    sons visa application

    Hi There,long story short myself my hubby and daughter have permanent residency visa,s,however my 6 year old son has not. We went through the process and got him his visa but we just could not get to OZ to validate it , even when we got an extension we did not manage to get it done(totally sick as cost a lot of money and time and effort). What I was wondering is if any one knows if it is possible for us still to go and to get our sons visa whilst living in Australia and any ideas of the timescales. We dont want to go then have to leave because our son is only on a tourist visa or whatever type of visa he would qualify for. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    missing deadline for entry date

    thanks for your reply its such a hard decision to make as not all of us can make it so would just be me & little 1 to validate & a big expense at that . Why do they make things so hard cheers

    missing deadline for entry date

    HI not with the childs visa they gave a year from 1st application but didnt grant until dec which only gave us 5 months we applied last may 2011 cheers
  11. Can anyone help my 5yr son has been granted his visa dec 2011 & they have given us a 5 month deadline entry date of May 2012 to kick start this however this does not really seem possible at the min. I have emailed them & they have said you should try to stick to the entry date as they cant guarantee an extension if you miss this date. Has anyone been through this situation & if so did you get another date without having to go through it all again & re-apply for his visa ? thanks

    Do I spend even more money!!!

    thanks for the reply well its oz or a family holiday to portugal as cant do it all & thats when my hols are from work. i just wish I had a crystal ball but he when you read all the posts there are so many people alike. ps not all the hols are europe some are in good old UK. the flights seem to be going up by the day especially around easter time so I really need to make my mind up . i just dont want to regret my decision & we have done all the pro's & cons good & bad lists you can think off . we spent a years working visa in sydney when we were younger but so much will have changed since then. Ive set myself a deadline to decide by the end feb so clocks ticking:) cheers lorraine
