Nice work, big bob, you are the one who started ACT sponsor thread in PIO, that was very helpful n I followed that regularly until I found my skill is no longer needed in ACT. Then I came here n kind of happy as SA seems much more promising.
It would be so nice if we really get PR n meet someday. I have not submitted 176 yet, need some time, hopefully can do that on coming weekend.
It appears you can't do the 1100 online anymore (have to email them :( ) , do we need a line in there for medicals and police checks? Might give people an idea of when CO are granted, when meds requested and so on?
Over your idea ...Yes we can add case officer meds etc....once we have people in list get to that point...thanks
Nice one big bob!!! Great! I'm a primary school teacher and smp application was 12th July! Fingers crossed for all of us!!
Just to say to folks that we ahev strted our 176 and paid the 1st installment. It appeared on the website thatw e had to complete the medicals and I found information on DIAC's website to support this, however I got an email on Monday confirming the application and providing further information. You do have to wait until you have a case officer to apply for your medicals and police checks. I also uploaded my TRN No (you get this as soon as you have paid) onto the immigration website and got an alomost instant response to say the Form 1100 had been sent to DIAC. You do only have 28 days however to upload all you documents. As we are not married we are required to provide quite a lot of additional information to prove the relationship and a signed (by Solicitor or Justice of the Peace) declaration. You also have to complete the forms 80EH & 1221 which requires quite a lot of historical data about all previous passports, trips to Australia and last 10 years worth of travel, addresses etc. You can have a look at these on DIAC's website http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms but suggest you have a look sooner rather than later to find out if you have all the required information to hand...it requires quite a lot of work, particulary if you have done lots of travelling. We are off on holiday soon so we don't really have 28 days to play with ! If anyone has any questions about the initial stage of the 176 I'm happy to try and answer them. Good luck to everyone, but I think this is definately the long bit...still hopeful that we get a decision before Dec! Check out this page on DIAC...suggest all visa applied for before 20 July 2011 have a case officer...assuming there is not too much of a back log at the moment which will hopefully mean we will be processed reasonably quickly.
Eclare thanks a lot for the information.. I have found it very useful especially now that I am preparing to lodge the 176. Cheers.
Hi Guys, this is the first time ive used a thread so its all very new !! Great to see such a nice bunch of people on the move to SA! We have lodged our application and our Docs were received on the 21st July. We are too waiting for SS .......!
