...also seems to be the only offshore thread that seems to have very much in terms of updates also...
Almost 4 months in myself and no communication... considering how few canucks I have met here... It is hard to imagine there are that many applications going through the local AHC
However I am quite entertained seeing the turn around time here

My partner just submitted his application, so now we join the waiting game. It is a relief to have finished. I am hoping for a good turn around.

I had expected that there would have been a rush of applications before the end of June but are other people experiencing this kind of slow progress? It would seem that some applications are being processed quite quickly, thanks.


Good luck I hope you hear something soon. I am hoping myself for a quick turn around, like you when I read this thread I feel positive. However when my partner and I applied they did say expect a 11-16 month processing time.

Thanks and good luck on your partnerís application too. The 11 - 16 months notice only appeared in the last couple of weeks. It also states that applications are processed in the order that they are received but Iím not convinced that is actually the case.

Hi,
When we applied they said 11-13 months I think, but ended up getting a positive decision in three months. Don't know if it actually makes any difference, and it definately doesn't say so in any of the instructions or guidelines, but was thinking maybe where in Australia one is relocating to might play a part.

We are moving to Darwin, NT, and to my understanding there is a lack of skilled professionals and general population draught in Darwin. So maybe that is why they made such a quick decision in our case?...

We also submitted our application in June with police certificates and health check. We haven't heard anything either. Like you I had hoped I'd hear something after following this blog...As a Catalan living in Brexit UK and waiting for this visa I feel uncertainty to say the least!

Your intended location could well be a factor Jesinaus. I’m pretty sure that when I went for my PR in 2001/2002 that there were extra points given if you were locating to certain areas. Congrats on the approval!

On your Immi account look at the attach documents section for sponsor and applicant. If you go to attach documents for each requirement (ĎAttachí hyperlink) a drop down menu appears with examples of suitable documents, it will give you a good indication of what they are looking for.
