General Skill Migration - Change in ASCO Code

Hi All,
I am an IT professional working in Data Warehousing domain. I have applied my 175 visa on 14 May 2008 with ASCO code 2231-17 (Application Programmer). ASCO code 2231-17 is not in MODL List and at that time Data Warehousing was not in SOL list.

A week later Data Warehousing was added to MODL list with ASCO Code 2231-79.

Last month I have applied for ASCO Code 2231-79 and got it.
Is it possible to change ASCO code in my current PR application? If yes, what is the process?
Any idea, how much time my current application will take?

Any suggestions !!

Thank you for your time.I look forward hearing from you.

Make a post lodgement enquiry to immi - you'll find the email address under applying for the visa section of that visa.

What's an ASCO code? Should someone/we put up a thread and put in all abbreviations we can think of (immi wise)? I know that, for example, ASCO won't apply to everyone, but just so people can figure out if someone is talking about stuff related to their own application so quickly.

What's MODL???

Does immi have a page which clarifies abbraviations that we could link?

eh...just a thought though, no emergency =)

Could be a little wrong kitten but something like
ASCO - Australian Standard or Skills Category of Occupations
MODL - Migration Occupation [in] Demand List

But once you delve into the Skilled stream of immigration, have a look at just about any visa and then the eligibility section, the abbreviations and terms become quickly understood.

We've got Sticky #4 re recent government/immi info on processing priorities and also #6 has links to various immi sections - a little messy and intent is to tidy it up sometime!

We could add what all the abbreviations are but we'd just really be duplicating what's on the immi site.
