Now the wait for med requests....even more nerve wrecking!
Cool! Good luck!

Not sure how long the usual wait for AOR is and if we'll get an email/letter or if you just have to keep checking ECAS for a status change.

Good luck with sending your app off - it's a relief!

Im new to this so am reading through as many posts as I can trying to take it all in. Can you please tell me what 120 pack is and ECAS and AOR

Sorry to mither

when you apply for FSW PR, you have 120 days from the initial application assessment to send in a full application to you local visa office. After this time your application is rejected without the pack.

....so a 120 day pack is the full application including work evidence, passport copies, birth certs, police check etc etc, as apposed to the initial one sent to Sydney which is just the forms filled out. They (allegedly) check the application to see if you initially qualify.

eCas is the online application status page. You get a reference number on AOR, which is used to login to the system.

AOR - Acknowledgment Of Receipt - a letter or statement to say the visa office is in receipt of you 120 pack.

As you can see, acronyms cut down on a LOT of typing :-)

before you apply for your 120 pack you are best to get your CRB and references and things like this already sorted as 120 day is not really a long time to apply and get your CRB back in time??

Since writing that, it appears people on the new 'post 26th July 2010' rules send in the full application to Sydney, who send it all on to the local visa office.....there is no 120 pack any more.
