    Hi everyone, I'm sharing my joy with you all that I got my golden email yesterday. This was happened just 1 business day after I made a complain call to the department. I am already outside the time frame at the time I called them. I complaint that to my knowledge application way behind me got finalized what is going wrong. I query application is not being processed by the time put in. I also complaint that there should be a time frame for CO when they received our updated document just like us only having 28 day to provide document when we were being asked for. My timeline is: Application submitted: 16 Feb 2018 I updated AFP since the old ones expired 1st Co contacted: 8th April 2019 (requesting AFP with alias name) 1st CO: Sophorn updated AFP with alias name 29 April I made complaint call at 26 July 2019 Granted: 29 July 2019 by CO Peter The email was came in 30th I wish good luck to every applicant in this forum

    I wish I was here more often, but I found I have so much life to catch up on after I received my PR, - my life has been on hold for such long time! I keep my fingers crossed for every one of you guys, so you can get your PR and catch up on your lives - properly.

    Hi all, I just made a quick chart. Beside all the rather depressing comments on not processing any applications,.. yes there are hardly no grants this month. You are correct. And yes, seems that they work towards their quotum EOFY - always bigger numbers in March and June. But there is also progress. If you kinda block it per 6 months, they always increase their number of grants every month. After 6 months of increasing there is a basic stop and they start all over again. Next month, and the month after will be better than this month. Keep up the good positive spirit everyone. Do not lose hope!

    I agree with you @Seacity112. Please do not get me wrong. I'm just trying to find patterns and keep up the good spirit. Know that I'm frustrated also about all this.

    Hi, 489 is a ultra shit visa. 189 the best or at least 190. Both are permanent residence visas. Adelaide best to live if you have good job. State sponsorship is a bloody joke. They just dump people here and you have to look after yourself. Jobs are hard even odd jobs. No need to do IELTS again for 887 , If your spouse did the higher studies in English medium. Schools free for 489 but some schools you have to pay around $500 per year. Monthly expenses would be around $ 3000 for month. Its for just food and rental for 4 family. Do better research before come or come your self first and study the situation at least one month.

    Best to go for the independent visa (189/190) if you have enough points, as 489 is a pain in the butt. Sorry. Only go for 489 if you do not have enough points. You will not have Medicare on 489 (unless your country of origin has reciprocal agreement with Australia, like UK), so will need visitors' private health. Most people go with BUPA, for full comprehensive insurance (extras + hospital) you may be looking at paying about $200 a fortnight for 4 people. Please research this online, I cannot give exact figures. I pay $120 a fortnight for me and my son. this covers all extras and hospital with $500 excess. You can get a job here, but please be prepared that it may not be in your field. Adelaide is a funny place like that. You have to be very lucky to get straight into your profession on arrival. Many people of good professions like doctors and engineers here work as UBER drivers, which is a bit sad, but it gets them a PR in the end! No requirement for IELTS for main applicant for 887, but there is for a secondary applicant. Or you can use a university degree as a proof of English. Adelaide is very livable in terms of rent and living expenses. There are some cheaper suburbs north and south, more expensive in the hills and near the ocean , you just have to look for there you want to be. You can rent a house or unit for your family for $300/week, if you want to start small. Plus other expenses: food, cars, energy bills, phones, internet. As an example, all my bills with rent average at $450-500 per week plus car fuel, food and mobile phone. Yes, you can invite parents on 489.

    This is the busy time for student visa. I think all CO's will be back mid of next month. This is reason of slow processing.You will see the big month coming up after August .
