    I didnt get her name i'm afraid. those were her words though, 'not stamped by processing manager which would suggest non drc' I'm waiting for a reply from my MA.

    I submitted end of june in perth. Getting conflicts from agent and diac but tend to believe diac. They have said the same to me that they cannot tell me drc or non drc. Although the lady at diac said my casefile 'suggests' it isnt drc as it would have been stamped by the processing manager by now. A shambles, especially the fact that you are not informed of status.

    Recieved this today from diac You will need to speak to your migration agent, as they have to make all the enquires on your behalf for this application. For further enquiries regarding Permanent Employer Sponsored Migration please telephone the DIAC contact centre on 131 881 from Monday to Friday 9am to 4.30pm Eastern Standard Time If i was you i'd call the number above. I just have and was told that my application either hasn't been processed or wasn't decision ready (even if the agent says it was) either way diac wouldnt contact the agent, they would just stick it in the pipeline and you waiting in vain. Hope it's good news for you, dont think it is for me.

    I dont know. Just saw it and thought it'd be of interest. At the end of the day you can have all the info you want/require, but the decision will be made when diac has come to a decision. A law to themselves i suspect.

    I found this if anyone hasn't already seen it. Priority processing arrangements apply to skilled migration applications. They determine the order in which the department considers applications. Applications accorded a higher priority under the arrangements will be processed ahead of lower priority applications, regardless of when the application is lodged. The following table details processing priorities for skilled migration applications. Note: The highest priority is listed first. SkillSelect applications (187, 186, 190 and 489) will be the highest priority in each group.

    DRC ( RSMS/ENS ) Timeline

    my migration agent suggested the same, ie, no CO just a decision. From that do i assume we'll get a decision around end of October? i've no idea of the timelines to be fair. I also submitted at Perth.

    457 To PR

    All the info above will help but i've found too much info makes everything cloudy. I would advise you pay an agent and have a consultation with them. You WILL get the correct info then. Dont forget they will try the hard sell to buy their product also but after your meeting your head will be clearer. Just a thought.

    Convictions - 457 Visa

    I'm no expert so dont take this as gospel, but the 457 police check is only for the applicant, the other person would be allowed entry on your visa. As for the PR application i wouldn't see any problems with not having declared as you dont have to. Also a caution is not seen as a criminal record as such, so very very much doubt it would matter.

    Pipe fitters

    Hi All, does anyone know of pipe fitter vacancies in Perth? I've got a 457 but the company i'm supposed to be going to work for are giving me the serious runaround. I need to get over to perth sharpish. This nice weather in the uk is making me think twice, not good. Thanks for any help people.

    Convictions - 457 Visa

    I had same problem, got arrested in2001, wont mention the offence. Make sure you declare it because your ACRO (required for 457) WILL reveal it. 100% it makes no difference to your application. Mine was passed by he way.
