  1. Hi I have researched the amount of money that is needed to be held by myself in ordered to get a 190 / 489 visa in Queensland. It states that for an applicant +1 other the total value of assets must be Aus $35000 with Aus $ 15000 being cash. It also states that proof is only required for the cash part. I have assets that I could sell to get the aus $35000 but I don't really want to sell my British properties yet. Once I have proven the cash part do you ever need to provide evidence of the rest ? If anybody out there has been through this process I would be very greatfull if you could help kindest regards , ollie
  2. Hi all, I am planning to move to Sydney at the end of the year, I have a 176 visa sponsored by nsw. In a nutshell, I think I'll rent for a short time a serviced appartment after having arrived and will look for a house (I prefer a house to an appartment, like calm environments) to rent on a long term while at the same time look for a job (savings will pay for the rental at the beginning). I have a few open questions where I would like to have your insights. - how much time do you think I should rent a serviced appartment ? I have read rentals go fast so I don't want to run the risk of having not found anything at the end of the rental period of the serviced appartm. - what location should I target ? I'm alone, no children, so no need to find a school,etc. I'm more concerned about commute time and as I still do not know where I will work, I'm planning to look into chatswoord, artarmon, etc. as these places are close to the cbd and macquarie park which to my knowledge are where many IT engineers work (I am one btw). I plan to buy a car but think it's best to commute by train so being close to a rail line seems important. Anyone that had to go through this and give advice, you're welcome Thanks

    Spouse settlement VISA

    Hi guys Does anyone know how much money as a minimum you'd need to be able to prove you had in order for the spouse settlement visa to be approved? Bearing in mind I work from home as a typist and earn a fair whack per week - does this help as I would be working within a couple of weeks after we arrive - all I need is a computer and internet access. PS The spouse settlement visa is for hubby, not me! Also, what if hubby had a job to go to when he arrived? Does that help towards it? Thanks Katye
  4. I thought i would start a new thread as the other regarding Visa's is getting a bit long! Im from the UK my husband is Australian and we had a reply 6th September via email from Canberra that they had received the documents. As yet we have not heard anything back and we are on day 40 (having taken off weekends and bank holiday) I know there is at least 2 more couples going through this waiting game and wondered just how many are waiting and if anyone else has recently had a settlement spouse visa granted? Anyone out there who has recently been granted a visa: Did you get the reply saying granted via email or letter first? Has anyone got a reply via email over the weekend? I hate this waiting game, it is so stressful as we have so much riding on it! Everday i check then re-check emails, the post box and the Gov web site for waiting time statistics that is still on August :arghh: I dread the weekends thinking that we have another 2 days to get through untill monday for email or post (hence the earlier question) All i want to do is go home ....... I look forward to any replies and hopefully with postings we might all be able to get a rough idea on time frames? When we finally get a reply i will post asap Hope its good news for all soon :hug: Deb Just to say we got the visa! (day 48) was giving up hope!! Good luck to those waiting Deb :chatterbox:
  5. My friend advice me not to settle the car loan even if i sell of my old car? Can i legally do that?
  6. Hello All I was just wondering if anyone knows the required amount with regards to the settlement funds for W.A. ? In what way do you prove you have the funds (is proof required)? Finally, anyone have any contacts for Architectural Technicians / CAD Drafters? Thanks CARL

    Settlement period!!!

    Hi About the Aged Contributory visa AGAIN!!! Does anybody know that if 100% of your children and grandchildren are migrating to Oz, do i really have to be there for 2 years in order to sponsor my parents or are they leniant considering the circumstances? Or could somebody else who is an Australian citizen sponsor them? I have been on the DIMA website and read all the criteria again and again, but there are a lot of words like 'normally' and 'usually'. Any help or advice would be fantastic. Thanks Rache
