied my email and when I tried to contact her next day she avoided to speak to me and asked call center consultant to advise me to email again. Can we do something or we need to resend the document. But the problem is I have sent the original document and not the certified copy and also at present I am in India and also the document issued to me was from a UK hospital. Had anyone experience this (confirmed by UPS 'delivered' and AHPRA is saying still 'awaiting') .....Mansawant
  14. I have applied for Specialist Entry Sport Visa 421 from Pakistan. My application was received in Sydney Office on 12 July 2011. I have not receive any acknowledgment email or file number. I emailed them after a week regarding this and they replied that they will issue the file number within 10 working days. Now its more than 10 working days and still I am waiting for acknowledgment email and file number. I am emailing them but they are not responding. Please advise if somebody know anything regarding 421 visa
  15. Is this the default message that everyone has when their visa application has been lodged or have they really begun processing my application? :wink:

    Has anyone received SS for ACT yet?

    Hi there Has anyone received SS for ACT yet that has applied first time? We submitted our application for SS in November and they got back to us last week to say they needed more information on funds and employment which I sent back but haven’t heard anything else. Just wondered if anyone knows how long it will take for the result I’m dying to find out!! Thanks x
  17. Hi there, :smile: I am after some help and advice please. My husband (Andy) our 2 kids, 11 and 9 years old, and I are seriously looking into moving out to Australia and have booked a holiday to come out in June, we arrive in Sydney, stay for 7 nights then fly to Perth for 7 nights before flying back to England. We are looking to start contacting companies and recruitment agentcies as well as generally looking and, well, making up our own 'wanted down under' info pack basically! The problem we are having at the moment is that we are having trouble comparing our job skills with those in Australia! I know that sounds daft but as you all know its all so different out there!:err: My husband currently works as a supervisor in a aggregate quarry but he also works as a fitter and plant operator too! Where as I am a self employed graphic designer but I am also a level three teaching assistant! Do we stand a chance of getting out to Australia with these job skills? I use the term skill quite loosely in my instance! Lol :wink: Thanks in advance for reading this and for any help or advice we receive! Cheers all, Kim x
  18. Hi there everyone. I am new to this, so here goes! My name is Carolyn Yeoman and I am a 43 year old Organisational Psychologist currently living near Manchester in the UK. I am being sponsored by an Australian employer for a permanent visa. My job offer is in Melbourne and I am hoping to emigrate later this year with my husband and three children (one girl - age 13 & two boys age 7 and 10). I have just submitted the information for my skills assessment through a migration agent who my prospective employer uses. If anyone has any advice at all I would love to hear it. We are currently thinking about: areas to live (preferably near the beach), schools State v Private etc. etc. Thanks Carolyn
  19. \i have not seen this posted on the board yet, this should be sticky for abit, Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship GSM Adelaide - Level 3 55 Currie Street Adelaide SA 5000 GPO Box 1638 ADELAIDE SA 5001 • Telephone: 1300 364 613 • Fax: 08 7421 7615 • www.immi.gov.au GSM Brisbane - 299 Adelaide Street Brisbane QLD 4000 GPO Box 9984 BRISBANE QLD 4001 • Telephone: 1300 364 613 • Fax: 07 3136 7473 • www.immi.gov.au Important information for certain Priority Group 3 applicants who received a letter from DIAC in March 2011 advising that their application is expected to be allocated within three months We have recently sent email letters to certain Priority Group 3 applicants who have lodged a General Skilled Migration (GSM) application under subclasses 175, 176, 475, 885, 886 and 487. As indicated above, these emails were sent only to applicants whose applications: a) are expected to be allocated to a case officer within three months of the date of these letters; and b) can proceed with health and character requirements without firstly being assessed by a case officer. If you have received this letter and have queries about these instructions, the following Questions and Answers may be of interest. Similarly, if you have not received this letter and your application is in Priority Group 3, these Questions and Answers will explain why and when you may expect to be contacted about your application. General Questions about these letters Q1: Who has this letter been sent to? This letter has been sent to a selection of eVisa Priority 3 applicants whose application is expected to be allocated a case officer for assessment within three months of the date of this letter. The applications within this group are ones which can proceed with health and character requirements without the application first being assessed by a case officer. If you have not received this letter it is because your application is one which is unable to proceed without first being assessed by a case officer, or it is one which is not expected to be assessed in coming months. The timeframe for allocation of your case to a case officer will not be affected by this. Applications will continue to be allocated for assessment in accordance with the priority processing arrangements and within date of lodgement order. Information on current allocation dates can be obtained by sending a blank email to gsm.processing@immi.gov.au. - 2 - Q2: What are the specific requirements of this letter? If you have received a letter addressed to you which confirms that your application is in Priority Group 3 and is expected to be allocated to a case officer for assessment within three months of the date of that letter, you and any family members included in your application should now follow the instructions of that letter. That is, all family members included in your application should now: 1. Undertake your health and character clearances if you have not already done so. 2. Complete Form 80: Personal particulars for character assessment 3. Update the Department on any change to your circumstances since lodgement of your application (if any). 