Just as we finished everything, we discovered that our children's passports are expiring in a month. Anyway, after searching this forum and reading thro' we decided to post the application, and then renew the passports. Any ideas abt this? Any advice/opinion etc wud be welcome.Thx...and yes, best of luck to all of us...
Hi there,

1. you will get points for Age on the date when your app was acknowledged, May is too far so dont worry about that

2. Normally, the passport validiity is also not a serious issue as in these kind of situations they will ask you to provide details of renewed passports once the case has been finalized. Passport Validity is an issue when the Visa is being granted.
3. Its v.hard to comment on your question about Sept nothing is guaranteed, depends on many factors (if you are on MODL or not and etc). Do some reasearch on this forum about the timeline of people who were in same boats like yours.

Goog luck

Hi guys,

Its been a week for me now since I've sent the app. I was expecting to have Credit Card charged in the first week which hasnt really happened so far.

Has anyone else made any progress so far ?

Hi fellow Marchies,

Out of interest I had a look at last years March Applicants thread.

http://britishexpats.com/forum/showt...rch+Applicants

Some of the 136 MODLs got visas as quick as June!!!!

Check it out!

Default Re: March Applicants

We have sent of our 136 visa app on 08/03/2007, ASPC would then have received it 09/03/07 by Express Post. Ours was a wopping 164 pages, excluding the checklist.

Just so glad it is finally in, now my blood pressure can return to normal. It is really a daunting task doing a TRA app and then applying for PR visa straight after. I need a holiday after all that paperwork.

We will be frontloading meds & pcc's as we are already in Aus on 457 visa. Will be sending that off the AFP PCC application this week and then we'll probably go for medicals as soon as we get our case/file number or something.

Hang in there guys. It seems like we might get lucky before September, I hope

Hi,
Well - it's a bit scary actually, to think that things MAY work out sooner than we expected. We were sorta looking at Jan/Feb 2008 timeline (OMG!!!) But it also seems like things have slowed down a bit in the last 1 year. So - it's all still v v fluid. Anyways, we'd all start getting really worried and excited the moment any one of us gets the green signal.

BTW, We've already got our PCC in hand just now. I'm not sure I understand abt Frontloading ... can this hasten up the process? Also, there's a validity period of 1 year on the PCC, if I'm not mistaken. So, will the PCC run out by the time the papers come for scrutiny?

Thanks Janet, for filling our details in, God Bless.

I'll be a March applicant too! Just waiting for the results of my thesis and I'll be applying for an Onshore - Independent Skilled Graduate Visa. Almost ready to go, just one more piece of paper and I'm there!

Good luck to all!

Hello All,

We are also March applicants as our agent who is based in Perth sent off our application on the 28th of Feb, so DIAC should have received it by the 2nd of March. Hopefully we don't have to wait too long as we are a 136 non-modl. LiverpoolLass we have sent you a pm so we can be added to the list.

Wishing everyone Good Luck and to speedy CO's.

Julie and Dave

Hi Gak,

I think that once you have your acknowledgment (with your file reference number) you can scan in the PCC and email it to ASPC. There is some info on the DIMA's website

http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/visa...fessionals.htm

I plan to email our PCCs. As you say there is the risk that you may have to get another PCC if you are waiting ages for a case officer. I think for some in the past it has shaved some time off the process. I don't plan to do meds until around end of May/June as that is just too much money to risk having to do again.

Cheers, Janet

Eeek!
Got the courier picking our MODL 136 visa tommorow - tonight, I'm pooing my pants!!!
How many times do I have to get it out of the envelope, read it again, double, triple check and put it back in the envelope! I'm sending myself insane

Anyhow, looks like this nutter will be joining you on the March list!
Good Luck All!

good luck everyone
Hoping to join the March Applicants, but can I just ask what people did on the Skilled 136 checklist form.
1. Did you leave "evidence that the main applicant has vocational English" blank if you are born in UK and have UK passport.

2. Additional evidence for Schedule 6a requirements - please can someone tell me what this is - I'm pretty sure its n/a to me but don't want to leave it blank or n/a if others have filled it in.

My spouse will be coming with me but has not had her skills assessed.

Please help, I feel I'm on the last hurdle but this checklist is causing more grief than the main appplication form.
Thanks if you can help
