please anybody let me know the expected date of assignment of CO, as the DIAC website shows 175 visa applications launched on or around 23rd decemeber are about to be assigned for CO.

also, any recent successful candidate under this subject with similar conditions as mine can explain me how long it can take before i get the 175 visa.

please also let me know if me and my family will immediately be eligible for medicare benfits on 175 visa as soon we arrive in ausi or it might take 2 years, as some suggest so. the reason for this question is that one of secondary applicant in my application requires to continue a medicine which is around 1000 AUS $ per month.

Hunny,

It takes around 7-8 months for the CO to get assigned for subclass-175 category. CO will ask you submit PCC and Meds and granting of visa is pretty quick once those docs are submitted (as close as 1 day to may be 2 weeks, needless to say only if all docs are proper). You can go through the timeline of all previous applicants from this forum and that will give you a fairly good idea.

Not sure of the medicare benefits in Aus, may be some senior member wil be able to help.

Just going through your posts. Have few queries:

My status is as follows:

Date of application: 18th March 2012 Online Agent: No
Nationality: Indian
Trade/profession: Mech Engr
Visa type: Skilled Sponsored (subclass 176)
CSL, MODL or SOL: SOL
Date CO assigned: 4/4/2012
Police check submitted: Yes, was asked by CO, on 21/4/2012
Medicals on 24/4/2012, submitted on 27/4/2012
Medicals submitted: Yes was requested by CO,

All other requirements were complete. As on 6/6/2012, health requirements for myself and two kids indicates finalized from 2/6/2012 but shows outstanding for my wife, though submitted together. When I asked the CO regarding this, I received a reply that they are still awaiting the results of her medicals from Global Health. I am not able to understand this as they were all submitted together.
In addition, the Character Certificate has already been submitted but still indicates requested on the checklist page?

What do these mean and when can I hope for some outcome? Any feedback wille welcome. Eagerly awaiting visa approval.......... Planning initial landing in August depending on visa....
An important update:

Dear All,

I had raised up my case here for the 176 medicals as only my wife's case was stuck up. Since I had nothing happening from 2/6 till 28/6, I had to make a complain on the Global Health Website feedback form. The same day I received a reply from a Ms. Sonia Taouk, working there with emails [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] as appended below:

Dear Mr XXXXXXX,

I am writing in response to your complaint made to the DIAC Global Feedback Unit on 28 June 2012, regarding the status of Mrs XXXXXXXXXX's medical assessment.

Global Health have now had an opportunity to investigate the case and we can confirm that a medical opinion was provided on 2 June 2012. Unfortunately, the opinion did not transfer into the system correctly, due to a minor system issue. The opinion has now been entered manually into the system.

Your Case Officer has been advised of the issue and can now confirm the outcome of the medical assessment.

Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

I was not able to get any help for my case on any of the fora I visited. Maybe this might help a few others, as each case is very unique. Will keep you all posted on progress.

dear CD107947

i have option of 175, 176 and 475, but i applied for 175 yesterday as my IELTS result was on 21st june 2012. i already had requested for 475 sponsorship letter before 21st june and received it as well on 22nd june but i didn't ask for sponsorship of 176 as i was not sure about IELTS result to give me 10 extra points.
now there was no time to ask sponsorship letter for 176 as it wasn't possible to get it before 1st july 2012, all this discussion was between me and my agent. My agent never guided me as he says its all my decision to go for which visa and what time.

i am assessed as telecommunication engineer by engineers australia and have my occupation in SOL of western australia as well.

with this background, my question is, i need to reach australia quickly and make sure upon arrival in australia im covered with medicare along my family on migrant visa. so, should i apply another application in state sponsorship (176 or new equivalent 190) and expect a quick arrival in australia as my occupation is required thesedays in western australia. ofcourse this means spending another 3k to 4k $.

Dear All

i have a few questions from 175 successful candidates:-
[*]1
[[/LIST]do we have difference between time before the CO is assigned for high risk and low risk countries?
[*]2[/LIST]as per expected time of CO assignment for 175 is around 6-8 months, so what can be the appropriate time before assigning CO i should be ready with PCC and MEDS so that i may not waste processing time.

[*]3[/LIST]for my wife as secondary applicant will CO ask for her degree/transcripts as definitely she is not going to assess her skills?

[*]4[/LIST]right now i qualify for 65 points (IELTS, experience,age,degree), if i want a second application to reach australia faster let us say on migrant state sponsorship of western australia 176 or 190 (new system), will the state sponsorship migrant visa be faster than 175?

regards

Dear Hunny,

To be quite honest with you, I do not know the exact details you are asking for as I did not research other visas. However, to let you have a good news, I got my visa grant letter early this morning! It was for a GSM 176 and the letter does state that the I am eligible, along with family to be coevered through Medicare for self and family from the time of arrival. One needs to go to the Medicare office with travel documents, passport and the visa letter. Further, it also states that I may be eligible for Social Security and Family Assistance towards rasining children, till I find a job. This is done by a Agency called Centerlink.

Hope this helps you. I did think that the 176 visa was in Priority Processing Group 3, hence it went through very fast.

Best of luck with your case.

I think the new SOL will apply along with new categories of visas. The 175/176 will now be replaced with new ones. See the Skills Select page on the IMMI website
