"How complicated is your application? We applied for 175 (just 2 of us - married couple) and applied without the use of an agent - we didn't find it that difficult and saved ourselves a fair amount in agent fees, so this is always an option! :-)"

Hi Sarah, sorry to bother you again, I received an email today with 4 pdf's, two are for medicals and character references, one is the 1071i form and the last has the title 'Request for more information for Skilled Migration'. Is this the same as you got? I'm hoping the letter 'Request for more information for Skilled Migration' just refers to the character and medicals as it does not refer to in the letter what the extra information is...

Thanks

Rich

Thanks for the reply. I got an email from DIAC about 15 minutes after I posted that comment. In it it says that only for on-shore visas you need to get the health and character checks done in 28 days, but for off-shore (which 175 comes under) I have to wait to be asked for the case officer to ask me. Phew. I guess now is the waiting game until I hear from the case officer then.
Thanks again :)

Hi Sarah, I noticed that you were asked to do your health checks and stuff in November, however, I've just submitted the online application and the checklist says that I need to get this information to them within 28 days of lodging the application.  Am I missing something or do you think the application has changed?

Thanks

Rich

Thanks for your comments.  I will be applying online, I'm just waiting for a reference from one of my previous employers then I can send off for the Skills assessment.  That should hopefully take no more than 3 months then I will send my application off.  I have already started filling out as much as I can.

Re holidays, I realised that there are date stamps on my digital holiday photos so I worked that out from them.

Re 'value in assets', I've looked through the documentation and I can't find anywhere that there is a minimum... this was on the paper application, maybe the online one is different???

Thanks for answering some of my queries :)

Rich
