Hello,

 

My employer has just been asked to validate a reference, no problems there as it was frank and honest, but I was wondering if anyone knew if they did that for all the references sent, or just choose the last/current employer you work/ed for?

P.

They did get in touch with my accountant and asked him to answer a few questions in a written declaration, I asked the 4 clients that provided references and not one if them was contacted :)

I finally got my visa granted today, Monday 16th Jan. I'm really surprised how fast they moved at the end. I was only uploading the last of my pay slips and bank statements in the early hours of Sunday morning. My intention was to have it on their desks by Monday morning, but I never expected them to get busy on it right away...

 

I applied on October 8th, a while back now and most of you seem to have had your visas for quite some time. To be honest, just before Christmas, I was starting to panic: I thought that accepting an offlist offer for Tassie SS had put me in a category 5 and not a 3. It seems I was worrying about nothing, but perhaps being an offlister slowed things down a bit. Who knows?

 

Anyway, I'm well pleased right now. Good luck to all of those still waiting - I'm sure it will come good for you in the end.........:jiggy:


Skills Assessment : July 2011; IELTS: November 22nd 2009; TAS Sponsorship: August 29th 2011; 176 Visa Applied October 8th 2011; C/O: December 19th 2011; P. Checks received January 4th 2012; Meds January 6th 2012; 176 granted: January 16th 2012 .....
