Cool Processing time notification mail

Hi All,

I used to send a blank email to visa processing centres and I get a return mail with the information relating to what applications are currently being considered by case officers along with the lodged dates.

But, that mail address doesn't have any updated information after 07/01/2011. Could you let me know whether there are any other mail addresses which I can use to get the information regarding the applications which are currently being processed?

Thanks & Regards

GENERAL SKILLED MIGRATION
PROCESSING INFORMATION
This is an automated e-mail response which provides updated information on
processing of applications for General Skilled Migration (GSM). This
information is updated fortnightly.
Last updated 7 January 2011.
Please do not send enquiries or reply to this email address as this
mailbox is not monitored. Contact details for GSM are listed below.

Current Processing Dates
If your application date has recently come into our current processing
date range you should allow at least 6 weeks to enable a case officer to
complete the initial assessment. Please refrain from sending requests for
an update on the status of your application within this 6 week period.
Priority Processed Applications
Under the priority processing direction we are giving priority in
allocation to applications with a nominated occupation that appears in an
active State Migration Plan - Priority Group 2.
Priority Group 3 applications are allocated only where all Priority Group
2 have already been allocated. Priority Group 4 cases will be allocated
once all Priority Group 3 are allocated.
To determine which priority group your application falls into please read
the information on the department’s website at:
General Skilled Migration
For further information regarding State Migration Plans please visit the
department’s website at:

Processing Times
Estimated processing times for GSM visa applications can be found on our
website at:
Client Service Charter
Estimates of processing times that apply to different types of
applications are provided as a guide only. As processing times are
dependent on a range of factors, individual processing times may vary
considerably from the published estimates.

Factors that can impact on processing times include, but are not limited
to:
- completeness of application
- how quickly applicants respond to requests to provide documentation
- medical complications
- police checks
- checks with third parties to verify claims made in an application.

Contacting Us
Providing additional documents
Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit supporting documentation
electronically. Providing scanned copies of documents reduces postal and
administrative delays in receiving and processing information.
GSM processing offices accept scanned copies of original documents
(non-certified) provided they are in colour. If you scan documents in
black and white, then they must be scanned copies of certified copies. The
valid file types for attaching documents are BMP, DOC, DOT, GIF, JPG, PDF,
RTF, TXT and XLS.
Information which will assist you in attaching documents to your
application or in emailing them to the department is available on the
department’s website at:
Attaching Documents to a General Skilled Migration Visa Application
Online applications
If you e-lodged this application you are strongly encouraged to attach all
the supporting documentation to the application in the web-browser. This
is the preferred procedure for providing supporting documents for an
e-lodged application.
If for any reason you cannot attach documents in the browser then you can
email the documents as scanned attachments to the following email address:
[email protected]
Paper lodged applications
If you lodged a paper application you can still provide supporting
documentation electronically by emailing the documents as scanned
attachments to:
[email protected]
When emailing documents to the department please quote your Transaction
Reference Number (TRN) or file reference number for this purpose.
Do not send this office any original documents or provide paper copies of
documents previously attached to the browser or sent by e-mail unless
asked to do so by a departmental officer.
Medical Results
If you have undertaken your medical examination with Medibank Health
Solutions (formerly Health Services Australia), please do not post your
medical results to us unless your case officer requests you to do so.
Please store your results in a secure place and do not open the sealed
envelope.

ENQUIRIES
Email
Our preferred means of communication for GSM enquiries is email.

with a specific email address and you should correspond directly by email
with them.
