Since our thread on EOIs managed to get pretty much everyone from EOI to visa invite stage, I thought we can move on to a list of everyone still waiting for visa approval. Here are the people I know of from that thread, but anyone else waiting for approval, feel free to add your names to the list

Congrats @Duggen - wonderful news! What's next, do you have dates planned?

 

And thanks for the updated tables, it helps to have everything split out like for like. I've added @Tynamite on the 489 list.

It does look like the timelines on 189 visas are coming down - days to CO contact was sitting at 140+ for a while and now down to under 110, which is great. 190s are going up still, the two types will probably meet in the middle sometime.

Na, I have already been here for a couple of years on a 457 visa. It is great to finally make things permanent and can now start looking at buying property etc.

@speechless if I may ask.. What is your "first entry date", and how does it relate to your medical and Police clearance dates?

 

Thanks

It should be one year after whichever of the medical or police clearance came first.

Thank you @ChrisH. I was hoping that they would be considerate when the dates are very close to the grant date with some sort of extension. As it stands we will have more or less two months to organize all that we have to, seeing that our police clearance and medicals was done in Feb 2018 when we submitted our application. That is if we get the grant soon. It is too late for us now to move to Aus (before the date of first entry) if we get the grant and we will be doing an activation trip only and then start planning the permanent move. Nervous much, as it is quite expensive to do a activation trip during December, but I guess having a visa approved is better than the timing of it.

This is why it is no longer a good idea to front load the application by submitting everything in one go. Too late for your situation I know but worth saying for the benefit of others who read this and are still to put in their application.

@Lienno My date of entry is no later than 14 March 2019

My medicals were done on 14 March 2018, and police clearance is dated 6 April 2018.

I'm hoping to go activate my visa next month (Nov 2018) and only move there in Sept/Oct 2019

If I can give you some advice, I've never heard anybody here say they wished they stayed in South Africa just a little longer.  In fact everybody says they should have done it sooner.  2 months is more than enough time to make the move, it will be hectic but worth it in the end.  We initially booked an activation trip and changed it to a one way trip when the time got closer.

I would say you have 3 options:

 

1. Redo the PCC and medicals now, and upload the results to your application - if you get that done before the CO looks at your application, you can still get a grant with longer activation time, but given your timelines there's a decent chance you hear pretty soon so this option may not be realistic. However there is also a risk that the CO only gets back to you in Feb at which point they may request an updated PCC and medical anyway, so you'll have to weigh your options on this one.

2. Book flights for some time in Jan-Feb for activation, it will be cheaper than flying in Dec, and then do the permanent move a bit later.

3. Make sure everything is in order and just move as soon as the visas come through.

 

We did nr 3 - our flights out of SA were exactly a month after we received our visas, but our house was already sold and everything was ready. We were about to start looking for temp accommodation while we wait for the visas when we heard the news, so ended up just booking flights instead. So it is possible, it's a mad rush but I'm actually glad we did it this way because long drawn-out goodbyes are super hard.

@Lienno I think it’s very doable if you have sold your property etc.  It’s undoubtedly a mad rush and you are not alone.  So many people have done it and have made it happen.  In hindsight I think if we had less time to get ourselves to Australia then we would have been more proactive from the start.  We tend to drag our heels and then rush around at the end which is the same scenario should we have a month or two to move across.  And as @Tntaglia said it’s less painful with the goodbyes.  You can do this buddy, your goalpost has just moved forward, it’s a whirlwind and adrenaline rush you would get over . Best wishes

Thank you @ChrisH, @March2 and @Tntaglia for your responses and words of encouragement! 

I read on another forum that we can write to DIBP requesting a facilitation letter that basically waives the Initial Entry Date condition from the VISA if they agree that the Initial Entry Date is too close to the grant date to have reasonable chance of arranging either a LSD trip or permanent move. *I'm still thinking about this option as I would not like to interfere with the process and cause any further delays, but don't want to completely discard it as it might just save us a large chunk of cash.
