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.
