  1. Congratulations. Have a fantastic time in Bali and be careful crossing the roads!! ??
  2. If you are going this alone, I can highly recommend @Alan Collett He was worth every penny (cent) we paid him last year.
  3. Hi folks. I used to follow @Catlady2014‘s progress with interest as I always assumed we would get our visas a couple of months after her, having applied a couple of months after her. If you look at both our signatures, we actually got our visas first!! Loving life here, especially laying on the beach mid January

    Parent visa question

    I would suggest they look at this thread. It’s an absolute mine of information.... https://www.pomsinoz.com/topic/50481-the-brand-new-pio-parents-visa-thread/
  5. We have just moved into a property in Lynbrook (close to Cranbourne) and need the services of a plumber, an electrician and a fencer. Are there any of said tradies on here, or is there anyone in the same area who could recommend some? Many thanks in advance. NanaJan
  6. At long last......congratulations. I can’t believe how long it took. Enjoy your new life in Australia. If ever you are in Melbourne please let us know
  7. Hi both. @Geoffandgill, @juliew1499 and I are meeting up sometime in November or December at a rooftop bar in the city for a bite to eat and a couple of drinks. Exact date and venue still to be decided but you are more than welcome to join us. Please pm me with your contact details if you fancy it.
  8. Spot on Kath. We spent a few days in Bali. Such a hardship I know........
  9. I think this depends entirely on the case officer dealing with your application and probably how straightforward it is. Our request came within days but others seem to take several months. Good luck.
  10. Welcome 2015 applicants. It is well worth the wait in the end but so frustrating when that processing date sticks.....seemingly forever. Ian, you can add a signature to your posts (in settings) so everyone can see your dates and you can update it as things progress. We also added our destination areas so it is possible to arrange to meet people for drinks etc. And, for anyone thinking about using an agent I can highly recommend @Alan Collett. He is knowledgeable, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. We started the process with an agent who was so inefficient it was almost laughable so we basically sacked him and appointed Alan after reading his posts on here!
  11. We got our request for further information at the beginning of July but didn’t get a case officer until early September. Our case officer was pretty quick off the mark asking for the 2nd VAC but @Catlady2014‘s took several months!! Good Luck
