Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme

Hello,
I am already in Australia and working for a while with this company before applying for the RSMS visa.

My office has send my application for approval of the employer nomination for the visa VC 857 Regional sponsored Migration Scheme(RSMS). I have attached my application form 47es and documents with it. As it allows to send both employer nomination documents and employee documents togehter.

I was wondering how long does the employer nomination takes for the RSMS visa and then grant of the visa to the employee? To make the process quicker I have applied for the employee visa grant with the employer nomination.

According to new priority list ENS & RSMS are at the highest rank, but what is the timeframe to be employer nominated and get the visa granted?

I read somewhere maximum time to get the RSMS visa is 3 months but was wondering if someone on forum can share their experience?

Thanks in advance. Will be waiting for quick response.

Regards

Babar

There're probably not too many prior RSMS applicants who come to the forum Babar but yes the ES visas do have top priority by Immi.

I've read of the ENS visas being granted in as quick as a week but that being an exception with perhaps a month or so being expected as more commonplace if employers and employees are both considered eligible.

The RSMS has a two stage employer approval process in place with the Regional Certifying required and if anything that may make the Immi action more of an endorsement though they will still check all other eligibility criteria.

If your employer has already had the regional certification done, I'd reckon with everything being OK you should see a grant within the three month period, but if they are yet to do the RC, then whatever time that takes will need to also be allowed for.

I have got the Regional Certification and with that certificate my employer is lodging the nomination and my application. I am working in local government QLD and my employer has already done few RSMS applications in past.

I have got my skills assessment, degrees, IELTS, all police clearances, medical, passport, birth certificate attached to application and I hope everything they require from my end is certified & complete with application.
I hope this should help and speed up the process. I am already on the Visa VC 485 Temporary Resident and it is Qualifying visa for RSMS.

Thanks for your words.

Regards

Babar

Hello Wanderer,

My company applied for my RSMS visa nomination and under one month time they got the nomination grant letter for me.
It is a good news.
I applied for on-shore RSMS and as well I am working for same employer for more than a year now.
I indeed attached my part of application of the employee (form 47ES) along employer nomination (form 1054) which they actually did acknowledge and deducted the fee of RSMS visa from my account that very day.
I am wondering if you have any clue now how long will it take to have an CO allocated and officer grant the visa? As you also know the RSMS & ENS have the highest priority in the priority list, so what sort of time frame should I consider?
Should I hope that they will finalise the case before the end of this financial year ends i.e. 30th June 2010?
Thanks in advance for your words of wisdom.

Cheers

Babar

That Immi have acknowledged the position as being approved do you?
As I've indicated earlier, with all documentation OK [ and seeing it is a local government authority familiar with the RSMS procedure ] it should be smooth sailing.
It will only be held up because of the end of the financial year if in fact numbers are close to annual budget.

An the only other factor is that Immi staff will have various other involvements in being prepared for the changes that may be implemented on July 01 if all is ready.

Yes, I mean I got a letter from employer today which Immi send them yesterday having a subject "Approval of a Nominated Position as an Approved Appointment (RSMS)" underneath which they have said nominated position as an approved appointment and now nominee should lodge his PR asap if has not already done.

I also have previous email from my employer which Immi send to them at the time of lodgement of nomination approval stating that they take one week time from CO been allocated to the case. Now I am waiting for the CO to be allocated asap so I can get the visa process completed successfully on my application.

Cheers