4. Provide any documents relevant to your application that you have not already provided. Q3: Should I proceed with these clearances now? Yes, if you have received this letter. This is because the department expects to be able to be able to allocate your application to a case officer for assessment within three months of the date of this letter. By initiating these health and character clearances now and providing Form 80 and any other documents relevant to your application, you are likely to enable your application to be assessed in a quicker timeframe once it is allocated to a case officer. It is also possible that a decision may be able to be made when your application is first assessed without the need for your case officer to contact you about any outstanding requirements. Q4: Who should undertake these clearances? This letter refers to yourself and all members of your family unit listed in your application, irrespective of whether or not they are migrating with you. Members of your family unit include the following persons (as applicable): • a spouse, • dependent children, • children born after your application was lodged, and • a dependent widowed parent. If you have received this letter, all members of your family unit included in your application should now attend to the requirements listed. - 3 - Q5. I have received both a Personalised Letter (emailed on either 18th or 21st March 2011) advising me to undertake health and character clearances, and accessed the Invitation to undertake Health and Character attached to the auto-reply at gsm.processing@immi.gov.au – which one should I follow? If you have received a letter personally addressed to you which confirms that your application is in Priority Group 3 and is expected to be allocated to a case officer for assessment within three months of the date of that letter, you and any family members included in your application should now follow the instructions of that letter as listed as Q2. eVisa application and access Q6: I have forgotten my eVisa password and can not attach documents to the webbrowser, what should I do? If you have forgotten your eVisa password and are unable to attach information requested in this letter to your eVisa application via the web-browser (http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/general-skilled-migration-attachments.htm) you will need to forward any clearances, forms or requested documentation by email to gsm.documents@immi.gov.au. When doing so please ensure that you include your Client File Number and the Letter Reference Number. Health clearance results will be sent to the department by the clinic you visit. Please note that eVisa passwords are unable to be re-set. Q7: I can’t get into my eVisa application to download the medical forms, what should I do? To log into your eVisa application you will need to enter the Transaction Reference Number (TRN) listed at the top of the letter, your name, date of birth and passport number. If some any reason you are unable to download these forms, you will need to wait until your application has been allocated to a case officer for assessment (within three months of the date of this letter) before attending to this requirement. A case officer will assist you at this point in time. You may however, proceed with other requirements of this letter. - 4 - Health and Character clearances Q8: How should I apply for my health and character clearances? Health Clearances: Background information on the health requirement and health clearance process is available at: http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/health-requirements/. To obtain the forms required for a health examination, you will need to visit https://www.ecom.immi.gov.au/inquiry/query/query.do?action=eVisa. From here youwill need to log into your eVisa application. The Health forms (160EH and 26EH) are available to be downloaded from the Document Checklist link. Character Clearances: Background information on the character requirement and instructions on how to initiate a character clearance is available at: http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/character-requirements/ For the Australian Government to determine whether you are of good character, police certificates are required for each country you have lived in for 12 months or more over the last ten (10) years since turning 16 years of age. This includes Australia if you have resided in Australia for 12 months or more during this period. Each applicant included in the application aged 16 years or over will need to initiate these clearances irrespective of whether they are migrating with you. Q9: I am unable to obtain the results of my health clearance from the doctor, what should I do? If you have undertaken a health examination with an approved panel doctor (outside of Australia) or Medibank Health Solutions (in Australia), there is nothing further you need to do in relation to obtaining a health clearance. The results of your examination will be forwarded by the doctor to the department. You will be contacted if there are any further requirements once your case has been allocated to a case officer for assessment. As mentioned in this letter allocation of your case is likely to occur within three months of the date of this letter. Q10. I require a letter from DIAC listing all applicant names to obtain character clearances, how should I proceed? The department is aware that in some countries such a letter from the department is required before an applicant can undertake character clearances. If this is the case for you or any members of your family unit, please note that this letter may be used for this purpose. You may also use the Acknowledgement Letter sent to you when your application was lodged. You should present a copy of this Acknowledgement Letter and the letter provided by email in March when applying for a character clearance. - 5 - Alternatively, specific information as required for a clearance can be provided to you when your application has been allocated to a case officer for assessment. Q11: I am not sure if one of my clearances is still valid? If you have any queries about these instructions or the validity of a clearance you have already obtained, you will need to wait until you have been allocated a case officer and raise these queries at that time. This is because a case officer will need to assess your application in its entirety before determining whether any new clearances will be required. As mentioned in this letter, the department expects to allocate your application to a case officer within three months from the date of this letter. Hence, the validity of a particular clearance already obtained will be clarified within a relatively short timeframe. Form 80 Q12. Form 80: Should I download this form from my eVisa application or the DIAC website? A new Form 80: Personal particulars for character assessment should be completed for all applicants including dependents aged 16 years or over irrespective of whether they are migrating or not, and irrespective of whether this form(s) was provided when