Hey there,

 

just received the mail telling me that I have been granted sponsorship and that the from 1100 has already been send to the DIAC.

 

Thanks to you guys for all the hints and tips and for writing about your applications. I was always happy to read when things went well for you, and finally I also can post good news.

 

I'm just wondering what hills I will have to climb next? What could inflluence the decision of the DIAC? Or is it just a matter of time now, that I will get a visa?

 

And what's with the medicals? Has anyone already had the examination? What exactly are they looking for? Would it be better to quit my sloppy lifestyle and fancy some sports? Or are the doctors checking medical conditions I can't influence anyway?

 

I feel sooo close to the finish line now...

Hi

 

I have similar questions like you. What are the circumstances when DIAC can deny someone's visa application, despite meeting all the criteria?:skeptical: Can the skill assessed by assesing authority be turned down by DIAC? If yes, under what circumstances?

 

Anyone with experience & knowledge please help in our quest....Cheers!!!

BigBob,

You have me down as visa granted on 22 August. Unfortunately this is not the case. I am still waiting to hear from them. Apparently my application has gone for further security checks and therefore no decision has been made. It is certainly taking its time!!

Hi Nice people:

 

I lodged online 176 on 29 Oct 2011. On 01 Nov 2011 ACT Govt confirmed through an email that they have sent Form 1100 to DIAC. Now in the list of uploaded documents I do not see any Form1100. How can we be sure that Form 1100 has really been sent by ACT to DIAC? :unsure:

 

Cheers........

Thank you good friend :) wish a very happy new year and happier Xmas good man. I am alright thanks for asking. And I'm now going to start packing things for shipping also I'm offering my car for sale in few weeks. It will not take long to get sold. I'm suffering my post resignation notice period with my current employer and days passing so slow. No job offers for me yet in Melbourne but I'm planning to fly there again permanently end of next month.

 

I'm happy to know that you have made it and things are good with you :)

 

Keep in touch Mate.

Cheers.

I was wondering if someone from Nov/Dec have applied for ACT sponsorship. I send my docs off at the end of January and I dont know the current processing times, the webpage always says 60 working days. Thanks!
