I've got some response from Parramatta office today..

"Thank you for your e-mail.

The nomination and visa applications have not yet been allocated to a case officer. The processing time for
ENS 186/RSMS 187 applications is 6 to 8 months. Please note however that with the changes in systems and legislation,
we still have a large backlog of paper applications. At the moment, we are not in a position to adhere to the previously
advised processing standards.

You will be contacted once the application has been allocated to a case officer.

Thank you for your patience. "

Thanks J3ss,

The email just came in without any advice that our application had been allocated a CO. In the immi website, my application is still even "application received".

I think they've now progressed towards Sep-Oct applications.

cheers,
Reydz

This was posted today on another immi forum:

Hi all

Been reading this thread for a while but never posted.

I thought i'd give the non DRC people a bit of good news. I just got a CO assigned tonight, i applied back i August so its taken almost 7 months!!! Hopefully they are starting to get things sorted now.

FYI I applied using a Labour Agreement if anyone is in the same boat.


A small bit of hope for us August applicants!!

Hi Eyba,

I'm not got sure if I got you right.

You mentioned "lodged a nomination in August that hasn't been approved"

Firstly, it is the employer that lodges a nomination, not the PR applicant. Secondly, if the nomination hasn't been approved, check with your employer. IMHO this stage is most critical and I think must be ticked off prior to lodging an e-application. Check if you employer got the "green" light from DIAC.

As for my case, the nomination (Employer-University of Queensland) was lodged 13 Sep, and got approved 4 Oct. I had to constantly check with my employer if they had got the nomination approval. Only then I lodged my PR application by 8 Oct, budged DIAC for confimation of valid application which I got by 15 Oct.

Whilst i had not gone through an MA, but we had all the requirements ready. This includes all medical checks (Medibank), character (both Aus and Phils) and skills (Non-requirement, position nominated-Academic). As such the application was near equivalent to a decision-ready case.

Hope this helps.

Nope, you understood correctly.....there are a few of us whose employers submitted nominations in August and we have yet to hear anything....no case officer...nothing. I will have been waiting 7 months on the 3rd.

Ridiculously frustrating....even more so I imagine for DRC applicants.

Hi reydzicemmanuel,

Yeah still waiting for the nomination! Ha.

I have checked with my employer and have enquired directly with DIAC and there is nothing. I will not lodge my application until this is approved.

There seems to be a small pocket of lodgements mid to late August that are not processed. I'm not sure what the deal is but all of my documents disappeared from the online system, however DIAC advised me they are still there.

I have been forced to now request a further 457 just in case I am not approved.
