Post after CO allocation

Hi all..
I got CO then sent medical and police report on first week of march 2009. Then i could not get any info. I applied through agent and he is saying to wait. As i have assigned agent, can i contact myself to DIAC by phone or email?
How do DIAC inform regarding pre visa grant letter, its by emil or courier?
I am from HR country, CSL, 175 category, paper applicant.
Thanks in advance

Yep, waiting seems about right advice.

There's nothing to stop you from contacting DIAC and provision on the web site for that.

Do make sure you have your application reference number from the agent if you did not receive it direct but also understand that everytime someone contacts immi because progress is not as quick as hoped, someone at immi, possibly the COs are obliged to respond and all that effectively does is absorb some of their time that would be better used in processing applications.

Patience is a virtue.

If you look at the economic situation in Australia, it is getting worse. The economic stimulus packages haven't had the effect the government would have liked.

The government will be under a lot of pressure to control unemployment, which could be having an affect on immigration applications.

The government was also a little lax on the way they handled the recent boat loads of asylum seekers, where Horward was a lot more stricter. Immigration always becomes a sensitive issue when unemployment starts to rise.

I don't know what direct affect this has on skilled visa applications, but I am sure it is something which the government is closely monitoring.

Yep, most organisations looking to employ are looking for someone that is legally available to work with a matter of weeks/months, whatever their interviewing/selection/appointment etc. process is.

You could keep an eye on the job market via web sites, SEEK - Australia's no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site or www.careeone.com.au etc. and attempt to get a feel on how many vacancies are about, what fields, what organisations are looking for and then in your particular field if you see some organisations constatntly after people, it could represent either that there are shortages, the organisation has high turn-over for whatever reason or in fact dummie vacancies get listed - possibly a way recruitment agencies establish a pool of people looking for work.

To organisations that have what appear to be suitable jobs, you could mention that you hope your visa application approval is imminent, that you have been requested to submit police/health checks and that they have been submitted a month ago - if you applied online have you used the tracking facility immi provide?.

But could also be that you'll have difficulty getting employment, the global economic situation likely to be prolonged and thus you need to consider what is your Plan B?

Congratulations star,
But unfortunately the end may not be a pot of gold at end of a rainbow in the lucky country.

Even if you are able to get work on arrival, keeping it in grim economic conditions may be another matter and so you need to give some thought to where support will come from in the event of no work - no one has a crystal ball on how bad economic/employment conditions could get nor how long they'll last.

Gut feel of a few people is that better days will be a few years away at best.
Meanwhile Australian government will have generated huge budgeting deficits with massive interest bills to be paid for many years and that means less government services/employment and higher taxing of the employed, less disposable income and thus erosion of natural stimulus.
