    Questions on securing a Visa to move to Australia from UK

    Thanks to everyone for all your very helpful answers and yes Marisa Wright I am well aware for the ageism in the Australian job market but I have enough funds to retire when I move there, although I will look for a part time or charity role to stay busy. Your UK experience was great for you in being offered roles as I know many here who also have suffered ageism on UK job hunting, as it is a problem in many countries sadly.

    Questions on securing a Visa to move to Australia from UK

    Thanks Marisa Wright and I assume ages of the 2 parties are irrelevant in if a 309 is granted? I ask as I am in my 50s and my girlfriend is in her 30s.

    Questions on securing a Visa to move to Australia from UK

    Sorry I should have clarified we have been living together in the UK for 3 years, so given this we would apply for the partner visa(309) and if this is granted we have 1 year to move to Australia and once there we can get married in a time frame to suit us? In the unlikely event we decided not to get married once we arrived in Australia this is not a condition of being granted the visa (ie to get married?)
  4. My Australian girlfriend(she born there) and I ( I am born in England) wish to move permanently to Australia and marry there. I have 4 questions please 1) From when we commence the paperwork to apply roughly how long a time period from start to end does it take to get a decision? 2) If we are approved then is there a time window from the date of approval we would need to make the move to Australia, or is it open ended? 3) Once we move to Australia I assume there is a time window we need to marry within on arrival? 4) What is the rough cost in UK pounds to do the visa process?
  5. Hello, I am in my late 50s and plan to move for good to Australia in the next few years with my Australian girlfriend and marry her a couple of years after arrival. I have recently been diagnosed with a very low level prostate cancer contained within just my prostate, which the experts say is so low they do not advise any treatment. Rather, they have strongly advised me to go onto what is called "active surveillance" which is monitoring me and only doing some treatment is the cancer develops. They have told me it may not ever develop and if it stays at its low level there is no need for any treatment, given all treatment options have some rather nasty side effects affecting bowels and water works etc which are best avoided, unless treatment becomes essential due to the cancer growing. Active surveillance is a very accepted treatment in Australia my specialist urologist Dr ( who has worked there) tells me. My question is if I apply in a few years time to move to Australia and I have this low level cancer and am on active surveillance and have been in a relationship with my girlfriend with evidence for some 10 years and am planning to marry in Australia, I would still be allowed to make to move to the country? I would not face being blocked entry on any medical grounds?
