  1. I got invited to apply for a 190 skilled visa as a fitter in August for SA. I potentially have a job offer in a critical sector whom is able to provide immigration with a offer of employment. Does anyone know how much this will speed up the process and if this is what is needed to have a case officer assigned to my application? Has anyone else had this happen to them?
  2. Just wondering if anyone is at the same stage as us. We have just had our 491 visa grant through after being invited by SA at the end of June. Rather quick turnaround on the application, which could be down to the occupation we applied under. What circumstances have people had an exemption granted in order to enter the country on a temporary visa?
  3. Hi, has anyone recently had their 491 application changed to further assessment after sending in further info? If so how long did it take for a visa decision to be made?
  4. Hi guys, I have applied for 189 visa last year (17 sep 2018), and got an email in November from immigration saying "Assessment commence and allocated for further processing,,,,". Since then no update, did not ask for any documents ( I uploaded everything at the time of lodgement ). It's been a year , and nothing is happening. My application status is "Received" in immi website. Does anyone have similar experience? Please share/advice. Thanks

    When will my visa be granted?

    Q. How long does it take for my Australian Visa application to be granted? If you’re applying (or about to apply) 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. This can include knowing when to put your house up for sale – too early and you may have to move into temporary rental accommodation if your house sells and your visa hasn’t been granted. Conversely, if you delay putting your house up for sale, you may end up with your visa being granted and not being able to move as your house hasn’t sold and your equity is tied up in the property. Other things to consider are knowing when to organise international removals – shipping your goods to Australia takes several weeks. Knowing when to start job hunting, arranging for your children to finish school etc. As you can see, being able to accurately predict when your visa will be granted is very important. There are several ways you can get information to help you determine approximate waiting times: The Department of Immigration and Border Protection The Department of Immigration and Border Protection publish approximate processing times on there website. The information is not specific to your case however and goes along the lines of “75% of applications processed in x number of days” for example. It’s also possible to send a blank email to DIBP for some visas and this will trigger an automated email response which contains approximate processing times. (eg, email parents@border.gov.au for information on parent, child and other family branch visas) Social Media Another method is to visit groups and forums such as www.pomsinoz.com as many members post their visa timelines on the forums to compare with other members timelines. Australia Visa Timelines Immigration Trackers A third way, and a method which is becoming more popular is to utilize an immigration tracker / visa timelines website such as: www.australia-visa-timelines.com This allows you to enter key dates about your visa application and compare them in tabular format with lots of other members. 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.
  6. Dear members, I need to know how much time does it take for visa grant for 189, after visa lodgement? Please advice, thank you
  7. Dear Friends, C/O team 6 emailed and requested me to pay 2nd VAC and sign the form 815 on 12-May-2014. I have run through most of threads here and understood that there's some delay/slowdown in visa grant until the first of July. I highly appreciate if someone can share your pieces of advice as following. 1. By paying and signing these requirements, does it means that my visa is on the way to approve? 2. Have I got to wait until the first of July for visa processing or can I have visa granted earlier? Thanks, Hope you all getting visa grant soon.

    Visa Grant and Critical Illness

    Hello I just wanted to find out is there any way you can lose your permanent residence once your visa has been granted but before you have had a chance to activate it by visiting Australia? Say for example if you were unfortunate enough to have had a heart attack after the visa grant but before you had a chance to travel to Australia to activate it, could something like that have any impact? Thanks David
