Hi everyone,

I have officially withdrawn my SM 175 application from DIAC as my application date preceded IELTS result date.

We are in process of re-applying again, we have lost application fees once by being careless. This time I want to be super careful. We are looking for any and all possible suggestions from members here that I should look/ verify for before I hit the application submit button.

Looking forward for your suggestions and advises..

Regards,

Yes anj, they said, there is no leeway to english requirement at the time of application .. if your application date is before IELTS test result date, then your application will be rejected, migration rules are clear bla bla... They suggested, either to withdraw this application and re apply online again or re-apply a fresh paper application leaving the current one... as their system would not allow 2 online applications.. If we withdraw our application, there may be a chance of discretionary refund (we are still to hear something on that) .

Hi Mr.India,
Didn't you apply when you got SMS/email of your IELTS results saying that "you passed". So your report date will be when your result is announced rather than when TRF physical copy reaches your address (That takes 2 weeks normally)..


So logically you applied after IELTS results date.

Initially I also thought of the same.. but unfortunately, DIAC runs on rules, which says, the date printed on your TRF i.e. 14 days after your test date will be taken as your result date, they don't know that ur results get published a couple of days before on website.

Your official result date is the result printed on TRF..

It was sad for us, but we are not leaving this there.. We are comming back again with new application.. and probably with better contigency plans..

Please find the following:

1- Ensure that your name is written correct on every single document.
2- Experience certificates should include your duties, number of hours per week and salary, header and footer and correct dates format.
3- Try to apply early enough for PCC (you will have 28 days after they ask for it) , Indians always suffer from this issue it takes too long.
4- Renew your current passport if possible and if its near to expire (1 year) and ensure that they didn't do any mistake in your name spelling. (So you can avoid carrying 2 passports).
5- Ensure that the doctor sent the medicals.
6- Ensure that the agent sent out the other documents (Many of them forget, and sometimes mix your case with other customers).

Good Luck,

Thanks Pankaj, aarav and Steafo, I have made a note of your suggestions.. till now, I have one concern, let me ask here...

My marriage certificate is in hindi, I got it translated throught a local translation office and attested by indian enbassy. Do I need to provide profile of my translator, with his language translation skills (I doubt that he will give me) Any one managed to get birth cert, marriage cert translated acceptable by DIAC, please respond.

I dont think so, because my lawyer has translated the cert for me and seems they accepted it.

Please use a migration agent.they will sort out all issues and you dont have to have these kind of losses.

And keep following up, not all agents concentrate well, and sometimes they delay things.

Good Luck.
