  1. Hi there. Need a bit of advice please. My daughter is on a 475 state sponsored skilled visa and is about to apply for the 887 permanent visa. The issue is she is going back to the UK for a holiday once she has applied. Does she need a bridging visa to allow her back in? Her 475 will not have expired but does it cancel out as soon as she applies? The website is so confusing! Thanks any help appreciated.

    Help please over 475 visa!

    Thanks for the reply. I think they will just stick with it and hope to god that it will all turn out well or alternatively we will move down to SA. Bad timing all round this getting pregnant!!

    Help please over 475 visa!

    Hey Millie We definitely would not do anything without prior approval in writing from both states as they want to live in Oz full time as the rest of us all have citizenship now. We came over and had PR immediately though. My son in law is applying for jobs in SA now before they move over and if he is successful in landing himself a job the issue will be solved and they can live there knowing that they will have the income to live on. I am seriously considering moving there ourselves just so that they have the support. Trouble with this is that we all have jobs, friends etc. etc. I really wouldn't worry so much if it wasn't for the baby coming. Thank you for your help :-)

    Hi blossom Yes we know that on a temp visa they won't get benefits and we wouldn't expect that either. I am going to ring DIAC and see what the rules and regs are with this but think it may be easier if we moved to SA for a couple of years!!! This is not a ploy to get out of moving to SA at all, it is only that the circumstances have changed with the baby thing that it is even being considered. Wrussell - I have read the visa letter numerous times and all it says is a regional area in Australia but I would not trust that and would rather know for sure. Thanks for the help :-)

    I don't know why we didn't go for the visa that offers sponsorship by family as I believe we would have been eligible. We live in a postcode that is classed as Regional but in QLD.

    Thank you for your help. She is state sponsored and they will definitely not do anything to risk their visa. I have read too much info on it now and have confused myself as some say it has a clause to this visa that says you have to stay in that state that sponsored you and others say it is only a moral obligation. They have no problem with being in SA and are quite excited for the new challenge but I know it is now going to be so tough on them with her being pregnant as she has the main earning ability and now that will be gone as she won't be able to work for quite a while and when she can go back, she won't have us there to help with childcare. What a dilemma.

  8. Hi there I am a travel agent in QLD and most of the airlines for that time of year are coming in at pretty much the same cost. You will occasionally get offers, try QF and BA as they had an offer recently which I think has finished now. We travelled back with Eva Air (who were brilliant) last July and they were $1830 each. Good luck and if you need help just ask Nicky :-)

    Help please over 475 visa!

    Can anybody help please. My daughter and son in law have been granted a 475 Regional Sponsored Visa (provisional) for South Australia. They were planning to move there in Jan 2014 and then start their 2 years living and 1 year working to satisfy the requirements. Big spanner in the works, she has got pregnant and will now have to move over this May!! Question is, although they are prepared and happy to go to SA, I would rather they were closer to us in Qld or us move there so that they have our support. What are the implications if they move elsewhere regionally on this visa? We now have citizenship so can go anywhere but have built a good circle of friends here so didn't really want to move. We wouldn't want anything to ruin their chances of getting PR eventually. Please don't jump on me for asking this as I am only querying it as a concerned mum. Thanks Nicky
  10. Hi kdal It is quite a funny process getting a rental. The EA's tell you when you can go look, then you have to fill out an application form and then wait to see if you have been successful. Quite stressful when you need a home! We have got one now but not sure if it will be big enough yet, we will see. When will you be there?
  11. Hi all - we are moving to Little Mountain on Friday and have a 17yr old son aswell as older girls so would appreciate any contacts for him. We are in GC at the moment but have got a rental sorted out. By the way we have rented a house with pool and air con and is 5-10 mins to beach and close to town etc. Nicky x

    House Sales!!

    Will keep fingers crossed for you. We had the same, our sons car was broken into outside our house on the Friday and had a viewing on the Sat. The forensic people turned up at the same time as viewers were due and our EA answered the door to them. I had to ask them to leave as that would not have gone down too well would it:arghh:Luckily they were a bit late so missed them.

    Hi there - That is fantastic news, really pleased I was of some help. We would definitely do it if the opportunity arose. Good luck in your new life. :yes:

    House Sales!!

    Oh dear, did you have a bad day? I wasn't trying to cause trouble with my comments, just quoting what I had been told by the EA and by the way have had a house for the last 25+ years and have worked very hard to pay for it, in a nice area with no junkies as neighbours. :smile:
