    RECEIPTING AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF APPLICATIONS

     

    The ASPC is currently receipting new applications within service standards.

    Once an application has been receipted it undergoes validity checking and

    an acknowledgement letter with client information and a receipt will be

    sent. If an application is determined to be invalid documents will be

    returned and a refund of the visa application charge arranged.

     

    As of 25 March 2008 the ASPC Admin Section is processing applications as

    follows:

     

    Onshore Applications: receipting and acknowledging applications received on

    18 March 2008.

     

    Offshore Applications received after 1 September 2007: receipting and

    acknowledging applications received on 17 March 2008.

     

    Offshore Applications received prior to 1 September 2007:

    All applications with a valid payment have now been receipted. The ASPC is

    acknowledging offshore applications received on 29 August 2007.

     

    Please note that any delay in acknowledging an application does not affect

    the date on which a valid application is recorded as having been received

    and does not delay processing of the application.

     

    Once an application has been acknowledged it will be allocated to a case

    officer for further assessment as soon as possible, however, the ASPC

    receives a large number of applications and you will not be contacted

    immediately.
