    Anyone used Ian Harrop & Associates for their agents?

    I used them in 2008 for a last remaining relative visa,can't recommend them enough.They did a great job,made it very easy.

    Brother as a remaining relative

    Hi, I moved to Melbourne this year on a remaining relative visa,i applied for the visa on 27th feb 2008 and it was granted on 17th August 2008 ,you get six months from issue to validate it.I can't help with the other questions as i don't have any kid's(that i know about!!!).From what i've been told they are keen to bring families together so the process is much quicker than other migrants.they also want to know your history of living with people ,as the older you become the more "bagagge" you have.Hope this helps.good luck

    How long for a 115 visa?

    Thanks for the speedy reply.I've got an agent they say it could take anything from a few months to six months plus,depending how busy London are.As you say partners and children first ,so i'm at the bottom of the pile.From what i'm told not many people my age (36) apply for these visa's as they normally have "baggage"(maybe i'm not normal or very lucky!!!):biglaugh:Hopefully somebody out there is going through the same stream and can give me an idea of how long it takes.Thanks again

    How long for a 115 visa?

    Hello, I'm new to all this,but have been reading the site for the last couple of months.You all seem very friendly So thought i'd take the plunge.......I've applied for a last remaining relative visa (115 class to join my brother , mum and Dad in Melbourne) I applied through London at the end of feb 08 and front loaded the police checks ,medical and xrays .I've got a case officer.There doesn't seem to be many posts about this type of visa,does anybody know what sort of wait i'm looking at?Thanks in advance guys.....
