Since we did not have the CO allocation so we asked about that and also the process.

Dear friends,

Is it OK to call immigration office for status when you have submitted an application through an agent?

what is the normal timing for 489 visa grants these days.

Regards,
Mirza

My advice - don't call or email until 3 months as it is DIBP's prescribed processing time.

To get faster grant, be sure to upload all necessary documents before CO is allocated. CO is generally allocated within a month of visa lodgement.

Dear experts I have a doubt regarding 489FS visa application documents upload.

I am applying through an agent.
My agent has lodged the visa application. Now when uploading the documents my agent is saying that we can upload the documents related to the sponsor(sponsor declaration form,documents to prove our relationship, passport copies etc) only when the co asks for it. Is it true?

I am confused because I have seen many forum members advising to upload all the documents before the co gets allocated.

It's not true. If you are expecting direct grant, upload all the documents before CO is allocated.

are there any "first entry" requirement once a 489 visa granted?
and if yes...
-how many days for us to prepare for the first entry? says within 1 year?
-the 4-year VISA expiry will count from first entry or VISA grant date?

thank you!

Frontload everything including medicals, do not wait for CO contact. That will save our as well as CO's time.
