Nooooooo. I lodged in Sep with 80 points and still no grant. No CO assigned as well Could this be as medicals are not uploaded yet?

Best to get your medicals done ASAP. This might also delay your appln process.

You should never wait for a CO contact. That is the last thing you want.
CO contact will pushy your appln by 4-5 months. Upload medicals ASAP

Applied through agent and we are offshore.

1. It's been more than 3 months and so far my agent says that CO is not assigned. By when should I expect CO to be assigned?

2. Does it make difference if medicals are not done while lodging the application? My agent asked to wait until CO contacts and asks for medicals. Though I feel with this we lose the option of getting a direct grant. Any recommendations?

3. With the application lodged on 24-Sep-2018, by when should we expect to get the grant?

We are a family of 4 (husbant, wife and 2 kids)

Thanks a lot

Your points cease to matter afaik once you lodge your application.

Personally I would avoid a CO contact for more info and do the medicals as others suggested as well

Hi mate,

It's not as easy as it seems to get Registered especially for Overseas Nurse in Australia. But it is far more easier than those who come here in student visa.
If your wife wish to get Registered in Australia, first she needs to contact AHPRA( Nursing bodies). They will assess her degree and all experience claimed. Once her application is finalised, they will advise that some one course need to be done, which is commonly know as IRON program for nurse. This course is roughly for 6 months with some months placement and once she does compete, she will be registered as Nurse in Australia and will be eligible to work.

Cheers

As per my understanding the points are calculated as per the visa lodge date ( infact perhaps till EOI). Once visa is lodged it all remains. So points are not changed,

Thanks for your feedback bro!!

You can "import" your application to your own immiaccount to track it:
https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help...n-paper/online

You would need,
"Application ID, date of birth, travel document number and country for the main applicant"

Usually 2-4 months after a CO contact folks receive a decision of some sort - plus you're reaching the global processing time limit too, so perhaps it is around the corner.

No harm chucking in an inquiry via the Feedback Form on the DHA website
