After being turned down once due to insufficient evidence - they knew everything except our shoe size - we sent a second application off, and after two and a half weeks, THE MAN FROM THE TRA - HE SAY YEEEEEEEEEES. Now its onward and upward - or should that be downward. We are going on a 136 skilled visa - hubby is a wall/floor tiler - and we are looking at possibly Ocean Reef/Hillarys area - although SOR is starting to grow on us as well. Will hopefully be doing a rekkie early next year so will know more then. I think we've got the worst bit over though. Agent told us he thinks its a money making thing, in that they turn you down once so they get another $300 out of you. I'm not bothered now though cos hes said yes, but for those people that get turned down first, don't be too disheartened, as I didnt really send them that much more information.
