Default Will new rules apply for Applications submitted to DIAC before 1st July 2012 ?

Hi all,

I am planning to apply under the GSM subcategory 175 class for Australian PR.

However i learnt that there would be an Expression of interest being introduced from 1st July 2012 onwards which would restrict the number of PR's to be awarded.

Can you pls let me know if i file my application with DIAC before 1st July 2012(say in may/june), should my application also go through the Expression of interest scenario ? Or will it be treated as one now ?

Since even if i submit my app before 1st July 2012, anyways my CO allotment happens only after July 2012 :-(

Any inputs woud be appreciated.

Thanks

The rules apply for applications submitted after July 1st. Try and make it before that and it wont affect you

1. No need to submit self declarations.
2. ACS and IELTS can be done in parallel, it will save your time.
3. retake, obviously.
4. No, it's not sufficient. You have to submit stat. dec. stating detail responsibility by you and also from a senior ex-colleague of yours with his business card.
5. Yes, it's true. I have seen people getting their grant in 6-8 months. But it varies, though I don't know the factors behind it. one thing is, for people from high risk country it takes more time for security check or something like that. May be there are some other factors as well.

Not sure if submitting the application to your local Australian High Commission would help. I just read a post on this forum this morning where it was mentioned that DIAC are going to accept applications till June 30th. So I dont think online server would be down around the end of June. Try filling up & saving majority of your application form online early next month and submit it after updating the IELTS TRF details. You will save a lot of time.

All the best!!

Hi Coolsnake

If the question is irrelevant, I appologise. But I am sure you may be able to guide me in the right direction;

Thats my status uptill now,

IELTS: 5 Jun (Avrg 8.5)
ACS Applied: 26 April 12
ACS +ve result: 9 Jun 12
Vic SS Applied (ICT Security Specialist): 9 Jun 12
Vic SS ref Number: 14 Jun 12

I want to apply for 176, Can I apply before 1st July (without knowing the outcome of SS) using the ref number got from Vic SS in the DIAC app?

this question can also be re-phrased as "Does the Vic SS ref number change upon the acceptance of your SS application?" or "Do I have to attach the SS confirmation email in the DIAC application?"

Thanks in advance!

IR.Malik

Hi Malik,
Unfortunately, you would have to wait till you get the result of your Vic SS to be able to apply for 176. Vic usually take a long time to release the outcome of the SS application. So applying without the SS approval is not an option.

On the positive side, if they approve your application even after 1st July then you are definitely going to get an invitation to apply if you lodge an Expression of Interest with the DIAC. So I would suggest you wait for the result and then apply.

Good Luck!!

The reference number doesn't change but it would be unwise to apply for a 176 without an approval of state sponsorship. Given that for most professions the processing time for VIC SS is well over 8-10 weeks, there's no way you'd get the state sponsorship in time (you only get 28 days to submit documents, PCCs and medicals from the date you're assigned a CO) and you'd run the risk of getting your application summarily rejected (and losing out on nearly $3000 AUD).

FYI - WA is processing SS applications within a matter of days.
