Regarding the 888 nomination, this still requires nomination from State or Territory. They will be looking at evidence of you moving the extra 750k to Australia within 2 years of visa grant. The expectation is THA these funds will be used as settlement funds for housing, supporting yourself financially etc.

Missed this earlier, many thanks for the information Steve

We all do not know were we stand. They do not give details on the processing time per case. Base on latest information the time they start processing your visa is probably18-19 month. As they work down the list by date, you never know how many people applied just before you.

You can find the rates here:

and no, you have no options whatsoever, you can only buy the 4 year bonds from TCV at the rates they dictate, which are atrocious even for the current market.

Thanks a lot. Ups, 0,5% is very low. Well, did not expect anything exiting here. This is for Victoria. I suppose NSW will be similar.

I think you will find this incorrect. The age limit is a “time of decision” criteria not “time of application”. Thus the most likely outcome is that you will be requested to withdraw her from the application.

We are waiting now 16 months. So you are 2 month behind us. There is someone 6 weeks before us, and they do not have any feedback by now. Most likely you have to wait another 6 month.

Oh, that sounds like bad news. Can you tell us what kind of additional documents they asked for? Did you have to do the medical again, as it is valid generally only 1 year?

I think there are lots of reasons why it take so long. First of all, there are more applicants than visas. They have a sealing for business visas of about 6,800 p.m. It used to be 7,200. But they have far more applicants. I read an article, maybe one year old, that about 20,000 were in the queue. The number for 188B is very low, but I think 188A and 132 have big numbers. We are getting closer to the end of the fiscal year. So maybe they are close to the sealing. Second, there is a review of the 188B visa and of the general concept of business visas going on. It might cause a delay as well. They are discussing to increase the AUD 1,5m as well as maybe reducing the visa options. 

COVID-19 might slow it down as well. Right now only citizen and PR are allowed to enter the country. So, if we get the 188B, which is temporary, will we be able to enter Australia on a special permit or not? Not sure. Most probably there are some of the case officers  in HK and in Adelaite which are not working due to the virus. 

So I have no real answer to your question, but the same worries that the visa process is delayed right now due to several reasons.

June 2019. You migh have to wait till 2022. Processing is in order of applications. Most probably timing is far more than 24 month.

I suspect that many staff have simply been reallocated to work seen as being of a higher priority at the moment. Business visa grants appear to have pretty much ground to a halt.
