  2. Hi everyone, its a long time since I last posted, so long I've forgotten my account details and the email address I was using! Anyway I'd almost given up hope of ever getting a visa or getting our money back after applying back in August 2008, but yesterday I received an email from DIAC - probably a lot of people did as it was pretty generic but it basically directed me to the SMP program. Since I haven't kept up to date with all the changes since late 2009, I had no idea what is was or the options available but on investigation it appears my job - ANZSCO 262113 is on the SMP list for NSW! So the question is, is this a valid route i.e. apply for sponsorship, change visa to 176, move to cat 3 and get a visa within 12 months? or is it risky, its another $300 and since they had $2100 four years ago, then changed the rules and kept the money, is it possible they could do the same thing again? If you successfully get sponsorship do they have to change the 175 to a 176? Is it possible they will change the rules for 176 processing or are they trying to get through the backlog so they can move on the new Skill Select system? I know nobody can give definitive answers but has anyone any experience of doing this recently? Thanks Rob
  3. Dear All, I just noticed that my occupation have showed up on the recent SMP of SA as "off-list" occupation. Does it mean that SA finally treated all applicants who were granted state sponosrhip back in 2009 and we will get normal priority? Pls confirm me if you are sure, that we are now moved from new Cat 5 to new Cat 3. If so, this is SO BRILLIANT NEWS, isn't it??!! :wub:I was feeling so sick having the state sponsorship of SA and be in the lowest priority all the time! This is the quote from DIAC web site: Applications from people who are applying under the RSMS are processed as priority group 1. Those applying under the ENS are processed as priority group 2. Applications from people who are nominated by a state or territory government agency with a nominated occupation that is specified on the state or territory's state migration plan receive the third highest level of priority processing..... As a transitional arrangement, applicants who were nominated by a state or territory government for an 'off-list' occupation prior to the implementation of state migration plans will also receive processing under priority group 3. http://www.immi.gov.au/media/fact-sh...ty_skilled.htm Please let me know.. Thank you in advance Nata :hug:

    NSW State Sponsorship list updated

    Hi All Just to let you know the NSW State Sponsorship list has been updated and they have actually added some new occupations to their limited list. http://www.business.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0010/5788/STNI-Update-List-of-Occupations-22.09.11.pdf :biggrin:
  9. Hi All, may be a bit soon to ask, but does anyone have any ideas whether the state sponsored lists will continue under the expression of interest scheme they are planning to bring in? Thanks

    SA SMP Finalized...

    dear all, according to SA immi web site, SA SMP and SSML have been finalized. but when i looked at the SMML, i got confused because i believe it's the same SSML posted in july. i'm sad because my nominated occupation is still in the offlist. can some one clarify this. thanks. 3jps
  12. I can't quite believe this! I keep reading and re reading his page :unsure: http://www.migration.wa.gov.au/SKILLEDMIGRATION/Pages/Occupationsindemand.aspx and it clearly shows 'welfare worker' is on WA SMP and is AVAILABLE! Am I dreaming? So this potentially means we can apply for SS and be moved from Cat 5 to cat 3?!!:jiggy: Somebody pinch me please!

    Smp rules

    I have applied for off shore permanent resident visa in July 2008, I applied as Corporate General Manager and I saw this profession is in demand in SA. I have few queries before I apply for this. IELTS exam which I took at time of submitting my application was then valid, Do I take again to apply with SA. My skills were assessed then I don't have to do again? I have not worked or lived in SA is that ok. I look forward to any replies. I appreciate your time. Warm Regards TR
  15. Hi there I know the new SOL comes into effect on July 1. However there are a few different schedules of the SOL now, can someone explain why? Also, I am studying I.T, I have already done 1 year in 2010 and am going back next july to do my 2nd year (Diploma) in I.T. Have all the I.T occupations been taken off the SOL and the MODL, because I keep hearing about other lists of occupations in demand for the State Migration Plans? Can anyone kind of put it simply, I've read loads of info on immi.gov and its just bouncing around not making any sense! :err: Thank you Take Care :cute:
  16. Hi to all previous SA SS holders Here's what I got from DIAC from asking them about the exact Category I belong to after my occupation is in the SMP but tagged as OFFLIST. My enquiry: and their REPLY: Ok. Ill fire inquiry to SA right now. Whatever. Pffftt

    South australia smp july 2011

    Hello, All PIO members Please find below link for South Australia Smp 2011. http://www.immigration.sa.gov.au/applyonline/skilled/planning_level_status.php Also please anyone clear my doubt If my Occupation is in offlist criteria. Am I elegible for cat 3 or not? Regard's jackd.:notworthy:
  19. Dear All, I just noticed that my occupation have showed up on the recent SMP of SA as "off-list" occupation. ( i have received SS back in 2009). Does it mean that SA finally treated all applicants who were granted state sponosrhip back in 2009 and we will get normal priority? Pls confirm me if you are sure, that we are now moved from new Cat 5 to new Cat 3. If so, this is SO BRILLIANT NEWS, isn't it??!! :rolleyes::wub:I was feeling so sick having the state sponsorship of SA and be in the lowest priority! This is the quote from DIAC web site: Applications from people who are applying under the RSMS are processed as priority group 1. Those applying under the ENS are processed as priority group 2. Applications from people who are nominated by a state or territory government agency with a nominated occupation that is specified on the state or territory's state migration plan receive the third highest level of priority processing..... As a transitional arrangement, applicants who were nominated by a state or territory government for an 'off-list' occupation prior to the implementation of state migration plans will also receive processing under priority group 3. http://www.immi.gov.au/media/fact-sh...ty_skilled.htm Please let me know.. Thank you in advance Nata :hug:
  20. Hi DIAC has edited its processing time table and has included other visas categories which were forgotten in the last announcement. For instance the 176VE applicants who were included in SOL and off from SMP list were not listed in the first announcement and many believed that those applications will be considered in Cat5 and now are included in Cat4 which is a good news for them. There are some other changes in the table which can be seen through the following link http://www.immi.gov.au/about/charters/client-services-charter/visas/8.0.htm
  21. All Now it seems that WA SMP is imminent, let say late next week, this thread is for Accountant to keep in touch and check status until succeeded Please let each other know, how many have SS issued and awating SMP? and How many are planning to appky first time? Cheers to All Accountant Note: WA SMP may have one condition, Seven years of Exp ( and yes, IELTS 4 X 7)
  22. Hi My application is a 176 skilled sponsored. If my occupation is on SOL and if it is taken off from the state SMP list then what will be my application category ? I remember DIAC had mentioned it will be on cat3 before July2011 changes But after July 2011 DIAC has not mentioned any thing regarding this issue Regards
