Viisumiprosessin etenemisodotus muuttuikin yhtäkkiä astetta jännittävämmäksi. Kun pitkään näytti siltä että käsittelyajat venyvät ja venyvät, ASPC:n (Adelaide Skilled Processing Centre) automaattimaili vastaakin nykyään kiinnostavia tietoja (loppupuolen korostus minun):
ASPC APPLICATION ALLOCATION INFORMATION
On 17 December 2008 the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship announced changes to the way General Skilled Migration applications will be allocated and processed. Details can be found on the DIAC website at: http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/whats-new.htm#j
As a result of this announcement from 1 January 2009 applications for General Skilled Migration will be strictly allocated and processed in the following priority order:
1. Applications with a successful State & Territory Nomination (until all applications have been allocated); and then
2. Applications where the nominated occupation is on the Critical Skills List (until all applications have been allocated); then
3. Applications where the nominated occupation is on the Migration Occupations in Demand List (until all applications have been allocated); then
4. All other remaining applications
This affects all applications lodged before and after 1 January 2009, both paper lodged or electronically lodged. Applications which were already allocated to case officers before 1 January 2009 are un-affected and will be processed as usual to finalisation.
Applications are now being allocated as follows:
State & Territory Nominated Applications:
Subclass 134, 136, 137, 175, 176, 475, 487, 495, 885 and 886 applications (processed by the ASPC and where a successful State or Territory Nomination is held) will all be allocated to case officers for assessment by 13 February 2009.
Eli jos tuota luen oikein niin meidän State Sponsored-hakijoiden pitäisi saada Case Officer helmikuun 13. päivään mennessä eli ihan hetikohta! Jännää!
