Nice one Gaz!
It's been said before...but it does suddenly feel very serious now!
I believe its almost a year to date since i submitted my sysadmin ACS app.......finally it seems like i'm getting somewhere!
Zeb & Joseph, how far down the visa process are you guys now? is it fairly straightforward?
DDD, are you waiting for your docs to arrive at the ACS?
Gaz - the SS is key and, for us, the Visa process is zooming by - we've had our case officer assigned, police checks are off and our medicals are booked for 14th Feb. I suspect we will have the Visa around end March, maybe slightly sooner. Our agent said SS means the Visa process takes (usually) about 2 months. There is a lot of stuff to scan in, P60s, P45s, passports, latest reference, certificates, etc, etc - but the initital form isn't too bad and feels awesome putting everything you've done so far down.
I found out that the validation year kinda kicks off from when the police checks or medical is taken, so the clock starts ticking quite soon. Good luck!
Just need DDD to get on board now! (and wonder if Mark has had any further thoughts - I keep hoping he secretly did the Network Admin review and is going to pop up and go "GOTCHA!")
Wow Zeb, things seem to be moving along quickly for you too.
Has your case officer only asked for police checks and meds, and have your others gone to met yet.
We've just had our medicals finalised and uploaded police checks, so are just waiting for the final ok. Trouble is I can't stop keep checking the site for status, at least twice a day.
Also hope Mark reconsidered and is secretly filing his 176.
Gaz the ACS and SS were much worse than filing the 176, as you have pretty much all they need already from the ACS and SS, apart from the cost that is!!!
Great news Paul! We have the 80 form we are just finishing off as well but it's just the medicals and police checks at the moment, is there much else after that?
Yes, the cost - quite painful really, but nothing else you can do but pay! (and not think about all the cool stuff you could have bought instead)
Hope there isn't anything else. Haven't been asked to fill in 80 form, don't know what that is.
I try not to think of the iphone 4s, or the ipad, or the sonos. This migrating is expensive
It sure is. I could cry.
The form 80 I've been filling in (at agent's request) is the "personal particulars for character assessment". I think it needs signing and sending off.
hey,ya just waiting on ACS now who knows really, i asked my CO but she couldnt really say either. i see database admin has been on medium for quite a while now so hoping network admin will be the same :-) Fair play to the rest of ye, i guess once you have SS the rest is easy(as in no more lists to be checking on etc). How long did it take sys admin to go from medium to low? Its the only thing i have left to compare
Getting the SS does appear to be the tricky part - I think you have a good chance, network admin is holding a billion times better than sys admin did - that went down within days (or so I recall).
