It appears the hold on invitations would extend to the 189 based on the way it is worded. It is unclear as to how family-sponsored 489's will be handled, but I would expect that if 189's are on "hold" for these occupations, the same would be true for 489's. All we can do is wait to see what DIAC comes up with next while they "work it out".

Best,

Mark Northam

Thanks Mark,

We would be eagerly waiting for your interpretation of these new rules when they are released by DIAC. I think by next week we should get an insight about new rules of State Sponsorship (new as well as cases on hold) and 189.
Please do post any new information as soon as you have them as all clients who are caught in these new turmoil are anxiously waiting for your words.


Regards,
Achin

Will do, Achin. Hopefully DIAC and the states will let us know what the new "rules" are so we all can know how to best proceed.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your all helpful info.

Can I email NSW requesting to speed up my SS application which was lodged on 29th July? I know it won't take so long to approve as I have applied as System Admin. However, my visa expiry date is 6th September. Please advise whether I have to wait or shoot on the dark.....
Thanks in advance

Hi -

Probably doesn't hurt to ask - you might ask them for "priority processing" as your current visa is expiring. Chances of getting them to approve this? Hard to say. You might also check the NSW Skilled Migration site for any requirements for priority processing.

Best,

Mark

Hi Mark,

I really appreciate you response.

I am thinking to write an email replying the acknowledge letter specifying the visa detail. However, I am thinking of writing very polite and impressive way showing up the situation rather than requesting to hurry up for approval process. I will keep you posted on this. One thing I would like to add on this post is, is someone can estimate of my application approval as a System Admin applied on 29th of July and received on 30th. I got exactly two weeks to visa expiry. Any Mercy on me?

Thank and just like to mention that you are really helpful.

Cheers

Hi Urn -

If I were you I would be looking into other visa options if you want to remain in Australia while awaiting an invitation - even if you received an approval today, 2 weeks is a very short amount of time to put together everything needed to make a visa application, and in some cases NSW skilled migration's processing times recently have been measured in months, not weeks.

Nonetheless, a nice letter wouldn't hurt - and just might help if you're extremely lucky!

Best,

Mark Northam

Hey Mark,

Hope you are doing good. Any news or information about the State Process, any clue about when the new rules are coming ? Did you get any sneak peak of these new rules.

We are all waiting with finger crossed.

Thanks,
Achin
