..and much much more!

Hi all, 

So we have submitted our application for a 190 visa to SA on the 2/2/18, we are yet to hear anything back but we are looking to be moving as soon as possible!! We have just accepted an offer on our house and will be moving in to a rental accommodation (worst case we don't get a visa and we need a bigger house in the uk anyway (hope it doesn't come to that)). We are seriously considering front loading our medicals, police checks and form 80 to speed up the process but our agent is being very cautious. We know that you have 12 months from the date that you do the medicals and PC but if we front load them May/June we will have already had our application submitted 4-5 months out of the 9-12 month wait time and since we will have already sold the house is there much worry in submitting these before they ask us for them?

Front loading does not speed up the process as they just sit in the background until they would have been requested. 

But, if something comes up that prevents you activating the visa, they will cancel it. For example, you up load June 1. They grant 31 May, they will not care you have less than a day to get to Australia.

Have you already been and had your medicals done and received your PCC certificates?

Have you submitted an application for State Sponsorship with SA, or have you lodged a subclass 190 visa application with the Department? There is a big difference.

If you are only at the State sponsorship stage, there is little point doing Medicals yet.

Thanks for your replies,

We have lodged a subclass 190 visa application with the department on 1/2/18

Not done medicals or PC as yet. So we just wanted to know if doing these and front loading them would speed up the process at all for us?

Achieving a faster visa decision

Most 'complete' applications in Priority Groups 3 and 4 can be finalised at the time of assessment.

For your application to be 'complete' undertake health examinations and upload all required documentation to ImmiAccount before the application is allocated for assessment.

Refer to the online document checklist for your visa subclass on our website for details of required information.

Thanks, we have just found this page on the home affairs website. We have also just completed form 80 and 1221 and we are going to call our agent in the morning. 

Has anyone had any experience with front loading? good or bad?!
