Hi Zahra Nasreen,

hard to tell because:

1.) First you have to wait until you get an invite. How long that will take and if you'll get an invite at all depends on your occupation code. If you have an occupation under pro-rata arrangements it can take many months. See the SkillSelect page, reports tab.

2.) After you have received the invite and applied it usually takes 2-3 months to get a case officer (CO).

3.) Once you have a CO, you should get a grant within 3 months if everything goes well. However, referred medicals or external security checks can delay processing by many months. Unfortunately Pakistani applicants often face long external security checks - that can easily delay processing by 6-12 months. Head to the http://www.expatforum.com/expats/aus...akistanis.html thread for experiences from other members. Note that timelines vary a lot between members, so this is only indicative.
