  1. Hi, I'm on a 457 visa since September 2017 and my work is becoming intolerable to the extent where I want to resign every day. My partner is Australian and we have been together for 6 years, having moved last year. We chose the 457 option due to costs involved in the partner visa, as well as it taking longer to be granted. We would like to move to a partner visa now, however my understanding is that if I apply, any bridging visa would get annulled if I resign from my job - is this correct? What would happen if I resign from my job and THEN apply for a partner visa? Can I do this onshore on say, a tourist visa? How likely would I be granted a bridging visa in this case? My other option is to transfer to another job which is what I am working on at the moment. However now that we have some savings and we know that we like our life here, the freedom of a partner visa would be preferred if there's a way to do that! Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi, I'm on a 457 visa. Not liking living here so we want to return to the UK. Can I resign and get my fare paid to go back to the UK or do I need to get myself sacked for that! Want to save myself the cash and get the employer to pay for it. One person I talked to said the obligation to pay return fare is only provided if the employer terminates me. I know that won't happen, so do I need to commit gross misconduct? Thanks
  3. This is a classic, there has been calls for Chris Bowen to resign over this. Really this clip is about 30 minutes long, its an interview of Chris Bowen by Ray Hadley most of it is about various immigration/visa issues, the last (and best) bit basically blows Bowen out of the water. These asylum seekers have been making improvised bombs in Villawood police have confirmed they are investigating this and the immigration minister didn't even know anything about it. http://www.2gb.com/index2.php?option=com_newsmanager&task=view&id=8792
  4. Hi, Just wanna ask if it's ok while waiting for the status of my visa, to resign from work and go out of the country to work there until i hear anything from DIAC? Would that affect the assessment of my application since by that time, i am no longer connected with the employer that I was with during my lodgement? Please advise. Thanks
  5. I'm on a 457 visa and I am not happy with the company that has sponsored me. I want to go back home. Does anyone know what the company is liable for if I resign? Does the company still pay for all my costs incurred in Australia and costs to go back home? I know if I get 28 days and cannot find another sponsor they are liable for all the above. Please help.
  6. :err:My wife and I was granted a RSMS 857/119 visa and we made the jump to Australia in February. BUT - has anyone on this site ever actually resigned from their employer within their 2 year "obligation" ? I'm obviously considering it and although there is mention made on this site and others of the fact that DIAC/IMMI have the powers to exercise the cancellation of the visa, they have never done so. Is there anyone who has actually resigned before who can give advise as to what the steps are, does the employer inform them, do they contact you, do I have to inform IMMI? So far the feedback I'm getting is they don't "police" RSMS 119 + Per. Residence visas. If I find work elsewhere does a future employer have to inform anyone - for argument sake lets say I want to move from Queensland to Victoria. If I resign tommorrow what do I need to do to stay ligitimate? I look forward to your response(s)
  7. We're waiting for our subclass 422 med practitioner temporary resident visa, and were informed by DIMIA on 1 July 08 that the average wait is 6-8 weeks - which is in mid to end August 08. I have to give 3 months notice at work, so the earliest that we could be in Oz if all goes well is late Nov, early Dec 08. UNFORTUNATELY, my medical check up was done in end Nov 07:wacko:, and either expire by then or we'll be pushing it real close. Has anyone ever contacted that CO to chase things up? I am wondering if I should, but I don't want to irritate my CO unnecessarily. Or maybe I'll just have to do another medical if need be, but this will only delay things I guess. Or do I take a huge gamble and hand in my notice in mid Aug 08 if I still don't hear anything. This is a huge risk as I am the only breadwinner:err:. I am so tired of waiting. We have a 2-year old DD, and want another one, but DH and I postponed that, and thought we would wait until I would qualify for the maternity leave in Oz (which is only paid for 2 months). We never expected such a long wait, and could theoretically have had another one by now already. Plus I'll be leaving a permanant contract with the NHS for only a 1-year contract in Oz. And I would have been entitled to 9-months of 1/2 pay maternity leave if we had remained in the UK. Plus the biological clock is ticking away as I'm 37. Sighhh... Any opinions would be most welcome...Please talk some sense into me!
