If they won’t work on 189 visa applications, then the processing time will be much higher in next month. If DHA’s only motto was to encourage people to apply regional visa, they could at least tell new visa applicants that 189 visa processing time will be higher from a specific date. I think DHA doesn’t know that they are dealing with human beings. Rant over.

It was too good to be true for us, looking at the current timelines and the discussion in this forum.





Please find the details of grant in the attachment :



Our Lodgement Date: 14th Feb 2019

Family of 4 (2Kids)

ANZSCO: 261313



We received CO contact for salary details on 18th June - TAx documents, salary slips, etc.. (Replied with all the docs in 5-10 days)
Congs. I want to see how the co contact looks like. Is it a specific ask or a generic ask

Can you share screenshot of that too

Congrats !! My last CO contact was on the 5th of June, this piece of news does give me a glimmer of hope.

Hang in there everyone!

Life is stuck!!

No one wants to hire you on a bridging visa, now 18-33 months is killing.

So hopeless, had to leave a decent job because of the visa.

Can't we raise the concern anywhere.

189 visa applied under 261311 on 22 Feb 2019 with 2 CO contacts.

Kind regards

Mohit

Why do companies refuse to have a person on bridging visa?
I am guessing you are working as a developer, and most IT companies are pretty chill with visas and stuff as long as you are legally working for them.

Why did you leave your job?

I also saw a new article which DHA has published today under news segment.

That article is pretty grim

One Paragraph from the article

"NOM is forecast to increase in the short term due to continuing strong international student demand, the resumption of growth in demand for temporary skilled workers, and increasing arrivals from migrants that first travel to Australia on a visitor visa

However, this is only a temporary effect and 2019 is the peak. As set out in the budget papers, NOM is anticipated to be lower in 2020, and lower again in 2021 and 2022, mostly due to changes in student numbers. "

NOM - Net Overseas Migration

I dont understand, you were working in IT and they let you go because you were on bridging or you were not working in IT and they let you go because you were on bridging?
