Don’t wanna demotivate anyone but this is harsh reality.

187 is not as similar as before. In last few months we have seen the huge drop in percentage of PR approvals.

Top of that they announced the abolishment of 187 visa which clearly indicates that they don’t support this visa anymore.

Now come to the processing time, waiting is ridiculous and we all know that. They kept on increasing the processing time. Did anyone realised why? No immigration is not busy or short of staff, they just wanted to get of rid this visa as simple as that.

They are more keen for DAMA and people getting their nomination within a week. But again who knows what is gonna happen after 3 years. 

I am in the same boat as all of you have been waiting and waiting. But honestly speaking don’t just rely on 187, get your back up plan first. Once they denied our visa we will only have 28 days and rush decisions are always gamble. 

We might call this our bad luck that why only 187 but we have to accept it and have to try again. So get your back up plans consulting with good migration agent without wasting any time.

Cheers

I can understand your frustration. I saw in 186 forum people are getting their nomination and visa  after 2 months their submit their application. How come they process their visa in 2 months not ours.

Today on 18th of April 2019 my family finally got PR. It's without any further requested document (Nomi and Visa grant at same date and same time) I am happy to share more information, if I can help. Feel free to ask and good luck everyone!

I checked this website everyday especially this year, no words can describe our feeling and it was just very painful to wait. But I wish my case can give the hope to other family and best wish for everyone.

 

This below information is my timeline. 

Plus a little tip which I guess it was helpful was

1. My family had a medical check on middle of Feb, 2019 by ourselves. (MA or Immigration didn't say anything, but we just wanted to be done before CO open our files.)

2. My family uploaded document file regularly. (After we applied to Visa, we added some evidence files regularly and continuously)

: I mean my MA suggested to made a evidence of work duty. So we made a couple of evidence files like emails with clients or something like that.  And uploaded recent payslip.

3. Australian police check

: My family had a Australian police check around April of 2018 and it was already expired, because one year passed. So we recently updated again with new one.

4. My family tried to uploaded every files which might Immigration request like partner's English, Australian police check, our home country police check, work evidence, payslip, skill assessment, etc.

5. my child's new passport with recent photo.

Some of my friend who recently got PR said that the passport photo can cause some troubles sometimes if the child is growing up much compare to the season when they made a passport.

I mean if child made a first passport when they were 1 year old something like that and now the child's current age is like 4 years old. the passport photo is much different. So I changed my child's passport with new photo even though the passport expired date is still ok.

Hope this can a little help.

6. Recently when I checked this website, the sponsor's turnover seemed very important and crucial for the PR. but actually my sponsor company is very small business. So its not maybe effect 100%. I depend on the occupation or each situation. So don't lose your hope even though the sponsor's business is small like my case.

Occupation: Accountant
State: QLD
Stream: 187 DE
Number of applicants: 3 people (me, my wife, my child)
RSMS 187 Visa and Nomination and application applied :  12 Dec 2017
Nomination / Visa Approved (same date without any further request document) : 18 April 2019
IMMI Status: Finalised (Even last night on 17th of April, it was still received. but today it just change to Finalised straight away)
Documents  Requested : Nothing, just got the PR without any further requested document.

HI , 

Applied 187- office manager

nomination has been approved , asked to do medical after medical ,they have requested further evidence on qualification and work experience relevant to your nominated occupation. Actually I have done master in ICT and 1 year profession year program. , I have 5 and half year experience as office admin. I applied for visa on 28 July 2018. I am worried as when I applied I have already proved strong evidence of of work and study. Don't know what they want ?

for office manager do I have to study accounting instead of ICT, so WIRED if I had experience in ICT why would I be apply 187 I will be applying 189 don't know what they want ?

Does anyone know will this effect the visa grant .

Congratulation that your nomination approved. only one step you left now. You said you already submitted enough evidence of work but Co requested again. In my case when I applied  TEMPORARY GRADUATE (subclass 485), even though I submitted all the files, sometimes CO requested to get the SAME file again. For example even though I updated Australian police check, CO asked me to resub same file. So in your case, Co might doesn't find out the work evidence file from our folder or want to see more information I guess.

The other question is you have a plan to apply 189 visa, one of my friend applied 187 and 189 at the same time last year and 189 visa granted first (the processing time is much quicker than 187 as everyone know) and at the same time 187 was on the initial assessment. So after 189 visa granted, he withdrew 187. because 187 visa doesn't have 100% guarantee, my friend thought. (but each person's view must be different of course) plus MA also suggested that it's better to withdraw 187 (189 is more safe MA said in my friend's case).

Hope this helps you a little bit.

We in same boat. Further assessment for almost 2months now. Had lot of expereince that in the field prior to me graduating as a social worker. Then I have 2years and 3month post graduate expereince. All these evidence have been submitted. I am equally worried.  we might be able to support eachother with some expereince

One funny thing...

If nominations are approved in 186 then most likely within 4 weeks your visa is ready..

Unlike 187 which has an eternity wait..

God only knows why they are slowing process.

Infact 187 is only visa in Australia now with the longest wait period.

Hello everyone,

I applied for my 187 RSMS visa and nominations both in January 2018 (occupation- Graphic pre-press). I already started to work with my sponsored employer on same date and he is paying market salary rate and super.

My concern is, this occupation is not popular as compared to others occupation and my employer really need me to work with him as he tried to find local skilled people but he couldn’t find any so then after he sponsored me.

There are 4 apprentice working in this company as well with 14 other full time staff and all are citizens here except me.

we also submitting my payslips and BAS Statment since we lodged my file.

Is anyone have any  ideas about any other strong documents which we can attach to our file to minimise waiting time?

what are  the key documents immigration is focusing on rsms visa to finalise application quickly?

I heard that many people got their visa in very short time without any drama.

 Thanks.
