We will no longer be publishing allocation dates by processing centre as we are using a number of strategies to manage the caseload more efficiently. Generally we are managing allocations via the following:

Priority 1: Decision Ready, complete applications in ANZSCO 1 & 2 occupations (by date of lodgement)
Priority 2: All other Decision Ready applications (by date of lodgement)
Priority 3: ANZSCO occupations 1 & 2 requiring further documentation (by date of lodgement)
Priority 4: All other applications by date of lodgement
