WA SS 2011 - where are we now

Recommended Posts

Well, I'm very pleased to be joining this thread!

 

My IELTS results came through this morning and I've just completed the online application for WA State sponsorship.

 

Thanks to all those on here who have answered questions from others relating to settlement costs etc. Makes the whole thing very easy.

Good luck.... just to let you know once we had lodged our application to WA... it was exactly 4 weeks later that we got a CO..... a lot sooner than anticipated....so get ready for the STORM!!!! hahaha.... we lodged May 10th this year, CO June 10th.... Visa granted August 2nd..... Whirlwind...... moved out here 26th October!!!! so in 6 months time it could be you... hope it all goes quick and smooth for you... its a stressful and emotional journey :)

Our 176 visa was granted pretty quick also, we applied on 26th June, my husband was also granted a 457 sponsorship visa in July so we left the UK on that to arrive in Perth, whilst mid flight in August our 176 visa came through so we actually arrived as permanent residents instead of on the job sponsorship!

 

Very pleased!! Been here 10 weeks now and we have all settled really well, roll on summer!! :biggrin:

Hey, Sharon. The WA SS is $200. You will need to upload your (or the main applicants) CV and skills assessment result, the rest of the form is pretty easy.

WA SS application is easy and after you've completed the first step you can save it and come back at a later point. All the info you will need is available online.

 

Allow a couple of hours to do it and you'll be fine.
