  1. Does anyone know if you can get Australian National Police Checks priority processed? My boyfriend and I have nearly had our visa granted but just found out he needs australian police clearance now. We want to go to Australia at the end of the month as I start work next month.. is there any way of getting it processed as quickly as possible? Also, how do you pay for it if you are overseas?
  2. \i have not seen this posted on the board yet, this should be sticky for abit, Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship GSM Adelaide - Level 3 55 Currie Street Adelaide SA 5000 GPO Box 1638 ADELAIDE SA 5001 • Telephone: 1300 364 613 • Fax: 08 7421 7615 • www.immi.gov.au GSM Brisbane - 299 Adelaide Street Brisbane QLD 4000 GPO Box 9984 BRISBANE QLD 4001 • Telephone: 1300 364 613 • Fax: 07 3136 7473 • www.immi.gov.au Important information for certain Priority Group 3 applicants who received a letter from DIAC in March 2011 advising that their application is expected to be allocated within three months 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. General Questions about these letters Q1: Who has this letter been sent to? This letter has been sent to a selection of eVisa Priority 3 applicants whose application is expected to be allocated a case officer for assessment within three months of the date of this letter. The applications within this group are ones which can proceed with health and character requirements without the application first being assessed by a case officer. If you have not received this letter it is because your application is one which is unable to proceed without first being assessed by a case officer, or it is one which is not expected to be assessed in coming months. The timeframe for allocation of your case to a case officer will not be affected by this. Applications will continue to be allocated for assessment in accordance with the priority processing arrangements and within date of lodgement order. Information on current allocation dates can be obtained by sending a blank email to gsm.processing@immi.gov.au. - 2 - Q2: What are the specific requirements of this letter? If you have received a letter addressed to you which confirms that your application is in Priority Group 3 and is expected to be allocated to a case officer for assessment within three months of the date of that letter, you and any family members included in your application should now follow the instructions of that letter. That is, all family members included in your application should now: 1. Undertake your health and character clearances if you have not already done so. 2. Complete Form 80: Personal particulars for character assessment 3. Update the Department on any change to your circumstances since lodgement of your application (if any). 4. Provide any documents relevant to your application that you have not already provided. Q3: Should I proceed with these clearances now? Yes, if you have received this letter. This is because the department expects to be able to be able to allocate your application to a case officer for assessment within three months of the date of this letter. By initiating these health and character clearances now and providing Form 80 and any other documents relevant to your application, you are likely to enable your application to be assessed in a quicker timeframe once it is allocated to a case officer. It is also possible that a decision may be able to be made when your application is first assessed without the need for your case officer to contact you about any outstanding requirements. Q4: Who should undertake these clearances? This letter refers to yourself and all members of your family unit listed in your application, irrespective of whether or not they are migrating with you. Members of your family unit include the following persons (as applicable): • a spouse, • dependent children, • children born after your application was lodged, and • a dependent widowed parent. If you have received this letter, all members of your family unit included in your application should now attend to the requirements listed. - 3 - Q5. I have received both a Personalised Letter (emailed on either 18th or 21st March 2011) advising me to undertake health and character clearances, and accessed the Invitation to undertake Health and Character attached to the auto-reply at gsm.processing@immi.gov.au – which one should I follow? If you have received a letter personally addressed to you which confirms that your application is in Priority Group 3 and is expected to be allocated to a case officer for assessment within three months of the date of that letter, you and any family members included in your application should now follow the instructions of that letter as listed as Q2. eVisa application and access Q6: I have forgotten my eVisa password and can not attach documents to the webbrowser, what should I do? If you have forgotten your eVisa password and are unable to attach information requested in this letter to your eVisa application via the web-browser (http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/general-skilled-migration-attachments.htm) you will need to forward any clearances, forms or requested documentation by email to gsm.documents@immi.gov.au. When doing so please ensure that you include your Client File Number and the Letter Reference Number. Health clearance results will be sent to the department by the clinic you visit. Please note that eVisa passwords are unable to be re-set. Q7: I can’t get into my eVisa application to download the medical forms, what should I do? To log into your eVisa application you will need to enter the Transaction Reference Number (TRN) listed at the top of the letter, your name, date of birth and passport number. If some any reason you are unable to download these forms, you will need to wait until your application has been allocated to a case officer for