  1. I would like to know how long we have to get organised and move out once we have our PR Visa..... I understand you need to apply for something called Return Residents Visa (RRV)? then apply for citizenship? but in terms of how long, what are the rules, how long to get out there, how long before applying for RRV, and how long before we can apply for citizenship? :huh:

  3. I am currently working hard to find employer sponsorship in WA. Let's get ahead of ourselves and imagine I am successful in finding a sponsor :jiggy: What timescales would I expect to face for the visa process? Would I still need my skills assessed, and if so would you recommend I have my skills assessed up front? Thanks everyone for any advice / support.

    How long will this all take???

    Hi, I am just sitting here on a warm Sunday afternoon thinking of a faraway land, namely Perth in Oz. We first started all of the proceedings back in January 09 when we appointed our agent. Since then my o/h has passed his AQF 111/TRA and the online Visa Application went in on the 23rd July. We are applying for an independant 175 Visa as o/h's job is on the Critical List as a Wall and Floor Tiler. I suppose the nooks and cranny of the question we want answering (as our agent will not commit themselves to even a guesstimate) is how long are things taking. We know they are looking at all sponship applications before the 175 but we just wanted a rough idea. ie, when should we expect a case officer is this taking 1 month or 5 months? When should we hear about medicals etc. I know it is really difficult to put a figure on these dates but I did not know if there was anyone else out there that had gone through the same sort of experience lately that could shed some light. We keep hearing that 175's are not even being looked at as there is such a backlog for the s/s etc that they are having to wade through these first. Should we just go straight for the s/s rather than wasting any time. We are hoping to go to Perth and are going on a reccie for 3 weeks at xmas. I know to some of you who have been going through the process for months and some of you even years this seems like a really daft question as we probably have a long way to go. This really was a silly thing for me to do even starting this process I am THE MOST impatient person to ever walk this earth and it is killing me already only 8 months into the process. We were hoping to be out there for next Feb but the way things are looking I cannot even see it being a year in Feb. I am sorry for going out but any info at all would be great just so we have some inclination of times etc and what to look forward to next. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to your responses. Mat (36), Clare (34) Maesie (8) and Keilen (3) and Buddy (the Cocker Spaniel who is 1) x:notworthy:
  6. I am a newly qualified adult nurse. I qualified in sept 08. I am under the impression that I have to be registered for a year before I can have my qualifications assessed by the ANMC and the same applies for registration to a state. So without these I dont think I can start the visa process. I want to apply for a 176 visa. As you can probably tell I cant wait to leave the Uk, ive had enough.
  7. Hi all, With the recent changes to processing times for the 175 visa, thought it may be usefull to look at how long it take for us nurses, as the dep of immigration web site originally stated that we would be priortised. Ill go first. Adult nurse working in ITU Skills sent 31/12/08 Skills back 19/2/2009 175 applied 3/3/09 House up for sale no co just waiting.............!!!!!!! :unsure:
