How long before we get a case officer?

    Recommended Posts

    Hi,

    we lodged online 175 application on 20th Dec '09. Got the automated email the next day. Just wondering how long is it usually til you hear anything else.

    We're wondering when our meds police checks will be asked for and trying to guage roughly when we can expect to be in Oz. Is it usually a few months until CO picks it up? Anyone know?? We were thinking we could be there in Adelaide around Sept /Oct time - does this sound realistic?? Hubby is a nurse, but no state sponsorship. Just doing it ourselves. Any thoughts appreciated.

     

    Cheers,

    Hazel.

    If you look at this link..

     

    SA State Sponsorship - Are you waiting - Page 96 - PomsInOz Forum

     

    You will see a thread about peoples timelines.

     

    The answer depends on lots of things so i dont think there is a definitive answer.

     

    My timeline is below.

     

    I wish you all the best and time really does flyby when look back.

    Hi,

    Thanks for all your replies, just to update - we got our case officer on 23rd feb. We'll be having our meds in april and then the wait will begin again.

    I'm guessing it will be a few months between meds and visa being granted though :err:

     

    Hazel.

    Shouldn't be a few months, ours was 1.5 monthsish and we had 1 medical referred, so don't worry it'll be with you before you know it. ;)
