Family Sponsored 176- Where are you now?

Recommended Posts

Calling all family sponsored 176ers there are not many of us, and we are a dying breed, also we wont be seeing any more after July 1st (as being sponsored by a family member gives you no points,)

 

There are a lot of other threads i.e SS ones cat 2, 3 and monthly lodged gangs,

 

But really need to see how everyone one is doing in their family sponsore app, we lodged the other day and have uploaded all docs, my sister is just finishing off stuff her end, Looking to move over to Perth (Freo) after the Olympics next year and I would like to think it should be tied up by then, hopfully,

 

Would be good to hear how you are all doing in your timelines. It would also be good to hear those who have recently got their visas and how long it took them.

 

Cheers JTC

Good Idea JTC to start this thread.

 

We lodged on March 9th 2011 and we are still waiting for our Visa although in a letter (email) received form DIAC we should be allocated a CO by June 18th.

The closer it gets to June 18th the more doubtful I get.

 

Living in hope

Hi Everyone, I'm on a provisional 475 visa also Family sponsored (regional Victoria) by my sister. Unfortunately I have had a very long wait so far. I applied in December 2008 and with all the Priority processing, have been continually put to the back of the queue. Hopefully, as I am now stuck in CAT 4, I might get a CO soon as DIAC promised some 10,000 applications from Cat 4 to be looked at in date order. Fingers, Toes and all Crossed! I really miss my sister, as she is also my only remaining close relative. Have been to visit her twice in Oz now. Unfortunately it is not cheap to go over there and you also always need at least 3 weeks (not very popular with employers!) Hey Ho, Good Job I'm a positive person! Good Luck to all!


Applied: 16.12.2008, Marketing Specialist, visa 475 FS, off-shore, IELTS: 8 (Academic) CO = Waiting, waiting and more waiting :SLEEP:

We applied in feb 2011 and also received the march 18th mail so have sent our medicals and police checks. On the Gsm processing email it says they are up to june 2010 applicants and they seem to do 2 months applicants every fortnight. Moving quite quickly now i think!!

 

There are other 176ers who are getting CO's that are sept 2010 applicants. I think it depends on which team of CO's u get. Team 2 are the furthest!

 

Hope this helps :)

Hi all! My hubby has applied for family sponsor 176 on 17/8/10. We got a CO on 6/6/11. All meds, police checks, ielts, skills assessment and family application forms inc all docs have been sent to diac. Just waiting for the final result. Yes or no? Ha ha it seems a lifetime since we started this journey (without an agent I might add), but we are hoping for a positive result very very soon.

Good luck to everyone else involved. We hope to move to Perth as all my extended family is there. Oh and it's beautiful.

Hi

 

Joiners are few and far between, think your the first one I have come across on here! Where you heading? there are a lot more jobs east coast but were heading West, obviously there is less jobs, but that is where both our familys are, hopefully more jobs will crop up near the time!

 

Keep me posted with your progress! and good luck
