Hi Tuku -

If the Uni has an agreement, then you would likely be applying under the "Agreement Stream" which is different than the Direct Entry or Transitional.

To answer your other questions will require a careful examination of both your previous work experience and the specific employment contract of your nominated job at the Uni - not possible for a quick answer on a forum. If you'd like to engage us to explore this further, please advise - contact info in my profile - thanks!

Hi Guys,

Here is my timeline for 186 - Direct Entry Stream.

My previous visa was 485 and I hold Pakistani passport that comes in high risk countries and process is slightly slower.

Please note that I have done everything myself, no migration agent was involved.

Employer Timeline:

- 18th March 2013: Employer nomination applied for Graphic Pre-press by my employer

- 16th August 2013: Case officer asked for more documents from employer i.e. Training receipts and contract copy

- 12th September 2013: Documents provided on last day (boss was busy)

- 16rd September 2013: More documents requested from employer

- 17th September 2013: Documents sent to the case officer

- 20th September 2013: Nomination Approved!

Now (my) Employee Visa Timeline:

- 26th June 2013: 186 Visa applied without nomination

- 20th September 2013: After nomination approval document request. (Medical, Police Clearance from overseas and IELTS result)

- 30th September 2013: Medical taken at Melbourne

- 7th October 2013: IELTS and Police clearance posted

- 9th October 2013: Visa Granted!

I am very happy now!

I will try my best to help if someone needs me.

Best of luck everyone!

Thank you!

I would like to know if it is acceptable to DIAC when the 186 DES nomination i.e. for Research Associate mismatches with my 457 visa nomination i.e.. for Env. Engineer? Also do I get a skill exemption for the position of Research Associate, as its an academic position?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Tuku,
How did your application go? I am in a similar situation to you and was wondering how yours went?
