Hi All,

I have a question on the DIAC Application.

If i apply for GSM 175 without State Sponsorship now and later if i get SS couple of months after the 175 application filed date, would i be able to convert my 175 to 176 in the website?

Is there a seperate process to be followed in this case?

Your expert advice in this regard will be much appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,
Mani

You cannot make this convertion if you apply after july/10.

In this situation, you can only apply again (and pay to DIAC again).

Thank You, Any idea the timeline for successful 176 application grant from the date of application? Is it 6 to 9 months ?

Regards,
Mani

Must be something around that, but it DEPENDS of the case always.

Some people, especially those from Pakistans, have to wait for extensive security checks (which can take more than a year). But a 'clean' application should give you the visa around 6 months after you had lodged it.
