ENS (121/856 visa) Timeline

Recommended Posts

Guest mikewheble
Having a bit of a mare with it currently. Trekked down to the DIAC dept today and dropped off Form 80 along with new photographs but it seems they have lost our Australian Police Checks!! So hopefully they will accept the copies. Getting in touch with the Case Officer has been like pulling teeth. Doesn't reply to fax, email or phone call and not at her desk today. Will let you know how we go as soon as we get any news.

 

I hope things improve for you as it's the last thing you need being so close to the Christmas break. I'm sure they will accept the copies especially if they have admitted that they have lost them.

 

I suspect mine will be issued to a case officer post Christmas as everything seems to be slowing down.

 

Regards

Mike

hi

CO will send u or ur RMA (if u hav one) pre grant letter and ask you travel within 28days.and make sure you tell your CO ur travel dates by sending him itinerary.Have you already planned to go somewhere ? if not i recommend u to go to fiji (if u can go to NZ without applying a visa then go to NZ) its easy and low airfare as well.about visa evidencing i know fiji immigration doesnt need visa label on your passport you can fly next day for australia but make sure u hav grant letter with u(not pre grant letter).normally it take only one day for CO to issue grant letter but always have spare time if something happen

 

let me know if you wanna ask anything about fiji or NZ (my friend went to NZ)

 

things you need to take care when he/she send you pre grant letter

1) dont change your departure dates when u hav already informed your CO about it,u can change arrival dates

2) when you send itinerary to CO ask for confirmation from him/her so you know he/she has noted down

3) do some research about the high commission you going to sometime they closed for holiday(just in case u lost ur documents ,passport)

\

gud luck.ur visa wil not be far away,i got my visa same day about 2hours after my nomination approved

Can somebody tell me, is it really that much faster to send the nomination and visa application together?

 

My nomination is nearly ready to go but I might be waiting for 2 or 3 months for TRA. Should I send the nomination now?

 

Your opinions would be appreciated, thanks

The first part of our visa (employers nomination) has been approved. How long should we have to wait before a case officer is assigned? We sent off all our details for our part of the visa (121) in October. What sort of time scale should we now be looking at to completion?

Hi All...I am new to this forum. My agent has lodged my ENS decision ready application on dec 1st and received the ackn for nomination and visa on dec 5th. I have sent an email to DIAC on 19th Dec regarding the CO allocation. I got reply yesterday which is 20th Dec syaing that Co has been allocated and my application is processing. Usually how many days does it take for the case finalisation once the CO is allocated.

 

thanks in advance.

Sorry if I am repeating the question here but what is a Form 80 and does everyone need it.

 

I am currently on a 457 and my company is sponsoring me for my 856. Applied in Sept 4th with Nom and App together. I have provided police checks and medicals but yet to be allocated a CO. Can anyone offer advice as to any more forms info that is required. (I know that the CO may ask for more info), I meant anything other than the medicals and police checks that they will definately require.

 

Thanks

Hi! did you email DIAC yourself to find out if CO has been allocated or did your RMA email on your behalf? Can you give me the email add of DIAC because I'd like to know also. Thanks.

hi brill

this might help u

if you hubby applying for 457 visa you dont need any IELTS

but if you applying for permanent visa 121/856 you need 4.5 bands average of four modules( not each)

and if he apply for 457 visa and when u eligible for 121/856 in future (which is 2years) u still need IELTS by that time

or there is way if you dont wanna do IELTS which u will not like pay higher fees which is $4300

@ Doing a Geographical,

 

My company sent nomination in Aug 23rd and we're still waiting on that now. Have not put my visa application in yet (856). Looking at the forms and so on I was under the impression that the nomination and visa have to be lodged together or the nomination has to be approved before the visa can be lodged if lodging separately. But reading on this thread it seems a fair few have lodged nomination separately and then visa application after without the nomination approval.

 

In my opinion it seems you're best off lodging both at the same time through a migration agent who can certify it decision ready (DRC) as this seems to save months ( if you can afford the $$$$!!). If that can't be done I think lodge nomination and visa application together. Just my opinion.

 

I thought just getting the company nomination approved would take a month or two, but has taken since August now and the visa application could take months too. If only I knew then what I do now...:-)

 

 

Can somebody tell me, is it really that much faster to send the nomination and visa application together?

 

My nomination is nearly ready to go but I might be waiting for 2 or 3 months for TRA. Should I send the nomination now?

 

Your opinions would be appreciated, thanks

 

 

 

@ Brill, yes Vikas is right, 4.5 Ielts avg for functional English for a dependent.

My mums nomination took 5 months at parra -then she submitted the application after and it too just 4 weeks for the applicaton to be approved by DRC through an agent

 

We have submit our nomination and application together and its 7 months friday - We have a case officer but still awaiting contact from them. Ours wasnt a DRC - to be honest with the amount of applications they have its hard to see a sequence with the apps. Everyone is different and has different circumstances too.

 

I just hope we all have good news to post soon, whether that be a nomination approval or application too.

 

Lets hope 2012 brings us all good news. :)

@ Roberts13,

 

Indeed, good luck to all!

 

Looking at the spreadsheet, we'll just have to be patient, as Tolstoy said:

 

[h=1]“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”[/h]

But, you're surely due a decision soon...

Hi,:confused:

 

Finally i am ready to lodge my documents ENS-856.

I have a little doubt and so glad if any one can help me out with the following.

I am going to submit my documents as Non-DRC with out the help of any RMA.

 

How can i provide evidence on following?

"Evidence of having worked full-time in Australia for at least 2 years in the nominated occupation, PLUS Evidence of having worked for the nominating employer for at least 12 months immediately prior to visa application"

 

Do I have to provide them all 2 years salary slips? or is it enough to get a letter from my company?

What else the should i submit? I already got a copy of Nomination Approval Letter too.

 

Thanks

Samee
