I've just joined PIO and think it's great, so any help will be greatly appreciated!
Myself and my partner applied for a 176 family sponsored visa back in Nov 2008, and due to the new priority processing we've decided to apply for State Sponsorship to WA as it will hopefully be a much quicker process. We applied using a migration agent last time, and feel this time we can carry out the process ourselves. Has anyone applied for state sponsorship to WA without and agent? I submitted my application for skills assessment 4 weeks ago, and am awaiting the response. I have a few specific questions below regarding the online SS forms:
1) Is there a minimum threshold for funds? I was under the impression that you need to state an amount in terms of your assets, but there is no minimum amount? Is this the case?
2) If anyone has completed the process how long did it take from submitting online state spon forms, and main DIAC application to getting visa?
Any help greatly appreciated!
