Hi palaceboy1. Our queue position has gone up by 240 since the last update. Do you know the date when the queue was last updated before this update by any chance? Just trying to constantly work the figures. I am finding your updates really helpful. Also do you know how often they update the queue? I try not to look for a few months at a time as it is disappointing to check when there has been no movement.

Last updated 03/08/2018 what is your queue date ?. They seem a bit hit and miss with the updating sometimes monthly and then nothing for months.

Thank you for that. The rate I sent is the actually transferring rate which is always a bit lower. I just sent $5K over via XE

The queue does seem to be moving faster than the stated times - this is from another forum on pomsinoz from “Garvey”

 

Lodged 143 visa 30th June 2015, police checks and medicals requested and supplied April/May 2018. AoS confirmation and bond paid August 2018. Waiting to hear about final payment and visa date. All correspondence sent via our immigration lawyers.

Strange that our lodgement date is only 5 weeks later but we’ve had nothing requested yet.  I presume it comes via our agent?

That is fantastic news so great to see there is some kind of movement. It gives the rest of us an idea that we looking at maybe 3.5 years worse case scenario. Personally counting on 3 years and 3 months as I am on 173 I won't have the hassle of the horrendous AOS delay.

You also need to be aware of the lengthening times for these visas - an application now is probably looking at over 5-6 years wait and the possibility of problems arising affecting the medicals.   Im in a similar age group so have my own doubts even though my application was in June 2017 when processing times were allegedly around 2 years! 

2014 applicants are currently waiting well over 3 years and there are currently around 50000 on the wait list for CPV visas. 

Sorry Im not being pessimistic just  realistic! If you do decide  to go ahead its best to get the application in ASAP  as further delays also  run the risk of the visa charges increasing. Good luck!

It is a very difficult decision when your home country is in your soul. I just love the British countryside, birdsong, history and it would be so much to leave behind but is seeing family just maybe once a year enough, especially as we age and travelling may become more difficult.  As my son says, it would be ridiculous to pay the cost of the CPV if we're not definite about using it, but if we're still uncertain at the time it's eventually granted I feel it wouldn't be wise to abandon the opportunity.  If we did then find we definitely needed to be in Australia for some reason it would be awful to have to start the lengthy process all over again.  I expect as it takes so long for visa granting now, when the time eventually arrives there'll be no more indecision and we'll be going but I don't enjoy the turmoil in my mind at present.
