    Vf 475 visa

    Hi everyone! Hope you,re all doing great. Just need to get your views. i applied for ve 175 in 2008, but later changed my mind to go the route of VF 475 , thats for Temporary visa in 2009 whwn i applied for state sponsorship. i have just been given SA Sponsorship, and plan to apply online for my visa. When exactly do i expect to get my visa considering last September 2009 new ministerial rules that all applications not in the critical list but state sponsored would expect the applications unlikely finalised by 2012. When will the visa be issued? Thanks for you nice views. kenny china
  4. Hi all, I am planning to re lodge my application for Ve 475 South Australia state sponsorship,long suspended due to poor IELTS. i have now got my IELTS done. Overall band score 7.0 But as the way it goes i think it will take more than 3years *2012 to get my visa processed and finalized according to the new priority processing rules issued in 29 Sept2009. Ironically the test result must have expired going by the new development. The whole thing looks confusing ! Am I chasing a shadow ? Can anyone guide me? kennychina2009

    Visa Issues - Any Advice?

    Hi Gill, first i want to thnk you for all your advice and encouragment which i found highly valuable . i can not thank you enough. Just aquick note to inform you i got a mail from Daic yesterday. Here it goes . Advice me on the next line of action as they did not tell me my status: Dear Potential Migrant Immigration SA is pleased to receive your enquiry about migration to South Australia as a skilled Migrant. You should be aware however, that responsibility for all matters relating to the criteria and granting of visas rest with the Commonwealth Department of Immigration and Citizenship “DIAC”. You should visit their website www.immi.gov.au in the first instance and download Booklet 6 to determine your eligibility for migration. If you wish to migrate to and live in South Australia, Immigration SA may be able to provide you with sponsorship to facilitate visa grant by DIAC by those who need sponsorship to meet all the migration criteria. Sponsorship does not guarantee employment or any financial assistance. Before you consider migration, you should visit all the relevant websites and conduct first-hand, thorough and meaningful research on the employment prospects and lifestyle issues to ensure that you are well prepared for any challenges that you might encounter when you move to a new country. Please visit our website before you contact Immigration SA again for comprehensive information about the criteria, process and On Line application form for sponsorships available from Immigration SA. Visit: http://www.migration.sa.gov.au/sa/migrate_from_overseas/visa_options/gen_skill3.jsp Each of these options has specific sponsorship criteria in addition to the DIAC visa criteria. You should match your qualifications/circumstances to each visa option to determine the appropriate visa subclass for you. You must meet ALL the sponsorship and visa criteria to be successful. If your skills assessment/nominated occupation is not on one of our Lists, this means that you will not be able to meet all the sponsorship criteria and therefore not qualify for sponsorship at this time. Other associated programs and concessions (read the relevant web pages for more details): Concessional English – You must also have a firm job offer in South Australia. Off List Sponsorship – You also have a firm job offer in South Australia. Work experience waiver for international students – an exemption is provided under some circumstances. If you have already lodged your visa application with DIAC, Immigration SA will consider a sponsorship application if the applicant was under 45 and/or the IELTS result was less than two years old at time of visa application. However the applicant must meet all the criteria at the time the sponsorship application was received by Immigration SA. Sponsorship Lists – These lists are revised regularly. Occupations may be removed or added depending on planning levels and labour market needs. The lists on the website are the most current. If an application is submitted on-line and the documents are received by Immigration SA within the validity period, the applicant will not be disadvantaged should the list change. All supporting documents must be received by Immigration SA within 60 days of the on-line application. Once sponsorship has been approved, the applicant has 60 days to lodge their visa application. The On Line application form only works under MS Explorer. Note that the sponsorship application to Immigration SA bears no cost but there is a visa application fee imposed by DIAC. You should also take note of the timelines in the process that may be critical to your application and factor these into your application process. These timelines are available on the respective websites. Immigration SA cannot be responsible for any delays outside our processing times. Immigration SA is unable to provide you with migration advice beyond the information outlined above and on our website. You may apply for migration direct but if you require more information or assistance, you may wish to engage the services of a registered migration agent. You can locate one in South Australia at www.mia.org.au or one near you at www.themara.com.au Thank you for your interest in South Australia and we hope that we can assist you in achieving your migration objectives. Manager, General Skilled Migration Immigration South Australia Department of Trade and Economic Development Government of SOUTH AUSTRALIA Regards, kenny

    Visa Issues - Any Advice?

    Hi Gill, Thanks as always for the great encouragement you send through your mails. i cannot thank you enough. And they have been a major source of inspiration to me. i must tell you that since we started communicating , the gloom around me have dissipated to a great extent. At least i can begin to see some light at the end of the tunnel. And no longer feel its a search in futility. Today i sent out mails to those addresses . Contacting Libby Hogarth was a bit difficult. due to server problem. But i plan to give her a call tommorrow. Also i sent mail to the SA office politely asking them what happened. And like you prophesied my last option is waiting till october to see what happens next. Thats 10 weeks . God bless you . i,ll keep in touch. Regards, kenny.:laugh:

    Visa Issues - Any Advice?

    Many thanks again for your most encouraging mail. i felt highly uplifted in my depressed spirit after reading your mail again. Yes , i did enclose a letter with my second application describing what went wrong with the first one.But since 28 july 2009 i sent in the second application including the written request for consideration under the concessional engish i have not heard anything .Its quite frustrating. Please your idea to phone them is okay. I would humbly ask your favor of calling the lady in Immigration SA called Anne Johnson. I don't know her number . Being a fellow woman and mother like you she may be inclined to listen moreto you .If you can have a word with her on my behalf i would remain highly appreciative. Try to have a word with Anne Johnson to see whether you can get a "feel" for how she is likely to approach my situation. Remain blessed. Warm regards, kenny :dull:

    Visa Issues - Any Advice?

    Dear Gill, Many thanks for your kind and encouraging mail. In answer to yourquestion, i have provided the IELTS Test Report Form showing i have an overall band score of at least six (6.0). But what i have not got is a written employment offer of at least 6 months in a skilled occupation based in South Australia that is full-time (at least 35 hours per week). Being an offshore applicant i have been sending series of job application letters without landing any job. And so i have not sent SA proof of the necessary job offer because i do not have any job offer. However in 31 March 2009 when i submitted my application for SA sponsorship the new clause of an employment offer , at least 35hpw had not been introduced. My application waslodged before the new employment offer clause. And so will i be assessed under the new regulation? Your advise on what to do to move my application to the next level is urgently needed. Warm regards, kenny :mad:

    Help ,visa refused

    Hi, i am very sorry to hear of your visa refusal. It could be quite painful especially when the refusal has been due to one mistake or something. I had a similar experience when i lodged my documents for state sponsorship. i mistakenly forgot to include a written application requesting for consideration under the concessional english provision obtainable in SA. For that reason CO ruled that the application for state sponsorship is refused following the applicants failure to request to be considered under the concessional english. Even though i have re lodged since a month ago i have not heard from anybody.Total silence. i want to encourage to keep on keeping on, for it is not over until it is over. Do you have an agent? Talk to her and then get her advise before you re lodge. i wish you all the best .Again regret is an appalling waste of energy, you cant build on it. Its only good for wallowing in. keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. Be full of smiles . kennychina
