Hi there,

 

KellyJamie recently had Tasmanian state sponsorship.. I dont believe it took them very long at all. The appear to have whistled through a few this year.

 

Good luck

Sorry, I should also say that we had been in contact with the Tassie department off and on for a year or so and met them in person while we were there so that may well have helped the process go quickly.

Wow, that was really quick but credit goes to your good planning and communication with the Tassie department. Have you got our visa yet?

Hi There,

 

those who have got SS from Tas...... Have you all had to "obtain job offer or strong interest from a local employer"

Its just we are looking at applying for SS from Tas but my partner is wanting to become self employed.

He has got his own garage over here so was just going to try and relocate and start business over there.

 

thanks and congrats to those who have got there SS. X

Does anyone know the how long it takes currently to get 176 visa from DIAC as Tassie SS applicant.

Congratulations!

 

No idea how long it takes. We submitted our 176 application on the 6th of June and the status hasn't been updated yet (although it's pretty soon admittedly!). I'll update the sticky thread when we have a CO assigned etc.

 

Good luck!

Thanks everyone. Please share once you get your visas. It's nice to see few families are moving to Tassie.

We submitted our 176 last September, got a C/O assigned a week before Christmas, had medicals in Jan and visa was granted early Feb.

 

Best of luck to all new visa hunters, we're just waiting on exchange of contracts on the house and then we'll be booking flights!
