  3. When will my visa be granted?

    Q. How long does it take for my Australian Visa application to be granted? If you’re applying (or about to apply) for an Australian visa, you want to know how long it’s going to take to be granted. This is understandable, as you’re eager to start your new life in Australia. Having such information will also allow you to get on with other crucial steps in the immigration process. This can include knowing when to put your house up for sale – too early and you may have to move into temporary rental accommodation if your house sells and your visa hasn’t been granted. Conversely, if you delay putting your house up for sale, you may end up with your visa being granted and not being able to move as your house hasn’t sold and your equity is tied up in the property. Other things to consider are knowing when to organise international removals – shipping your goods to Australia takes several weeks. Knowing when to start job hunting, arranging for your children to finish school etc. As you can see, being able to accurately predict when your visa will be granted is very important. There are several ways you can get information to help you determine approximate waiting times: The Department of Immigration and Border Protection The Department of Immigration and Border Protection publish approximate processing times on there website. The information is not specific to your case however and goes along the lines of “75% of applications processed in x number of days” for example. It’s also possible to send a blank email to DIBP for some visas and this will trigger an automated email response which contains approximate processing times. (eg, email parents@border.gov.au for information on parent, child and other family branch visas) Social Media Another method is to visit groups and forums such as www.pomsinoz.com as many members post their visa timelines on the forums to compare with other members timelines. Australia Visa Timelines Immigration Trackers A third way, and a method which is becoming more popular is to utilize an immigration tracker / visa timelines website such as: www.australia-visa-timelines.com This allows you to enter key dates about your visa application and compare them in tabular format with lots of other members. You can look at who’s applied for the same visa as you, the same dates as you, from the same country, occupation etc. This will allow you obtain greater insight into the likely time is will take for your visa to be granted.
  4. Brexit

    I've just read this on the BBC, by no means certain they've got around it.. "In particular, Airbus thinks it can solve the C-Series tariff problem by assembling the plane for US customers inside the US at its factory in Alabama. But, as trade expert Simon Lester of the Cato Institute pointed out to me, it may not be that straightforward. That's because of something known as "trade circumvention" - in crude terms, when a company tries to avoid tariffs by superficially changing the country of origin of its products. Will the US trade authorities (and Boeing) see an Alabama-assembled C-Series as an attempt at circumvention?"

  12. Australian Wealth Gap

    https://www.smsfadviser.com/news/15935-bequests-a-low-priority-for-retirees-survey-shows (03rd Oct 2017) Leaving an inheritance for children is no longer a top priority for older Australians, according to a recent report, with regular income rated as the most important instead. A report produced by National Seniors Australia and Challenger indicates that only 23 per cent of retirees consider leaving money for kids to be very important, and only 3 per cent intend to preserve all their savings for an inheritance. Having a constant stream of regular income to cover essential needs is the top priority for over 50s, with 84 per cent rating this as very important. Ensuring savings last throughout their lifetime is the second highest priority, with 77 per cent of respondents rating this as very important. Having enough funds to pay for medical costs and aged care is the third most important factor, with 71 per cent rating this as important. Chair of retirement income at Challenger, Jeremy Cooper, said these results debunk the myth that bequests are the top priority for retirees. “The need for regular income to avoid running out of money, and to pay for aged care and medical costs, is far more important for older Australians,” said Mr Cooper. National Seniors research director John McCallum said bequests are not central to planning for their retirement and senior Australians “are weighing these up against other trade-offs they must make to deal with longer lifespans”.

  13. Backpackers

    Have seen female backpackers looking for a lift a few times at night near where we live. (We live rural and all around us is agricultural fruit/veg, so lots of backpacking jobs). No public transport up here. I think it's only natural to have concerns / worry, given the cases that have been in the news - thinking of this one - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-03-25/sa-man-found-guilty-of-six-charges-related-to-salt-creek-attack/8383770
