Part of the email from DIAC

 

"2011-2012 Migration Program Year

 

On 10 May 2011, the Minister announced the Migration Program for 2011-2012 tobe set at 185,000 places, 72,460 of which are allocated to the GSM program.

 

Taking into consideration current application rates and the overall number ofGSM places available the department expects to commence processing of somepriority group 5 applications in this program year.

 

Once commenced, processing of priority group 5 applications will take place indate of lodgment order, after all applications of a higher priority have beenallocated for assessment.

 

As required by the Direction, priority will continue to be given to GSMapplications in higher priority groups which will affect the overall number ofpriority group 5 applications assessed. It is therefore anticipated that manypriority group 5 applicants will still have a long wait for visa processing."

13000 cat 5 applicants? Can this be trusted? Does anyone know how many are likely to be before June 2009?

Hi Everyone,

 

We got the Diac email. 176 family sponsored, March 2009, offshore

 

I am wondering that as our surname is Dale, if the email was sent out alphabetically then maybe that could be the reason we got it before some others.

 

Good luck to you all :smile:

I have just emailed aspc.processing@immi.gov.au and the attachment at the top of the returned email pretty much says exactly the same as the Diac email almost word for word, which means this may not be a special email unfortunately - but hey you never know :smile:

Hey guys I think that the email is trying to inform the oldest applicants to "wake"up and get ready for possible processing. I wonder if anyone who sends a blank email gets the new update? I think there will be emails sent to applicants informing them specifically how long before they have before a case officer gets assigned especially pre Sept 2007 Onshore applicants. It will be interesting to see whether they will process the Offshore cap and ceased ones who refused to accept the refund of the VAC.

 

Interesting times await. All the best to everyone who have been waiting for sooo long!
