    MY VISA TIMELINE

    March 16 - lodged my Subclass 456 application at VIA
    March 23 - received a notice through email for medical exam
    March 26 - complied with the medical exam requirements
    May 9 - health clearance from Global Health in Australia was received by the embassy (took a while though due to health declaration)
    May 14 - received my visa grant
    - left for Melbourne, Australia
    May 15 - arrived in Melbourne, Australia safe and sound

    *** It did take long for my visa to arrive but i am still grateful despite the delay. I learned a lot of values from this experience. My advice to everybody is to call DIAC from time to time to follow up your application (Call hours: 2pm - 4pm Mondays to Thursdays only). DIAC is the one assessing the documents and giving the Visa Grant. VIA is the center that forwards your application to DIAC as well as the one that sends out Visa Grants from DIAC to respective applicants.

    God bless to all those who are waiting for their visas to arrive. Just continue praying!

    Hi molly_molly,

    As far as I know the case officer assigned to you will communicate with you if he/she will be sending your medical notice thru e-mail. On the other hand, If you get your medical notice by courier your case officer will only send you a message if there is a problem with your documents or medical. But if you haven't received any info from the immig, you just have to be patient and wait for the allotted time frame in processing your visa

    Hi guys! Just got my visa today . Here's my time line for future reference. I applied for Visitor Visa SC 600.

    April 26 - I've lodged my visa VIA
    April 29 - I received an sms that my application was received by the embassy
    May 9 - I received an email notice to do my medicals (around noon-time)
    May 10 - I did my medicals at St. Luke's Global (awesome accommodating staffs)
    May 15 - My medicals were forwarded to embassy (delayed because of weekends and election)
    May 17 - I got my Visa Grand via email


    Really helps if you follow-up them continuously.

    Good luck everyone!

    Hello guys,

    Im planning to migrate to AUS. Im a RN. My only experience is being a CI for 15 months. My IELTS expired last year so I have to take it again next month. Im planning to apply for a student visa sc 573. In which I have to take a 2 year bachelor of nursing course.

    Anyone went this way? I know it costs alot but I think it's the best option. Maybe you guys have any suggestions/advices/comments, I would surely appreciate it.

    Thank you

    I don't think it's the best option. The only "benefit" you will get from this is being able to work part-time while studying (or maybe added points for immigration). But i would like to point out that doing this 2-year nursing program will only cost you more in the long run, not to mention the fact that by the time you graduate, the employment and immigration atmosphere will be very different - in a tighter way. all those who will undergo the 3-month BP will be able to search for jobs a much earlier than you. and because hundreds (if not thousands) are taking this BP, plus Australia's own nursing grad, surely you will miss out a lot on employment prospects. so think about it.
