Alternative Priority Processing Timescales

Recommended Posts

Guest gmac

Group 1


If you have not applied under GSM eg ENS, RSMS you will receive priority over GSM.


Applications will be processed according to ENS/RSMS Service Standards. This means that you are likely to receive a visa sometime in the future.


Group 2


Applications who have been nominated and included on an SMP.


Applications will be finalised 12 months from date of lodgement. Only problem is no-one has a date of lodgement because we don't know when the SMP's are to be released.


Group 3


Applications from people who have nominated an occupation on the new Skilled Occupation List (SOL) - Schedule 3 in effect from 1 July 2010.


Applications lodged ON OR AFTER 1 July 2010 will be finalised 18 to 24 months from date of lodgement.


Applications lodged BEFORE 1st July in date order starting with October 2007


Group 4


Everyone else who is not in Groups 1- 3.


Everyone in Group 4 will be processed according to no service standards. That is because they don't exist for GSM. Therefore you already have gained priority due to waiting times as in their direction above, but DIAC are not going to do anything about your visa. Sorry, no refunds either. Rules are rules very sorry.
