Are you in Australia? I would like to meet you in person if possible. And i wish you get your Visa well before time.

Thank you so much for your honest words man. I really appreciate it.

When I see someone loosing hope, I just try to show them the light at the end of the tunnel. In this way I encourage myself as well.

Yeah I lived in Australia for straight 13 years from 2009 to June 2022. For my previous visa reasons, I had to go offshore to apply for 186 DE, in the occupation Painting and decorating. I did work for my Employer for 4 years. So I know Australia quiet well. 13 years of my journey showed me two things in life, No.1 Patience and No 2 Never ever loose hope. Always stay positive cause in those 13 years I fell many times but I rose as many times as I fell, off course with the help an unseen power, GOD.

Yeah I would definitely meet ya in person in next winter, hopefully if you live in Melbourne though. I do have a WhatsApp though. Don't know if I share it here or not. But you can reach me through my email, we will share our contact numbers over there. I still use my Australian number. We can have a chat on WhatsApp if you are using it though.

My work mates, boss already missing me, lol. My boss wrote a letter to DHA to hurry my case up but still didn't hear from them.

Again thank you for your deepest honest reply.

Your brother,
Waqar (Pronounce like Wakka).

Finally , Got My grant
ICT Security Specialist
Visa and nomination application : 31st Dec 2021
Non accredited sponsor
Medicals : 6th Jan 2022.
Nomination and visa both approved on same day : 19th Jan 2023.

No CO contact , and no ask to have medical again.

I wish all of you get your grant.

I have been constantly following this group, and these chit chats gave me great source of encouragement.

By the way I got 190 pre invite as well on 10th Jan 23, however my PTE got expired, I even reapplied for PTE ,for 21st Jan , hoping that I will accept the preinvite by 24th Jan , within 14 days of preinvite acceptance window. I was actually overthinking.

The moment I started again preparing , I thought of refreshing my immi account, which is almost everytime logged in and Finalized status flashed.

Everyone has waited enough, and grant can be anytime now .

Visa is around the corner brother. Congratulations, that's a very good news. If you provide them the required updated documents ASAP, I'm pretty much sure, you will get your visa grant letter within 3 weeks or even less.

Peace G

Hi Guys, Need your suggestions. I live in Melbourne since 2017. I initially had a 457 visa. My employer applied for 186 TRT in 2020 April. The nomination got rejected and we went to AAT. So, I got bridging visa A to live in Australia till we get the result. Later, the Client (my workplace employer) offered me for 186 DE visa. So i had to travel overseas to lodge the 186 DE(offshore) visa in August 2022 (i cannot lodge while I'm in Australia because of previous visa rejection). Then i came back(still working for the old employer) and waiting for the both visa results. Yesterday i have received VIC 190 pre-invite. Now my confusion is should i wait for the 186 DE or should i also proceed to lodge the 190 visa. With my earlier experience, i want to have multiple PR options but not sure what to do. I believe many of you gone through these kind of situations. Thanks

Currently due to some circumstance (Currently unable to wait) we have to travel to overseas and currently we have Bridging visa A and its been nearly 11 months. When we apply for BVB visa and travel to overseas , If we get the grant after going to the overseas. Will the 186 visa override the BVB.

Also will apply BVB visa has any adverse effect on processing of the 186 visa.

Will be really helpful if some one answer this.Thanks

Once you get the 186 visa grant letter, then you are permanent resident of Australia.

As far as for BVB effect on !86 visa processing, I don't think it will have a negative effect on 186 visa application or its processing time. That's my sincere guess, you can always do your own research.
Thanks