assessment (within three months of the date of this letter) before attending to this requirement. A case officer will assist you at this point in time. You may however, proceed with other requirements of this letter. - 4 - Health and Character clearances Q8: How should I apply for my health and character clearances? Health Clearances: Background information on the health requirement and health clearance process is available at: http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/health-requirements/. To obtain the forms required for a health examination, you will need to visit https://www.ecom.immi.gov.au/inquiry/query/query.do?action=eVisa. From here youwill need to log into your eVisa application. The Health forms (160EH and 26EH) are available to be downloaded from the Document Checklist link. Character Clearances: Background information on the character requirement and instructions on how to initiate a character clearance is available at: http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/character-requirements/ For the Australian Government to determine whether you are of good character, police certificates are required for each country you have lived in for 12 months or more over the last ten (10) years since turning 16 years of age. This includes Australia if you have resided in Australia for 12 months or more during this period. Each applicant included in the application aged 16 years or over will need to initiate these clearances irrespective of whether they are migrating with you. Q9: I am unable to obtain the results of my health clearance from the doctor, what should I do? If you have undertaken a health examination with an approved panel doctor (outside of Australia) or Medibank Health Solutions (in Australia), there is nothing further you need to do in relation to obtaining a health clearance. The results of your examination will be forwarded by the doctor to the department. You will be contacted if there are any further requirements once your case has been allocated to a case officer for assessment. As mentioned in this letter allocation of your case is likely to occur within three months of the date of this letter. Q10. I require a letter from DIAC listing all applicant names to obtain character clearances, how should I proceed? The department is aware that in some countries such a letter from the department is required before an applicant can undertake character clearances. If this is the case for you or any members of your family unit, please note that this letter may be used for this purpose. You may also use the Acknowledgement Letter sent to you when your application was lodged. You should present a copy of this Acknowledgement Letter and the letter provided by email in March when applying for a character clearance. - 5 - Alternatively, specific information as required for a clearance can be provided to you when your application has been allocated to a case officer for assessment. Q11: I am not sure if one of my clearances is still valid? If you have any queries about these instructions or the validity of a clearance you have already obtained, you will need to wait until you have been allocated a case officer and raise these queries at that time. This is because a case officer will need to assess your application in its entirety before determining whether any new clearances will be required. As mentioned in this letter, the department expects to allocate your application to a case officer within three months from the date of this letter. Hence, the validity of a particular clearance already obtained will be clarified within a relatively short timeframe. Form 80 Q12. Form 80: Should I download this form from my eVisa application or the DIAC website? A new Form 80: Personal particulars for character assessment should be completed for all applicants including dependents aged 16 years or over irrespective of whether they are migrating or not, and irrespective of whether this form(s) was provided when lodging your application. This up-to-date information will assist with the processing of an application once it is allocated. Form 80 should be downloaded from department’s website at: http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/80.pdf and not via your eVisa application.This form can be electronically completed and submitted to the department. Once complete you can attach this form online or email it to gsm.documents@immi.gov.au. If emailing to the department please ensure that you include your Client File Number and the Letter Reference Number within the subject line of the email. Providing clearances, forms or relevant documentation to the Department Q13: How should I provide the documentation requested in this letter? eVisa applicants should attach any clearances, forms or relevant documentation to the web-browser. For information on how to attach documents to the web-browser see: http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/general-skilled-migration-attachments.htm. If you are unable to attach documents to the web-browser, or you do not have your current eVisa password, these documents should be emailed to gsm.documents@immi.gov.au. Please ensure that you include your Client File Number and the Letter Reference Number within the subject line of the email. As mentioned above, health clearance results will be sent to the department by the clinic you visit. - 6 - What next? Q14: I have now provided all of my clearances, a new Form 80 and updated any changes in circumstances (as requested in this letter), when will my application be allocated to a case officer? If you have received this letter it is because the department expects to be able to allocate your application for assessment by a case officer within three months of the date of this letter. Applications will continue to be allocated in accordance with the priority processing arrangements as specified at