Hi guys,

Thanks to each and everyone who had helped me out in filing my ACS application. I cant believe tht I got my ACS results. Last week my status changed to "Case Finalized". I was surprised when the post reached on Saturday.... Well below is my result description I have received the code 2231-79 (c# specialist) which is wht i had requested for.

"Your skill have been assessed to be suitable for migration under 2231-79 (C# specialist) of the ASCO code being the skilled occupation indication that you indent to nominate in a General skilled Immigration application. Based on the provided certified documentation it is the opinion of the ACS that the applicant has 12 months experience in C#. "

My doubt is Am I given CSL or MODL???

HI

congratulations, u r one step closer, now just check if 2231-79 (C#) is in MODL, if it is, you are in MODL, which means u r in CSL as well.

Hi Cintai:

You are on CSL+MODL. This line proves it:
the applicant has 12 months experience in C#

If you don't have that line then you are MODL only.

Good luck :)

HI again

I suggest u both take IELTS, setup a date for court marriage, because marriage registration takes lot of time, ours took 6 months. if u r lucky u might make it in 2-3 months but u wudnt want to waste time, would u?

U can not apply for the visa without a marriage certificate. our skill assessment was done in May, we applied for the visa in Sept, had to wait all along for the marriage registration.

Since the Passport remains the same for your spouse, its better to take the ielts now.

And remember the CSL can be reviewed an updated anytime, it is due anyways, I dont know if this would work but have u checked the option of applying for the visa at the earliest and later, once u have the marriage certificate, sending a change of circumstances form and add your spouse.. I dont know if this is possible but ask a few consultants if it is possible. in the meantime, find out about the time it takes for marriage registration, if u book a date fr court marriage, they give u 40 days time after getting a date with them, it is faster and easier that way to get the marriage certificate. check that option as well. had we knows ours would take so long, we would have gone the court marriage route.

Well what you are saying is true Anj.. Ours is a church wedding and wht we heard is tht there wont be any delay in getting the marriage certificate... will start working on IELTS by the time we finish our IELTS I guess our wedding will also be completed. Hope in OCtober release skill list my skill is available. Will try to collect more info on applying earlier.

but when u say church marriage, u anyways hv to get it registered with the local registration office, which is what takes time. ours was hindu marriage, we gave the pandit's letter, plus our pic, our parents affidavits plus they were present for all 10 visits tht we made at the registrars office, we even gave the invoice from the wedding venue. it was frustrating, specially when u r paying for the job, still they take their own sweet time.

that is the reason why i suggested court marriage. that gets u a certificate fastest, you can do it with consent of the respective folks and your church ceremony can be as planned.

Hey Anj,

I spoke with my priest and some of my friends,what they say is since ours is a church wedding according to Indian Christian Act once our wedding is over the very same day the Priest will issue the marriage certificate and that is sufficient for Visa processing. My friends have also got visa using such certificate only.

Cheers,
Cintai

I am not sure about this. U see, when we go for arya samaj wedding, they too give a certificate but the same has to be a registered wedding. the certificate they give wont be valid as far as my knowledge goes, even if u r married in AU, u have to have a valid, registered wedding.
why dont u ask an agent, you wouldnt want to run at the last moment and delay the process. In my knowledge they wont accept the letter.

online is the best, u get to check ur status too. i know a lot of people personally who did it online and managed well. infact our agent too filed online for us.
make sureu make pdfs of your documents documents, as in, say 5-10 docs in each pdf, tht makes it easier since u get a limited number of uploads
