Default NSW State Sponsorship Payment

Good day,

I'm trying to apply for NSW state sponsorship. On their website it says.

Skilled sponsored migration - NSW Trade & Investment: Business in NSW

Quote:
The following non-refundable application fees must be paid by bank cheque or money order payable to Industry & Investment NSW and enclosed with your application:

Skilled Sponsored Visas (Sub classes 176, 886)
$330.00 (including GST)
Applications received from offshore applicants will be exempt from the GST component. The fees for these applications will be $300.00.
Now my questions are:
1. Is the currency Australian Dollar or US Dollar? (sorry if this seems like a stupid question, I need to be sure)
2. I've talked to my bank and they said that they will only issue draft bank cheque if this is AUD, they can only issue bank cheque for USD. ( what is the difference between draft bank cheque and bank cheque?)
3. If I have my bank cheque, should I just send this thru courier together with my documents? is this safe? I've called UPS and they said, they are not allowed to do that but if I insist, it will be tagged as mailers risk and they have no responsibility if the money is lost during shipment.

Anyone done this before? Really need your input on this one. tia.

1) Obviously AUD.
2) for making payment... u can take international bank draft for 300$ with the correct 'payable to' and mention any local australia sydney branch. Bank staff would know the details.
3) Yes. Very much. DHL /UPS service is reliable and good. For proof take a xerox/ scan of the draft and keep it before sending it.

Good Luck.

In a Bank Draft there will be three sections.

Payable To - This will be the 'Industry & Investment NSW.....'

Sum of - 300 Australian Dollars

Payable at - This have to mentioned by the bank.

If you are taking the draft in BPI bank / Metro bank for example, the bank staff will be mentioning the payable at as the nearby BPI / Metro international partner branch. You have just make sure the payable at is mentioned in as a Bank in Australia, Bank staff will know what to mention in the payable @ field.

Good Luck.

Payable at should be Australia. this is how i entered when i got DD in Qatar. Other Bank details are entered by the Bank staff as most of the major banks have their account in with Australian Banks.

1. Is the currency Australian Dollar or US Dollar? (sorry if this seems like a stupid question, I need to be sure)
Ans It is australian Dollar

2. I've talked to my bank and they said that they will only issue draft bank cheque if this is AUD, they can only issue bank cheque for USD. ( what is the difference between draft bank cheque and bank cheque?)
ans. It is one and the same thing...Just make sure that the bank which they issue for is a major bank in Australia..

3. If I have my bank cheque, should I just send this thru courier together with my documents? is this safe? I've called UPS and they said, they are not allowed to do that but if I insist, it will be tagged as mailers risk and they have no responsibility if the money is lost during shipment.
ans. [COLOR="rgb(255, 140, 0)"]I have sent DDs in Courier before and it is safe.
no need to tell UPS about this.. Just tell them that there are documents inside the cover..
Since it is not actual money there is nothing illegal about it..Its a draft which can be cashed only by the person to whom you are issuing it to
