It is quite routine. It showed referred for myself, my wife & 2nd & 3rd child and then showed Finalized within 2 days. However, for my 1st child it straightway showed Finalized.

 

Cheers & no worries please:biggrin:

Thanks to an email at 2.30am this morning.....I've got my 176 visa!!!!

 

:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

 

Getting used to the idea now, my first reaction was shock!

 

I'd just like to say thank you to all the really helpful people I have met on this website, I hope i have helped others as much as you have helped me.

 

Makes me realise now why a migration agent can cost a fortune with all the work involved, but its even more thrilling for me to know I got there and I did it!

 

Congrats elderberry and cath ... And elderberry well done for doing it on your own :) x x

Hello, I wondered if you guys could tell me when a CO gets assigned? Is it some random time during the period in which I am uploading documents, or is there some kind of trigger that goes off once I have uploaded a certain % of the documents required, or fullfilled a number of the document types? Thank you.

 

Regards,

P.

I dont think anyone would be able to tell as a Chef, unless there is a Chef on here. The bet you could do is look on the WA website where they will give you a rough idea on how ling it takes to get a visa. Alternatively, you can look at all the signatures here of people that have applied for a WA 176 and see what kind of times they have written, that should give you a better, more realistic idea, of timelines.

Aw Congrats Amanda and Arthur, enjoy the moment! Lots fo excitement to come for you both :)

 

Seems like there's a grant every day or so now on here, love seeing the post pop up and wondering if someone else has got their visa :)

 

We too are hoping before Christmas ... we were advised we might have to wait 40 days for the subject access form on the police check but Scottish Police called us yesterday to say it's on its way :) All we are waiting for now is the pin code to submit our tax return on line to show proof of self employment and then (fingers crossed), that's it and the wait begins :) x

Hi , I have got a positive skills assessment. I have just got my IELTS results ~ speaking 8.5, listening 8.5, reading 9, writing 9 Overall 9. I now need to put my Visa application in. We would like a 176 visa and note that this is priority 4. Does anyone know how long this will take?:goofy:

We're the same, about three weeks for a case officer, after that just upload your medicals and you're away. 6-8 weeks mate.

Hi all

You all sound a lot further down the line than we are, having just applied for skills assessment for my OH 24/10/11 as a carpenter, paperwork and signed application form posted 14/11/11. The suspense is eating at us, how long until you generally hear back people I look online everyday to see that the online application is status 'pending' and 'in progress'. Any idea how long generally before we receive receipt or confirmation or a test date??

Thank you for any replies :)

State sponsored is Cat 3, have Co is few weeks, our visa was granted 6 weeks after lodging 176SS. Family sponsored is cat 4 and you need occupation on SOL 1, think DIAC is allocation CO for applications in March/April just now.
