    Holly molly, what are they doing in the visa department in oz? Everything seems to take months or years, the uk takes days, in fact the uk process most of theirs in 48hrs.

    Hi, we applied for our 489 visas when my daughter was 17 back in December 2017 in feb 2018 1 wek after her 18th birthday our application was picked up by a CO and they asked for extra info, my question is are they supposed to process the age she was when we applied or the age she is when they pick up the application tom progress it? cheers
  8. State Sponsorship

    I think it would best to speak to an agent, we're using Ian Harrops 01793822492, otherwise your just guessing.

    the points have no bearing on the visa grant time for 489 visas, the points only come in to play when applying for state sponsorship.

    He could well be right but my timeframe and everyone elses I think he's a bit optimistic, we put our app in the first week of december, heard from co on 19/02 uploaded form 80 on 07/03 and still waiting to hear from the co again.

    Makes no sense, every other agent advises to upload everything at once, without it you can't get a direct grant.

    What? We submitted our medicals and police checks when we applied, why make the process even longer?
  13. Popular trades in QLD?

    Yes, that's what I meant
  14. Popular trades in QLD?

    Commitment isn't an issue, as long as I can earn something to start with, I'd work in McDonalds if I had too.,
  15. Popular trades in QLD?

    Thank you, that's a lot of info, not quite sure what u by until died lol, I'm a qualified diver all be it entry level bit something to work on I guess? I wouldn't mind working for customs and excise, I have seen some IT jobs but think I'd like to try something else, I've done bar work and hospitality in the past, security would be ok wouldn't mind knowing that agency name. Might be worth doing some of those courses, the more I have the easier to find employment.
