You will definately get ur PR cz DIAC has planned to grant around 10,000 cat 5 co's this programm year . As they start granting from jan 12 so its around 1700 cat 5 visa per month. Don't worry mate ur turn will come soon if not in this program year then in next program year( after July 12) . Fingers closedxxxxxxx :)

What worries me is are the 10,000 cat 5's only for on-shore??? When, oh when are they going to start with us off-shore cat 5?? Come on DIAC, let's have some good news for us off-shore bods.:ssign2:

I am 885 onshore application submitted 22 April 09, should I consider Victorian state sponsorship NOW? if I get this sponsorship (its website says up to 12 weeks wait), will I need to submit a whole new fresh 886 application, and NEW FEES ? Could you please advise?

 

Or I'd better wait for my 885 turns, which I believe is near.

 

Much thanks to all Cat 5ers.

i cant see any where written officialy tht only 10k priorty 5 visa will be granted . that was all expected figures . moreover if u believe this statement it says 10 k granted , it doesnt say 10 k allocated . allocations will be much more then 10 k.I personlly dont believe in this figure of 10 k , it ws projected at the time when they hvent processed the priority 5 processing. so what i believe is the will run through atleast june 2009 applications by the end of june 2012.. ANyone who has applied before july 2009 shoul be confident of getting CO in next 3.5 months. good luck .

I would have said that too, but DIAC are making truly wonderful progress; and to be honest, unless they are planning mass redundancies there, CO would be left 'twiddeling their thumbs' so to speak. I know, come July they will have a fresh batch to process, but I really believe that the numbers will be considerably, and I mean considerably less. So, what to do? I think that they will commence processing Cat 5 off-shores round about April/May 2012. Oz still needs skilled people, and they are now crying out for cooks etc - as I have recently read on a news item. All our skills, are still very much in demand. It is not all about the mining industry! That in my opinion is somewhat of, dare I say it, 'fad'. There you have it. The Chinese Economy will slow and thus mining jobs will be less appealing. This whole 'fad' actually only serves Investors well. Countries will have to learn, that a Quick Buck, ie. large stock market influences, which by the way, change minute by minute, can have dire consequences. A country is built on tomorrows, not just tomorrow!

Things are going to get slow down for 2009 applicant as there were considerably high no of application lodged in 2009 in my opinion, most of 2008 were already cleared, what we are seeing was leftover one who somehow got stuck with priority processing. Add me in Timeline :) Hope for good though, they might clear all 2009 application this year :)

Great, how many days do you have to wait until your medical examination date upon booking an appointment?

Hello there,

 

I was wondering if there is anybody in the same boat or whether any light can be shed on our situation.

 

My brother made a 175 visa application way back in May 2009. The occupation code used at time of application was 2231-79. We've had no news ever since.

 

The whole thing has been put on a back burner for a while but its always in the backs of all our minds just what their chances might be. We're really eager to find out if there is anyone out there in the same boat as us waiting to hear, or whether they've had any news already, whether negative or positive?

 

Its a bit depressing to have put so much effort into the process to find that they are no closer to a decision. Does anybody know of a way that we maybe able to get a little higher on the list? It seems as though we are lost in the system somewhere. :sad:

 

I would love any advice from anyone out there, it would really be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

 

All the best


TRA 27/07/10. IELTS 25/09/10. WA SS Applied 28/12/10. WA SS approved 11/02/2011. Visa 176 applied 16/03/2011. CO assigned 30/04/2011. Medicals 29/06/2011. 176 Visas GRANTED! 2/9/2011 :rolleyes: Emigrated to Perth on 19th October 2013.
