The last day for submitting requests for South Australian sponsorship under the current Points Test, before the new Points Test commences on 1 July 2011, is 2 May 2011. This means all completed applications including sponsorship application and supporting documents must be received by Immigration SA before 5pm local Adelaide time on Monday 2 May 2011.
Immigration SA will close the Online Application System at 5pm local Adelaide time on Monday 2 May 2011 and any applications received after this time will not be processed.
It is anticipated that a large volume of applications will be received by Immigration SA and whilst Immigration SA will endeavour to process and finalise applications before 1 July 2011 to enable applicants to submit their visa application with DIAC under the current Points Test, Immigration SA are unable to guarantee that all applications will be processed and finalised before 1 July 2011.
Processing of applications will commence in order of receipt of completed documentation therefore applicants should submit their sponsorship application as soon as possible to have the best chance of obtaining sponsorship from South Australia.
