just about to lodge the SS for a 176, but I have been awake since the silly hours mulling things over in my head. Would we be better going for a 175 and just getting the visa application straight in, seeing as the SS timelines seem to be taking so long.
I originally thought that the 176 would be quicker (want to get my daughter into school over there asap before she starts Y10), but after checking the DIAC this morning, it states that the 175 and the 176 each take 12 months. If we have to wait wait 8 weeks plus for the SS to come back wouldn't it just add more months of waiting time?
I had read somewhere that the 176 takes 6 months, is this still the case, or am I going mental?
So, which one really is quickest? How long is a piece of string?
Think I need to go back to bed
