Default Former Current Processing Times (continued)

RECEIPTING AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF APPLICATIONS

Adelaide Skilled Processing Centre 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 30 September 2008 the ASPC Administration Section is processing
applications as follows:

Onshore Applications: receipting and acknowledging paper based applications
received on 29 September 2008.

Offshore Applications: receipting and acknowledging applications received
on 29 September 2008.

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

That's the general theory (I think) but we've seen it changed twice in one day before!

If you remember, during May-June this year, they did not update it for over a month. So, I guess the frequency of weekly updates is as unpredictable as visa processing timeline itself.

The 175/176 didn't change for nearly 6 months at one point!

They do update it every week though in that they change the date. I wonder if someone gets paid for that....
