    You've posted this thread before PB, i'm too pressed for time to find the old one to merge .. but honestly, why does it matter what other people do. Peoples nationality isn't defined by the team they support.

    I didn't read anywhere that the agent was condoning people entering/remaining illegally in countries, just that they had been successful in getting them visas despite having an illegal status. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that the agents who post regularly on PIO have also been successful with visa applications of previous overstayers/illegals. OP - your situation is complicated so it's good that you're working with a migration agent. Hopefully your partner can end their illegal stay in the UK so that they start moving on the right path from an immigration standpoint. It's quite likely your partner visa will get a lot more scrutiny given his history of illegal status so having strong evidence of your relationship over a long period of time would probably be beneficial.

    Had plans to visit this place with some friends tomorrow but rain is forecast. It's a 25 acre rhododendron garden not too far from here.

    Hi all, My husband and I have just had our 189 visas granted and are hoping to move out to Queensland in the new year. He is a builder, he has an NVQ level 3 in Bricklaying which I believe is equivalent to an Australian diploma and he has over 10 years experience. The Queensland license requires an Advanced Diploma. I believe he can apply for the qualification through recognition of prior learning but can’t find much information online about how. Has anyone done this? Would appreciate any advice. Thanks, Cerys

    I always understood this to be asking "other than the fact that you are married" are you related to the sponsor. For example, were they your brother-in-law before you married them? But I'm not sure on this. Seems like a stupid question otherwise if you're obviously related now that you're married to them, but I guess Immigration is entitled to ask stupid questions..

    Questions from the current version of 47SP, to be completed by the applicant ) thats the illegal person in the UK): Have you ever been removed, deported or excluded from any country (including Australia? Have you ever overstayed a visa in any country (including Australia)? And he will have to list In which countries have you lived for 12 months (in total) or more during the last 10 years? =================== Personally I would also be very wary of someone who is a registered migration agent that condones people living somewhere illegally. If they turn a blind eye to those living illegally in the UK, how can one trust them to do the right thing for people wanting to live in Australia? wonder if that breaches MARA conditions in some way? I mean, if they come across instances of people being in Australia illegally I would guess they should report it. So why should they not be expected to do the same with other countries?

    maybe they had bad experiences in the uk. Most poms I knew/know still love the uk and will always support their country of origin the ones that don't are a bit of a laughing stock by poms and real aussies i'm afraid.

    Hi Linda, If it was me, I'd use Form 1022. I've used this form successfully in the past to declare that my daughter (sponsor) has Australian Citizenship. Good luck. David

    So you plan to get PR on a 190, and then sponsor him for a PMV (300)? Or marry hm and sponsor him for a 309/100? He will have to fill in the forms for either stating where he is livng, and give proof of his status there. There is no "should we tell them", he will need to show on what grounds he is in the UK when he applies for his spouse visa. Wpll he have to get a criminal record in the UK? No he won;t have to get one, but he may well get a deportation order You can't keep it silent, unless he leaves the UK and applies from Albania instead. As for the whole issue of expecting people on here to condone him breaking immigration laws left right and centre..........when most of us have jumped through hoops to migrate legally........

    I thought the processing time for the Remaining Relative was still 40-50 years? If so, a spouse visa is at least 40 years faster!

    No that won’t be a problem that it’s stated in weeks. My letter from my university stated something like ‘6 weeks, 7 weeks and 10 weeks of placement.’ Just calculate how many days that is and write it on the form when it asks how many days, that’s what I did.
