    How long to process 175?

    THere are so many posts and different answers, but if one submit a 175 e-visa say on 1 January 2011, how long can it be before you actually get that visa, medicals and police checks all included? Just an estimate would be fine as I have heard from 2-5years! :arghh: Are there any chances that they will improve their processing times in the future or is it just gonna get worse? Boesman

    How long to update medical sent via courier?

    We all had our medical's on Monday 13th. All were sent electronically, except for our youngest daughter as I had to get her a new passport as hers was just short of the 2 years. Her medical was sent via courier on Tuesday 14th and was signed for in Sydney on Friday 17th. But it is still showing as required on the Status Enquiry page. Does anyone know how long it normally takes for them to process medical's sent manually. We were given till the 22nd Dec to send everything back to our CO. We've sent the tracking number, so know that they know it's been sent, but just curious to know how long it will take to process. Her medical is all that we are waiting on now. :arghh: Thanks:wubclub:

  11. I applied for Partner Visa 820 (Onshore) on march 2009, It has been 21 months now and they still haven't granted me the Temporary Visa 820. There is no problem with the application but my CO said the External Checks taking long and said she can't do anything about it. Can anyone tell me know what to do? and Am i gonna be granted Permenant 801 when 2 years have passed, or do I have to wait as well during the second stage? anyone here know anything please advise me! thanks
  12. So when will you know if its for you? do you have a figure in mind? 6 months? a year? go with the flow? If one of you DOESNT settle do you plan on coming back right away? or try to cajole your partner/kids into giving it longer? Do you need to have stayed there a good length of time before you know its for you? Have you made a pact like us,if one doesnt like itt thats it,no arguing,just come back?

    TRA how long

    Hi just wondering how long it took for people's TRA assessments to come back , we were told 3 to 4 weeks ?? Brides x
  14. Hi, me and my partner want to move to Queensland. We both apply under the points system as were both under 25, Im a mechanical engineer/fitter, specifically working with pumps and water systems. The OH is a dental nurse My question is, If we meet the requirements how long would I have to stay in the mechanical trade until I could change career? Just weighin up my options as I do not want to be restricted to a job in engineering all my life. Is your visa dependant on your remaining in that chosen trade profession or can you change career after say X amount of years. Hope that makes sense. Thanks, Dan

    How long are medicals valid for?

    We got medicals done in March and front loaded our 176 application (that was in the days we thought it would be granted by xmas). We have now changed to a 119 RSMS visa and should have a case officer shortly. Today we took my newborn son for his medical and the panel doctor more or less said the March medicals would be expired, i was under the impression they lasted a year. Could do without having to pay out another £1000 to redo them.

  17. Hi everyone Just a quick question for you all. We sent the hard copies of all our required documents to ACT (after doing the initial application online) last Friday (19th November) via Royal Mail Internation Signed for. We've tried checking the Track and Trace code and it hasn't confirmed that it has been received by ACT yet. We were just wondering what other people's experiences have been like, and how long it took between sending the documents and ACT confirming that they have received them. Thanks in advance for your help Natalie

    Insurance -long term one way

    We are planning to travel to Australia in June on a long term visitor visa and stay there with my daughter until our visa is granted around the end of the year. I know we have to go offfshore when the visa is granted but are intending to go to Singapore and not return to the UK. Has anyone done this and what did you do about insurance? I have been trying to find some travel insurance to cover us for the period before we become residents. I . I have looked at long stay policies, but these don't offer cover for one way trips. And the one way trips don't offer cover for long enough. We are mainly concerned about any medical costs which may arise. I know there is a reciprocal agreement with Medicare, but am worried this won't be enough. Any advice appreciated.
