ENS and RSMS Processing Overload

The contents of this article are correct as at 24 August 2010.

DIAC’s Parramatta office is experiencing an overload in applications for the Employer Nomination and Regional Skilled Migration Schemes (ENS & RSMS), according to the Director of Program Delivery.

Due to this large volume of casework, applications selected at random and involving 1700 people will instead be assigned to case officers in DIAC’s Perth and Melbourne processing centers.

Affected applicants will be notified by the case-officer once their case is allocated.

At present, the Department has plans for a new model of ENS and RSMS processing which will reward applicants who lodge complete applications. No further information on the new model is available at this time.
