the updates for processing times are regularly revised (usually weekly). What you have is the newest and mostly in line with current changes.
It is getting harder to get through to PR . State sponsorship for students is a whole different box of dice. Processing for all GSM applications that are not on the critical list or statesponsored are on hold due to capping and the economy.

Hi Fiona,

I couldn't get this week's allocation updates for vb885. I did send e-mail to the brisbane office and I am only getting the last week's updates. Do you by any chance know this week's allocation updates.

Thanx

GENERAL SKILLED MIGRATION
ADELAIDE PROCESSING INFORMATION

This is an automated e-mail response which provides updated information on skilled migration applications being processed by the Adelaide Skilled Processing Centre (ASPC). Please do not reply to this email address as this mailbox is not monitored. Contact details for the ASPC are listed below.


Priority Processing - Change From 1 January 2009

Following recent announcements by the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, in response to the current global economic environment, processing of General Skilled Migration applications gives first priority to applications in the following two categories:

1. Applications with a successful State or Territory Nomination; and
2. Applications where the nominated occupation is identified on the
Critical Skills List (CSL).

Note: Due to the number of applications in the above two categories, on hand and being received, applications not on the CSL, or applications without a successful State or Territory nomination, will be delayed until those applications which meet the processing priorities are finalised. This includes those on the Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL)

Details of the Minister’s announcements can be found on the DIAC website via the following link:
http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...hats-new.htm#j


Priority Application Processing Information

Applications are now being processed as follows:

1. State or Territory Nominated Applications - once the department has received and approved a nomination from a state or territory authority, processing of the application will commence within 10 working days of that approval. Should you need to, please lodge enquiries about your application via: http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/forms/gsm/post.htm

2. Applications with a nominated occupation on the Critical Skills List
(CSL) - are being processed in date of lodgment order. Information about the CSL can be found on the department's website at:
http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...kills-list.pdf


Priority Processing Exemptions

Visa Subclasses 485, 476, 487 and 887 are exempt from the priority processing changes.
