In our experience, current processing time for employer sponsored permanent residency applications (ENS and RSMS) lodged in New South Wales is around 3-6 months. This estimate is just based on our experience with our own applications, and we do generally lodge complete and decision-ready applications.
Please do not ask us to predict the processing time for your application, or why there is a long delay with the processing of your application. The processing of your application is completely in the Department’s control. If you want an update in relation to the processing of your application, you need to contact the Department or your case officer (if one has been allocated). You are allowed to contact the Department or your case officer directly, even if you have a legal representative or registered migration agent acting for you. It will not harm your application if you ask the Department or your case officer for an update.
If you want to know about other people’s experience with processing times, many people have shared their experience on this website.
Decision-Ready applications lodged between 1 July and 22 November 2012
Because of problems with the eLodgement system, if you lodged a decision-ready application between 1 July 2012 and 22 November 2012, it is not possible for the Department to identify this application as decision-ready.
If you lodged an application as decision ready between 1 July 2012 and 22 November 2012, and have not had contact with the Department, please inform the Department by emailing via the link below:
