Looking at immitracker, no one has gotten anything. It’s been a slow progress for ICT Security Specialist.

Got CO contact for functional English for spouse which was not sufficient.
Applied: 16 November 2018
CO contact: 25 Feb 2019
ITC Security Specialist
I will strongly recommend to upload pte results rather that collecting documents from universities regarding English medium study. PTE overall 30 required.

Can someone inform me how much is the waiting period usually after submitting pte results?

I have read in this thread that it is better to submit SD for change of appearance for your child. My son's passport was received when he was less than 2 month old and now he is 4 year old and there is significant change in his appearance as expected.

Can someone please answer below question :
1. If same case was applicable for you, then did CO contacted anyone for the same
2. If, for safer side, i need to submit this, then can someone please share the format?
3. Under which section i need to submit
4. What needs to be done as far as navigation is concern on immiaccount if i have already lodged the visa
5. Is it ok to modify anything as i lodged the application recently ( submitted on 18th Feb ) or its too late

Thanks

Popping it up .. Can someone who was in same situation please answer this ?

1/2 - No personal experience, and someone posted their SD template on another thread - if you search Expat Forums you might be able to find it.

3 - Presumably your sons section on Immiaccount - even if in the 'Other' section and labelled appropriately.

4 - What do you mean here?

5 - Depends what you want to modify: you can change your address / passport number / add an applicant / notify the department of changes in your circumstances etc. You can't modify anything that will change your points score however, is my understanding.

this is good to see that they have started picking the files for ICT Security Specialists who lodged in Nov 2018.
I have already submitted my Spouse's vocational English (PTE 40+ in each modules) that was taken in Sept 2017. According to DoHA's website, Vocational English is valid for 36 months, not sure if this is the same for 189. The result has been send online from PTE website as well.
Also I got my spouse's completion letter from University, I will add the document this week. Is here something else we need to do?
Can you please provide the document list you uploaded?

@Bandish congrats on your visa. I would really appreciate if you could predict our grant as well. We are in a pickle (will write the story when my husband gets the grant) and are hoping to get the grant soon. Our timeline is
Visa lodged 21st November 2018 (our anniversary date)
CO contact - 20th Feb 2019
Reason - Australian PCC. We forgot to upload it
Please predict it. We are hoping to get it sooner and not later.

Upload your spouse's university transcript too if you are able to - some applicants have been asked for it as well :)

Excellent - you had omitted that in your previous post so thought I'd flag it - hope the grant is around the corner!
