Hi,

I just got a call from my immigratio agent that I can no longer apply for a SA state sponsored visa as graphic designers are out of the skill list (gutted!!) :mad:

Howvwer, they would like to proceed with 176 visa for ACT...I have done loads of research on the SA visa and about Adelaide, but have no idea about this new visa now...can anyone help me with this??? :confused:

any link about the requisites of this visa....the features....eligibility...anything???

Bad news on diwali eve....so dissapointed! :(

no they are not, infact if u speak to them (the contact details are in the site) they are most helpful, they talk to very politely and are helpful. but they are particular about documents including asset proofs.

yes they are very particular about the assets. the minimum is 20k main applicant and 10k every dependent. they asked us for bank statements twice. once we gave them active balance statement btu they asked for a 3 month statement again to check if we have the money since 3 months in our account.

your agent is right, u can give statements of your parents and give an affidavit form them stating they are willing to support you if you can not manage on your own.

Hi,
good to see you here. Well my NZ application was not accepted as they said I need more work ex. All this time they never mentioned all that and suddenly came up with that when I submitted my EOI.


Then I was going to apply for South Australia next month but u know wht happened.....now Im checking my eligibility for Canberra.

So, its been a roller coaster ride for me....

which visa r u applying for??

tough luck, hopefully Canberra will have graphic designers in their eligible list.

After spending close to 3 years on NZ application and putting up with their tantrums for all this while I have ran out of steam to pursue another visa application :p

Jokes apart ,my occupation is currently on MODL/CSL list, but what I hear from boarders is that it is soon going to be revised, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.I am looking at 175 visa.I was also looking at SS but the fund requirement is slightly steep and my parents after seeing 'racist Australia' on news channels would not be willing to give me fund's affidavit :D

I just applied for ACT myself, and have spoken with the people there on several occasions. They were insistent that we met the financial requirements, otherwise our application would not pass. Try and get exactly the amount the amount they require to give you application the best chance. Remember, the funds need to be in an account in your name for at least 3 months.

Hi MAt,

yes they have mentioned the eligibility for at least 20000 AUD but what confuses me is that they also mention that if you cannot arrange 20000 you should include a statemnt mentioning what other resources you have to survive for 1st 6 months in ACT.

Now my immigration agent is working on this thing and asking me to proceed with 10000 AUD and rest support from my parent's property and assets.

So im in a fix right now whether to proceed or not.

But thanks for your message!! :)
