Just seeing if anybody knows the new rules on citizenship? I am now 4 years in Australia and 30 months PR . Can I still apply whilst it is still in process through parliament? If the new rules come in , will I have to do the English test as I am British passport holder. Thanks Dez
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatDear all, I would really appreciate any advice on this: I have received WA SS 2 days ago. It's time to apply now but I have some doubts what is the better option. If I apply for 176 visa, we'll get it in 1-2 months, almost no risks but we'll stick to the WA state. I like Perth, but somehow planned to get Master degree in Sydney first and maybe then settle in a smaller town. If I apply for visa 175, I won't have to stay in any state, we'll be independent in all matters and can study in Sydey. However, what bothers me the most is what happens with 1st July on our doorstep? I am an accountant and the profession is on the risk-list and maybe excluded on 1st of July from SOL. As soon as I have launched the visa before 01/07 they will have no right not to consider the application but they may downgrade the visa to Priority Group 5 and we will wait for ages. Is my understanding correct? Please help. Can't find anything saying what happens to those who have applied before new rules in place.
