Finally had a bit of movement today, my company got a call this afternoon from Home Affairs, asking if I'm still employed, if I was stood down because of Covid and if they see me being employed for the next 2 years. Shortly after my nomination was approved. 

My account is still showing "Received", but fingers crossed for some movement soon.

Thanks for the info, what job role/code did you have, and which state are you in? Also, 186 DE or TRT? Any idea also when your medical cleared in the system? Thank you! 🙂

Hi, apologies I'm not sure what DE or TRT stands for? The Visa just says 186.

My medical cleared on Friday last week, 23/04/21 so it only took one day after that for my Visa which was granted on 24/04/21. I thought this was really quick as my agent said it could take 1-3 months.

I am  based in VIC and am a quantity surveyor. I was on a 457 which was sponsored by my employer and they sponsored the PR.

Thanks for the information - very useful. 186 has two "types", either "Direct Entry" steam or "Temporary Residence Transition" stream - the first one is usually quicker so it's useful to know. It would be stated on your visa grant or application.

Today I went to bank for loan application for buying property. Then home loan specialist checked my permanent residency. It says “186 Temporary resident transition stream”. Then she argued that I was still temporary resident- not permanent resident yet!!!! 🤪😜

Just wondering, did you do Labour Maket Test where you post an ad on jobactive website? if you did, how long was it for? and if now, what was the alternative? 

Besides, how long have you been on 482 for? and do you have any idea if the period on 482 will affect the 186DE application?

Do you work for a large employer with high turnover? Interesting to see if this may impact processing speed
