Well after lodging our main application in September 2009, the changes to processing had taken place just a few days later. What was going to take 6 or 8 months, was now going to be low priority so waiting until 2012 for our visa was the new rule. Well now yet again there is big changes, we now wait for April for more news. General skilled migration visas will be seeing major changes,and i think its a good thing that we have state sponsorship from South Australia, maybe that will help us along.
I will never forget how depressed and desperate i became after the September 2009 announcement, had to practically pull myself out of the rut that i was in. It was horrible, I just live by the fact that 'everything happens for a reason'. It is the story of my life anyway so why shouldn't it apply now.
