our time line is our signature too
All our documents on our check list changed from received to met on the 3rd July apart from our SA sponsorship. I think we would have got the visa on this date had our first CO sorted out the conformation back in april. Its the form 1100. Because we applied and got our SA sponsorship before the new changes, the email we received from SA all it said was that they would contact DIAC and we didn't have to do anything.

He has been so helpful and has even phoned the department at DIAC about our form already being there and spoke to the senior decision maker on our behalf but they said it still had not been put on the system but they were checking it daily. Not surprised that it takes so long to our visa's if it takes more than five working days for one document to be put on the system.
Oh well back to waiting again.

We are very early on and have just had our on-line skills assessment submitted to VetAssess by the agent and followed up with the paper copy. We hope to have an invitiation for Andrew to take the practical test in a months time, so I will be like many others and checking the mail each day waiting for the next bit of good news. Now we have to get all the other information in order so that we can apply for the visa asap after Andrew has passed the skills assessment (no pressure)!!!
Our details are in the signature. Have to say getting soooo fed up now. Was really hoping to relocate at beginning of Sept as didn't want my eldest son having to start Comp and then relocate to another school. As this is now only about 8 weeks away it's looking very unlikely. We are very fortunate as we sold our house in March and have a rental house, have asked the agent to email an enquiry through to DIAC for a confirmation of the status of our application. We have frontloaded the medicals and Police Checks in Feb/March so should go straight to Decision Maker but have heard nothing from DIAC since they acknowledged receipt of our application in November. I too, like Martin and Val, like a job as a Decision Maker when we finally get there..................
Roz and co
our timeline is below - hopefully not too long now
good luck to everyone else who is waiting:)
yes we are very stressed to say the least!!!! only 3 weeks today until we go and visa not here! the reason ours has been prosessed further after going to the dession maker was i hadnt changed my passport from my maiden name and they requested it to be changed into my married name!! this was done and sent back in march though!!!!!!
