    Moving to Victoria 2011?

    Hi, I hope you do not mind me during the conversation, we would like to emigrate to Mornington/Mt Martha in 2012. We came in August and loved it, we have our visa and State Sponsorship for Victoria. Since arriving home, things have not moved on, ideally because we have young children my husband would like to have a job before we go. My husband is an electrician and at the moment we run a small Business, however it appears that his qualifications are not recognized in Australia. We have looked at doing a course called down under traddies in England and we have put my husbands CV on the migration web site. Any advice or help would be gratefully appreciated. Chelle! :chatterbox::smile:

    Helpppppppppp!!!!!!!! We are a family of four going to Melbourne Australia in August to get our visa's stamped, we have not yet booked our hotel. Can anyone recommend a good hotel in Melbourne or near by. We plan to use the hotel as a base, so that we can visit Berrick, Mt Martha and a few more areas we would like to move too. Any help would be welcome, thank-you.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: :arghh:

    Hi John, Thanks for that! sounds like you will be ok. Unfortunately our agent did not lodge anything before sep09. I have checked with her on more than one occassion and she has advised me we are on the list but if nothing changes could be looking at a long wait.:confused: GOOD LUCK TO EVERY ONE WHO COMPLETED PRIOR TO SEPT 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Vickymel! Thank-you for your advice, as far as we can gather we missed the boat lodging our application in Septembe 2009. We started on a 175 cause my husband is an electrician and at the time was on the csl list, we took our time so everthing we lodged was spot on and also because we have a young family.( too much time' I think' ) Our case workers not DIAC officers changed three times during us lodging our application, we did complete on a 175 and then changed to a 176 but not before Sept2009 and we have now been told that our visa was only lodged january 10 (176). oh no!!!!!! We have been advised we are now on the list but have a long wait(2012):no: Wish we had of used PIO prior to sept 2009, once again thanks for your help!!!!!!! Chelle.:spinny:

    HI Tasha, Thankyou for putting our details onto the front page, we lodged our application on the the 04/01/2010 (we lodged on a 176 visa as our migration case worker advised us to change from a 175 due to the changes which occured in sep/09. Since starting our application it has been confusing at times due to us having had three migration Case workers but as previously stated , we should of lodged sooner,just like everyone else in the same boat.:smile: Hope I have given enough information Tasha!!!!!!!
