  1. Hi All, My name is Renil and I am from India, Toolmaker by profession. I lodged my PR visa application [VE175] in August 2008 and joined for my higher studies after couple of months. I did not work for the past 2.5 years and have been engaged in my full time studies. My IELTS validity is expired back in March 2010, in which I had 6.5 in all the 4 components. Can anyone please help me on below queries - 1] Can I apply for a state sponsorship for converting my visa application from 175 to 176? 2] If yes, Do I need to retake my IELTS for the sponsorship application? 3] On converting the application from 175 to 176, what date will DIAC consider for the recent work experience - 175 to 176 conversion date / initial visa lodgment date? Any suggestions on these queries would be a great help for me!!! Thanks in Advance Renil Thomas :smile:
