    Default Skilled Residence Applications Timeframes

    Hi

    I thought it would be a good idea to create a thread, with a possibility of becoming a sticky, for the timeline of Skilled Residence Applications.
    We're all aware of the priority and queue system currently in place, therefore the thread will assist those that are to apply, or already in the queue to estimate processing times for their applications that are already in the queue.
    We know that the current queue has applications that were lodged in August 2019.

    Let's set the guidelines for this thread:
    1. Lets keep chatter to the minimum and use this mainly for processing times/dates. Chatter can be had here: https://www.enz.org/forum/showthread.php?t=55758
    2. Post only if you applied/applying under the Skilled Migrant Residency Category. This includes the Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) and Residency From Work (RFW) Category only.
    3. Post only if you have applied AFTER July 2019, as the purpose of this thread is to see how the prioritization and queue system affects processing time.
    4. Post only if you are onshore.
    5. Use templates below, and add lines for other important events/delete if not applicable.

    Templates:

    SMC
    Priority: YES/NO
    ITA Lodgment Date:
    Accepted by INZ Date (money deducted):
    Case officer assigned Date:
    Communication with CO if any:
    2PC Check Date:
    Approved Date: Leave blank if still in process/make a comment

    RFW (Talent) Work Visa - Accredited Employer/Arts, Culture and Sports
    Priority: YES/NO
    Application Lodgment Date:
    Accepted by INZ Date (money deducted):
    Case officer assigned Date:
    Communication with CO if any:
    2PC Check Date:
    Approved Date: Leave blank if still in process/make a comment


    Happy to take suggestions for this thread/templates. The main point of it is to see processing times from other people, in the Skilled Residence stream. We are aware they are currently processing non-priority, onshore, applications from August 2019.
