    So:................................. "PROCESSING TIMEFRAMES Once your application is allocated to a case officer they will attempt to conduct their assessment in the following working week. If a decision cannot be made quickly they will write to you and provide their contact details." Are they suggesting I should hear something by no later than next Wednesday (being the Working Week?) I suppose if I don't I will be on the pile. Although I do have the name of the CO...........

    Sent NSW (Paramatta) an email and this is the reply: Dear Client, Thank you for your e-mail and apologies for the delay in responding. The case has been allocated to a case officer. The case officer is : XXXX XXXXX I have copied them into this email, so they may respond to you. Regards, So what does this mean, its in the pile or the CO is working on the application?

    There is no rhyme or reason to how things are being processed. 6 months on the 23rd March. Our application was DRC with nomination and through an MA who has processed several others from the same company, i.e. the compnay I work for. So I do not think we get preferential treatment at all, just relived of all money and hope. Yes they have pretty much screwed things up personally. Ho hum this is Australia and nothing is ever simple, this what they call living the dream!!! If it was Christmas at this point I would say "Bah Humbug".

    ALLOCATION TIMEFRAMES Pre 1 July 2012 Applications The network is currently allocating applications for assessment as below: [TABLE] [TR] [TD]Processing Centre [/TD] [TD]ENS [/TD] [TD] RSMS [/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Parramatta [/TD] [TD]All Cases Allocated [/TD] [TD] 13 June 2012 [/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Melbourne [/TD] [TD]All Cases Allocated [/TD] [TD] 1 April 2012 [/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Perth [/TD] [TD]29 June 2012 [/TD] [TD] 26 April 2012 [/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] Applications declared as “Decision Ready” by registered migration agents continue to receive priority allocation. However, due to the unprecedented number of applications lodged in June 2012 we cannot provide an estimated allocation timeframe. If your application was lodged before the dates listed above please explain this in your email and we will respond to you as soon as possible. We are working through our large caseload in the most efficient manner possible and thank you for your patience during this busy period. Post 1 July 2012 electronically lodged Applications Due to the large influx of applications in June 2012, our capacity to allocate post July 2012 electronic applications has been affected. Decision Ready applications are a priority. We are currently allocating e-lodged applications received July-August 2012. Attachments for e-lodged applications We appreciate that there have been some challenges around e-lodging attachments. All supporting documentation for e-lodged applications however should be uploaded through the e-lodge system as they will be automatically filed and linked to your case. Attachments forwarded by other means have been known to go astray causing delays in the finalisation of the application. Please ensure that you are familiar with the advice around attachments on the DIAC website. Information/documents specifically requested by a case officer should be emailed directly to that case officer. PROCESSING TIMEFRAMES Once your application is allocated to a case officer they will contact you within 7 working days of your application being allocated. If you have not been contacted by a case officer, and your application was lodged after the above dates, then it has not yet been allocated. There are a range of factors that can impact the processing time of an application, including: - whether the application was complete at time of lodgement; - how quickly you respond to requests to provide documentation; - complications obtaining health clearances; - if police checks haven’t been completed they may take significant time to obtain; and - checks with third parties to verify claims made in an application. The Department’s published service standards for the processing of ENS/RSMS applications can be found at: http://www.immi.gov.au/about/charters/client-services-charter/visas/8.0.htm While we attempt to finalise all applications as soon as possible, the service standards acknowledge that 25% of cases will be finalised outside of these time frames.

    I tired using the MA, about as helpful as a chocolate tea pot, basically took my money and run! :arghh: Tried contacting the DIAC there not very helpful either :arghh: Just a case of waiting, you can try sending them a blank email and get a reply it tells you where they are in the process but not on individual case. nsw.pse@immi.gov.au this is for Paramatta :SLEEP::SLEEP:

    Are you using an MA or doing it yourself? When I spoke to the DIAC they did mention when you receive the acknowledgement letter/email that it might be worth giving them a call to get an idea of timescales. Why did you submit on two different dates?

    I spoke with the DIAC today on the 131 number. The details given above are for the standard application i.e. lodged by a 'normal' person and not a Migration Consultant/Agent (MA). I spoke with them and the timescales for my application which is a 186 ENS prepared and submitted by the MA and as DRC, with the Employee Nomination and the Application lodged. At the moment when submitted online both by MA and a normal person its taking 4-6 weeks for the application to be 'picked' up in the process. At this point once 'picked up' an Acknowledgement Letter is sent out confirming the application has been lodged. At this point if its via a MA and DRC its treated differently then a normal application. A Case Officer (CO) is normally assigned within 10 days. The CO then apparently has 2 weeks in which to make a decision. Is this everyone else's experience when using a MA with a DRC application? Thanks FlappyC
