Offshore grants.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

Hope everybody is staying safe in these difficult times. 
We are currently awaiting our 190 visa grant. We are offshore.

When do you all think we will start seeing offshores being granted? Anytime soon.

I know all answers are speculative just curious on people’s thoughts. 
 

All the best

Eddie

We are still seeing permanent visa grants, but not temporary visas. The department is however prioritising onshore and ‘priority’ offshore applications.

I’m guessing priority is just medical related occupations?? 
When do you think they will resume all offshore permanents?

Not really. My friend submitted a 190 as a nurse at the end of Jan, and it's still saying "received".

As Paul mentioned earlier, the DIBP will be focusing on onshore Grants and priority occupations. My migration agency told me the same thing unfortunately.

From what I have read, there will be a focus to have international students return for their next semester, so I believe that non priority offshore PR visa grants will be considered in the coming months.
