How long does it all take?
We are just starting (FINALLY) our TRA, and i was trying to work out a rough time frame for the SIR if we stayed on top of things and and got every thing done in a reasonable amount of time that is.
Any one know how long they're taking at the moment??
Do you think a year from now we'll be getting ready to go??
our time scale below, and we have been practically on top of things except the time between tra approval and sa sponsorship, (had death in the family so priority changed for a few weeks) but apart from that we have, but we did have christmas in between so this could slow it down a bit.
our agent said approx 7 months from date they stated on the acknowledgment of receipt in Adelaide which in our case was 24-04-07. also when we went for the original meeting at our agent in October 2006 they said it takes approx 12 months ib total.
still waiting patiently, our visa application was posted by our agent and i have been told submitting it on line will speed this up but who knows.
We are here on an SIR495 and here is our timescale going backwards from getting here :o -
Arrive in Adelaide
Final Stage - Got Visa in Passport
Third CO assigned
Form 80 & additional info sent to CO
New Case Officer Allocated

Less than a year start to finish ;)
under 12 months i hope ours is so quick.
just a query, i have'nt come across a form 80 yet. what is this?
A form 80 is a character assessment form - not everyone has to fill them in, obviously they must have thought we looked dodgy from those passport pics ;)
Cool! My estimations are realistic then cheers.:)
