I did a search and it didn't really help me so apologies for probably asking the same thing everyone else does!
1. Can I get my police check done before I apply for my visa? I am going to get one done as I am going to be working with children on a self employed basis so I was wondering if I can kill two birds with one stone so to speak.
1a. How do I go about getting a police check done? b. Average cost? c. Time it takes?
2. When we apply do we send our passports in or just colour copies? Do these have to be 'official' seen by a solicitor copies? We are supposed to travel to Europe during the time our application will be processed in.
3. Am I right in thinking that now I CAN'T get the medicals done before we apply?
I am married to an Australian (been together 2yrs) who will be out there when I apply. I have a son from a previous relationship who we will also be applying for a visa for. Do I apply for 476 & hope that we get PR straight away as we meet criteria?
Our 15month old daughter is in the process of getting her own Australian passport. Does that mean she gets PR/citizenship automatically?
Thanks in advance!
