We'll be applying at the end of July (fingers crossed).

We've just sent off paperwork to the ACS (Australian Computer Society) and are hoping that will be back by end July beginning of August at the latest.

We have already applied to Vic for STNI. Did that 4 weeks ago and they take up to 8 weeks to get back to us so we should know soon.

Like you I feel it would be nice to be in contact with people at the same stage as us so lets keep in touch.

Hi!
We are hopijng to apply in July as well. Bonus is that the OH is an Aussie, so if you've got questions you think he might be able to help with, PM us or get a thread going.
I've lived over there for a year as well but am not an expert...find the forum very helpful and often uplifting in moments of doom and gloom. Lots of nice people to ask all those small silly questions!

Hi all. I'm hoping that I'm not going to join your group/spreadsheet, but only because I hope to get our application in within the next week... but you never know

I'm interested in that a couple of you have mentioned STNI and IT Manager in your posts. Is this something you have heard of happening (I've only heard of nurses etc getting this before). I am an IT Manager and we are currently planning to go on a 138 sponsored visa, but are always open to new suggestions.

Just as a bit of info, my ACS assessment took approx 13 weeks to get turned-around but I think this was longer than the norm.

All the best anyway...

Rich

Talking Re: anyone applying july 2007

Hi everyone,

We're hopefully be sending our application off at the end of July, we are applying for 136 MODL (OH is a Welder). Just waiting for TRA. Then if all goes well, we're be off to Adelaide.

Got a feeling July will be a busy month because of the changes in the Visa process.

Hope you get some good news soon Donna,should be any day now. Isn't your OH a Welder too?

Lucy x
