I think SS applicants must wait until July because the quota of this year reached. I received this delay email. Have you got a same one?

I am writing to you regarding your application for an Australian skilled visa (subclass 489).

The visa for which you have applied is part of the Skilled Nominated category. The Migration Programme determines the maximum number of visas that can be granted in each visa category. Applications for this visa are processed in line with Migration Programme planning levels. These planning levels have precedence over indicative client service standard timeframes.

The Migration Programme planning level for the Skilled Nominated category now has limited number of places left for the 2014-15 program year. This means processing times will be longer and that once the remaining places are used, the Department cannot grant further visas in this category during this programme year.

As planning levels affect all applications, including those in the final stages of processing, I cannot give you an indication as to the likely timeframe for finalisation of your application.

In the meantime, I encourage you to continue checking the department’s website (Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection) for any updates regarding application processing or changes to the Skilled Migration Programme which may affect you.

I appreciate your patience in this matter.


Kind regards,

Many occupations were in flagged list long time ago but still there now. I think they will not change much the SOL and CSOL because these lists effect to the amount of oversea students who are studying in Australia and they bring much money to this country. The one they only change is the requirement of visas.
