  5. I have been granted the 175 independent in Sep 2010, I plan to move to Oz, but am finding it difficult to move before Sep 2011... The reason for thinking of moving in before/in Sep 2011, is the 4 years of stay requirement for citizenship.... My question is what if by the validity of my visa i.e. Sep 2015, I cant complete the 4 years required for citizenship........

  8. Sponsorship for offshore applications The Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship suspended accepting offshore General Skilled Migration visa applications from 7 May 2010 until 30 June 2010. Applicants will only be able to lodge an application after 1 July 2010 if they have been assessed for an occupation on the revised national Skilled Occupation List (SOL). The Northern Territory will put in place a State Migration Plan and will publish a Northern Territory Occupation List with that plan. This list will contain a number of occupations that are not on the national SOL. The target date for the Northern Territory's State Migration Plan is 1 September 2010. Processing of all offshore sponsorship applications has been suspended until the Territory Migration Plan comes into effect. All applicants for Northern Territory sponsorship will be required to demonstrate that they have positive employment prospects in the Northern Territory even if their occupation is on the shortage list. :eek::eek:
  9. Hi to everyone, Does anyone know why Immi gov au web site removed “What’s New section of 23rd September - CSL and priority processing directions” ?? Thanks to all in advance Nata :hug:
  10. Dear Friends I'm 176 non-csl As I have had changes in my application status even after Sep 23, I thought of starting a new thread if anyone wants to share about their application processed after 23/09 and got any clarification on it. My Evidence of Specific Work Experience and Evidence of work experience were confirmed "received" on 13th of Oct. The immediate reason for starting this thread is my friend called me up today and told about he found "met" in few of the requirements on 28th of october. Does it mean that these applications are still being attended by COs? Pls share your views regards jains
  11. Hi all, I applied for 475 visa, SS+CSL on Jun 09. Got CO on Aug 18, every documents received on Sep 12. After that nothing new... Although as new processing priority, my application is on #2. So anyone who like my case please show your timeline? Just to know and wait together! Thank you

    Late News 1 Sep - UK Tops List

    AUSTRALIA'S permanent migration report, released yesterday, shows that the United Kingdom remains the country's biggest source of permanent migrants, followed by India and China. Bucking a historical trend, the UK's share of the permanent migration program increased 9 per cent in the year ended June 30
  13. Hello everyone, I was at a bit of a loose end last night & in a rather sad & obsessive manner I pulled some info from the beupdate website. Using the 175 visa applications only (as that is the one we have applied for) from September 07 as it seemed a good place to start to April 08 (as that is when we applied) I extracted all the applicants. Then I removed the following applicants as they were not relevant to the info I was trying to deduce. Those with visa granted, those that stated they were from a high risk country, those that had not updated with either a pre aknowledgement date or an acknowledgement date (if they had one or the other I kept them) Both paper & online applications & modl & non modl are included. What I was aiming to get to was how many applications were listed & how many had COs. Quite why I decided I wanted to know this I don't know but the result was quite cheerful. 201 applications listed. 59 have case officers 44 of the 201 are paper based (including us) 8 paper based have case officers. Does anyone find this info useful / interesting? I am happy to update the results once a week & post them in this thread. Please let me know if you would like to see the info. Alternatively, please feel free to send mocking replies on how I should get out more often. Cheers Jaq
  14.

  15. Hi everyone, Today's Daily Express (pages 28 & 29) has a big article on mass migration into and out of the UK. They say that Leicester is going to be the first City that will have a white minority within the next 12 years and that people no longer recognise the UK as the country they once knew. Tell us something we don't know!! The UK government could learn a lot from the Aussies & the Kiwis when it comes to controlled migration. We are all prepared to 'jump through hoops' to get into Oz, so why doesn't the same apply for people coming into the UK? The debate continues.........
