Hi all

I have submitted them all by 14/06/12 within their given timeline. Just saw a status update online about my medicals received by them on 20/06/12. Now, Just waiting..waiting & waiting.... hope the miracle happens soon..

Let me know if any1 else with same situation...Thanks

 

 

Your CO Cannot make any decision till the time you come back to Australia.I hope you know about it.

I have mentioned the employer's mobile number as well. He din't get a call from the immi dept at all.

 

Most of the times they try land line numbers just to make sure that it's a genuine case..otherwise people can just give anyones mobile number and tell them what to say if immigration representative rings..it doesn't work like that.you need to have employers land line number fully operational.

khan,

Now then, they had changed their land line number recently and I am surprised to know that only after my case refusal by the TRA.

What I am thinking now is to provide a statutory declaration by the employer itself stating all the information required by the TRA.

Thanks for ur reply.

But as per what i have noticed in the email sent to me by case officer, she mentioned that she will advise me when i need to return back to australia. I believe they send us Pre-Grant notification for this which can allow onshore applicant who are currently offshore to make valid entry in australia by applying visitor visa.

I have also read through some blogs in which couple of people who were in the same situation and they have been granted pre-grant notification after their application been assesed.

 

I hope this is what she means or may be i will write to her to clarify further. Thanks.

I would pack my stuff and get my ass to OZ ASAP if I were you. Never heard about a pre-grant notification, only that once I leave Australia, I would need to get e.g. tourist visa to get back to OZ. I personally would make it to OZ ASAP if I were you.

I am also one of the FS gang, I have a request and suggestion, can someone make an excel spreadsheet just for FS Cat 5s, like the one there is of Cat 5, so that we can keep track of the progress once they get around to processing us. Can anyone help?

 

I am also Cat 5 FS 176 - June 2009. Does anyone have a list of FS Cat 5's that we could start with??

some of my friend on same situation but their all line status shows "met" in front of all document except AFP. but my status shows "received" infront of all document with old date.(14/7/2009)

 

why that difference or what does it mean.

They cannot check AFP report online,it's only for medical.they can only check medical online after 48 hours of your medical test.yiu have to wait for the AFP report and attatch it with your documents.

After getting DIAC mail, I have contacted with Northern Inland for Nomination issue and she told me to get back with email by end of this month. !!! Three more working days. Unsure though!

 

Are you with Albury Sponsorship? Did you get same mail? How do u handle it? If you share....

 

No mail from CO. No change on status.

The only check before the application is pre assessment,they make sure whether your application is valid or not..security check could be another one,security checks can take more then one year sometimes.

I also have Northern Inland sponsership, I called Immi after receiving the email. I told them that the form 1100 that you are asking for has been sent twice , firstly on 08/02/11 and now this year in may. he checked out the details and told me that the form 1100 which was sent on 08/02/11 was not uploaded on my application and will esclate the matter further for assesment . I thought that I will get the case officer to look into it, but nothing happened as yet. still waiting ..... waitinggg...n waitingg

I would have assumed DIAC would start allocating some FS Group 5 Onshore applications from Mid June onwards but don't any any movement what so ever.

 

Anyone out there from FS Category got CO allocated recently ??
