Default ACS silence

hello


I sent my ACS application on the 23rd Feb - Royal Mail Swift Air and Registered. Should I be getting an acknowledgement from anyone?

Also what are the current time frames for receipt of approval?

Ta

Dave

Hi Dave,

The current ACS waiting time is 8-10 weeks. We have already had some approvals for
applications lodged in January, but a lot depends on your immigration officer and the
assessor. The assessors, in particular, are quite variable in their through put, as
they are mostly external.

The reason for the current slow processing is the large number of Australian
university graduates (December is normally the end of the academic year here) who are
seeking skills assessments immediately. Things should be back to normal by April, but
there will be another, smaller, surge in July. So we normally recommend to overseas
applicants that they plan to lodge their ACS applications between April and July, and
September and November.

In the case of ACS, which is quite open about its processing time, you may not
need to go to the webappcabaret processing time matrix. It's simple enough to ask
them by email.

Cheers

Dear Dave,

Same story here: We've sent our application (from the UK) before Christmas, the
credit card was debited the 8th of January, we received our (positive, yes!) answer
the 4th of March.

Regards, Birgit
