Hi All,
I am a new member of this forum. I am Karthick Ramachandran and i am from India having 6.5 years in IT. I was searching for few details on Australian immigration and came across this excellent site. I was told by my friend that i am eligible for Australian immigration under subclass 189. Since i am newbie to Australian immigration process, i would like to get the details on the below.

1. Timeline for 189 sub class?
2. Is it possible for me to process the Visa on my self or do i need to take the help of consultancies(my friend suggests so). If i can process it on my own what are the things i have to take care of?
3. Will there be any changes in immigration rules & regulations coming in the next year? (starting from July 1 2013?)
4. In the immigration site, it was mentioned as below: (under skill select occupation ceilings)
The below occupations have not yet reached their ceiling levels, however, 75% or more of the invitation ceiling levels for these occupations have been reached. Intending migrants who have selected any of these as their nominated occupation should submit their EOI to have a chance of being invited before their occupation reaches its ceiling- for Software and Applications Programmers (3898 of 5160). Does that mean if i apply for the VISA under that category my chances of getting the VISA is slim?
5. What are the cases in which a VISA will be rejected?

Thanks in advance for your help. I am navigating this thread for additional details. thanks once again.

Timelines vary from case to case.
I got the 189 grant today, and it took less than 6 months.
I have read other posts where people have got the bisas in around 4 months time as well

Although you can apply yourself, but some people do prefer to take help from immigration consultants. In case you decide to hire a consultant, make sure that he is registered with MARA.

Thanks for your reply noddy. But i have a quick doubt. Reg my question 4 as i can see that the quota for Software and Applications Programmers category is on the verge of getting filled, what will happen if i apply for the visa now and it gets filled? Do i need to file a new one or will it be accepted in any other category? Also can you tell me what is MARA?

Hi Everyone,

My Name is priyanka sharma. My husband is also applying for 189 subclass. We have few doubts.

1. Before Marriage, My Name was Priyanka Bharti. Now it is priyanka Sharma ( we have got it endorsed only on marriage certificate). whereas all my documents say Bharti only. should we mention this in the EOI for the question of "name change" ? or that is not required. If we have to mention that, then is marriage certificate a good enough of proof for name change...or is there any other document also that we need to produce to support the name change thing.

2. We have recently moved to Mumbai from Noida [ just 4-5 months back]. and staying on a rented apartment here. in the address column, do we need to fill this temporary address ? is it linked to Police clearacne certificate (PCC) in anyway ? or should we furnish the permanent address of Noida only ?? basically is it mandatory that you furnish the current address only even if it is not permanent ??

3. About PCC -- as we have recently moved to Mumbai, should we apply for PCC in mumbai only or we can also apply for the same in noida itself ? will police consider this short duration for providing PCC or is there any other process that we need to follow?

4. Spouse names are not endorsed on our passports. Is that a mandatory thing for PCC or is that required anywhere in this whole process? we have marriage certificate as a proof of relation.

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks
Priyanka
