    Really want to share my story!
    9/9/16 nomination and visa apply
    7/3/17 submitted further doc
    23/3/17 nomination refused due to training benchmarks fee not enough
    25/3/17 paid training fee again
    10/4/17 MA re-apply 186 nomination and visa
    New policy: From 19/4/17 Immigration announced that 457 visa changed and I known that my occupation removed from the list already.
    is anyone in the same case as me?
    Don't know any affect for my new application with the new policy.
    very worry on it!

    So sorry mate..
    What are the docs they requested?
    Is it regarding training?

    Hey @Hussain

    with regard to Q1, I'm not quite sure what you mean; what is the expected processing time?? below is the immigration's predicted processing time;

    Global visa processing times

    Stream 75 per cent of applications processed 90 per cent of applications processed
    Direct Entry Pathway 10 months

    12 months

    Agreement 5 months 7 months
    Transitional Pathway 8 months

    9 months

    and on Q2, the department are currently processing applications between April and November 2016. 

     

    Let me know if I've misunderstood the first question...

    Hey all, 

     

    So I've got a question and really interested to see if anyone has experience with something similar;

    I've applied under the DE pathway, and of course one of the main criteria is the 3 years of relevant work experience, which i satisfy twice over. I've got a positive skills assessment,  however, 5 of my 7 years of experience are with a family business. My question is, I've got all my documents as specified in the list, however I'm not sure how a Statement of Service from my own father stacks up as evidence of work experience for immigration vs VetAsses. All the experience is legitimate and genuine, but I'm just worried as I dont have offical payslips, and that they may ask for another form of proof...I could attach 5 years of bank statements showing my wages, but do you think it will be necessary? I'd prefer to do it and attach it now as opposed to waiting for the request.

    I know, still very early days for my application, but cant help but want to make my application as strong as possible and avoid any further document requests if possible!

    Any opinion or experience would be much appreciated

    Am I the only person to find that the 186 timeline spreadsheet was changed from editable mode to read only mode.

    Is this issue only for me or to everyone?

    As we can see many guys who are not following the forum are following the spreadsheet. So I think it's better to let them add their own details.

    I completely agree, I have been on that forum for almost a year and the spreadsheet has always worked well as an open document...

    On top of that, people should be allowed to remove their info if they wanted to... At the end of the day, that's personal info and people do not necessarily want to share their email address... If they even have a gmail one...

    I don't even know where to find it?? And I'd like to follow it and keep up as I find it helpful but it's doesn't even look like people use it anymore which makes it hard to see a pattern.., like from April to Dec 16 is good and this year suddenly it's like there a decline (which I don't believe) ..... so can someone shed some light on this or am I just being thick? Lol

    Hello everyone,

    sorry if I'm posting here but  I'm completely freaking out.

    so my story in Australia: applied for 457 as restaurant manager in May 2013, refusal in august 2013, so I appealed to MRT and got a bridging visa. In September 2013 I started to work as restaurant manager for my sponsor business. In April 2015 I won the appeal and on the 5th of June 2015 I got the 457.

    Actually I have been working for my sponsor for almost 4 years but only from June 2015 under the 457.

    Now my plan was to apply for ENS 186 TRT on the 5th of June 2017, but can I still do that with good chances to get it??? And can I apply like next week so the time they process my application it will be definitely  more than 2 years since my 457 started???

    sorry again but I'm very worried as I already went through hell to stay legitimately here and also invested a lot time and money...as many of you.

    thank you very much

    I think you're ok if you apply before April 2018 when your occupation will be removed from the list, but it would be worthwhile to speak with a migration agent to confirm.  Definitely do not apply before June 5th because the nomination and visa would be refused as not meeting the 2 year requirement at time of application.

    If you have already applied, you should not be affected by the changes.

    I hope it will go fast in a mtter of days.

    Funny enough, I got the nom approval one day after calling tge immigration department bagging for them to open my file. Maybe it is not a bad idea to call them. Btw, I'm also offshore waiting to get the final YES.  good luck and stay positive.

        Hi,
        I'm planning to apply for subclass 186 (DE) in the next following months. I have a colleague who has already applied last December for 186 via TRT stream with training benchmark requirements for 2015-2016 (20% trainer role):
        1. In 2015-2016 trainer role should be a key part of the role. What does it mean? Must it be more than 50%? If so, can he get rejection?
        2. I'm planing to apply after March 2018 when the new training benchmark (3K/5K contribution to SAF) will replace the existing one. If the company nomination will be refused for my colleague (after I've already applied) will I get a refusal as well?
         
        Thanks,

        Hi,
        i have a question about the academic transcript that is required by the tra. What does a successful one look like? How much info do they expect?The school where i did my apprenticeship (full time at school, practical and theoretical parts, not half paid employment, half school (btw. is that going to be a problem?) ) has got a document that outlines the content and hours of the course for each year in detail, but it is over 40 pages long. That would cost a fortune to have it translated to english. Could I write a summary of the document with key words and hours completed and have it signed by the school???
        cheers

        Hello, 
        I'm very new to this site so hope I'm doing this correctly. I was hoping to get some advice from anyone who is in the know / has had a similar experience. 
        I have been employed with my employer for 2 years and 5 months. My employer completed a nomination for me for 186 visa In May last year. I submitted my application in October last year. 
        It has only recently come to my attention that the department are disputing the validity of my visa and it sounds like it won't be granted because the nomination was put it too early. ( My concern being my money for visa may be lost despite them not even looking at my part of the application yet )
        We have received nothing formal yet - but communication / response is proving very difficult. 
        Im just wondering how likely it is that the nomination and subsequent application would be approved given it was submitted early ? Even though that time frame has long been surpassed? And I made contact before I submitted my application and feel like I have been given misleading information? 
        Also, if it was to be refused - what would my options be? Or is there anything I can do now before it gets to that point ? 
        I have been trying to access some advice from certified migration agents and waiting on call backs/ appointments but my anxiety regarding this is getting the better of me so thought I would post here to see if there is any other advice. 
        Hope to hear from someone soon. 
        Thanking you in advance.

        Hi All, 

        First timer here, so be kind... 

        I'm a UK resident married to an Aussie Wife, we have been together for 9 years or so. Married for 2.5 Years.  
        We have one 18month old little boy, with another one on the way. Due around July. 

        The time has come, and we plan to head back to Aus in December. 

        From what I can see, we will be able to get the kids Aus citizenship by descent, and this shouldn't cost too much, around £230 plus £95 for Additional newborn. 

        I, on the other hand, will have to jump through the usual visa hoops and pay around 7k AUD. 
        The waiting time appears to be around 11 months if applied in the UK and 22months in AUS. 

        I'm interested in advice to see if there's a better way of doing things as if I apply here and don't get my passport or visa back in time for me to fly in December, then I might be better off flying out on a tourist visa, and then applying to stay as such. 
        I would also be interested if anyone knows if there's a cheaper or better way of my doing things, as my wife and two kids i will all be citizens, will they still charge me 7k for the privilege, I thought a while back they use to do free or cheaper visa's if you had young children etc. 
        Any help would be appreciated.
