  1. Hi, my parents applied for a 143 contributory parent visa (offshore) at the end of 2015. We didn't expect the visa processing to take so long but it looks like processing won't start until the end of next year Is there some sort of bridging visa my parents can get so they can come over and live here whilst waiting for the permanent visa to be processed? I hope someone knows the answer. They are missing their grandkids so much. Thanks in advance. Mez
  2. Hi, my parents recently applied for a 143 parent contributory visa. Does anybody know if there is a website to check the current processing queue? Thanks, Mez
  3. Hi, my parents are currently applying for a 143 offshore Contributory parent visa. They are unsure who to make the Visa application charge payable to. They will be paying by cheque. Please can somebody advise? Thanks in advance, Mehul
  4. Hi, we were granted our permanent visa in August and are planning to move to WA in May 2014. After reading the driving legally laws in WA, i'm a little confused/worried. It says that you can drive legally for up to 3 months after your permanent visa being granted. Obviously by the time we make the move, the 3 months will be long gone. Does this mean I won't be able to drive when we arrive in May 2014? :confused: Any help appreciated. Thanks

    Packaging for shipping

    Hi, we got a quote from PSS removals recently and they will provide all the boxes/packaging materials. They will bring them over on the day of the move and pack everything for us. I believe they empty any boxes u have prepacked and use their own. I guess that's how they all operate. Hope that helps.

    Visa 175 - G5

    Hi, I was in category 5 and was moved up to category 4 after the successful new skills assessment. Thanks
  7. Hi, many thanks for your responses. We're currently wading through the websites you've suggested :jiggy:
  8. Hi, we recently were granted our 175 visa and are now planning on our big move. We are moving to Western Australia and plan to be over in May 2014. Please can somebody advise on the best websites to use to find short term furnished rental properties. We're looking to rent for around 6-8 weeks in the Mullaloo/Joondalup (or surrounding) areas. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks, Mehul

    Visa 175 - G5

    175 Visa granted - Over the moon :-)

    It was a total nightmare and made the end result even more special :cute: Cheers
  11. Hi, its been a very long time since my last post on pomsinoz. I just wanted to share our excellent news and offer to help anyone in the situation we were in. We applied under visa subclass 175 (Computing professional NEC) in May 2009. We were waiting very patiently to have a case officer allocated but nothing at all was happening. I then decided to call DIAC back in February this year and they advised me to do another skills assessment. I completed this under the Systems and networks engineer (or something like that). Anyway, we've been granted our visa as of 21st August 2013 and are ecstatic :biglaugh:. Its been such a long wait and to be honest, I sort of gave up on it all. Now reality has struck and we have to decide when we're off. Its a very exciting but nerve wracking time. Anyone need any help, please give me a shout as I understand how stressful the process can be. Thanks, Mehul

    Query regarding 175 visa and skills reassessment

    Oh right, hope i don't have to do that again. Thanks for the info.
  14. Hi, its been a while since i've been on this website as we sort of gave up on our migration hopes. Basically, I applied for a 175 visa back in May 2009 after meeting the points requirement laid out at the time. Since then, due to the changes in the skills list, our priority was downgraded to a priority 5 :cry: I happened to call DIAC a few weeks back and asked if they would be able to estimate how long we will still be waiting. They suggested I should do another skills assessment. If successful, they said I can upload it to my current visa application and our priority will be upgraded to a priority 4. They also advised that I would not have to pay any additional fees to them nor resit an IELTS exam (phew). Please can anyone advise whether I've been provided with the correct information. I've already applied for a new skills assessment with ACS as a 'Network & Systems Engineer'. Really hoping its successful as we feel our hopes are once again reignited :smile: Any advice on this is much appreciated. Thanks.
