      Oh good old Mildura, I lived there for a while a few years back fruit picking, I lived in Redcliffs. In the acknowledgment that they received my application it did say that the case officer would contact me once one has been allocated to me, although I have heard of people not knowing they had one till they were told the visa was granted! I'll keep you posted when I hear something. My app is lodged at Paramatta which has the biggest backlog at present it would seem, Melbourne are supposed to be pretty good, my agent said she has had some be turned around very quickly (weeks rather than months) there. As far as I can gather if the nomination has been approved at immi then you have a CO and the same case officer should deal with the 3rd stage. Good luck too and keep us all informed with your progress!

      RSMS 119- RCB submitted 12.5.10, RCB approved 21.6.10, Nomination & App posted to Paramatta (front loaded- Meds and PC's) 21.6.10, Receipt of arrival 23.6.10. Form 80 requested 3.11.10

      Hmm.. thats not a really good news as my contract has already started and the remaining period until termination is less than 2 years but on paper its a 2 years contract.
      Theres three scenarios how this 2 years contract affect everything.
      2 years starts after the date of lodgement of all documents like Employer Sponsorship and PR
      2 years starts after the date of approval (which might take 6 months)
      2 years contract regardless of above options.

      If its the first 2 options, I'm pretty screwed though, as getting a extension and changing of the contract is really troublesome and I've already commenced my work which is on 2 years contract.
      Does your contract have a specified start and end date? If not you may find that they won't question it, but maybe it is worth chatting to a migration agent, or getting them to reword the contract so it does not specify and end date but says 'at least two years'.

      Good luck!

      hi sunshinefreedom,

      it has a commencement date and a 2 years term but doesnt state the end date. some agents say it might be after approval,but i think those apply to offshore. I'm onshore but dont have a qualifying visa so I have to apply for off-shore which is a stupid thing to begin with, onshore applying offshore... really stupid mechanism that immigration system has in place.. as im trapped in one of the bridging visa limbos. I'm currently onshore serving through my contract.. not much info anywhere relating to this 2 years contract stuff.

      And a termination clause at any time, no probation period though.. does it help or makes matter worst? lol...

      Hi there

      Thanks for your interest. Applications submitted by my MIA who says huge backlog at Paramatta, and to be patient. Fingers and everything else crossed that there will be some positive news soon.

      Well come Sunday i need a midwives letter to fly , then i have 6 weeks after that until i cant fly atall.

      If bubs arrives in uk we will then have a whole new kerfuffel of adding him to the visa, obtaining a passport getting medicals etc.

      If we have recieved the visa before he arrives but are still in the uk i think thats worse, as i dont think he can be added to our visa after its been granted. and will have to have his own seperate child visa which will cost another $1735. im actually not sure how it works will need to investigate further.

      Everything is getting a bit close for comfort now

      Hmm, I think I would be inclinded to ask them to extend it to say for example 'up to three years' or any similar statement which would cover you for two years from receipt of a visa grant. On the other hand, you may find the current one will be fine, I guess it depends if you want to risk a possible refusal on such a simple thing. Sorry I can't give you a definate answer, but I know I would have a chat to HR rather then risk it... good luck and keep us all posted.

      I have just read in another forum that they have recieved this email from there Migration agents-
      fingers crossed guys!

      From the Director of program delivery DIAC Subject: Re-distribution of cases within the ENS/RSMS network

      For some time the application rate for Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) and Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) has been to placing pressure on the Department's processing centres. In particular, as you are aware a large on-hand caseload has developed in the Parramatta (this is where i am at) processing centre.

      We have been working on a new processing model which we believe will be sustainable in our current environment. We believe it is important that this new processing model contains incentives for agents to continue to lodge complete applications. I will be writing to you again soon to invite you to participate in the process we propose to run to identify and reward (in a processing time frame sense) decision ready applications (mine is decision ready).

      The main purpose of this letter is to advise you of the potential for ENS/RSMS cases you might have with us in the Parramatta office to be moved within the processing network.

      The intention of this re-distribution of cases is to provide a consistent service with respect to processing time frames for ENS/RSMS applicants. We therefore will be moving cases involving 1700 persons out of Parramatta to Perth and Melbourne.

      We wish to make the decision around the movement of cases as straight forward as possible, for reasons of cost. So the intention is that the movement of cases will be random and spread over the entire queue, i.e. not one particular month or client/agent caseload.

      As these cases are currently sitting unallocated in Parramatta's queue, it is anticipated that you will become aware of a cases movement when it is allocated to a case officer in Perth or Melbourne and they write to you advising that they are the case officer.

      Thank-you for your continued support.
