    Hi there,

     

    Just wondered how many have applied for a skilled visa, and what sort of timeline it has taken for each stage? It looks like there is a massive backlog!!!

    Thanks again

    Hi Candia,

     

    We have applied for a 496 (temporary visa), you can see the timelines below, my OH job was put on the MODL list a week after we applied, so because of this we are still only being treated as low priority, even though they are looking for his trade.

     

    The waiting and not being active in the visa process is killing us, at least when we were gathering information and sorting paperwork out we felt as though we were a part of it. But the future being left in someone elses hands now is not a good place to be, as far as emotions are concerned, my liver is screaming from all the australian wine we have been forced to try as we wait & wait & wait.

     

    I'm so glad we have already done our meds, I dread to think how the tests would have showed up after all the alcohol! (I was tee-total before I started this process!)

    Everyone seems to be different, suggest you look at some of the time lines on most peoples signatures which will give you an idea. Enjoy the wait:skeptical:, your not alone thats the good thing:goofy:

    We are also on a skilled independant visa. However the new 175 (timeline below).

     

    Seems to be going quite nicely. We don't hope to go until at least Apr/May next year anyway. We aren't in any hurry but it would be nice to have it in the bag so to speak. Even at this stage its a maybe rather than a deffo. We don't want to sell the house until the visa is granted but then we don't want to be stuck here coz the house won't sell. :confused:

    Pete, thats the big one but the way we looked at it is that you can dalay the house to suit you a little and delay thing if needed, so if we ever get a viewing:nah: thats the plan.
