Yeah we're 176 too.

 

I wondered whether it's slowed a bit due to some the changes that have been brought in. Perth becoming regional etc, there must be a massive amount people who have moved categories.

 

We're not planning on going until next year, but be nice to actually have the visa so we can get a date in the diary!!

 

 

looks like more bad news for me "Perth becoming regional should impact?" :unsure:

 

i am WA SS 176

No I think it's a good thing ;)

 

I believe they are classing Perth as a Regional area so it will move people up a category. Someone will give a much better explanation than that!!

Hi guys, we're a bit behind you lot. Skills Assessment with Australian Institute of Management as of 6th October, IELTS done on 7th/8th October. I do have a general question though.... some of the people listed in your thread seem to have gone from Visa application to Granted in only a few weeks !!!!!!! Is this unusual or are DIAC processing things much quicker?? I am going for Vic SS as an Engineering Manager which is in high demand, do you think I am likely to go through so quickly??

It would be good but it's also a scary thought that it could happen so quick.

Hi Nikkid,

 

Yes we are all hearing that 176s are moving pretty quick at the moment! Which like you say is exciting but also quite scary at how fast it all comes about!

 

We're SS Vic too, decided on an area yet?

Hi All

 

I applied for PR subclass 886 on September 2009 as a hairdresser, and like many other applicant, my case moved to Cat 3 recently after WA SMP changes.

 

My agent informed me last week that my case is allocated with a CO but when I check my application online, it doesn't show anything .

 

Is there anyone with the same situation here ? I'm just trying to find a timeline for my case as I'm from HR country and my security checks might take up to 12 months or more. The only advantage for is, I have been in Australia since 2006 and i left my home country before the age of 18 ( as my agent told me )

 

Any comment regarding my situation is appreciated in advance.

Hi Big Bob,

 

Not long for you to go now. Apprehensive or can't wait? Things are moving rather quickly on my end submitted Form 80 on 29 Sep and had our medicals yesterday (11 Oct). Hopefully not too long before we follow you to ACT.

 

Want to wish you all the best with the move n stuff.

Hi dalejane, sorry for delay in replying, computer at work wouldn't play so had to wait until I got back home.

We are most likely heading to Melbourne as OH job prospects seem to be CBD centred, we will be looking at suburbs within 30-45 minute commute.

Done lots of research into different areas but until OH lands a job we won't know which direction to go in.

Good luck with visa processing....speedy, speedy seems to be the way at the moment. :-)

Hi Nikkid,

 

Have no idea where we'll end up, location is probably least thing we've researched so far! We chose Vic as we have family in Cranbourne. I guess it will be job driven in the end.

 

It's all go at the minute, trying to get the house finished so we can get it on the market ASAP, visa stuff.......going to work for a break!! :)
