    got our grant today. thanks to pinoyau! this had been my constant source of info all throughout the application process.

    brief timeline: lodged on 30 June for visa 189 for myself and family of 3, CO allocated on 22 Sep, grant received 1 Oct.

    in my case i had to call them up today for follow up after sending all the docs requested, though they had been front loaded already. it seems like system has some glitch according to the DIBP support i contacted, as they can't sometimes see all the docs. in short, she verified on the spot that all docs are in place then after 30 mins i received the grant email. for those in similar case (already CO allocated and front loaded docs), it may be good idea to call up to check on status.

    i also noticed that a lot of SG folks are going to AU already. i guess we all share the same sentiments about life here in SG is now :)

    cheers and thanks again!

    Hello, meron po bang CPA who graduated from saint louis college san fernando na nag-apply ng PR for australia? I'm just curious if the assessing body (CPA Australia) accepts the course outline from the school kasi hindi sya detailed eh. brief description of the subjects lang ang binibigay ng school. Thanks for the input!
