176 lodged May 2012

Recommended Posts

Well... we made it in time for the deadline!

 

It would be great to use this thread for anyone lodging 176 during May. The previous groups provided a great support for one another.

 

What a relief that it's finally lodged!! Now we wait...

Hey Jars,

Hey Jars,

 

Would you be willing to share your list of documents required for 176 please?

 

:biggrin:

 

Here's the list!

P60 + 2 recent payslips

Updated employer reference

Birth certificates for everyone (full certificates for everyone else and abridged for me whilst I'm waiting for my full certificate to be sent from South Africa to the UK)

Naturalisation certificate for myself

IELTS results

Qualifications + transcripts

Bank statement, council tax, car insurance doc, electricity doc etc (proof of address)

Marriage certificate

VETASSESS skills assessment

WA state sponsorship

Oh, and of course passport copies

 

I think that's all I gave our agents, so not sure what actually was uploaded in the end! We also completed Forms 80 just in case - what an annoying form!

Hope this helps

Wow, that long?! Well, from your timeline I notice you are at least a month into it, so there should still be time before the deadline.

Yeah its a massive relief! :biggrin:

 

Hopefully will submit 176 today, but tomorrow at the latest. Need to change a few bits and pieces on the application - didn't realise I needed to add hubby's family members and children, plus need to give it the once, twice .... over! Oh, and transfer the application fee to my current account. Will update this thread as soon as I hit the submit button.

 

We just need a few more members to the May team now....:biggrin:

ooo hopefully we will be able to join this thread too with our application, just waiting for our daughters' passports to come so we can submit 176. Ive started filling out the form online but cant go past the screen where i need to put their passport numbers in. Does the app take a long time to fill out? Can I ask why u need to include p60 and work references? My partner works for himself so I guess they will want evidence of that. Ive seen Feb and March appicants get their visas granted within 6/8 weeks so hopefully April/May will too!


Getting the Visa was the easy part! :eek:

Received an automated response from the GSM center re my 176 application yesterday - it gives a list of documents that's required - I have front loaded all docs including Form 80 but now its requesting form 1221 - Is this normal - did anyone else receive this? Also tried to book my medical yesterday and received the following response form the e-clinic ' I have tried your TRN number but I cannot access. Have you ticked the box for our clinic which is around the medical

information on your application'. I didn't get a chance to print out my visa application - r they talking about form 26EH - I thought that was filled out on the day of the medical.

Any advice from people who have already done medicals

Ignore the automated e-mail, it's pretty much the same for everyone. Go by your online 'document checklist'

 

Form 26EH and 160EH are auto-filled when you lodge the online app. Just take a printout when you go for the Meds.


Too easy, mate.

Sorry, can't help you much with the form as our agent did all that (phew!!). I submitted my P60 and work experience only because VETASSESS assessed my post-qualification skills at about 2yrs 8 months but by the time I submitted the 176 I have actually done 3 years post-qual (more before that but did my degree part-time whilst I was working so that unfortunately didn't count). So the P60 etc was just to prove that I am still in the same position as what they used to assess me. Hope that makes sense - I get confused with it all myself! lol :eek:

 

Hope your daughters' passports arrive soon so that you can submit yours too

Has anyone had any issues with uploading docs? Basically after I had paid, a page appeared with a document checklist. Printed it off to start gathering the bits I didn't have ready. When I logged in again to review the app, the list is completely different. The kids medicals have dissapeareed (non migrating dependents). When I phoned the clinic, they had me and hubby down, but no kids. Anyone else had this?

 

Also I can't upload anything either now. The link where a password is required won't accept the password I had been using all day. My TRN number is identical to the number I had been logging on with, just less an S.

 

Stressing me out a little. I love technology, when it works. Feel like I did everything right but now it's given up the ghost.

All sorted folks so no worries. There was a glitch in the system apparently, but my full application is there. Very helpful lady just advised me to upload remaining docs via email.
