    School Fees on a Sponsored Visa

    I would recommend double checking as things have changed a lot since 2005.

    Do your own research, do not just rely on a company. And if they are actually going to help you get the visa make sure they employ an agent who is MARA registered, and that he or she is overseeing your case. immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/business-innovation-and-investment-188 https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/business-innovation-and-investment-888/investor-stream

    Skillselect ENS 186 Timeline

    You cannot import a Nomination application because it is your employer's application, not yours. For the same reason, you cannot check the status.
  4. Hindsight is wonderful but hy on earth didn't she go the Partner route straight away? Professional advice would be sensible, as its now quite complex.
  5. For a 189/190 if you apply onshore while holding a valid visa (eg tourist visa) you get a BVA which kicks in when the other visa expires and carries the same conditions as the other visa. You might get permission to work if you can prove extreme hardship. Wait times are irrelevant - only a few years back it took 2-3 years regularly to get a skils visa, and the Bridging Visa conditions were the same then
  6. And that is the point I was trying to make for James. The quote he used is from a section of an agent's website which os talking about Partner Visas, NOT skilled visas.

    SC190 Obligation Warning

    It is a moral obligation, however read the first post on the thread and you will see that people are now expected to live up to their promises (novel idea, but its about time!)
  8. So it is a Partner Visa you are applying for? In that case, yes, the BVA comes with full working rights. I thought you were applying for a 189, which has different rules.
  9. Source? For the benefit of the many people who will follow you down this route. Also interested that unlike a normal BVA which mirrors the work rights of the original visa, this route apparently give you work rights of the visa you are applying for. Full working right before your working visa is granted? Interesting
  10. If you apply offshore you will not get a Bridging Visa. You cannot just arrive as a tourist and apply for a Bridging Visa, doesn't work like that. A bridging Visa is granted when you apply ONSHORE for a visa, whilst holding another valid visa.

    Hopefully he had a visa as well as his knives?
  12. Your skills assessment costs will very depending n what skill it is and who the assessing body are. Visa costs vary depending on which visa and how many dependents you have Every agent has their own fee schedule Medical costs vary depending on where you go and whether any extra tests are needed. You then need to factor in registration and licensing costs, especially for an electrician

    any legal way to get UK pension tax free?

    Are you talking about a private/company pension or state pension?

    You don't get a visa by having "an appointment at the embassy" these days (or even at the High Commission. Many of us have friends who got visas with no problems but they have totally different skills and qualifications. What visa are you applying for when you go for this supposed appointment?

    Its a High Commission not a consulate and phoning them for advice is NOT a good idea. They are not trained to answer anything beyond basic queries. If you want professional help go to a registered migration agent.
