I finally got the golden email, below is my timeline:

Occupation: Software Engineer
State: NSW
Stream: 186 Direct Entry
Country: HR
Number of applicants: 1

Nomination Applied: 6 Aug 2019
Nomination Approved: 20 Nov 2019

Visa Applied: 9 Dec 2019
Medical Check: 9 Dec 2019
Medical Check Cleared: 11 Dec 2019
Visa Grant: 12 Dec 2019
IMMI Status: Finalised

In my opinion, I think the longest part was the nomination step. If the nomination step got approved, the visa application date itself doesn't matter as long as your application has everything.

What I did was preparing all documents ready and submitted all required documents altogether for the visa application. If you know that your country police clearance takes time, contact the immigration to request a letter for a penal check letter beforehand while waiting for nomination results. For the correct email address to contact, see URL below:

Heartiest congratulation.

It's not going to happen, I'm afraid.   From what we understand, if an application is straightforward, they start processing it immediately.  If it is not straightforward, they put it aside and move on to the next application.

It's really very strange behaviour of immigration department, they should have to ask first if any info is missing instead of putting the application aside.

And if they follow the FIFO system, everyone would be happy.

But then the question remains, what is considered a straightforward application? My application seems pretty straightforward to me since I've submitted all the required docs and all the checks are done but here I am still waiting since Aug and both Visa and nomination are still showing Received. On the plus side, I'm seeing more visa grants from August recently so hopefully our time will come soon!

 

Also another question, I've noticed some people mentioning High Risk or Low Risk for their countries. Where does one view this list of countries?

I'm not sure but looks like tis refers to risk of tuberculosis. You may find the list of countries here.

Low risk countries are those eligible for an ETA or e-visitor visa.  All other countries are high risk.

Hi Guys, Im a silent reader of this forum. i want to share my ENS 186 experience which is very upsetting. i have applied for my ENS 186 (Nomination and Visa)  in May 2017 as Customer Service Manager. i genuinely worked extreme hard for this company (its kind of company which provide service to client who intending to import or export and logistics) , my nomination refused in Nov 2018 due to training Benchmarks same with my colleague who is working as ICT support officer, disturbingly our both nomination refused on same day, same reason and same case officer. Leaving us with no choice then applying for AAT through one of the known Barrister. We are still waiting on our hearing since Nov 2018 and its very frustrating and anxious. is anyone in this forum on same boat or someone can advise have they been through AAT on same senarion.

 

cheers

Nomination applied on 9th and visa applied on 12th of Aug and status is still Received.

Looks like the processing time for 186 DE has been reduced again! It's now anywhere between 5 to 15 months.
