    WA State Sponsership

    Skilled Migration IMPORTANT INFORMATION From 9 of March 2010, The State Migration Centre will no longer be able to accept or process sponsorship applications for off-list occupations for the Skilled Sponsored Visa. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) allocated 500 off-list places to Western Australia for the 2009/2010 Project Year and this quota has now been met. A quota of off-list places for the 2010/2011 project year is yet to be confirmed Taken from WA State Migration webpage. :arghh::arghh::arghh:

    State or job sponsership?

    I am very confused at the moment! Can anybody tell me how we go about getting state sposership for my partner who is an IT test analyst? Many thanks Also.......what is the possibility that we may be able to get him a job out there and have a firm sponser his visa application? Or am i dreaming?
  4. :biggrin:, hi all, can someone tell me in plain english , as to how the SS visas work?, i know everything is up in the air with the SOL and MODL and everthing else in between, till the new lists come out. i was planning on applying for a 175 GSM visa, but in case the new changes knock me off this track, im thinking the 176 SS visa route. I am just getting the last of my paperwork in order to send off to the TRA, to have my trade assessed. I should not have any problems getting a positive assesment, ( hope not anyways:biggrin:) . So lets say i do get a positive assesment, what next?, i have seen that Victoria has my chosen trade on there SS list from there list (july 2009) hasnt changed since then?, do i apply to Victora or fill out 176 forms from DIAC, and send them to DIAC?, do i need some sort of Vic State paperwork to accompany my DIAC forms? would i be right in saying that the 176 visa, means you should work and live in the chosen state for at least 2 years? , it is perment residence, and once granted you can enter and leave Oz for up to 5 years , before it expires?. SS means i am solely sponsered by the State, and not an employer?, and i do not need to have a job offer or job to be granted the visa? If some one could clarify these point i have made, that would be great, thanks:wacko:
  5. :jiggy: Hi Just wanted to tell everyone that our Queensland S.S has been was approved on 19th Jan 2010. Yipee!!!!

Im Sooooooooooo excited Jan & Dave Cook:yes:

    State Sponsership

    Dilemma..... Which State to chose, guess it's a personal thing really, but our Agent has asked us for our decision for SS. I am a Hairdresser and OH is a PC. The problem is that we can't decide on WA or SA. I spent ages in Perth and a shorter time in SA and loved both. My OH hasn't been to Oz before and doesn't want to be in constant hot heat and I don't really mind. I don't like spiders, but will get over it. The boys 6 and 5 will be fine and the dog, not sure about that one yet. Were not doing a reccie until the visa comes through. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    wa state sponsership

    Hi All just about to apply for state sponsorship and would be very grateful is anyone could give me some tips!!!!! :idea:
  13. Hi everyone. I have state sponsership from SA and will hopefully get my visa soon, (fingers crossed) Does anyone know the conditions of entry into Oz on this type of visa,(176) I know I need to live and work in SA for 2 years but does that allow me to work overseas. I am asking because I have been offered work in the Uk starting in June 2010 and finishing around 2 months later. I would like to take on the contract as it will mean more work in the future and some of that will be in Australia and Singapore which I plan to run through a company I will set up in Aussie. I had my health and police checks carried out in June 2009 so I will have to go to Oz to "activate" my visa by June 2010 before returning to the Uk in July to carry out the work. Is this possible. The money could be paid into my Aussie bank account if this would help. Sorry for waffling on.:chatterbox: Cheers Chidge

  21. Hi im pretty new to this site, but its helped me out with a few things. Ive been in Australia for 9months now on a working holiday visa, ive worked 6months of that as an electrician. i dont have a queensland licience. I thought i would be able to apply for residancy when i was in australia, and get some sort of bridging visa while my application was being processed. Ive now found out it takes 12 months to process and i have to leave the country!:arghh: Im a hard working Northern lad, i served my time as an apprentice with Haden Young back in the UK, and they kept me on for 3years after that. The reason i left was to come out here. I really do not want to go home, ive got a girlfriend out here now, shes getting sponsored. I have fell in love with Brisbane and the Australian way of life. If anyone can help me, please please please get in touch Thanks Dean

I have great advise from Gollywobbler and been reading info and links that she passed on . Ive just a few questions if anyone can help , we are thinking about getting state sponership (WA) and are wondering if you need a minimum amount to take into the state ( I think I read you need 60,000 aud for NT ? not 100% sure if I read that right ) like I said trying to absorb alot of info . Also I take it you dont need a license ?? (if your state sponsered by WA)Im a brickie , but do you need a blue card ? Hope someone can help Thanks Dave:smile:
