Default Should we now go for State Sponsored Business Visa?

We are in the very early stages of sorting our visa. We had hoped to go with the 175 or 176. I rang the embassy today to find out about processing application times and I was told about the suspension! We want to go to Perth as I have family there.
I am a nurse and my husband is a building contractor. I have all the relevent criteria needed for the 175, and my husband has been in business owning his own Limited Company for well over 10 years.

Should we go ahead......ie; will I go ahead and do my IELTS for nursing etc. (which I need anyway), get our references etc etc etc and plough ahead with requirements for skilled migration visa? Will Visa 175 and 176 definately return??? Or should we look at other options such as my husband applying for State Sponsored Business Visa (or something like this)


I know we do have options but I had hoped that I would not have to rely on a work sponsorship visa as I have a young baby and had hoped to do nursing around my husband's working hours for the first few months, until we get settled and find childcare which we are 100% happy with!

Any Ideas?

Overall probably best to wait till July. The business visa isn't PR from day one like the GSM visa either.

Also Business skills visas are also on hold as cap has been reached for this year so no new ones can be granted till August at the earliest. This will include people who applied in august 2009 and have still not heard anything yet so a biggish backlog still to be processed.

I applied 163 in Sept. 09 and do not expect to hear anything till the summer.............................

It would appear that Oz is full up

Get on with your skill assessment at least. Also take IELTS if you are prepared to have to re-do it later on.

Then see how the visa options work out in the next few months. You may have to look at the employer option although if you go for ENS (subclass 121) it's a permanent visa so you have flexibility.
