  1. Hi All, So I posted my defacto application last week, for which they promptly payment! Got an email from our CO this afternoon requesting more information as follows: To date, the evidence you have supplied is not sufficient to make a decision about whether you satisfy the relationship requirement with your sponsor. Therefore, you are required to provide further information to substantiate your claims in this regard. · Statutory declarations from your landlord and flatmates at the time. Also provide a statutory declaration stating the exact day that you moved into a single room together. Boo Hoo! Just getting a house mate and landlord to do stat decs and were doing one confirming the date we started sharing a room (we met in a house share) - unfortunatly we didnt include this in our stat dec. The CO said these didnt need to be signed by a solicitor just signed by the person who wrote them. Im a bit worried we are going to send these in and they will ask for it to be authorised!

  5. Hi, Just wondered if anyone else has been in a similar situation as I am really nervous about my application for citizenship by descent. Australia House received the application yesterday and I've already had a response requesting further information surrounding my 7yr old drink driving offence on my police certificate (I know - idiot, I am not proud of this). To complicate things a bit the police certificate lists two offences, 1. drink driving offence and 2. failure to surrender to custody at appointed time. This 2nd is due to my stupid mix up of the drink driving court date which resulted in me turning up for court a day late and then being processed, however there was no separate penalty given for this and this is detailed on the police certificate. With my application I sent in a letter explaining how much I regret my actions, that I consider this the past and it will never be repeated, but the they're asking for the following - - The background/circumstances surrounding the offence/s (1 & 2) listed on the police certificate. - The background to each outcome of the of the offence/s. - Any other relevant information you wish to include regarding the above. Just wondered if anyone has any similar experience and what the outcome was? Thanks, Lee.
  6. Hi there, We're a little bit concerned about sending a reference from my husband's current employer in case TRA decide to contact them. If our Oz dream goes pear shaped we don't want to jeopardise employment here. We have a person in the company that we trust to write and sign the reference, but printing it on letterhead gives TRA to contact anybody in the company regarding this which would be a nightmare! We're already sending a stat. dec. for the companies my hubby worked for years ago that no longer exist. Would it look bad if we send one for his current employer too? Can anybody shed some light. Thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu :cute:
  7. Hi I wonder if anyone can recommend any websites or books to research suburbs please? Just as a starter really
  8. Not sure if it interests anyone but there is a new site which reports on national early development Mapping Results @ Australia Early Development Index (Australia) you can check out whether an area has a number of kids with developmental difficulties - not sure whether that would influence you whether to choose to live in that area or not but it may reflect the general social structure of the neighbourhood. Some states dont do early childhood education as well as others so ACT is well surveyed but numbers in other states are lower.

  12. Also wondering with bank statements do I just need to provide the first page of the statement when using it show proof of address, and when showing bank transactions between my partner and myself should I just include that page with the relevant information highlighted. Or do I include the full bank statement and just highlight the parts that refer to my defacto application? Do I need to bring both originals and copies to get them signed off at solicitors? Thanks again J
  13. Hello, newbie here to the site ! Hello everyone, I'm hoping somone can help me and my hubby with some information please. We've been in Oz since September 2009, on a Working Holiday Visa. After travelling round we arrived in Perth and don't want to leave ! We managed to get some jobs (me temping for Drake Recruitment and my hubby for an AV company in Glendalough). My hubby has asked his company for Sponsorship and they said that they would consider it, if he got all the information for them to have a look at. We basically said that we would pay any costs, it's worth it to stay out here. Now as I said we're currently on a 1 year working holiday visa, which will expire on the 19th September 2010. What do we need to do, to get sponsored by his company ?? Where do we start ?? Any help would be a big help ! How long does it take ?? What about Medicals etc ?? Many thanks in advance ! Claire

