As far as I am aware you can apply as many times as you like but each application will be compared to any previous application.

Bridie or kenjan are applying a second time so they would know better.

Yes, you can apply as many times as you like but they do indeed check against your previous application so you couldnt, for instance, exaggerate anything on your second application!!

Our second one is with our agent for final checks and hope to be in over the next week or so.

Apparently the second one is harder due to the fact that they have the original one but hopefully it will be OK.!!!

Yes Cooperman you can apply again. I recieved my TRA assessment then applied to emmigrate then fell foul to the deadly deeming date problem (the date they deem you to be qualified as a tradesman) about 3 years ago. I reaplied with fresh evidence and proof that I'd balls'ed up the first and got a new one which was satisfactory.

Been here 17 months now.

That's good to hear, we were thinking doom and gloom when we first failed!
