PR visa Delays by DIBP

Hi,

I have applied for Skilled nominated (190) visa and after clearing my medicals, my case officer emailed me that "since there are only a limited places left for this program year 2013-2014 under skilled visa category, the application may take a longer processing time to be finalised and so can't predict the actual time frame".

Does anyone know when the DIBP will resume finalising Visas applied under skilled visa category.

Most likely 1 July 2014, when the new financial year starts.

Thanks for your reply.

But this is ridiculous. All of a sudden, DIBP sent a message and it has spoiled all my plans and expectations. They should inform applicants before they spend a lot of money as a application fee that they can't process further application this year. I have already quit job now expecting departure this month. DIBP is becoming more and more mad and an irresponsible agency. Nothing else to say.

Never, ever a good idea to quit your job before you have a visa in hand. You can never predict how long they'll take.

You don't know if your visa will even be approved, so quitting your job on the assumption a) that you will be granted a visa, and b) that it would be this month, is not a good idea.

DIBP can't 100% predict if/when they will reach the quota since that would depend on the quality of the applications received. So they provide an email when it's getting close so you are aware that it may not be approved until the next financial year.
