  3. Hi Guys, Can you help me - I am currently waiting for my PR which was lodged in Dec.'13, my employer assisted my process and we are going for a 186 Visa. Can I work outside of WA ? ... am I required to stay in for work WA - does PR come in different forms ? I am aware that I have to have 2 yrs work with my Company BEFORE we lodge .. A lot of different views out there.. Any ideas - would appreciate any advice / experiences Cheers Shane
  4. Hi This a stab in the dark I met an Irish girl by the name of Edwina from Ireland before Christmas in Westfield Shopping Centre in Cannington - she is new mum just like me and we had a great chat .. we exchanged phone numbers to meet up again .. Edwina was going back to Ireland for Christmas and said she would text after her trip - I think we have gotten the mobile numbers wrong ... IF ANYONE KNOWS AND EDWINA FROM IRELAND I WOULD APPRECIATE IT ... Thanks Amanda

    Nurse here as Defacto - path to PR.

    Hi guys I am on 457 visa , I am working with my sponsor for the past 1yr and 3 months , my girlfriend came out last month on the strength of my 457 on a Defacto Visa ( she is a nurse with all the requirements to work here ie. registration complete ) I want to get PR but my employer wants me to be with them for 2 yrs before they will agree to proceed my question is , would my partner be faster in getting PR than me.
  7. Hi Guys I have a question for ye and would appreciate advice My partner is here on a Defacto visa and she is a nurse with all the requirements to work (she's only here a month) I am here nearly a Year and a half now and REALLY want to get PR I have recently done the IELTs test as I need to get 60 points or wait till this time next yr for my employer to sponsor me. .. My question is , would my partner be faster in getting PR then me and does she need to be in a job first ? Any Advice would be appreciated. thanks a lot
  8. HEY GUYS :jiggy: I GOT GREAT NEWS LAST WEEK - MY PARTNER GOT THE DEFACTO VISA Thank you for all your advice ....
  9. Many thanks !!!! I cant get over how helpful peoplea re on this site ...
  10. Heyy THANK YOU SOOO MUCH ! I must say ye guys are great ! its great to have valuable responses May I be sooo bold as to ask for template copy of what you sent to the Immigration people ?? just to get an idea ? I would be very grateful - IF not I understand totally
  11. GeorgeD George - MANY THANKS for the welcome and the email !!!! Right now we have given everything (skype,emails,pics,plane tickets - hols etc.. to the Case officer as my agent has been utterly useless - so I am going alone (long story ) Anyway - the Case Officer contacted me yest. via phone - (they get an awful name !! but in my case they couldnt be more helpful ) So she accepts thats my PARTNER is a Defacto partner now I think - but she wants to know WHY she didn't come out with me last August when I came to Australia on my 457. I didnt want her to come over leaving a good job that she liked and what IF I didnt like it here !!! ( Please note on my 4357 application I never ticked the box Defacto I ticked it single !!!! I know I know ! but in Ireland if your not married your single - no defacto relationships - as far as I know anyway.... After speaking with the lady yest. she wants a statement as to why my partner now wants to come out to me and why - its all pressure now !! 27 days to go .... what can she do - she came out here for 5 wks in Dec. .. what does she say in the statement - what will sell it to the Case officer ? soo close I think !! We are both interested in starting a family as our age is now against us ... I inted getting engaged asap IF she gets here but EVERYTHING IS ON HOLD now - anymore help would be great - would alot of statements from other people help ? completely at odds as to what else to provide ... IF I submit something is that it ? or would they come back and say we need more ... What else will I send her ??? Cheers
