    Guest Martin and Val

    Could I start a new thread off regarding the time scale of things. Not everybody lists this in their signature so how about a brief simple entry on this thread that can be referred to by others. I'm certain most look at this on other posts wondering how things compare with their own situation.

    I'll start it off with:

     

    475 Visa application e-lodged: 19th Nov 2007

    Front loaded Police checks and Meds: Jan & Feb 2008

    Application with decision maker: 6th May 2008

    Cheers

    This is our timeline and to say we are fed up with waiting would be an under-statement.

     

    475 on-line 09/11/07

    PCC/Meds frontloaded

    Full Ack: 11/11/07

    Meds finalised: 08/01/08.

    CO 17/4/07.

    With Decision Maker 2/6/08.

    Changed to 'MET' 3/7/08.

     

    The only thing outstanding is confirmation of our SA sponsorship which they sent to DIAC fri 4/7. They have had this since monday and it hasn't even arrived in the right department yet. And we wonder why is takes so long!!!!!!!!!!!! Why our CO didn't ask for this back in april is a mystery.

     

    Sorry rant over. Its just so frustrating and I am sure you can all relate to that feeling.

     

     

    Good luck to everyone still waiting.

    All our documents on our check list changed from received to met on the 3rd July apart from our SA sponsorship. I think we would have got the visa on this date had our first CO sorted out the conformation back in april. Its the form 1100. Because we applied and got our SA sponsorship before the new changes, the email we received from SA all it said was that they would contact DIAC and we didn't have to do anything.

     

    Anyway I think they should be issuing quite a few 475 soon as when we phoned SA to make sure everything was ok they were so helpful. We spoke to the very person who had sent the form for us and he told me that there was 40 other peoples forms in the parcel too. He has been so helpful and has even phoned the department at DIAC about our form already being there and spoke to the senior decision maker on our behalf but they said it still had not been put on the system but they were checking it daily. Not surprised that it takes so long to our visa's if it takes more than five working days for one document to be put on the system.

     

    Oh well back to waiting again.

    Guest Sharron & Andrew

    Hi All,

     

    Good luck to you all whatever stage in the process you are at.

    We are very early on and have just had our on-line skills assessment submitted to VetAssess by the agent and followed up with the paper copy. We hope to have an invitiation for Andrew to take the practical test in a months time, so I will be like many others and checking the mail each day waiting for the next bit of good news. Now we have to get all the other information in order so that we can apply for the visa asap after Andrew has passed the skills assessment (no pressure)!!!

    Our details are in the signature. Have to say getting soooo fed up now. Was really hoping to relocate at beginning of Sept as didn't want my eldest son having to start Comp and then relocate to another school. As this is now only about 8 weeks away it's looking very unlikely. We are very fortunate as we sold our house in March and have a rental house, have asked the agent to email an enquiry through to DIAC for a confirmation of the status of our application. We have frontloaded the medicals and Police Checks in Feb/March so should go straight to Decision Maker but have heard nothing from DIAC since they acknowledged receipt of our application in November. I too, like Martin and Val, like a job as a Decision Maker when we finally get there..................

    yes we are very stressed to say the least!!!! only 3 weeks today until we go and visa not here! the reason ours has been prosessed further after going to the dession maker was i hadnt changed my passport from my maiden name and they requested it to be changed into my married name!! this was done and sent back in march though!!!!!!

    That's weird - we are also claiming SA sponsorship for a 475 and they sent our Form 1100 on the 4th July - we only applied for our visa at the end of June!! I faxed SA the TRN number etc. Didn't receive conformation, so I e-mailed them a week later and thats when they told me the date they sent the 1100 to DIAC
