I come from a different angle to most of you, as I am Australian and my Husband is English. We currently live in the Isle of Man and will be returning/emigrating in February with our Son and another on the way. We already have a house, and all my family and friends are there so I guess the visa is the only thing concerning us at the moment. We will be applying in Oz for the Visa as we will need to be there when it is approved.
I have started to look at all the Visa info, and reading on here from all your experiences, I have a few questions if you can help....
1. What is 'front loading' an application?
2. Is it possible to start working once your application has been submitted? My Husband will be going out there to start up the Aussie HQ of a UK company and will need to start working ASAP.
3. We will have been married almost 6 years by the time we apply, will my Husband automatically get a 'premanent' visa as opposed to the usual 'temp visa'?
4. If we did apply in the UK, how long do they give you until you have to turn up in Australia after it is granted?
I am sure I have heaps of other questions, but that's it for now. If anyone has any Sydney specific questions they need answered, feel free to contact me!!!
