Regarding ACS approval and visa processing time


I am just about to start the phase of DIAC processing.
The ACS approval came a while back. I am doing the processing through an agent.
Few questions.

1. I have over 5 years of IT experience as a Java, J2EE consultant.
The ACS approval said the following.
"Based on the provided certified documentation, it is of the opinion of the ACS, that the applicant has 12 months experience in Java."

Does this mean that they do not agree that I have 5 years of Java experience or is this a standard wording?

2. If I apply for DIAC now, how much time would it take overall? Approximately I mean.

3. Once the visa is approved, what happens after that? Do I have to travel immediately? I am currently working at Frankfurt. I am an Indian citizen.

Kind Regards,

If you have a look at eligibility for a skilled visa 175/176 you'll see that there's a mandatory requirement for recent experience - 12 months within past 24.

The ACS statement could be just for that reason but if you're unsure as to whether they have approved your qualifications, email them back.

Not really possible to give approximate times at moment - read our second sticky thread info and also the 'applying for this visa' section which has links re applying and also what happens after application.

A huge reason why applications can be rejected is that applicants have not complied with supplying relevant information and so it's in your own interest to read visa information thoroughly and use check list.
