  1. Hi, new member here. My apologies if some of these questions have already been answered. Im filling out, day by day, our 309 Visa to return to Australia. My husband is an Australian Citizen by birth, I am British. I have some confusion as to who can fill out 888 forms. I thought it was only Australian permanent residents or Citizens. But I have been told that my family and friends in the UK can fill them out also. Is this correct? If it is not, what are the alternatives? And, I am in a bit of debt with my bank in Australia. This is due to the speed in which I had to leave the country as to not overstay. Do you have to pay your debt off completley or can you prove you are repaying it in manageable amounts in order to have your visa approved? Thank you in advance!!!
  2. Hello all, I’m new to the forum so hello to start! I’m moving to Perth in May this year with my girlfriend who’s from Perth. Ive lived there previously for two years on WHV’s. I’m a tiler by trade and want to bring my main tools with me. A manual tile cutter, a dewalt combi drill with two lithium ion battery’s, a dewalt laser level with one lithium ion battery and two spirit levels. All items are in separate secure boxes/cases. What I’m wondering is, does anyone have any experience of shipping simular items and what company’s did people use? I also have about 2 or 3 large suitcases and two push bikes I’d like to ship over. I’m not being lazy I have searched the forum looking for information on this. I heard through the grape vine you cant ship drill battery’s for some reason so any information regarding this would be great. Thanks so much in advance : )

    Offshore de facto visa help

    Hi all - I'm just after some advise regarding my de facto partner visa application. My partner and I already meet all the requirements for the visa and have got everything put together with no problems. However we had originally planned to lodge our application here in Australia but our situation may now change. I have potentially been offered a job back in the UK and ideally I would like to go back home to work and earn some good money for a while whilst the visa is being processed (work is very sporadic at the moment due to my WHV status which wont change whilst the process is happening). My partner will have to remain in Australia due to work commitments so we are now thinking that I will return to the UK and lodge the application offshore. Will our separation cause any issues for my visa or is my returning home to work whilst the visa is processed an ok reason for living apart temporarily? Also what kind of declarations/ evidence may we now need to include in the apllication regarding this? Thanks in advance for your help! Bel
  5. I am a British registered nurse planning to apply for the subclass 190 visa permanent residence visa. I am registered with AHPRA and will have 60 points if I get state nomination. I have a few questions. Could someone help? 1. Can I apply myself or do I need to apply through a migration agent. Is it difficult to do by myself? 2. Should I get ANMAC (special) assessment first and then state nomination before I apply for EOI or am I supposed to apply for state nomination and EOI together. 3. What is the time frame to apply once invited for application. I need to know as I work full time in case I apply myself I need to plan the time. 4. Is form 1276 the identical to the online application form e-visa form 1393? And am I supposed to submit health and character documents along with the e-visa application. 5. There is any e-book,guide or book which could help in applying for the visa?
  6. Hi all, My husband and I moved to Sydney bit more than two months ago from London and it is time to say hello to the World down under! We are still discovering Sydney and our minds have been focused on my husband's job, finding&dressing our place (which we are still doing!) and trying to understand this city, but it is time to start enjoying Sydney and what Oz can offer, so we would like to meet people! plus I'd like some advise re jobs too! - We moved to Sydney because of my husband's job. We live in Neutral Bay and would be great to make new friends. Plus any advise on how to get on in Sydney would be fantastic! Jamie, my husband, works office hrs in the city and I'm free all day really. We like going outdoors walking, going to the beach, staying in, Jamie likes mountain-biking and I love all about art. Really easygoing, so if any of you would like to meet up let us know! Or if there is any other ladies around who wanna meet up just message me I get so bored being at home, which takes me to my other wonder:work. I work in Broadcasting/TV/film and my last job in London was with a worldwide broadcaster, but the kind of job I used to do there is mainly done in Asia and I am not familiar with the Media industry here; so I'm open to work in temp jobs until I find a job in my career. Do any of you know of websites or if any of you work in Media.. Any good agencies to check or good companies to work for? I like working and being around people, plus extra earnings are always welcome... Help!? Feel free to say hi!

  9. Can anyone tell me, when you get your visa granted ( eventually! ), do the whole family have to travel to Oz to validate or is it just the main visa applicant? Obviously with a house to sell we may need to validate before that happens and although we are still waiting for CO and visa we are trying to get a little bit organised and have a fall back plan!!

  11. Hi I need some advise on whether my mums medical condition of 20 years will affect her chances of gaining residency in Oz. Once we are there all of her offspring will be in Oz with my brother sponsoring her on a Contributory Parent Visa (subclass 864), as he is a citizen of 3 years. She has a blood disorder (high platelet count) which is managed with regular blood tests and medication and has been fine since diagnosis. Is there any PIO's out there who can advise if they've gone down this road or someone who can help with an insight into "if" the medical condition may or may not be acceptable? Thank You Karen

  15. Hello My husband and I and our 3 year old daughter are moving from the UK to my native Australia in January. We are unsure whether to take everything or if it will be more cost effective to just take our clothes and some of our most treasured possessions and re-buy the rest in Australia. Also, if you are someone who did take everything, are there some things you now wish you didn't bring because they proved costly to ship or unnecessary in Australia. Looking forward to your thoughts! Thanks.

    Need advise for BVB! :S

    Hi, I'm just looking for a bit of advice from anyone who knows anything about the Bridging Visa B. I am currently on a Bridging Visa A whilst the Sydney office are processing my application for a De-facto Visa. I have been with my partner for 18 months and the De-facto visa application was submitted in April 2011, I have contacted the office recently to find out the processing time. They told me as they are 12 months behind it could take until April 2012 :arghh: In July 2011 I obtained a BVB to return home to the U.K for my brothers engagement, I had no problems with this and simply filled in the 1006 application and was granted the visa. However I am now wanting to return home again for the Christmas period and was wondering if it would be difficult to obtain another BVB? My sister has recently had a baby and got quite ill afterwards, although she is now on the mend my family are wanting a family Christmas all together and I want to go and meet my new neice in person:cute: Would this be classed as a valid reason? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  20. We have been assigned a case officer but she is asking for my OH's son to be sent for a medical even though he is over 18 years old and not emigrating with us. Has anyone else heard of this? My OH is divorced from his children's mother and this could prove difficult if they insist on a medical being done for him. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks.

  23. Hi my CO says "All required internal checks have been initiated, however the timing for the completion of these checks varies from one case to another depending on individual circumstances. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide you with a definitive timeframe for finalisation of your application as cases take many months to finalise." Does this mean that my security checks also started and my form 80 been sent to ASIO for international checks ? What are internal checks ? Regards
