Case Officer

    Hi,

     

    does anyone know if it is common practice for your case officer to contact your agent and not you directly? I have had no direct contact with my case officer but my agent says he has, and has given me his name and email address. I emailed him and have just got an automated relpy sofar. I am maybe being paranoid but we have waited four years for this and don't want anything to go wrong!!

     

    Thanks, Shelley.

    Hi, we never had contact from our case officer, just a forwarded email from agent asking us to go for medicals and sort olice checks.

     

    dont know if this is right though, but it didnt cause us problems.

     

    You had to wait long???

    Thanks Nic,

     

    that puts my mind at ease a wee bit. We originally submitted a 175 visa in 2008 but were put to the bottom of the pile as they no longer requied teachers. Then last year as began sponsoring teachers, we were going to Adelaide anyway, so switched to 176. Got our sponsorship a few weeks ago but Im pregnant so have to delay our medicals!! typical. Hope to be in Adelaide April 2013.

    Hi Shelley

     

    Same for me - everything has been through my agent and I have had no problems - my understanding is that when you use an agent, that's how it is supposed to be (at least I think so). I am just waiting for an overseas police check and then..... fingers crossed! I am hoping to be there Sept this year, can't wait. Good luck!

    Hi

     

    The only stuff we had was a letter saying who our case officer was. The rest was done via the agent and the case officers were not very good at updating their system. I had a minor problem on my medical and they did not update it on the system so I went into panic mode and kept bugging our agent. Just keeping chasing your agent and they will do the worrying (that's what you paid them for).

    Good luck

    Yes we never used an agent either and only heard from him twice via email. Once to request our medicals and the second email was to tell us that our visa had been granted.

    Dont worry.

     

    If you use an agent then the CO will contact them only.

     

    Best of luck :)
