Hi Milan,

I am waiting 3 weeks since I submitted all requested documents. My status is further assessment.

I don’t think there is any timeline and it just depends when they view the case and documents again. 
 

How long have you been waiting? 


nomination applied: 27.09.2019
nomination approved: 01.10.2019
Visa Applied: 186 ENS TRT 01.10.2019

Request s56 Police checks: 08.10.2019

medicals completed: 12.10.2019

further assessment: Oct 2019 

email from Immi: 09.12.2019 - delays due to character checks 

notice of character checks complete from VACCU: 07.05.2020

not further update - still further assessment 

occupation: Youth Worker (grandfather arrangements pre 2017).

I’ve been waiting for middle of June this year, my MA submitted nomination and visa application at the same time back then. Month ago Immigration requested for me to do medical and AFP check which I all submitted 3 weeks ago. Since then haven’t heard anything 

How about you?

My visa nomination was submitted end of Sept and approved on 1st Oct then I applied for the visa. 

My s56 for extra documents (medical and police checks) were requested on 8th Oct.

I had medicals and 1 police check uploaded on 14th Oct and was waiting for my partners AFP check which I uploaded on 8th Nov.

So about 3 weeks as well and I haven’t heard anything further from immigration.

We’ll cross fingers for both of us and for everyone on this forum who waiting for the visa. Hopefully someone will answer on my question, someone with the similar timeline like ours , someone who already get an approval.

Btw, which occupation you are applying for and what state and city?

I know it seems to vary from days, to weeks to months I think we just have to wait until the day comes. 🙈 

 

I’m applying for Youth Work in WA, I was on the old 457 before the changes occurred so I am still able to apply for this occupation.

Is there a way to follow up or remind the department after submitting all the documents, for a decision. These days the department correspondences don't have their contacts or email addresses.

Hi Bips

when I uploaded the documents there was a button online to confirm I had submitted all Documents that were requested. 
I don’t think you can phone or follow up as the recommended processing times are 6 - 13 months so it’s just a matter or waiting until the time comes. 
 

fingers crossed it won’t be much longer 🤞🏻

Hi Guys, 

I was applied 186 TRT with my wife. Just found out they required "Military service documents for my wife" in the upload page, but she doesn’t need to do the Military service back to the country. Only male who need to do the Military service which I was upload them my documents. My concerns is that might be affecting ours pr process time or not?  Has been done the medical exams and status still showing "received" atm. Should we need do anything else or just ignore it and waiting? 🤔

Thanks in advance ☺️

Hi all,

quick question. 

My nomination for a TRT 186 was approved on the 12th of November. I completed my medical on the 11th of November which was cleared on the 15th.

I haven’t heard anything since and the status of my application is still showing as received and the last date updated was the 11th of November.

If a CO opened my file on the 11th/12th would they be able to see that my medical was in process? Would they then wait the standard 4 weeks before looking at the file again?

I haven’t had any S56 or anything at this stage.

I'm no expert but as far as I know, if your visa status is received, they have not opened it at all. So they have only looked at the nomination on its own, not your actual visa application.

ie. They haven't opened it, so regardless of whether your medical did or didn't say it was in progress, nobody was watching so nobody would've seen that status. They will simply open your file at a later date and see that your medical is now complete.

Again, can't say this is definitely correct, just my understanding of it.
