Looking at some of the other threads, some folk are getting them through pretty quickly.

I'm not sure i would get medicals done yet - if the process is still the same, if/when SS comes through you'll then lodge application with DIAC who need the medicals and police checks. DIAC processing times for 176 WA SS cases might come down, but if they don't and you do your medicals etc too early they may expire before your visa is processed? Think they expire after 12 months.


WA SS granted 05/09/2009, 176 applied 04/10/2009, visa grant 08/02/2011, landed Perth 08/04/2011!! Now the fun really starts...

Yeah I am thinking the same as you and have noticed that not a lot of approvals for WA at the moment coming through.

 

By the way well done on your SS

I'm the second applicant on a visa where the primary applicant is Architect.
