Is "Off list" occupations on new SMP of South Australia - now considered as Cat 3?

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

 

I just noticed that my occupation have showed up on the recent SMP of SA as "off-list" occupation. Does it mean that SA finally treated all applicants who were granted state sponosrhip back in 2009 and we will get normal priority? Pls confirm me if you are sure, that we are now moved from new Cat 5 to new Cat 3. If so, this is SO BRILLIANT NEWS, isn't it??!! :wub:I was feeling so sick having the state sponsorship of SA and be in the lowest priority all the time!

 

This is the quote from DIAC web site:

Applications from people who are applying under the RSMS are processed as priority group 1. Those applying under the ENS are processed as priority group 2.

Applications from people who are nominated by a state or territory government agency with a nominated occupation that is specified on the state or territory's state migration plan receive the third highest level of priority processing..... As a transitional arrangement, applicants who were nominated by a state or territory government for an 'off-list' occupation prior to the implementation of state migration plans will also receive processing under priority group 3.
