  1. I have just arrived in Australia having been granted a subclass 309 Provisional Spouse Visa. My partner has a car and i have been driving around the area and decided that i should get a full NSW licence. I have a full UK licence and therefore just wanted to transfer it over. When i went to the RTA to apply for my licence they told me that i would have to wait for 6 months before applying for a NSW licence due to the fact that my Visa is classed as temporary. Under NSW rules, a visitor can drive on a foreign licence for 3 months but then i will have to stop driving and wait another 3 months before i can apply for a NSW licence. Does this seem right or am i missing something? Personally, i think that yes my visa is temporary for 2 years until they grant my permanent Spouse Visa, but my intentions are to live in Australia for ever and therefore the temporary part is a bit misleading! Any help or advice would be greatly appriciated:emoticon-signxmas: Tim

    Help with form 80!!

    Hello, We have been asked to submit form 80 in order to complete the subclass 309 application - and are struggling - (I am the Aus citizen, my partner UK) he has to list exact dates for every time he has travelled within the last 10 years - does anyone know if this includes EU travel for UK citizens? As it is not stamped in his passport he really doesn't know how to get the information required - for example he knows he went to Venice, Paris and Amsterdam last year but has no idea of exact dates!! Especially as 10 years back takes him to 14 - how is he possibly going to remember exact dates of travel at 18?! Am also wondering whe it asks about have you, or anyone included this form had a conviction, or been found guilty of etc - I have had a driving offence that went to court a few years back, am I included on the form (as the sponser) or is it just referring to any dependants that may be on there? Does anyone know if it's a good or bad sign if they ask for this form? Thanks!!
  3. A bit confused what the difference is as i thought there was only one spouse visa
  4. Ive noticed that a lot of people on here are going over to oz on a skilled indipendant or sponsored visa and on average it is taking you approx 6 months from application to visa grant. I am planning to go over to oz with fiance you is australian so I will apply for a sub class 309 temporary visa which will cover me for 2 years, then I can apply for a permanant one after that. I am just wondering if anyone else has gone over or is applying for one of these types of visas and how long it will take from application to visa gran. Cheers Mark:smile:
  5. Hi there, Just applying for my spouse visa which will, more than likely, be the temporary one. Just a couple of questions I hope people can answer. Many of the teaching jobs in The Courier Mail say open to permanent residents only. Does this mean I would be blocked from applying for them or are they distinguishing between migrant and holiday visas? Secondly, many people talk about extra baggage allowances when emigrating. Are these still applicable on a temp visa, or does it have to be perm?
