    187 Visa Processing Time

    Hi NT Childcare SEP As per my understanding, the two years contract submitted with Nomination papers, starts from the date of approval of PR (or the date of start of work after approval, if someone is offshore). By the way, I applied on 30.10.2017 from ACT Child Care Leader, however, no news as yet. Goodluck

    Moving to Australia from UK, help please :)

    Thank you, at the moment I work for Wincanton but there's opportunities in the company to gain different qualifications. I'd like to work as a painter/decorator and have my own business.

    Yeah, I get that. I was possibly thinking of an apprenticeship here in the UK first.

    Working Australian nights for a UK business

    @rammygirl He should set up an Australian ABN even if his only source of income is from the U.K.? We definitely need to speak to someone who deals in expat finances... it’s in my never ending list of things to do! I’m not sure how sustainable it is for us in the long term either, but his industry doesn’t really exist on the same scale in Sydney and it would be good to have a company to come back to when we get back to the U.K. (I would work in Australia as normal).
  8. I wonder... has there been any pattern with what the RFI requests relate too and the time it then takes for the grant to then come through? I just don’t understand the seemingly sporadic nature of it all. How some have had grants soon after their RFI and others are still waiting.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Being pro or anti EU is a ridiculous question. The EU is the EU. If you are asking what I think our relationship with the EU should be, then I think our future sits outside the EU. But very closely related to the EU. What affects the EU affects us by the nature of our closeness, so I'm certainly not rejoicing in any pain the EU is about to receive, and I would hope that brexit should have as little damage to the UK or the EU. I disagree with the eurozone. If you want to understand what I'm thinking, try and read what I'm writing. I'm rarely cryptic, but there are a lot of varied and complicated issues. It was never as simple as in or out. It's just taken some people a long time to realise that.

    3 year ban

    There is a Medical Treatment visa which is for the exact situation your daughter was in and it only costs $290. What a pity your daughter didn't find out about it before she overstayed her tourist visa. Having the three year ban doesn't stop anyone from applying for a permanent visa. She can still apply for a partner visa but she'll have to wait offshore while it's being processed. Maybe her Australia partner will have to join her in the US if they don't want to be apart?

    3 year ban

    My daughter married an Australian in Septemberin the US. She then went to Australia on a tourist visa as they couldn't afford the fee for the marriage visa yet. A couple of weeks after arriving in Australia, she developed 2 pulmonary embolisms in both lungs. She was hospitalized there. The doctors said she could not fly per the requirementsof her visa. It would put her life in jeopardy. She contacted immigration to inquire about an extension and was told there was nothing they could do. There were no other visas that fit her situation. When she was able to fly, she booked her ticket to Indonesia and at the airport was told she could not come back to Australia for 3 years. She is in Indonesia now . They don't have the money for a marriage visa or a migration attorney. This is a legitimate marriage and they don't want to be separated. She is American. She has the documentation from the doctors saying she couldn't fly. Any advise?

    I don’t think it’s really about just having a skill/certificate that’s needed in oz. You need to be an experienced tradie/professional etc with a solid employment history specialising in one field.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2019/02/14/help-struggling-southern-nations-get-rich-restore-faith-eu-lagarde/ Rather than try and adjust the problem to fit the solution, surely it makes more sense to change the solution to fit the problem. The faults of the euro have been clearly displayed for the last twelve years. Surely by now someone has the guts to admit the error and fix it? It's unbalanced. It will never work until it's balanced.

    Partnership visa

    As you are unlikely to meet the de-facto requirements for a partnership visa, I would suggest you have a few trips between you to be sure you both want to be together forever and then just go the prospective marriage visa! Me and hubby knew within weeks ‘this was it’! Engaged within 3 months, joint house bought within 6 months, would have been married soon after if little bun in the oven hadn’t been a wonderful surprise!! Easier for us as we were of course living in the same country but when you know it’s the one you know!! Interestingly, we went through the whole visa process proving we were bona fide de-facto, not too arduous with a child and everything in joint names but stressful nevertheless with the additional documentation, we then, after going through all that pain, got married the day before we flew out !!
  24. @Marilynapparently someone (freedy?) on here applied for 143 as soon as grant of 173 came through - before even validating the 173 and apparently it’s been accepted. So if that’s right you could do the same? Always thought you had to validate first but apparently not!
