    Thank you for your advice but we are done now hun, 20 grand out of pocket already after appiling for a family of five twice around and paying for skills assessment, Australian qualification, ielts, migration agent, medicals and police checks not to mention all the other bits that add up. It's Australia's loss time to move on and start living again x

    First time around we applied and waited 8 months for application to be processed and the salon went into liquidation so I had no choice but to withdraw and find a new sponsor. Been very unlucky

    When they came to opening the file they didn't ask for any further information. They said that it appeared that the salon had created the job rather than it being a genuine need for me. Originally I was replacing a senior hairdresser. They left it so long and then said as the business manged to trade without me for the passed two years they took that as they didn't need me.

    Secound time around and After over 22 months of living this nightmare our nomination was refused ! Anyone got anyware with going forward to contest it ? Refused due to apparently the position not being "genuine". Be nice if they could have told us that 2 years ago. Immigration are an absolute joke and are messing with people's lives.
  8. Hi guys. So I received an email today. The nomination was refused for a silly reson. They said that my employer did not justify why they were taking me on. 

    22 months to get a big fat NO ! 

    My employer is considering contesting it but I see no point.

    That's me done 20 grand and 5 years of our lives and dreams shattered.


    I wish you guys all the best and hope you get your yes as everyone going through this nightmare deserves a yes.

    Thanks for all the support of the past 3 years.

      Omg Carrie,


      I have only just read this, as you can see i have taken a huge step back and tried to focus on our time here. 


      I really cannot believe you got a NO! i always thought no news was good news and refusals always seemed to be quicker. 

      What are your plans now?

      I'm sorry ?

      Sorry to hear that Deep. I'm unsure if your visa application will be relevant to ours as we are both hairdressers and i believe it goes in groups of occupations. Perhaps you should make an official complaint.

      Yea Bell me and my employer had  done everything possible. So we stop bothering thm frm last year as we know it's not going to effect them. So m just happy as they are going. M wrking wth my employer since 2010 and it's 30yrs old bussiness. Thts why both of us  dnt take any headache. May be department waiting for bussiness to close down which is not going to happen.
