Hi Captain -

Congrats! If I might ask, what occupation were you approved under and what was your point score? This could be very helpful to other folks here on the forum who are awaiting invitations and wonder how their points test score will do.

Best,

Mark Northam

I think it now comes down to who managed to get their state sponsorship approved before 5 August - those were the lucky ones. At least DIAC seems to be holding the door open a little, but if I were a candidate who wanted one of the few remaining positions, I'd book an IELTS test soon and hope they would allow a candidate to upgrade their point score even if the sponsorship application has already been lodged. Not sure if they will dot his, but IELTS is one way to get an extra 10 points (for 7 or above on all bands) or 20 points (for 8 or above on all bands) which, if DIAC is going to allocate the remaining places to the highest points test scores, could mean the difference between getting a 190 or 189 visa this year or not.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi,

I've lodged my visa application (189) in 12th January, and on 18th March my case officer adviced that my case has been passed for external security check.
I havent heard back from them yet. My questions:
- Should I be worry about this? And by any chance is there any estimated time for my final decision? Of note, my field and area of expertise had nothing with military or chemical things.
- I wanna go and visit my family. Do you think, should I wait till get my results? I mean does it influence my case if I apply for a bridgning visa B and go oversease for a trip?

Thanks

Hi -

External security checks can take many months - all you can do is wait. Should not influence your case if you apply for a Bridging Visa B to go overseas, but make sure you keep in touch with your case officer and always let him/her know how and where to reach you in case further documents or info is needed, or in case they are ready to grant.

Best,

Mark Northam

189 application

Hi
According to the DIAC's time frame your case should resolve by 11 January 2014. Usually bridging visa does not effect any visa outcome so you can go for it. You don't need to get too worried because at present, even on shore PR visa applications are taking nearly 11-12 months to be processed .
