Hi,

I have applied for ACT SS on Nov 3rd, 2012 and payment acknowledged on Nov 6th. My story so far goes like this:

1) ICT Business Analyst - 261111 (Total Exp - 7+ yrs, Post-qualification exp - 2 yrs). Even though ACS recognised 7+ yrs in assessment, I decided not to take risk and have not considered experience points.

2) IELTS Score (L-9, R-9, S-7.5, W-7.5). I re-attempted IELTS and scored (L-9,R-9,S-9,W-7) :-(. Ended up with 55 points.

3) I had earlier applied for SA SS but it has a lengthy waiting time and after doing some online research, found Canberra more suitable. Hence, I withdrew my application from SA and applied for ACT SS.

4) My only inhibition in my application to ACT is around financial declaration. In haste, I didn't account for all my savings and even though I have shown AUD 48K (2 dependents). I have accounted for Jewelry and Car (AUD 15K)...so a bit concerned.

Still waiting for a CO to be allocated

An update to my ACT SS application ---

I received an email today (29/11) that a CO has been assigned by ACT Migration team.

Any ideas how much time does it take for ACT SS (190) once a CO has been assigned?

1. IELTS Score card
2. ACS Skill assessment results
3. CV
4.Work experience references (same as submitted to ACS)
5.Delcaration of nomincation Obligations
6.Research into current ACT employment opportunities
7.Commitment to Canberra statement

Hi deepuz.

Cool. I'll PM u my details.

Nope. The CO didnt ask for any docs other than what I uploaded initially...the same list as yours plus Evidence of other state nomination as I had applied for SA SS earlier.

I think your appl result will be out by jan end due to the holiday season.

Best of luck!

hi amittal..when did u apply for EOI ? was it before u got reply form ACT !!!
I think its better to have your EOI ID upfront and provide it while applying for SS...then you will get invite straight away once SS is approved..

Hi, I had applied for ACT SS in May 19th 2012 and granted on September 3rd 2012. Just came across this post whist booking my flight tickets to Canberra, Leaving on the 2nd of April 2013 for the new start.
I did apply while individually without the help of any agent, was quiet a smooth process, Ensure you read all instructions carefully and give them specifically what they need. I also noticed that i did write to them for the simplest of doubts I had, and their response and assistance was overwhelming. Do not hesitate to ask them about anything.

Also would like to get in touch with people moving to Canberra from India. am available on Y! arun_jc do add or share details.. Thanks

Cheers,
Arun

Hi Arun,

Congrats and all the best for your future in Canberra. My visa has also been approved early January.

Did you send an email to ACT SS team notifying your visa grant and date of arrival in Canberra? I have done so and got an acknowledgement from ACT SS team via email. They asked for my visa grant letter for their records.

I plan to make a move sometime in Nov-Dec this year.....

Have you got a pre-arranged job already or planning to search once there? Also, have you shortlisted a short/long term accomodation in Canberra already??

I did some research online for home rentals and it seems quite expensive in Canberra...i.e. 1 BR aptt for around AUD 350 - 450 per week!!!

Keep us posted on your journey! :)

Hi Deepuz,

They didn't ask for my bank statement so don't think it'll be required.

Yes. I had submitted EOI before applying for ACT SS and had to mention the EOI ID in SS application form!
