We have recently sent email letters to certain Priority Group 3 applicants who have
lodged a General Skilled Migration (GSM) application under subclasses 175, 176, 475,
885, 886 and 487.
As indicated above, these emails were sent only to applicants whose applications:
a) are expected to be allocated to a case officer within three months of the date
of these letters; and
b) can proceed with health and character requirements without firstly being
assessed by a case officer.
If you have received this letter and have queries about these instructions, the following
Questions and Answers may be of interest.
Similarly, if you have not received this letter and your application is in Priority Group 3,
these Questions and Answers will explain why and when you may expect to be contacted
about your application.
this is part of email she received. and she also paste the article from immigration website ...
The Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Chris Bowen, has set new priority processing arrangements for certain skilled migration visas. These arrangements will give effect to the minister's announcement on 10 May 2011 that regional visas will be given the highest processing priority.
Priority processing refers to the order in which the department considers skilled migration applications. The minister is able to consider and finalise visa applications in an order of priority that the minister considers appropriate. The changes to priority processing do not change visa eligibility criteria.
The new priority processing arrangements apply to the following visas:
- Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS)
- Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS)
- certain General Skilled Migration (GSM).

Is this some sort of error or do you think they finally starting processing old application in cat 5?
