Where have all the visa grants gone?!

    Recommended Posts

    Hi everyone,

    So, I can't help but notice that October grants are well below the usual grant rate? I know September was a massive month (one of the trackers reporting as many as 270 PR grants in the month) much more than the usual, but so far in October less than a handful. Does anyone know why this might be? Even if you don't include September its still way below the average. I could make some assumptions about why but, if anyone has more experience or has some information that would be great!

    Maybe the grants are just going to the vast majority of applicants who don't use things like trackers?

    Oh I remember my time on the tracker like it was yesterday... Wondering how possibly anyone who applied after me got a visa grant first. Why was there a delay? Is there a problem with my application? In hindsight I just realised it took as long as it took and there was no point getting wound up by it, easier said than done!

    I suspect it's immitracker, just google it.

    The sample of people on there is poor in my opinion so I personally don't use it. It can be helpful for a very loose guide on where EOI's are at or visa grants are but the forums fill that purpose close enough for me.

    There used to be a tracker in which you'd volunteer some details and add it into the tracker. When people received their visa grant they'd update it. Therefore it was a visual way of seeing when they applied and when they received their grant. You could see a basic trend and speed of grant from this. I used to enjoy watching the updates daily... But then querying why not me? When a visa was issued on the same day that I had applied!

        Hi all,

        I have received an invite for 189 and want to apply for visa asap.
        However, I just left Australia for a longer trip. My partner is still in Australia during this time, though she will visit me abroad during my trip.

        Question:
        If I apply for 189 while being outside of Australia, will my partner get a bridging visa if she is in Australia during my application? 

        I do not really need a bridging visa, since I hold e-visitor visa and can stay in AU up to 3 months at a time. I do travel often anyway, so I can easily just use my current visa until I get 189.
        My partner, however, holds a visa that expires soon, so for her getting bridging visa is very important.

        Ideally I want to apply while offshore, then come to Australia on my e-visitor visa to stay with my partner. 
        Will she get a bridging visa if she is in Australia during application, but I am not in the country?

        Thanks.

        Hey everybody. I've looked all through the forum archives to try and find an answer to my query so i didn't have to start a new thread but i've had no joy.
        You get points for qualifications, but do the qualifications have to be relevant to the occupation? My girlfriend will be the primary applicant as veterinary nurse but she has a BA Degree in Textiles - will that degree get her further points or does she have to use the qualification attached to vet nursing? it's much lesser and will give less points.
        Thanks, Lewis

        Hi, everyone.
        I want to know that if I apply for a state nomination onshore and receive it during my overseas vacation(offshore).
        In this circumstance, can I lodge the 190 visa application offshore? or I need to do it until I back to Australia?
        Are there any regulations or case about that? 
         
        Thanks very much for your help.

        Hey All,
        I'm just wondering if anyone has had any experience with trying to get a skills assessment in plastering by completing a fast track NVQ level 3 course, i have all the experience required apart from the qualifications! Is a Fast track NVQ course a possibility?
        Thanks
        Jess
