I got a query from Assessment officer and not the CO . They have emailed to my lawyer of the agency in Australia.They are asking my reference letter of my current employment . I have given my offer letter of the current employment as I have joined recently in the company. Now I have to submit this reference letter by Aug 1 to the assessment office.

Analyst Programmer
Initial EOI - 14.03.2018 - 189,190,489 (65,70,75 pts)
EOI - UPDATED - 09.07.2019 - 189(75 pts), 190(80 pts), 489(85 pts)

I will lose 5 pts for my age by this august end.

I have a question.

If we receive state nominations and everything goes well so do we receive a direct grant or ITA from skillset?

Thanks

Hey there,
No update so far, no CO contact, no employment verification, no nothing.
The status in immiaccount is still RECEIVED.....
I lodged and paid on 19 December 2018. As of today (29 July 2019), its been 7 Months and 9 Days (222 Days) and still counting.... [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.expatforum.com/expats/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG] I ll update this forum as soon as I have any news. Somehow, I am not feeling much anxious, don't know if its a blessing or a curse at the moment [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.expatforum.com/expats/images/smilies/cool.gif[/IMG]
I can be tracked with the nick name Abbasi on immitraker.
Cheers,
I lodged on 20th December 2018 and received the grant on 9th July 2019.

Like many of you, I also felt less hopeful with each day passed especially after waiting for more than 6 months. There was no CO contact and I did not know how long more it would take.

Slowly, I didn't check as diligently as before. And like some of the experts here said before, the grant will come when you least expected it. So the grant came unexpectedly.

The wait is frustrating but the moment you received the grant, it seemed to make the long wait worth it for just a short while.

I will continue to keep those waiting for your grants in my prayers. Hope to hear more good news from you guys.

Thanks Mrspiggy for always keeping all of us in prayers.

I’ve been checking the immitracker and this forum less frequently. When there’s no expectation (on when the grant will come), there will be no disappointment.

I’ve also stopped asking/wondering/figuring why was I asked by the CO evidence that I lodged offshore when I’m obviously offshore. I’ve learnt to accept the fact that it’s a matter of luck why and when you’ll be contacted by CO and when the CO will issue the grant after the contact.

Good luck everyone who’s still waiting. Let’s hope for the best! Cheers!
