    Melbourne vs Perth

    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.livingin-australia.com/sunshine-hours-australia/&ved=2ahUKEwjQgpyNtrjjAhWNN8AKHYz7CioQFjAEegQIEhAI&usg=AOvVaw1D40BlzMkmnEh8p7Tijjw4 They are very different cities. Both are in the middle of a housing correction, but Perth will be cheaper. If your work is seasonal, or likely to run out, there aren't many other options if you are looking for a job in Perth. Perth is a pretty city, but many would say it doesn't have the substance of Melbourne. Are you happy in Melbourne?

    189 Visa Application - Lawyer, Barrister, Solicitor

    Thanks for your reply! I note that they require me to send them the original admission certificate. However, my admission certificate is issued for once only. So I don’t really want to send the original to them. I’m not sure how their online application system could help. It seems that I need to courier original documents to them.

    189 Visa - Parents

    Definitely worth investigating, but if the OP is in the UK, I'd say it could be hard to prove dependency, if the parents have access to the aged pension, benefits, council housing etc.

    189 Visa - Parents

    You're right, my mistake. But as you say, that just means 2 years wait instead of 4 before he can apply. To give an idea of how long they'll have to wait after that: Currently, people who applied in early 2015 have reached the head of the queue and are now being processed. There are still over 40,000 applications waiting in the queue. They only grant around 6,000 parent visas each year, so it will take seven years just for those applicants to be processed. Meanwhile, thousands of new applications are being added to the queue every year. By the time the OP's parents apply, who knows what the waiting time might be? That's assuming parent visas are still available by that time. That's why I said, he shouldn't make the decision to migrate assuming he'll be able to bring the parents eventually. It might turn out to be impossible, as it is in some other countries.

    I think you are probably right. It's superfluous anyway. If it had been five runs, they would have gone for a boundary, and may have got it on the next balls.

    Melbourne vs Perth

    Have not lived in Melbourne or Perth but have been a fairly frequent visitor to both for a number of years. I guess it depends upon what type of lifestyle you are after. If you and your partner are city people then both cities offer the cosmopolitan lifestyle and are fairly easy to get around. If on the other hand your are looking for something slightly less urban and more relaxed then I can recommend the South West corner of Australia (WA) This is the area between Bussleton and Margaret River. My grand children are near Dunsborough and I visit regularly. The area has everything. Hospitals, schools, large shops and boutique shopping as well, commerce industry and a great cosmopolitan lifestyle. Farm industries are everywhere, and I dont mean cows and Sheep. There are wineries and breweries galore in the hinterland most of which also have restauraunts. There is a thriving arts scene as well as a keen beach culture. My family has been there for nearly a year and they absolutely love the area. Only last week Tripadvisor elected the South West of WA as the most desirable place to visit or live in the Asia Pacific Region. Go check it out, you will be impressed.

    I think new applications are being dealt with quicker and the backlog has been assigned to a clean up team! This happened with our visa, they stopped processing then new applications leapfrogged ours. Very frustrating. We applied Dec 17 and were citizens in August 18. I guess we were lucky.

    If you have an agent, why did you ask the question here?

    Need Help!!!186 visa

    She needs to " Provide documents that show you have Competent English at the time you submit your application." Taking her IELTS now will not help her application, she needed to have the test already at the time she applied for the visa.

    @Hex Understand Hex. I was just trying to boost the spirits up for the larger good of the forum members but looks like it was a false boost anyways. Most probably the date was May 2018!

    At any age, the materials will be age appropriate. So its more about legal loving relationships being acceptable in society until students reach the age that they need to be taught about the birds/bees(to coin a phrase). So I doubt there will be any sexual content until they hit that’s age (assuming signs of affection such as hugs and kisses aren’t considered sexual).

    @pravincv, not necessarily. HAP ID can be generated by the MA and can be used directly for the health check.

    Hi @furbibi I’m paid by an associated entity - which is also the people I work for- whilst the main business is my sponsor. My nomination for 186 visa has been approved. As long as it makes sense I’m sure you’ll be fine.

    Dependent Child Visa 445

    My agent did his research. I dont have to prove dependency any more. 16 Time of decision criteria 16.1 No need to assess dependency or membership of the family unit Provided the primary applicant has been granted their BS-801 visa, nothing requires an applicant seeking to satisfy the secondary criteria to still be a member of the family unit of, or dependent on, the primary applicant at time of BS-801 decision. Therefore, officers do not need to assess either member of the family unit or dependency requirements. An applicant seeking to satisfy the secondary criteria must satisfy one of the following: they hold a TK-445 or UK-820 visa on the basis of being the member of the family unit or dependent child of a TK-445 or UK-820 visa holder and that person (that is, the primary applicant) has been granted a BS-801 visa - see801.321(a)(i)"
