Migration and Information Services section of the ACT Government.
Applications for ACT nomination submitted before 4pm today will still be processed in queue order.
Please note, the current processing time is 3 - 4 months due to the large number of applications received post publication of the February 23 Occupation List.
This closure of the list announced by the ACT government is probably just the first of a number of similar actions by States and Territories. The migration program year runs from the 1 July to the 30 June each year.
The states have a limited numbers of positions to nominate and they also try to set their own internal target in relation to different occupations. As the end of the migration program year approached, and we get closer to the 30 June 2016, the state and territories may run out of positions to nominate.
The positive side of the cycle, is that the states will have new quotas of position to nominated from the 1 July 2016. So it is often still worth while for you to get your skills assessed and to achieve the required English scores, with a view to the new lists.
