10 steps forward 8 steps back :(

    Well hubby has his IELTS and his Skills Assesment from Engineers Australia and just as our agent lodges our visa his job goes from low availibility to Special Circumtances :arghh: within a matter of days, so back we go, not totally to the beginning but back a little.

     

    Our agent has said we can wait till the new application rules in July and see if his job returns to list or go for a 175 (which she tells me currently has a 1 year turnaround) but my gut feeling is to go for a 175 rather than wait for the new application process, so think thats what we will do, will take a little longer but haho it will be worth it we will get there in the end.

     

    Just wanted to share so those who go on low availibilty can get things shifting and same doesnt happen to them.

     

    good luck everyone we will keep plodding on

    Go for the 175... It really will be quick and you just don't KNOW that you'll definitely be selected in July or whenever the first round is...you'll probably have your visa by just after that anyway.

    With the new rules, i have read they won't be looking at the new applicants until jan 2013, due to a backlog of old applicants.

     

    Apply for 175 - it may be quicker than other.

     

    Good luck x

    Thanks everyone.

    We are going down the 175 route, in the process of completing the form 80 (just taking a while to work out which countries weve been to in the last 10 years :))

    and 1276 so should all be moving by next week.

    Thanks again, its great to have somewhere you can air your problems and get responces from likeminded people.

    Em x

    Best of luck, it's such a hard, emotional process to go through & hopefully worth it all in the end x
