  1. Hello, My partner and I applied for the de facto visa about 12 days ago and haven't heard anything yet. I know this is usually fairly quick but that it can take up to three months. I'm the one applying - he's Australian - and he's here on a tourist visa at the moment, until mine is granted. The tourist visa runs out in December - I know it's a long way off and (fingers crossed) we should have heard something by then, but does anyone know whether there's a bridging visa he can get to allow him to stay in the UK until we both leave? It would only need to be for a month or so.. He's been out of the country and returned once to get this tourist visa (he was originally on a two-year working holiday visa). Is going out of the country and coming back in an option? I would hate for him to be turned away at immigration! All advice gratefully received, x

    457 Visa & Bridging Visas?

    We received some great news Saturday the OH employers who are sponsoring him on a 457 visa that they have received approval for sponsorship and nomination and we have been told to submit our application. They also attached their offer of employment which the OH has to sign and return. The employer has stated that his period of employment will be "a minimum of 2 years" which is not a surprise as following conversations with them they will be sponsoring the OH for a ENSOL permanent visa once 2 years of australian working onshore has elapsed to overcome the necessity for skills assessment (thats another long story I wont bore you with now). My main concern is what happens between the end of the 457 visa and the approval of the permanent one. I asked the employer what they actually put on their application with regards to period of employment and she said she put "minimum 2 years" which isnt exactly precise. How will the case officer calculate the length of our visa based on her application? I have downloaded a copy of our 457 application and the question is asked "proposed period of stay in Australia" - what should I put here? I contacted the employer last night outlining my concerns of the potential eventuality that our visa length might not cover us from the time the 457 ends and the permanent is approved as we cant apply until he has actually completed the two years and with the timescales involved in the application process. She has stated that she is pretty sure their are bridging visa's available for such situations. Is this the case. I feel that it would have been so much easier if she had been more accurate in her application taking into account our plans but hey ho!! Does anyone know if there is anything we could do on our application to ensure that the visa is extended or could the employer contact her approval office to set the record straight so that all bases are covered so to speak. Thanks for reading - I know im waffling lol and I hope you understand my concerns. Any comments would be gratefully received. Tinks x
  3. Hello, I'm new to this forum so i would just like to introduce myself as Ben. I have been in Oz for almost two years now and am going through the migration process. I am curently on a bridging visa awaiting residency status. I want to go back to the UK for three weeks on holiday and to visit family as my nan is sick. Where do I stand with doing this? Can I do it? Any advice would be greatly appriciated.
  4. Im British and married Australian while here on a WHV and in the process of a Spouse (Provisional) Subclass 820 visa and on a bridging visa A until a decision gets made.The application has just been referred to brisbane character assessment unit. Im in Australia but have a job offer in Singapore. Is it possible for me to leave for work for 1 month and come back in the Country no problem? All info appreciated!
  5. Hiya, I've been trying to get my head around the CPV's, but I'm struggling a bit :wacko: We are heading to TAS as soon as we've sold the house. Mum and Dad (just joined PIO as Tassietaffs) are coming with us in Oct for a rekkie whilst we validate the visa's. If they like it they want to get there asap and don't want to wait the 2 years or more for us to settle before they can apply for the CPV's. I've read Gills posts on PIO but just wanted to check out a few things. I understand that they can have a visitor visa for upto 12 months but can this be renewed once in OZ and if so, how many times. Would immi let them have 3 back to back visitor visa's? Also, if they are on a visitor visa, can they buy a house? They are both 68 at the moment so from what I understand, they wouldn't need to have meds for the visitor visa until after they were 70? Then comes the bridging visa, does this mean that they would have to have more meds for this and more for the CPV? Basically, would they be able to re-use their meds and if so, how long are they valid for. Lastly, would they have to be offshore for the visitor renewals, the bridging application and the CPV applications? Soz for the stax of questions, I'm just v confused :twitcy: Any help would be very gratefully received. Cheeeeeeeeeeers CC x
