    How long does it usually take for DIBP to contact you with a date for your citizenship test? Do they e-mail you or send a letter in the post? I've been waiting a week since I applied and still nothing...

    Hey,

     

    You will get an email for your citizenship test date. I got it in the 2nd week after applying.

    Are you without your 'country of origin' passport for any period when applying for citizenship? How long does it usually take to get an Aussie passport?

     

    I'm eligible for citizenship at the moment but I've got two trips out of the country in the coming months so I need to time my application well

    No. Not all all. You send a scanned copy of your passport with your application and take the original with you to the appointment/citizenship test.

    Myself, oh and daughter got our appointment email (from Perth ) within 36 hours. Our son on the other hand had to wait 7 days for his, even though all our online applications were uploaded on the same day.

    Do you guys reckon I would get into the Australia Day ceremony? I received my citizenship approval letter in the post about a week after I sat the test. Not sure what the cut off date was for making the Citizenship Day (17 Sept) ceremony, but hopefully I'm not far down in the queue for the following ceremony on Australia Day!

    Unfortunately, nobody can tell you when you'll get your invite for the ceremony. That's completely up to your council and every council deals differently with citizenship matters and of course if they have a so called 'backlog' (= description of being overwhelmed and not well enough organized with hosting the right number of citizenship ceremonies).

    DIBP can't influence that, their work ended with sending the approval letter.

     

    Try to log on their website and have a look if they have announced when the next citizenship ceremonies are hosted.

     

    I think Unley Council will host a ceremony on Australia Day as here's the next misunderstanding occuring: not every council will do so 'just' because of Australia Day! Depends on funding and resources, my new council won't do that and will stick to Tuesdays + Wednesdays.

     

    Good luck to you for a quick ceremony and keep us updated!

    We were told at the time of the test that the next step would be to expect a letter from the department in 2 - 6 weeks.

        Hello everyone,
        I completed medicals June 25th and also police check is uploaded. Can anyone advise their timelines to 489 visa grant after this? i.e after uploading police check and completing medicals.
        Much appreciated.
      • By whoiam
        This timeline and info thread is for those who have lodged their applications post 1st July,2012, under the new skillselect scheme.
         The Employer Nomination Scheme visa (subclass 186) is for skilled workers from outside Australia or skilled temporary residents who currently live and work in Australia. It is part of the permanent Employer Sponsored visa program.
        To apply for this visa, you must:
        be nominated by an approved employer be younger than 50 years of age meet the skills and qualifications requirements meet English language requirements. If you are nominated to apply for this visa, you must lodge your application online within six months of the date the nomination was approved.
        When you apply, you must select one of the visa’s three streams.
        Choose the Temporary Residence Transition stream if you are a subclass 457 visa holder who has worked for your employer for two years in the nominated occupation and your employer wants to offer you a permanent position in that occupation. Choose the Direct Entry stream if you have never, or only briefly, worked in the Australian labour market and have not held a subclass 457 visa for the last two years, or if you are applying directly from outside Australia. Choose the Agreement stream if you are being sponsored by an employer through a tailored and negotiated labour agreement or regional migration agreement.

        Hi,  we  lodged our 143 visa application  in June 2015,  has anyone an idea as when immi will first pick it up and make contact for police checks,  medicals etc.. Thank you for any replies.

        Dear all,
         
        I would like to ask if it helps CO to confirm his/her decision if a 457 visa application is lodged before the nomination is approved?
         
        My situation is my boss lodged the nomination application in late May and received a request for more information in late June; we then have been waiting until now. My boss did not pass me the TRN as he is used to having the visa application lodgement only after the nomination is approved.
         
        The thing is, I read the following latest newsletter update on an agency website:
         
        Processing times and changes to caseload allocation
        The Department is undertaking a number of steps in an effort to reduce processing times. Under one such initiative, 457 processing will move to a “global allocation model” across the Department’s five processing centres. Associated nominations and visa applications will be allocated to one case officer at the same time. This is a move designed to improve consistency of decision-making as well as improving efficiency.
         
        So I wonder will nominations without relevant visa application noted are being put aside until the IMMI receives it, so that the CO can assess the case with all information at once. Grateful for your advice and comments.
         
        Many thanks,
        kieu

        Hi Allm
         
        My other half has just lodged our EOI for the a state sponsored visa in NSW (im assuming its a 190). He is a plumber and has 60 points.
        I have been driving him mad with questions so though it would be an idea to post on here to get some idea of what others are experiencing.
         
        Can someone give me an idea if the time getting selected differs for each profession and if anyone has had any experiences with this for a plumber?
        Does everyone get a Case Officer do you only get one when you have been selected?
        As the spouse what do I need to do? I dont seem have done much really so is there anything I can do to help.
         
        We are currently using an agent to get this visa and so far it has taken a year to get everything done and the EOI to be lodged. Its so long and i just cant see light at the end of the tunnel so any advice/experiences would be great.
         
        Thanks all ss
