Something very strange has happened...

Recommended Posts

...to cut a long story short:

 

We lodged our 175 (CSL) visa on 01/02/10 (just ahead of the MODL announcement - phew!), and I duly sat back and waited, thinking it was going to take a while for anything to happen. We applied (via our agent) for WA State Sponsorship on 30/11/09 and I had a "funny feeling" on Monday that I'd get an email from her to say we'd got SS and could now got to a 176 and be pushed up the priority ladder - WRONG!!!

 

Got an email (as predicted) from our agent saying we needed to provide some employment references, penal clearances and get medicals booked. We've got a Case Officer!!! :eek:

 

I'm still in a state of shock!

 

Has this happened to anyone else recently?

 

Our agent thinks it's due to the the skills we've applied under (OH is a Computer Professional - Datawarehouse specialist). Our in-laws have just had their contributory parent visa granted so we wondered if the two had somehow been linked.

 

Anyway, a question for anyone who's had medicals with existing conditions to take into consideration - how long does it typically take for a medical consultant to prepare a specialist report? We are having our medicals on 01/04 (booked yesterday) - I've just sent a letter to a hospital consultant asking for a specialist report and am hoping in can be turned around in less than 2 weeks :unsure:

Hi Lisa, congrats on CO!! It took us about 6 weeks to get sons report I think, I'd just phone and explain when you need it by and they should sort it for you!! I know if you have an existing medical condition they like to have seen you relatively recently and have there "findings" in the report.

Hi Lisa,

 

it looks like they don´t have too much cases falling into category 3...LOL

 

I have seen a lot of Category 5 visas being issued, and deduced that they are finishing all the other categories. But since it´s priority, anyone who falls in categories 1-4 will have their visas processed very fast.

 

Congratulations!


Visa type: 175 - IELTS: 10/07/2008 - Skills Assessment: IE 01/05/2009 - Applied DIAC: 11/06/2009 - Asked for NSW Sponsorship: 29/01/10 Received: 02/02/10 - Case officer: 10/03/11 - Medicals and PCCs: 12/04/11 - SS from NSW Withdrawn: 01/06/2011 - Grant Visa: 03/06/11

My sons consultant did it within a week (I did work at the hospital and picked it up myself), he was also still under the consultants care so I don't know if this made it easier administratively with the records being readily available. For myself, I contacted my GP and got copies of letters sent by my consultants to the GP


I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

I had this dilemma with meds, so I went to a private clinic and paid for a report from a specialist (£250) and it got sent with my meds to Oz and referred to MOC and passed 10 days after referral.
