Hi,

I have to withdraw my 186 visa as the date of skill assessment is later than the submission date. This is a new policy updated in Dec 2016 and I submitted in Jan 2017.
However, the company nomination passed, I assume I have to withdraw current one and resubmit it again. Does anyone know how long it will take? Will it take 6 months again?

Regards,
Joey

The requirement for the skills assessment to be valid at time of application has been in place long before December 2016 so it's not new. If the employer's nomination was approved more than 6 months ago, I believe they will need to resubmit their nomination. At the moment, 186 nominations and applications are taking 9-12 months although some are taking longer.
