Default SkillSelect (189 & 190) - High Risk Applicants

There is a new service standard for DIAC after presentation of skillselect. The thing that drew my attention the most is the removal of categorization of LR/HR from the processing time for skillselect visa types, while it still exist for RSMS/ENS visas.
I think this must mean something like a higher priority for skillselect visas when it comes to security checks.


I was amongst the first who applied skilselect visa subclass 190. And I think my profile would deem to be a VHR one as I'm Palestinian living in Syria with many visits to Lebanon. I lodged my 190 application on 13-Aug-2012 so according to the new standards should get my grant around 13-Feb-2013.


Before skillselect it used to take up to 18 months to finalize security assessment by external agency (ASIO). Now DIAC states it should be around 6 months only. What do you think about this whole new skillselect processing standards? should we get our hopes high on this or not?

if you leave your current adress more than 14 days then you need to inform him with form for change in circumstances. Otherwise i think its better to wait for co if he ask ny additional details then u can inform him/her. Also form 80 is with date and after that any travel is ok. Abt 14 days i read somewhere on DIAC website.
See my signature iapplied 18 sep and waitinggggggg

the article has a valid point, the lengthy in-depth security assessment could be done when applying for a citizenship.

I have applied for visa 190 and sent both medical test and PPC 2 weeks ago. I come from Iran. my dependent (my mother) still has not taken medical test, I really like to postpone the entering time to Australia as my mother cannot pass the ielts exam i have to pay additional 4000 dollars which i cannot afford it. if i obtain more information i will add here.

There are many threads where people have already set up high hopes for their visas and are counting their chickens even before they are hatched. Confucius would never recommend this.
If you are patient enough to wait for the processing times and confident about your experience and related documents and getting a visa, then why not?
