    Recommended Posts

    Guest pixie7

    Hi All,

     

    Sorry but I'm going to be posting alot in the next few months! Sooo impatient and doing it without agent so slightly terrified and very obsessed! :arghh:

     

    I'm impatiently waiting for my skills assessment at the moment, then looking to do SS as Primary Teacher and 176.

     

    I've got IELTS booked for next month and i'm now just gathering docs etc for state sponsorship form, am i correct thinking we will need-

     

    Copies of Passports for us both

    Reference from my employer

    Skills assessment copy/number

     

    Questions on form such as -

    Why SA?

     

    Any other info/questions/docs needed??

    Hoping to get positive skills assessment and lodge SS immediately so trying to get everything ready now.

     

    How long is form?

    Has anyone started form and just saved it for 28 days online?

     

    Thanks

    Hi to both of you.

     

    I have been a reader of PIA for quite some time now and seeing people at the same stage as us has prompted me to finally join.

     

    We are also waiting for TRA results, hopefully it won't be too long now. Fingers crossed for us all :)

    Hi,

     

    We have submitted our SA SS and we are now waiting for the results, I should imagine we still have quite a few weeks to go yet. We are in the process of gathering our documents required for the Visa itself.

     

    Heres what we sent:

     

    Application Cover Sheet signed and witnessed

    Passport Page with photo and personal details for us both

    Copy of positive Skills Assessment

    Copies of your qualifications e.g Certificates

    Reference from current employer (Optional)

     

    We found the "Commitment to South Australia" section the longest to write, you have to do your research, the actual Make the Move website gives you a lot of information.

     

    You can start the form but as along as you don't submit it, it will be ok and you can go back to it with your reference number.

    Once its submitted, you then have 28 days for the Department to receive your documents.

     

    Quote me if i am wrong people!! I know things change from time to time!!

    Pixie7,

     

    We have lodged our SS Application. After completing the online application, you have 30 days from date of submission to let Immigration SA have the hard copy. Until they have not received the hard copy, they will not start processing.

    Herewith some advice on the docs required:

    Supporting documents

    1. Application Cover Sheet must be signed by and witnessed. (Any friend or Solicitor will do, not a relative though)

    2. Copy of Positive Skills Assessment

    3. Copies of any qualifications/fellowships/memberships detailing highest qualification achieved and date of completion

    4. Copy of IELTS (less than 2 years old)

    5. Copy of the applicant's Passport pages with name,date of birth and country of citizenship (main applicant who has the nominated occupation on the SMP)

    6. Evidence of any Licensing or Registration requirements for your nominated occupation

    7. Letter from current or previous employer

     

    Part of the application requires you to:

    i)Outline your duties, tasks and responsibilities (max 200 words)

    ii)Outline the reasons for choosing SA as a migration destination in your own words (max 200 words)

    iii)Identify organisations or companies in SA that are relevant to your nominated occupation

    iv)Financial declaration: This must include at least AUD$25 000 for a single applicant and an additional AUD$5 000 for each member / dependant migrationg with you. This must include at least AUD$20 000 in cash/liquid funds

     

    Quite a mouthful! Hope this shed some light...

     

    Regards

    Karen

    Thanks for this, just registered to ask the very same question. I'm just waiting for IELTS results and then will submit. Can I just confirm that docs required are:

    *passport

    *Skills Assess

    *IELTS (need 7 or above for occupation)

    *Degree certificate

    *Cover sheet witnessed by a friend (Health Professional)

     

    anything else?

     

    Quite nervous about the Commitment to South Australia part. Obviously we are committed, just don't want to get this wrong!

    I emailed my VA today about IELTS as I have seen that a lot of people have taken it on here and was wondering why they haven't mentioned it to me! But apparently I don't need it so it Is one less thing to worry about. Good luck with your SS x
