Thanks for you prompt reply mate.

Just don't see what the point was when they said not to cancel the visa... you might be right. It probably will raise unnecessary red flags..

Just want to see if there's someone here have done the same thing and got away with it..

Everyone,

I am really worried about my situation

I got an invitation 190 on skill select and once i open than there is tab to APPLY FOR VISA.

once i click on that tab its directs me to immi login, where i add my immi login and enter to visa application page.

At this page i can see applicaiton to lodge like details first name last name, passport, country and etc

then i close the account as i was planning to lodge application at later stage but


1. I cannot login to Skillslect after clicking apply visa tab and importing the application to my immi account (may be because EOI is locked . Not sure and it happens with everyone.

2. I cannot see my visa application in my anymore

3. I cannot generate a new application for 190 and link with my EOI. Please see the atteched image.

Please help.

I have applied my 189 visa Jan 2019, got CO contacted in Mar (police clearance, partner info) and July (partner info) - and now still waiting...........

My partner is current holding a student visa, and I was hoping the visa can come through any time soon.

She's paying massive amount for school, and I am thinking of telling her to cancel her student visa (since I applied my 189 with her, she will be on bridging visa even she cancels her student).

Is that going to effect our Visa application? I asked a few migration agents and they all said better off leave it, keep studying and wait patiently.

Any helps/ suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance...

Hi.. if your spouse has got the bridging visa based on her current student visa, it’s advisable to not cancel her student visa. Because, it will make her bridging visa void and she can’t stay legally in Australia. Reason is that bridging visas are issued to onshore applicants to stay legally after the expiry of their current visa and it inherits the same rights from the expired visa by allowing the applicant to continue their stay until a decision is made on the visa that they have applied for.

Hi Gang,
I got assessed as Technologist by Engineers Australia even though I completed 4 year college and 7 years experience as Civil engineer. My friend (same profile as mine but mechanical) got assessed as professional engineer.
When I contacted EA they told that I have to relodge my application again if I'm not satisfied with their outcome. I have already applied for 189 with the assessment but if I have to reapply with EA again, will I need to lodge new 189 application.
Please suggest the best option as I am unaware what the best choice is.
Thanks.

First of, did you apply to be assessed as an Engineering Technologist? Or was it recommended after reviewing your case? I’m asking because usually if they do not think your experience matches the occupation you’re seeking to be assessed as, they’d usually recommend one that fits your qualification and experience.
Secondly, if you do decide to get another assessment, that’s fine. If it returns positive, since you’re yet to be invited, you can always update your EOI with the new occupation.

Below was from my acquaintance:

The processing time for 190 nsw when I lodged was 11-14 months... I got grant in 4.5 months... So I think you can't be dis-heartened by these estimations... I personally feel once we get the invite, that's it.. after that things are beyond your control.. you will get grant sooner or later..

Let's hope!!

Fyi
 
Hi all,

I just checked my immiaccount and the estimated processing time is now 18-33 months. As we know this time is just an estimate on current times, it is not reliable. It also looks like 190 backlog will be cleared soon, who knows.

I have recently emailed my local MP (i am an onshore applicant) to expedite my application to return home due to a family emergency as I am on a Bridging Visa C with travel restrictions. They got in touch with someone from the minister's office (David Coleman) and advised to upload request to expedite with supporting documents which I am doing now.

Fingers crossed

You can get a small portion back if they have not touched your application
But there is no surety

Cheers
