    18th of March?

    I have been seeing "18th of March email" and not sure about this. Can someone please enlighten me on the details of this email/mail? I did not receive anything from DIAC if I should have received one. Thanks.
  2. Hi everybody, I applied for a family sponshored visa on Feb 3,2011 and received on March 18th the famous letter, stating that within three months our case will be allocated to a CO, but I am still waiting!!! Does anyone who received this letter have a CO asigned? Best regards!
  3. Hi all, Has anyone else received a letter on March 18th or 21st from DIAC? It was the one that the allocation dates update mentions as a special note on 8th June update. I am applying for 175 as an electrician. The detail issued on 8th June update backed up the letters sent in March to specific Priority 3 applications and told them to get medicals etc done. They said that they anticipated that a C/O would be allocated within 3 months of the letter date, which for me is now over 3 1/2 months ago. I am hoping that with the Priority Group changes on July 1st that this is still the case. Has anyone else had the letter sent in March and have you got a C/O yet? Regards, Mick.
  4. Afternoon all My partner and myself (27) have been out in Perth for a couple of months sorting ourselves with jobs and accommodation etc but now it'd be good to grow the social scene. I know there was a social organised by Poms in Perth last weekend which we weren't able to go to so we wondered if there were people interested in an informal meet up on Saturday 18th June. The pub the Lucky Shag by the water front in town is nice and central. We'll be down there for some drinks and maybe a bite from around 2pm and any one who fancies joining us would be welcome.
  5. Dear If you are 18th March 2011 mail receiver then according to DIAC you will get a CO within 20 Days ( Last date 18 th June 2011) . And I am still waiting for CO What about you ?
  6. We received an email back in 18th March saying that we would get a CO in 3 months but have still not heard anything. The 3 month period is not up until mid June but am just wondering if anyone else is in a similar position? Am I right in assuming that we will be contacted by email when we get a CO?
  7. Well, my eldest has reached the grand old age of eighteen today, the key to the door, and all that malarky. I bought her a backpack and said 'See Ya', but she is still here organizing a party for tomorrow,:mad::biglaugh:. What if anything did you do on your eighteenth birthday (or for the real oldies 21st birthday), was it a day to remember, one to forget, did you refuse to get out of bed because it was the dawning of 'responsibility' and the crap that you are about to face as a so called adult, did you get raving drunk and can't remember a thing, would love to hear about it, of course if like me it was so many years ago that maybe we are struggling to remember,:no:. I remember vividly my eighteenth birthday. It was coming to the end of my fathers contract in Perth and slowly it dawned that we would have to return to the UK, to say I was like a bear with a soar head would be an understatement. I went to work as normal, got ripped into for hours about coming of age, the fellas then strung me up on a hoist, pulled me up into the air less my trousers, and called the rest of the office staff to come and have a laugh. This was followed by a quick drink after work, then a quick fishing trip to South Mole, Fremantle. Dad came and picked me up and had a great evening laughing and joking with my parents and younger brother, good days indeed. One week later there was I sitting on a 747 on the way back to blighty,:cry::cry:. But at least it was memorable and a memory I hold dear to this day. Cheers Tony.:wink:

    the 18th march emails

    Hi, We were one of what seemed to be many people that received a mail to say we should have a c/o within 3 months and to go ahead and do p/c's and meds. We just wondered if anyone who got the same mail has got a c/o yet. I suppose i am hoping lots of you will reply yes so that i know things are close but i'm dreading hearing too many no's. thanks

  12. My husband and I are moving to Melbourne in may 2011. We went out for a visit in November 2010 to have a look at some areas we would like to move to. We really loved Bayside, especially Hampton, Brighton and Sandringham. We were thinking of booking a short term serviced apartment for about a month then hopefully move into a rental after that. Has any one done this before? Is one month enough time to find a rental? I'm a pharmacist and will be working in Pranham, my husband is in IT so will probably be working in the CBD, so if anyone has any advice on accommodation that would be greatly appreciated. We are in our early 30's and don't know many people out there so if any of you are moving out at the same time, get in touch.

  14. Hello, I wonder if anyone can help me? I am here on a 457 with wife and two kids. My 457 doesn't expire until May 2013, however we are considering applying for permanent residence before that date. My son will be 18 next August and I was wondering if it would be easier to apply for permanence before he reaches 18. I have read that over 18s (even if dependent) have to apply separately. He is in full time education now but plans to take a gap year before going to Uni. Does this means he may not be considered as being in FT education if we applied during that time? Any information would be really useful. Thanks
  15. As per the title, according to the website the new arrangements for state sponsorship will be in place after October 18th. Don't know if anyone else has seen this? Are we about to hear the news we are all waiting for? Eligibility Lists - Live in Victoria

    ACT Motorbike ride 18th Oct

    I have been looking to join a bike club but as I don't really know anyone over here who rides a bike, however I saw tonight that Taff has a SV650 (the old bike I used to have in the UK and a great bike!). So I thought I would just throw it out there and find out if anyone else out there has a bike and would like to go for a ride on Sunday (the forcast looks good). Even if your not able to make it on Sunday then lets just see who has a bike.

  24. Hi all, I just wanted to say hi and how much this site has helped in organising my and my boyfriends move to Melbourne in less than a month!! I was offered a 12 month position just before Christmas at Monash University so frantically tried to get everything together to apply for a 457 visa with my boyfriend travelling as my spouse. We're both 29 in Feb and have no kids so thought this was too good an opportunity to miss! I got loads of great advice from here and we got our visa in no time - about a week from date of submission! Its for 12 months initially but we'll see how it goes! We're leaving on the 17th so arriving in Melbourne on 18th Feb. Very excited now! Just got to figure out how on earth i wil manage to get enough stuff in a 20kg suitcase - any tips welcome!! We do know a couple of people but are always happy to meet more so if you're in Melbourne esp around the Clayton area get in touch! Bec x :jiggy:
  25. Hi I have done all the paperwork and everything myself and sometimes I feel a bit lost as to what is going on. We have sent everything and our medicals arrived on 18th September LCU in Sydney. From what I have read on hear, it will probably be another few weeks until they get to processing our medicals, but what I want to know is......what happens next? Will the process our medical and let us know it has been done? Or do they just pass it on to your case officer and they get back to you when they have made their decision? :unsure: I am keeping everything crossed to at least hear before Christmas. :skeptical: Good luck to everyone else and congratulations to those who have already heard positive news.:cool: Thank you in advance for the help.
