How did you provide pending doc on the same day? Certificate of Clearance require at least 2-3 weeks on my end!

 

Mine took almost a month! They only responded after 2 weeks and another 2 weeks to make an appt for fingerprinting. :arghh:

One grant today for 190 lodged in Jun 2017 .

Why are our grant pending for so long? My friends who applied in late 2015 and early 2016 had theirs approved within 3-4 mths :sad:

Anyone else with grants today?

Wish we knew the answer to that. Its just a long, mind numbing, boring wait for every one.

Wow @Paul7. The feeling of relief must be incredible! No more waiting for you... that's it now! I'm so looking forward to that day!

Good news for those heading to SA as the Adelaide office are obviously in gear now. I'm heading to Victoria so goodness knows which 'office' deals with me!

As far as I'm aware there's a Brisbane team and an Adelaide team but which teams sort the rest?

Excellent news - but also soo unfair!

I have submitted a 190 visa for the same occuptation, but I submitted mine on the 2nd March! I had C/O contact 3 weeks later and submitted Police and Med checks on the 30th March and still waiting! I wish there was some logic that could be applied to understand when I can expect my visa to be approved.

Please don't get me wrong, very happy that visas are being issued and other people are being successful - I guess I can just hope that my approval isn't too far behind your grant.

Totally understand this feeling. I'm pleased for others and every grant that comes through brings us a step closer to our own. But I lodged on 1st Feb and would like there to have been some kind of date order to the processing as it does feel unfair!

I have visions that there is a desk in a office somewhere with a big pile of applications. New applications are plonked on top and instead of trying to get to the ones at the bottom, they are just picking the ones off the top.

I'm guessing there is some logic behind their decisions, but also wonder if they need another Quality Assurance Manager <cough> <cough> to help improve their visa grant system. :)

Hope (for all really) that we get to hear some good news soon.

Hi all,

In case you haven't heard of it.

Brilliant for seeing when people get their invites compared to when they submitted. And same for visa grants etc....

If as many people could upload their basic case details (no personal info required). Only the details you see in the signatures of folks in this forum.Then it would be awesome to keep track of the progress being made for those in your own job code etc and just in general. Currently not too many secondary teachers on there at the EOI stage so would be nice to see more of those:)

Hope it is ok to post this here.

Thanks
H

I've done a bit of reading on this (borders website) and it seems to be all to do with each state filling their places and in order of which occupations they need the most. Aus allocate about 28,000 places to state nominated visas and each state fill them in priority order according to what they need most - not necessarily date order. @Pete_Solihull which state have you applied to? It may be that Adelaide need your occupation more than other states hence the reason why someone else with the same occ has been granted first? If you've applied to Adelaide too however, then that's that theory out!

As far as I know, they're not listed anywhere. I'll do a bit of Googling to see if I can find out...

We have applied to SA and hope to move to Adelaide too. So yes, we are a bit puzzled why we are still waiting - I'm guessing that my application is in someone else's pile to process and Paul7 has just been lucky to be processed quicker than ourselves.

Great news, Paul7. 

As we are all so fed up with all this wait, perhaps it is good to have something more relaxing. I have been living in Melbourne for nearly 7 years so if anyone goes to Melbourne and would like to chat about school, accommodation, etc. I am happy to help.

This scares me as my nominated occupation was removed from the Tasmania list at the start of July. My agent said that because our visa application was sponsored, lodged and fees paid I had nothing to worry about... I wonder if that removal will doom me to the bottom of the pile?
