Hi Kimberly

welcome to the forum, our visa took 6 months from the date of application of the EOI to actually getting the blue stickers in the passport ............ its not as scary as it looks

Hey Kimberley,

As alanmacc has said, welcome to the forum!

I was 4 months from submitting my EOI and getting the blue stickers in my passport.

What are your plans? Have you guys got job offers or going out to find one?

Paul.

So it doesn't look there are any hard and fast rules in terms of timing then. We submitted EOI in July, got selected immediately with only 125 points (no job offer) and submitted our ITA this week. Let's see what happens next.....
