    Are 175s dead in the water?

    I have been reading on here about all the 175 visas that are being processed and to be honest I am confused! My wife is a Nurse and we would prefer to apply for a 175 as it would give us more flexibility but there is no mention of a 175 visa in the list of priorities which were brought out on the 23 September: 1. applications from people who are employer sponsored under the ENS and the RSMS 2. applications from people who are nominated by a State/Territory government and whose nominated occupation is listed on the Critical Skills List (CSL) 3. applications from people who are sponsored by family and whose nominated occupation is listed on the CSL 4. applications from people who are neither nominated nor sponsored but whose nominated occupation is listed on the CSL 5. applications from people who are nominated by a State/Territory government whose nominated occupation is not listed on the CSL 6. (i) applications from people whose occupations are listed on the Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL) and (ii) applications from people who are sponsored by family and whose nominated occupation is not listed on the CSL. I had always assumed that 175s were classed in priority 7: 7. all other applications are to be processed in the order in which they are received. We have applied for state sponsorship and were waiting till January 2010 which is when my wife has completed a year as a nurse and then we were going to apply for a 176. And bearing in mind the new list of priorities I thought that applying for a 175 was a waste of time. So am I wrong? JOHN
  2. Hi All, I was just wondering about something I noticed on Be Update. We applied on 4th January 2009 for a 175 visa online. We are on the CSL, so should hope to be processed soon. I noticed that there are other 175 applicants being processed before us, but they mainly seem to come from hign risk countries. Are there different rules for high and low risk? Also, the latest ASPC update is saying that CSL applications will be processed when the state and employer sponsored applications have been exhausted. Does this means no 175s will be processed, as I imagine new state and employer ones are being submitted all the time? It used to say CSLs would be processed in date order, but it doesn't anymore. Does anyone know what is going on? Sorry to go on, but Im getting quite frustrated....
  3. Wonder if there is anyone out there (or if you heard of anyone) who got a 175 visa issued this week. I am wondering if the processing centres have gone into lockdown mode whilst they try to figure out the impact of changes announced on Monday and who they are supposed to be processing, or are they back to business as usual?? Any idea anyone?
  4. It *appears* that recent 175s on the CSL are now being assigned COs. These two people on 175 on the CSL that applied only in Nov 08, have now got Case Officers!

  5. Hi all, Really fed up, our agent lodged our Visa application (online) in early January, advised us to frontload our Pc's & med's which we did late early May, heard nothing since, apart from, our med's have been looked at and are lodged on the system waiting for a final decision !! Anyone else lodge their visa app in January and heard anything or not, as the ase maybe ?? The longer it goes on the, the more we think, the answer's going to be a resounding no !!:arghh::arghh: OH, is Nurse & and passed skills with ANMC, thought they were crying out for nurses ?? Maybe not.... Bye.....Pat & Janie
