  1. Hi, we arrived in Perth in November and have just moved to Tapping. We have a toddler boy (22 months) and are looking to meet others in a similar situation and hopefully some playmates for our little boy. Would be great to hear from anyone looking to make new friends. Lorraine
  2. Dear all, I was hoping that someone might be able to answer a query i have regarding what is meant by the DIAC requirement of recent work experience in your nominated occupation being required for 12 out of the last 24 months. Does this have to be consecutive? The reason i ask is that my wife is applying for SS to WA and has been on maternity leave since March this year. Our agent has told us that we need to get our visa application in before March 2012 due to the 12 out of 24 month rule. I have asked if this has to be consecutive or not as if it is not a requirement there is no deadline as she will be returing to work after one year and would have worked 12 out of the last 24 months at any time we apply. Hope someone can confirm that this has to be consecutive 12 months employed. Thanks.


    <p>can you please send me the info you submitted for WA SS. I am about to complete the application form and would like some guidance.</p>

    <p>Many thanks in advance </p>

    Thanks Bob, but have not yet filed for sponsorship. Still awaiting result of VETASSESS so hence slightly worried the list may change before we can file for state sponsorship.

    ACT, Canberra State Sponsorship - WHERE ARE YOU NOW

    Hi all, just wondering if any of you could clarify the following: our family is applying for ss to ACT through my wifes occupation. However she has been on maternity leave since March this year and are unsure of the criteria as described by the DIAC that she has to be in work "for at least 12 of the 24 months immediately before lodging your visa application". My question is that does this have to be in one complete 12 month continuous block, i.e do we have to ensure that our lodgement is before March next year or as long as she returns to work within a year she will pass the above criteria? Any clarification would be greatly appreciated Simon.

    ACT, Canberra State Sponsorship - WHERE ARE YOU NOW

    Can anyone tell me if office manager will still be on the list for ACT when it is revised? My wife is an office manager and we are just about to submit skills assessment. Hope we have time to get to ss stage soon and it does not come off the list!

    Office Managers in ACT

    Hi all, my wife and i are thinking of applying for a state sponsored visa to ACT. My wife is an office manager and currently this is a classed as limited on the occupation list and she will have to go through the verification stage and gain acceptance even before we can lodge an application for a visa. My question is that because she works for an engineering company will this make a difference bearing in mind the kind of industry in Canberra and will this be assessed as part of the verification criteria. Any advice from personal experince or otherwise would be greatly appreciated. Simon.
