  1. Hello, I hope you can help us. I am an Aussie citizen (however originally from UK) and I met my partner while in Europe last November. My partner is Dutch and we intend to apply for the subclass 300 fiance visa (prospective marriage visa). I live in Brisbane and she lives in the Netherlands. However I have a few questions which I hope others who have been through a similar experience can help us with. 1. We met for the first time in November 2011, and have only been together physically 5 days (in November). However We are totally committed to each other and are no spring chickens (I am 57, she is 50) so we both know what we want in a life partner, and marriage is a clear best option. Since we met we have been in multiple daily contact via email, Skype, phone. However will the short period of time we have physically been together count against us? 2. When would be the earliest time at which we could reasonably apply for the fiance visa? Would 3 months from date of first meeting be sufficient to convince the authorities that it is a committed relationship? 3. My partner has two daughters from a previous marriage, one 16 and one 18. The 16 year old lives with her and is still at school, but the 18 year old lives away from home at University in Scotland. However as a student she is still financially dependent on her mother. Would both the girls be able to come in under their mother's prospective partner visa? 4. Because of the added complexity of dependents, would it be best to use a migration agent? 5. Finally, does anyone know the approximate time scales? Ideally my partner and daughters would like to be in Australia by January 2013, in time for the start of the school year. Is this feasible? Thanks in advance for any advice and info.
  2. As there are a lot of threads about the UK economy and if it is or is not in trouble, these threads always seem to lead to arguments about the Australian economy. So here is a thread about the Australian economy to stop the other threads being dragged off course ...... Is Australia suffering from Dutch Disease...... Personally I think it is, and for those who do not know what Dutch disease is there is a link to explain.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_disease basically are we being kept afloat by the mining industries while the manufacturing side is failing...???? I feel this describes the Australian economy perfectly. Of course that is just my opinion and I could be wrong.
  3. Me and my girlfriend are in the early stages of emigrating. We decided to emigrate August last year on my gilfriends occupation "social worker". We have never been to Australia, but we are interested in the great climate, people and adventure. We don't see it as heaven or an escape from Holland. We do know it's a very big adventure because we haven't been there. But we'll see She has 5 months work experience and at 1-1-2012 she exactly has one year work experience which is enough for the SS of South Australia and a 176 visa. The plan: 30th of july - Ielts test (the week before she takes an intensive 30 hour training). She has to pass every band with at least a 7 on academic level. September 2011 - skill assessment through AASW for social worker. Ielts test general - every band an 8 at general level. This s needed to meet the 65 points. 1-1-2012 we hope to apply for the SS of SA. 1-3-2012 we hope to be able to apply for a 176. And somewhere at the end of 2012 we'd like to move over. I know that we made this timeline but that it is veeerrry doubtful you actually fullfil it like that, but we'll see.
  4. Hi all. I'm in the middle of getting my police certificates sorted. Having been a bit if a Gypsy over the years and I lived in Holland for a while. I've been on the Dutch Ministry of Justice website and even read the english translation of how to go about getting a Certificate of Good Behaviour but i'm struggling to find where to down load it and still further how to go about getting it legalised any one had to do it ??? Any advice appreciated :-)
  5. Dear All, I'm in the middle of attaching all of my documents for my 176 e visa application. My comfirmation e mail from DIAC asks for form 80 amongst other things. Now my problem is I spent nearly two years living in the Netherlands from 2002 and I went to the trouble of applying for a Residency Permit. Of course its all in Dutch. Some of the Papers have English already on them but the actual entry into Amsterdam register and my Social Security letter is in Dutch. Does anyone know of a NAATI certified Dutch Translator ?? I'm currently living in cardiff. Any Dutch nationals here have been through the same process ?? Do I need to get this translated. The actual permit has a few english words in it too. Just one more nighmare to deal with :-)
