Hi All,

I am planning to apply to Australia as skilled worked under class 176.

My wife has family members in Australia as well. Was wondering if i should go for state sponsorship or relative sponsoring in my case? and which one would be quicker to come through?

Also i would be applying under 'ICT System Test Engineer' which is available in 'South Australia' and 'ACT. But the relatives are in NSW. So in this case keeping my job opted a relative would not be able to sponsor as they are living in a state where my occupation is not in demand?

Help much appreciated !!

State sponsor falls under priority 3. CO will be assigned in max 3-4 weeks.
Relative sponsor falls under priority 4. Same as 175 visa. CO will be assigned in 6-8 months

Yep, State sponsored is a lot quicker. Have a look at the timeline links in the "Please read: helpful websites......"sticky at the top of the forum page.

As others have mentioned above, State Sponsorship is the fastest way of obtaining a PR. However, the skill code 'ICT System Test Engineer' you have mentioned above is not on the SOL 1 list which means you cannot apply for a Family Sponsored Visa. Skills listed on SOL 2 can only be state sponsored.

Good luck!! :)
