    Hi Guys, Just wondering how many of us are desperately waiting for the announcement of the SMP for SA? And what jobs are you in? I am an Electrician, so many people are getting case officers for the other states that have released theirs. COME ON DIAC SIGN SAs OFF and put us out of our misery!!

    Hi. Well we have just received State Sponsorship approval but are still eagerly awaiting the release of the SMP. 176 submitted today by our Agent. OH is a Carpenter and Joiner. If all goes to plan with the SMP we have been told by our Agent that we are looking at a timescale of around 12 months. Fingers crossed!

    Hi to all,

     

    We (clan mac) are waiting for the release of the SMP too. OH is a carpenter, we are waiting to hear if we've got state sponsorship but as we only applied 18/10/10 and they didn't get all of our documents until 4/11/10, I doubt we'll hear anything this side of the year.

     

    Good luck to all waiting, :wubclub:

    We are also waiting! OH is HGV mechanic, SS was approved on 26/10/10 and 176 visa was lodged on 14/11/10 so now desperately hoping we are on smp. Friends of ours also in same position and he is a carpenter. Hoping that see SMP before Xmas, now wouldn't that be a good prezzie??? Unless we weren't on it! But trying not to have negative thoughts!!

    SA Migration e mailed me this morning confirming it will be December, let's just hope DIACs workload isn't too heavy so we all get case officers quickly. Was hoping WAs would be out soon so they can start processing them because if they are both released at the same time can see big backlogs again!

    Hi Just a question please...

     

    There seems to be a few posts that say they have been granted state sponsorship and are now awaiting the release of the smp for sa. How do you get state sponsorship if skills not on current SOL ??

     

    Or are we just getting confused ??

     

    thanks Kerry & Neil

    Hi All those that are waiting.

     

    Every time I see these posts I feel for you all.

     

    I really hope the wait will be short now and that Father Christmas will bring you all an early Christmas present. :jiggy:

     

    Good luck to you all, it will be worth it in the end.

     

    Love Kimx

    Is there a doctor in the house? I think that I have developed SMP fever! Symptoms include (but are not restricted to):-

    1. Checking ex pat forums such as PIA & PIO with such fervency that smoke is observed to fly from both the keyboard & fingers!

    2. Twitching, particularly facial muscles.

    3. Tutting, muttering and sulking (including the odd temper tantrum).

    4. Repeating the repetitive chorus "right that's it, I really mean it this time, I'm definitely not staying up till one in the morning to check again. No not me I definitely will not be doing any of that checking."

    5. Waiting until everyone is in bed and then booting up the laptop quietly to just have one last peek.

     

    So this is my last post I will not check PIO before shutting down the laptop so see if the SMP has been released. I will be patient and commence checking ritual again tomorrow evening.

     

    Goodnight all maybe tomorrow eh?

    Hello Everyone,

    I felt I had to share this reply from SA, I received it this morning: not the best news to start 2011,

    Dear Sharon

    In response to your e-mail, the State Migration Plan (SMP), State Sponsored Migration List (SSML) and sponsorship requirements is due to be released in the near future, but no confirmed date has been finalized. Immigration SA cannot advise on what occupations or criteria will be available until the SMP is released.

    When the SMP is implemented if your occupation is on the list your application will receive priority processing as directed by DIAC. Please visit the DIAC website regarding priority processing.

    Please monitor the Immigration SA website for the implementation of the SMP (date not yet confirmed).

     

     

    Happy New Year to you all,:goofy:

     

     

    Sharon
