Hi everybody,

I am a Mechanical Engineer with Western Australia State Sponsorship (475 subclass). My case has been lodged on 25th of Feb. Since then I'm still waiting. upon immigration site, CO allocation should be done within 4 weeks from lodgement; however, my agent says it could be extended. So, is it routine for 475 visas with fairly high priority as well as DIAC case process getting faster due to July 2012? Is it possible to it takes the maximum time of 7 months has been mentioned in immi site? My whole concern is my wife's IELTS that will be expired on 30th of July.

Cheers.

Yesterday, it was 32nd day of my application lodgement and there was an update on evisa system indicating 'Application further processing'. Did u apply online or on paper? And what did the CO asked you about when he first contacted you?

Hi,

I've applied online with an migration company. my agent informs me whenever it's neccessasry. after allocation they told me to prepare pay slips and insurance certificate of my jobs. however, I don't know the officer wants them or agent do this regarding to more safety.
