  2. On the following page it is stated it doesn't matter if the applicant has lodged 143. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/sponsored-parent-temporary-870#Eligibility But here under the document section https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/sponsored-parent-temporary-870#HowTo , the applicant must show they are a genuine temporary entrant. On the page for 143, it shows it can only be granted offshore except for certain conditions, excluding 870. I wonder if this indicates something or is just not updated yet. Sadly the clarification didn't clarify much.
  3. Is it really so. I have been sending them status updates. May be that's the reason, visa got delayed. They recently asked me to upload updated pcc. So what should I do now? Just upload the pcc on immi account and don't sent them email telling that pcc has been uploaded.

    Please help! Can't decide where to live.

    Hello Toots and Skani, Many thanks for your replies! Are the people in smaller towns friendly and warm towards Asians? I often have soft spots for small towns but are worried about the residents attitudes towards outsiders. Is it really hard to operate a small business like a convenience stall in these towns? I will be visiting Tasmania in June and hope to find out more. Any comments are most welcomed. Regards.
  7. Hi and thank you for your reply. What I have done so far is create 1 document for the identity things like Birth, Marriage, Passport. Because I don't have a scanner or help, I placed the document on a table and took a photo from my mobile. I then uploaded these and created a folder. I did the same for all other evidence such as invoices, bills, photos etc etc....they are in another document. Some things I did a screen shot of. So everything that is in 1 document-are they called files? Is this correct? In one document, I think there are about 60 images of described as above. I have not made a document for forms 888 or our personal statements yet as still trying to get my head around the way the documents are created. I hope so far I am correct??
  8. Do you have access to a scanner/printer? You just scan several documents one after another, so that they effectively form one large document - for instance, all your financial info. If you don't have access or still don't understand, ask your friends. Someone will have access to a scanner and will know how to scan several documents into one, its a basic office task.

    300 - Prospective Marriage visa query

    Thanks heaps for the quick reply Nikisha and for taking the time to go through all my questions! Every little bit of information we get is extremely helpful! We are going to submit it soon and just have to go through all the things we need and some of it seems rather confusing. We are planning on creating a pdf document for out timeline together and all events that happened for the last two years that we have been together. Do you think the below evidence is enough regarding our relationship: pdf of our relationship over 2 years(includes msgs pictures, joint travel documents, holiday photos, any significant events) and includes our plans for the future statement from 3 friends of ours we are going to take some pre wedding photos (as it is cheaper here then when we get to Australia) Thans!

    New rules for partner points

    It’s actually open right now fyi https://migration.qld.gov.au/skilled-occupation-lists/

    Adult daughter in UK

    Depending on which state you live and where in the state, she could apply for a 489 family sponsored stream which would give some extra points. However, it can be an issue career wise as it can mean she has to live and work in a regional area, but the definition of this ca be very different by state. She will though need to maximise points.

    Couldn't agree more. I work in IT and this is a situation that most of our users couldn't manage alone.

    Thank you. I'll take a look. I just wish that immigration dpt would consider more for those that want to apply for a Partner Visa are not always IT literate and that not everyone knows how to do it!!
  14. Hello, Both my grandparents have passed away. If they were alive one would be 100 and the other 102. I have some of their things I wish to keep as a keep safes. This includes ID cards from the war etc. Included in this collection are old UK Passports. Both expired in 2001 but haven't had the corners clipped. They have Australia stamps and old 663 & 676 tourist visa stickers. Am I likely to get in trouble if my bags are searched and these are found. It is unrealistic that they can be used in any fraud as they are so old. Thanks

    You can try this. It should also reduce the size of the images. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/combine-images/9wzdncrdjpl7
  16. Thank you for your reply. It sounds easy to anyone who is confident with the skills to do this, but I haven't and have no one to physically show me. I am at my wits end as I wouldn't know or understand how to structure everything, merge things etc.....there is nothing on the website that shows pictures of how to do all this, not everyone is good with computers!! I dont have Word either but understand i need this to convert documents to pdf?If it was still a paper form, would not have a problem. I don't know if I should actually risk spending a lot of money for this visa and it gets refused.

    AAT appeal for 187 nomination refusal

    u are absolutely right. it varies state to state. well happy for u that u have already passed these stressful time.
  20. Hi @Aussiebird, you need to group together documents based on the key questions that you answer in the relationship statement. Social Aspects, financial aspects, couple's commitment, how the relationship developed, and the nature of the household. You probably want to have one or possibly two pdf's for each of those key questions, and make sure that the evidence ties in with your statement. You only have 60 available slots on the immi system I think, so you need to be strict about grouping stuff together in a logical way. You could perhaps have one or two social aspects pdf's for example. one for the applicants side of the application, and one for the sponsor. It is best to put the bulk of the evidence in the applicants side of the application, so that you are not using all your allocated slots up too quickly. identity docs need to be uploaded as separate files. It's a good idea to make sure you save files in a way that corresponds with the evidence labels on the immi website. You can find them here. You need to convert and combine all your docs into pdfs, and adobe would be best for this. Each file can only be 5 meg in size so if you don't convert them to pdf's and then shrink them you run the risk of your files being too big. It's fairly straightforward to use. Kian
