189 Visa Lodged August 2015

Recommended Posts

I hope I'm ok to post this. Thought I'd start things off. I lodged my application on August 3rd and front loaded all documents including police certificate and Medical. Visa fee paid in full.

 

Good luck to everyone applying this month and may the time pass swiftly.

Hi All

 

I received an invite on August 3rd... I've just spent the evening completing the VISA application and uploading all documents..!!! (phewwww)....

 

Really chuffed....

 

Can I just check - my immi account says "application received"... is that the same for you guys ??

 

time to sit back and relax...!!! or, log on to my immi account every 5 minutes and wonder why there's no update ;-)

Yes mine says that too. Luckily our agent gave me details to log in to be able to sort Medicals etc out and saw this when I was looking around on there!

With 65 points you'll get an invite next round as long as your occupation isn't on a pro rata.

Sure thing. I applied with 65 points and got invited at first attempt :) Best of look for September. You'll almost certainly get invite.

Hi, if my occupation is on pro rata, what is my chance to get the invitation?

 

I only have 60 points with accountant. I lodged my EOI in july

Hopeful - Until DIBP publish the stats online, its a bit of a guessing game, however in the last 2 rounds (July & Aug), not one single 60 pointer has received an invite. I say this based on seeing someone with a lodgement date of 24th March who has still not got an invite. Even if once the 65 point backlog is cleared, some allocations go to 60 pointers, it will take months to get to July 60 pointers alas.

 

I really recommend you look to boost points via English language test.... For example, if you boost points to 70 during August, then you will be guaranteed an invite in the September round....

Full birth certificate showing both parents names is adequate for regular applications where both parents are migrating.

However, if the natural father (or mother) is not migrating with you, then you will need to prove to the department that you have custody with the rights to remove the child from your country or obtain written permission from the other parent by completing form 1229.

Form 80 is a form to address certain character requirements and is not required in all cases. There doesn't appear to be any real pattern to who gets asked for Form 80 and who doesn't. Therefore, I'd recommend that you get one completed and ready to go if you do get asked. My thoughts are that if you complete form 80 and upload it, it will make the application decision ready and save any further delay in requesting it from you and then having to wait to get the application looked at again by a member of the processing team.

There is an option in the supporting documents box near the top of the eLodgement page and if you click 'attach document' then a full list of document types will be available and you'll find form 80 on the list.
