Recommended Posts

Guest Doc Googles

Hi there. I'm starting this thread to get a list of the 176 Applicants who are sponsored by an eligible relative. That way we can get an idea of where DIAC are up to with this cohort.

 

My details

457 Issued Apr 2009

176 Application Lodged June 16 2011 (onshore)

Police Check Lodged Jun 20 2011

Medicals booked: July 28 2011

 

Awaiting CO

We should have been state sponsored but ended up having to go the Family sponsored 176 root. Therefore we are category 4 (18 months). We lodged on the 30-06-2011. We are hopefull things can happen alot sooner. The current rate of progress for cat 4's is about 2 months worth for every month, but this could change and is dependent upon the volume of applications for cat 1,2 & 3
