Dear All I would just like to thank everyone for their help and advice re my offshore Second Stage Partner visa. SUCCESS!!!!!! I am now the proud owner of a PR Subclass BC100 Permanent Resident visa...yes little ol me...yeehaa! I posted paperwork to Brisbane on 8th March (approx). I telephoned Immigration yesterday (approx 45 minute wait) to check if they had actually received my paperwork as I hadn't received the acknowledgement letter back, only to get through to a lovely guy. He asked if I was near a computer and could I go online whilst he waited. So I did and logged into my VEVO account and nearly fell of the office chair. OH MY GOD!! I got it and not only had I got it, it was granted on 9 April 2013, so about a month from posting. Here the recent history for others (hope the links work). http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/migration-issues/179346-2nd-stage-de-facto-visa-requirements.html http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/migration-issues/175568-second-stage-partner-visa-309-a.html I feel very happy and now I can live my life. Next stage Citizenship..so I can be truly Australian. BrownEyedGal:biglaugh:
handh posted a topic in Repealed and Closed VisasHi Guys, We need your help! Facts: We have a 2-year 457 visa. our 457 Visa expires on 7 Oct 2013. 7 Oct 2013 we will reach the 2 year work experience with the same employer, meaning we can apply for permanent residency (ENS 186). We are not sure whether we need to apply on, after or before the expiry of the 457 visa. We need 2 year work experience with the same employer, this means we can only apply on 7 Oct, same day the visa expires... we are a bit confused Due to the fact that there is a hairs breathe between our two year requirement for PR and our 457 expiring can anyone tell us when would be the absolute latest we could apply? (e.g. the day of expiry, a week before it expires, ...). Any information is much appreciated Many thanks for your help
