Sequencing and Priority

Can you lose priority status on the CAF?

A priority application will lose its priority status if: 

    • the grade of the applicant changes.  An individual who was promoted after 7 September 2004 loses priority status at the new grade.  The application is taken to date from the date of promotion; or
    • the applicant changes the first preference location.  In this case, if a two-to-ten trawl for the new first preference location is subsequently carried out, the applicant who changed location can be considered for the new location on the same basis as those who changed their first preference as a result of a two-to-ten trawl.  Further details in relation to two-to ten trawls are available elsewhere on this site.
