Hi Found this forum through google and find some really goood info from here .I have applied for my visa last year in june 2008 .I received my Trim file reference num on June 20th 2008 .I have applied under this category Skilled - Regional Sponsored (VF 475) visa. But have not heard any info since then ?
It was filed through an agent and i guess it was paper filing ,i have given up all hope .Someone please give me an update ..
OMG! Sounds like your in trouble mate! You should be in contact with every agent/phone/info/email/get yourself grounded where you are. keep going luv!
Hey Karyn thanks for the reply ,I have applied under Sub class num VF 475 but has a cousin sponsoring me .
What do you think it would be a problem

Remember you are paying them a heck of a lot of money to sort it. Probably something stupid but your agent should be chasing it up. Tell them if you don't get some sort of explanation you will report them to their governing body...they should be bound under MIRAS (think thats the name)
Oh ours was paper lodged too
Good luck and keep us posted
BTW welcome to PIA
