This is part of what the message said -

Changes to online e-Lodgement services
This correspondence is to advise you of changes to our eLodgement systems which will occur on 6 December 2013. The
department will be introducing Online Account which will allow clients to view and group their online applications.
If you are invited to apply for a visa in SkillSelect it is advised that you regularly check the department’s website, before
lodging your visa application, to ensure there are no system maintenance and technical issues which may affect lodgement
due to the changes to our eLodgement system. See: Online services.

It sounds like something they have sent to everyone to ensure that everyone knows the system is having downtime for maintenance. It only effects those just making their application after invite as their application will be deleted if not submitted and paid for before the system goes down on the 6th to 9th December.

That maybe for you only. I didn't receive revised point system. As I posted in my initial message, that was the only content I got.

I have seen that, just 489 guys won't receive invites from Dec 16th round because there are so many applicants in 189 and other visas.

I too have got the same mail. But does this apply to EOI also? i have an incomplete EOI. So if i dont complete and submit before 6th Dec will it be deleted automatically?
Iits not a big thing to start a new EOI and fill it. But anxious to know the process.

Hi Shel,

Well no mailbox.

This update is for 3 reasons what I understood:

1. Dec 16th round onwards no 489 invitations

2. Changes in ONLINE LODGEMENT of visa, they are introducing Online Account to consolidate our accounts.

3. Ensuring correct claim of points

Points Test Factors

Best regards,
JR

You please click on "Correspondence" tab in the right side and you will find a PDF attached there for you.

Anyway, its nothing new, but it says, if you haven't lodged visa, you should do it before 6th Dec to avoid any lose of data. From your signature I see that you have already lodged visa and uploaded all docs, so no worries ann ria jacob :)

Best regards,
JR

They are shutting the system while they do some work on it. Any partial applications that are not completed & paid for will be deleted. The system will return on the 9th where you would need to redo the application if you did not finish it in time.

That's how I interpreted the notification as well. They will *not* delete any application that is lodged and waiting for a case officer. In other words, if you have lodged and paid for your application so that it now has the status "In Progress" (and you are in the "upload supporting documents" phase), you will be able to continue that application after the system maintenance.

Will you? Correct me if I'm wrong.
