    How many cat 6 applied in 2008

    Hi Baby Pom This is the problem that no one seems to be able to answer at the moment. As we asked our agent and all they mentioned was this extention thingy, so i assumed that if we didn't get that we would have to do all meds and police checks again. Although we did ours in May 2009 all ours still say is Received. Am sure i read on a post either on here or BE that someone only had to do their X rays again i think, has anyone heard of that? Murky

    Catchment areas??

    Hi Nim I contacted 2 schools by email in the area that my family and i were interested in and they responded very quickly by post. They could'nt have been more helpful. They also sent a lovely glossy prospectus that I could show the kids to get them involved. Hope this helps in some way Mrs Murky

    Hi, still waiting I thought the fact that we all had already been asked for police checks and meds that we already had a CO, but had shelved us for the time being. Is that not the case? all this waiting is rubbish Mrs Murky

    Hi Yeah I also think it would be a great sign if myself and family were asked to do them again soon no matter if bancrupts us all. I just wondered if anyone had any idea about what would happen about an extention? I asked my agent a couple of months ago about my ielts and they said don't worry about that the application is already in. Don't know what he meant, i probably should have pushed him further on that.

    How many cat 6 applied in 2008

    Hi All Just wondering how many 2008 applicants like myself did their meds and police checks last year and have now ran out? I was told by my agent that the aus gov could extend by a few months if they wanted to, but normally you would have to make the move within a year of the date of meds would'nt you. So would that only leave a couple of months to get there? murky

    Hi julie & gary Yes we were told to do police checks and medicals just after christmas 2009 but we asked for an extention on the meds and did them at the beginning of May, then about 3 weeks later our agents told us that it was a no go til 2010 at first. we wish that we hadn't held off with the meds now cos we were told back then once you had done your meds it was usually 6 weeks to getting your visa. We were gutted all that money down the drain. Now we will have to do them all again if they carry on with our case Mrs Murky

    Hi julie & gary I hope we are all somewhere at the top of the list and get in there before any of that starts to happen. We have wanted to go to NSW for a long time now and knew they wouldn,t state sponsor plumbers but we're hoping things might change in the near future with any new state migratioin plans.:unsure: Here's hoping, all fingers crossed Mrs Murky

    Hi julie & gary What trade/skills are you going on, and which state do hope to go to when you finally get there? Have you switched to SS? You seem to be in the exact same position as me and my family. We all need some good luck. Murky

    Hi All, I thought this was a 'How many Cat 6 in 2008' thread, not another Capping Bill one:frown: We don't want to be ambushed. Murky

    How many cat 6 applied in 2008

    Thanks We thought we had our first glimmer of hope on Friday morning, when i checked our application status on the gov website. Everything still says required on the checklist and says that they have received police checks and meds. I clicked at the bottom on visa status and the 'no current visa' had disappeared. So we got all giddy thinking our case was being looked at. But nooooo it was put back on the day after so back to square one. :confused: Murky

    How many cat 6 applied in 2008

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this site. I applied on a 175 as a plumber in June 2008, hoping to go to NSW. Myself, my OH and 2 teenage kids did police checks and medicals in May 2009. We were then told a few weeks later that we would be put on hold til 2012. We could not believe our luck. We hope things start moving again soon for all us catagory 6 applicants. murky
