Hi Guys ,
My employer did 187 visa nomination on 28/08/12& received ack on 10/09/12. No news of nomination approval :-(
Then I applied my visa on 5th of November , didn't get the Ack yet.
Any ideas? Or anyone else in similar position ?

Rsms 187

Hi all,

I have completed my diploma in community services and got my skills assessed by ACWA in 2011 as a welfare worker, the ANZSCO skill level for welfare worker is 1 which says a degree is required but i am just a diploma graduate, am i eligible for an RSMS 187 visa under welfare worker.

Hi Supreets2100
I think if your AnZSCO code under which you are applying says you need to be a graduate, then that's what you need to be. Sometimes it also says you can compensate for lack of qualification if you have a stipulated number of years of work experience. Read the AnZSCO code criteria carefully.
Cheers

Hi albs
Is the akl email that you received the next day an automatic system generated email or one which has been sent by a person with name and fax details and specifying the number of months it takes to process(said it would take 5-7months in my case)
If it is an akl email sent by a person then that's really good for you. There seems to be no standard at all.....it seems to vary quite a bit.
Cheers

Hello Kay66,

Mine was an automated response. So have you heard anything about your nomination approval ?I asked with my employer and they said they got RCB approved but no response from immi about nomination approval apart from the nomination acknowledgment .So it is going to be 2 months since lodged my 187 application. I had 190 nomination approved as well, since I had my 187 application in just 3days prior to my 190 invitation on skillselect. and now my skill select shows status lodged so I have to wait for my 187 :(

Hi Albs
I have got RCB approval too but no approval yet from DIAC for the employer nomination. I too am anxious to receive the employer nomination. Hope that happens soon. Have you uploaded all the required documents for your application?
Cheers

Hi Albs
I have uploaded most of the documents too. Mine was not a Decision ready application. I think it takes longer for a non DRC application. But I am in no hurry really. I rather save the 3-4 grand it would cost me to apply through an agent. You see I am a NZ citizen and I work for the NT government and I think it should not be too complicated. But I would definitely like to know if you have any updates to your application. Because I think you have applied around the same time as me....
Cheers

Hi Guys,

Here is my timeline... FYI I'm living in Adelaide and I think my application is being processed at the Paramatta office ... or Melbourne.

Nomination lodged with DIAC - 11 September 2012
RSMS (187) Direct Entry Non Decision Ready visa application lodged with DIAC - 11 September 2012
Acknowledgement of valid nomination received - 12 September 2012
Acknowledgement of valid visa application received - 12 September 2012
Bridging visa granted - 12 September 2012
Nomination lodged with RCB - 10 October 2012
Nomination approved by RCB - 13 November 2012

My migration agent has provided me with the TRN numbers and passwords for the eVisa site so I can monitor the status of my application. For the nomination, a number of relevant documents and the RCB advice was uploaded and attached. When I logged in to view the nomination, I could see all of the attachments. However, back in mid-December all of the attachments disappeared. I couldn't think of any reason why they would just disappear. I had my employer contact DIAC and they were informed that if the documents were attached, then there is no need to worry... So I could only assume perhaps they have an internal file and the attachments are there?

I am curious ... has this happened to anyone else? When you log into the eVisa site, are your documents/attachments missing??

BTW - the status of my nomination and visa application is still just 'Application received"

I was just having a look at the Skilled Migration Visa Processing Times website here:

immi.gov.au/about/charter.../visas/8.0.htm

And according to this site, RSMS visas are under Priority Group 1 and the processing time for SkillSelect (subclass 187) is 6 months. So my application was lodged on 11 September meaning my visa might be approved in just over 1 month from now! So that is exciting ... fingers crossed

I'm interested to hear everyone else's story / updates!

Cheers guys and I will keep my fingers crossed for each and every one of you that your visas get processed quickly!

Hi Sonicblue82
Wish you luck and hope the action begins!
I think you would hear from the visa officer soon.
Interesting that you have not rec'd a nomination approval and it's been 5 months. But that's what the lady at IMMI told me when I called her up. She said there is no service
standard for granting approval.
I had problems with uploading my spouse and child's documents. Here again DIAC confirmed that they are currently experiencing heaps of issues with uploading documents. So I have held off the uploading till a visa officer is appointed. But I do remember that when I submitted the application, it said 'application received' and when I started uploading documents it changed to ' processing'.
Anyway please keep us posted on your progress. It is good to know that you are so close to the finish. All the best!
Cheers

Hi Kay66,

Cheers - I hope to hear from my MA or the CO soon with good news! It's been 5 days short of 5 months since my nomination and visa were lodged together with DIAC. The nomination was lodged with the RCB after, but was quickly approved and the RCB advice was sent in to the DIAC to support my nomination.

What I do know is that once a CO is assigned, they will review the nomination and if everything is all in order and no further documentation is needed, they will approve the nomination and grant the visa right then and there, as there would be no reason to further delay the application. I am confident that all required documentation has been sent in, so fingers crossed it all gets approved soon! Still puzzles me that my attachments for the nomination are missing. They were there. I have a screen shot of when they were visible on 5 December but it was shortly after that that they disappeared. But I've been told its nothing to worry about, so perhaps just a glitch in their system. I read on one of the forums that this happened to someone else, so that makes me feel a bit better! I'll keep everyone posted on any progress... And good luck to you as well Kay66!
