Back in May I gave up hope of gaining a visa as my occupation -general gardener- was removed with all the changes from the list of in demand occupations. (I actually sat down on May 9th two days after this decision was made to submit my application, credit card at the ready, only to find I couldn't even access my application....what a sickener!). Now my occupation looks to be on the SA State Sponsored Migration List it could all be back on again for me. However, I've kind of lost touch with everything having decided to get on with my life so without trawling all through the DIAC and SA websites wonder if anyone can give me a few answers to some questions before I get all excited again. Here goes.
1. I had a positive skill assessment back in April 2010 (hence not quite getting my application in) from the TRA. Is this still valid?
2. Will I have enough points..not sure what the current point threshold stands at but I will be 45 in August.
3. Do I only need to fill in the SA online application if above ok or are there others on the DIAC website also.
I had some serious help from people on here prior to all the changes so thanks to those and anyone who can help now. I'm wary of dipping my toe in the water again but somehow if I don't see it through to the end think I'll regret it one day. On the other hand it could finish me off!
Any help would be much appreciated,
