Dear Friends,

I have got Subclass 475 Visa recently.Thank you all for your help.Special thanks to Kathy , Ali, Dhawal , Anjali , Chris and many of my friends who have helped me throughout the process. Here are my timelines:

ACS Applied - Sept 10
ACS Done - 20-Jan-2011
6 Unsuccessful IELTS attempts - Jan 2011 to Aug 2011
Applied SA State Sponsorship - 30-Aug-11
Got SA State Sponsorship- 28-Sept-2011
Subclass 475 E-application - 27-Oct-11
Medicals Uploaded - 10-Nov-2011
Got India PCC - 15-Nov-11
CO Assigned - 17-Nov-2011
Got verification call from Australian High Commission 21-Dec-2011
US PCC Rejected - 20-Feb-2012
Got US PCC - 10-Apr-2012
Got Grant Letter - 27-Apr-2012

Lessons learned :
1.Do NOT apply through consultant unless your case is very complex.
2.For US PCC always take fingerprints from professional fingerprint expert.Do NOT take them manually as FBI rejects them even if there is a minor mistake / ambiguity.
3.Read reread immi and this site
4. Never loose hope :)

I require to move Adelaide , SA before 5th Nov 2012.Can any one please help me to understand how is life , IT job market and climate in SA ?

Thanks,
Ajay
