190 (offshore) June 2017 submissions

Recommended Posts

Hi.

We lodged our application with DIBP at the very end of June and just wondered as and when anyone lodging around a similar time to let me know when they get a CO etc etc. Just be good to see how they are processing applications for 190s at the moment. 

Cheers

You won't know if a CO has been assigned unless they ask for something. The first contact we had with our CO was when they asked for Form 80. We uploaded it the same day and had the visa grant the next morning. Sometimes no news is good news!

Thanks for the message. I guess they will want our meds and police checks so perhaps I'll complete them as planned late August anyway and sit and wait! 

Thanks again

Hi IIodza, 

Should we put back our medicals? They are booked for latter half of August? Visa application was end of June - don't want them to lapse. The Police checks I'm not too worried about as it's £90 but meds of nearly £800 I don't want to pay again! Cheers

They are only valid for 12 months and you have to validate the visa within that time. In your shoes I'd be waiting until the CO requested them.

Nemesis - I think I'll see if the CO requests one and if not I'll put it back by 4 weeks. We have our Police checks from July but I can always do these again if needed. Some people seem to think we may get a visa grant around January/February 2018 - which would be fine - it's just if it's May / June it will make things a bit tight in terms of timings etc. Thanks for the heads up though. I'll see what's requested and when. Cheers

IIodza - I think all the changes have impacted on timings a bit as well

Also applied mid June - 190, SA. No news however we ploughed ahead and did our health and police checks. MARA agent is prepping the form 80s for if/when requested.

What state are you all going for?

Hi

We are 190 ACT nominated. Our agent lodged the visa application on 29th June. We completed Form 80's and one of two Police Certificates are back. Meds booked for latter half of August. As of last week no CO had made contact with our agent so just waiting. Hoping they will request the meds etc over the next couple of weeks and then try and wait patiently!

Hi matt, im Act nominated too and lodged my application on 5th June without using an agent. I think it's a good idea to keep updating of our status on this thread as there are not many act cases. I'm onshore applicant and submitted all docs required including pcc and med but still no contact from co.

We have had a CO assigned 24th July and has asked for my PCC (other halfs already uploaded and mine requested a week ago) and the medicals. We have 28 days to do this but as long as we have a medical booked and tell them we can go past this date. We have ours booked for jus over three weeks time so should be fine. I guess it's a waiting game now!

Not been asked for that. Just police certificates and meds. Had already uploaded several P60s , letters from HMRC and reference from recent employer for past 7 years and as of yet they haven't requested anything additional.

I think 1399 is to do with military service so not everyone has to do it.

Anyone had any further contact?

My agent has said that our medicals have been uploaded and finalised.

I doubt we will hear anything until the New Year now judging by the new processing times!
