Thanks for reply nemesis, a friend of mine moved to Australia a few years back and I thought he said two years.

 

Do you submit your medicals when you are invited to apply or are they asked for later on? So it would be 1 year from the time the Australian gov ask for them?

Its a year from when you do them. So if you do them early, before they are actually requested, you are shortening the probable time you will get for validating.

Has anyone who submitted in nov/December been asked to supply further evidence? If so how long did it take from submitting asked evidence to get a response from CO?

We got our grant! 190 sponsored by NSW  

For those that are interested the timeline was:

190 EOI submitted early October 2017

20th October - NSW invite

30th October - submitted documents to NSW

22nd December - NSW sponsorship confirmed and 190 invite received 

16th Jan - submitted 190 visa application. We did the medical a few days later 

18th April - case officer asked for police certificates 

27th April - submitted police certificates 

7th June - visa granted

I think if we’d submitted the police certificates at the start we’d have got a direct grant in April. It was a question I asked on here at the time and some people advice against front loading everything in case you then don’t have much time to move. We aren’t in a huge rush so no issue, but for those who are it might be worth considering ...

Received communication from the Immi Dept on 24 May.

CONGRATS!!! Thats amazing! We also got our grant yesterday (7th June) we submitted our 190 visa application for SA on 1st Feb and we also tried our best to get all our medical and checks done before the CO contacted us but just missed out getting in our police checks due to the May bank holiday! The CO contacted us on 7th May and we submitted the same day and we were granted a month later!!! YAY!! looking at heading off in September.

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to give a bit of hope to those out there waiting. I received my grant yesterday without any CO contact. I was devastated by the 8-11 month processing time (which was 9-12 when I submitted) in February. In addition, I looked at my immiaccount all of the time, and it never ever updated from received (I was waiting for it to say initial assessment, etc), but since it had never changed I thought I would be waiting the full time period. However, on Monday night it said received and by Tuesday afternoon I had a grant letter in my email. 

Hope the theory that things pick up in July due to the new fiscal year is true for all of us. If there are any other nurses out there who will be relocating to the Melbourne area, please reach out to me! I'd love to make some new friends who also went through this crazy process.

Hi, 

Congratulations! 

Can I ask, I assume you front loaded all your documents? Did thus include the form 80 as well?

Thank you x

Hi @LauraHol89,

I did front load everything including medicals, police checks, form 1221, and form 80. Any form that I could find that somebody mentioned them needing I just submitted in case. In addition, someone mentioned they were asked for an Australian Police check even though they had only ever visited Australia once for 3 weeks. Considering I've visited 7 times for 2-4 weeks at a time, I decided to go ahead and do this too just to be safe. 

Hope this helps!

Hello Nemesis,

I lodged my application on July 12th and submitted all the forms and PCC except my medicals. Do you think its better to go ahead and get the medicals done or should i wait for a CO to actually request that from me? 

I am a bit confused as i am also reading that once the CO contacts you for anything then you go back in the pool and will be waiting again for a long time. 

Also, i am seeing a lot of Direct grants. So this means these applicants have uploaded all the required documents upfront yeah?

Would be great if anyone could provide some clarification. 

Thanks,

Sonia

Hi Sonia

From what I have read I don't think you have to submit medicals at the start so I don't think you go back into the pool, it will obviously take a little longer with having to get your medicals done and sent through.

I was asking as I want enough time to save up cash before emigrating.

I thought you had 2 years to validate your visa but it's 1 year from submitting your medicals.
