This just in from the Department to the MIA. I think it presents a relatively disappointing perspective that there are not large numbers of Category 5 visa grants anticipated in the current program year (to 30 June) but that those most likely to be granted are those where health and character tests have been requested by a case officer:


Processing of some State sponsored non-CSL GSM applications

There have recently been reports and speculation about the processing of some State sponsored non- Critical Skills List (CSL) General Skilled Migration (GSM) applications.

These are the Tier (or Category) 5 applications: that is, applications from people who are nominated by a State/Territory government and whose nominated occupation is not listed on the (CSL).

In order to provide realistic expectations for your clients, the MIA has been discussing the matter with DIAC to obtain an accurate statement of what is happening.

DIAC has today provided the MIA with the following statement:

“The Department is processing applications according to Ministerial Direction No. 42 - Order of consideration - certain Skilled Migration visas. The Department anticipates that a small number of State sponsored non-CSL applications will be finalised this program year. Finalisations will focus on applications where health and character checks have been requested by the case officer.”

Cheers,

George Lombard

Thanks George, for the information which has been perhaps the greatest news for all those in Cat 5.

Does this means that those who have front loaded health and character will not be considered.

Hi All,

From all the current info. available, would anybody like to hazard a guess on how long it could be for a 176 SS application lodged in October 2009 to be assessed for someone with a profession? I am expecting a long wait, but wondered if anyone had a vague clue?

Thanks

Speculation is that these will be the oldest applications in the queue, that had medicals and police clearances done and all matters addressed, just no grant made before priorities changed.

Further speculation is that these will be ASCO 1-3 only, ie no trades, as a concession to unions.
Thank you so much for this information...you never know how happy you have made a lot of people mmmmmwah

Milano - on the basis of George's post I think you could well be in the 3,500 as you are SS and were asked by CO to go for medicals and checks.

I think the people that went for medicals and checks but were not actually asked might be outside the lucky group.

We are in the same boat as you, except we applied in Oct '08. For us it looks like at least 2012. So as you applied 1 year later some time after that!

Well, I hope that I will be on the list.
I applied on 18.03.2009 and got SS from WA on 18.07.2009.
The CO asked for medicals and PCC on 17.08.2009. On 21.09.2009 medicals was finalized.
Now, I still waiting ...

A lot of luck for all of you that are in the same boat like me ...
