As my case is a little complicated, due to previous medical problems, I cannot anticipate a definite positive outcome, so cannot really put house up for sale until I know for sure.

I think you can contact the case officer, on my letter from DIAC, it gives out a tel no that the CO can be contacted on.

My Daughter is OK, although she is adamant that she will not be coming with me just yet, she is trying to find ways of finding rented accomodation as well as looking into all the grants and like, that she will be entitled to, as she is in higher education still.

Good luck with your application...... Karma is being sent.

Hi Nick
I would give the CO a call and ask for a time estimate from them. When we lodged our RSMS we were given a current processing time - did you?

Good luck
Sonya

Hi Nick.

If I understand correctly you are saying you need to get to Aus before the meds and police checks expire ?

In my experience that is not so.

The validity dates are only relevant to the visa application process. Doesn't matter when they expire after getting the visa grant.

Hi Sonya,
Sorry I should have mentioned, that on the acknowlegement letter, it also said "currently, the majority of visa applications are taking six months to complete on average".

Hi Bix,

I think, what I am trying to say, is that if and when this visa is granted, there will be a "first entry" date at which I have to enter Australia by, either to validate my visa or move over there. this "first entry" date is usually calculated from, the date you had your medical or police checks done, whichever was done first, and is usually twelve months on from that date.

With the RSMS Visa, once you have entered Australia, to validate, you must then start work within the following 6 months or your visa can be cancelled. This is unlike other visa's where you can go on Holiday to validate and not go back to live in Australia for up to the next 5years.

So its pretty pointless just validating a RSMS visa by way of a holiday because of the conditions imposed stating that you must start work within 6 months of arrival.

Hence the worry about not being told either way until maybe DEC and then having to be there by March, which will be 12 months on from my police checks.

Thanks for the explanation Nick.

However please try to double check these points as I think you may be pleasantly surprised.

I don't think there is a validation date with RSMS like there is with other visas. The only requirement I am aware of is that you have to take up the post within 6 months of arriving in Aus.

I also don't think the meds or police checks come into play once you have the visa grant.

Blimey I just found this thread and now I'm thoroughly depressed. I am waiting for formal job offer (had provisional subject to occy health etc) and already have PCC's - hoping to lodge nomination and visa app at same time in Sydney/Parramatta, then will book meds straight away. I am aiming for a November/December date to move to Oz but from the way you lot are talking I could be looking at next year?

I cant cope, I need a lie down and a large G&T.
