    VISA granted on 4th March! Woohoo! Did not need to re-submit further documents (submitted police checks had expired at time of decision)!

    Yes it was valid at time of application. I was led to believe as long as it was valid at time of submission it was ok. My friends police check had expired prior to her visa being granted and they did not ask for a new one. I think I will wait it out and see what the case officer says.....if I ever get one! Thanks for your advice

    I was only in the UK for a few weeks on holiday. The UK PCC expired at the end of November.

    457 to WHV visa

    HI all, a friend of mine is in Australia on a 457 visa and wants to change to a WHV if possible. Does anyone know if this can be done easily or will it be a huge hassle. Thanks

    I applied for 186 direct entry stream on the 19/10/2014, still waiting....all its said is 'please wait for our office to contact you' for 18 weeks! Just got through to immigration (after waiting 60 mins) to be told I will 'probably' get a CO in the next few weeks. Most of my colleagues got their visas approved within 9-12 weeks! Also been told I will need to resubmit one of my police checks! Really annoying

    Hi All, I have just lodged my application Direct Entry, my Nomination has already been approved, I now need to upload documents, am I right in saying, if they are coloured scanned they do not need to be certified? Also I find the immi site hard to follow. Have I to send my birth cert, employers references and my CV? Sorry to be a fool.

    Mildew

    Already got the Damp rid things and bought a dehumidifier, didn't make a difference. Most of my friends in and around Sydney haven't had a problem. Thanks anyway!! Definitely no plans to move to another state!!

    Mildew

    Hi Folks We are problems with mildew in our apartment, despite the window being opened 80% of the time and doing all the advised things we still keep getting it, out letting agent reckons its a common problem in Sydney!! Does anyone else have this problem? The apartment is under two years old! I have been experiencing some respiratory issues lately, my GP says its most likely due to the mildew!! We have signed our lease till next year!! Can we terminate this before hand due to this? Any help or advice welcome.

    I don't understand either. I'm not sure if I asked for express delivery when I applied, it was so long ago! I have offered to pay additional for express post. If they ever respond to my emails I will find out. Feel like my hands are tied. Don't know what else to do!

    Just called UKPA and have been advised it is 'highly unlikely' I will have my new passport before I am due to travel!! I can not believe this its a complete joke!! The most annoying thing is that I can't do a dam thing about it! :arghh:

    Thanks again Paisleylass. How long did your hubbys passport take to be delivered? I will ring them again in a bit. Hoping DHL deliver at weekends if not there's only 6 days left! c
