  1. Can anyone tell me when you applied Vetassess and when it was approved, please? It might give others an idea about the processing time..... You experience could help us a lot
  2. Anyone out there approved for citizenship and waiting on the ceremony? What area and how long have you been waiting?

  5. Hi can anyone help me....I have just received my letter from AHPRA to say I am eligible to register as a midwife it took just 7 weeks from when I posted the application and all the documents to them so very happy with that. I am now starting the 121 ENS PR visa application and keep seeing references to a 'skills assessment'. This is the first I have heard about that and I can't seem to really get any firm information about whether I need to do that or if the fact I have my letter from AHPRA will be enough to say my skills have been assessed?? The cost of a skills assessment on the ANMAC website is pretty high for something I feel I have gone through already. I would love to hear of other peoples experiences with this.

    Planning application approved :-)

    While were all going through the visa application process and worrying about everything thats involved , i had a little extra on my mind with regards to an extention on my house. Essentially i had some old delapidated out buildings to the rear of my property and they were on theire last legs , so they all came down at the begining of the year , new foundations laid and i rebuilt them in lovely timber frames , sort of a log cabin effect . Jeleous neighbour to the rear bubbled me ( tho i didnt think i was doing anything wrong as the buildings were already there) to the council and its been an obvious slog since then , Building control , planning , inspectors , architect, structural engineer , cost !! etc . I was possibly looking at demolishing the lot but looked on line this morn and APPROVED :biggrin::biggrin: Just regs to satisfy now and finish the buildings but atleast i can keep them . On another note they were supposed to be a garage and a summer house , not part of the house , nor would they be classed on the deeds as anything other than that , Because i was shopped to the councill , the inspectors said they were far to over engineered to be just " sheds " and they would havto be classed as Dwelings . this concerned me for obtaining full planning permission/.consent . My lovely , nosey, jeleous neighbours have essentially helped me in obtaining permission for a self contained 1 - 2 bed bungalow insted of a big car shed . Thanks v much :biggrin::biggrin: the £50k it will add to my propperty will be very usefull on my way to OZ . lee

    Visa's approved!!!

    Received the email this morning. 457 visa's took just 5 days! :eek:
  12. Hi All, I'm new on here but have been reading many forums from you guys and I must say thank you all so much for the info you give. I've learnt so much about moving to Oz. Myself my husband and my 3 children (18,15,and 13) would love to get the chance to move out to Perth. My husband is in the Building industry and has been offered a job with a sponsorship on a 457 visa. However our employer has never sponsored before so we are still waiting for his approval, which is taking so long ! It's 11 weeks now is this normal? It's driving us all mad because we're in complete limbo. We can't plan anything. We're not sure if it's our employer that's holding Immigration up or Immigration holding him up, I know that he said to us they're asking for an awful lot of info from him a lot more than he anticipated! What would be the reasons they wouldn't approve his business please? He is a small building company that hasn't employed many people before, he has mainly used sub contractors. But he wants to expand to a larger business with my husband who is a bricklayer by trade but has experience in project managing large projects. We have 2 dogs to consider and we were hoping to fly out before the changes to the quarrantine from 1st Jan. I have them booked in for December because I thought this process would be completed by now ! Just don't know what to do whether to cancel this booking in case he gets refused. My oldest daughter is 18 and needs to plan Uni if we don't go she needs to apply in the UK by Jan, and if she goes to Uni in Perth I think they start in Jan ! I managed to get my other 2 kids into school over in Perth too again they were suppose to start in Feb. Now I'm not sure whether any of this is going to happen! Arrrgghh Any way sorry to ramble on but any advice would be great. Thank you in advance
  13. Hi all, New to site and i love it! The info i get from it is brill! I received my approved visa start of this week and we (wife and two young kids) are over the moon! We wont be moving over until about Aug next year but i realy want to be on the ball with everything and start getting orginised now. What should i be thinking about or doing now, i dont want to be leaving it anywhere near the last minute. If anybody can advise and list somethings i can be getting on with i would really appreciate it. We are heading to WA and thinking around Joondalup area. I am a painter and decorator and my o/h is a personal trainer/sports massage. Kids are 2 1/2 and 2 months. I am sure there are many other families in the same position with experience or looking for help. Anyway thats enough for now, thanks.
  14. Hi All I got my state sponsorship on Sep 2009. at the time there was no need to have any kind of work experience so they approved it and i applied under 886 subclass. Like many others my case moved from Cat 5 to Cat 3 recently . Is my state sponsorship still valid ? my agent was advised by DIAC that a case officer has be allocated for my case but when i check online still the same status is on. Any comment is appreciated.

    WA SS approved in hours...!!!

    We submitted application on Sunday night after midnight and had the approval at 7am Monday morning... That's got to be some kind of record...??? :-))) I was expecting to wait about 4/5 weeks! So chuffed though! So does anyone know what happens next? Do we just sit tight and wait patiently? We signed and returned the SS agreement and they said they would forward form 1100 to DIAC, is this done electronically or by post? So excited now, just don't want anything to go wrong, I will be glad to get bumped up to cat 3 from 5! Thank you, Alison xxx
  16. Hi Guy's, We would appreciate a bit of clarification on the following as we're concerned and confused? My husband will hopefully get his Partner migration visa a week or so before we leave for Oz (end of Nov). Will the Australia transport and infrastructure give clearance for the car if he doesn't have the visa yet or can they issue it knowing its pending and should be with us shortly? We've sent them all the required information to get the clearance, but after contacting their head office in Canberra it seems we might not be entitled to clearance unless the visa has been granted or stamped? Does anyone have any ideas if you DO or DO NOT need the visa. Many Thanks Megan:wacko:

  20. Hello Everyone! I hope you are all well!! I really need some help or advise here pleeeeease..... I have now had my visa approved :jiggy:and will be emigrating to Sydney in September. I land in Sydney on Friday 9th of September and am struggling to decide what to do with regard to rental properties. I am looking for a 1 bed furnished apartment paying between 500 - 650 a week. Ideally what I would like to try and do is secure myself a rental place prior to my arrival for 3 or 6 months. Has anyone done this before that can offer any advise? I will be working near Wynyard and hope to find something in and around this area however anywhere will probably do as long as it is commutable! Thank you for taking the time to read my post and would relish any imput from you!!! THANK YOU! Wesley
  21. Hi there, Does anyone know roughly how long it takes for an employer to get approval from DIAC to sponsor someone at the moment? Thanks Nats
  22. Hi, As someone desperately waiting to hear about my vetassess (professional not trade so no practical to do) has anyone recently been approved for a professional occupation? If so when did you submit electronically and when did you your docs arrive? Trying to get an idea how much longer mine will be. Submitted online on the 7th Jan and docs received at VETASSESS on the 14th Jan. So it was 8 weeks Friday gone since they had everything. Anyone??!! Emma :arghh:
