  1. Hey we are applying for visa with nsw state sponsorship. All got lodged today so just a waiting game now as to whether visa gets granted. Do we actually legally have to live and work in nsw?? Husband is a bricklayer and we aren't sure if there is enough work in that state. Also we preferred the temp and look of Brisbane?? Any one got in on a state sponsorship but didn't stay in the State?? I know it's only a moral obligation
  2. Hi there. I am a newbie here. I found this forum to be very helpful. Reading through this tread... http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/migration-issues/78714-176-visa-obligations-unemployment.html I was able to understand that not being able to fulfill the obligation to live in the sponsoring state for 2 years does not have any legal implications. Here is my dilemma... My family and I have been an Australian PR since Nov 2009. However, I have been working in the Middle East and have not relocated to Australia yet. My visa category is Visa 176 with South Australia State Sponsorship. I thought that it'll be a better idea to secure a job offer prior our arrival. But when we learned that my wife is pregnant for our 2nd child, we had to plan much faster because we want to be there months before she gives birth. After months of searching for a job, finally, I was able to get 2 job offers. One is in Adelaide and one is in Melbourne. The job offer in Adelaide I would say is attractive and acceptable. On the other hand, the offer in Melbourne offers a better salary package that also comes with a relocation package. The company in Melbourne is also a global organization so this is something that is difficult to say NO to. I am now considering choosing the job offer in Melbourne over Adelaide. Aside from the better job offer, we've got friends in Melbourne who has offered their assistance to look after my first child by the time my wife gives birth. Their assistance would be very helpful because we've got no relatives in Australia. Here are my questions. 1. I know that I am not legally required to live in Adelaide. My migration agent said that I still have a choice and since I don't intend to live there anyway, I might as well not contact the South Australia government. What can you say about this approach? What implication will this approach make in the near future? 2. Will I encounter any issues with Victoria when we apply for Centrelink, Medicare etc..? 3. Will this be an issue if we apply for citizenship? 4. Will this be an issue if we apply for visas for our relatives if they would have to come visit us for short period of time? I am also considering consulting another migration agent regarding this matter but I thought that maybe some of you guys here can provide some answers too. TIA
  3. Persons without visa's and the high horse brigade please comment constructively, i can't be doing with the old moral obligation flannel;your taking a visa from some one that wanted that state blah blah blah! Its not my intention to offend anyone I'm just seeking fact not fiction! Does anyone know anyone that has actually flown to their sponsored state, visited the zoo and flown where ever you fancied and there not been any come back? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. There seems to be a lot of talk recently about who's responsibility it is to give our kids the correct values, compassion and morality that 'should' be integral in us all, in order for us all to live harmoniously in this society. I hate to say this, Whilst schools, peers, youth clubs, etc, ALL have a part to play in forming our younger generations morality, at the end of the day it is the responsibility of us, the PARENTS. Easy statement to make I know, but true nonetheless. Please don't get me wrong, there are genuine, very genuine case out there where children have had a truly god awful start to life. Where their upbringing for many reasons fell apart. Parents divorce, parents die, drugs, booze, the list is endless, but in all honesty I'm truly not sure that ENOUGH parents take their responsibility to their children with the seriousness that should be inherent. Too many parents are prepared to say, 'Oh well, do what you want'. 'Go and entertain yourself, leave me alone'. And in a LOT of cases 'some' parents have lost the ability to say, 'NO', you are not going to do this or that. The word NO is not a bad word, it is a word that can carry with it a lifetime of lessons and teachings. Don't get me wrong, I am sounding like an ogre, but the ability to say NO at times will pay dividends in the end. The ability to raise a child and make sure it can interact with the general population in a compassionate and understanding way, it is a very heavy burden to carry. If as a parent you are not prepared for this responsibility then I would suggest you don't have kids. Jesus, I am so far from being perfect that it is unbelievable. I have made many mistakes whilst bringing up my two kids, too many to list, BUT. I have always done my best to ensure my kids have the ability to be kind, respectful and understanding of people. I am not admonishing kids of all the blame, some of the behaviour we see at times, lets face it will never change, there are some brilliant parents out there who despite their very best efforts the kids will go off the rails and act reprehensibly, BUT. In the main I would have to say that at the end of the day it is the parents who the children should learn from in the first instance. At times I want to give up and say, 'Jesus, what lessons are you sending out to your kids', and I hate to say this but I often think, 'You should never have been allowed to have kids'.:mad: But at the end of the day, the parents have to take first responsibility. We have to some extent become the 'blameless' society, where some believe it is everybody's else responsibility to pick up after us and wipe our backsides, when it comes to parenting this is not an excuse, sorry, thats just the way I feel. Guess what I am trying to say is this. There are enough parents out there who are for all intents and purposes living a 'normal' life, no great pressures or difficulty in their own lives, but still couldn't care less how their kids are bought up and behave. Cheers Tony:wink:
  5. Hi people, Myself and my partner recently applied for a visa as we want to live and work in Victoria. 2 days prior to our interview with the embassy my partners and I skills were taken off the list, Now the only place we can get is the Northern Territories. We don't have enough points for a 175 and after researching the Northern Territories I really don't think its for us. We are both in our 20's and we want the city life. Am I right in thinking that if we accept the 176 state sponsored visa to the territories we are under no legal obligation to stay there. We are willing to try it but dont want to stay somewhere we are not going to be happy.Is it really that simple that its only a moral obligation and that after literally validating our visa we can get on another flight to where we want to be? If this is the case can we start looking for jobs in the victoria area even though we dont have a visa for there??? Or do we need to get out there first, move then look for a job? Any advice would be great as I can't ask the visa dept these questions. thanks James & liz

    moral support needed

    Hi everyone Not had the best of weekends, trying to get house ready to sell when my 18 year old son thought he shoud tell me how selfish i was being going to Australia and taking my younger sons away when they clearly didn't want to. (they say they do as long as they can go to the school with the football academy attached and have a swimming pool in the garden) Apparently I am only living my life to suit myself and not caring about anyone else or how they feel and that his dad is only going to Australia because I bullied him into it. (OH bemused as it was his idea) I tried to explain that we had talked about this for a few years and that the time was right and we feel that there are better opportunities for them over there. We are getting him a visa all we ask is he comes to validate and after that if he wishes will get him a return flight at least he can return if he wants to having a visa in hand. I understand he may be scared at the thought of us leaving but was not expecting the crap that I was accused of and feel quite shell shocked. This all started because we were decorating bathroom and he had to go to sister in laws 2 mins away to get shower. Anyway even if no one reads this feel a bit better writing it down Kaye
