    ACT or SA

    Hi All I applied for ACT state sponsorship in May 2011.. They have sponsored me this month after three months ...While I was waiting for ACT application outcome I got my new skill assessment from ACS and luckily that code was in SA SMP list... So just as a backup option (whatever) I applied for SA state sponsorship and am expecting an outcome of it this week...I did all this just to make sure I have sponsorship from at least 1 state before quotas get filled up as my past experience with SS was bad (I got rejected from Victoria after 6 months of waiting- no demand;sure waste of time). I am waiting for SA SS outcome as personally I prefer to go to Adelaide over Canberra as Canberra has job complications( security clearance issues). I am not sure what do I do with ACT sponsorship if I get approved from SA? Is there any need to tell ACT CM Department that I wanna withdraw or something? I am scared to tell them as they asked in application form "Have ya applied for SS in any other state which at that time I answered "no" but later on i did and never updated them. Is their any need to update ACT or they gonna update DIAC or something?I am not sure what to do at this point. I am kinda worried and need help. thanks in advance regards Bob

    ACT or SA

    Hi lebourvellect Case is exactly same as you mentioned but if you remember I am scared to tell ACT of same reason as per my previous post...I signed that declaration which said have I applied to any other state...and I said no...after 2 months I did applied to SA and never updated them... I just need to know if that will have any bad impact on my SA 176 application... thanks Bob

Guys ACT requested me furthur documentation on July 17,2011 which were : New ACS Assessment;My old code that I applied sponsorship with was ASCO 261399(nec) No more than 6 Jobs with no security clearance and australian citizenship requirements Updated bank statements for last 3 months. Luckily I had my new assessment and that code ICT Security Specialist was still in ACT sponsorship list when I applied in May 2011. They closed all ICT Professionals in updated July 2011 State Sponsorship List. I sent them the complete set of docs on 30 July.Now, It has been almost month since I haven't heard from them.They said as per official e-mail if they dont get the docs by 18th Aug 2011 they would reject me. I haven't got any acknowledgement or anything I really dont know what to do now.:arghh: Today is the D' Day and I am really worried.:cry:
