For my case, it took ACS around 8 weeks to decide to nominate me. ACS sent me a link to make a payment of AUD$ 500. Form 1000 was issued following day after I made the payment. Hope this helps.
Could you please brief about your profile.

If you have a reentry and you can travel to Saudi means you can get a PCC from KSA

As one cannot take Saudi PCC from overseas so the requirement is final exit
I echo the same, if you have reentry, means your resident card is valid and in that case you should visit Saudi Arabia and get PCC.

Hello All,

I am planning on applying for GTI visa. I have a query, kindly guide me:
My expertise is in CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) simulations in Car and Wind energy sector. I was trying for the Energy sector, however someone guided me that since I am into simulations I should apply for Advanced manufacturing. I am confused which sector to choose. Or should I approach an agent to do the process for me? will that be helpful.

Hi all, we are waiting the police check result sending from Australia to Vietnam. It took so much time. we lodged for it from 11 of May and we've received email informing that they are sending the result by post but we don't know when we can get it (they didn't send the scan by email). Has any one receving the police check from Australia? how long does it take? please give me som information. Many thanks!
When I applied for mine offshore they said 10-20 business days for international post. Another option is to get it posted to someone in Australia, who can then scan it and send it to you.

UID received: 8 Jun 2021 (no RFI). Short time as I expected (I expected 4 months)!
Offshore
Medtech
PhD (within 3 years, university ranking top 30 worldwide)
salary<<requirement
10 top papers
40 review experiences
1 national level research grant (my grant, I am the only leader, not PI's grant)
<30 years old
4 recommendation letters from the specialists in the same research field wordwide
several scholarships, not important, as scholarships are for students, can not be used in demonstration of international reputation.
Well-written cover letter, logic is important, why your are excellent in the international level (not in your univeristy, not in your country) and attach your evidences. Make it a single PDF file.
100% DIY by myself, no other company or person helped me. Made the application materials and finished application within 3 hours in the late midnight with drinking beer.
I am going to loge the visa application. Thank you all.

My suggestion to the new comers. Basic requirements are PhD within 3 years or your salary > requirement, if not, do not waste of your time on GTI.

hi , mate , do u still hope we can get UID ? I am sooo sad now , it is really long journey , I have been thinking , if it is not ok , jusr give me a rejection so i am relief , That is long journey .
Hi, I share the same sentiment. However, I would probably wait until the end of June before losing hope. Yeah, it's been stressful, especially waiting for so long and seeing that some people with lesser qualifications received UID already. I am offshore though. Never been to Australia. However, some people got it after 8-9 months. So maybe it's still not too late. Look at this post. Ridiculous wait.

Don't lose hope at all. I think you'll definitely get it. There is no specific rule or criteria for the UID issuance. I observed it's always case basis. Also, I gather that if you can create a strong case on how you would be an asset to Australia technology sector then your chances skyrocket. The FWHIT is just one aspect, it's not the final aspect though. The immigration department/case officer is highly focused on economic recovery from the pandemic and as per my observation, if one can demonstrate their strong case for this then your profile would definitely be selected. All the best.
