If you provide all requested documents at the time of application you may get your visa in as little as 3 weeks. Otherwise it usually depends on how quickly you can provide everything.
If you apply offshore and your medicals get referred to the MOC (Medical Officer of the Commonwealth) then this may cause a delay of up to 2 months.

Default Entry date for PR under visa 189

hi guys,

had a query. once you are granted PR under Vusa 189, what is the latest date by which one has to enter in Australia. I think its specified in the visa grant letter. But if some one can give first hand information if its 6 months, 8 months or more.

WOW!! that's amazingly quick. These dates you have provided is for the main visa application after the EOI is accepted. Right?

Can you also please let me know how much time it took for getting your EOI accepted?

Generally the initial entry date must take place within 1 year of the earliest of PCCs or medicals. Basically all those docs are valid for 1 year & you must make the initial entry before any of those docs expires.

I am not sure if it's the same for all assessing bodies. I can only speak for ACS. Their website says approx. 12 weeks but I got my result in 4 weeks time.

There is no standardized TAT for skills assessment, different agencies doing it have different timeline... As fas as I know, VETASESS takes the longest.

Hello, yes the dates I have provided is from visa payment/submission of application to visa grant.

We were given an invitation to apply for a visa less than a week after we submitted our EOI.