http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/updated-priorityprocessing-arrangements.htm and after that, in date of lodgement order. Please note that this three month timeframe relates only to the initial assessment of your application. The length of time taken to process an application will be determined by any other outstanding requirements and your action to any request. You may wish to obtain an update on which GSM applications are currently being allocated to case officers for assessment. To do so, please send a blank email to gsm.processing@immi.gov.au. This auto-response is updated fortnightly and will provide you with an indication of when your application is nearing allocation. Once your application is allocated to a case officer, we request you allow a further six weeks for your application to be assessed. Q15. Is there anything else I can do? If you have received this letter and all members of your family unit included in your application have completed all of the requirements specified, there is nothing further you need to do until you are contacted by a case officer. At this point in time your case officer will advise you of any further requirements, or a decision, once they have assessed your application. Further questions Q16. I have further questions about these instructions, what can I do? If you have any queries about these instructions, you will need to wait until you have been allocated a case officer and raise these at that time. This is because a case officer will need to assess your application in its entirety and this can only be done once the application has been allocated. You may choose not to proceed with the requirements specified in this letter as this is not a formal request under the Migration Act. Please note that by not proceeding with these requirements the allocation of your application to a case officer will not be delayed but the time taken to finalise your application once it has been assessed by a case officer may be longer. Applications will continue to be allocated in accordance with the priority processing arrangements as specified at http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/updated-priorityprocessing-arrangements.htm and after that, in date of lodgement order. You may however, proceed with any elements of this letter for which you do not have questions. By doing this you may still allow your application to be processed in a quicker timeframe once allocated to a case officer for assessment. - 7 - Advice to applicants who have not received a letter Q17: When will other Priority Group 3 or 4 applicants be contacted? Applications are being allocated to a case officer for assessment in accordance with the priority processing arrangements set by the Minister for GSM applications. Under these arrangements the highest GSM priority is given to Priority Group 2 - applications from people who are nominated by a state or territory government agency with a nominated occupation that is specified on that state or territory’s state migration plan. Processing of Priority Group 2 applications is such they are now being allocated to a case officer to be assessed within a fortnight of receipt of their State/ Territory nomination form (Form 1100). Subsequently, processing has recommenced on Priority Group 3 applications in date of lodgement order within this priority grouping. Information on current processing dates for GSM applications can be obtained by sending a blank email to gsm.processing@immi.gov.au. You may wish to email this address periodically to determine whether the department is close to allocating applications commenced on the date of lodgement of your application. Further emails are expected to be sent to other Priority Group 3 and 4 applicants in coming months to advise of other applications nearing allocation to a case officer, and with updates on GSM application processing.
  3. Greetings everyone, Its my first post here, so pls excuse my writing. I have applied for 885 on 28th june 2010 and I am under priority 4 now. I have applied for new ICT Business Analyst - ANZSCO 261111 on 15th of feb in order to bring my file to p-3. Still waiting for outcome from the ACS. According to 18 march 2011 processing status the processing 2/09/2010 files for p-3 and visa 885(e-lodged). 1. May be after a month I will get my ACS skill assessment, Will I be able to my file to priority 3 as the time for that has already passed? 2. I am currently working as database support officer since last one year in Melbourne, Can that be helpful to move my file to p-3? 3. What should I do? Thanks in advance for you support Cheers Jatin
  4. 2 years ago, I applied 485 Graduate visa under the recent graduate 2231-79 because I didn't have four 7 in IELTS :mad: . After 1 year of working experience in IT company (Programmer) I applied 885 GSM August last year without changing my skill assessment. So my skill assessment is still under the recent graduate. Since Priority Process, I realised that I need to wait forever and ever, also my application priority fall into Category 4. But I saw 2231-79 in Category 1, Is it different as the recent graduate 2231-79 ? Could anyone give me advice what I need to do next? Some said do re-assessment with ACS to make my skill is under Category 3. In that case, should I withdraw my GSM 885 application and apply new one to change my skill assessment? or It is possible to change it without withdrawing my 885 application. If possible to change it without withdrawing the application, what should I do? Is it true that an immigration agency can change my skill assessment by contacting Immigration office without withdrawing the 885 application? :no: I really don't want to apply new application to change my skill assessment because I have to do from the scratch if I need to do so. :arghh: Please please help me, I am getting freaked out because of Australia immigration law. :Randy-git:

