Hi all,
My application is being processed by the London office as IT, I was asked for my medicals and handed them in in late September, and that's the last I have heard.

Speaking to my agent she seems to think that the quota has been reached for this year. I was wondering if anyone else has heard or experienced the same.

Cheers

Geoff, I believe quota has been reached in Italy too.

My application (subclass 136s) is at the final stage but DIMIA manager in Rome - a
very efficient and kind person , like the rest of her staff - said she was unable to
predict when the visa will be effectively granted , because of the strong global
pressure on that visa category.

Although I wasn't explicitely told of any quota or cap , the only reason I can think
of to explain this announced delay is that the office ran out of visa which, as far
as I believe, are distributed on a worldwide basis.

In other words, visa caps might have been reached everywhere, and I believe this NG
will be filled up with questions like yours (and mine) very soon

Let's wait and see.

Cheers

Francesco

Same situation with DIMA in Berlin. It seems that even IT fast-track doesn't help. I
lodged my application on the 01/Aug/2001 and it apparently looks pretty bad for this
(immigration) year - June 2001 to July 2002.

I find this quite odd as we handed in our medicals and police certificates in early November and received our PR 136 visa late November. We were applying as IT-Skilled through the London office. Maybe it makes a difference what team you're allocated, we were with skilled team 2.

all... but that was last year.

Just found your post, here's a post I made on 15 Dec 01 Steve

Hi All....

I'm an American and sent my application for immigration to the Washington DC embassy
in early April 2001. The application was a skilled independent for
IT. As I understood it, IT applications were to take priority and my job catagory
was on the MODL. Well, last week I received notice that my application has been
approved, but unfortunately the Washington office is out of visas for my
classification. They will receive some more at the start of their financial year
(July or August).

1. There were no difficulties with my application, why did it take 9 months?

2. Has anyone else received notice that Washington is out of visas?

3. Should I reapply at the Adelaide office? It appears to only take 4 months to get
an application through there.

4. An immigration attorney assured me that there wouldn't be an issue of running out
of their quota of visas as I was lodging my application close to the end of one
financial year, so I would be first in queue when the new batch arrived. Does
anyone of knowledge know if this should have been the case?

I sent an email to the Adelaide office asking if it would be prudent to reapply there
and received back a standard email that explained lengths of time for processing, and
never received an answer to any of my questions.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can direct me down a less curvy path.

Steve

we sent our medicals on 2 October and were granted a visa on 13 Dec. We applied IT
skilled at the london office. Think you ought to chase up your agent again.

Hi All,

I am from Bangkok, Thailand. Just call embassy yesterday. The officer said that they
are now pausing to issue PR visa due to half of 2002 visas (worldwide) were already
be granted. The situation cannot be predicted. Further processing will be resumed in
Feb or Mar.

Right now, my application is already pass 6 months processing period. Officer asked
me when my application be lodged and whether I am IT ... yes I am. Thus, she told me
to call her again in middle of Jan to check.

Good Luck for all Boom
