    Child Visa Advice

    Thanks guys both our children and under 18... to cut a long store short we were misadvised that we could add my son onto our visa after he was born which it turned out we couldn't this meant we had our entry time waived and in the meantime we had another child leading to the situation that me and my wife have our permanent visa but our children don't.

    Child Visa Advice

    Hi All, We had a visa (189) granted for myself and my wife. We are planning on emigrating early next year however neither of our children are on the visa we are currently planning on applying for child visas however I was wondering if anybody had any experience (or if it was even possible) to move with the children and apply while on shore so that we can have more certainty around our move date rather than hanging on for the visa to come in? Thanks in advance for any advice. Steve

    how does Brexit affect my move??????

    I think those who have secured a Visa should be alright however I expect the number of people looking to apply for overseas visas, Australia included will increase dramatically.

    No I didn't get chance to change it and wouldn't risk doing anything like that heard of some bad outcomes with that sort of thing. Did you get your stuff certified?

    I now have one before and one after. Why do you ask?

    Mine was all relevant but I reckon it can't hurt to put all of your history on although if it's a pain then as long as what you have is enough to satisfy requirements then it should be okay. I'm sure somebody with more knowledge may be able to add to that.

    I also got invited on the 2nd of August - wasn't expecting that so quickly being an accountant on 65 points. Rather typically just 2 days later CPA got back signing off on all my prior work experience so my points would have gone up to 70, either way I'm delighted and will be getting onto submitting the application/arranging health and police checks next week. Congrats to everyone else who got an invite and fingers crossed for everyone else for the next round!

    Statutory Declarations Regulations 1993

    It's good you have somebody willing to sign it nobody I spoke to was so I took Captain C's advice and went to the Australian High Commission in London bit of a trek but very easy once there.

    Well that went well the guy just signed it and stamped it. Total cost £10 plus train fare!

    Well I'll be sure to let you know how it goes and I've left it unsigned as I read that somewhere or other. I've been wondering recently what with the pro rata arrangement for accountants what level of points are actually needed for an invite, I guess that's something only the Immigration Service would know?

    Thanks CaptainC, I've spoken to CPA who have kindly allowed me to resubmit data so I'm going to take your advice and head into London to have the statutory declarations I've put together authorised. Providing this all goes well that should put me on 70 points.

    Actually whilst I'm here, I had my skills assessed by CPA way back in 2013 but following some rather unhelpful prior companies I was only able to get one out of ten previous roles validated so have not been able to claim additional work points at this stage. CPA did say that I would need to make an official statutory declaration confirming certain details and I was wondering if anybody else had encountered anything along these lines?

    I submitted mine last night with 65 points... It would be interesting to know how much of a list has built up since the Accountant ceiling was reached. Best of luck to everyone, exciting times!
