176 SS non-csl - where are you now?

Recommended Posts

Thanks so much for getting back to me Tasha!

So am I in a bad situation? It's ok to be honest-i'm getting depressed waiting! I started this process 3 n half years ago! staying with the parents-in-law and wondering if it's worth getting own place but not sure as have no idea when we might receive visa?!

My visa company just don't seem that helpful, should I complain-paid them enough!

Thanks lots

 

Hi Mrs Meea

 

Lets put it this way, a lot of people have been effected by the recent changes on 23rd September 2009. People who have state sponsorship and applied for the 176 visa are now in a priority list of No.5, before we were all No 2 but after the changes we have moved down the list and been told to expect to wait now until 2012 before applications are going to be looked at! So, sorry... its not such good news!

 

Please read the following thread as this explains a lot and will help you understand where in the process you will be! There is also a link to the Immigration Questions & Answers on the new changes.

 

http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/migration-issues/69397-new-changes-state-sponsored-migration.html

 

Your agent should have explained all of this to you. There are other ways to go up the list of priorities and that is to get an ENS (Employer Nomination Sponsor) but I have heard its hard for trades to get this as you need to have a 3 year contract from an employer. If however, you can find an employer who is willing to sponsor you in the trade you have applied for you will go to No.1 in the priority list and be processed very quickly!

 

I hope this is clearer for you.

Great thread TAZ!

I spoke to DIAC this morning. All non csl applications that are past the point of medicals and police checks are now frozen until a decision is made by the end of Oct (hopefully). Case officers hands are now tied until they are given further directives. I was told that the decision is in the balance as to whether these cases will be progressed.

From what George Lombard has written in a previous post on BE forum there are more than 2000 of us in this situation.

Hope this gives people a glimmer of hope.

Cheers

I think PIO needs a new forum ' the waiting room' , we're not really 'chewing the fat' , and unfortunately we're not really migrating any time soon either.

 

Otherwise the migration forum is going to get chock full of us loitering here for 3 years....and to be honest these threads are now the only ones i'm really interested in all the other migration bits now seem so irrelevant :unsure:

Hi Basil

 

Yes you could be right... lets hope it wont be 3 years though... lets hope that the immigration minister gets a bump on the head and puts everyone back on the CSL! Can't see that happening but we can live in hope hey!:cute:

 

In fact I am shocked that there are only 29 of us in total (2008 = 10 & 2009 = 19) on this thread... I thought that there would be a lot more of us in this situation!

 

I know a lot of people are still waiting for their SS to come through and they will join once they have recd this, but still... I really thought there was more of us!

I too was expecting a few more, however think how quick diac were getting through them before the changes.

 

Thinking back to before the CSL we were content with our place on 175 ( proberbly through ignorance ) It was only the removal of trades from the csl that prompted are change to SS, now SS has a lower prority I think there will be a large reduction in 176 applicants ( not forgeting the removal of trades by some states ).

 

I am begining to feel 176's wont be a huge group in coming months and maybe diac may just push us through.

 

I no Jamie posted the figures

 

State nominated with CSL, Unallocated 27, Allocated 720, Total 747

Family sponsored CSL, 1130, 279, 1409

All other CSL, 6335, 4289, 10624

All other State nominated, 3678, 0, 3678

MODL only, 12388, 0, 12388

Other, 15659, 0, 15659

Total, 39217, 5279, 44496

 

But are these for the year?? once granted are they removed from this list???

Has there been 3678 non CSL SS apps since they changed the rules ( i doubt it).

Before the change they were pushin them through within a couple of weeks from getting SS.