    Priority group 4

    Some interview with Chris Bowen, with some interesting info for Cat 4 applicants: Full interview: Multiculturalism, skilled migration program, overseas students Interesting quote: " .... Mares: But they’re persistently at the bottom of the queue, that’s the words of your own briefing from your own department to you when you became Minister in the so-called Red Book. The department has warned you these people are not being processed; they are persistently at the bottom of the queue. Bowen: Well, they will be processed. Mares: When? Bowen: But we do prioritise those who meet the criteria, and that’s as it should be. Now that backlog of the skilled migration program has come down. When that Red Book that you referred to was handed to me it was about 150,000; it’s now about 130,000. Importantly, that total backlog includes partners and relatives, so that’s not the number of primary applicants; the number of primary applicants is about half that. ..... " At least he said "they will be processed".
  6. 3 years since we filed our application ! And still no clue what the future holds for it... My biggest disappointment is the fact that the Ministry and DIAC are not revealing their plans for us priority 4 applicants. why cant they just publish one of the following: You are not going to be processed. You will be surely processed but we are not certain when. We have no idea what to do with you guys, we are not hiding anything. And put us out of our misery.
  7. Hi to all, and I hope that you are all getting along nicely this evening. It's been a while since I have been on here, infact it's been a while since I first started this long drawn process. So after alot of time, I have finally had some good news. I applied for a Subclass 176 Skilled Sponsored Visa for Victoria, and have has a successful outcome. Now I have to apply to the DIAC, which again seems a daunting process, and will require alot of patience and putting life plan on hold again, but what i don't know is, how long for. So is there any indication as to how long the processing times are for a Subclass 176 Skilled Sponsored Visa, going as a 32 year old, English Carpenter/Joiner, whom is heading in the direction of Melbourne? I have a feeling that this again is going to be a long process! I haven't actually applied to the DIAC yet as I only received the positive outcome from Victoria Immigration yesterday, and have to now read and understand what the next step is. If anybody has any information, it would be much appreciated, as this again will determine what happens in the next stage of my life... Many thanks, and good luck in your own quests, Scotty.
  8. Hi There, I have got a critical question!!! My nominated occupation is in Schedule 2 and Schedule 4 but not in SA State Sponsored Migration List (SSML). Recently, I have applied for SA State sponsorship. (onshore as an off-list nominee) Do you guys have any idea if my sponsorship get approved from SA; which priority shall I get? Priority 2 or priority 4? If anyone could shed some light on this issue would be highly appreciated.

    Priority processing question

    Hi all, In April 2009 i applied for a 176 Family sponsored visa. Since the changes to the SOL my occupation is no longer on the list. Even if i was granted state sponsorship would i still be Catagory 4? (My occupation is on the SA list) I have received a very thorough e-mail from DAIC which clarifys a lot of points but i still have this question from it all. In one statement we are excepemt from the July 2010 changes as we applied in 2009, but in another they said i could only be a priority with Employer sponsorship. Does anyone know??? Thanks Rah Rah
  12. Hello, Can anyone tell me why the list for state occupation priority list for western australia is dated june 2010 on their website? i went on their website and just downloaded it. Is it the current valid list? My job (399512 Camera operator (film, television or video) High) is on that list as high priority... But i am confused as pomzinoz members have copied in a much shorter list on the website that does not list my job. Anybody has an explanation for me before i get too excited?? Cheers, Sophie.

    SA SSML & Priority Processing

    Hi All, I've lodged my Visa application under Subclass 475 on 06/05/2010 with a SA State Sponsorship. My nominated occupation is Electrical Engineering Associate (ASCO-3123-11) and it's not there in the new SA SSML. According to SOL-Schedule-4 "An applicant with a relevant valid skills assessment in an ASCO occupation should map it to the relevant ANZSCO occupation" and relevant ANZSCO occupation for Electrical Engineering Associate is Electrical Engineering Draftsmen. Electrical Engineering Draftsmen is in the new SA SSML. Could anyone please help me to figure it out that whether I'll get Priority 2 or not ..??

    cat 3 priority - what order?

    Hi All, I hope you all had a brilliant xmas. I was just wondering if anyone knew how DIAC actually allocate CO's once tackling a pile of applications in a Cat (3) ! Is it just by date order ? Do applications with agents / particular jobs / age / kids / surname get priority? I am not sure how I am going to keep sane for possibly 18 - 24 months of waiting to know - any tips ?? :wub:Thanks Jodie
  15. Hey guys, I am new here and thought I'd start a new thread for the new priority processing timeline for the skilled migration? I think it will be beneficial to everyone, to somehow better "understand" how the processing priorities have changed. So here goes: Date of Visa application: Nationality: Trade/profession: Visa type: Pre-14th July 2010 Category (If applicable): Post-14th July Category: Medicals submitted: Police check submitted: Date CO assigned: Date of employment verification (If applicable): Date visa granted:
  16. Inspired by the similarly named thread for ICT recent graduates, i have decided to set up a thread for Group A applications. Given the new release from DIAC: http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/acs-skills-assessment-review.pdf Are people looking to get their skills reassessed/reviewed? Has anyone done this already? If so please do share your experiences with the rest of this group. VISA SUBCLASS 175 CLASS VE, 2231-79 (nec) applied may 2009, priority gp 4

    Priority processing 2 or 3?

