We had almost exactly the same timeline. Now I am a bit delayed and need to wait for my wife's IELTS results. But I have plenty of time because I plan on leaving for Australia in September/October.

Enjoy Sydney!

Thanks BenJay !
Same time line (well apart from visa grant) and even same occupation (although there's no such thing as a general SAP specialist - I'm into utilities and BI, by the way).

When do you expect your wife's IELTS results? Has she already taken the test? (Just to know when it will be my turn to congratulate )

The IELTS exam is scheduled on the 6th of March so I expect to upload the test results by 22nd of March. I have contacted the CO and arranged the deadline extension. By this time all medicals should be changed to finalised, I hope.
So, in the worst scenario by the end of April I should get the grant letter
As for the SAP, I specialise in project management and methodologies used in ERP implementations.
It is good to know that more and more October CSL applicants get the visas already. For the rest, it is only a question of time

Hi Juan,
As you can see the timeline in my signature, I was asked by my CO on 11.01.2010 for PCC and Medicals, which were done on 28.01.2010 and received in Sydney on 16.02.2010. They were sent by my doctor with the regular air mail (not courier) so it took the documents more time to arrive to Sydney. Now I am checking their status, which should change to finalised within two weeks.

Can someone please share what the EXACT changes happened on 08 Feb for 175 visa ? and who is impacted. Pls backup your advice through some link etc.

They removed the MODL List, this means a direct loss of 15 points. I am not sure if this applies to new applicants only or it will affect applications that are currently in progress.

They also announced that starting July 1st, they will remove the CSL , and come up with a new Job list.

They removed the MODL qualifying points, and this means a direct loss of 15 points if your job is on the MODL. I am not sure if this applies only to the new applicant, or it will affect the current applications that are in-porgress.

My score was already 135, and I applied in Oct 2009, so even if it affects the current applications I hope I still got a chance.

Also, in next July they will stop the CSL , and they will issue a new job list

I actually submitted mine, and they got finalized, but didn't hear back since then...

Lynetteh, can you please share your time line in the signature ?

The latest from me - all police checks completed and uploaded (UK, Aus and Germany), and had medicals last Wednesday. Sent to HOC yesterday by email (it's a long story!) so all docs awaiting visa decision by immigration.
