Just wondered if anyone knows much about the recent changes happening to the visa process. My husband is waiting for his practical assessment for plumbing and the date was originally Feb but has now moved to June. I wondered if anyone knew why this had changed and how long after that does it take to get the applicaiton lodged ? I think everything is a little unknown at present due to the changes but is anyone aware of any real timeframe from now on, ie how long is the wait from time of application to being granted the visa? Subclass 175 skilled visa is the one we are applying for. Our agent is great but i just wanted to know if anyone else was in a similar position. I have three children and the eldest is 13 and i really wanted to be making a move before her final year exams in two years. I dont know now if this is likely or not. We want to move to Brisbane.
