Hi guys,

I am in the midst of filling up my application form for 489 through ImmiAccount.

In my application I am claiming partner points, however nowhere in the form is asking if I am claiming partner points, and in the list of documents requiree under my partner's name no skill assessment or employment-related document was requested.

How do I go about proving my partner point then? Or did I miss something in my form?

Did any 28th December case receive grant recently?

Waited around 6 months plus for the grant.

Why are they increasing processing time for 489? Earlier people were getting visa within 3-4 months but this year everything got changed. And they are saying from Nov onward they will prioritize 491? Alteast they should clear all the application of 489 visa for PY 2018-2019 before commencement of 491.
Seemed like those who lodged in late November 2018 onwards waited more than 5 to 6 months for the grant. Some waited even longer.

Hello, I am facing a terrible situation, I applied for SA 489 visa on 4th July and lost 10 points of age after 2 days. Few people on this forum say that points should be 65+10 till the time of nomination/invitation and few people say SA only checks point at the time of application submission. Can anybody help me out in this? Is there anyone who has faced a similar situation?

Thank you.

5-6 months to get the grant provided there’s no CO contact. From the immitracker, there are many Dec applicants who are still waiting for response from the CO after their first CO contact in late May (6 months after their lodgement). Me too, I’ve been waiting for the response since 11/6.

I’ve asked my migration agent and she said there’s no way (no phone number) to contact the case officer or anyone to check the status of your application. Thus, I’m not sure who and how some applicants can call to enquire about their status. ☹️

I think the wait time has increased by a lot more from 3 to 4 months earlier to 5 to 7 months now.

At first, I thought I might have to wait for 1 to 2 more months for CO contact as it seemed most of the December applicants have CO contact. I am thankful that the grant came earlier than expected.

Keeping all who are waiting for their grants in my prayer. Hope yours will come as a surprise soon.

The last time I checked was in late June. Status was still showing received.

On immitracker, I noticed quite slow moving so I did not check again. Then the next thing I see is the grant.

Keeping you in my prayers.
