It's been very quiet so fingers crossed this is the start of a new surge of approvals! Wonder if they've given up on February now and started to prioritise March....?

I suggest you speak to your MA. They cannot refuse a nomination without providing the reason.

Andy, this is awful news - sorry to hear it.

Each rejection has to come with a formal reason why - it would be great if you could provide us with what the reason was for your rejection? Thanks

I'm very sorry to hear that. Last year exactly before Xmas we got the same news.We decided to withdraw and apply again.

The reason of nomination refusal was incorrect training benchmark which was because of wrong information from MA.

Anyway I hope the best things happen to you  out of the blue...

Just to add to this....

When a nomination is refused two letters are issued:

1. Invitation to comment on information for ENS visa - Nomination Refused. I understand this is the letter you will have received and it wont contain the reason for refusal.

2. Notification of Refusal of an Application. This will be send directly to your employer and MA (if you have one). This letter will confirm reason for refusal. Some company's may be reluctant to share this letter due to sensitive data however it will contain the exact reason for your refusal.

^ That's my understanding of the process. If you speak to Company/MA they will be able to confirm the reason.

Good luck 🍀 I hope you find a solution.

Hi Andy,

There is definitely the reason they refused your application. I suggest you to speak to your MA.

Our first application got refused in May 2018 and there were some financial reasons to that and we decided to reapply.

Best of luck!

Immigration said our training was wrong.So for example the training cost for managers, or people based on other countries also were included which is not correct.

I am feeling sorry to hear this, my MA advised that with training benchmark you should provide the proof that, training is provided to australian citizen or permenant resident, it really helped me.
