It seems like ACS is waiting for July 1 to release the results.....this is what i found on VETASSESS website....

********************

1 July 2017 – Strategic Skills Lists Reforms

Following the visa reform changes announced by the Australian Government in April 2017, VETASSESS anticipates further changes on 1 July to the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) and Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL). We recommend that you take this into consideration when lodging any new applications.

While VETASSESS continues to receive skills assessment applications, any new application for General Professional Occupations lodged from now will not be finalised before 1 July 2017.

Please be advised that the anticipation of changes to the occupation lists will not be considered a valid reason for urgency.

*******************

Nothing else can explain the sudden increase in processing time since first week of June,,

Oh, my friends I was eligible for priority processing because of my VISA deadline. My VISA was expiring in less than 12 weeks at time of submission.

Submitted on 12th June and waiting fingers crossed. Apparently ACS had upgraded their server and there was a downtime for last 5 days, hence the delay.

VETASSES has clearly mentioned on their websites that they wont finalize any applications until July 1

Hi Guys, The ACS website got updated on 26th Jun and now I am not able to upload experience document and delete the qualification (somehow it is displaying 3 qualifications with same details that I gave for one).
Has anyone faced this issue? Any suggestion how can I get this sorted with the support team from ACS?

As they have adopted a new system, there would be some teething problems

Drop them an email on [email protected] explaining the problem you are facing
Pleas take care to mention your reference number etc.

They will respond within hours with the solution

Cheers

Friends,

Can any of you help me with this crisis. My consultant uploaded one of the reference file in the ACS assessment portal wrongly and not able to delete it. She is saying she can see the delete icon but its not working. Please note we are yet to do the payment and submit the assessment application and still she is unable to delete the uploaded file. Consultant says that recently ACS website got revamped and they enhanced the web page and now the look and feel is different. Can any of you help with a solution for this
