Shobi777, if you go to immi.gov.au, and then go to help and support and click on contact us, there is a couple of boxes relating to things, tick and another page comes up, scroll down and try to find one similar to what you have applied and then send a contact form to enquire with your visa TRN number if you have it from application and see if you et a response, I did this and that is how I found out at the time my nomination was successfully lodged but not approved.

Melbkitty,

They upload the medicals and they that is usually the last thing the case officer is waiting for before they grant the visa

If the co ask you to do this

he/she will give you a hap id

the result will be given to co directly according to this ID

you need not to do anything after the body check

I heard an interesting bit of news today. Immi is working to hire some retired CO's on contract to help deal with the backlog, my contact expects to be working in the next couple of weeks. The "target" processing time, for a complete "decision ready" file, once a CO is assigned is half a day, or in other words, they are targeting two decisions per CO per day.

Hi,

 

Does anyone know what happens if you leave your company soon after being granted an ENS 186 permanent residency? I know it's frowned upon but do they really chase people up on it?

Can anyone advise? I am applying direct entry and had my nomination approved within 2 days of applying back in December. Unfortunately I couldn't lodge my application at that time as I was waiting for police clearance checks to come back. Made my full application with all medicals etc on 12th of feb. is there any advantage of applying after the nomination was approved in terms of time taken to grant the visa or am I at the back of the queue and processed according to application date?

 

fyi contacted the case officer who approved the nomination at the Perth office. They are processing November applications currently.

Hi drsury

we are on the same boat, my nomination was approved on Jan, and submitted the visa application at the end of Jan

I think we have to come to back of the queue as the visa application date.

The only difference is there is a case officer's name on my visa application acknowledge letter,

maybe it means I have a co already, maybe not , I am not sure.

 

I did not get a word from the submission of my application to right now.
