3 months since the application was lodged... no CO assigned as yet
Received a call from the agent yesterday & was informed that the rules have been changed & (visa class 475 skilled independent migrant) visa's are now on the 4th priority & will take longer than expected. The initial time line given was 6-8 months.
I was given the option to lodge a new application for state sponsorship, which is now 1st & 2nd priority. That too for Victoria as the process is faster. Our choice was WA but seems (as per the agent) it takes longer as well.
Is it the best thing to do? (go for state sponsorship)
Just play the waiting game & hope that no more changes are made to the laws?
If anybody out there has more knowledge in this process, would appreciate some advice on below,
