Hi Experts,

we have applied for 489 SA with 85 points

Primary Applicant : System Administrator, PTE 10 points

Secondary Applicant: System Analyst, PTE 10 points

Received Invitation : 29-Oct-2018

Visa Lodged- 28-Nov-2018

Medical - 07-Dec-2018

In the IMMI account it shows Received, could you please let us know how long will it take to get the grant.

Hi SALMATABBU,

None of us are experts on this thread but happy to share our knowledge and experiences.

No one can tell you how long it will take to get the grant (or even if you will get a grant at all) but if you look at the thread that I've just shared, you'll be able to see how a few of us are getting on and how long we've been waiting for. My IMMI shows as "Received" too.

@JonandSophietravel - Thanks for your efforts. That must have taken ages!

Thanks JetBlast! Took around 45 minutes I think.

I'm at work and a bit bored so I guess technically I've just been paid to make it, so it's all good 🙂

Yeah I think that's a great idea.

Many people have it in their signature but having it all together will help. There are a couple of bigger spreadsheets that have hundreds of people on but it'll be nice to keep one just for us. I'll have a browse through and see if I can make something quick in a bit that isn't an external spreadsheet but can easily be viewed on here....

@JetBlastSorry to hear about the cancellation, you may also look at getting it done outside the country or even after arriving in SA if possible, depending on the urgency of the matter.

There is absolutely no consistency in the number of days to get the grant. It's been 103 days now. My agent says ICT/IT profiles are getting grants, but less known occupations like mine is taking more time. Not sure if there's any merit in his point.

Thanks for sharing, that was just my humble suggestion as it does give me an idea of how everyone in the group is progressing. 🙂

@JonandSophietravel Thank you so much for your work! It's too much to ask from anyone for a casual hangout area. 

Anyway, my MA told me that the average processing time is 8 - 10 months, but the website is not indicating any average processing time.

Anyone has an idea about this?

The last update I had from my MA was from 10 days ago and she said that they're currently working on 489 applications from mid-November. That doesn't really tell estimated timescales but I'm still expecting the 8-10 month figure you've been quoted is the 75% - 90% figure.

Therefore, if we all get direct grants, they would come considerably sooner than 8 months. But if the case officer needed contact, send extra forms etc. then that's probably what pushes it closer to those timescales.

It's clear they're not working within the 75-90 day direct grant timescales that they were when Jimbo & Jetblast got theirs, for example, as Renault is already over 100. However, it might still just be down to good luck or bad luck. If your visa application is at the bottom of a pile of really quick visa applications, then it could be a matter of days. If it's a the bottom of a pile of delayed, complicated ones, it might be much longer. Who knows. I try not to worry any more and just get on with life, assuming it's going to come through in the next month or so.

Today I was supposed to have my procedure on my eye. After that there was nothing stopping me going to Australia.

Hospital cancelled.

I am back on the waiting list. God knows how long it will be.

I doubt. As per the immi tracker and mine own case, feel they're still in the 2nd week of Nov. In the immi tracker it hasn't moved beyond 10th Nov (unless people have not updated)

yeah I am not sure in particular which week of November are they at.

But when I was checking, the last updated date was granted last week and they are at the stage of granting people that submitted the visa in Nov 2018. There are no records of granting the VISA had go beyond submission for Nov 2018.

My MA also confirmed with what you have just said also Joseline.
She has had contact for end of November on some of their applications.
Hopefully things move on a little now.

Yeah I was going by IMMI tracker as showing early Nov but it's great news if your agent has said they're contacting end of Nov now. Hopefully will get a grant within a month 🙂

HENLEY BEACH CREW - NEW LIST

I've gone through quite a lot of this thread trying to find information, but still have a couple of gaps. Please do fill more of you own details, correct any mistakes I might have made and post again. I've extrapolated some of the dates from the wait times so they might be a day or two off. Hopefully the formatting will be easy to keep the same.

It seems like 489 visa is open for this occupation code but under special condition.

We are just a bunch of visa applicants hanging out here to share our experiences, so the information that we are exposed to might be limited.  

If there is complication or complexity that you think exist in your profile, it's best to seek advice with a professional like a Migration Agent.