lodging your application. This up-to-date information will assist with the processing of an application once it is allocated. Form 80 should be downloaded from department’s website at: http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/80.pdf and not via your eVisa application.This form can be electronically completed and submitted to the department. Once complete you can attach this form online or email it to gsm.documents@immi.gov.au. If emailing to the department please ensure that you include your Client File Number and the Letter Reference Number within the subject line of the email. Providing clearances, forms or relevant documentation to the Department Q13: How should I provide the documentation requested in this letter? eVisa applicants should attach any clearances, forms or relevant documentation to the web-browser. For information on how to attach documents to the web-browser see: http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/general-skilled-migration-attachments.htm. If you are unable to attach documents to the web-browser, or you do not have your current eVisa password, these documents should be emailed to gsm.documents@immi.gov.au. Please ensure that you include your Client File Number and the Letter Reference Number within the subject line of the email. As mentioned above, health clearance results will be sent to the department by the clinic you visit. - 6 - What next? Q14: I have now provided all of my clearances, a new Form 80 and updated any changes in circumstances (as requested in this letter), when will my application be allocated to a case officer? If you have received this letter it is because the department expects to be able to allocate your application for assessment by a case officer within three months of the date of this letter. Applications will continue to be allocated in accordance with the priority processing arrangements as specified at http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/updated-priorityprocessing-arrangements.htm and after that, in date of lodgement order. Please note that this three month timeframe relates only to the initial assessment of your application. The length of time taken to process an application will be determined by any other outstanding requirements and your action to any request. You may wish to obtain an update on which GSM applications are currently being allocated to case officers for assessment. To do so, please send a blank email to gsm.processing@immi.gov.au. This auto-response is updated fortnightly and will provide you with an indication of when your application is nearing allocation. Once your application is allocated to a case officer, we request you allow a further six weeks for your application to be assessed. Q15. Is there anything else I can do? If you have received this letter and all members of your family unit included in your application have completed all of the requirements specified, there is nothing further you need to do until you are contacted by a case officer. At this point in time your case officer will advise you of any further requirements, or a decision, once they have assessed your application. Further questions Q16. I have further questions about these instructions, what can I do? If you have any queries about these instructions, you will need to wait until you have been allocated a case officer and raise these at that time. This is because a case officer will need to assess your application in its entirety and this can only be done once the application has been allocated. You may choose not to proceed with the requirements specified in this letter as this is not a formal request under the Migration Act. Please note that by not proceeding with these requirements the allocation of your application to a case officer will not be delayed but the time taken to finalise your application once it has been assessed by a case officer may be longer. Applications will continue to be allocated in accordance with the priority processing arrangements as specified at http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/updated-priorityprocessing-arrangements.htm and after that, in date of lodgement order. You may however, proceed with any elements of this letter for which you do not have questions. By doing this you may still allow your application to be processed in a quicker timeframe once allocated to a case officer for assessment. - 7 - Advice to applicants who have not received a letter Q17: When will other Priority Group 3 or 4 applicants be contacted? Applications are being allocated to a case officer for assessment in accordance with the priority processing arrangements set by the Minister for GSM applications. Under these arrangements the highest GSM priority is given to Priority Group 2 - applications from people who are nominated by a state or territory government agency with a nominated occupation that is specified on that state or territory’s state migration plan. Processing of Priority Group 2 applications is such they are now being allocated to a case officer to be assessed within a fortnight of receipt of their State/ Territory nomination form (Form 1100). Subsequently, processing has recommenced on Priority Group 3 applications in date of lodgement order within this priority grouping. Information on current processing dates for GSM applications can be obtained by sending a blank email to gsm.processing@immi.gov.au. You may wish to email this address periodically to determine whether the department is close to allocating applications commenced on the date of lodgement of your application. Further emails are expected to be sent to other Priority Group 3 and 4 applicants in coming months to advise of other applications nearing allocation to a case officer, and with updates on GSM application processing.

    Received a letter from DIAC

    Hi there, We lodged our 175 visa in July 2010 online and received the automated response that it was received. Last week we received an email from them saying that our application has been assessed as a valid application. Has anyone else received similar emails? Could a CO be near? On our online visa enquiry they have added a line "email sent to you" aswell. Thanks Bundy
  21. Having seen 11 August update of South Australia website has anybody received email from them? :wideeyed::wideeyed: General skilled migration :: Make The Move

    Medicals received .. What now?

    Just wondering if anybody might know what happens next? We did our meds on 18/03/11 and as of Thurs, they seem to be all received (online application). Our agent attached PCC's and work experience docs a couple of weeks ago (which still say requested). Not sure if DIAC require anything else but just wondered if they have everything they require, should the visa follow soon? :wink: Cheers.
