Bloody hell will things ever be straight forward for the Churches???
Got an email from SA Immi this morning to tell us that our form 1100 (sponsorship confirmation) has been declined by DIAC!!!!
We have differing occupations on the applications, this being due to the fact that the one we put on the SS app was not on the drop down list on the 176 app!!! So I rang SA immi and they said that they don't normally inform people of this, but she had been following our case and decided to let us know...... anyway she couldn't change it from her side that was down to me.
An hour and a halfs discussion with DIAC later following routes like you made a critical error, you will have to relodge and repay, along with me refusing to part with any more cash and telling him to try harder to find a solution, they finally came up with an agreement that in fact we couldn't match the occupations because they didn't add the occupation onto the list
They have agreed to put it right, although we now have to resend all our skills assessment docs and various other forms from immi website, then send all correspondence from DIAC back to SAimmi in order for them to resend the original form 1100!!!! This has to all be done before 5pm friday!!!
On a much brighter note though, the fella at DIAC informed me that our application was priority plus (whatever that is) and is being processed immediately so, as soon as we get over this hurdle, hopefully there'll be no more and it'll be a short hop to finally gaining PR!!!!!
