Hi, I'm really confused by all the different types of Visa. Could someone help me please? I'm currently a student social worker - qualifying in July next year. If I apply now for a visa I doubt I'd get a permanent one?? If I hang around and wait til next year when I'm qualified, it may take me another 18 months to get through the whole visa application thing?? What should I do - anybody any ideas? Please Jazza xx:huh:
I am on the computer at 8.30 on a friday morning. That can only mean one thing (well 2, the first goes without saying, yes i am addicted)........I had my last day at work yesterday!! Yeeeeha. I will no longer have to work to pay Gordon Brown. No more shall i have to battle with the M1 traffic into Leeds. I have retired. Sorry to all who still work, don't mean to be smug with you guys, I did all that yesterday. mmwwaahaha. Just had to share. It is for me the best thing so far about moving.
I guess many of you will know this already, but DIMIA have an e-mail reply service giving the status of their visa application backlog. Just send an empty e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and you'll receive a reply telling you which visa applications (by date of initial application) they are currently processing. I found this very useful before I was assigned a case officer, because replies to my queries about my visa application were rarely answered. In the end my application for a Skilled, Australian Sponsored visa took over 7 months before I was even assigned a case officer - considerably longer than the 4-5 months mentioned in the inital letter acknowledging receipt of my application. My application is still going through, and the whole process will have taken about 10 months to complete. John Wheeler.
