176 sponsored visa

I have already read quite a lot of posts in this forum about visas and time lines, but I'd just like to put this question out there for my specific case.

I would like to apply for a 176 state sponsored (victoria) visa. The maximum waiting time so far is 12 months. My question is, what sort of things would make the application be granted in less time? I know of course no one can answer this 100 per cent accurately, but maybe people out there who have already applied have some tips:
Here is a bit more detail about my situation
My de facto partner is the primary applicant - Job - General Electrician
He is Swiss

I am the secondary applicant and I am Maltese
We have no problems proving our defacto relationship as we've been living together for over a year.

Any help appreciated,

Denise

Aside from your partner getting his electrician's qualifications assessed if he has not already done that and getting the state sponsorship which you may need to allow three months for, it comes down to ensuring the visa application put in is clear, accurate and complete aside from medical and police clearances though if you have some for previous countries you have been in within the last ten years or since age of 16 such as for you Malta if applicable and you do not intend returning there until at least after visa is applied for, you could get those done.

It then really comes down to the luck of perhaps there are not too many Priority #1 visas ahead in the queue and not too many other Priority #2 there as well.
The new state sponsorship SMPs have not been in operation for so long, so there'll not be too much feedback on them.

btw, your partner on having a visa will need to do an Australian Wiring Regulations course on arrival in Australia and then find a position to work under supervision for about 12 months before being fully registered.
It would seem that there'll be a substantial demand for trades people in Queensland in coming years as a result of flooding and rebuilding up there if by chance you want to consider sponsorship for Quensland rather than Victoria, as may be easier to find employment.

Thanks for that. My partner has already had his occupation assessed, and we're waiting for the result of the state sponsorship application. If we get a yes for that, we will go ahead and apply for the visa.

I have found proof which says that if my partner gets a good score for his Australian wiring regulation course, he does not need to be under supervision for 12 months, and can become an A grade electrician immediately. This info, if I remember correctly, I found on the test website itself. I also posted the link somewhere on this website when a poster was asking about being an electrician in Victoria

Thanks for the help!
