Hi Folks
I have been granted WA SS last week. I have also applied for VIC SS on March 5 and got an acknowledgement on 14 March.
Now I am confused that should I wait for VIC or go ahead with WA sponsorship and file 176. If I want wait for VIC, how long should I wait for. What is the most sensible cutoff date till which I can wait for VIC. I don’t want to mess up with WA SS as well by waiting too long for VIC (I don’t know I may get negative results also after waiting so long).
Further, is there any chance to change my state sponsorship after applying 176. Suppose, If I get VIC after applying 176 with WA, will it be possible to change it to VIC.
Your thoughts and suggestions are highly appreciated.

Thanks
SatymS

Hi Satyams,
Choice of Vic or WA is for you to decide. If you feel the job market is good for your occupation in WA, then go ahead with your 176 using the SS approval in hand, but if you feel Vic is better then I would say give it a week or two to see what the result of your application is to apply for 176.

CO gets allocated within 4 week's time for a 176 application. So if you plan to wait then make sure you have all the docs ready like the PCC & other employment reference letters. You can easily do the maths to make sure you dont step into July to avoid impact of any sorts on your application & are granted the visa by June itself.

And to answer your last question. NO, it is not possible to transfer your SS once you have applied for the visa.

Btw, whats your skill code?

Thanks for ur response.

I am not clear how the new changes are going effect my application. Can you throw some light on what are the implications of it if apply today for WA or apply for WA/VIC after 10 to 15 days

Have you done some research on the availability of jobs in the two states?

You have to remember that you will need to work in the state which sponsors you for atleast 2 years. So there is no point in going to a state where there is not much scope for your occupation.

You will have to decide what you think is best for you based on a lot of other factors as well. So good luck!! :)
