Dear Folks,
Now am all set to apply for state sponsorships. I have done my research and convinced myself that three states (VIC, WA and ACT) are suitable for my profession and social life. I have friends and professional opportunities for my occupation.
Can somebody confirm me if I can apply for three state sponsorships simultaneously? Now I have very little time as the massive changes are around the corner. However, I am bit scared that generally each state is taking 6 to 8 weeks to respond. So, I will not be able to apply for another state if I get a negative result from the state after waiting 6 to 8 week.
I was thinking of applying for all three states simultaneously, but am not sure if it’s possible technically.
My agent told that I can’t apply for more than one state at a time as they may cross check and reject the file.
Folks…, am really confused and I don’t want to be struck up with new rules. Guys pls help me in taking this decision.

Thanks in advance
SS

You can definitely apply for all 3 states simultaneously. But applying if they ask have you applied for different state, please say 'yes'. There are many forum members who has sponsor from 2 states. so, technically it is possible.

If you fear that your app might get rejected due to multiple apps, then first try for WA as they might give you results very very quickly. There are cases where they replied in few hours to 2-3 days also. Try your luck with WA ...

You'll face rejection from all of them if you do.

How can you reasonably say you are committed to living and working in that state if you have applied elsewhere? And they'd know even if you didnt tell them because Government departments, especially in Australia, share information.

I agree

We were set on SA, but after we had lodged they announced that they were closed for my profession so we lodged for Vic and NSW immediately. NSW immediately rejected because I didn't have an IT degree, we still waiting on Vic, and in the meantime SA came back +ve even after they had closed so it is possible

I've seen many get rejected specifically because they have not shown a commitment to living and working in the state by applying to other states. It's for the same reason many states say on there websites that if you are applying onshore but living and working in another state you should not apply or prove even more so your intent to move their and live there.

Maybe some states are more sticky than others. I know we had to write a motivational letter for SA which was fine as this was our first choice. NSW and Vic didn't ask for one..Vic was the only one that asked if we had applied to another state. Thankfully in the end we didn't need them as SA approved us
