  1. Don't know if anyone can help. We are now well and truly in Australia - hip hip hooray. Has anyone applied for a Queensland Seniors Card. No sure if we are eligible as we are not a Centrelink customer, or have a veterans Affairs file number.
  2. Sorry to hear you've hit a snag. Hope everything gets sorted soon. We are flying out next Tuesday - can't believe it is actually happening! Good luck. Hope to see you when you get there finally.
  3. As far as I am aware it doesn't affect the eligibility but you can't count the amount received into the annual income of the assurer.
  4. We're getting close to booking our flights out. Does anyone know of any discounts/additional baggage allowance that any airline might offer to emigres?
  5. Hello there - have just picked up this thread again and see that Rosiejaq is having problems with AoS. We had great problems with them, constantly advising us that it was being processed. Eventually, after months of waiting our daughter contacted her federal MP and things started moving – however not in a good way as the response once it came was that it had been rejected. Our daughter re-submitted and, with think with a little more help from her MP, it went ahead pretty quickly. It is certainly worth a try to contact your federal MP. Good luck.
  6. Excellent news! We had our request when we were out for Christmas in 2017. Hopefully not long now until you can be out there permanently! We are still having problems selling our house, but at least we have the visa sorted!
  7. We had problems with our AoS application which was rejected after months of waiting and being told it was being processed (daughter's income was just AUD1K too little in the previous year). Our daughter asked if she could add another person onto the application and was told it was too difficult! However I have read on the forum from months, maybe even years, ago that someone was able to add another person. Fortunately our original application was rejected in May last year so we didn't have to wait long until the next tax year when our daughter's income was sufficient. Ask the question, and if the answer is no then get straight on and submit another application - once our daughter re-submitted hers it went ahead pretty quickly. Good luck.
  8. @kimbosliceDo hope it doesn't take too much longer until you have your good news.
  9. Sounds very similar to our experience with the AoS procedure. Our delay was for a different reason but it wasn't until our daughter's MP got involved that we actually got a response from Centrelink and things eventually started moving. Thank goodness you are now on track, hopefully it won't be too long before everything is done and dusted.
  10. We applied in March 2015 - submitted Form 80, scanned passports and scanned Police checks by e-mail. Everything accepted OK - this was Jan 2018.

  12. You have to go to specified centres. We went somewhere near Birmingham. We had 30 days from requesting them to have them done.
  13. Our sponsor was just short of the requirement in the first of the 2 assessed years! So that would have been obvious from the start - but they took forever to tell us. We thought we had calculated correctly but obviously didn't!
