Ghweng if I am not wrong you applied 886. Can we apply another visa application while waiting for 886. My agent says I cant apply onshore any other visa.

Dear fellow 176 FS,

 

I will be withdrawing my 176 application as I hv received my grant for 190 today. It has been a long 6years 5months 5days of wait for us and I am glad that it has finally come to an end. I wish to thank all of my fellow friends here for the advice and replies to my queries. Please do not give up hope of coming to Australia, if one way doesn't work we just have to find another way. One day, we

 

might be able to meet up in OZ land. Keep the hope alive.

 

 

Hi Christine

I am a new member and came across your post which I feel encouraged to apply new application. May I know if you reapplied by yourself or thru agent?

Sorry if u had mentioned it before. I am Dec 2008 176 and no news either for so long. I am going thru an agent but they requested me to withdraw my 176 application and quoted me a shocking price for a new application.Appreciate your reply n time. Thanks.

Hi SSL,

 

First application was done by ourselves and second application lodged using an agent. It was around this time last year that I decided to look up an agent to see if there are any other possibilities instead of continuing waiting for 176. My agent didn't think it will get processsed in another 4-6years. He advised us to relodged a new application but not necessary to withdraw the old application yet. And of course, visa application fees have gone up considerably compared to 6 years ago. It was a huge gamble for me; I risk losing my new application fee if 176 did get processed. My grant letter for 190 has advised me to withdraw any pending visa application.

 

Everything has to be redone including IELTS, VETASSESS assessment, PCC n medicals. My occupation was dropped from the Skilled Occupation List years ago but luckily was on Queensland CSOL. Based on my agent's assesment, I stand a very good chance of getting my 190 and I have not looked back since.

 

Try to see if there are any possibilties available to relodge a new application. You will have to bear in mind that you will never get your application fee back if you withdraw your first application. Good luck mate!

I am using Australia Relocation Services. They service Malaysia and Singapore. A new visa application depends on what category of visa you are applying and how many dependents you are including in your application. A check using visa cost estimator will tell you how much its going to cost. My new visa application was AUD7040 as I have included my spouse and 2 children. Agent fees, VETASSESS, translations, IELTS×2, State sponsorship fee, PCC and medicals will cost another AUD5000 (estimated).

 

Hope this helps.

Hi everyone

 

I'm losing patience. I applied for 886 FS in February 2010. Can't believe it's been four years+ (almost 5!). Waiting for this PR has stopped me from taking a gap year just to travel.

 

Not even sure what to do now. Should we reapply for a new subclass?

 

My friend who applied around the same time with 885 already got his PR and citizenship. Seems like it's just us now.

 

Furthermore, family member keeps asking the status of my application like I don't follow it up. So frustrating.

 

*vent over*

 

Anymore 886ers in this thread?
