    @BMM03 - Oo nga, yung mga May at 1st/2nd week of June applicants, mabilis yung pag-grant. Pero pag-patak yata ng 3rd/4th week of June onwards, mas bumagal na. Tina-track ko rin sa kabilang forum, mabagal nga talaga lalo na sa job code namin (261313) kasi maraming applicants rin.

    @retake @BMM03 I think kasi during that time e nakahold yung 190 applications kasi halos puno na slots before mag reset nung July, kaya din madaming 189s na na-grant that time. And since (in my understanding of this link: https://www.immi.gov.au/about/charters/client-services-charter/visas/8.0.htm) higher priority si 190 kay 189 at madaming backlogs, medyo tumatagal ang 189 grants.

    Dibale konting tiis pa at malapit na yan :)

    @kenshusei - oo nga pre, thanks sa encouragement. Same kasi tayo ng job code (261313) at less than a month ay may CO ka na at less than 2 months ay granted na. Yung sa 190 backlogs nga talaga yung reason.

    By the way, kailan ka punta Down Under?

    @kenshusei - alright! thanks ulit! Sa Sydney ang balak ko munang mag-hanap ng work. Kung mabigay na sana yung grant this month eh by October, balak ko nang umalis agad. Kaso, ang inaalala ko yung Job market kapag "ber" months sa Australia. Sabi raw nila, medyo freeze ang hiring.

    @retake hi... Co requested for Singapore PCC..... Which is nakapag-apply na ako offshore, kaya nga lng di ko pa alam kung magkakaproblema kc i just took my chance to send the application without waiting for CO's letter of request. Nung nareceive ko email ni CO, included sa attachment ang Sg COC Letter of request niya... Hindi ko alam if i made the right move... Sana lng walang maging problema..
    For the info of everyone-di pa kami nag-front load ng form 80 before pero ready na just in case requested... Di naman niya ni-request... I'm not sure whether to upload it anyway...
    Mukhang umuusad na processing ulit... Hope magkakaroon na ng CO and soon... the golden email sa lahat ng waiting. Keep the faith..God bless..
