Dear Friends

Myself Sam, registered in this website so that I can share the information I have gained while applying for 485 visa.On 8th Feb 2010 the immigration department revoked the CSL and made changes to priority processing for certain visa sub classes, these priority processing is governed by section
"s45 " which states priority is exempt for 485GSM visas and will be processed in the order of application being received.

Therefore migrants who applied for GSM 485 visa after 8Th feb 2010 should expect delays in their process of application by the immigration department(expected more than 6 months).Pls be aware that there is no priority in granting TR applications whetther the application is CSL or under general scheme.

I couldnt apply 885 visa because of longer time frame involved in availing skills assessment.Engineers Australia skills assessment currently requires 16 weeks to verify documents and award relevant certification. So please apply well in advance or you will end up like me wasting time in 485 visa.

Serving Australia by contributing my skills in defense has been a burning desire and it pains to see ,the aimbition has been forced to delay by my irresponsibility and negligence to organise time and accomplish tasks.

Aussies always fight hard to achieve rather than complaining,so we should all persist and keep positive.Remember to serve and love Australia,accept it or not,she is our mother too. We have come, asking her shade to develop us.

To those great soldiers who died serving ANZAC and in Afghanistan.They are my heroes too.

Advance Australia Fair
