westwoodwizard posted a topic in Visa ChatI started this thread because there are so many people who talk about Skilled Sponsored 176 and they are referring to State Sponsored Skilled which is not the same as Family sponsored which is rock bottom in priority processing thus I have started this thread for those who have applied for and are still waiting for a case officer with respect to the GSM 176 Family Sponsored Offshore Priority 5 classification or for anyone with any insight to when if at all do you think these will ever get processed. The website shows an allocation date of January 2008 which is the time DIAC put a halt to the processing. I also keep reading onshore gets processed ahead of offshore based on application date. What does that mean? Finish all onshore before they ever get to offshore? Well...that may never happen since people continue to apply. We applied in April 2009 offshore for the Family Sponsored 176 visa and are in Priority 5. Please provide your thoughts and insight for this particular visa situation. I know I am not the only one.
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.
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHello I really need some help to make a good decision so please help me out~ My application is on the priority 5. (State sponsorship but not listsed on CSL) Do you think i will be able to get the visa before 2011 or by Jan 2011?? (I will be lodging the application this nearly november) I am currently holding a de-facto visa and i can apply for the (2nd stage) permanent visa some time in april or may next year. But this will take another 4 to 7 months so i am not sure if it is a better idea to apply for the 886 visa to get the visa faster. Do you think i should apply for the 886?? I seriously can not do much without PR..
Hi All, I like many others have been affected by the new Priority Changes made on 23rd September:arghh: Have you been Requested to get your Medicals and police checks? Are you in the final stages of your application (all docs Met and Meds Finalized)? Are you going to lie down, or do you want to be heard? The more people that say something about how unfair it is to process our applications just prior to finalization and then put them on hold! The more likely he is to listen. After all he is a Senator, surely his actions should only be fair If you feel you should have a voice please join my campaign!!! I have decided and as advised by my agent to mount an Email/Letter campaign to: Senator Evans as the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship He is the individual responsible for this!!!