  15. hi, this is my first post here and I would really apreciate any advice people can give. I'm due to emmigrate to Perth in August and I have been training to get a HGV licence in the UK before I go to have something extra to fall back on when I get there. I have a few questions relating to this which I have not found answers to on the forum yet; I understand that a UK HGV licence can not be transferred to Oz without taking a restest in Oz, is this correct and does it apply to a LGV licence too? If I don't get a UK LGV/HGV licence and decide to train and do the test in Oz, I've read that a car licence has to be held for at least 12 months. Is this an Oz car licence or would a UK car licence alse be acceptable, so that I could train for a LGV/HGV as soon as arriving in Oz? Thanks in advance
  16. As I recently got my Aussie passport I thought that I would let you all know how easy it was! Easy - yes! Cheap - no!! Get your passport form and fill in. Make an appointment at your local Australia post and they check and countersign everything. They will then send it all away for you, Easy as that! They`ll tell you if something is wrong, not filled in, pic to small etc etc. We got ours back in under three weeks and that was in December. Excellent service. Cost $232 each roughly including postage
  17. hi. if the CO asks for further information on 2 issues only, does it mean all the rest are ok and i can stop worrying on other things ?:embarrassed: just for my peace of mind.... thanks and merry christmas to all!

  19. Hello All, So as Im sure some of you may know Im putting in my application for defacto visa in, in January. With the view of moving to Melbourne in July with my partner whos from there. Weve just got the joint bank account, live together have various bills, letters, copies of phone bills etc to put all together just got a couple of questions: - Do we have to put originals in when it comes to the bills or would photocopies do? - How many bills, letters, phone bills etc should be put in for evidence? Is it a case of the more the better? I have looked through the booklet and cannot see anything that states a minimum / max requirement. - Re. the solicitor approval, is that just a case of them writing a statement to confirm our bills etc are genuine? I know someone who works in the police so could they do this? Im so excited and nervous – its getting close to posting the application! Want to make sure every things perfect as Ill be in a bit of a pickle if this gets refused! Thanks so much for any responses I really appreciate any feedback J D

    Lease Information for defacto

    Hi All, So weve been gathering information for the defacto visa and will be putting the application in, in January. A friend told me yesterday the lease copy could be a problem.

  22. Hi there, My partner works for BT and is a optical fibre jointer/cabler. Does anyone have any idea what he would need to be able to get a visa. We have tried to apply with my job but we won't be processed until 2012 as I am not on the CSL List. So we are looking at other ways of trying to get out there and thought maybe through my partners job. Our agent does not know a great deal about telecomms and so is unsure about what he would need. I am an Office Manager. Is it worth trying to get employment sponsorship in this and how hard is it to do? Any help is most appreciated we are really in need of some help and advise. Thanks in advance xx

  24. I have just received this email from my migration agent. I am a twenty-nine year old Electrician and have just lodged my 176 with Victoria, all excited and then received this email. HELP: I am writing to you to advise you that the Minister for Immigration has announced that from 23 September 2009, visa applications under the GSM Program will be processed in the following order: Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS and RSMS); State/Territory sponsored with an occupation on the CSL; Family Sponsored with an occupation on the CSL; CSL occupations (not sponsored); State/Territory sponsored –occupation not on the CSL; Occupations on the MODL and family sponsored applications with an occupation NOT on the CSL; and finally All other applications will be processed in the order in which they are received by Immigration The Immigration Department have further advised that, these changes will affect all applications lodged from23 September 2009 AND all applications currently in progress at Immigration (not yet finalised). What this means for you As your nominated occupation is not on the CSL - it means that once your visa application is lodged with the Department of Immigration it will be in a queue waiting further processing. Processing times They further advised the following in relation to processing times: If your nominated occupation is NOT on the CSL and you have lodged or intend to lodge your visa application, it is unlikely that your visa will be finalised before the end of 2012 So what are your options? To have your application processed, you can consider the ENS/RSMS option by finding a sponsoring employer, or If the CSL changes and your occupation is included, then your application may proceed, or If the Immigration Department processes all CSL applications and proceed with those remaining in the processing queue (not likely in the near future) You can withdraw your visa application however no refund of the visa application fee is payable by the Immigration Department - not an option I would recommend as your application is in the queue and we never know when changes will occur that may work in your favor.
