Visa 489 State timelines

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I'm just wondering what everyone's status's are for their 489 State visa timelines.  If you have lodged and waiting, can you let me know?

We have been waiting since 10th August 2017, so it's been 6.5 months.  We're hoping it'll be this side of 6-8 months than the 8 months.  We have lots to sort out this side of the world :|

 

Looking forward to all your responses.......

They said the visa will be on hold until the end of March 2018 or the early week of April.

I've heard a few people still getting 489 grants this month. Nothing anywhere on internet or forums about it being on hold....

I can't imagine that all 489s are on hold when there is nothing to that effect on the immigration website and no agent has commented about it on here

Agreed, seems strange that's theirs is taking so long. But every case is different and theirs may be complicated or issues have occurred. Fingers crossed everyone get the news they're waiting for soon!

I woke up this morning to find that after around 7 months and 1 week, I had an email to say that we have been granted a visa :biggrin:image.gif.4b34eb9587aba132885d0634bb419a4c.gif. Our Initial Entry Date is 30th August.

I was hoping that by 8 months we would hear back.

Thank you all so much for your helpful advice image.gif.d7a4124df4025f55d8ae44b365710761.gifxx
