Hi Big Bob,

I was wondering if you have mentioned in your application to ACT about your SMP application to VIC. If yes, do you think it might in some way affect the outcome. I am asking because that's exactly my case.

 

Welcome qsar1 to the thread :wubclub:

In relation to your question I think you should justify why you applied Canberra after Victoria... you can say VIC smp was launched 1st so by the time ACT SMP was released I had already applied there :) You can show your commitment as well with good research for Canberra..

 

cheers!

Bob

Hi Bob

 

Are you using your old skills that is 2231-79 to apply for ACT?

 

I received the email to VIC this week and was rejected due to no demand. Although I wasn't going to look at ACT due no funds. I have funds sitting in different accounts? Would I be able to send seperate statements? I haven't read the guidelines but could you advise how much fund you need to show for the assessment via statements

Bob,

 

You know, this time I have jumped without a safety net ! I have applied for 261399 code which is a useless one unless I get approved by ACT SMP. If ACT rejects me, its bye bye Oz as 261399 isn't any SMPs (except VIC and ACT who already rejected me), plus I don't make 65 points under the new points system even if I score 8 each in IELTS.

 

Also, the timing is a matter of concern.. If DIAC stops accepting applications BEFORE I get ACT SMP - bye bye OZ.. If I DIAC stop accepting application AFTER I get ACT SMP but BEFORE I get ACS accreditation - Bye Bye Oz. If I get ACT SMP approved, but ACS doesn't give me my letter before June 30th - Bye Bye Oz. If ACS doesn't give me 261399 code - bye bye Oz. I applied to ACS on 20th April, documents were received by them on 25th. If the 12 week rule is imposed, I don't think there is enough time for a result BEFORE June 30th!.

 

So you see, its more a matter of luck than anything else.

 

Victoria has really screwed me over this 2nd time, I should have applied to ACT in November, I could have used my old ACS, I would definitely have filed my 176 by now. They wasted my precious 3 months while they kept my hopes alive...

 

Wish me good luck as luck is all I need now!

 

Cheers,

What I think is you can request a code for software engineer from ACS and then update ACT about it... I think that seems like a good plan rather than going through the whole process again.. I am sorry mate but look at me... VIC screwed me 5 months and then sent a letter of no demand...over that they say if you have a job we can reconsider it...Damn they dont understand that if I have a job why wont i use ENS rather than taking your sponsorship... I already suggested you to do the same.try it...Better make more possibilities rather than just wait and watch....:Randy-git: comeon !!! and my wishes are always with you mate... don't worry:wubclub:

I am sorry to hear about VIC man...they have spoiled lot of aspirations so hard luck there.Yes I am using my old assessment.Yes you can show funds from different accounts provided you fill that form and add everything for the assets, cash and everything.I will suggest you to go through the attachment. I will attach the specifics for you.You need to have at least $20,000 AUD and $10,000 AUD immediate transferable cash.

thanks

Bob,

 

I spoke with the good lady at Skills and business Canberra, and unfortunately, the code cannot be changed during or after processing of state migration application. What I have done is after giving it a long thought and was the best that could have been done.

 

Lets see what happens.

 

Thanks a lot for your support mate!

Hi Bob,

 

Thanks for the info. I am currently going through the paperwork. Just need to make sure I get the financial requirements spot on.

 

Debating whether I should wait for my ACS results as it's with the assessor. They rejected my nominated occupation and instead suggested Systems Administrator.

Hey POMS

 

I am starting a new thread for new ACT, Canberra State Sponsorship program (Just like my friend Uli started for Victoria).

 

Guys any of you in ACT thread could updated their sponsorship status as :

Date of SMP application:

Trade/profession:

Visa type:

Delays/further docs requested:

Visa Filed:

Comments:

 

While your application is being processed by ACT this would be our color code:

Hey POMS

 

I am starting a new thread for new ACT, Canberra State Sponsorship program (Just like my friend Uli started for Victoria).

 

Guys any of you in ACT thread could updated their sponsorship status as :

 

Name:

Date of SMP application:

Trade/profession:

Visa type:

Delays/further docs requested:

SS received:

Form 1100 Uploaded:

Visa Filed:

Comments:

 

While your application is being processed by ACT this would be our color code:

ACT Sponsorship Applied : Green

ACT Sponsorship Approved : Purple

ACT Sponsorship Rejected : Red

Visa Filed :Orange

Comments :Black

 

I am sure all ACT applicants(Successful and Awaiting results) can pool in and figure out where our ACT applications are headed and how many people are in queue for the same.

All the very best for ACT state sponsorship to you people !

 

Thanks and regards

Big Bob

@BigBob

Thanks :spinny:

In my receipt it is written my processing status is Lodged-Normal Priority. Is there anyone who has a different priority?

Hey Sohc

They give high priority to applications with job offers.If you look at journeydownunder's details on page 2...You will see she had an offer in hand from an employer in Canberra and hence she had sponsorship results asap in a month :biggrin:
