ENS (121/856 visa) Timeline

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

The old ENS timeline thread was a bit off topic and out of date. Here's a new one.

 

Submitted: 22/04/2010

Visa: 121

Nomination and application sent together: Yes

Medicals sent simultaneously: Yes

Police checks sent simultaneously: Yes

 

Obviously early days yet...:SLEEP:


ENS 121 submitted 22/04/2010, approved 04/10/2010.

I am in exactly the same position except my IMO was cashed 14/4/10. I have not had any acknowledgement from Perth DIAC. The only reason I know they have received it is because of the IMO being cashed.

I too have already sent the medicals and police checks...

This is more stressful than selling my house!!

 

Heres to waiting......:wub:

Visa: ENS 856 onshore

 

Nomination and application sent together: Yes

 

Medicals sent simultaneously: Yes - Well i thought so. Proof of full visa meds done and mines been accepted as fine but not the spouse and child ones. But case manager doesnt seem to know whats going on and theres been quite a few emails to tell her how to do her job (following advice from immi and sydney of course)

 

Police checks sent simultaneously: Yes

 

 

I love the way they take the money within minutes of recieving the app. But fail to let you know what they need if anything is missing!

Hey theonetruechris...

 

When you say "case manager", is that your migration agent or the case officer at DIAC?

 

Cheers,

 

Mike

Tell me about it!!!! apparently they say that you are supposed to get an answer within 5 months!! so our 5 months will be the 16th May, we will see!!!!! but they are struggling to cope, staff shortages........ so our agent has been told so will more likley be 7 months.......

Sorry aboot that. I created it in Excel 2010 (I'm dead up to date, me) but will work in Excel 2007 and Excel 2003 with with Office Compatibility Pack (Google it).

 

I've imported it into Google Docs (it's not bad actually!) - here's the URL:

I haven't given anonymous users edit permissions, but let me have your Google Docs email address and can add to the editors list. Or mail me your stats.

Thank you, I can now view it.... (only via your link as i am completely crap at computers (the shame))

 

Anyhow i have applied for the 121, nomination sent in jan and approved beginning of feb, police check sent with appication for visa, medicals sent on april 20th.. so I assuming that I am going to have to get another police check done due to length of time this is taking to process...

 

I applied to perth.

 

I think thats all the info you need for the table... (as i said i'm a techno phobe)...

 

Thanks for taking the time again to do the chart, it is really helpful..:notworthy:

Best of luck!

ours took 8 weeks altogether from acknowlegement that the nomination had been passed. The nomination took 3 weeks. So 11 weeks all in. We completed everything, even medicals, police checks etc before we sent it off registered post....except form 80 because we didnt know we had to complete it. Our Case Officer asked us to complete it and we managed to get it back to her within 24 hours. Once your Case officer gets assigned to you it means .... that quite literally they are on the case and should expect an answer within about 10-14 days.

Hi all,

 

I've just started the process for the ENS 121, seeing as nothing much is coming out of my 176 application lodged in Mar 2008!:arghh:

 

Currently in Australia on a 457 and we've just lodged the nomination application on 17th May at Paramatta.

A bit worried as its a very small company, but I've been with them for 4 years now, and the business has been doing pretty well. Fingers crossed!

 

Good luck all :smile:
