    We are on the Mornington Peninsula. Beautiful down this way. How about you?

    Skillselect ENS 186 Timeline

    Congratulations! That's great news! Have fun! Good bye to all the stress of waiting and checking. Happy for you.
  4. @CEJ I think these past 4 months have been worse than the previous 39! I was there on holiday this time last year for my daughter's birthday and told her it would be the last birthday we will be apart but now her bday is on Thursday and I am still in the UK

    I ve been waiting for 17 months and still haven’t heard anything not even about the nomination. Current waiting time shows 15 to 19 months.

    Can't locate SP40 form in immi website?

    Thankyou, I think you're right. Form 40SP is titled 'Sponsorship for a partner to migrate to Australia' and when I view my completed online sponsorship application the heading up the top of the form is 'Sponsorship for a partner to migrate to Australia'. So I guess they're one and the same? Still seems odd it's recommending attaching form 40sp when the application has replaced that form.
  7. I just really think it will be a lot longer than the current nearly 4 years wait. But it’s The only way! I think it’s because my daughter has just gone back home to Oz after a visit and we are both feeling sad!!
  8. I am a registered nurse , i have applied for 489 visa in WA as i have got stat invitation. I am confused whether i need a job offer letter to be eligible to apply for 489 visa . I am offshore so its difficult for me to get job offer without working visa in Au .
  9. Think about as having already done 2 years and try and forget about it and enjoy your time here.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    As I understand it Brexit will happen because Johnson will not even request an extension so the clock will tick over without any deal on 31 October. Johnson and his fellow travellers will then blame the EU and Parliament for scotching his ‘negotiations’. Presumably he would then be begging the EU for some interim arrangements to keep goods flowing across the borders. You can just imagine the bunch of incompetents in the team he assembles trying to manage the fallout with a minority government containing a significant number of Tory MPs who quite openly have no respect for him. The DUP coalition will go, the SNP will be demanding a referendum on leaving the Union. Could be an entertaining show. I’ll stock up on popcorn.
  11. Nearly there! I’m really thinking what to do about mine now. As a June 2017 applicant it’s going to be years more yet!!

    Yeah applying online, and for every other form they give a link to the specific form when you click the "?" button. But this one form doesn't.

    Looks like it's part of the immi portal - see discussion on another forum below: https://www.australiaforum.com/visas-immigration/286311-form-40sp-online-version.html I applied via the post, so printed out the form, but perhaps given it's an inbuilt part of the online process, it's no longer a standalone form.

    Weird! Are you applying online? Usually there are helpful links in the portal somewhere. I just looked on the Dept of Home Affairs form library, and there's nothing there either...

    Taxation Help Tax Return

    It might be a good idea to find a tax agent/accountant if you find the tax returns difficult. Do not be afraid of telephoning the ATO either.

    Thanks, but I found that one. That's form 40 for parents and aged relatives, not for partner visas. It specifically says "form 40sp"

    I meant 40SP, excuse the typo
  21. Generally they are really looking for people who are importing stuff to sell, do if you had four fridges and three washing machines, all brand new, they are going to ask questions. If all you have is a container full of normal household goods they aren't interested., its more trouble than its worth. Many people don't declare anything, and most of those genuinely don't have anything new. Just don't go out and buy loads of new gear and then ship it in the original packaging, and you'll be fine.

    Police checks for PR

    Yes they sent me a copy of this recently after I asked. They didn't list the convictions in detail on the form. I've no idea if they sent the Australia police check.
  25. Having the opportunity to be able to apply for this visa is a great privilege of which I am so grateful....yes there is a but coming...... but waiting for nearly 45 months now I must say it is for the survival of the mentally fittest.
