Hi Dave As far as I know sponsorship visa's weather employer sponsored or state get priority at the moment. alot of other visa eg independent could be looking at 2013 before having there visa'a processed. Also the middle of the year they may be changing the skill list (SOL) I don't know if this will effect you. All I can say is if you have not got your skills assessed yet I would get it done asap and your state sponsorship application in. Michele

Hi, Currently employer sponsored visas have a higher priority than those that have a state sponsorship. Up until recently those that had a state sponsorship that had a nominated occupation on the csl received priority over those that just had a state sponsorship. Following the recent changes I'm not sure whether this still applies as I don't know whether the csl is still in operation, I'm sure someone will advise accordingly.
