Hi Tracey,

Yeah I noticed we're the only 137ers! We're going on my OH job, which is an engineer, I currently run a Starbucks, so my job's not skilled enough! Will be cool to keep tabs on each other to see when things star happening. Do you know anyone in Melbourne? We don't. We're going on a recky in June, but that will be our first visit to Oz!!!

Default Current Processing times : UPDATE

You can get current processing times by sending a blank email to [email protected]. As on 27th March, ASPC is acknowledging applications received on 8th of March. Has anyone received acknowledgment ?
I am attaching below the email I received from ASPC today.



This is an automated e-mail response from the Adelaide Skilled Processing
Centre (ASPC). Emails sent to this address will only receive this auto
response. Information and enquiries about applications must be sent to the
correct mailbox to be processed.

The information in this e-mail is updated for each Tuesday and you only
need to e-mail this mailbox once per week to obtain the most recent
information on allocation dates.

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

Health and Character Checks

Medical examinations - please note that medical forms can now be accessed
from the Department's website for all General Skilled Migration
applications. Information on health requirements and the necessary forms
can be accessed at
http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/heal...ents/index.htm

Further information for offshore applicants has been added add the bottom
of this e-mail regarding health and character checking.

Acknowledgment of Applications

The ASPC is current experiencing some delays in receipting and
acknowledging applications and regrets the inconvenience this may be
causing applicants and their representatives. Please note that these
delays do not affect the date on which a valid application is recorded as
having been received and this is the date used for processing purposes.

As of 27 March 2007 the ASPC is receipting applications received on 8 March
2007.


Processing and Allocation Information - As of 27 March 2007

Processing of an application will usually commence within seven (7) working
days of its receipt by the department. This means that an application is
receipted, acknowledged and a file number is allocated.

Once this has occurred a case officer is appointed to assess each
application as soon as possible, however, the ASPC receives a large number
of applications and you will not be contacted immediately.

Applications lodged on or before the dates shown below have been allocated
to case officers for further processing.

ONSHORE APPLICATIONS

Student/Graduate

Paper based applications: 13 December 2006 (subclass 880), 31 October
2006 (subclass 881) and 24 November 2006 (subclass 882)

Paper based applications: 1 November 2006
E-lodged (online) applications: 18 December 2006

OFFSHORE APPLICATIONS

Applications for Classes BN, BQ, BR and UZ (subclasses 134, 136, 137, 138,
139 and 496)

Priority Applications: 27 June 2006
Non-Priority Applications: 13 June 2006

Skilled Independent Regional (Provisional) (SIR VISA)

Paper based applications: 30 August 2006
E-lodged (online) applications: 01 February 2007


Notes


Onshore: means that the visa being applied for can be granted while the
applicant is in Australia.

e-lodged: applications lodged online have quicker processing times. See:
Online Services - General Skilled Migration

SIR visas: All applicants for a Skilled - Independent Regional [SIR] visa
receive priority processing.


Offshore: means that the visa being applied for can only be granted when
the applicant is outside of Australia.


If a visa application was made more than two weeks before the relevant date
shown above and you have not been contacted by a case officer please
contact the Adelaide Skilled Processing Centre from the web page
http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/visa...fessionals.htm


Applications eligible for priority processing

1. Applicants whose nominated occupation is on the Migration Occupations
in Demand List (MODL)

2. For applicants whose nominated occupation is not on the MODL,
applications for any of the following visas are given priority:

a) Skill Matching (Migrant) (Class BR) - Subclass 134 - Skill Matching
b) Skilled - Independent (Migrant) (Class BN) – Subclass 137 - Skilled -
State/Territory-nominated Independent
c) Skilled - Australian-sponsored (Migrant) (Class BQ) - Subclass 139 -
Skilled - Designated Area Sponsored
d) Skilled - Independent Regional (Provisional) (Class UX) - Subclass
495 - Skilled - Independent Regional (Provisional)
e) Skilled Designated Area-sponsored (Provisional) (Class UZ) - Subclass

- Skilled - Onshore Regional-Sponsored New Zealand Citizen
g) Skilled Australian-sponsored Overseas Student (Residence) (Class DE)
- Subclass 882 - Skilled Designated Area-sponsored Overseas Student

Eligibility for priority processing does not mean that any processing
requirements can be waived.


Offshore Applicants can now initiate Health and Character Checks before
being allocated a case officer

The inclusion of health forms on the department's website means that
applicants can reduce the time taken to finalise the application by
commencing health and character checking before their application is
allocated to a case officer, however, applicants and migration agents
should be aware that:
o Applicants are responsible for all costs associated with medical
examinations and providing police clearances;
o Health examinations and police clearances have limited validity
periods, generally for a period of 12 months;
o If clearances expire before the application is finalised they may be
requested again, and must be provided at the applicant’s cost;
o The ASPC may need to undertake other checking in respect of the
application that can delay a decision; and
o Undertaking health examinations and providing police clearances does
not guarantee an application will be successful.

Applicants and Agents can monitor which applications are currently being
allocated for assessing through this e-mail service before deciding when to
undertake health and character procedures.
If you decide to undertake these checks before being allocated a case
officer it is suggested that these checks be initiated when allocation
dates are within three months of your date of lodgement.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT:
Applicants are not obliged to undertake these checks now and may wait until
receiving a further request from the department.
If any applicant is pregnant - please contact this office for further
advice before any person included in the application commences health or
character checking.
Non-migrating family members of applicants for aSIR visa should not
undertake health and character checking unless specifically requested to do
so.

Medical Examinations

Information on health checking requirements and medical forms can be
obtained at http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/heal...ents/index.htm
Please pay careful attention to the information available on this page
including Form 1071i detailing health requirements for permanent entry to
Australia. Visa applicants in Australia must contact Health Services
Australia (HSA) to arrange a health examination.

Applicants outside of Australia must arrange their health examination with
a panel doctor and/or radiologist nominated by the Australian Government.
A list of panel doctors and radiologists is at
http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/panel-doctors/index.htm

Please note that the panel doctor is required to send all medical results
to the Local Clearance Unit in Australia and not give them to applicants or
their representatives. Information about the Local Clearance Unit
including their address is available at
http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/aust...lcu-sydney.htm

Before attending a health examination applicants need to:
1. Print off the required numbers of forms 26 and/or 160 to present to
the panel doctor and radiologist; and
2. Complete the "Office use only" box to indicate the visa class applied
for (eg subclass 136), the file reference number and / or the ICSE Request
ID number on each form.

Police Clearance Certificates

Police Clearance Certificates are required, for each member of the
applicant’s family unit aged 16 years or over, regardless of whether or not
they are migrating. Clearances are required for each country the applicant
has lived in for a cumulative total of 12 months or more in the last 10
years. Applicants should also provide an address history for any other
relevant persons who need to satisfy the character requirements as part of
this application.
For information on obtaining police clearances please refer to the Form 47P
Character Requirements available at
http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/47p.pdf


Finalising Applications

Please note that the information provided above is not about the time it
will take to process an application to completion. The time it is
expected to take to process a General Skilled Migration visa application to
completion is detailed in the department's service standards. Service
standards are specified for applications lodged with complete
documentation. Individual cases may take longer than the service standard
depending on the completeness and complexity of the case. For further
information on service standards see: service standards
