  1. 487 Regional Sponsored visa application help

    Hi @sally87 are you already on a 487? Afaik the 487 is no longer possible. You could look at 489? https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/487-
  2. Negative vetassess outcome

    Hi @Xkoba welcome to the forum. Have a chat with @Richard Gregan he can hopefully help
  3. Welcome to the forum @LAW don't forget to add your details to our new visa timeline site https://www.australia-visa-timelines.com/
  4. Immigration Lawyer

    I would highly recommend @Richard Gregan Although are you looking for someone to help with a UK visa?
  5. If you see any posts that aren’t helping or supporting others on this thread please can you report them or pm me and we can get them removed
  6. I have contacted the developer to fix the date input issue, this should also help with the sorting. If there are any other bugs that come up please can I ask that we post them in this thread https://www.pomsinoz.com/topic/197648-australia-visa-timeline-tracker-pomsinoz/ that way I can keep on top of them. Thank you for supporting Pomsinoz and the new Australia Visa Timeline.
  7. Thank you @Kathss56 Pomsinoz now has their very own Visa Timeline Tracker. It has taken many stressful months working with developers in creating a platform which would coexist with Pomsinoz and be user friendly as well as site secure. Our developers evaluated a number of other visa tracker sites out there and found that most of them were unsecure when it came to protecting their members data. We are pleased to say we scored an A+, I wish I could have said that whilst I was studying. Please feel free to add your timeline below. Eventually this will all be integrated in to this forum creating one large platform for people moving to Australia. https://www.australia-visa-timelines.com/
  8. Just need a chat

    @MiniCooperI just wanted to stop by and give you a huge virtual hug. I am so sorry to hear what you are going through, I feel terrible that all I can offer you are words of support and lots of prayers for you and your family. Please feel free to chat whenever you want, that's what we are here for. I found coming back on the forum helped me tremendously. I still have days where I can't face or speak to anyone but I always try and support others when I can. In regards to the visa, have a chat with @Richard Gregan if it's a path you think you and your mum would like to investigate, but for now that needs to be put to one side as you have enough going on.
  9. India has been revealed as the Australia's biggest source of skilled and family migrants, as new figures reveal the nation accepted fewer migrants this financial year. Around 6,400 fewer permanent skilled and family visas were granted in 2016-17 compared to the previous year from a total of 183,600 visas. Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said the figures were in line with the government’s strategy of “ensuring that migration levels are consistent with Australia’s genuine labour market needs”. Just over 20 per cent of migrants came from India, with about 38,854 visas granted - down from 40,145 in 2015–16. Meanwhile, China accounted for 15.4 per cent of migrants, with 9.3 per cent coming from the United Kingdom. Southern Asia; India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and others, now accounts for 30 per cent of the migrant program. This is slightly lower compared with the previous year. The number of Chinese Asian migrants – from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau and Mongolia – rose from 16.9 per cent to 17.1 per cent. Most of the visas were granted to skilled migrants, with a substantial number of those sponsored by employers. Employer-sponsored visas accounted for 39 per cent of the skilled migrants stream. Families sponsoring loved ones accounted for 30 per cent of the total number of migrants, most being applications for partners. Most migrants arrived in New South Wales (33.5 per cent), while Victoria accounted for 25.9 per cent of arrivals followed by Queensland (11.7 per cent) and Western Australia (10.3 per cent).

  10. License fees for swapping UK license to Oz

    Hi @unzippy I'm afraid you do. You have 3 months from leaving another state to change it over. If you aren't going to be residing in Tas for long I would wait until you get to Melbourne.
  11. License fees for swapping UK license to Oz

    Yes you can and yes I think it is of great benefit when using it for ID, that and your passport would give you over 100 points.
  12. License fees for swapping UK license to Oz

    Just found it, and yes it's $18.20 to book an appointment with them to change it over. I can't believe they have started charging https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/licences/licence-fees/driver-licence-and-learner-permit-fees
  13. License fees for swapping UK license to Oz

    @WideonWide I'm sorry to tell you but it is definitely $79.50 for a 3 year one. I know they had a scheme for L/P plates under 25 where they could get a free license if their record was clean from demerit points. I bet the $18 is just to talk to you, or for paying by card.
  14. I would be very interested in the results once it's completed @Roxy
  15. Moving to Bateman's Bay... we need advice!

    Hi @oliviaaaa as a parent myself I know how hard it is to let your children go. I also know how much teenagers want to enjoy their freedom. I think it's a good idea but first you need to plan it rather than acting on impulse. Save some money, accommodation will be your largest expense. Then you have utilities, electric, gas, water, mobile phone, internet. Why Batemans Bay? I would have thought somewhere with a better chance of employment would have been your priority. How old are you and your friend? Signing up for a course may need your parents signature. 'If you are doing a course I'm presuming you will struggle to find time to work as well, so how will you pay for accommodation, food etc. If you apply for Centrelink and are under 21 you may not be approved as it goes off your parents assets. Its great to have ideas and dreams just make sure you plan it first. Good luck
