Just an update from me:

I received a request for more information (new police check, evidence of Medicare) on Friday 15th April. Application submitted in June 2017. After receiving a call from the department and asking a few questions, it seems that the process from here is quick and straightforward.

For those of you saying you have recently applied or are around the year mark, buckle yourselves in for a long wait! Remember you can easily get a Bridging Visa B for overseas travel (I have done this 3 times) and you can write to the department for permission to work. Best of luck to you all.

Great news, congrats on the progress! Just a couple of questions for you if you wouldn't mind answering?

What date in June did you apply?
Did you use a migration agent/lawyer?
Can't believe they asked for a new police check - so cheeky considering we have to get one to apply, then you need another one because they're taking so long! Was it checks for all the countries or just oz?

Hi Lauren,

Always happy to answer any questions

My application was received on 19th June 2017, which is around the same time that you applied I believe? Hopefully you will be contacted soon.

I did not use an agent or a lawyer, did everything myself.

I actually forgot to send my Australian police check when I first applied, which is why I needed a new one. But the check from the UK which I originally submitted was perfectly fine.

Feel free to ask anything else

Thanks for the update Ryan,
so great to hear there's movement!
I applied July 2017 so this is the first positive thing I've heard in a while.
I'd echo what Lauren said... Cheek to ask for new police checks..But still better than more waiting. Was it for each country again?(I had four different police checks)
+1 for the bridging visa B - I've had multiple also and it's been rapid processing each time with no questions

Hi guys.
I am currently on student visa but like to lodge visa 461 within this week. Is anyone here on student visa before too when they lodge the application onshore?

Thanks again for getting back to me on my Q.
Seems a lot of people applying onshore are waiting very long. I applied offshore in NZ around May 2018 and the visa was granted in Nov 2018. I think the onshore queue is very VERY long
