State Sponsorship declined

    Recommended Posts

    Guest gabriel

    Hi me Lovelies!!

     

    We have just had our State Sponsorship declined :sad:

    one of the reasons was on our cash requirement - we have quite a bit of money tied up in the house but no savings - we have been told we should have "liquid assets" & to get a letter from Bank to see how much they would be willing to lend us. Just wondering if anyone knew how much cash you have to show you have for SA. ??

     

    The other reason was we didnt show enough analysis on job prospects (my OH is applying as an Electrician Special class) but he is a Senior Project Engineer by trade was just easier going in as Electrician Special class. I thought our online application was good!How wrong was I!!:skeptical:

     

    Oh the joys !!!

    Cheers me darlins if you have any answers!!:nah:

    Hi we got state sponsorship in aug 08 and I know that it did say on the application how much had to be in liquid assets. I know at that time we had to show we had about 5500 or 6000 pounds in the bank but the exchange rate was different then so you probably need more now, but I do remember it did say how much you needed for all the people in your family to live on for six months without a job, or something like that. With regards to the job research. My OH is a chartered surveyor/valuer, we put in our application some jobs we had found also showed the organisation he had to join over here and expanded on all the different types of job he could do with his qualification.

     

    I hope this helps and wish you all good luck in the future

    All is not lost-DON'T PANIC

    Re - job prospects - we e-mailed 100s of companies in adelaide - sending cvs etc. Out of the 100s we sent we got about 8 replies -so we enclosed them in our application. Apparently they always look for this.

    I'm not sure re the money -it depends how big your family is ..I think for a family of 4 it was 25 grand sterling..but I may be wrong. We got our house valued and a statement from the mortgage lender, which was enough for sa.

    Hope this helps

    Sorry cant give you any idea about the money side of things but as for job research that is pretty easy to get around. Your research needs to show you have checked out the job market in the state and their are jobs for your husband. So you would lead in with some sort of a statement saying that your husbands skills are broad and suitable for a number of different positions then find jobs adverts for jobs that your husband could do ranging from really simple to really complex - so you can show that there are many positions he could do (the more the better). Then contact various agencies in his field - explain that you are looking to move to Adelaide and would they recruit for his type of work - they will probably say well call us when you get here but then no problem as least you have their names and some sort of correspondence. Remember though for State Sponsorship it is the whole of South Australia so if the jobs are somewhere else in South Australia not Adelaide even better cause it shows how widely spread the demand for your husband's work is. You could also contact companies in his field and see if they would have employment prospects for him. He may land up with a job sponsorship. Try get input from a number of different fields so industry, mining, state government, local government, etc. also research salaries for his field, not sure if there is anything specialised associated with his job e.g. he would need to get additional certificates or anything before he could be employed but if there is anything like that chuck it in. You basically want to show them you have researched absolutely anything possible about the job market.

    Hi its me again

     

    I just looked at the state sponsorship make the move site for financial capacity for a 475 or 176 visa and it says that you need cash and assets of

     

    $25,000 dollars for a single person, plus a further $5000 for each other family member

    $10,000 of these assets must be cash or savings.

     

    Check it out on the make the move website under requirements for state sponsorship

    then financial capacity

     

    hope this helps

    we were declined for our state sponsorship the first time round. The reason been they wanted us to have 5 grand in savings. Fortunately for us one of our relatives lent us it then we paid her back when the house was sold

    Don't give up we have been here 7 months now. Good luck

    Hi

     

    Sorry to hear that your application was declined. Like the other posts say, don't give up and try again. How long did it take for you to hear the outcome? I am hoping that we hear soon because if we are not successful I want to be able to get another application in before 14th May as per the notice on the SA website.

    I had a look on their FAQ's and all it says is that if you are unsucessful you can re-apply. There doesn't seem to be any mention of any time limits.
