Does anyone know anything that we dont? The 175/176 skilled independent visa applications dont seem to be progressing at all. The ASPC would still appear to be processing Dec 07 and this hasnt moved for weeks. I keep sending the automated Email that is returned with the current state of play on from the ASPC but there is just no progress at the mo with our Visa type. It really is so downheartening and with all the news of this supposed worldwide recession we are freefalling into it just makes the reality of ever getting to Australia seem impossible. Feeling really down about it all at the mo.
