It took 8 months for my visa as I am privileged to be married to an Ozzie and that was for a spouse visa. From looking at previous posts, if you're successful for the relevant work visa the process takes around a month.

Not serving in WAPol yet. I missed out on the summer campaign, so when my visa was granted in October I applied under the Lateral entry scheme. I went out in Feb and passed the selection process. I THINK I'm through and waiting for a start date but WAPol aren't giving anything away. Just sitting tight at the moment.
Thanks for explaining Pincher, and for the advice. I'll keep mine crossed for you if you keep yours crossed for me!!

Stu.

Will someone please remind me that there is no way there will be any emails sent regarding progression to the next stage until at least after closing date for application.

Maybe I'll just check my emails one more time, just in case......

Aaarrrghhhh.

You'll get an e-mail acknowledging receipt of your application and that you'll be contacted within 30 days.
And that's just the start of a VERY long waiting process.

Sent and receipt email received. Oh crumbs! I've had the application, bar the personal statements done for ages. Numerous drafts for each of them before I was satisfied and finally submitted them. Let's hope I've written it well enough to get through the paper sift!

Hi all,
new to this and not sure if it has been covered or not. Should I have received notification that my application has been received. I sent it off yesterday however have had no notification to say they have it.
Thanks

Dunc, I received what looks pretty much like an automated reply, about five minutes after I sent the email. Content was along the lines of "thank you for your interest......... if applying for police officer we've received your email....".

Thanks for the reply's I thought I should have had something. Had an issue with the email sending so have sent it once more explaining the situation. Hopefully won't be marked down any if they receive it twice.
