Visa Update QLD

Recommended Posts

We are awaiting state sponsorship at the moment.

 

I am hoping to head out later this year or early next year.

 

I work with a multi national consultancy and have put in for a transfer. They have offices in Bris, so I may head out with a job.

 

How about you?

Not yet but a few discussions happening with a couple of consultancies my company used to have offices in Bris but closed last year, seems to be plenty of opportunities! Where are you based just now?

Congratulations

I also wanted to apply SS to QLD, but I don't have liquid funds to show at initial level, I have property and some cash. So applied SA.

Another update... managed to lodge just before the suspension today. Slightly nervous they may send it back, but crossing fingers and waiting now.

Sorry......Haven't a clue,:daydreaming: I'm a nurse and just lodged my visa application yesterday having been granted QLD SS. Hopefully someone else might be able to help or if you have recently been granted a 176 visa give us your timeline... PLEASE.

Good luck crowded house. x

Thanks. We got state sponsership in January. But we held off applying for the 176 visa because electricians were not on the skills list. We have to apply before the end of the year or state sponsership is cancelled. So just wanted to ask anyone if they knew what time scale we would be looking at and what group we fit into. Dont think General Electrician s are on Queenslands list at the minute! We have emailed the Visa people but they just cut and paste replys from the website, which is whats confusing us in the first place. We are not sure if having family on the gold coast (aunts, cousins, uncles) will help or speed up our application. :arghh:

Guest lauramartin27

Myself and my partner are just about ready to send off our application for a 175 Visa, I am a PE Teacher and so qualify under the SOL currently. We are obviously eager to move our application and the whole emigration process along and would like to know if anyone has any idea as to how long the Application may take to be processed. I am seeing alot of different responses based on Skills and Jobs etc so would like some advice on our circumstances please.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Laura
