    My NOC do not have any date of issue so that won't be a problem, as the NOC is valid till the validity of License.

    I am not sure but I asked the FO and they said that only NOC attestation is done by FO, rest can be done from Notary Public. The agent also said the same but their body language said something else and I felt that they didn't know exactly. Still please check it out and do let people know and I would appreciate if you can PM me that.

    Hi everyone ... just sharing a post regarding DoT WA driving license procedure that might be beneficial for those having WA SS ... If you have a Pakistan driving license, then the procedure for WA is as follows: 1- GET NOC. You need to get an NOC from the same licensing branch in Pakistan from where you got your license. 2- ATTEST NOC by FO. Then that NOC needs to be attested by the Foreign office (http://www.mofa.gov.pk/content.php?pageID=consaffairs) 3- GET AUTHENTICITY LETTER FROM CONSULATE/HI COMMISSION. Send the attested NOC along with attested photocopy of your NIC, Passport & Driving license to Pakistan High Commission in Canberra or the Consulate General of Pakistan in Sydney. You will need to send attestation fee of 8 AUD as fee in the form of postal money order along with a return envelope (postage paid). See http://www.pakistan.org.au/driving_license.php for more details. 4- RECEIVE THE LETTER. Consulate/High Commission will send you a letter saying that your Pakistan driving license is authentic. They will also send a copy to your state's department of Transport. Now you can apply for the license in Australia. 5- PASS THE THEORY AND PRACTICAL DRIVING TEST: You have to read the road rules for passing the theory test, and then I suggest at least a class or two with a professional driving school to get good tips on practical driving in Australia.http://www.transport.wa.gov.au/licensing/20669.asp Also Please note that there is a 2 year requirement. This is from the DoT WA website: "Provisional licence: If you are under 19 years of age or have held your overseas licence for less than two years, you will be granted a provisional WA driver’s licence. " Seehttp://www.transport.wa.gov.au/mediaFiles/marine/LBU_DL_B_AuthDriveWAOverseas.pdf NB: Before going there it is advisable to do step 1 & 2. For step 2 (only for those in Karachi ): MFO office adjacent to the gate of FTC on Shahra-e-Faisal. They close the gate at 1200 Hrs. I don't know the rest of the official procedure. I used an agent and got it in 1 hr otherwise it takes around 2-3 days. So the choice is between time and money. Also I don't know the procedure for NOC also, I used a 'Jugar'. Stay safe and remember me in your prayers ...

    TCS is the courier of choice ... will charge around PKRs. 350 to send and you will have to pay PKRs. 315 when they deliver it back to your address ... took around 5 working days in my case ... Process for Visa Evidencing ... Docs and Procedure ... 1. Bank draft of PKRs. 7,100/- (one applicant fee) in the name of AUSTRALIAN HIGH COMMISSION, ISLAMABAD ... 2. Form 1405 filled ... http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/1405.pdf 3. Visa grant letter ... 4. Original Passport(s) ... 5. Mailing Address ... Immigration and Citizenship Section, Australian High Commission, Constitution Avenue & Ispahani Road, Diplomatic Enclave No. 1, Sector G-5/4, ISLAMABAD - PAKISTAN ... Telephone: 051 835 5500 ... Reference: http://www.pakistan.embassy.gov.au/islm/120822pg17diac.html N.B. make a call to the embassy and ask for the fee ... it tends to change and they do not update their website ... I sent a bank draft of PKRs. 6,900/- but was returned as it was of lesser amount ... its been a months since I have mailed them to change the figure but they only sent an email in which they apologised for the inconvenience and its still the same old amount ... I will also ask you and any other applicant in near future, to make a complain regarding this on mail ... I think that will be all ...

    ** I don't have any document to support above two activities. Seniors, please suggest what to do? you do not need to provide any documents as proof, explain it in simple words and try to remember or guess the dates if possible. NOTE: Does this email means my security checks are done? .... In my case it was 'No' ... got grant after 6 months ... CO never asked me any document since i lodged my application. Everything was front-loaded (Form 80 etc.) ... same as my case ... I sent an email couple of days ago to my CO asking for commencing date of my SC. ... I sent my new PP details and asked abt the status of my application ...

    well dada ... lets say there are two sides to it ... Moral Side: You land directly in your sponsoring state and live there for the next two years ... Legal Side: You live where ever you want ... due to the vague wordings of the SS letter i.e for a period of two years after obtaining visa and at least the first 2 years after visa grant ... since in both statement its after obtaining visa grant ... so when does the counting starts from the day you are granted the visa or the day you land ... but moral side is to be followed as theworm said and in the manner discussed above ... I tell stories a lot so let me tell you a story ... I received my EA letter (signed 29-06-11) on 22-07-11 ... the policy changed from 120 points to 65 ... in the new system I fall short of 5 points ... I missed the first policy by 8 months and second policy by 22 days .... like mentioned before SA refused my SS application after 60 days and WA accepted my SS in 14 hrs and hence the decisive 5 points ... I felt in debt to WA and decided then that I will abide by whatever they say ... I may not be going to WA for my validation trip (due to personal reasons) but I will land in Perth once I move permanently ... InshAllah ...

    Lolz ... in this scenario I think I am Aamir Khan's fan ... as I have tattooed the commitment ... you are right ... However, what i was trying to explain was that, they can write whatever they want but neither DIAC nor the State will put u in jail for it as it is not a law and it has not been an issue when applying for Passport till now ... but like you said and I completely agree that in the future there will be a law and can cause problems ... if anyone have to leave their sponsoring State, it is advisable to get permission before doing it and with a strong reason ... Also, my intentions are never to persuade anyone to do it ... was just sharing the information ... Agree with Rezasol ...

    The SS letter says this regarding the 2 years stay ... You remain living and working in Western Australia for a period of two years after obtaining your visa ... it can be safely deduced that one has to live 2 years out of the 5 years in the sponsoring state anytime as its not clearly mentioned ... besides that, the bond u sign with State is completely ethical and has nothing to do with DIAC ... If it was otherwise, u would have been issued a visa with conditions written on it, instead the grant letter clearly states below (image) ... other reason is that u declare that u will transfer sufficient funds for settlement etc but CO never asks for any proof of those funds ... As for the issue of Medicare you mentioned ... I will get back to you on it when I have gathered information of the same ... will take some time ...

    Thank you for your kind and sincere words ... I will be going to Sydney for a few months ... get back and complete my final MBA semester here at KU ... next year I will move permanently to Perth inshaAllah ... will help whatever that is in my capacity ... I have seen some very tough time in my life but this waiting period inflicted the worst and long prevailing mental torture ... and I pray that all the guys waiting for their SC to finish, get their grants soon ...