    :wink: I have viewed PomsInOz for the past 2 years however this is the first time I have posted anything, thanks you guys for being so informative and entertaining during the dark and uncertain times of visa prosessing! I am unsure of the priority group I should be in as I lodged my 175 on the 6th of Feb 2010 and recieved 176 sponsorship from QLD on the 1st Dec 2010. My Occupation is not on the Qld (176) SMP( a very short list) but is on the Qld (475/487) SMP, my occupation is on the SOL list. Since the release of the Qld SMP have I moved from priority 3 to 2 or am I still in priority 3 ????? :wub:
  18. I was sponsored by SA as Telecommunications Engineer based on their interim list. One week after getting my sponsorship, SA announced that it wont be accepting further applications for Telecommunications Engineer because this occupation has reached its planning level. However I was satisfied that since I was sponsored by SA in my occupation even before reaching the planning level, so when SA announce its smp I will move to Cat 2. I sent an email to SA yesterday just for confirmation and I received the reply today. As far as I can understand they will not include Telecommunications Engineer in their smp meaning I will not move to Cat2. I want to know that if this happens then which cat I am in? The email from SA is pasted below:

    application priority

    Hi all, I applied for my 175 skilled independent visa on July 2009. My occupation is a network engineer (so i'm in priority 4) and i see that this occupation appeared on the Northern territory state migration plan so the question is will this affect the priority of my application (without applying for sponsorship). I won't be able to apply for the state sponsorship due to financial issues so will the priority of the application be changed due to the fact that my occupation is present on one of the state migration plan. I'd be very grateful if someone could help me with his opinion on this issue. Thanks.
  20. i was wondering - with the new points test coming out in July 2011, are there likely to be changes to priority processing? Will DIAC process applications under the new points test first? then process any remaining applications from previous years? Just curious - not sure whether to apply now or to apply later, especially if applying now might just mean waiting for an extended period of time.

  22. I have a 417 working holiday visa valid until July next year. Im just trying to clarify whether if I take up being sponsored on a 457 now and I leave my employer before July whether the 417 would take priority? eg. if i was sposonered on a 457 for 2 months now and then left my employer in December would I have to leave Australia within 28 days of leaving my job or could I stay until next July (when the working holiday ends?). thanks
  23. Dear All As many of us are waiting for SMP announcement, and we know that it will be released in MID Oct. or GOD KNOWS when ..... my queries are 1- What will happen if Some one is already State sponsored. CAT-4, but his occupation will not be in SMP, then what will be the difference between that sponsored candidate and the other CaT-4 Applicant? 2- What will happen if Some one is already State sponsored. CAT-3, but his occupation will not be in SMP, then what will be the difference between that sponsored candidate and the other CaT-3 Applicant? 3-Any Idea that there will be new Processing priorities? I know no one can answer this but expert opinions are always welcomed ...... Cheeers US-Man
  24. I am posting this for a friend. We have been doing some research on the Queensland immigration site and just want to confirm that wehave understood correctly. I understand that Queensland is still taking applications for state sponsorship for certain occupations on Schedule 3 (I think). I am assuming that this is under the old system, ie not the State Migration Plan and that this is currently processing priority 4. Could anyone confirm this please? Does anyone know how long this is currently taking? What happens then when the State Migration Plans eventually become active? If the occupation is then on the state migration plan list for Queensland, would this then automatically become priority 2 or stay at priority 4? What I am trying to say is would there be any advantage in applying for state sponsorship now rather than wait till the SMPs are announced, as if the processing stays at priority 4 it could mean a wait of several years? very confusing!
  25. A quick note to advise that the ASPC is presently allocating to case officers skilled visa applications with occupations on the new SOL that were lodged in February 2008. Best regards.
