I haven't seen mention of a Cap of 5000 myself, though it is a sizable number and if you get in early with an application it should not be so much of an issue.
I've not looked at their sponsorship application form either and usually for any financials expected, they'd want to see that you've made an effort to consider what your living costs would be to initially cover yourself and something like A$20,000 might seem a reasonable ball park figure.
For work experience evidence, it is usual to have a letter of employment which has some detail and is on company letterhead and they may have some explanatory information with the application form.
I expect that like Immi, they will want anything not in english translated and a copy submitted verified by appropriate people, be that a lawyer or public official.

Hey there Coredig!

SA sponsorships for Fitters are 'Available' as per the SA planning level. The new SMP was announced on 5th Jan, 2011. The link to the new State Sponsored Migration List for 2011 is: State Sponsored Migration List 2011 :: Make The Move

Any other state sponser's for fitter trade? I checked ACT is sponsoring only for the candidates working there..I need to get this state sponsorship before immi changes the rule in July 2011.

Apart from ACT, Northern Territory http://www.migration.nt.gov.au/documents/SMP_Shortage_List_FA.pdf, Tasmania http://www.development.tas.gov.au/_...0538/Tas_SMP_Occupations_List_FY2010_2011.pdf and Western Australia The Department of Training and Workforce Development - Skilled Migration Western Australia - Occupations in demand are also offering SS for 323211 Fitter (General).
For Tasmania you 'must obtain job offer or strong interest from a local employer" to be eligible for the 176 visa while for the 475 visa you'll need an "overall IELTS band 6 and at least two years of relevant experience". Additionally, SS is "Not Available" for Fitters perhaps because the planned level must have been reached, but the occupation is on their list.

Adding to Wanderer's reply, the criteria for SA nomination can be found at: State sponsorship requirements: South Australia. The minimum funds for a single applicant must be at least A$25,000 and A$5,000 for every additional person in the application. Wanderer's A$20,000 suggestion wasn't far off from SA's bare minimum for the primary applicant but I'm quite sure that financial capability is an important aspect that governs the outcome of state nominations. Personally, I think its better to have at least A$30,000 to be safe for any state because indications of minimum financial capability are not advised by all territories and it could play heavily on the outcome as well if you're not well informed.

Better start acting soon or else time will just fly by and you won't believe that its July already :)

Hello All,

My application and supporting documents were received a week before the new planning level was reached for petroleum engineer on 21st February. And the online status check displays that my application is being assessed.

The statements regarding the planning level confuse me and I thought that someone out there maybe able to clarify it a little.

Although the planning level was reached right after my application was submitted and still being assessed, does that mean that my application will no longer be processed? Does SA only mean to say that they will no longer take NEW applications for petroleum engineer occupation at this point?

I will appreciate any information you could get me to help clarify my confusion.

I think you'll be fine if you meet other requirements by Migration SA.

Cheers.

would seem to indicate that your application in time means that assessment will continue.
If in doubt, email them.

Dear Wanderer,

Thanks. And here is what SA's general reply: "If you have lodged a sponsorship application before the occupation is taken off the list, the application will proceed provided that occupation has not reached its planning level at the time the decision on your application is made." After reading that statement, I thought I was good.

The email also reads "When these planning levels are achieved, they will no longer be available for sponsorship and any applications in the pipeline will not proceed. " Does this mean my application is in the "pipe line"?

Cheers.

Rehan,

Mine took 8 weeks to get the results. And my nominated occupation reached the planning level for the year of 2011 in the 7th week. Tough luck ah? Then again that was back in 2011.
