  7. Hey Readers Does anyone know that once my current 457 visa ends & I go on a bridging visa until my defacto is granted, can I work anywhere including starting my own business or do I have to slog out the 457 employment until defacto is approved? thanks x:smile:

    declaring criminal record

    Hi. Please if anyone can shed some light on this situation: my friend is from UK and applying for defacto with aussie boyf. He had criminal convictions over 10 yrs ago involving drugs (Cannabis/MDMA) and driving offences in separate occasions; she has never been involved with the law. Does the defacto visa ask for this info regarding him & is it necessary for them to declare his convictions prior to lodgement? Thankful for your responses.. AnnB
  10. Hi there Its been a while since logging on to Poms in Oz... its good to be back:wink: have a question though regarding defacto visa.. please point me in the right direction as to where to post my query. many thanks annb

    Really worried about visa & travel

    Thank you! Good to hear that having a case officer is positive! Yeah I just said I was going to be on holiday, I have return flight booked also in case. But how long do these things usually take do you know? x
  14. Hey all I'm seriously worried: I'm in final stages of getting 457 but given the ok from my consultants who are doing my 457, I've booked my flights and applied for a tourist visa to be in Oz a bit earlier for various reasons and I leave THIS SUNDAY. Except I had an email from immigration asking what will I be doing on my tourist visa so they have yet to issue it? Obviously I won't be doing much but I don't know if they'll sort it in time before I travel on Sunday. I am stressing so badly as my arrangements create a domino effect to other people. Do you think I'll be linked to 2 visa applications and that's the hold up? I can't possibly be refused a tourist visa. And what does having a case officer mean? Anyone, please help settle my mind :eek: x
