South Australia State Sponsorship Applications

February 17, 2010

Immigration South Australia have just released the following update which we hope clarifies the current situation:

  • Current Sponsorship applications with Immigration SA will not be affected - processing is continuing as normal
  • Current processing time is 4 weeks for Permanent and 8 weeks for Provisional - they need to ensure that any new applications are received in good time to meet any DIAC deadlines (in the future)
  • Obviously, any changes to policy/criteria or Lists from DIAC will have flow-on effects to Sponsorship policy/criteris/lists - until we know what the changes are from DIAC, we are unable to pre-empt what our changes might be
  • As usual Immigration SA reviews our lists in their entirety around the middle of the year - any new lists that DIAC bring about will have an impact on this
