Immigration SA’s records show that you were granted South Australian state sponsorship after 1 July 11 but as yet, have not provided DIAC visa lodgement details to Immigration SA for a state sponsored GSM visa application with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). Immigration SA is allowing applicants approved during this period an additional 30 days to lodge their visa application with DIAC. The TRN / BCC number and DIAC lodgement date for the applicant must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday the 15th of February 2012 (please note: you will not be able to enter the TRN /BCC number into the Client Tracking system on this occasion).
Please note: This decision is final. Immigration SA will not enter into any communication regarding this decision as it is deemed to be "in the interest of natural justice with fairness to all applicants". There will be no further extensions beyond this 30 day period.
New state sponsorship applications approved from the 17th of January 2012 will be given 60 days to lodge their visa application with DIAC and enter their TRN / BCC number into the Client Tracking System
Just recieved this this morning...
I reapplied for SA as my original grant had expired. It was granted on 28th October and due to not being able to claim the additional points for English with DIAC, it lapsed. I resat IELTS and now have the additional points for 8s and therefore reapplied on the 23rd December for SS. My question is do you think i have to wait for my new grant or do you think i could lodge with DIAC under my old lapsed reference number? Or as it is now January it will be deemed as being past the 60 day time frame?
Any advice please
