    Partner visa advice

    Hello, Yes sorry I forgot to mention that during one of the lockdowns my daughter did fill in the forms for the citizenship by descent. She did a semester abroad in Canada with her uni course and she needed to get two sets of fingerprints done as she had been there over a certain time (can't quite remember exactly) she was then supposed to send them to Canada for analysis. It is a bit of a hassle to be honest she spent £150 just to get the fingerprints done, but she hasn't bothered to do anymore about getting them analysed, which to me was stupid not to follow it up and a waste of money. I agree if you are able to get the citizenship by descent then I think they should do it anyway. As for us , my husband especially has always wanted to try living somewhere warmer (we do realise that it is a very long way to go just for the weather and the heat does get too extreme at times which we know as well) and to be somewhere different as he has lived all his life in Scotland (which again is no back thing). Even before lock down we had gone on about it for years and realise we should of done something about it a long time ago. Due to family illnesses it was put on the back burner. To be nearer to my brother as well should of came before the weather, just the way I typed it oops! We have spent endless nights writing down pro/con lists, we are the type of people who look on the pessimistic side. We basically end up talking ourselves out of it but then a few months down the line start talking about it again. If money wasn't the issue it would be easier, it is a gamble that's for sure. Thanks again for the advice.

    Partner visa advice

    Hello again, Thanks everyone for the replies. We are mulling it over, it's an expensive difficult decision mainly due to our ages and potentially leaving good jobs to not having any once we are there and having our kids living in a different country from us is a big issue, obviously they are not kids but young adults and will be making their own decisions . My brother lives in Brisbane and we may just have to be happy with visiting him and coming back to live in the UK. Then we sit and think to ourselves well you only life once we should just go for it, no regrets and all that. Again I appreciate all your advice and feedback which have answered some of our questions. Thank you!

    Partner visa advice

    Hello, new here! Not sure if I've posted in the correct section. I am Australian born but have lived in Scotland for the last 34 years. My husband and I were toying with the idea of a possible move to Australia. I'm 49 and he is mid 50's. We have a daughter who is 22 and a son who is 20. Son still at Uni and isn't really interested in a move to Australia. My daughter has recently graduated and has a job and would probably go at the drop of a hat. She was looking into it herself. I work as a Teaching Assistant and my husband is in the oil industry. We realise that getting jobs like we have here is probably unrealistic due to our age. Was thinking of applying for the Partner visa? If you were lucky enough to be granted one a) How long do you need to stay in Australia once its granted ie/ is there a minimum stay? b) Would this make my husband a resident and could we come and go as we pleased between the UK and Australia? We would ideally like to retire there not sure how this works with no retirement visa anymore. Sorry for all the questions Would be grateful for any advice as it is a very expensive visa to apply for Thank you
