Skillselect ENS 186 Timeline

Hi all,

 

I just caught up with my MA who let me know that on Monday she received a visa approval for DE application made in June.

My MA also said that speed of PR approval also depends on how close they are to meet the overall annual migration quota for Australia. For 2015-16, the annual quota was set at 190,000 and PR (across all categories) was granted around that number. For 2016-17, we are in mid-year and there are backlogs of application from 2015-16 that Dept is processing right now. At this moment, they are still processing the applications that were lodged in 2015-16. Current year's application processing has not yet started.

 

Other possible reason for long processing time for some and short for others is the balance that Dept tries to maintain w.r.t to meeting the quota of individual occupation skill. They try to create a balance of demand and supply in the economy by delaying or expediting PR approval depending on ones' occupation. For eg. a skill that is on SOL and is close to meet its individual annual quota has the potential to be very restrictive approval from other categories such as ENS. Similarly, for CSOL listed occupations, they tend to maintain a ceiling for each occupation and accordingly control the approvals.

 

Dept has its algorithm to process the applications that considers multiple variables for queue management & approval of applications. Very difficult for any MA or anyone to exactly state the rationale behind the application processing and approval.

 

Hope for the best that all of us get approval within 6 months at one go!!

That makes a lot of sense to me.

 

Regarding the CSOL approvals though, controlling the ceiling is not necessarily a positive move for the economy.

186 applications are sponsored by employers. And companies are usually not willing to sponsor people if they have locals that fit what they need.

A local can have the right occupation without having the needed specialised skills.

That way of thinking could actually hurt the economy more than help it.

Got a question for you guys..

My migration agent didn't get us to sign a declaration to declare that they have been appointed by us. What impact will this have on the application?

Found out today as there is no TRN number after we requested it from the agent. So basically no one can see anything on a immigration account.

Advice please

Ask your MA to get it done and uploaded.

The TRN number is supplied to your MA in the bridging visa.

It sounds fishy..TRN IS automatically generated once the application is lodged . Even if it is paper based app.. you should receive your TRN within 2 weeks in worst case scenario. Call the Immi and they can track using your passport details. If the immigration can't trace out your details, Mate u should do real talking to your MA.

@MAY2016 - Hi there, did you receive any acknowledgement from your MA that your DE nomination and visa has been lodged? As soon as the application is lodged, following documents are auto-generated from the Immi system and it should be shared by your MA with you -

 

-> Receipt of Nomination and Visa payment; IMMI Acknowledgement of Visa Application;Bridging Visa A for all the applicants.

 

TRN is mentioned in all these documents.

Thanks @jess6 - yep, realise that..but also feeling frustrated. It's been a long time since the forecasted 4-6 months and the delay is really painful. And until the ink's dry, nothing is certain.

 

Wish I'd agreed to be on my employer's 457 (already on another visa) then I'd have applied via TRN. But who knew IMMI was going to change their processing like this? Anyway, hope we get it soon. Most excruciating wait of our lives - think the anxiety would be more manageable if we knew what timelines to expect. Praying, praying for us all!

 

 

@Izzielizzie - you will get it soon - I am sure April DE haven't been forgotten, keep in mind that you only see an extremely small sample of applications here.

As much as the forum is useful, it can also create anxiety - so try to take everything with a grain of salt :-)

That being said, I completely get how you feel ;-)

@jess6 and @syd2016, thanks for sharing. I agree that setting occupation celings shouldn't apply to employer-sponsored roles. Employers generally wouldn't bother with the hassle of sponsoring were it not for genuine need. The quota should only apply to other visa categories. Hope the processing speeds up soon.

 

That makes a lot of sense to me.

 

Regarding the CSOL approvals though, controlling the ceiling is not necessarily a positive move for the economy.

Thank you so much for your reply. Have sorted out TRN issue. MA said not normal practice to provide to client but said he will send it tomorrow and he will contact immigration tomorrow as well as 236 days today. I can only wait and let you know what happens now.

Hi Everyone,

 

I have a question... If someone has applied for 186 visa and wants to go on couple of weeks leave without pay, will that have any impact on the application given its already in progress? The 457 visa is still valid so there is no bridging visa needed.

Its shouldn't be a problem as long as you have a valid 457 visa on. Another thing is that its only consider before applying for ENS 186 as thoes days doesn't count for completion of 24 months working with employer on 457. visa
