Hi Forum Seniors,

I am thinking of applying for a Vic state sponsorship now and again apply for a WA state sponsorship after I get a positive skill assessment from EA(applied on 12th april, 2012).
Can anyone tell me whether I can apply to both states at the same time? Also if anyone has submitted WA state sponsorship, do they ask in their form whether u have applied for another state?
Need this info urgent as I will apply for Vic sponsorship on Monday!

Any state sponsorship application will have that question included. So ideally you will have to end up being honest which may jeopardize the application processing if they know that you have applied for another state in parallel. So think wise and apply / act accordingly.

Cheers!

Please advice me!!!!

We received state sponsorship from WA in dec end and moved in WA within three months to honor our commitment of staying in state for min two years.I left my job in Melbourne to move here.Since we got the residency , we applied n nos of job in WA in my husband's field which was an occupation on demand in this state.He did get only one interview and that was not successful.We were pretty depressed with the response so decided to carry on his present job and talked to his company.They were happy to let him work from Perth on the condition that he will travel to Melbourne whenever any client requirement will arise.
Since we moved in, we tried to get a job here , applied to hundred of job, contacted all possible agents etc.Even he applied in junior/short term contract everything possible to get a job here to fulfill our commitment. Its almost four months now and we did spend lots of move here in buying furniture, car relocation , childcare etc etc on the top of that, his flying costs to Melbourne.
Now his company started saying that is is not suiting them any more, and they can wait maximum another few months for him to get a job there. as he was in this company for a long time and with very good reputation.Now , we are scared to hell ..cant imagine what will we do after that ... it does not look like that he will get a job as the agents here telling him the same story that the field he is experienced in does not have much openings here!
Donno what should we do?leave his job, stay here to honor our commitment or go to state and beg for a release or go back to India?
But surely cant survive like this with a small child ...specially when the bank balance is going down everyday ...

Anyone faced this situation before??? please help us with any suggestions...
