    475 cat2 applicants - 2011

    Hi, My intention to start this thread is to compile together the timelines and important matters related to 475 applicants. Rex
  2. Hi all This from a DIAC report, dated June 10th: I think they mean January 2012 for allocating PG3 outside Australia applications. Assuming PG1-3 inflows continue, PG4 allocations look like being a long way way. Very unfortunate for those in PG4, and patience has its rewards for PG3. I suggest PG4 and some PG3s in a hurry look at other options such as 457.
  3. I did a bit of statistical calculations on the CAT 2 and CAT 3 applications: from the link provided.. FYI :Statistics - Migration Agent Activity Reports and Statistics The CAT 2 applications from (Oct 2009- Oct 2010) - 13356 cases submitted The CAT 3 applications from (Oct 2009- Oct 2010) - 19119 cases submitted. CAT 2 : CO allocations started in Nov2010 and are onto current dates by Feb 2011 CAT2 Average : 890 cases per week allocated to CO. ( Nov - 17th Feb 2011) CAT 3: Now, I am projecting the below to happen for CAT 3 allocations:-(if I consider an average of 4k application in between June 2009-Oct2009) - Total of 23119 cases starting this week. CAT 3 Average: if I take 890-900 allocations based on CAT 2 allocations. CAT 3 will take :23119/900 = ~25 weeks. so between March 2011 - Sept 2011. All applications upto Jan 2011 should be allocated CO's. PS: Not counting CAT 2 fallouts, CAT 3 fallouts into CAT 4 etc.( ppl with VE176 SS not in new SMP/SOL or VE175 applicants not in SOL). No work at office so atleast worked out the below logic,for some discussion. Experts your thoughts.:notworthy:
  4. Lodged my 175 visa 04.03.2009,WA SS obtained October 2009 now on WA SMP cat2....My form 1100 atached to my files 23 Dec.2010.....I send PLE few times,and call them after that.They told me;Please dont send PLE and dont call us...just wait for CO..!So frustrated now when I saw so many apllicants lodged in late 2010 and 2011 got visas.....Does anyone share same expirience with me...!:no:
  5. Got a CO on wednesday and have been updated to further processing, filled in form 80 and have faxed it of today to our agent,so hoping everything works out okay for we can,t wait if and when we get a visa............:arghh: Solid Plasterer: AQFIII Passed, 04-09 TRA applied 02-06-09, Passed23-06-09, WA SSV Applied 26-06-09, SSV Approved 08-11-09, Visa Applied 17-11-09, CO Assigned 19-01-11:arghh:

    How to move to Cat2.

    Have applied for GSM 175 in Oct 2010 cat -3 Looking at the 'waiting times' of the fellow mates in the forum... am just thinking what are the options of moving to cat-2 for me. How does one move to 176 to make me go to cat-2? When and how do i apply for the state sponsorships this year or the next year.
  7. Hi all! As everybody today I was very exited about the latest news from Victoria about their Eligibility List for SMP. :biggrin: I very appreciate all the help PIO members give to each other. Would you please help me with one question I have in regards to the announcement of this Eligibility List? Does anyone know if it's possible of switching from Category 4 to Category 2 for a person who has: 1. Pending application at DIAC 2. Sitting in Category 4. 3. No sponsorship. I heard that from July 1, 2010 DIAC eradicated possibility fo switching from an existing 175 application to a 176 one. But I also remember (but not sure) that this was applied only to new post-June applicants and those poor souls being in Category 4 have a possibility to get a sponsorship under SMP and move to Category 2 priority after SMPs are released. I would be grateful for any information on this issue, especially the links to the DIAC website (though, I haven't found anything about 175 -> 176 transition for existing applicants there). Thank you and have a great week! :notworthy: :hug:
