    Is it enough.

    Hi. I am wondering if anyone can give me some advice. My partner and I are applying for a defo relationship visa. we have been together since July 2010, so almost 2 1/2 years. We met over 5 years ago in Europe whilst she was travelling. We kept iin contact and got together as a couple when I came to Australia on a working holiday visa in 2010. we lived together for 3 months then in Australia.. So couldn't apply for a visa for me to stay as it wasnt long enough. So I returned home and we decided once she finished university she would come to the UK to live. I visited her many time when we apart. And in January 2012 she came to the UK. We lived together till November 2012 when she had to return to Australia for work. We talk everyday but decided to wait till January 2013 to apply for the defo visa as that would be the 12 month mark and it costs a lot. We have all the evidence, joint bank accounts, photos, statements the lot. But will the fact we only lived together for 11 months go against us to a point were the application maybe rejected? Thanks.
  2. Hello everyone :wubclub: I must first express to you a big compliment for their successful and informative website. How I personally think it is difficult to understand the Australian immigration laws exactly.they often make for confusion in my head :goofy: but this is perhaps also of English tend to think not perfect or it is written in an official language. I have the book, or better said the brochure bought "Life in Australia" and signed up in various forums in order to find out how we have to proceed so that our partners subclass 820 visa is approved successfully. :idea: Our story is one of many unique and yet, we do not want to bore you so long, but we would like to ask you an honest council. :yes: because we do not know how to go further. :cry: I am a German and citizen with a visitor visa (ETA only, then 676) here, which expires on December 4th. Because then I'm 12 months now. We met in February this year and learned to love. :biggrin: Since that day, we live together in his house and spend every free minute together. Vacation, camping, fishing, family gatherings and friends and so on. We are getting married next month and then I have to leave Australia because we have the clause for 12 months do not meet the visa. :wubclub: I will fly to New Zealand to the rest of his family to know and spend a week to spend holidays. To then return with a new visitor visa to Australia. These allow us then to three months, it can submit the application deadline. My question is this is the right way? and where do I apply for the new visitor visa for Australia? in New Zealand or do I apply it here with my travel booking? Help us please, we want to jeopardize the applicant for the partner visa by anything. All other Documents, evidence, and their translation by a NAATI and the health - and we have police check completed successfully. Thank you for taking the time to read this and have taken many thanks in advance for your advice. :smile: thank you, thank you your CoOzzy
  3. Being as there are a lot of "sex" threads lately I thought I would keep it up. OK how many lovers have you had before your present wife or girlfriend :Randy-git:
  4. Hello, I am still in the process of moving to Oz with my partner and my son, 9 year old. I will be on sponsored work visa and on 55k salary. ( based on my research it might be a bit low for Sydney - but depends if my partner can get work ). My question is tied into the last sentence... if my family comes with me, will my partner be allow to work? His current job title is Sales Representative ( technical products - health and safety matting products to commercial buildings) which we noticed is on demand occupation list on Australian Government website. Also we would like to be close to Sydney but at the same time in a nice area with good schools and shopping centres. Can anyone please suggest good suburbs outside Sydney? Thanks
  5. Hi, I wonder if anyone could offer me any advice. My partner has been in Melbourne since May this year on a 457 visa. At the time of her application as I didn't qualify as defacto I came to Australia in August on a 12 month 676 tourist visa. I would like to change over my visa to be attached to her 457 to enable me to work but I have 8503 condition attached to my visa. I have called immigration for advice, and they said that I can only lodge an application outside of Australia. So as i see it my options are: 1) Try to get the 8503 condition waived - but as i understand it from the factcheet I don't really have a compelling reason to get this done, but is it worth trying anyway? 2) Leave Australia for a short break to NZ or Asia and lodge an application for a defacto 457 visa then come back in on my 676 visa as its valid until July 2011 Can anyone tell me if they have attempted either of these options before? My main concern is that if i left I wouldn't be able to get back in the country as immigration will notice that i've lodged another application and will question my 'tourist' status. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Ian
  6. Does anyone know the answer? I have to sell my car in 2 weeks before I come over to Australia but it is in my partners name and he is already in Australia! I have never sold a car before...will I need his signature or something!!! this has just dawned on me:wacko:
  7. Hi Everyone I'm relatively new to PIO, though have been following threads for a while. Let me introduce myself. I am a GP in a partnership, and have been at my current practice for 6 years. I enjoy my job and get on well with my colleagues... But they are not aware that... I am in the early stages of emigrating with OH and our 3 lovely children. I have a job offer from a practice on the Gold Coast (which I am very excited about!), but am only just applying for registration with the Australian Medical Council (I understand this process can take 3 months or more). I have also not applied for my visa yet (though I will be going on a 457 sponsored visa, and have been informed that this shouldn't take too long). My dilemma is... Our partnership is about to embark on a project which is likely to cost a considerable amount of money. We're talking several £100,000s. I do not want to be part of this project, for obvious reasons, but I feel that it is too early to tell them that I'm emigrating (until I know it's definitely on the cards). We are a very close partnership and I worry that if I confide in one of the partners, they will feel obliged to share the news. I am dreading telling them I'm leaving anyway, but this complication means I may have to do it much sooner than I wanted to. Help!! This is keeping me awake at night!!! :unsure: Thank you in anticipation to anyone who has any ideas...

    457 and partners record

    hey there i've been offered 2 jobs in Oz and we are planning to get started with everything just now! However, my husband has a record, its 20 years ago and there wasn't a custodial sentence. Just wondered if this has affected anyone and the timescales involved? ta! :goofy:
  9. Hi I am a 28 year old female from the UK (Leeds) travelling through Sydney for 1 month as of now. I travel back to Sydney once or twice a year for a month or 2 at a time I would love to meet any people (either male or females) to go to Sydney clubs with.... I am genuine and love a good night out! Let me know if you are new to town too as we can get to know the city together by night! Maria
  10. Hi All, Moving to Sydney end of February 2011. My wife is being sponsored on a 457 and I am the secondary visa holder which means i have full working rights. I am a qualified carpenter (NVQ Level 3) with 8 or so years experience. I want to consider both employed and contract work and understand for the latter I need a Contractor Licence. I have however just looked in to it in more detail and it states that no overseas qualifications are approved for licensing in NSW and that applicants from overseas who have already migrated to Australia should approach a Registered Training Organisation for an assessment of their skills and knowledge for the licence class relevant to their trade before they can get this licence. It does however state on the NSW Fair Trading website that "Any applicant issued with a qualification through VETASSESS is eligible to be granted a contractor licence or supervisor’s certificate for carpentry, bricklaying and/or joinery." But as I already have the 457 visa approved and will be in Australia can I still do this? I sat and passed the theory end of 2009 when we were planning on coming out on my trade. As VETASSESS keep sending me reminders to do the practical I assume I wont need to do the theory again? Any help would be much appreciated! God i keep finding more and more things we have to pay for!!!!!!!!!

This is the course they link to - CPC30208 Certificate III in Carpentry. I have had a look at this course and it is a full blown carpentry course - which means really expensive and lengthy!! is this really necessary, especially when i have already done the UK equivalent recently? It does however state on the NSW Fair Trading website that "Any applicant issued with a qualification through VETASSESS is eligible to be granted a contractor licence or supervisor’s certificate for carpentry, bricklaying and/or joinery." But as I already have the 457 visa approved and will be in Australia at the point when i can do an assessment the VETASSESS website refers me to the Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) website! CONFUSED!! Any help would be much appreciated! God i keep finding more and more things we have to pay for!!!!!!!!!

