Just gonna have to sit tight and hope for the best.......
*hugs everyone in a moment of extreme emotion*
I am now really hoping that I don't have to wait till next year and the expression of interest part having just read this about it:
One serious time issue is that while The Model will be introduced in July 2012, invites will not commence until January 2013, leaving a gap of nearly six months where no applications will be taken. However, DIAC has confirmed that ultimately, The Model will significantly reduce the pipeline of visa applications and streamline processing times.
It's slipping away :(
yes, it looks like a bottomless pit doesn't it.
just been looking at NT forums on poms in oz - it looks a possibility but they require very detailed statements for financial capacity and a book-sized tome on why you want to live there (I don't!). Still, if its the only way in.....
Don't think I could handle NT, I know my dog certainly couldn't!
If this doesn't come off, might have a look at NZ - but don't want to have to. I need a stiff drink!
its a bit naughty, but I have seen and heard elsewhere that if a state sponsors you and you then get the 176, you have no legal obligation to go to that state (as the fed issue the visa). According to one migration agent i spoke to this is pretty commonplace.
Yeah, I think we already kinda decided NT wasn't for us as well. It's Adeliade or bust. We did consider New Zealand before we started, as I think it's a little easier to apply too....but we really want to move some where a bit warmer as we thrive on being outdoors, even if it's just fiddling around in the garden. Plus, we kinda know we already like the general vibe of Australia.
I am just gutted to see the list fill up so quick.....very frustrating. I am having a very unproductive day at work too, just can't focus on it.
Canberra grabbed our interest initially, but all ICT posts there are closed as well. We have been there (well, someone had too!) and liked it in a kinda odd way.

It is very scary at the moment and the processing times of the ACS does not help matters either. My nominated occupation (Systems Analyst) still shows as high availability but I am extremely concerned that it may not be available when my ACS results eventually comes through. It really looks bad at the moment. The fact that very few of the states have IT occupations opent does not help matters either. Anyways lets hope for the best and best of luck to everyone.
IELTS done L 8 R 7.5 W 8 S 8 | Positive assessment 10/12 | SA SS online 10/19 | SA DOCS RECVD 11/02 | SS Approved 11/18 | PCC & Medicals requested 12/05 | Visa Granted 02/01
Good grief, I get told I'm being made redundant at the end of December, on Friday, and now Sys Admin has gone low availability. I knew the redundancy was coming, it was just a case of when.
What a nightmare Chris - seems like this is not going to be an easy ride.
On a slightly, possibly positive note, my ACS status is now case finalised - still on stage 4, but I assume I'll know one way or the other within a day or two whether I've made it past stage 1.
