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
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.
