WA Sponsorship
 
Hi all

Sorry if this has been asked before. I was looking at sponsorship in WA for my OH who is a Fitter, i was wondering if anyone else has gone through the process could give me any advice.

Cheers :fingerscrossed:

Hi, we are in the same boat and had WA sponsorship granted early this year, but it seems we will probably still have to wait until 2012 to be processed. :(

Hi, We are in the same position as Sunshine, 2012 it is once your SS is granted unless your occupation is on the CSL.

Not hearing any news about WA SS status, which months are they currently processing. Any recent succesful applicants please update, current processing time is 4 months right did they extend it further?

I think you may be correct about the WA SS processing time being around 4 months, however if you don't have an occupation on the CSL it seems you will still be waiting until 2012 to actually get your visa, regardless of when you are granted state sponsorship.

Yes, 4 months. We applied on 5th June and received an email on 5th October. We also received the SS by post, which arrived yesterday, dated 5th October.

Thanks guys, i think its still worth my OH applying for the WA Sponsorship, you never know what changes are afoot in the future, its changed so many times since we first applied, demoralising stuff, but my analogy is, it's like snakes and ladders, as long as you still have a through of the dice, yay and we all do. :p

We applied for WA SS on 8th july, however due to the new "2012" nonsense we will prob just wait to go to NSW as pointless going WA now when we can go on a 175 rather then be tied into a 176.

We applied for WA SS on 21st July and nothing yet. I am on CSL.

I'm waiting for WA State Sponsorship, applied 3rd July. Should hopefully be anytime soon...and lucky enough to be on the CSL. Cross fingers...

Waiting for WA State Sponsorship(applied on 3rd August 2009) to apply for 176 SS Visa, currently on CSL

Re: WA Sponsorship
 
Evee, you can apply 175 first, then change back to 176

Seems like there is huge amount of applications going in to WA as most of the occupations demand exist, they have even put a application processing fee recently very smart move by the WA government.
