New Application from scratch

Hello,

I am planning to apply for an australian immigration. Heard about the SOL changes that will come into effect in mid 2010. As for the first step i have to apply for the assessment by ACS authority and then lodge the application.

My probelm is that should i apply for the assessment or wait untill the changes because the assessment itself takes about 3months and if the changes makes me not eligible for migration then i will have a problem or it may cause me to do my assessment again.

Please help!

With the changes announced already, it may be more difficult for some people to get sufficient points via the totally independent route and it is already announced that Employer Sponsorship and State Migration Plans will have top priority.
Current economic scene and immigration numbers capping will mean that other in those categories there'll be fewer places available for independent immigration.
IT has been a popular occupation in recent times and I've often wondered myself where all these people are to be finding work, given that a lot of IT work goes offshore and that trend could increase so it is not surprising to see posts on forums such as ours [ and others ] re people having difficulty finding work in their field.

You could well use your time awaiting release of the SMPs and new SOL to see if you can find out a bit on what just work opportunities may be like.
