Hi everyone i have some inquiries on SC 176 application and the eligibility of the PR after the application

I studied in SA for 2 years and completed my masters in Accounting.. end of 2010 but failed to get ma IELTS on time to apply for 885 PR application and 485 TR. thus i had to come back to my country

As for my agent, the best option is to apply for SC 176- hence i have to get ma IELTS in 7 before end of April so they have time to apply for this application before june 30th end of the financial year.

my questions are:provided that i get 7 in IELTS
1. is it easy to get the state sponsorship in South Australia since i studied there
2. how long will it take to process and be granted the visa if i apply by the due time and date
3. what are the restrictions that i will have if i get the state sponsorship....for eg work- do i have to work in the same field as the sponsored occupation, will i be under restrictions that i cannot go out of the country,will ii have to work 35hrs for week no matter what and provide the evidence for 2 years?
4. WHEN and how will i get my PR through this process?

5. And if i dont get IELTS on time what are my options?

Thanks

For sponsorship check the state list under the 176 eligibility but studying in SA will be of no advantage to you so you could look at other states.
The state sponsorship application info may give an idea of processing time for that and then the visa itself could be somewhere about 6-12 months and perhaps longer depending on what country you come from and whether an external security check is required.
A state sponsorship means you should reside in the sponsoring state for two years but you are not restricted to your occupation and enployment is whatever you find, travel away being OK but the state is supposed to be the location of your prime residence for those two years.
It is best that you do not apply until you have your IELTS for without it your application could eventually be rejected and your option would be to consider a new application.

hi thanks for your advice... unfortunately i could not get the required 7 in all bands even though my average score was 7.5. however i did another exams on the 16th of april and the results will come by 29th, the sad part of this is that i heard the deadline for state sponsorship is closing by the 2nd of may and my agent said that there is less time to apply for statesponsorship and suggested to apply for SC 175. but i really do not want to apply for this visa as it takes a long time to process and i have no idea when i will be granted of PR.