  14. Hi, I live in Hillcrest and like to run ( although not very fast). I went for a walk in Karawatha Forest Reserve the other day and there are some tracks that might be quite nice for running. It's a bit isolated though so I don't really fancy going on my own. If anyone would like join me for a relaxed run some time please let me know. Just a note that I'm a bit injured at the moment so once my physio gives me the all clear I might have to start with a couple of laps of Forest Lake, but running partners would always be welcome and I'm sure we could find somewhere for a coffee afterwards! I'm 32, live with my boyfriend, no kids, been in Oz for a year and a half. Kate
  15. Hi, My Partner has put me as a seconadary applicant on his Subclass 176 Skilled (Migrant) Sponsored visa. However we have lived in a long distance relationship for the past 3 year becasue I go to Uni in the U.K. I graduate in July and will head to Perth then but I need to know that I will have the right to work and if I am eligable for a bridging visa? and if I am how do I go about it? Thanks, Lindsay
  16. Hello, I am an Australian citizen who has lived and worked overseas for the past 3 1/2 years. I have spent 2 years on holiday working visas. The rest of the time i have been working in Europe over 2 summers illegally on overstayed tourist visas that were not picked up on and another 2 working winter seasons illegally. During this period i met an English girl 2 years prior and have been in a legitimate de-facto relationship for this time whilst working under the same employers. We have travelled to other countries in between work and have spent 5 weeks before Christmas in Australia to visit family. I am now currently in Europe and we are looking to apply for the Partner visa but aren't sure what the best way to do so. I have the following questions to ask: 1. Should i state on my application that i have spent 5 months in the Eu when my tourist visa states 3 even though i haven't had any problems thus far and do you think the dept will view this and pick up on this and affect our application? 2. Is it better to apply in Australia or the UK? 3. What is the general cost for this application? 4. Will this type of application be bettter and more likely to succeed if its through an agent? 5. For evidence of our relationship is there anything i can do now that will support our application, as we have no utility type bills in joint names? Thanks for taking the time to read this and possibly respond. We are in a genuine relationship and are looking forward to settling in a country were we can both work legally.:smile:
  17. I have seen threads in the past relating to people going because their partners wanted them to and because it was their dream and not their own. Must admit I'm one of those people and, despite its faults, I still love the UK. I do find it difficult to find reasons to stay some days though! I'd like to think that I will embrace Oz when we do come though. Anyway, I thought I'd open two threads so that it doesn't get confused and go off at a tangent as these sorts of threads very often do (I'm guilty of this also!). I'm going to copy this to my other opposite thread too.

  19. my other half has just sent his forms to me, he is quite dyslexic and has missed a few bits and bobs, also ticked one wrong box but i think will be ok. He declared at the end of the form that i hepled him etc etc that i was not in oz at the delaration bit at the end. so would i be able to fill in the missing bits for him , as there will be anoticiable difference in hand writing, but as he has declared me helping him, this should be ok? just i wanted to hand in application very soon, and dont want to have to wait to send back to him, then back to me again.:chatterbox: Thanks Nadine

    Advice on partners work choices

    Hi, I hope someone out there can offer us some advice. I am a nurse, and have been formally offered a position in queensland. Our house is going on the market, and as soon as we have a sale agreed, we will be in a position to go. My husband is 48 and we have two children aged two and six. We don't have any criminal history etc, I suppose I'd say we are of "good character", so are there likely to be any issues with our visa application? Also, my husband has been in retail for 20 years, but in the last five years has been involved in building and refurbishment jobs. Will it be necessary for him to provide any evidence of work experience, tax returns etc as part of the visa application.? I think that he is seeking to find a retail position, or set up a retail consultancy type of business. Any advice would be very welcome indeed. Regards, Eve
  24. Hi, My partner is English (I'm Australian) & we're aplying for the 309 Spouse Visa to migrate to OZ. He has a Honors Degree in SPORTS SCIENCE and studied at John Moores University in Liverpool. He was advised that both the course and Uni is recognised worldwide, especially for its sporting aspect. However, when contacting a few places in Oz, no-one seems to know, but are leaning towards "It might not". At this point we have no idea whether it counts for anything at all, or whether we've been given correct information! Is there a site we can go to to find out? Or can we contact someone who might be able to advise? We hope to move there if the visa (hopefully) is granted, but we really need to know whether its worth looking for jobs associated with the degree, and if we can get some sort of evidence to say that we can use it (degree) internationally (As most employers won't bother employing if they're not sure). Any help would be appreciated! :yes: Thanks Skye & Stephen
