Have all the States and Union Territories released their SOL for Visa 190 for the year 15-16(1st July 2015 to 30th June 2016)? If yes, where can I find it?

But they won't put it into action before the list comes out. So expect it to be from now till July 1st.

I would assume that due to the current strike by DIBP (due to end on 26th June), the merger between CBP and DIBP, and the new website due to launch on 1st July that we won't see the new SOL until 1st July.

Could be wrong, but there seems to be very little updating being done on the current website at the moment.

I am sure I have read on the immi posts on Facebook that they will release it on the 1st July and not before.

From the Immi Gov website:

 

Planned System Outage – from 9pm Friday 26 June until 8am Saturday 27 June 2015 AEST (GMT +10). The current time in Canberra is: 13:52 PM, 23 June.

 

I guess they will be doing essential maintenance and possibly updating the SOL

over this period, too.

It seems that it's possible/probable that this outage is when the SOL will be released, however the system outages are a regular occurrence and are advised in advance on a continuous basis. This one is for 24 hours though which I haven't seen before (it's normally only 3-4 hours) so I expect something big will be happening.

I'm picturing everyone (including me) sat by their phones, tablets, computers, eagerly waiting for it to come back online and see that nothing's changed!!

Any tentative dates regarding the release of SOL or CSOL ?

 

Waiting at this stage is really annoying.

 

Is there any one who belongs to 223111: Human Resource Adviser ???

Welcome to the forum Mona.

I have a question regarding the SOL which you as a MARA agent may be able to answer.

If a person has an application already submitted for 189 and has paid the visa fee etc. but no Case Officer has yet been assigned. And that persons occupation is subsequently removed from the SOL on 1st July, what exactly happens to the application? Does it continue as normal? Or, is it affected in some way?

Your professional input would be graciously received. Thanks.

Obviously I meant 11 hours.....,oops! ;-)

Hi There,

 

The applicable legislation is the one that is enforced at the time of lodgement of the application. If the occupation was on the SOL when the application was lodged by the person, then the person has met that requirement regardless of whether or not a case officer is allocated. Thus, in this person's case you have mentioned, the processing will go as normal!

 

Hope this helps and thanks for the welcome :)

Thanks Mona,

 

I appreciate the reply. So just to confirm if the occupation is removed then the person will not drop down to a lower priority group?

Priority group applies to the whole visa subclass, not specific occupations within it.

 

That's great! Got it. Thanks!!!
