I know you don’t have to wait for the nomination but as mentioned earlier, the sponsor hasn’t been great with their paperwork since the visa change so we’re waiting for confirmation they’ve done their but correctly. If the processing times weren’t so short I wouldn’t be waiting though.

Thanks
No problem! We used a third party (EY) for it. We think they got submitted for my partner the second/third week of April and for me the very end of April. So about 3/4 weeks (Those are the timelines when we were engaged to start the paperwork for the actual applications).

(no RFI)

Me:
Visa Submitted: May 25th
Nomination Approved: May 29th
RFI Received (Health Check): May 30th
RFI Completed: June 8th
Visa Approved: June 14th.

Both with accredited sponsors. Good luck to everyone!

Hi Sandra! May I just ask the following please:

- Your partner applied for the 482 Subsequent Entrant visa, right?
- If yes, why is that he has a Nomination Approved date? Is it needed for your partner even if you are the primary?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Pip - I believe Sandra and partner applied separately both for their own 482 primary visa.

As nomination only applies for primary applicant.

Is it mandatory to submit scanned certified copies or is it possible to submit scanned original documents along with accompanying translation? Thank you!

Do you mean specifically for translated documents only? Check a little earlier in this thread, I pasted the link from DHA with info about certified copies and translation of documents.

Another non-update and recap of my application:

4 May - nomination approved
10 May - application lodged (included medical checks and 4/6 police checks, all that were possible to complete before lodgement)
24 May - RFI (paperwork for additional two police checks included; also asked for a police check and medical that had already been submitted)
24 May - police checks requested (Hong Kong)
28 May - start date listed on contract comes and goes, luckily my employer are fine with waiting
29 May - uploaded receipts showing all police checks and medicals were done, along with a cover letter explaining details
11 June - police checks finished
12 June - police checks picked up and overnighted to Sydney (Hong Kong will only ship to requesting authority)
18 June - called DHA to confirm if documents were received, told to try calling again in 10 business days if there is no update between now and then

Accredited sponsor, non-regional position

So now we wait, and wait, and keep waiting. I'm super frustrated by the Hong Kong police check as it totally derailed our application. I saw someone further upthread that had a similar timeline and already had their visa approved. I can't help but think that we would also be in that spot if the Hong Kong process wasn't so specific and oddly timed.


In case anyone else is in our spot - we called the Australian visa office in HK a long time ago and asked some questions about the police clearance. They forwarded our question to the consulate, who said we just had to wait for the letter to arrive after lodging. However, now in the auto-response from the TSS email address, it gives instructions for how to request the letter before lodgement. I wish I had done more digging, but oh well.

I did see it, and thank you, but i also read that someone said he or she uploaded scans of the original documents along with the translated ones, so i was wondering if it's a mistake? Our documents (diplomas, certificates both professional and marriage, birth cert. etc) are all in Serbian language, so we got it translated, then scanned the originals and scanned the translated, certified copies. We have not applied for our visa yet, so should we make copies of our original docs and then certify it, and THEN translate it?

Hmmm, I would call the Global Hotline to clarify. From my reading of the DHA page (https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/...trav/visa/info), the originals should be certified as well but I'm not 100% sure. I submitted one translated document. The document was translated in 2012 but I certified the original with all my other documents this year. I did not have it re-translated after the certification.


I'm no expert, just trying to navigate this process myself, but my suggestion would be to call. If they can't give you a clear answer, I would go ahead and certify the originals, but I wouldn't re-translate them after certification. I would just use the translations you already have, along with the certified originals. But perhaps someone else on here knows better than I do.

But don't they need the stamp to be translated too? When you certify the document, for example at the public notary's office, my opinion is that the public notary's stamp should be translated too. So if i make copies of the originals, then certify the copies, i'm thinking i should attach new translations which feature the new stamp. Or am i wrong? Thank you for the opinion, I'm trying to gather as much info as I can at this point.
