Dear All,

I have cleared my ACS assessment cleared few months ago & they have placed me in MODL (i.e. 1. CISSP , 2. Network & internet Security Specialist). I have two Questions. My tentative date of apply is Jan 2010.

1. Is that MODL is going to change at the end of this year 09 or jan 2010?

2. I came to know Victoria State is offering Visas for IT specialist (If i go apply for State sponsorship) Is this True?

Thanking in Advance.

Regards,

Arshad Ali

Hi Arshad..

IMHO.. Since you have cleared the ACS assessment..its better to apply ASAP.. Better not to wait till the next modl change.. If there is any change for your skill set.. then it will be a problem.. Its just my opinion.. u better check with others also and decide..

Regardless of when the MODL changes (no one knows the exact date when the new MODL will be decided and announced), you need to be aware you will be able to lock in the bonus points for having a MODL specialisation if your specialisation is on the MODL at the time your visa application is lodged with DIAC.

While people are worried about processing priorities, it's also important to remember that points are associated with having a MODL specialisation and some people rely on these points to meet the passmark.

Good luck.

Regards
Peter

Hi All,

First of all Thanks alot, Sunil & Peter. Actually i am completing some of my documents and their is some delay (approx 3-4 weeks, procedural delays:mad:). That's why i might be able to apply in 2nd or 3rd week of Jan, 2010.

One thing i would like to ask about Victoria, "Is that Victoria State offering Sponsorship letter to IT Specialist".

Actually i came to know about this news through my resources.

Regards,

you can check the victoria skill list, if you are in it, you can apply and wait for a grant from them, if you do get ss fmor victoria, you fall in 2nd priority. no harm checking, if you have to wait for visa, you should go ahead and apply for the vic sponsorship.

Hi Arshad,

First of all congrat on getting +ve assessment in MODL, as far as Victoria or anyother state concern, make sure u would need to show a cash amount near about 20K for primary applicant, further confirm by your desired state.

Only victoria , NSW and most probably one other state (I think it was WA, but not sure) included IT as their demanding professions in their respective State List.

Again all have different stipulations, like NSW required atleatst 7band in all cat. of IELTS, as well as they have limited IT specializations, whereas Vic & WA(if i am not wrong) have the same list of specialization in IT as per DIAC MODL.

Why u want to constrain your self to a limited area, 175 is a better choice, and now a days 176 & 175 with CSL both are taking more or less same time.

Its better advice from all seniors to apply at your earliest, who knows about future, by the what docs u are awaitng for ?

All the best! :)

What documents are you completing? If you apply online you will have some time to upload your docs, so apply as early as possible.

Hi,

Thanks Dear, i wanna apply ASAP but some document were missing(e.g My birth Certificate:) & IELTS etc) . Now only thing left is My wife & mine IELTS score(and IELTS test is going to be held in mid of next month (no availability before that).

I was about to apply with out IELTS as i was thinking that i'll submit it later but then i came to know that has a negative impact on Visa Processing. Therefore i have to submit IELTS score at the time of application submission. That's why i am expecting that i'll be able to submit my application in last week of Jan,2010.

Regards,

Arshad Ali
