South African Case Load

If your enquiry relates to a 'points test' application lodged in Pretoria
before 01/11/01, you should be aware that this case load has arrived in
Adelaide.

Officers are currently looking at this case load during 2002, however it
may be some time before all cases receive an initial assessment by the
Adelaide office. In order to ensure that any delays are minimised you
should refrain from making general enquiries as this will only have the
effect of increasing processing time frames.

Thank you
ASPC
