One of my close friends subclass 176FS February 2008 got his grant around two week back.

 

This is great news again! So we have a dec 2007 and feb 2008 grant for 176FS? We had a few people from feb 2008 in our 176 list, no one has updated anything yet.. may be they're not active in the forum these days.. Although the DIBP shows no sign of movement, looks like your earlier statement that they are doing it slowly in the background seems true.. And seems like our wait is going to end soon man! Thanks for the info, and a little more detail if you can please! Cheers.

thanks Saras712.

 

I can see that yours already been granted, I'm also on 886 submitted August 2013 but no luck.

 

You mean Aug 2010 not Aug 2013?

I just got BVB last week as i need to go overseas for couple of months. They have given me permission to stay overseas for almost one year. So i would say , u can visit overseas as long as u have permission from DIBP :)

 

It used to be 3 month now I have seen many people with more than 3 months

I guess the waiting has been extended because christmas is coming soon. People are ready for their christmas holiday and stop processing, therefore, no movements for the processing. I would be surprised if there are.

I reiterate the same thing again that by the end of 2014 90% of the cases for Cat 5 would be finalized irrespective of the subclass onshore or offshore.

My sole motive is to help all the members giving them hope right from the very beginning irrespective of what other people said. It may take some time more but everything's happening in the back end. We should feel great that 176FS that was struck for so long has started. I will appreciate more members should post their details if they get a visa grant. It would help us to judge a realistic time frame. Rest I will post more when I get some more news. Take Care!

Cheers and just wait for Good news !!!

Hi ARS, would suggest that you call DIBP and ask them directly about your visa application status. Now they have started reverting with app timeline. You will get a tentative picture about your application.
