I'm new to this site since yesterday but have already found so many answers to my questions so thank you!
We are in the middle of the process. My OH is a Software Tester and we've had our SS approved for SA. Waiting for the IELTS results tomorrow so that we can proceed with our 176 application. He found the IELTS quite hard even though he is a native English speaker, so we are prepared for him to have to re-sit it. We think we have all the docs ready to upload, but I'm sure we will find we have completely missed out on something!
I'm sure I'll need to call on the expertise and advice of the members on this site before long. At the moment we are quite anxious about the application process and REALLY want to get to the other side so we can plan our new life! We'll still be poor but at least it'll be in a warmer climate!
Hopefully some day I'll be in the position to help and advise on the whole process!
