What HSMP Members say...
I submitted my application under the HSMP in mid January, 2004. After four weeks I have not got a response. It is very frustrating since the guidelines for the programme indicates that most applications will be processed in one day. Through the very efficient assisstance of HSMP support services, I have made contact by telephone and was told that since the revision of the programme they have experienced a flood of applications, and as a result most applications take approximately eight weeks for processing. On recieving a positive response from the HSMP, I definitely intend to regester with HSMP support services to take advantage of the support services offered and to be part of the HSMP community. I found the promt response from HSMP support services very encouraging. I am a civil engineer from the Island of St Lucia in the Caribbean look foward to sharing my cultural and other experiences with others.  More...
