Hi,
I am planning to apply for ACT, what all the documents you have uploaded?
Did they ask for proof of funds if yes, what have you provided?
I am gathering all the documents, so it will be helpful if you could detail it out.

Regards,
Hema Patil

For 190 visa proof of funds is not required . However you need to upload payslips/bank statement to show salary transfers . I frontloaded all docs including medicals and PCC.

Hi austimmiacnt,

Congratulations on your visa grant!

Well, in my case, below is my history of application as of now for 190 ACT (212415) application:

EOI submission: 6 June 2017
ACT Nomination filed: 8 Aug 2017
CO assigned: 19 Feb 2018
ITA received: 19 Mar 2018
PCC pending
Medical pending
Visa application submission: Most probably by 15 April
Grant:

Could you give me an idea how soon could the grant come? Your valuable inputs could me more encouragement. And are there any chances that the visa is refused despite all paperwork valid and correct?

Thank you for your kind wishes.
In order for direct grant , I would strongly advise to keep application ‘decision ready‘ which means you should get your medicals done n obtain pcc. If everything is in order, you will most likely get direct grant. But if co request for any document, then delay can occur as happened in many cases. Good luck.
Grant can come within 3 months in case of no co contact. However nothing is guaranteed in this process regarding how long it will take to get grant.
Very rare chance of visa refusal at this stage unless documents are not genuine.

State has no impact on processing (apart from Tasmania).

Thousands of cases gathered on the web-site, clearly illustrate that.

Average processing is ~150 days for ALL states.

Hi,
There is a condition mentioned in ACT guideline document that -
- Attach evidence of a genuine job offer by an ACT employer in your nominated occupation; or
- Attach evidence that there are, currently, sufficient ACT employment opportunities in your nominated occupation that are relevant to your skill set and recent experience. The evidence must include:
- Personal research into recent advertised positions relevant to the nominated occupation (a minimum of 5 vacancies and not more than 8). You must provide a copy of the full advertisement (saved as a .pdf):
- It is essential that the date of the job advertisement as well as the location of the job is clearly displayed;
Web links alone are not acceptable and, if provided without the accompanying advertisement, will result in the criterion not being met.
- An employment statement for each advertisement. You must explain how your qualifications, knowledge and experience relate to and meet the requirements for each of the job advertisements.
Please note:
- You must be able to demonstrate that you have the relevant qualifications, skill set and work experience etc. to meet the criteria of the advertised position; for example if the position requires: - A certain number of years relevant work experience: you must have that experience; - A minimum qualification: you must hold that qualification;  Australian work experience: you must have that experience; - Citizenship / security clearance, you must be a citizen or have the clearance. - Job advertisements must be recent. Advertisements must be dated no more than 6 weeks before submission of the application.

Employment opportunities requiring Australian citizenship and/or an Australian Security clearance will not be accepted as evidence of employability. - Job advertisements related to a position vacancy directly or indirectly related to working with the Australian (Federal) Government will not be accepted unless you can demonstrate that Australian citizenship and or a security clearance is not a job requirement. Supplying an advertisement for a Federal Government job which does not mention citizenship is not sufficient evidence that it is not required.

How do you say about it? Because most of my jobs are into federal government jobs/ defense jobs, it is very difficult to get a job which does not need Australian citizenship/ baseline clearance.

Let me know if you have faced the same issue or you had enough employment opportunities to showcase.

Regards,
Patil

For example my birth record or the police documents? I am confused because I read in some sites that it is necessary and in others that it is not. I would love not to have to do it because it is quite expensive to certify each sheet.
Thank you very much for your help! Wish me luck in the process!

Maybe in future they might include your occupation again. Try searching in other states, most likely occupations will be refreshed in July 2018 in order for you to get a chance again. Keep checking for updates. All the best.
