It has been a long time since I come here last - the last time I was here was last year some time, and I was panicking big time over getting my first stage visa in and it being accepted in Perth.
Anyhow, I actually GOT the first stage visa! WOHOO!
But now I want to know what I need to have by the time that two years is up, so I can be really prepared this time!
I have practically the entire two years to get things together, so whatever is needed it is likely I will be able to get by that time. I keep seeing that it says that if after two years I "still meet the legal requirements" I will get the second stage visa - What are those legal requirements?
Is there anywhere I can go to see what I can do now I have my subclass 820 visa? Like medicare and so on? Is there an actual site that the Immigration Dept. have set up to tell people what they can do now that they have their first stage visa? For example, can I now work, and how do I go about it?
Also, on a side note: I didn't receive my confirmation letter from the Department, but they are now aware of that fact and my case worker is going to see if she can send me another one - was there a passport label or anything I needed to get at this stage?
Like I said I have almost the whole two years to get things together, any suggestions will be useful and appreciated
