The Pom Queen posted a topic in Visa ChatFrom 1 December 2011, the Australian High Commission in Islamabad, Pakistan will process all new family based migration applications for applicants from Pakistan and Afghanistan. According to the announcement, made by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC), all new partner, child and family visa applications lodged by those who live in Pakistan or Afghanistan (except for applications made by Afghan nationals) will be processed by the Australian High Commission in Islamabad, Pakistan. Afghan nationals who live in Afghanistan or Pakistan should continue to lodge these visa applications with the Australian Consulate-General in Dubai, United Arab Emirates where the applications will continue to be processed in Dubai. For those who lodged their visa application before December 1, 2011, they will continue to have their application processed by the Australian Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand until further notice. If applicants' cases are transferred to the Islamabad office, they will be informed by their new case officer in that office. Permanent visa subclasses affected by the change are as follows: Child (Permanent) (subclass 101) visa Adoption (Permanent) (subclass 102) visa Aged Dependent Relative (subclass 114) visa Remaining Relative (subclass 115) visa Carer (subclass 116) visa Orphan Relative (subclass 117) visa Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa Partner (Temporary and Permanent) (subclass 309 and 100) visas Dependent Child (subclass 445) visa
Just thought i'd mention it,top drawer docu last nite on the royal anglian regmnt in afghan,troops wore cameras for the footage for this docu,a "bit" like being there but obviously without the danger! Young kids on their first tour,chaos in combat,tragedy with the death of a young squaddie and his familys reaction,and the squaddies honest opinion on the wars they've been involved in,one of the officers said pretty much the same as i'd been thinking,he said "in Iraq i thought we were part of the problem,HERE(Afghan)i think were doing some good",i dont for one minute think "the allies" are in Afghan for the sake of the Afghan people,BUT if a side effect of them being there is that women and kids are now getting educated/have more freedom etc then thats a good thing to me,easy for me to say i know,ive no family/kids over there in the services,but the lads on the ground over there all seemed to be convinced they were doing a worthwhile job and took a pride in it,anyway....besides your views on the rights and wrongs of us being there its well worth a watch,think next weeks is 9PM tues on BBC3,or Iplayer should have repeats of last nite
