New Category 5's - Where are you now?

Recommended Posts

DIPB have put G5 886 on indefinite hold and they hope all G5 applicants will abandon all applications together.

 

Exactly right! :(

Both 886 and 176 have been on hold, officially, for years. this is no news.

even when they start processing some 886, they will not say it officially for sometime, I don't think they will change any status on the website before July, even if they will process the remaining 496 or some in 866, other cat 5s.

So just sit tight till July, and if we get to hear of someone getting a CO before that, then it is a bonus.

What's frustrating is that we have options to emigrate elsewhere but we are holding on while we wait to hear about our Aussie visa application, since this is our first choice. I think that's what's most annoying, we can't make alternative decisions, because we live in hope that we will eventually get the visa.

And we plan to sit tight until DIAC processes our VALID application.

The man won the case because he has a good lawyer, but no one in G5 applicants have taken a legal action against immigration department, that's why they put G5 in infinite hold.

Guys need bit help. I am waiting for my 886 application from 2009. Currently in BVA like most of you. Can I apply for state sponsorship on BVA? I got mixed response about this. Iam getting opportunity to apply 489 state sponsorship but not sure if this BVA allows me to do so. Thanks

Are you in Category 5? If you are and have never received any information from DIBP or your agent, if you have one, it is always good to find out what your status is. Have you checked your status online at immiAccount?

OMG, i didn't realise there were some still 175s. hope you all get your grants before July, can you please let us know how many of you are there in your email group and do share the updates here too so that the rest of the forum members can also know. after waiting so many years, finding out about the progress of anyone in Cat 5, no matter which visa, gives hope to everyone, and i particularly feel happy that the queue is at least moving somehow. Good luck to us all.
