    Need Suggestion regarding 176

    Dear All, I am preparing/collating documents like reference letters etc for ACS assessment and plan is to send docs to ACS for code "Computer Network and Systems Engineer - 263111" by end of Dec 2011. It gonna take max of 3 months and during this period i will try hard to achieve IELTS 7band each (my previous ielts L-7.5,R-6.5,W-6.5,S-7.5= 7Overall). So if everything goes ok, I will have both ACS assessment and IELTS in April. state nomination process will take another couple of months so I gonna be ready to file immigration by somewhere in June 2012 and will be left with only a month as, i heard, rules are going to be change in July 2012. I checked sponsorship availability for my occupation code for all states below and found only two states are open for sponsorship right now. Current Status of Occupation "Computer Network and Systems Engineer 263111" in states Victoria - Available North Territory - Available South Astralia - Special conditions applies Queensland - Not Available NSW - Not Available Australian Capital Territory - Not Available Tasmania - Not Available West Australia - Not Available First question, by the time when ACS respond me, do you really think these two states (Vic and NT) will remain open for nominations? Second Question, Is there a chance that the states that are closed for code 263111 at the moment, they will open before jully 2012? Third Question, With the education = Master in computer science, 7+ years experience of network,security, unified communications, some cisco expert level certs, age 30, do you think i should wait until july 2012 for new rules to come? Your input and comments will be highly appreciated Regards RamCis

  6. Hi all, I am currently in my 2nd year of Advanced Diploma of Hospitality. My first year is in Certificate III Patisserie. I haven't applied for TRA or such thing. My condition is: - I have 6 months work experience as a Part-time Baker before - Currently working as Casual Baker (been 3 months) - Will finish my 2 years course in next April - I started my course in April 2009, but i am not sure whether i am eligible for transitional arrangements as i didn't apply for TRA prior to 1st July 2010 Any options for me to get the PR here? (i don't want to move to another state). My current employer probably will be able to sponsor me in the future, but i would rather to get the PR on my own as i do not want to owe him. Any chance for me to get the PR? If i have to get it through sponsorship, what are the steps or condition i must follow? and please let me know whether i can apply for TR now as i have 6 months experience already. I am so in need of an answer Thank you very much for the help! God bless

    Need Suggestion about ACS!

    Hi all, I am a new bie here and just want to start my immigration process for Skilled – Independent (Migrant) visa (subclass 175). I need to ask some basic questions ( hoping you won't mind as these are basics for a beginner) I want to have an assessment from ACS, so before applying to ACS, I want to discuss it with experts here. Following are my credentials: 1) I have a recognized degree. ( Bachelor in Computer Science) 2) I have 4 years of experience in IT. (Programming - PHP) 3) I've chosen the code 2231-17 (as I think I am under this category) 4) I am attaching Employer References. (I've worked in 4 different companies during my experience. So I have 1 yr experience in each company). 5) I am attaching A Passport Copy and a copy of my resume. Please tell me about these points. Am I choosing the right ASCO-Code for me? Will ACS accept my reference letters as they have 1 year of experience on each of them? or they need something else? Will they require some particular format of resume or any other document? Which additional documents I can provide them to strengthen my case ? thanks in advance. looking forward for your kind responses, Waqas
  15. Hi I have been posting about my case officer disappearing. What happened was I sent off the medicals and just waited then more than 9 weeks of not hearing anything I tried to contact my CO to see what was going on. I got an auto reply from her email address saying she was away until Sept 2008! I paniced then thinking I had no CO and my application was gathering dust somewhere. I connacted the LCU to see what was happening to my medicals and the I contacted the Business centre my application was lodged at and asked about my CO. I got responses this time telling me the medicals were finalised and that I had a new CO. They gave me her name but no contact info. I guessed what her email address was and emailed her. That was over a week ago and I got no reply. So after suggestion from Gollywobber I rang the Australian High Commission in London. They told me I recieved an email on 8th Nov from my old CO telling me she was going on maternity leave and it gave me the contact details for my new CO. I hadn't recieved that email at all and I had been checking my spam folders and trash folder. After he finished doubting me he said he would forward me the email. When I got the email it contained the email address of my CO and it was exactly as I had guessed it was. So I emailed her again yesterday and still have no response. What should I do now? I was thinking of trying to ring the business centre tonight. I don't want to leave it too long or they'll all go on holiday and I won't heard for ages. I don't know what to say to them though I feel that I should have heard something by now and I just want to make sure that my application isn't ignored because of the change of CO. Maybe I am just being impatient and should leave well enough alone but I thought the CO should at least acknowledge my emails I am not demanding an answer just want to make sure the medicals got through to her and she is in fact responsible for my application. If any one has any suggestions about what I should say to them I would really apprecaite it. Good luck to everyone waiting. I hope a lot of people here get the good news before Christmas. :smile:
