Hi guys I made a study on the data in our spreadsheet. I felt to share this with you guys. Just ignore if this is stupid. this study made on data from 887 visa tracking spreadsheet from 11/2017 to 06/2018

 

Total number of applications made, from 11/2017 to 06/2018 is = 381

Total number of applications, a CO been assigned , from 11/2017 to 06/2018 is = 329

Earliest date, which a CO been assigned for a application made in 11/2017 is 09/04/2018

Latest date of CO contact for an application made in 06/2018 is 18/06/2019 ( application date 19/06/2018)

Number of days between 09/04/2018 to 18/06/2019 is = 427

Average time taken by CO per application = 427 divided by 329 is = 1.29 days ( that’s not too bad).

 

So, if immigration keeps this speed up, an application made on march 2019 will be taken,

 

Total number of application made between 11/17 to 06/18 is = 381

Total. Number of applications CO contacted between 11/17 to 06/18 is = 329

Applications yet to be contacted by CO between 11/17 to 06/18 is = 381-329 = 52

Total number of applications been made between 07/2018 to 03/2019 is = 108

Total number of application pending till 03/2019 is = 108+52 = 160

Total time need to take 160 appliactions is = 160 * 1.29 days = 206.4 days , that is 7 months nearly.

I don’t think you need it for 2 month. My kid is 2 years old which looks different to the passport.

Pre-grant is just an email from the CO, informing that your case has been finalised. 🙂  Means, your visa is ready to be granted but not all applicants are in Australia. So CO is saying: "Here is your grant, waiting for you, get all applicants to Australia and receive your grant!" 🙂  We just call it "pre-grant" because it is not official yet.

Hey, if you have your existing insurance documents from your home country available than Bupa can waive off the waiting period. I have done it. Cheers 

Hi all who helped and took out time to your help... 

I would appreciate any more suggestions and responses. 

 

If I plan to to my home country for delivery, how long I will have to stay there. How long it will take to get the newborn added with in our visa (489 and come back here?

 

If I go for Bupa insurance with 1 year waiting period, after waiting period, will everything free/included (like, routine checkup, x-rays, ultrasound) or there are hidden costs ? Incase any one had similar experience please share your thoughts. Thank you.

Hi Mate, Congratulation on your visa grant. My story is pretty much like yours, Can you please give me little bit more information about Photo declaration and GP certificate. My Daughter is 2 years old but I haven't submitted anything like this. It will be very helpful if you can help me out with that.

Thanks a Lot and enjoy your big moment.

Hi,

Bupa doesn't cover every thing. After waiting period finish, they will cover 70 to 80% (Bupa panel doctors) and 50 to 60% (any private doctor). Normally you have to pay and then claim it from Bupa. Other costs like Xrays also have some money from your pocket, however, Blood tests are covered fully. 

Regards,

Hey everyone asking me for medical forms. It’s been a while already. Sorry, I don’t have them at the moment, I just searched on immi and that’s the only one that I could found about medical check. For photo declare please go searching the tracking sheet attachment. Anyone can share the tracking sheet? I haven’t seen them for awhile but definitely recorded in this forum.
