1. State government, job appraisal and other immigration agencies holiday and trial arrangements

NSW: A two-week vacation will start on December 25, indicating that it will affect the progress of the trial, and expect a delay

Victoria: The state government stated that the holiday at the end of the year will not affect the trial...the confidence is very high, so there is no holiday time.

Canberra: The two-week vacation will start on December 25, which means that it will affect the progress of the trial and expect a delay.

Tasmania: The vacation will start from December 24 to January 5. At the same time, some employees are reminded that they will take annual leave for longer periods in January, and the trial will be delayed. Currently, the CO is allocated to around August 20-30.

Western Australia: The vacation will begin on December 24, and the office will resume on January 4. It is estimated that it will take at least 8 weeks for the trial of the formal nomination from submission to assignment to the case officer trial.

South Australia: Except for public holidays on the 25th and 26th, the holiday will start on the 27th, and the office will resume on January 4, and the personnel will not fully return until January 10. During this period, the application can continue to be submitted, but the online consultation submitted at 5 o'clock on the 22nd will not get a reply until after the holiday.

The Australian Immigration Bureau officially stated that generally only public holidays and normal weekends will be held, and the specific arrangements of the trial staff are not known, except for the public holidays on December 25 and 26. AAT's Australian offices will be closed on December 27th and 28th and January 3rd. From December 29th to 31st, except for the Canberra and Hobart offices, all offices will be closed.

2. The temporary visa can finally enter the country. The Ministry of Finance expects immigrants to return to their pre-epidemic levels in the next fiscal year

On December 15th for nearly two years, the first batch of 500/485/489 and other temporary visas finally entered the country smoothly, hard-won! The current attitude of the Australian government is roughly coexisting with the virus. The emergence of Omicron will not allow the pace of opening up to reverse, but everyone should pay attention to safety and health first.

The Federal Mid-Year Economic and Financial Outlook (MYEFO) emphasizes that the federal government intends to steadily increase immigration (in a broad sense, including temporary visas for long-term residence). The latest forecast predicts that the number of immigrants will rise to 180,000 by 2022-23. This is twice the previous forecast of 96,000 people. This is also due to the opening of the border earlier than expected, which was previously expected to be in the middle of 2022, nearly 6 months earlier. The current open government expects that 120,000 people will enter in the future. Temporary and permanent immigrants will gradually return from the beginning of 2022, and international students are expected to return in time in the first half of 2022. Starting in early 2022, international travelers will return more broadly on the basis of the established travel bubble.

In terms of long-term forecasts, the number of immigrants in 2024-25 is expected to remain 235,000, which is roughly the same as before.

In addition, the Australian certified vaccine has been updated! The approval of Beijing Sinopharm’s vaccine was revised to be under 60 years old. It was 18-60 years old before. Some people have solved the problem of “approved vaccines” and look forward to the addition of more vaccines as approved vaccines in the future.

3. Accurate waiting time for signing by the Immigration Bureau, and the priority of the official trial

This week, the Immigration Bureau not only updated the information signed in November, but this time also gave 25% and 50% of the waiting time for applications signed. Let's take a look at some common types:


190 state guarantees, 25% waited within 4 months, 50% waited within 5 months, 75% waited within 6 months or less, 90% waited within 18 months, which is much slower

491 State responsibility in remote areas, state government guarantees, 25% waited within 88 days, 50% waited within 5 months, 75% within 5 months or less, one month slower; 90% within 9 months Or within, speed up

189 points system, 25% waited within 73 days, 50% waited within 5 months, 75% waited for 18 months, which is 2 months faster than the last update, and 90% waited within 30 months or less. Basically keep

482 employer sponsored nomination, 25% waited within 21 days, 50% waited within 28 days, 75% waited within 40 days; 90% waited for 54 days

For 858 global talents, 25% of the GTI channels applied by most people waited within 35 days, 50% waited within 59 days, 75% waited within 4 months; 90% waited within 5 months


At present, the processing sequence for skilled immigration given on the official website of the Immigration Bureau is:

The first is: Occupation is the employer guarantee, GTI and 188 on the PMSOL list/agricultural occupation

The second is: Occupation belongs to Critical Sector


And then went back to the employer guarantee in the remote area

The fifth is: 491 remote areas state responsibility

The eighth is: 489 state responsibility in the original remote area

The ninth is: 190 

The tenth is: 189
