ps great updates tiger
Congratulations on the CO Rob and Kath.

I would guess you need things like pay stubs, tax forms, and letters describing the job you were doing for the specific work experience.

I'm sure you'll be receiving a note soon with instructions.

Hi there

I only discovered the BE forum very recently – what a gem!

We're also April applicants – we lodged an online non-MODL 175 application on 15 April (no agent), and I discovered yesterday that we might have a CO. Our application is being 'processed further'.

All documents are marked as received except specific work experience, which is still marked as required. I'd like to send through payslips and bank statements and so on as they suggest, but I saw on DIAC's website that they say they'll provide you an email address to send info to once you're being processed.

Sooo... do I upload all the info anyway and hope they see it, or do I wait for the CO to contact me with a direct email address? Has anyone else tried one or the other idea?

Any advice much appreciated!

You should have contact from a CO soon so wait for the requests. I had a work experience document still marked as required and when the CO emailed me he just wanted confirmation of a couple of things.

Congrats on the CO - things are moving.

Thanks for the advice – I'll be checking the inbox every hour!

I keep forgetting that for every bit of progress, there's another wait involved

Cheers

Hi Tiger,

We mark Sept 11th here in Canada. There is a big ceremony going on at noon today at the Park with all the firefighters from the area remembering their fallen collegues in New York.

I can't believe it has been 7 years. Where does the time go. I remember that day so vividly.... not really wanting to believe that it happend.

Take care

Karen

There is a concert today in the UK, and it has been on the news channels/radio most of the day with the minutes silence broadcast too.

Hi there

Just new to the forum - Well done to all of you who have already got your visa

I must admit reading forum's from earlier on it was a bit daunting but very reassuring to hearing the good news of the April applicants.

I submitted a 176 on 14th April but did not frontload medicals etc as was told not to - placed an online application on our own (no agent used). I am absolutely ecstatic for those of you who have got through - Is anyone who hasn't frontloaded documents had any news yet of a CO?

All of my family is in Perth and I am desperate to go.

Saddo from Scotland who knows their TRN and passport number off by heart!!!!! through checking the application status through DIAC!!!

Reading this forum has really cheered me up

Hi Wendy -

Welcome to the Forum.

Have you made your Meds appointment yet? I think it's time. Even if you do it tomorrow, it will be at least 2 weeks before everything is turned in (unless there's electronic reporting like they have in Australia).

Also might want to get the PCCs done.

I think Dodge has a CO - I don't know if he frontloaded PCCs and MEDS or not.....

Hi Wendy,

I agree with tiger. If you are from a low risk country, its time for you to turn in medicals and pcc. CO could be allocated to any April applicant anytime now and frontloading could increase your likelyhood of getting straight to visa. Welcome to April thread.

Thanks Tiger and Caliburn for the nice welcome.

I had our pcc's done in May and they have just been sitting in the drawer therefore have taken your suggestion and frontloaded our pcc's today. I am just a SOL 176 application and I notice that a lot of the ones being approved are 175 and MODL (which the DIAC does point out are processed quicker). I am thinking about getting medicals done however wouldn't like to be in a position that we would have to pay for them twice?? Do you think it is worth it?? It certainly seems that way.

Hi to Mel we are also heading the Perth!!!!! with our 2 children what part you going to we are hoping to head to Carramar (where my family live) near joondalup about 20 minutes by train from Perth City. Have you been to Perth before?? Its great Been 4 times now

Keep in touch on the Perth thread too. We're trying for Perth, but haven't been

Will also be looking near Joondalup, so be great to meet up one day!

Have already been in touch with the athletics club for our 2 girls, who are 11 and 13!
