    State Sponsorship Extended?

    Has anyone managed to get their state sponsorship period extended, i.e. the period from receiving the initial grant to having to have submitted your visa application reference number to the State. (4 months for VIC) Mainly concerned with VIC but would be interested to hear from others. Many Thanks!

    457 Visa extended to 6 years?

    Anyone any more info on this?
  3. Hello I am glad I found this forum and I have done a lot of reading lately! Me and my friend have been staying in Australia since 8/11/2010, and our working holiday Visa (WHV) is expiring on 7/11/2011. But, like many others I want to extend my stay for another three months, so I can do some travelling. I know that I can fly over to NZ and apply for an ETA online while over there. I just have a few questions in regards to that. Here are the questions. (1) Can we fly over to NZ before the visa expires, then apply for the Australia ETA visa while in NZ after our 417 WHV expired as we are planning to travel in NZ for 2 - 3 weeks, once our Australia ETA have granted, will there be any problems with the immigration in Australia after our WHV visa expires? (2) How long does it take to grant the Australia ETA visa? (3) Will I get refused to enter NZ as I can't prove I'll be able to get into Australia after our WHV already expires. Is it necessary to book a flexible flight ticket back to Australia before our visa expires? After I have gained entry to NZ then I can change the return flight to a later date? (4) I am from Hong Kong and I hold a British National Overseas (BNO) passport and Hong Kong Administrative Region (HKSAR) passport. As I used my British National Overseas (BNO) passport to apply the 417 WHV and enter Australia with that passport, I know I have to use the same passport when I leave Australia. But can I enter NZ using the Hong Kong Administrative Region (HKSAR) passport? Will the immigration officer in NZ allow me to do that? The reason I want to do that is I want to apply ETA online. If I use BNO, I can't do it online. (5) As my friend is a British citizen and he can apply it online as a evisitor instead of online ETA application. I would like to know the processing time of the evisitor visa? Is it the same as online ETA visa? Hope it all makes sense to u guys Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a nice day, Noche
  4. Hi Ladies and Gents, Is any esteemed Canberran or recent arrival able to give me an idea of decent options in terms of staying 3 to 4 weeks (prior to finding something on the rental market)? Arriving in August, which may offer lower rates (average under $100 a night would be a start!) :eek: Just be looking for a base. The research has begun, but any guidance or comments would be appreciated. Good luck to all aspiring applicants and recent arrivals!! Thank you.

  6. Hi, I am looking for some info regarding the de facto visa and extended stay visa. Here is an outline of my situation.. I came to Sydney on 10/09/09 on a WHV. I obtained a 6 month contract working in Sydney and moved into my unit on 03/10/09. It is here I met my now boyfriend...he became my boyfriend at the end of October. As my contract will soon be ending, we have been discussing what our options are and I intend to look for work and work wherever I can until my visa expires in order for me to be able to remain with my partner. Obviously come September we will still not have been together long enough to apply for a de facto visa and so my questions are: 1) What are the conditions for a further stay visa? I understand there is a 3 month tourist visa, or you can pay for a 6 or 12 month visa. What criteria do I need to meet for the 6 months? I am currently saving money earned in my current job and have money saved from before I came to Australia and so I am able to prove that I can support myself for 6 months and will not be working. I was just not sure if wanting to remain with my partner would be a sufficient enough reason, as usually I assume a tourist visa is given to you because you want to be a tourist and travel Australia. 2) In terms of proving our relationship when it comes to the de facto visa, how would it be viewed that we were living together before actually becoming a couple? My boyfriend rents the unit and then myself and another girl moved in. Therefore my rent payments go to him on a weekly basis by direct debit, but this does not show the point at which we became a couple. The only thing I can think of is to be added to the electricity bill of the unit and keep receipts of our weekly shopping etc, to show that we purchase items together and therefore live together as more than just housemates. Our first holiday together was 04/12/09, and we have one booked for March and another in June where he will come to meet my family in the UK. Although the June holiday is dependent on myself finding work, as if I find a long term role taking me to the end of my visa, I will obviously not turn that down. I am sure this sounds confusing and I am talking far in advance, but we want to plan ahead to ensure we can remain together. A UK WHV for him is our second choice option, but if I was able to stay here it would be the better option seeing as he has ties here in the form of property and a good job. I left the UK to travel and so family and friends are my only tie. Any advice you can give will be helpful. Thanks!
  7. First Home owners scheme to continue Updated: 19:49, Tuesday May 12, 2009 First home buyers have another six months to locate their dream dwelling and still benefit from the boost to the first home owners grant scheme. As part of last year's 10.4 billion dollar stimulus package the grant was lifted from seven thousand dollars to 14-thousand dollars for existing dwellings and to 21-thousand for new homes. Set to expire on June 30 it's been extended as is for another three months before being phased out after December 31. It'll be halved between October 1 and December 31 meaning first home buyers will receive a total of 10-thousand-500 dollars for established homes and 14-thousand for new homes. Treasurer Wayne Swan says the boost has already helped 59-thousand people achieve the great Australian dream. Data released this week shows first home buyers accounted for 27.3 per cent of all home loans approved in March.
  8. As you may have seen on the news, the First Home Owners Grant has been extended to the end of Septemeber: Remember, to qualiy, you need to be on a Perm Visa on day of putting in an offer on a property and never owned property in AU. In WA: Until 30th September 2009 Established Property = $14,000 New Build = $21,000 From 1st October - 31st December 2009 Established Property = $10,500 New Build = $14,000 I have found that the info given out by the government has confused my clients. Please check other states, I know you can get more in Victoria. Thanks:err:
