Hiya

I would however my vetasses dates and trade are very specific and I know for a fact that they (DIAC) could easily pinpoint who I am. My meaning of this is that I know (various sources) that they monitor all these sites. There has been many questions That I have posted which could in some way shape of form jeopardise my visa app, though they may seem unimportant and trivial to the normal user, may make a nosey DIAC agent start poking around into my file,:wideeyed: not that I have some sort of dodgy hidden history, just don’t want to ruin our chance to get to Oz, for an off the cuff comment or question, hence my sketchy signature dates.!!!

 

However I don’t mind telling you that I applied only a couple of days before you, talk about cutting it fine!!! were hoping to go over to Perth after the Olympics next summer, should we get our visa of course!

Hi All,

 

I wanted to ask that My sponsor filled the online application form on 23 of July. I still haven't got any confirmation email from DIAC for this?

 

I did got an email from DIAC on 23 July with all the same email body as of the email sent by them as an acknowledgement of Visa application lodgement, the only difference was there was TRIM FILE REFERENCE#. In previous email it was blank.

 

But as per forums it has nothing to do with sponsorship application and its DIAC internal reference number? But I dont agree as so much co incidence. has anybody share the same experience?

 

Can you pl let me know that how much time DIAC takes to confirm the receipt of online sponsorship form?

Hi all,

 

We are family sponsored, applied June 2009, online. Just wondering where I can find the online form my brother (sponsor) need to fill in? Apologies if this had already been addressed, I had no luck finding the information.

 

Thanks,

Also, when I just checked the document checklist on my online status, there is nowhere where it says family sponsor form? Only family tree diagram, which I've done.

Here is the extract from DIAC website

 

 

 

Changes to state nominated and family sponsored GSM visas – 1 July 2010

 

From 1 July 2010, applicants for certain GSM applications will be required to demonstrate that they have been nominated by a state or territory government agency or sponsored by an eligible relative apply. These amendments relate to the following visa subclasses:

 

Skilled – Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176)

Skilled – Sponsored (Residence) Visa (Subclass 886)

Skilled – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) Visa (Subclass 475)

Skilled – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) visa (subclass 487)

Departmental forms and systems currently do not facilitate proof of nomination or sponsorship at time of lodgement. However, system changes are currently being pursued.

 

In the meantime, to lodge a valid application, applicants should lodge their visa application form once the relevant state or territory government agency or sponsoring relative have agreed to sponsor them. The nominating state or territory government agency or sponsoring eligible relative should then complete the associated nomination or sponsorship form using the TRN number provided to the visa applicant when lodging the visa application. The nominating state or territory government agency or sponsoring relative should lodge the form within 28 days to demonstrate that the applicant is nominated or sponsored.

Hi

I am a bit confused gary and Helen, your signature says you applied for a family sponsored visa way back in 2009, surely you must have sent the sponsors paperwork when you made the application, as you only have 28 days after to send this document.

Hi Helen

this is very strange, We are 176 family sponsored and our checklist definetly has "evidence of relationship to sponsor"...Do you have an agent??

did you mean Oct 2010??, what is your occupation? It looks like a bit of movement on the family sponsored visas at last.
