Morning all,

I have been fortunate enough to qualify for a 176 visa, and on the 4th February 2010 I submitted all the docs for the DIAC process.

Then came the announcement of all the changes.

Has anyone any idea of the timeline involved now in the processing of the DIAC application for a 176 visa.

Depends Julia on whether your occupation is on the Critical Skills List.
If you have a look in the Visas & Immigration section, a sticky thread up near top has the link with recent and past changes and CSL you'll find on the link re 23/9 FAQ.
If you're on CSL, and I take it you already have your state sponsorship, you could get a CO in say 6-12 months.
If you're not on the CSL, it could be a few years, an indefinite number because of priorities and numbers capping, thus you may want to see if your occupation is going to be on a State Migration Plan, they possibly announced in a few months.

Hi,
My occupation is not on the CSL, but is on the State Skilled list and I have the state sponsorship, I had to submit my DIAC docs which was done just prior to the changes. So if I understand you correctly this may be a few years?

That could be about it.
Keep an eye out for when State Migration Plans are announced and that could get you a higher priority.

Hi I have lodged my application last 7 April 2011 for a visa subclass 176 and I think that I have given 2 incorrect answers. I hope this doesn't affect the processing time of my visa if I send them the notifications for incorrect answers. What do you think? I have not been assigned a case officer yet and I think it's better that I notify them about my incorrect answers. Anyway, for my question/s, there are questions in the application about "other names" applicants, dependents or family members have been known by/used before. Does this include the maiden name that my mom used when she was unmarried? Also in the form about personal particulars , it is already asking for my intended arrival in Australia and the flight details? Why would i book a flight if i dont have my visa yet? How should I answer these questions?

Is the medical the last stage of visa processing? I submitted my 176 application 7th of April 2011. Got an email last 16th of May from my case officer requesting my penal clearance certificate and medical exam to be submitted within 28 days upon receipt of the email. I hear people say that if you were asked of the medical it means that you're at the final stage and decision will be made soon. Or others say if you're requested of the medical that means you're most likely to be granted the visa. But then again, too many changes have been made with visa processing. Do you think the application is positive or it's just part of the change in processing that they asked for the medical right away after a case officer has been assigned to my application? By the way I have sent an online application. Thanks!
