Default SMC CO Allocation

Hi All,

Does anyone know how long does it take to get a CO allocated for SMC?

Appreciate if any one could share their current experience.

Cheers.

All depends if your application has a job offer or not.
Applications with at least 160 points and including job offer points are given priority over those that do not have job offer points.
I'd say a matter of weeks if the application is a priority. If not it can take several months.
In total from EOI submission to processing completion will take minimum 6 months assuming it is a priority application with a job offer and all the necessary paperwork and evidence is supplied with no issues on the medicals or police reports.
If your application doesn't have a job offer you will not be approved for the visa no matter how many points you have. The best your will get is a 12 month job search visa however processing time to get to that point may take 9-12 months ?
You must understand that INZ do not rush any application. They have an operations manual to adhere to and they stick to it by the letter and then when all the processing is completed another CO checks it thoroughly (internal audit) to make sure all their rules have been followed.

Thanks for the reply,

Am currently working for an accredited employer also holding work to resident visa since 2018, will that make any difference in the processing and CO allocation timeline

Cheers.

No.
It'll have more priority because of the job offer points but processing will be the same as any other person in the same situation. Yours actually may take longer as you are already here and working for the employer who has offered so there's no great urgency.....if you understand what I mean.
