Default New GSM changes in October 2009

Hello everyone!

If there are experts here, maybe they know what changes to GSM are going to take effect in October 2009. Especially, what should applicants, who applied more than 2 years ago and not in high priority list like MODL or CSL, wait?

Hi Avlaw,

You may wish to consider asking one of the States to consider sponsoring you under SS sponsorship under one of the 500 discretionary occupations given to each states since last year. The success of you securing a place depends on among other factors your socio-economic background and how persuasive your appeal letter is phrased.

Best of luck

Thanks, Robert, for your feedback, but I wanted to know about NEW CHANGES to GSM regarding Skilled Independent in general NOT for regional subclass. All we need is to know your opinion and projection about new changes not off-topic suggestions.

Hi Avlaw

Thanks for joining this forum.

It is of course evening here in Australia so you are unlikely to receive a response until tomorrow.

Cheers
Sheelagh

avlaw,

Without a crystal ball one could only indulge in rumours and guess work as to what changes in the GSM would come about in the near future. As there is a review of the MODL scheme one could certinly expect some changes but again one would need a crystal ball to know how the MODL will be changed. In a public forum no agent would offer guess work, or advise unless he/she is well insured.

My posting was by way of information for those who are languishing for two three years in the system and who wish to move forward for faster processing through State sponsorship for permanent residence ( not regional or provisional) by using one of the 500 places. Of course some would be quite happy to wait it out longer.

Thanks for your comments Robert - so you have not yet gone to bed!!

There is much speculation over what changes will be made to the General Skilled Migration programme particularly in relation to the MODL. The Minister obviously has his views on the matter but there are many interested parties who are lobbying for changes.

For example, Engineers Australia (EA) have put in a submission to the Minister to have changes made suggesting an approach where migrants are assessed on their qualifications and work experience. It said this would be more consistent with the competency-based assessment methods used to accredit Australian university bachelor degrees in engineering and the qualifications of prospective visa applicants.

EA states that "The basis of the present MODL is an out-moded view of what engineers are and do. Replacing the old ASCO system with the skills-based ANZSCO system for classifying occupations is an important step in the right direction, providing all occupations in which engineers work in a modern economy are taken into account," the submission said.

The full submission can be downloaded by clicking the following link: http://www.engineersaustralia.org.au...iteName=ieaust

I have tried to look into my Crystal ball.

Have a look at my submission (no. 11) part 2.

-Also read DIAC's submission no.111 to get the insight.

Thanks for your 'insights' Glenn.

Avlaw, I hope this is of some help?

Glenn is a long time practioner in Australian immigration law and has made many submissions to the government on policy matters. Most recently he has been actively involved in the international student debacle in Australia, providing input on the Vocational Education Sector and changes required therein.

As and when we hear any more news in relation to the general skilled migration programme and any changes that are likely to be made, we will notify this community as promptly as possible.
