I've submitted the request for ACS ([email protected]) on 3 weeks ago to the nomination for the Global Talent Independent (GTI) Program. Yet the response haven't received from ACS.

Usually how long ACS take for asset and send us the response?
I've submitted my application on 20-September 2021
Got a update for my email on 18-October-2021, stating below
Thank you for your email.

We can confirm that we have received your GTI submission.

Due to the high volume of applications received we will conduct a preliminary assessment of the application as soon as possible however please note due to the high demand for this process please allow 8-10 weeks to receive a response.

We ask that you please be patient during this time as we will examine each submission individually and advise you of the outcome accordingly.


3-Nov-2021, got an email on successful nomination and paid 500$, awaiting form 1000 now.

Has anybody submitted their ACS nomination assessment for the GTI program in the last 2/3 months as I submitted mine 5 weeks ago and been advised the wait is now up to 24 weeks. Anyone received any updates ?

I submitted it 3 weeks back and have the same reply for 24 week wait time. It is such a long time to process, I hope they do it sooner.
@Sysoperb Would you be kind enough to post here after receiving the processed email? My application should be done soon after yours so I will get an idea.

Thank you for this information. If any of you recently got updates from ACS about the nomination suitability assessment outcome and/or any response, please do let us know so that we can get the timeline.

Another question - if let's say we get the UID / invite for GTI application and then apply for ACS nomination, will that be processed on priority? (assuming we have not submitted nominator / Form 1000 details during the EoI stage and waiting for UID / invite to come)

Can you please update here if you get an update from ACS?
Is there a way we can login to ACS dashboard and see our status on application? (GTI related only)

I presume, now, the email id is [email protected] and NOT [email protected]

What is the format to fill information for pg 3 and 4 as shown in below image. I have an idea on what to fill, but a proper flow of idea in a particular format would be more beneficial. Does anyone has a format that can be used to fill these?

I have received an outcome (didn’t meet the international recognition and not creating products on a global scale) with my nomination on 17/05/2022, so response was just under 3 months.

Any updates from anyone who has applied for ACS nomination and received assessment response from them (GTI related only)?

I received a reply from ACS today with a rejection. I heard it is extremely tough to get a nomination from ACS but I still had some hope given my fantastic profile (at least according to me). A bit disappointed but now I have to try to find another nominator. If someone has any ideas please let me know.

What reason they gave for rejection?
What proofs you had given?
Maybe we can help you find something that was missing to make your profile strong

Thanks for the help. This was the reason mentioned in their email: "Overall, the team have not found record of any technological achievement that is internationally recognised and is exceptional or outstanding which would fill a significant knowledge gap and will be of benefit to ICT/DigiTech industry or academia in Australia".

My profile-
  • 10 years of experience in fintech (currently working with a top-tier investment bank). Microsoft certified cloud expert.
  • Written a book on cyber security
  • Published a peer-reviewed research paper in an international journal
  • Guest writer on a popular security website
  • Consistently rated as a high performer in my team
  • Created fintech based software apps as my personal projects and some open source projects as well
  • Easily crossing the high salary condition with my current comp.
  • Received numerous recommendations from senior people in the same industry (its on Linkedin so not sure if ACS took it seriously)

I created a 15-page document listing my accomplishments and provided concrete proof for every single claim I made.

This seems weird. With the achievements you made, it should have been a breeze to get the nomination

Initially, I thought so too. There is an Australian consultant on Youtube who makes helpful GTI videos. He said that he has not seen a single person (from his clients) getting a nomination from ACS even with excellent profiles. After seeing that video, I had lowered my expectations but rejection still hurts, lol.
I think ACS in general is tougher than the immigration department itself. I would probably have better chances convincing the immigration dept provided I find a nominator of course. Unfortunately, most of my professional network is limited to HK/LN/US.
