pls. check email everyone. Dont let your morale down by new bs timeframe.

These are golden words! 🙂 I think better to concentrate on the fact that things are clearly moving. It's just that we have such a huge backlog now, that it takes time to fix.

But my 489 expiring in dec 2019

Is this normal?

This is normal, you will notice that the Bridging visa only kicks in when your 489 expires, but they issue the bridging visa once you apply for the 887

They updated the 190 visa processing time from 11-14 months down to 9 - 13 months. Yet increasing our time ?

Nudgee, we have seen applicants been granted PR in less than a year, so once again I reiterate that if all the documents are complete and uploaded then the CO can issue a grant once they review the first time around. If documents are not correct then the CO may need to return to the application, and therefore may take 16 to 18 months. That's my take!!

what are the real benefits of PR?

  • if you have a decent job in regional area, why moving after PR?
  • Buying house?? with 489 can not we able to buy?
  • wait 2 years for centerlink benefits? how many yeas for citizenship? 
  • Travel in/out easily.

 

I am just wondering why they do not give PR so quick.

I am tired of waiting too.. I complained yesterday that i have even completed 18 months.. but got the usual reply..so upsetting..I don’t know why they are not giving us grant.. i have submitted all requested documents within 28 days and after requesting documents sophorn go for  3 months holidays... not fair...

I know it’s not fair, we are so upset with it all.

Strange that we have the same agent.. Maybe they are away 🤔
