  1. hi all ours is a 885. my other half (secondary applicant) has been asked by CO to provide work experience details as we are claiming extra 5 points !! we hd originally submitted his contract papers. now the CO has asked for experience letter and payslips/tax returns etc. we have now submitted all the reqd documents including payslips(except there are few missing payslips), bank statements showing salary credit, tax returns, super. do you think the missing payslips would create an issue?? also would they call up the office and verify ?.. i hv no worries as im still working in the same company!! my worry is this should not delay the process!! any faced a similar situation?? how long does it take the CO to respond back or acknowledge what we hv sent anyone pl clarify.. this is eating away my head!!!!
  2. Here is the latest processing update email from GSMB Brisbane. GENERAL SKILLED MIGRATION BRISBANE PROCESSING INFORMATION This is an automated e-mail response which provides updated information on skilled migration applications being processed by GSM Adelaide. Please do not reply to this email address as this mailbox is not monitored. Contact details for the ASPC and GSM Brisbane are listed below. IMPORTANT NOTICE Changes to Priority Processing – 14 July 2010 Direction No. 48 - Order of consideration - certain skilled migration visas The Migration Act 1958 contains powers by which the Minister can consider and finalise visa applications in an order of priority that the Minister considers appropriate. Departmental officers are required to follow this Ministerial direction, which applies to every stage of visa processing. The Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Senator Chris Evans, has set new priority processing arrangements for certain skilled migration visas. These arrangements take account of the changes to the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) that came into effect on 1 July 2010, as well as the revocation of the Migration Occupation in Demand List (MODL) and the Critical Skills List (CSL). These priority processing arrangements apply to applications already lodged with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, as well as to future applications. The new priority processing arrangements apply to the following visa programs: · The Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) · The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) · General Skilled Migration (GSM) The following GSM visa subclasses are exempt from the priority processing provisions specified in Direction 48: · Skilled – Recognised Graduate Subclass 476 · Skilled – Graduate Subclass 485 · Skilled – Designated Area – Sponsored (Residence) Subclass 883 · Skilled – Regional Subclass 887 Applications for these visa subclasses will be processed in the order in which they are received. The following GSM applications are exempt from Direction 48: · applications that have been remitted by the Migration Review Tribunal for reconsideration; · applications where it is readily apparent that the criteria for grant of the visa would not be satisfied; · applications by members of the family unit of a person who holds a temporary or provisional GSM visa (subsequent entrant applications). · visa applications for a Skilled – Regional Sponsored Subclass 487 visa where the applicant holds a Skilled – Independent Regional (Provisional) Subclass 495 visa, Skilled – Designated Area-sponsored (Provisional) Subclass 496 visa, Skilled – Regional Sponsored Subclass 487 visa or Skilled – Regional Sponsored Subclass 475 visa at the time they apply. The Skilled Migration visa processing priorities Under the Ministerial Direction, the following processing priorities (with highest priority listed first) apply: Applications from people who are employer sponsored under the ENS and the RSMS. 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. Applications from people who have nominated an occupation on the new Skilled Occupation List (SOL) – Schedule 3 in effect from 1 July 2010. See: http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/new-list-of-occupations.pdf All other applications are to be processed in the order in which they are received. Further information can be found via the following link: What's New? Recent Changes in General Skilled Migration Priority Processing Exemptions & Current Processing Times Visa Subclasses 476, 485 and 887 are exempt from the priority processing changes. Applications under these subclasses will continue to be processed in the order in which they were received by the department – the following subclass by application lodgement date identifies cases currently being considered: Visa Subclass Skilled – Graduate Subclass 485 VC 485 (paper): 21 September 2009 Skilled – Regional Subclass 887 VB 887 (paper): Lodged in July 2010 Skilled Onshore E-Lodged Applications - Priority Group 3 885, 886 and 487 - Applications lodged 14 August 2008 Processing News INCREASED VISA APPLICATION CHARGES (VACs) – 1JULY 2010 Information on fees and charges is published on the department's website at Fees & Charges - Applications & Forms - Visas & Immigration When a VAC is changed, the new amount applies to all visa applications received by the department on and after the day the VAC is changed. Therefore if an application will be received by the department on or after 1 July 2010 please ensure that the correct VAC is paid. An application has not been validly made until the full VAC is received. We have been advised that the relevant visa charges have increased as follows: If the first instalment of the VAC payable was previously $AUD230 it is $AUD235 from 1 July 2010 If the first instalment of the VAC payable was previously $AUD2525 it is $AUD2575 from 1 July 2010 For GSM applicants liable to payment of a second instalment of the VAC the amount payable will be $AUD3575 for applications lodged on or after 1 July 2010.

  5. Hi all We have just received this e mail from ANMC: Dear Lisa, Your ANMC skills assessment is almost complete. The professional reference that you included does not meet ANMC standards. The reference should include detailed statements and examples of your professional competence as a registered nurse. Once you have submitted a professional reference that meets ANMC requirements I can complete your assessment. To be honest we dont know exactly what they are asking for. Does anyone care to share what their reference said so that Lisa's boss has a idea of what is required? :biggrin: Hope to hear from one of you lovely people soon. JOHN
  6. We are coming over for our validation trip in July/August and plan to spend some of our time wandering around suburbs looking for the right one for us, but I am hoping to be able to short-list some likely suburbs before we get there so that we can make best use of our time. Financially it looks like we will be heading for the Hills district, or the Shire. I have been following the "which suburb" thread with interest but don't want to hijack it, so here I am with my new thread! My preference would be for the Shire, so I am looking for some more specific info please. For instance, could anyone let me know which areas are "better" and which ones should be avoided? I can see that it is nearer the coast, but are there actually beaches there? Does anyone know if there are any areas where dogs can be walked off lead? Either on beach or in park? What secondary schools would be good for our 12 year old son? He is a bright, academic but not very sporty lad. I am not sure if we could afford private. What areas are better/worse for the commute to CBD? I probably have loads more questions, but can't think of them just now. Any other local insights would be very much appreciated.
  7. Hi, Nearly completed e457 application, got to the special skills section and haven't got a clue what to put. Is there something specific i should mention? Also i have: a) No qualification in my trade. b) No qualifications whatsoever! (Apart from a few useless low grade GCSE'S.....Are they worth mentioning?) Do i leave the boxes blank or just enter N/A? Because i'm a thicko will this go against me? Cheers Andy
  8. For the sunshine coast area of queensland. Must admit i'm a bit of a storm freak and i like to track where they're heading and where they're predicted to head. I found the Australian Weather Watch Radar Network where you can log onto live weather radars and track current conditions. But i can't find anywhere with any detailed forecasts, the best they usually say is chance of a storm?
