I have just read that the PM of Australia is looking at adjusting the figures for immigrants into Oz? We just about to apply for state sponsorship after having house valued and other bits we needed.
Is it worth continuing???
I feel dis-heartened this morning
DON'T panic!!!! This has been mooted on several forums; all are worried........
Essentially there will be some restrictions and delays in issuing visas.
a skilled migrant, on the demand list, with essential qualifications/ experience, and can do a job that an oz citizen isn't available for will be sorted as befor, just a bit slower whilst the "credit crunch" is affecting the world!
I reckon those who don't have English as a first language may struggle a bit more........not racist, just practical.
Continue with your application, you have nothing to loose just yet.....................
Thanks for that
our agent in Oz has re-assured me this has not been announced officially and just to get our info to her asap.
So I have phoned estate agents and house going on the market at weekend - fingers crossed
