Every one has their own opinion related to visa grant and you are entitled to vent out your anger.

But i am sure that this topic is not a right place to discuss about contradicting opinions about onshore & offshore applicants.

It is a place for forum members to help out each other in lodging visa, reporting grants and assuring, comforting members who are waiting for a long time to get their grants.

Again, visa grants are controlled by Australian immigration and it is more transparent unlike some of the countries.

All the best and wishing you a speedy grant.

Peace Bro.

Thanks !
Renewal of passport is a routine thing
It does not affect the processing
Infact, you may not receive a grant if any applicant has less then 6 months validity on the date of grant
So renew the passports without any worry

Just fill the new numbers of the passports when you get them using the update us link in the Immiaccount

Cheers

Where is the proof?
If your only proof is immitracker, you do realize that it only represents at most 20% of the actual applicant and most users are actually offshore.

Even if your claim is correct, do you realize that:
1. Some of the offshore applicants are also those who have studied, worked, paid insurance, paid school fee, and paid taxes to Australia, but their visa had expired or they have to go back. You got your bridging visa while these applicants don't

2. Those who didn't study in Aussie, they don't have the extra 5 point like we do from studying 2 yr in Aussie. They have to find another way to get extra point.

They give some benefits to the onshore applicant, you know, and I think it is that's how they make it fair.

And you know what, I just did my math.
Even with immitracker data, offshore is 40% processed while onshore is 30% processed for Nov cases.

Thank you very much NB. Very much worried. All of a sudden this doubt popped up yesterday. We have not got any CO contact yet. Will discuss with her tomorrow itself.

We did our ACS in August 2017. Can we use the same SD?

We have applied thro an angent and my husband has claimed points for work experience from 2 MNCs. 10 months from company A ( after deduction of 2 years by ACS) and 6 years from Company B.

We got all required docs from Company B.

For Company A , even for ACS we could not get R n R on letter head so got 3 rd party affidavit from his seniors.

Now for Visa Application ,our agent has got a self attested affidavit for the same.
Is that the right procedure? Self attested ones are accepted ?

We are expecting our grant anytime and this is now a matter of concern.

Code: 261313
Visa Filed On : 16 Nov 2018
Self attested affidavit for experience?
Are you sure that the agent is a legitimate one or was not high when he took that decision?

Self attestation for experience has been stopped by DHA several years back
Now only a reference letter or an SD issued by a senior colleague in the company is accepted as evidence for experience

You may be in serious trouble if I have understood your case correctly
You should have uploaded the same SD that you used to get the ACS assessment, and maybe the co would have accepted it

Have a serious talk with your agent and ask him to rectify the documents immediately

Cheers

We applied on 23th Nov. 2017, my wife being primary applicant as a hospital administrator.
Our last contact with CO was on 5th December 2018 for medicals and PCC again as they expired.
After that no news and waiting.....
Regards
Thanks Rajesh

Ohh.. you got a CO contact so late... After a year Why so..

I assume your wife's ANZSCO code is 134211.

I think your grant would be around 20-March-2019.
All the Best !

This is my first post in this forum, however have been a silent observer right through the application process. This forum has been of tremendous help as quite a few queries have been answered by the experts in this group 🙂. Congratulations to all the folks who have received their grants! 🙂

To all the experts I have a question to ask(it maybe a silly one [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.expatforum.com/expats/images/smilies/tongue.gif[/IMG]). Our application (wife and I) received a CO contact for PTE scores to be sent online and proof of functional ability of the spouse(yours truly) which by the was already attached 😛. So my doubt is whether this additional information sought by the CO is the only check pending before the grant and that she/he is ok with the other documents? Or is there a chance that we could get a CO contact for some other reason too?

Our timelines are as below:
Job Code: 261313 (software engineer)
Points claimed:80
Partner Points: none
ACS assessment Received: Aug 2018
Invite: 11th Sept 2018
Lodgement: 14th Sept 2018
CO contact: 26th Nov 2018
Replied: 29th Nov 2018
Grant: ?

We haven't received any communication post that . Experts and predictors 🙂 , what could be the tentative timeline to expect the 'golden mail'? Your guesses could help folks like us keep up the positive energy 🙂
Hey guys any inputs on this request pls?
Hey bandish, could you please help with this doubt please ?

The general trend for CO contact is 1 contact. But there are cases with 2 or more CO contacts. If all your docs are proper(you should verify again), your grant seems near...
I think 28-Feb-2019
All the Best !
