  1. Hi My queue date for last remaining relative visa was 9 May 2011. I received the visa on the 9 May 2018, 7 years to the day, now preparing to move to Australia next year.
  2. Hi my last remaining relative visa took seven years from applying but I did stay in the UK.

    Hi Sophiavee Well done for waiting so long and getting to Australia. If you don’t mind could you let us know when your visa was approved. Your queue date was a few weeks before mine.

    115 visa approved. 7 years to the day after sending applications off. Still coming to terms with the news. It has been a tough journey but was worth the wait.

    Pension transfer

    Thanks Andy, that is really helpful. I am trying to maximise tax relief on contributions and obtain the most efficient way making withdrawals. I am hoping that I will get confirmation of the visa in the next few months. If it is okay I will give you a call then. Regards

    Pension transfer

    Hi I am hoping to move to Australia within the next two years and want to check my understanding of the current rules regarding pension transfers. I will be 55 in the next couple of months, so should I be filling my SIPP with as much as I can and then transfer it to an Australian superannuation scheme? Will I be able draw on the Australian superannuation tax free? The pension at the moment is not large about £40k, I also have an occupational pension which I will not be transferring. Any advice will be much appreciated.

    Remaining relative visa

    Hi I have a queue date of May 2011, the immi website is showing that it is progressing applications with a queue date before February 2011 and has been that date since about October last year.. I look often to see if it has changed.. It is difficult to know how long the wait will be but people in the queue before you will drop out as their circumstances change so hopefully it will not be as long as some people are saying.
