That's so silly! I don't understand why you can't name something that might help others both this site and others are useful. This site doesn't provide ALL the info you need to keep sane! 🙄

The rules don't allow members to drive traffic towards competitive sites.  That's a fairly basic rule to any online forum.

Not really.  Posting links to other forums is a bit like going in to a supermarket and giving out leaflets for a competitors supermarket.  I doubt if the other forums would allow you to link to the one ( feel free to have a go though).

Been a member of a fair few over the years (mostly non-immigration ones) and I've never yet come across one that allows links to others as a matter of course.

Hi Guys - just an update. It will be 4 months since I lodged my 189 visa on 20th July. I know a few of us have similar timelines; however, i'd like to hear if this is the case for anyone else. It is becoming so so frustrating and anxiety is through the roof! Thanks guys

Ok understood. It's just extreme that's all. I've seen many people naming & linking to other sites across different forums and that's why people do it- to help others. This site is better for more in depth info and "chatting" / visa talk. The one that was mentioned was just a tracker ... 

 

Good of luck to all of you waiting everytime I'm getting a notification in clicking in to see if any of you have been successful. Hang in there once you get that magical email somehow all the stress and anxiety just vanishes and you'll never remember how difficult it was. It's 5 weeks until we fly and I'm still in disbelief that we have been given the visa. 🙄

75% processed with 4 months. 90% within 7 months.

What??? 75% processed in 4mths but 90% within 7mths??? Makes no sense shouldn't it be 10% in 4mths and 90% in 7?

Yes - as I say, 75% of visas are processed within 4 months. 90% of visas are processed within 7 months. Therefore, the remaining 10% that aren't processed within 7 months will take longer.
