Can't believe the speed - Visa granted

Recommended Posts

After what we thought was the show stopper when my skill was removed from the SOL in the July 2010 changes, I logged onto the DIAC site yesterday to be greeted with the news that my 176 for myself and my family has been approved!

Can’t believe how quickly it went through in the end since SA released their state sponsorship scheme in Jan. The heartache of believing it was all over in July was worth it now as we would have never gone down the state sponsorship route.

Now all of a sudden the activation end date of May 2012 looks so near. Better start making lists of what to do next as I didn’t want to jinx the process and make one before.

 

Best of luck to all those still waiting to hear.

 

Today is a good day! :biggrin:

Here's the timeline if anyone's interested.

 

 

  • ACS Application 24-04-10
  • Suspension of GSM applications 08-05-10
  • ACS assessment passed 22-06-11
  • Skill removed from SOL 01-07-10
  • SA releases State Migration Plan 05-01-11
  • SA SS online application 13-01-11
  • SA SS granted 24-03-11
  • 176 Visa Application 31-03-11
  • CO assigned 02-05-11
  • 176 Visa granted 10-06-11
