Default Current Processing Times (Part Two)

CURRENT PROCESSING TIMES AS OF 11th MARCH 2008

From [email protected] :

This is an automated e-mail response from the Adelaide Skilled Processing
Centre (ASPC) to provide general information about application processing.

If you send documents or an enquiry to this mailbox you will need to resend
your email to the correct departmental address.

If the application has been allocated to a case officer then you will have
been provided with specific contact information. Alternatively you can
refer to the department's website at:
http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/visa...fessionals.htm
for information on contacting or sending documents to the Adelaide Skilled
Processing Centre.

Information on skilled migration is available from the Department's website
at http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...tion/index.htm

Updates

Capital Investment

As of 3 December 2007 all State/Territory Treasury Corporations who were
gazetted to accept designated securities have withdrawn this facility.
Consequently it is no longer possible to lodge a deposit with any of the
State/Territory Treasury Corporations in order to claim bonus points.

The department is investigating the implications this will have on affected
applications and as soon as any further information comes to hand relating
to this matter applicants will be contacted directly by their case officer.
Applicants not yet allocated a case officer can continue to check this
email for updates and information will be added to the department’s website
when available.

United Kingdom police clearances

Police certificates are now being issued by the Association of Chief Police
Officers (ACPO) and cover applicants who have lived or currently reside in
England, Wales, Scotland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and Northern
Ireland.

Application forms and guidance on how to apply for the police certificates
for residents and non-residents can be located online at www.acpo.police.uk

Currently, the department will also continue to accept the outcome of a
Subject Access Request made under the Data Protection Act 1998 for each
relevant UK jurisdiction.


Communicating with this office

Information on making telephone or email enquiries to the ASPC is located
at http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/visa...fessionals.htm

This system has been established to provide consistent and efficient
responses to email enquiries and you are requested not to send enquiries to
individual departmental officers regarding an application unless
specifically requested to do so.

Please note that the departmental officers who email out the
acknowledgement letters are not able to respond to enquiries sent to their
individual email addresses.

RECEIPTING AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF APPLICATIONS
The ASPC is currently receipting new applications within service standards.
Once an application has been receipted it undergoes validity checking and
an acknowledgement letter with client information and a receipt will be
sent. If an application is determined to be invalid documents will be
returned and a refund of the visa application charge arranged.

As of 11 March 2008 the ASPC Admin Section is processing applications as
follows:

Onshore Applications: receipting and acknowledging applications received on
6 March 2008.

Offshore Applications received after 1 September 2007: receipting and
acknowledging applications received on 6 March 2008.

Offshore Applications received prior to 1 September 2007:
All applications with a valid payment have now been receipted. The ASPC is
acknowledging offshore applications received on 27 August 2007.

Please note that any delay in acknowledging an application does not affect
the date on which a valid application is recorded as having been received
and does not delay processing of the application.

Once an application has been acknowledged it will be allocated to a case
officer for further assessment as soon as possible, however, the ASPC
receives a large number of applications and you will not be contacted
immediately.

I'm not sure that it updates as often as it used to. It was regular as clockwork a few months back. Now it can vary from 1-2 weeks b4 they update it

It has been getting updated weekly for the last few weeks but sometimes not until Wednesday - we'll have to wait another day. Just think though, if they aren't updating the email, maybe they're processing visa applications
