I would like to share with you to get your commenst and suggestions that I have applied for my visa under Accountant ASO-2211 profession category in Nov-2008 which is also in the critical list, at that time my IELTS score was over all 7 band but in listening I got 6.5, and rest all was 7 in three modules, later on DIA raised the requirements of Minimum 7 in each band for this category to get preference, so far after a year I got no call from them and their website says since May-09 that your processing is to start yet, I have now improved my score for each band and have got overall 7.5 and my minimum score in each band is 7 so I am about to send them my revised IELTS score but I am afraid they will take another year for this or more to process the case? should I arrange for the sponsor company? as the DIA still silent about the timeline....really worried about the wastage of time,
anyone who can guide me..thanks for your time

my suggestion would be to send them revised IELTS immediately and also use your new IELTS to apply for state sponsorship. I haven't checked and confirmed but believe ACT and VIC sponsorships are the quickest (you can check it yourself through links on DIAC site). Maybe, whilst you are awaiting your sponsorship DIAC will do something about your application as you should now qualify for a CSL priority. Without CSL you would still have about 2 yrs wait anyway. If nothing happens between now and the state sponsorship then send them SS. Then your priority will be much better. If you read some threads on this forum you would see that some people got their visas couple of months after lodging SS.
Good luck

ACT stands for Australian Capital Territory, a little state like area including Canberra (too small to call it a State). If you get a state sponsorship and are approved on that you will have to live there for two years. VIC stands for Victoria.

Yes, WA (Western Australia where Perth is) sponsors accountants but I've heard they take about 4mths or longer to process your application. Victoria (where Melbourne is) also sponsors accountants but with managerial experience. Here is a link to Vic list of occupations:
http://www.liveinvictoria.vic.gov.a.../Skilled-Sponsored-176-Eligibility_July09.pdf
I'm not sure whether NSW (where Sydney is) sponsors accountants. Why don't you look through their website. You can get there from immi.gov.au site through links to state sponsorship.
Good luck

Dear Dorota,

Acting on your guideline and advise I have updated DIA about my latest IELTS result and I have also searched a lot the websites of ACT and VIC immigration and finally I chose VIC to apply for the sponsorship, I just finished my application online, :D, now one problem I was thinking of that at the time of sending the application of your relevant profession which is Accountant in my case you must have work experience of at least 12 months during the last 24 months period from the date of application and since last two years I am working as Oracle ERP Project manager in Financials and supply chain modules which is although the accounting functional side of my job but more related to Computers any how when I applied to DIA in Nov-08 at that time I was well meeting this condition as I have been working as manager accounts for 5 years but still I was working in Oracle Financials and Oracle modules what do you advise now?

There isn't much more I can help. You still qualify for some priority under the CSL. Worst case scenario you don't get the sponsorship, so your situation will not improve but it will not make it any worse. You've done what you could, so now wait. If you get SS send it to DIAC. You might even get your PR visa prior to SS, you never know. Keep us informed.
Good luck

Dear Dorota,

You have been really helpful to me like a brother really its grt help to give u some one true advice ya in worst case scenario it would happen but I am still looking forward as it cost me nothing to apply for the sponsorship of VIC it was free of cost..meanwhile I have also started inquiring for ACT availability of quota under accountant category as on their website it was not written that I should have during last 12 months out of 24 months the relevant experience if you could find some time also to check this out from their website as apparently I found it not there....so you have given me the candle light and now I am walking to find my way May GOD bless u ever and especially in the coming year a very happy new year from me to you and your loved ones,

one last thing, as I was new to this site a person has tried to play a fraud with me which I would like to share with you as you can make this aware to all visiting this website...if you give me your e mail I want to forward these mails from that nasty man just read them and see how clever these people are...

Regards,
Mohsin

Dear Dorota,

Just sharing for our more knowledge I feel I still qualify for it, despite last 12 months working condition, I have applied Skilled-sponsored Visa Subclass 176 which gives you permanent status after 2 years living in the sponsored state now look at my apparent score as per DIA Official site , I require 100 pass points
Age-20, IELTS 25, Nominated Occupation 60, MODL point 15, here they award no point for recent work experience at DIA site and 10 points are further awarded if I get state sponsor I think I am safely getting here pass marks,

and I hope VIC will also follow the same criterian as mentioned on the deptt website, what do you feel and suggest..

Regards,
Mohsin[/QUOTE]

Hi Mohsinsa

Expect a wait of around 5 months minimum if you are thinking about applying for SS for Western Australia.

Thats a long wait but remember its very important to choose your state carefully as you will be stuck there for 2 years if you cant find relevant work, furthermore you would be wanting to settle down and not have to move (again!).

In my opinion your experience in Oracle and IT should be welcome in any state that needs accountants, so I wouldnt get too focussed on this, but rather explore where they need Accountants in general (check what skills they sponsor and that should guide you in the right direction).

Good luck

Thanks Dear,

Ya I have keeping in view my current experience as Oracle Functional resource and ex experience as Accountant selected Melbourne and two days back I have applied for their sponsor and their website claim it 8 to 10 weeks now I dont know how much actually they will spend...meanwhile I have also updated DIA about my latest IELTS score.. any idea hw much time VIC takes to process approx.

Not sure about the VIC sponsorship processing times, its always best to get this inf direct form another forum member who is actually in the process of applying for VIC sponsorship.

A word of caution though. Be very careful of the new change on 01 Jan 2010 where DIAC has become sticky about experience in related occupations. Not sure how far down the line you are with your app?

Oh... lets see at the time I applied with DIA I was well qualifying the condition of last 12 months experience in the immidiate last 24 months but now when I have applied for VIC although I was not in the relevant profession in the last 24 months but I read there I require 100 points as their website gives the reference of DIA website link for visa info under 176 and that DIA website I have gone through gives me more than 100 points at present say Age 20, IELTS 25, and Accountant 60, and MODL 15 and there it says recent experience carries no marks so please if you can check it in this way am I calculating correctly or still in danger zone?

Hi

Remember that State sponsorship and DIAC will assess you independantly frfom each other. You could get state sponsorship, but DIAC will require that you meet the basic requirements, which if I remember includes recent experience and relevant experience. If I read this correctly I understand it to mean that even though you meet the points for state sponsorship DIAC will assess you to see if you meet the basic requirements. Note that the State that sponsors you wont confirm your recent experience - that is left up to DIAC.
