ASPC APPLICATION ALLOCATION INFORMATION

On 17 December 2008 the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship announced
changes to the way General Skilled Migration applications will be allocated
and processed. Details can be found on the DIAC website at:
http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...hats-new.htm#j

As a result of this announcement from 1 January 2009 applications for
General Skilled Migration will be strictly allocated and processed in the
following priority order:

1. Applications with a successful State & Territory Nomination
(until all applications have been allocated); and then
2. Applications where the nominated occupation is on the Critical
Skills List (until all applications have been allocated); then
3. Applications where the nominated occupation is on the Migration
Occupations in Demand List (until all applications have been allocated);
then
4. All other remaining applications

This affects all applications lodged before and after 1 January 2009, both
paper lodged or electronically lodged. Applications which were already
allocated to case officers before 1 January 2009 are un-affected and will
be processed as usual to finalisation.

date indicated below for your case officer to contact you. If you have not
been contacted after this time please lodge an enquiry about your

Applications are now being allocated as follows:

State & Territory Nominated Applications:

Once the department has received valid nomination from a state or
territory, applications will be allocated to a case officer within 10
working days.

Applications with Occupations on the Critical Skills List (CSL):

Hi All,

I have just completed the online visa application for class 175

I received my positive assessment from the ACS for skilled migration as a Java IT Programmer.

Just wondered whether anyone can give me an indication as to what other charges apart from the the $2105 visa application I will have to pay. I am going with my Wife and 2 Children

Regards,
I was advised not to do medicals just yet as you only have one year from your medicals to 'validate' your visa, and if your visa isn't approved within that year then you'll have to do your medicals again! Tony Coates is very good for advice, he's an agent on here....

I take it no-one has done their medicals or police checks yet? I'm going to enquire about where to do medicals and have all the forms ready and stuff, but I take it I'm best waiting til I'm actually asked for them? Wouldn't be the most ideal situation for the medical to expire before my CO is even allocated!!! lol

Secondary applicants aged 18 years or over who do not have functional English must pay a second instalment visa application charge.This payment will entitle secondary applicants to English language tuition in Australia to enable them to achieve functional English language ability.

Functional English is sufficient English to cope with everyday situations and some work situations.

Note: The full amount of this charge must be paid before your visa can be granted.

To avoid payment of the second instalment visa application charge, you must provide evidence that any secondary applicants 18 years or over included in the application have at least functional English.

This evidence should be provided when requested by the case officer and before the visa is granted.Level of English Evidence required

Functional
You must provide one of the following:
your IELTS TRF Number to show you have a band score of at least four and a half (4.5) based on all four components.
Important: If you are using an IELTS test to show functional English, it must be from a test sat no more than 12 months before making your application.
evidence that you have a degree, diploma or trade qualification requiring at least two (2) years of full time study or training with all instruction conducted in English
evidence that you have completed at least one (1) year of full time study in Australia towards a degree or diploma qualification with all instruction conducted in English
evidence that you have completed one of the following at an educational institution where all instruction was conducted in English:
your primary education and at least three (3) years of secondary education, or
at least five (5) years of secondary education.


There is more information to help you understand how your English language ability is assessed.

I'm doing as has been generally recommended here - waiting for the CO to ask for them. That way (on the assumption the visa is granted), we'll have the maximum period possible to take up residence without having to consider taking a trip purely for validation purposes. Also, with our sons at secondary school, my wife and I are hoping to cause the minimum disruption possible to their education by actioning the move between August and December: end of school year in UK to the beginning of the school year in Oz. The maximum period will (hopefully) provide us with the leeway to cater for that.

Regards,

Paul

Default Re: Feb 2009 Applications

Hi all,
We're currently in Brisbane on 457 visa. Our ENS 856 application was lodged last Thursday (12th Feb) at Parramatta. Unfortunately they are not accepting applications there at the moment due to 'major systems issues' or whatever that means - but they have confirmed that they'll backdate the application to when it was lodged. So hopefully we'll be a Feb application!
Our timeline is:
Came to Oz for job applications March 2007
Arrived in Oz; June 2007
Received 457: Aug 2007
Received positive skills assessment Sept 2008
Received Police checks Jan 2009
Application finally ready Feb 2009 (seems to have taken forever)

So fingers crossed and good luck everyone.

Hi All, We are February Applicants too! We applied on the 19th Feb (UK Time) and 20th Feb (Oz Time).

Real achievement for us as hubby failed the first Vetassess, by the way we are on the CSL as he is a General Electrician.

Hello everybody! I'm a Feb 09 applicant too. Submitted for a 475 three days ago. Anyone else here is on a 475 too?

Any idea how long it will normally take to get a case officer?
