    Visa 190 Moral Obligation

    That is dangerous advice I hope nobody takes.

    Citizenship Timeline for years 2015-2016

    So does anyone know if you can submit police checks after you apply? The system flashes a warning that all docs should be attached before submission, but if this isn't strictly necessary, we'd like to get our applications in today. Police checks are probably about a week away.

    Yes, there's a specific request for UK police checks in the document request screen. That's only because I've spent over 90 days in the UK. If you haven't done that, I believe you'll only need AFP checks, which Immigration will sort out directly.

    Citizenship Timeline for years 2015-2016

    Hi all - quick question. I've recently become eligible to apply for citizenship and noticed I needed police checks from the UK. Do I have to attach them before I submit the application? Or can I attach them at a later date?

    Sort Out My Visa - Are these still going?

    Are the Visa Bureau even still trading? When I enquired about a visa a few weeks ago I got a email off them saying their not taking any more business. Sounded to me like a company on the way out.

    I know which would get my vote!!

    I'd say well done to Tony Abbott if I thought for a second he didn't remove that outfit the moment the cameras weren't on him and didn't actually do a single thing to help control the fires. Political opportunists who look for photo ops in natural disasters don't deserve praise of any kind.

    Immigration Minister ignorant of his own law

    Correct, Cez. The Minister doesn't understand the law - it's inarguable.
  8. This is pretty embarrassing stuff... http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/oct/21/news-asylumseekers-immigration-government Australia's own immigration minister is hopelessly ignorant of the facts surrounding refugees and asylum seekers. It's not just that he's abusing his position by immorally denigrating the most vulnerable people in the country, it's that he's factually incorrect about the legalities of their method of arrival. This man is clearly unfit for office.
  9. How did it ever affect you, out of interest? No legal boat arrival or asylum seekers (because that's what they were - legal) has ever affected any Australian. The reaction of the Aussies who'd rather believe in things that support their prejudice say everything about their ignorance and nothing about the facts, or legal obligations of their country. To be honest, the popular attitude about 'boat people' is something Australians should feel deeply embarrassed about.

    Bristol is the best City to live in, in the UK!

    Bath is much nicer than Bristol, at least aesthetically. I've been to Bristol a few times and it's never struck me as somewhere I'd like to live. The trouble with these 'charts' is that they measure lots of things that don't make much of a daily impact in terms of quality of life.

    You should be fine then. You'll get your points if applicable. Happy belated birthday

    In your original post, you described your "application". Did you mean your EOI?

    Partner Visa Applications Advice

    As I understand it, you will struggle to get the Spousal visa without having lived together. It's not impossible, but you'll need to provide evidence of commitment by way of photos of the two of you together, declarations from family/friends, travel itineraries together etc., and it'll be down to the discretion of the case officer, who'll probably want to speak to you both as well. You have more chance of getting the Prospective Marriage visa. You just need to provide evidence that you've met (e.g. photos) and that you intend to get married (i.e. Notice of Intended Marriage form). It's possible to get the NOIM without physically being in Australia, but you'll need to set both a date and a venue and have the prospective marriage celebrant sign and send you the form (also have them send a letter confirming the details). You don't need to follow through on this when you actually get married, just as long as you marry within 9 months of the visa grant and apply for the partner visa once you have.

    Because points related to age are assessed at the point the application is submitted. Remember, your EOI is not an application; if you have submitted an EOI but haven't yet applied for your visa, your points will change accordingly and you should receive notification about this (do log in and check, though). If you have received an invitation to apply and lodged an application, any subsequent birthday that would affect your points total, either favourably or otherwise, is inconsequential.
