Would it affect the applications lodged already for these occupations? Say someone lodged it a month back when these were present?

If you have received an invite against an EOI application than that individual is not impacted.

The individual is impacted in case just EOI application is lodged. In this situation he will no longer be able to receive any invite.

If you have already lodged the visa and paid the fees, you are not affected

CO will contact you in due course if he needs any documents from you

My skill is also removed but I lodged my application on 18 April'17. Hopefully the final outcome of application will not be effected. Would it effect the processing time ? since skill is no longer required in Oz, would my application be put in the parking lot for long halt .
Appreciate your views .
Regards

I remember a member complaining that because his occupation has been removed from the eleigible list, his application was delayed in processing

It may be the case or even not because there are several cases which are delayed more then a year also even if the occupation is not removed

Anyways no use speculating over it as there is nothing you can do it about it

Hi
Thanks for your reply . Do u happen to remember his sub class ,mine is 189. I would imagine that delay could be to a particular sub class but overall all applicants under particular sub should be treated equal . But again like u said no point speculating over something which is beyond your control .

Cheers

You cannot generalise the applications even within the same class

It's not First in First out
It's the quality of the application which matters
If you have submitted all,the documents required and you have a fool proof case, your application would be processed much faster then some one who may have submitted months earlier then you but has insufficient evidence

Then there is a question of character clearance where your file can be stuck for months for no apparent reason

Too many variables

Cheers

I had CO contact me on 29th May asking for PCC , which I submitted on 17 June.
I have been to Australian on couple of occasions for work and also as a visitor . I am currently holding valid Oz visa . Hope it plays a part in speedy character assessment .
I don't think there should be any problem with work experience points .

Problem is that I took off from work to oversee my visa application as I was scheduled to work overseas .
Waiting can be frustrating , hope they convey their decision in next few weeks .

Cheers
