    Divorce and Name Change

    Seeking some general advice. I came to Aus as a secondary applicant on a 189 skilled independent visa. My ex husband and I have since separated and divorced (in Aus). I would like to change my name back to my maiden name but am unsure if this would impact my visa. I know have the visa in my own right but as a secondary applicant was not sure if changing my name on my visa would change things? Has anyone done this before?
  3. Hey thanks for that I will have to apply again as it’s a new ABN but I am going through a different agent who is cheaper.. Now I just have to find out if I will go onto a bridging A or C!
  4. Like with rats, you will never kill them all. But if you get rid of 90% it is still worthwhile.
  5. Yes the family looked into that, but as Alan said flights are very expensive. plus she is not a great flyer! The new visa is a better option as she also wants to rent out her house in the UK to help cover some of the expense.

  7. Are there any issues if I apply for a working holiday visa while also trying as a Defacto partner on my girlfriends TSS Visa?
  8. I thought we had destroyed Isis? Isn't that why we were bombing Syria?

    Can the UK afford to let ISIS fighters return.

    It appears they were all part of Sri Lankan society, so yet again PB is just stirring and whipping up the usual misinformed hysteria. Try doing some independent research rather than rising to the bait.

    Good idea about the career break - how long is it for? Good luck with the move.
  12. Hi Kian, Thanks for your reply. Are you saying that any identity documents for the sponsor are uploaded with the visa application after the application has been submitted? Im under the impression the sponsor documents were uploaded with the sponsor application? Im trying to understand what you have explained. Are the pdfs uploaded individually after the application has been submitted? Ive been trying to look for images on the internet that shows what someone might have done, but can't find anything! Kind regards.

    Such a terrible tragedy!

    The Catholic Pope decided that they wanted Jerusalem and the holy land under their control after it had been under Muslim occupation for some 400 years. The slaughter sickened even hardened medieval knights.

    Where to live Sudney

    Hi All I'm new here. We were supposed to be going to WA and be near family but changed visas and will be going it alone in Sydney,which is loads more than perth for housing! Can anyone recommend a good area but not overly expensive maybe $600-800 a week for at least 3 bedrooms, we would love to be by the beaches but that budget is to low, so hoping for somewhere around 20-30mins away possibly, also good schools as well would be great! Don't have jobs yet but might do that when we get there so will need to be by engineering and admin work as well. I have looked at loads of places and read loads of reviews so far and feel very confused! Thanks again

    Good for you and very sensible with the career break. I returned last June, it has flown by. Still getting back into things, after 13 years away it’s like migrating to a new country again! Good luck!

    It varies and is something you need to ask at interview.

    Health Insurance for Kidney Disease

    For purposes of migration, insurance isn't relevant to passing the medical as obviously someone could "promise to take insurance" but doesn't. From what you have posted it sounds like you would have significant issues passing the medical, as a result I would strongly recommend speaking to an expert such as George Lombard who is a registered migration agent who specialises in visas with medical complications.

    You could say that about all religions. Even Buddhists have their shame.

    143 Contributory Parent visa

    I don’t’ think anyone can definitively answer this question, but this is a good forum to find information and make the best 'guess' with what little data you can find. Here some info that might help. The Australian visa year starts on the 1st of July each year and IMMI (Home Affairs) publishes an annual report around November. This tells us how many applicants are queuing in each main parent visa stream. In our Contributory Parent category there was 48,595 applicants as of 30th June 2018 and there was 6,015 visas granted that year. And it’s my assumption this will have now increased to over 50,000 with the planning levels reduced for 2019-20. So for anyone applying now (if nothing changes) it will take around 10 years to be processed. IMMI is currently processing up to July 2015 and the queue has been moving about 4 months forward each year. So if this stays the same, you will have 4 years still to wait. But there is some speculation that processing has slowed recently due to problems at Centrelink and if this gets fixed, processing may speed up. I think if I were you, I would expect you to wait another 3 years. But it’s best not to plan to too far in advance as anything can happen, especially with an election looming.
