Hi Guys,

I am curious to know how much more time it will take to receive Visa. I have been waiting for so long. :crazy:

ANZSCO Code - 261313 (Software Engineer)
ACS done - 7 March 2016
PTE done - 19 July 2016
EOI lodged (with 60 + 5 points) - 26 July 2016 (190 - Victoria)
Invitation received - 24 Nov 2016
Fee Paid/Application Submitted - 20 Jan 2017
PCC/Health assessment - 28 Feb 2017


Can anybody fall under this ANZSCO code and received/waiting for VISA? Please reply to this thread. :gossip:

Thank you!:)

There is no correlation between the anzsco and the grant, so you better look at nationality, visa subclass, and lodgement date as well as CO contact for similarities

Hi Rajat,

Thanks for your reply.

At the time of application submission, I did not have the desired credit limit while payment. Hence, it took time to submit the application. Moreover, application was submitted before the date of expiration of invitation.

Second, post 20 Jan, I received mail from department to submit PCC and health assessments and later I uploaded the required documents.

Can we contact the department mentioning the application details?
I assumed, we should not as per:
You will not receive a further reply for:
- Questions about the status of your visa application
- Confirmation that documents have been received
- Enquiries that do not relate to a current GSM visa application, or
- Questions addressed by this automatic response

To be precise post 20 Jan,

Department asked for additional documents: 31 Jan 2017
Documents uploaded and IP clicked: 28 Feb 2017
Department asked for my marriage certificate - 31 Mar 2017 ( that i think, missed by mistake)
Marriage certificate uploaded and respond to department - 31 Mar 2017

Post these, there is no communication.

You can in theory give them a call, however, you will most likely hear generic response as your application is being looked at and undergoing standard checks.

the 14 days period they give you is to respond to the invitation with some documents and then they give you 60 days to apply with the visa fees.

My EOI to Vic was rejected in Feb 2017 ..under 65 points. No rationale provided. Can I reapply ? Are my agents faltering on anything ? I will get 8 yrs of the total 15 yrs submitted in Dec 2017, what shud I do ?
There is no fees for applying to VIC
There is a wait of 6 months for reapplying which you have passed
You can try to improve your CV as apparently a lot of weightage is given for it by VIC
You can get it written professionally through RESUME writers and may help

Why you were rejected will never be disclosed

So there is no harm in applying
Maybe you will get lucky this time

I never had the need for engaging them so no idea

Just google and choose
But there is a wide range of fees

Whether you will need to go for assessment again or not will depend on your circumstances

Go through my thread in the ACS section
