Due to the high volume of EOI’s received by BSMQ we will only be taking phone calls between 2 to 4 pm Brisbane time each day. Currently we are inviting EOI’s lodged at the beginning of the third week of August. If you have lodged before this date, you would have been advised of the outcome or not processed due to not meeting BSMQ requirements. If you have lodged after this date, you are in the queue and will be considered as soon as possible.
Please do NOT call BSMQ if you are trying to ascertain your place in the queue, as all you are doing is to slowing down the processing. We will also not be responding to emails on the same topic (where you are in the queue). Each Monday we will update the current date of EOI’s being invited to apply.
Due to the high demand of onshore 489 EOIs received (including Masters Alumni applicants) BSMQ will only be issuing invitation to those applicants that are currently working in regional as well as having ongoing job offers.
