  2. Hi, i am new to this but could really really urgently need advise.....were do i start....ok....i was offered my ideal job in Syd in sept, we flew into Oz to finalise the offer etc but we were stopped at the border and questioned for hours on end and finally had our holiday visas cancelled as they considered us to be non tourists, we flew home. In the meantime the application started for the 457 visa....everything went well, sponsor approved, nomination approved, then our visa process started...its been a nightmare from start to finish, we done it all ourselves and provided everything under the sun we could provide.....evidance from 5 years of us being a couple living together etc....then we were told to provide a statement to waive an exclusion period, we were unaware we even had an exclusion period but apparently as our visas were cancelled at the border we automatically got a ban....so we provided compassionate and compelling reasons why it should be waived and a letter from my employer saying how much he needs me there....got an email back this morning saying my visa is approved but unfortunatly my partner did not meet the critera to have the exclusion period waived!!! What the hell!!!! Then they asked if i wanted to continue with my side and come and work etc i should let them know and they will withdraw my partner from the application.....how could this happen? How could i leave my fiance behind...and is there anything we can do?:sad: Any help would be greatly appreciated folks please im very confused.

  4. Hey i was wondering if anyone could give me advice! Im 33 and my husband is 34 and we really want to move to oz to make a better life for our 3 kids who are 13, 9 and 5. The problem is we live in northern ireland an we have both been out of wrk for over a year, as there is such a shortage of work here at the moment (another reason why we want to move) the job prospects for us in ustrailia would be great. The visa we can apply for is the sponsered working visa, but what i want to no is what are my chances of getting one even though we are out of work? And how do i go about getting sponsered? Can anyone help!!!!!!!!!

  8. Hi all I have been living in Australia for over 5 years. After a long batte with migration I finally got my permanent visa in 2009. I would like to apply for Australian citizenship now, I see myself living here long term, however, I will move back to Switzerland for one year or longer, from 2012 onwards. Family issues affected this decision. I just moved up to Darwin, I used to live in Sydney. I have ordered my book now for the test. How long will it take from lodging the application to becoming a citizen and getting a passport? The faster the better as I would like to move back in January.... Is that possible? I heard the process can take longer than 6 months? My permanent visa will run out in 2014. What if I just move back and come back before it runs out, without becoming a citizen? Are there any risks? Thank you for your help, much appreicated :-) And yes, I am not from England, but I love this forum :biggrin: Cheers, Karin

    Need help ASAP

    Can anyone out there please tell me if my fiance MUST hold an australian passport for a PM Visa? Just finalising the application and getting all remaining docs together and as of yet he doesn't actually have a passport (he's never had any need to). They ask in Q52 for his passport info but on the check list say he has to provide either a certified copy of passport OR birth cert. We were planning on getting his passport once we have the wedding paid for. He has his birth cert which obviously proves he is australian by birth so will that do or will we have to get that as well???:frown: Also a quick query re meds. Can i have my medical done before i submit my application, or am i best waiting til I have submitted it then have my med booked for a couple of days after??? Any info anyone can give if much appreciated :hug:
  12. Hi I have a job offer in Sydney and my new employer is going to be sponsoring me for 4 years. The VISA was lodged 3 weeks, but I aint heard anything yet... my employers told me it would take about 2-3 weeks to be processed. Im really worried cos I have handed in my notice and my last day at work is Friday. I had to hand in my notice as my new employer wants me to start working ASAP. Can anyone else tell me how long they have had to wait for sponsorship? Also who is the best airline to fly with (i aint even booked my flights as I dont have my VISA!)

  14. Hello, I am completing the AASW form with regards to emmigrating to Australia, and have a few questions that I would like clarifying. 1) Question 15 asks for qualifications. I completed a GNVQ BTEC Advanced Health and Social care in 1995-97. I have put for this not be assessed, if it was to be assessed what documents would I have to provide? I only have the units I took (18 units) and if I paased each one (whichI did). It also asks for details of field work placements during the above course. I know that I did undertake a placement at a children's nursery but I was not assessed on this placement. I cannot remember where it was or any details about this placement/supervisor/s. What would you advise I put in this section (Q.15A)? 2) My second qualification is BA (Hons) Social Work. - Do I have to give the exact topic/title of my thesis? I have moved and all my Uni stuff is in boxes, am I able to write that it was about Female perpetrators of Domestic Violence and support services available to men. - I do not know what qualifications my practice supervisors within my 3 University placements had, how should i answer this question. - When describing the field work I undertook in the placements, is it enough to write what the services aims were, and what the service offered to clients. Please advise me if this section requires further information. 3) With regard to work history, how much am I expected to write? A paragraph summarising my role or a list of my duties? I work within Child Protection at present, so this could be quite extensive. Thanks In Advance, Aymie

    I want to go to oz asap

    Hi all My name is Lisa I am new to this forum and I am trying to get myself and my family to oz. I am currently working as a full time senior care officer at a residential home for young adults with epilepsy, autism, learning disabilities and other neurological disorders and have done so for 3 years. Looking on the internet I have found some employers in Perth in this industry who I am hoping to approach for a sponsor. I am thinking about going over in May for 2 weeks on a holiday visa and put some feelers out there. The reason being that I am totally impatient, I want to go yesterday. Can anyone advise me on the quickest route/visa, a temp visa would do as I could always apply for perm at a later date. My friends went to Rockingham over a year ago on a temp visa and they have just got perm residency. Do you guys think it is worth me spending the money going in May? would companies be willing to speak to me whilst I am there? Thanks guys Look forward to hearing your replies Lisa Impatient Brit
  17. Hey all, I’m new to POMSinOZ so please bear with me. I am a midwife who has been qualified for almost 18months and my boyfriend is a math’s teacher at a secondary school. We are looking to make a quick escape from Scotland to OZ in the summer. Despite neither of us having ever been to Australia we have been drawn to Queensland and in particular the Brisbane/Gold Coast areas. I am looking for some advice from other midwives working in these areas (or indeed any areas of Australia) on the hospitals and the general midwifery practice. I am keen to work in the public sector where I hope to maintain my autonomy as a practitioner. ANY INFO/CONTACTS would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Nat

  19. Hi, Please can anyone offer some advice. Hubby just offered a 457 visa but we have submitted a 175 for SS. If we take to 457 can we still apply for SS visa even though SA is the sponsor and WA is where the job offer is? How long to process onshore? Will we need to change the application. Sorry about bombarding you with questions it is just they need an answer ASAP. So excited about the job offer but warey as it is not a permanent residencey option. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
