Is State sponsor (visa 475) considered as State nomination application
I applied for visa 475 (SA sponsor) and my occupation is on CSL (surveyor 2123-13). As the new Skilled Migration programme, I think that my application get the first priority processing:
Priority processing and timeframes
To explain, visa applicants are now assigned a level of priority by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) after lodging their application. The order currently stands as follows (listed from highest priority to lowest):
However, even though the above priorities encompass all skilled visa Australia applicants, only Priority 1 and Priority 2 applicants have been given a set length of time in which they should expect their visas to enter processing. The timeframes are as follows:
- Priority 1) Applicants will enter processing within 10 days of lodging their visa.
- Priority 2) Applicants will enter processing within 4 months of lodging their visa.
- Priority 3) Indefinite (Priority 3 applicants will only enter processing after all Priority 1 and 2 applicants have been processed).
- Priority 4) Indefinite (Priority 4 applicants will only enter processing after all Priority 1, 2 and 3 applicants have been processed).
but I lodged my application on Jun 01, today is Jun 16. Still no CO
is there any wrong with my application?
