    Length of time to active visa once granted

    I'm sure this has been answered before but I can't seem to find anything on here or the immigration website. Once we have (hopefully) been granted our visa, what time period do we have to get offer there and activate it? I've read somewhere (but can't find it) that it is do with the medicals / police checks. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Dale
  2. Hi, I don't quite like the way it's stated: Required X years' job experience in a nominated occupation or related one. My boyfriend has 3 years' experience in Software Testing (at this time he was doing his BA at IT) + 3 years Software Development. Altogether over 6 years full-time. He has ACS assessment as Developer Programmer. The question is - can these periods be combined to get 10 points for >5 years job experience ? I suppose many IT guys may have such situation, as they often started as Testers. Any ideas?
  3. Hi All, I applied for an ACPO Police Certificate for a 457 visa application. The certificate expired 29th March 2010. We're now on our second 457, living in Oz, and looking to apply for PR. I seem to remember the certificates are only valid for 12 months from the date of issue but I'm not sure where I read that. Does anyone know how long they are valid for? More importantly, is there an easy way to renew one or do you have to go through the process from scratch? We have been living in Australia for just over 12 months now. If you have to start from scratch, how do you go about getting a new certificate/renewing one from Oz if you can't prove UK address for the last six months or do we not need one if we've been living in Oz for the last year and are now applying for PR? Many thanks, Rob
  4. Hi guys. Can anyone who has been through the process advise the following. Moving to Perth and will be looking to secure a long term rental hopefully in Joondalup Area or surrounding suburbs. In your experience how quickly can a long term rental be secured. I sort of need this one answered so I know how much short term furnished accommodation i need to book:biggrin: Thanks for any advice or guidance offered:wink:
  5. Hey all I realise that the huge volume of applications is part of the reason for the long waiting period for spousal visas. But what happens during the waiting process when the application is pretty much approved by the CO and the months before waiting for the actual grant of the visa?
  6. Hi, My partner is the main name on the 457 visa. I have had to return to Ireland due to family matters.. Ive been here 6 weeks so far and am wondering is there any restrictions as to the length of time i can stay? I know that you can leave and enter Australia as many times as you please, but i dont know how long for? My visa expires 2013. Any help would be great. Thanks J

    Length of work experience?

    How long work experiences do I have to prove. Is it at least 6 years as it is mentioned on TRA pages or „for at least 12 of the 24 months immediately before lodging your visa application” as it is on immi.gov website?
  8. Hi, i've just joined this site as I am starting the process of applying for a Prospective Marriage visa to marry my Australian girlfriend towards the end of this year. We are looking to travel back to Oz within the next 5-6mths (or as soon as the Visa is granted etc). My only minor concern is that we only met Aug/Sept 2008, albeit we fell for each other straight away, and I was wondering if due to the short term of the relationship if it may hold against us when the application is submitted??? Despite this we do have a lot of supporting evidence i.e. we've being on holidays, day trips, social events as a couple on many occasions (with photographic evidence for all the mentioned), we are also now living together with many bills in both our names and we set up a joint bank account a month ago. Has anyone any experience of this situation or could give any pointers as to if the relationship length may be called into question? Many thanks in advance for any advice given!
  9. Hi all If I get a 475 visa, how long do I have to live in the state before I can consider moving to another state. So far, I've been given two answers: 2 years and 4 years. Both more than twice and all from migration agencies. I really hope someone can help me by giving me a definitive answer, or even better qive me the URL of a DIAC page that clarifies the situation. Many thanks Mr A Confused
  10. :?: HELP! What is TRA? and we are at the beginning of the visa and medical application process and wondered how long it is possibly going to take as we need to put our house on the market but fear we may sell too early or too late. Also, i'm a nurse and understand i have to have a skills assessment by the anmc but have also read you have to do the same agian within the state/territory that you apply for a job - is this true? We are applying for the independent migrant visa, both our jobs are on the demand list and i currently have enough points however, my husband is ten points short - can he apply as my spouse on my application? Sorry for all the questions but I am a little confused despite regular surfing of numerous websites.

    length of time for visa?

    Hi, Im married to a new zealander and i was wondering how quickly anyone in this situation had managed to get the correct visa to reside in oz permantely. I qualified for a new zealand permit, and it took about 5 months, that expired a year ago, and we have now decided to look at Brisbane instead of Auckland. Typical more money to that doctor at Gatwick! best wishes Jayne
