Congratualtions for you.
hope he same for all of us.
I want to ask you regarding applying offshore while you are in australia as i am doing the same.
when you got the pre-grant letter, does it contains that you are approved or accepted?
You have to leave australia within how many days from the pre-grant letter?
How long you should stay out of Australia?

Thanks..

Pre-grant letter does not say if it is approved or rejected..it just says that 'final decision cannot be made unless u depart from aus'..However, a pre-grant letter is issued when everything else (job verificatn, medical,pcc etc) is met..so normally there shud nt be any reason why pre-grant letter wont be followed by grant letter, unless some exceptional incidents happen!

You have to leave australia within how many days from the pre-grant letter?

After u get pre-grant, u will have to inform CO abt ur departure within 28 days...also in the same letter CO will mention tht "if visa is accepted, u will have to make first entry in aus no later than XXX (in my case 25th sep, 2010) date"...i recokn, this date is effectively the date before which u have to depart aus so tht u have time to depart aus, get grant, and enter aus as PR before this date.

How long you should stay out of Australia?

Depends which country u r going to..the process is as follows-

- u inform the CO abt ur departure date and destination
- that info is diarised, so that he can send u grant letter after tht date
- u depart aus
- CO mails u the grant letter (email)...also ur visa info are transferred to the aus embassy in ur destination country
- u print out the grant letter and go to embassy..they cancel ur existing visa, and stamp PR on ur passport
- u come back to aus

Step 4 happens very fast...I havent hard a case where it took more than 2-3 days...in my case and most of my friend's cases, grant letter was mailed right after the departure (I guess immigration check at aus airport is integrated nicely so that CO gets to know when u actually depart as per the plan, and normally sends across grant letter without delay,i.e., if it is not weekend etc..)...step 5 depends on which country u going to..example, in india u dont go to aus embassy directly...u hand it over to an agency called VFS who does it for u...it takes 2-7 days

I did it from malaysia, altho india is my home country....and there, i got it in 5 mins, over the counter...

So how long to stay out of aus? well I planned for 2.5 working days off to malaysia (my oz employer gave me tht much leave only and touch wood i pulled it off)...worst case scenario, I wud say u shud plan for 10-15 days.

Hope that helps

Hi,
Just to update the August folks, that I have been assigned a case officer today. I applied for VE 175 on 8/8/09. The case officer requested only form 80. All my documents show met except form 80 for which status is requested, while medicals and PCC still show requried. However in the body of email it is mentioned that if I can't provide medicals and PCC within 28 days I should show the receipts as proof that I have applied for these. I am a little lost as should I get medicals and PCC done at this stage or wait for the CO request again.

Cheers

OMG! OMG! OMG! All my documents have changed to met as of 24/11/09 and my status page says my medicals have been requested. I haven't had any emails from any case officer and my status page doesn't mention police clearance anywhere. Do you think I should just do medicals and police checks anyway?
Or should I send a PLE?
Any advice anyone?
