1. Processing is about 2-2½ months at Sydney, so it should be soon. Make sure that your spam file doesn't get it.

Lots of people whose applications were received mid/late April still haven't received the 120 day email either, so no panic.

you hear soon, although I don't think it'll be for a couple of weeks going on recent timelines.

Actually it should speed up, since it will take a while for most FSW1 to get their applications together so they can submit a complete application to Sydney. That should leave Sydney time to "clean up " a lot of the pre 26/06/10 applications.

You say your forms was received in May but have they actually taken payment or accepted payment? (ie cashed banker's draft etc) Payment was taken end of June and we received 120 letter 21 days later

Hi guys,

Thanks for getting back to my query so soon. It's very strange that payment was taken from alot of people very early in their application to Sydney but as yet our payment has not been taken off my CC??

It will be 12 weeks next Thursday since our forms were received by CIC. (So very worried that there is a problem with our forms )

Wish us luck..........

Hi Bal

I felt the same way about my application and it arrived at Sydney about 3 weeks before yours, I'd give it a few more weeks before worrying that there are major issues.

Keep your chin up, fingers crossed you'll hear soon.

Hi Scents60,

I really appreciate the support, we will try not to worry and be more patient

keep us posted because your application looks like a close timeline, will be
a good indicator to follow your progress along side ours, if that makes sense

Regards

Bal

Hi Gareth,

I have applied under FSW Cat 1 as a Crane Operator, very glad to hear from someone who is on the same timeline!

Yes you're right 12 weeks this Friday so hopefully we will get a response from CIC either this week or next.

Been advised from our Agent to be patient as there are delays at processing applications but I just want to get onto the next phase now!!!

Keep me posted, especially if you hear from CIC about your case.

Good Luck mate..............
