      Expression of Interest Skilled Migration Reforms

      The announcement today of these changes taking place from July next year and leading to an initial round of sponsorships in January 2013 is being clarified by DIAC in seminars being held around Australia at the end of May. Until then it's too early to speculate on just how the system will operate other than to say that it will drive more people towards employer sponsorship.

      The FAQs for the changes, impenetrable as they are, are here: http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener.../model-faq.pdf . I imagine that the model of lodging a structured CV is going to lead to many verification problems - again, the devil will be in the detail.

      And in the meantime, orderly processing of GSM applications continues - most people planning to apply should be able to lodge before the changes take effect, and after that date it will be necessary to lodge your EOI and pray.

      Cheers,

      Hi George

      Is the EIO for new applications only from July 2012 ? THE FAQ as usual are not brilliant.

      In other words are the applications already lodged including Cat 4 not required to submit an EOI in July 2012. ?

      Thanks

      The FAQs hint that applicants who lodge before the EOI rules come in will be assessed under the rules in place at the time of lodgement...

      DIAC's slow march to transparency continues. Although the new points test legislation has been released there are still too many questions on English, work experience, qualifications, and regional issues. Good luck for those who can apply for GSM now?

      Cheers
