Dear mahattaya

 

Note that this application was a onshore application which is processed differently to offshore applications.

 

To me it does look like offshore applications are being processed by date of application.

 

Don't lose hope the first two people on this list have now got CO.

 

:biggrin:

I just rang to ASPC and hear that my application MIGHT BE allocated CO within 4 weeks. My current category is 3 and lodged my application on July 2008 for 175 was cat 6.

 

Additionally, he said cat 3 is now treated as the 2nd priority due to there is no SMP at the moment as we are aware of it and they are doing but not completing clearly new processing priority change stuffs and get it in practice, hence we are not hearing more news than expected.

 

At this stage, I doubt one thing.

 

I preloaded my family and my medical check on Feb 2009 and finalized on April 2009.

If I have CO on upcoming Aug, Would CO request new medical check? Or just accept it ? I really hate spending another money and time to REDO it......

 

what do you mean by "doing but not completing"?

Seems like onshore applications are way ahead. Brisbane processing is very quick compared to Adelaide. Within Cat 3, looks like onshore applications are prioritized.

 

Based on what I've read in this forum's threads, there are more onshore approvals than offshore CO allocations!

Hi GG

 

Would it be worth highlighting the ones on your list who are onshore and offshore applicants???

 

Just a thought!?

 

You are doing a great job by the way.

 

Cheers
