  1. Hi guys, there should have been an update on Friday on processing times (you get it by sending empty email to 'aspc.processing@immi.gov.au') However, there was no change and the system returns only information as of 15 April. The email reply is unusually lenghty. Anyone as new info about this? Cheers

    Afternoon, I found this on a thread a couple of weeks ago where if you mail a blank email to this address an auto mail is returned providing a guide to which months the DIAC are processing currently. I did this today and although the email is stated to be updated bi weekly it is last dated on the 6th Dec - Does anyone know if this is normally updated regulary?:wink: Thanks Jodie GENERAL SKILLED MIGRATION PROCESSING INFORMATION This is an automated e-mail response which provides updated information on processing of applications for General Skilled Migration (GSM). This information is updated fortnightly. Last updated 6 December 2010. Please do not send enquiries or reply to this email address as this mailbox is not monitored. Contact details for GSM are listed below. Current Processing Dates If your application date has recently come into our current processing date range you should allow at least 6 weeks to enable a case officer to complete the initial assessment. Please refrain from sending requests for an update on the status of your application within this 6 week period. Priority Processed Applications Under the priority processing direction we are giving priority in allocation to applications with a nominated occupation that appears in an active State Migration Plan - Priority Group 2. Priority Group 3 applications are allocated only where all Priority Group 2 have already been allocated. Priority Group 4 cases will be allocated once all Priority Group 3 are allocated. To determine which priority group your application falls into please read the information on the department’s website at: General Skilled Migration For further information regarding State Migration Plans please visit the department’s website at: What's New?

As processing times are dependent on a range of factors, individual processing times may vary considerably from the published estimates. Factors that can impact on processing times include, but are not limited to: - completeness of application - how quickly applicants respond to requests to provide documentation - medical complications - police checks - checks with third parties to verify claims made in an application. Contacting Us Providing additional documents Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit supporting documentation electronically. Providing scanned copies of documents reduces postal and administrative delays in receiving and processing information. GSM processing offices accept scanned copies of original documents (non-certified) provided they are in colour. If you scan documents in black and white, then they must be scanned copies of certified copies. The valid file types for attaching documents are BMP, DOC, DOT, GIF, JPG, PDF, RTF, TXT and XLS. Information which will assist you in attaching documents to your application or in emailing them to the department is available on the department’s website at: Attaching Documents to a General Skilled Migration Visa Application Online applications If you e-lodged this application you are strongly encouraged to attach all the supporting documentation to the application in the web-browser. This is the preferred procedure for providing supporting documents for an e-lodged application. If for any reason you cannot attach documents in the browser then you can email the documents as scanned attachments to the following email addresses: Brisbane.gsm.documents@immi.gov.au - E-lodged VB 885, VB 886, VB 887, VC 485, VC487 and VF 476 Adelaide.gsm.documents@immi.gov.au - all other General Skilled Migration applications. Paper lodged applications If you lodged a paper application you can still provide supporting documentation electronically by emailing the documents as scanned attachments to: adelaide.gsm.documents@immi.gov.au When emailing documents to the department please quote your Transaction Reference Number (TRN) or file reference number for this purpose. Do not send this office any original documents or provide paper copies of documents previously attached to the browser or sent by e-mail unless asked to do so by a departmental officer. Medical Results If you have undertaken your medical examination with Medibank Health Solutions (formerly Health Services Australia), please do not post your medical results to us unless your case officer requests you to do so. Please store your results in a secure place and do not open the sealed envelope. ENQUIRIES Email Our preferred means of communication for GSM enquiries is email. Before you contact the department with general enquiries about the GSM program, you should first read the relevant website content and links provided in this email. If the website information does not answer your enquiry, please refer below: If you have not lodged a GSM visa application, and would like more information, use the GSM Pre-Lodgement Enquiry Form at: General Skilled Migration Pre-Lodgement Enquiry Form If you have lodged a GSM visa application, but it has not yet been allocated to a case officer, and you have further queries, use the GSM Post-Lodgement Enquiry Form at: General Skilled Migration Post-Lodgement Enquiry Form Allocated to a case officer: Once your application is allocated to a case officer, assessment of your application will begin. At this time, your case officer will provide you with a specific email address and you should correspond directly by email with them. Telephone: 1300 364 613 (in Australia) for the cost of a local call; or +61 1300 364 613 (outside Australia) Contact Hours (Australian Central Time): 0900 to 1600 Monday to Friday Please note: due to the large volume of calls we receive, from time to time you may experience lengthy delays before getting to speak to a customer service officer.

  3. Hello everyone ... I'm very glad to join this forum, and I'm so sorry that I hadn't joind it long time ago. I've lodged my 175 visa application on June 2008. I received the acknowldment and BCC number in the same month. Since then I'm keeping an eye on the visa processing time line through aspc.processing@immi.gov.au. It's been three months since I lodged my visa, and ASPC hasn't moved one day to process 175 visas; they are stuck on 19-Sep-2007. If they contineu at this pace, it is not likely that they would finish the visa processing in 15 months !! So, does anyone know how they are processing, do they progress day-by-day, or they just make big hops and moves one month at a time ?? Thanks in advance Roky
