yeh...........................WE got the visa grant letter today. Its really surprising because we were alloted CO only on 17 Aug 09.
This shows that hard work with determined perseverance will always pay in the long run. Thanks to the Almighty and then to the CO and all others who have contributed their bit. esp the expat forum website which is always having inspiring notes and positive suggestions.

hi anji

hi anji, how are u , i have a different story out here, and now i don't know how long it will take for us to get the visa. initially when we went to the agent they told us that we will fall under CSL list and then we applied for visa subclass 175 under csl category , we submitted our form for visa subclass 175 on the 13th april 2009 and we waiting for the process to move ahead, and then on the online status we had a update saying application further processed, after few days i told my agent can u check how far is the process gone and then they send a mail to them to enquire, after 2 days we they got a mail from DIAC saying that ur client (that's me) are not falling under CSL category , so then i was very upset and gave left and right to the agent for putting us under a wrong impression all these months, so they said we are sorry cause when we discussed initially with the our agent she had a mistake and few months she has the office for good to australia, they apologized to us and then i asked him what option do we have now, they said u can wait till january for the process to start or else u can apply for state sponsorship for victoria cause ur occupation is in demand, so now today that is 09/09/09 we have applied for state sponsorship for victoria , i don;t know long will this take, is the right option i choose or should i wait for the process to start in january 2010 under visa subclass 175. please advice us on this matter.

Accountant (External Auditor 2212-11 as per Assessment Result ) - subclass 175 on 13/05/2009
application processed further on 28/08/09. and then DIAC confirming that it is not under CSL Category. Applied for state spnsorship for Victoria on 09/09/09.

how long will the process take, looking at the current scenario . whether to wait and go subclass 175 or shld go ahead with subclass 176. it shld not make a difference in benefits and PR, only thing is 2 yrs in the state we will have to stay, right?.

what u suggest ?????????????????????????

Hi mack,

it is better to go for state sponsorship........but Victoria, it may take 3 months time to notify the result. I applied on July 15 for Vic SS, but still I haven't got any update from them...

All the best.

Hi Jayanth

Congrats to you and family as you have succeded in your Aussie Dream!

May I know which catagory of engineering you are in? Because, as you might expect, :)I have recently started the processes and I am a structural engineer. Much appreciate if you could share your experience.

Thanks
