Glad to know Im not the only one feeling that way about the agent
I know SS is my best bet and I ve already applied. This is more of a backup plan, if my SS gets rejected as my job code is only open in Vic and NT. Vic I ve already applied to, and NT well takes 6 months or so.
Family SS wont get me any points but at-least I'll meet the minimum requirement for applying 176 as my Occupation is on the SOL 1-2, and I need one of these sponsorships.
Im seriously considering it because after July 1 2012 as per the new skillselect program there is no Permanent visa class for family sponsorship, only temp visa class....and frankly speaking I dont want to be a temp for 3 years then look for employer sponsorships and then apply for PR as per DIACs new rules in the far future...
