Bear in mind there are plenty of cases where this is not true, ie. nomination and visa do not have similar wait times and are not granted together. I had previously been led to believe this was true also, but found out the hard way that's not how it works!

Hi my nomination approved on 22 jan and since that visa status is further assessment , can anybody please tell me how many days or weeks or months most of the visa finalise after nomination approved?

@samiee Unfortunately, no one would be able to confirm this as it's completely dependent on the visa application and no 2 are the same. 

- It should be quick (as they've now likely looked at it), however, I would expect the worst and hope for the best (15 more months vs 1 month).

There's a good analogy I like using for questions like this: It's like trying to answer "how long is a piece of string". There's just to much unknown i'm afraid. 

All the best, hopefully It's a quick turn-around.

Which is why I said "usually". Average processing times are just that - averages. But where someone has lodged a straight forward application that meets all the requirements, they will generally fall into the average processing times - or beat them.

Yes, @Marcus De Witt Ryall, what you said was perfectly reasonable. I'm here for the people read this sort of thing, myself included, and subconsciously translate it as: as long as their case is straightforward, surely it will fall in the majority who are quick.

This means people start to panic that a long wait means that there's something wrong - it's a cause of endless distress for visa applicants.

So, I'm trying to highlight that you can have a perfectly straightforward case and still wait many months between nomination and visa. Just as @Hex said - expect the worst, hope for the best.

Hi All,
I have a doubt regarding medical examination, I had a medical examination(test and xray) and PCC for my 482 visa last year in April 2019 and now MA has lodged 186DE on 31st Jan 2020.
In case if my nomination is approved after April, can the officer ask me to get the new medical and PCC or does this depend on when the file is lodged? 
Shall I get the HIV test done for my PR  application with the same HAP ID used in April 2019 or I have to generate a new ID for that?

Hi,

Please clarify about Visa Processing time ( for example for 186 DE it is 5 to 6 months). Is the duration starts from:

 Nomination submission date
Or
Nomination approval date
Or
Visa application submission date

Or ??? 

Also consider S56 Additional docu request and submission interval. Will this time be not counted?

Thanks in advance.
