Hey there...My sister is also applying for the skill assessment this week IA...Wel, she was also thinking about choosing from 475 and 176 because both are state and regional sponsors.But as for the benefits of the two, 176 has a lot of benefits as compared tto 475...So you and my sis are in the same boat...

Keep in touch.... :)

Hi

 

My WA State sponsorship took only a few days to come back! That was only a month ago. So you should expect a swift reply.

It seems the 176 visas are also coming back within 2 -3 months at the moment.

look at the post about august / september 176 visa by BigBob there are some timelines on there which might help.

Do you think you can apply as soon as you have sent the docs for assessment???? I am confused about the idea???? Should'nt we wait for the skill assessment result and after the result apply for the SS????

 

 

Can anyone clarify me please!!!

Hia

 

I mean I'm going to start the process ensuring we have all docs we need for the state sponsorship ready to go when we get the trade assessment and the ielts results back so we'll be ready to submit the SS then...

Hi

Sorry I have no idea about the SA processing times at the moment. If you follow some of the threads about visas in the last few months, lots of members put their timeline on the bottom of the post, so everyone can see how quickly (or not) things are taking.

I would wait for your skills assessment to come back first, just in case.

You could fill in all the forms, get all your documents ready etc, so you can submit straight away.

If you need IELTS exam, it might be worth looking into that, I had to wait nearly 2 months for an available date (Bristol )

Hi

 

We used an agent, however the state application form was straight forward enough. There is always a lot of form filling, loads of dates, documents, detail to find, but our agent didn't need to make any alterations before submitting, so I guess we could probably done the forms without an agent, but we didn't want to take any chances.

 

I would suggest going on DIAC web site, download all the relevant docs for SS, and start gathering all the information it asks for, there is always something you cant find and need to get a copy which can take weeks!!!

 

I found that on my SS forms I was repeating a lot of the info I had to put on my skills assessment (work history / qualification etc)

 

Let me know if I can help in any way.

Best of luck

That is one form you don't need an agent for - you just need common sense :wink:
