Hi All,

Can anyone share the experience of applying Queensland SS for immigration?

Since there is no online application for this state, every document needs to be sent as hard copies only.

So would like to know the details on the required documents to be sent and the timeline taken for the approval of the same.

Many Thanks in advance for your help in sharing this information.

Queensland will actually email you asking for more documents. I was asked for: proof of enough finances, evidence of commitment to live and work in queensland (an essay saying why you want to live and work in queensland, why you think queensland suits you etc.), and a copy of my skills assessment result. My SS was given to me pretty quickly after that. After submission, a couple of days later Queensland emailed saying that they are willing to sponsor me. Best of luck :)

Well, the choice is up to you, but I just want to say that a chance like this may never come again. These two occupations: Other Engineering Professional - 2339 and Software and Applications Programmers - 2613 are currently not able to get SS from NSW.

What would normally be the timeline before one will receive ITA? Is it still a day?

EOI on 01May and received the acknowledgement on 02May asking for more documents and proof (settlement funds, essay on commitment to work and live in QLD etc) for a QLD SS. Was given until 16May2014 to compile and submit all the docs required but will be submitting in advance, hopefully within this week.

Congrats, QLD! Have you did your IELTS? If yes then perhaps it's time for EOI.

BSMQ = Business & Skilled Migration Queensland. They are the one who will contact you should they are interested in sponsoring your 190.

Yes. My IELTS was done in Nov 2013. General band 8.0.Thanks for the explanation. Is your application self lodged? May I know why you choose Queensland? For me, is bcos it is the only state sponsoring my application.

Hi qld, it is one of the states which sponsors my occupation and per my survey has most affordable costs of living among the rest. Have you submitted your EOI? I'm still waiting for my invitation.

Sounds like you're right on track. Emailed my officer yesterday and it seems tha my application is still in the queue to be processed, results to be known by next week. That's 3 weeks in total from the date of documents submission, 1 week more than the usual timeline of 2 weeks, as per their website. Was informed that they are experiencing high volume of applications, perhaps alot wanted to rush to lodge before July 1st.

Congrats wingzee,

Saw that you have ur Qld SS appoved and that you have lodged your visa application. So, the waiting period for Queensland approval is roughly 3weeks. Just submitted all documents to BSMQ today. Keeping my fingers crossed.
