NSW State Sponsorship Halt 5th August

I received this E-mail today from NSW, My documents reached on 5th August 2013


Please advice or suggest on this....

Did anyone else recieved the same.., Did anyone called NSW?
This news is confirmed its on there home page also, please comment


190 Application Received - Important Notice
From
bizmigration.enquiries@business.nsw.gov.au

Mr XXXXXX


Dear Mr XXXXXXX

I refer to your recent application seeking State Nomination under the Skilled-Nominated (subclass 190) Visa received on 5/08/2013. Please note the following important information:

On 05 August 2013 the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) advised that invitations for certain occupational groups in the points-tested migration program will be issued on a pro-rata basis over the 2013/14 program year.

This advice means that it will not be possible for NSW to nominate any applicants from these occupations for a 190 visa.

Occupations impacted by this policy change include:

Other Engineering Professional - 2339
Software Engineer, Analyst Programmer & Developer Programmer - 2613


DIAC has advised that the national occupational ceiling will remain the same but the pro-rata approach means invitations will be staggered and issued by DIAC to selected individuals over the course of 2013/14 in twice monthly occupation rounds.

NSW appreciates that this announcement will concern many applicants who have already applied for nomination to date. We are seeking further clarification from DIAC on how this announcement will affect nomination applications that are currently being assessed by our department.

We will not be able to provide any further guidance to you until DIAC provides further information.

We assure you that we will be updating our website with further guidance as soon as possible. Please continue to check our website. We will not be able to provide any further information by phone or email.

We would encourage you not to withdraw your application until we are able to provide more specific information.

Regards

NSW Trade and Investment

This is also on the NSW website with more occupations listed:

State Migration Plan - NSW Trade & Investment: Business in NSW

It's not clear at this point how they will manage the remaining places, and whether those remaining places will go to people who have been nominated but not yet invited to apply for a 190 visa, or will go to people who applied for a 189 visa. We're all trying to figure out the answers, but DIAC has said nothing officially yet, so we're getting word from the states only.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Alok -

What visa? received by who? DIAC? NSW?

At this point it would appear that NSW can make no further nominations for these occupations, unless DIAC makes some sort of a special deal for those who have nominations lodged but not yet approved.

Hi Alok -

It's not clear yet how they will handle applications received but not yet decided, or approved nominations that have not yet been issued an invitation. If the wording on the NSW announcement is to be believed, DIAC has put in place an immediate halt to the ability of states to nominate for these occupations, which would tend to indicate that your application may not be able to be processed.

Unfortunately DIAC has made no announcement themselves yet, so we're all still guessing as to the details and what will become of applications already in the pipeline like yours.

My suggestion: if you're in one of the listed occupation groups, you may want to explore other visa options in case you're unable to proceed with state sponsorship.

Best,

Mark Northam

NSW State Sponsorship Halt 5th August

Hi,

I have already received an invitation to lodge a Skilled - Nominated (Subclass 190) (Permanent) visa application nominated/sponsored by NSW Trade & Investment.

I just want to know if this new change will create any problem for me to apply for DIAC? Please advice.

Thanks
Vijesh

Hi Vijesh -

The way I read the announcement, you're OK, as the state was able to nominate you and DIAC issued you an invitation as a result of that acknowledgement. That being said, I would keep an eye on the news in case that's not the case.

Best,

Mark Northam
