    Citizenship questions

    Yeah, unfortunately it's not in Junk either. AkaSully2 had the same problem; Immi said it was to do with her password as they've updated the system. Sounds like there's a bug in the system Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Citizenship questions

    Tomorrow I can apply for citizenship and I'm busy today preparing all the forms. I've got a couple of questions... We can't log into our ImmiAccount but don't know why. Someone suggested it's because the system has been updated. Our login was E and then a bunch of numbers. When click to say we've forgotten the password the system says it's sent us an email but we don't receive the email so we're a bit stuck. I tried to call Immi and was 120th in the queue! So just wondering if anyone has had this problem before and if we should just set up a new account and apply on there? I've just realised that 3 of our passports which were renewed last month haven't been updated with Immi. Can I use our old passport numbers which the visas are attached to to apply for citizenship and then submit a change of passport form online? Just thinking this would be easier than sending by post and waiting another couple of weeks! It's just a nightmare as, if I could just log into our account I could have updated them on there today and then applied for citizenship tomorrow. Grrr why is everything more difficult than it needs to be!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Changes to pathway to Citizenship

    That's what I think too which is why I want my application in asap. I know it'll take them an age to process the backlog but I don't want my application behind a bubble of people who may be able to apply who were told not to after 20 April or delayed any further than necessary because I delayed submitting it [emoji20] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Changes to pathway to Citizenship

    I'm frustrated because we became eligible to apply on Friday. If this bill is thrown out then they'll be another flood of applications. I'm trying to get mine in today and can't get past page 6 on the online application as it's saying I'm not Eligible but they haven't asked me any info about our permanent residency yet! I'm 120th in the queue on the phone grrr! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Heres the link but the table isn't simple unfortunately. I remember when my mil applied 2 years ago we worked it out to be a total of $103k for her and her hubby using the table attached...no doubt it's been updated and fees raised since... https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa/Fees
  8. Hi Craig My mil applied in Sept 2013 and has just received her visa in August this year so expect you'll folks will be waiting between 18-24 months unless they slow down further in which case it could be longer. My mil visited on a holiday visa whilst she was waiting for her 173 so they can visit. If it's close to their visa being issued I'd suggest advising Immi as when they issue the visa they'll need to be offshore. Louise
  9. I expected they would ask for it before granting the 173 so was surprised when they didn't. She does have 2 options for sponsors but yes it is now a risk. I talked to her about applying directly for the 143 but she saw that as more of a risk as she didn't want to sell her house until she had a visa (which she needed to do to raise enough funds).
  10. Thanks Val. I'll make sure she keeps enough funds to cover the aos! I would have thought they would ask for it before granting the 173 as anything could happen to your sponsor between grants!
  11. My MiL applied for the temporary contributory parent visa which has recently been granted. She wasn't asked for an assurance of support. I thought they always asked for this but apparently not. Could she be asked for it when she applies for her permanent visa which she'll do as soon as she's onshore?
  12. I don't think they can if there isn't a clause in their contract stating they can... Just depends if you want to have that argument...

    Pregnancy Issues after lodging 190 Visa ..

    Do you think you'll be in Australia before you're wife can no longer travel? If not put everything on hold...my understanding is that you can't add the baby to your visa after its been issued. You would have to make a separate application for your child. Also, I've seen comments stating she won't be able to do the medical anyway as they insist on an X-ray...however, I have a friend who did go through the whole visa process whilst pregnant. You'll probably want to look into this further.

    Class 189 Visa, What after invitation? Plzz Help

    I'd just get on with it Chris. I think you click on the link and it provides you with the letter to enable you to book your medicals. When we did ours 2 1/2 years ago I'd worked out there was about a 9 week wait after being invited to apply and getting your case officer. We booked our medicals for 8 weeks after our invite as we had to fly to the UK to do them and we wanted to ensure we got the cheapest flights as well as maximising the 1 year to validate our visa. We actually received our case officer after 4 weeks and so had to prove we'd booked medicals as they give you a time limit of 30 days (if I recall correctly) after receiving your case officer to submit all documents.
