Recieved email today from the casework manager, stating that the Australian government is to review the no of skilled migrants from july 2009-2010,however the opposition party in Australia are calling for immediate cut by 50,000 skilled migrants now!!
They then say we are advising that you pursue as quick a visa lodgement as soon as possible, in order to avoid any potential delays to your migration that could be caused by DIAC.
an official notification of whether any migration cuts will be made by DIAC in november. ( so she went on to advise that we fill in all forms ready to go as soon as practicle is hopefully passed so it can be lodged!!)
