189 Visa in just 21 days- THANK YOU for all of your advice!

Recommended Posts

Hi Poms This is my first post but I have secretly been using this forum for the past 6 months. Thanks to all of the amazing information that is available on this forum I received my visa grant just 3 weeks after lodging my 189. My timeline is as follows: EOI submitted 30 March with 70 points EOI invite 1st April 189 lodged 10 April CO Adelaide Team 4 first contact 30 April visa grant 1st May Cant quite believe it. The only thing I can think is that I followed every piece of advice on here for my employment and especially defacto dependent and was so super organised submitting absolutely everything advised that the only thing they had to ask for we're medicals which luckily had been done and were uploaded on 30 April by my emedical centre in Cardiff. My girlfriend and I are now able to start a new adventure in Oz with my brother (married an Ozzie- lucky sod!) and it wouldn't have been possible with this forum- so THANK YOU! Laura

Good luck Lou! I hope it's as quick for you after mess as it was for us!

 

Keep me posted with your progress and if you need any advice just let me know- though everything I know is a culmination of the hundreds of posts I've read on here- so probably nothing new to you!

Hi Laura.

Congratulations on getting your visa.

My wife and I are going through the motions at the moment. We're in Cardiff too and I wonder if you could point me in the direction of this emedical place you used? Were they set up for sorting out visa medicals?

Cheers,

Neil

Hi Neil,

 

We used the spire medical hospital in pentwyn. They are all set up to go! Just ring and book an appointment stating it is for Aussie immigration- its a really nice place and the doctor was lovely and very reassuring throughout. They were really quick uploading the docs too. It cost about 325 each. I don't have the number but it's definitely called Spire- google and it will come up!

 

Any other help, just ask!

 

​Lau
