caznphil - you submitted your visa application just before me - you're on 8 weeks this week. I'm on 7.

 

I'm really surprised there hasn't been any movement. Have you had the nomination approved?

Hi all,

 

My timeline so far...

 

Nomination lodged 02/03/2010

Nomination receipt acknowledged 04/03/2010

121 lodged 30/03/2010

121 receipt acknowledged 31/03/2010

 

All of the above were lodged at Parramatta through my agent....

 

Heard nothing so far! Worried as my sponsor is a small company and issues like training etc may arise. Fingers crossed!

Hey solinsyd... Welcome to the PiO ENS thread...

 

I've added your details in to the spreadsheet:

You from the UK? What's your occupation? Did you send you medicals/police checks too? I'll add those to the sheet.

 

Cheers,

Hi there,

 

Info requested is below:

 

Country - UK

Occupation - Solicitor

Police checks were sent with the 121

Medicals - relied upon medicals sent in a previous 885, however I'll be getting new ones in a couple of weeks as the process is taking longer and longer... and longer....

 

Cheers!

Latest from Pazza -

 

Due to the demand driven nature of the program, the Permanent Skilled Entry network is continuing to receive large numbers of employer nominations and visa applications.

This means that some applications being received through the NSW Centre of Excellence may take some time to be allocated to a case officer for assessment.

Please be assured that all issues surrounding processing backlogs have been appropriately escalated.

You will be contacted by a case officer within 2 working days of the employer nomination and/or visa application being allocated, with either an outcome for decision-ready cases or a request for additional information or documents.

Until a case is allocated, we are unable to provide you with advice regarding processing timeframes.

We apologise for all inconveniences caused as a result of the delays in allocation.

Please note that the published service standards for ENS/RSMS cases is 5 months (ETA countries) and 7 months (non-ETA countries). Timeframes for processing an application vary from one case to another, depending on the individual circumstances of each applicant . The NSW PSE team are committed to providing you with an decision on your application within the published service standards.

Clients are requested to explore other pathways, such as the 457 temporary business visa, for all urgent cases where the nominating employer needs the applicant to commence working in the position within the published service standards.

Was hoping to have my 121 sorted by August - due for a jolly back to the Mother Country and I thought I'd activate it then.

We got ours 1st June

 

Our detailed time line

 

-Employer submitted for nomination number 15th December 2009

-Number recieved 11th Jan 2010

- All paperwork collated with certified stuff and police checks

-856 onshore submitted by hand to Melbourne business section @ Immi office, 23rd march - told i would be emailed in 7 days

-I called day 8 to say i hadnt heard and then was emailed 2 days later by My case officer to acknowlege the app.

-Didnt hear anything so emailed 4th May asking if there was anything else i needed to submit as i hadnt heard. Reply from CO saying not all medicals were there. Few phonecalls back and forth - my sons and mine from 457 were converted for the PR app, but hubby's was only for 457, so he had to repeat it and it had to be with the officer by 14th May.............It got there 13th may!

-Case officer went off sick. 24th May emailed by another case officer and was told they they just had to merge some docs and would finalise ASAP.

 

Visa granted 1st June.

 

My advice -

 

If you havent heard from the office within 10 days of submitting your application, get on the phone to them and find out whats going on. Especially since they take the money out straight away !!!

 

If you havent heard after 4 weeks of acknowledgement letter, phone them again to find out the status.

 

DO pester them..........

Have you not had a notification email that your application has been recieved? If so have a look at who sent it to you.......most likely it the person who is your case officer.

 

If not, please get on the phone to the office youve sent it to and ask where you acknowledgement is.......you should have received one by now
