      Australian Visa Timelines Tracker website now live   19/10/17

      If you’re applying for an Australian visa, you want to know how long it’s going to take to be granted. This is understandable as you’re eager to start your new life in Australia. Having such information will also allow you to get on with other crucial steps in the immigration process. That's why, after feedback from our members,  we've launched our Australian Visa Timelines Tracker https://ww.australia-visa-timelines.com The tracker allows you to enter key dates about your visa application and compare them in tabular format with other applicants around the globe. You can look at who’s applied for the same visa as you, the same dates as you, from the same country, occupation etc. This will allow you obtain greater insight into the likely time is will take for your visa to be granted. We've still a couple of changes to make over the next couple of weeks, but the site is now online and available for use.

      1. 189 Visa refused

        Hi everyone, a newbie here to this forum and forums in general so bear with me! My fiance and I applied for a 189 visa (her as a defacto) on 3rd Feb 2014 as an Architect from being on a 457 in Brisbane for the last 2.5 years. I had my skills assessed through AACA, had meds etc. Without any further correspondence until today (25th March 2014) I have been refused a visa based on the basis that I have provided an incorrect skills assessment. Now, apparently, the AACA have two different kinds of skills assessment - one that is for use as registration of an architect and one that is for the purpose of migration. I had no idea of this at the time and applied assuming that there is only this form of skills assessment. After my refusal, which both my fiance and I feel completely distraught about, I contact the AACA and they explained that if I sent them a stat dec stating why I needed the other certificate, they would send out the correct one. My problem is that my CO has 'finalised' the application and my EOI has been removed. The CO stated that as there was no valid skills assessment at the time the application was lodged then they can do no more on the visa apart from refuse it and finalise it. I have had no request for information during this process - if I had, then I could have supplied this, or withdrawn the application. As it stands I have lost the application fee, and either face a tribunal which will cost $1600 or re-apply for another visa with the correct skills assessment certificate which will cost another $4000 which we simply cannot afford as we have our wedding this year. Can anybody help with any advice? Is it worth to go to a tribunal with what I have described, providing I receive the correct skills assessment letter dated back when I received the other one? Could this situation be changed and not even go to a tribunal if I can get this information to my CO? My fiance and I are completely floored by this news and can't believe that something like this can happen without any correspondence from them in the interim. If anybody requires more info, just ask and I will let you know what I can. Any advice would be appreciated - especially advice which won't cost us any more money!
      2. Having attained an MBA in Sydney back in Dec 2010, I submitted my application for a 485 Graduate visa in May 2011 but found out today that the application was refused because I'd exceeded the 6-month application window allowed by one week. The delay was the only reason the visa was refused. I'm now in the process of submitting an appeal to the tribunal board, and I wondered if anyone else has experience in dealing with the tribunal board? I've heard that they always uphold the decision made by Dept of Immigration unless THEY have made a mistake. Is this true? Is there no option for leniency on their part even though the late submission was a genuine mistake on my part? Also, am I still able to apply for a different visa while my appeal is heard?? Trying to find any avenue possible to stay in Australia which I now consider my new home. Any advice/suggestions would be much appreciated. And don't worry, I'm not expecting legal advice, just hoping to hear from anyone who has gone through something similar. :cool:
      3. Migration Tribunal

        Hi guys, I've recently been refused 176 visa ( on 5th of oct) and would like to know if there is a time limit for applying for an apeal with Migration Tribunal.
      4. Hi all, received the sad news of my sister's application as a Skilled-Regional Sponsored (subclass 475) that was refused on 21st April, 2011 due to not meeting the criteria of her work experience versus the skill assessment that she had. We have the option on getting the result review via MRT, should I do it or not? We did all the application by ourselves as we cannot afford a migration agent, do you know a good migration agent that is not too expensive to charge... any feedback is good..thank you
      5. A quick question...Does anyone know how long a decision made by the MRT will stand for??? A previous application for a Skilled Migration was refused, however after a Review Tribunal it was granted (some years back).... the confusing bit between is that since it was granted no-one was notified (that we are aware of...and several house moves later) this has only come to light now. I have tried contacting them directly but with no response to date as yet.
