  1. Hi All Legislation has either been passed earlier this week or is about to be passed (I'm not sure which) that will have a substantial impact on some of the people who hope to apply to migrate to Australia but who have not yet lodged an application for a GSM visa. GSM = General Skilled Migration = no employer sponsorship. GSM visas can be unsponsored, State sponsored or family sponsored but they are not employer sponsored. The relevant document is here: http://www.comlaw.gov.au/ComLaw/Legislation/LegislativeInstrument1.nsf/0/4BD460987FA1AD09CA25768D0007252A/$file/0928290A091201EV.pdf A well-known migration agent gave me his initial reaction to the document above in an e-mail yesterday evening. I quote verbatim: I wondered where my informant obtained his information till I happened to look at ComLaw for a completely unrelated purpose just now. As far as I can see, there is nothing on the DIAC website about these latest changes from 1st Jan 2010 as yet? I can't find anything specific, anyway. I think we will see more about all this soon - probably next week sometime, I suspect. Cheers Gill
  2. After submitting and passing the ACS RPL and getting all the forms filled and snet off before the September 1st deadline, the call from my solictor to say the house sale has been complete is by far the most signifcant moment in our application. When we first considered emmigrating some 12 months ago I thought that when this moment arrived I would have some second thoughts perhaps. But whether it's been the stress of moving, the constant wondering of 'will they/won't they' over our buyers trying to renegoiate the price (which they didn't!) or what but I haven't really given it a second thought. It's just one less thing we now have to worry about. Now I concentrate all my worries on waiting for that damn case file number so we can get our meds and police checks done!!!!! Yours nonchalantly, xtonite (Mr)
  3. The Australian Federal Government has announced changes its popular working holidaymaker visa program. The most significant change means visa holders will be able to work for any one employer for six months rather than three. Study periods have been extended to four months rather than three. The Government has also widened its definition for qualifying fields of employment for the popular visa ‘extension’ program For further info, please visit: http://www.visabureau.com/australia/news/03-05-2006/significant-changes-to-australia-working-holiday.aspx Cheers,
