I'm an Indian citizen working in Singapore. My TSS 482 Visa (Medium term) application filed by Fragomen on Dec 8th, 2021 and health clearance done on 18th Dec, 2021.Role is 261313 - Software Engineer. I can see the status of the application as "Received". Anyone has any idea by when I can expect the approval? Anyone's application filed around the same time as mine? Please share your experience.

I can see that in the Global visa processing time, 25% processed in 22 days. I was expecting my application to be processed in that timeline because I've submitted all the documentation including PCC and English Medium certificates from my educational institutions. Not sure if I can rely on the published timelines for an estimate. One of my friend who had the same application filed in sometime in September or October 2021 got approval within 2 days after health clearance! That was quite fast.

I'm awaiting mine, anyone has any related info please help to share.

The thumb rule is that bigger the company, faster is the processing
As the company has engaged fragomen, I can presume they are big
Ask the hr to shoot off a letter to DHA saying that their work is suffering without you
You will find that within a couple of days you will get the grant
Cheers

Thanks for the reply. Yes they have engaged Fragomen but it's not really a big company. It's basically like a consulting company that outsources it's employees to big companies like Infosys, Accenture, Wipro etc

I will check with the HR anyways to send the email as you suggested.

I understand that there was year end shutdown between Dec 25- Jan 7. Probably DHA officers didn't work then, so those 2 weeks you need to subtract from overall time in my view. Before my approval, when I checked with my Fragomen case officer, he said approvals were taking anywhere between 2 to 4 months so I believe there's nothing to worry. Just as we did, ask your HR to shoot an email to DHA.

My TSS 482 Visa (Medium term) application filed on Dec 8th, 2021.I can see the status of the application as "Received" in the immi portal. Anyone has any idea by when I can expect "Organize health examination" option will enable in "Health Assessment" tab in immigration portal? Right now it's mentioned as "Required examinations not yet determined " in the health assessment tab.

Anyone's application filed around the same time as mine? Please share your experience.

Any idea what is the current processing time for non PMSOL for offshore?
482 processing time totally depends on how powerful your sponsor is
If the sponsor is a big company, the moment they write that their work is suffering without the applicant, wheels start moving
Cheers

To my knowledge, health examinations will be determined based on health questionnaire you submit. This needs to be done after you get the eMedical referral letter after lodging the application. For me, my Fragomen case officer sent the referral letter to me the next day application was lodged, instructing me to complete the questionnaire and then schedule the medical checkup. Below are the steps outlined by my Fragomen officer.

  1. Click on https://www.emedical.immi.gov.au/eMedUI/eMedicalClient
  2. Complete your personal details. See the attached referral letters for your HAP ID numbers – password to follow.
  3. Once you have logged in, you will be asked a range of questions about your medical history. Complete the questions and read the declaration.
  4. Once you have agreed to the declaration, click 'submit'.
  5. You will then receive an eMedical Referral letter.
  6. Click on the following link to arrange your appointment with an approved physician in your country of residence: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/contact-us/offices-and-locations/offices-outside-australia
  7. Attend the appointment taking the eMedical referral letter along with your passport for identification.
  8. Let me know when the checks have been completed. The results will be sent electronically to the case officer assessing your applications.
