Hi all, not been on here for a wee while. Our plans for SA SS went out the window when they closed the system down on 2nd May while we were still waiting for TRA so we had decided to try for WA SS as we won't have enough points come July. Well we got TRA back on 24th May but they had classed hubby as a cook and not chef because he hadn't had 3 years work experience after his AQF III! Agent was sorting out our appeal as they were convinced the assessor had assessed it wrong but we thought that was the end of our dream - the only state with cooks available on their SMP was NT with a 60 week wait. Then WA announced they were accepting cooks again from the 1st June :D Our SS went in on 1st/2nd there and we woke this morning to an email saying our SS had been approved so our 176 has been submitted and now all we can do is wait!
It's like someone has lifted a massive weight from my shoulders now and it feels great. Our dream of a new life in Adelaide is still alive even if it means we have to go via WA but we will get there in the end!
