  1. Hi All - Am moving back to UK and applying for spouse visa for wife, our money is mostly tied up in our mortgage and we cant sell the house till we get the visa. In order to show sufficient funds to support ourselves would it be alright to show a professional valuation of the house and our bank statement showing our mortgage debt thus showing our equity in the house. We reckon we'd have about AUS180,000 available but only after the sale. Would UK accept these documents as proof of sufficient funds - surely lots of people are in this position. Thanks in advance Ricrog

    Sufficient Funds for WA

    Hi to all on PIO, I was just wondering if the sufficient funds for a SS for WA includes any pensions that we would be transferring across to Oz? I know it is around $35,000 AUD that is classed as "sufficient" ( I believe that is about right). Any info on this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Kelly
  3. Hi all, First post on the site, I am booked in to sit my IELTS test in May, and have sent off to have my skills assessed. When I have these two completed I will be applying for Sponsorship from the WA government before applying for a General skilled offshore visa. My question is, the WA government asks that you have "sufficient funds" to settle in Australia, a fairly loose term. But how much is this deemed to be, and when do they require evidence? My problem is, I am not a home owner, we only rent a house, and don't yet have much in the way of savings. However I'm expecting the whole process of migrating to take at least 18 months, by which time I'm expecting to have around £15k saved up. Will this be classed as "sufficient funds"? and do I need to have evidence of this when I apply for state sponsorship? If so, this is going to set me back by a good 12-18 months. Thanks in advance for your replies, and for info, I am from the UK, married, and will have 2 children by the time August 2010 arrives.
  4. So I have a cousin who is applying for VIC state sponsorship. He has assets in cash, securities, gold etc? And this should amount to about 40,000 AU$. Will he need to make a stat. declaration of these assets? Or what do you think will be the evidences that will need to be attached to the online application to support this claim?
  5. Ive been looking at WA State Sponsorship and applying under the GSM it states you need sufficient funds for settlement (i think). How much are we talking and how do they check you have these funds?

    Sufficient funds for SS WA

    Hi All Would anyone know the answer to this. I have been looking at the WA State Sponsership, State Migration Centre » Skilled Sponsored Visa and it says that you have to bring sufficient funds into the State to cover settlement costs. Do you have to show this in liquid (Savings) or can it be Assets (House/Business). Looking forward to hearing from someone. Thanks Sedgecl

    Sufficient Funds ?

    Hello, Does anyone know what would be acceptable for 'Sufficient funds' for WA SS ? I can't see anywhere on any site a guideline, where there is any limit ? being a single bod would £10,000 be enough ? obviously I know the more I can get the better it would be but does anyone know what the chances are if I said £4K for instance. I can money tranferred into my account from a relative. I have a house etc so I could put those as assets if I can ? However I plan to keep on renting it here but if push came to shove I would sell. I am trying to weigh up what I need to get and how. Any help would be much appreciated if anyone can. Thanks and Happy Days.
  8. I am in the process of applying for a state sponsored skilled worker visa for SA. I am applying with an occupation from the SA occupations in demand list and meet all criteria except one. The sufficient standing resources rule which states you need a minimum in assets of $25,000. However, there is an exception to the rule that if you are a recent graduate a parent is allowed to sponsor/guarantee your application if they have sufficient funds. I graduated in November 2005. Will I still be classed as a recent graduate making me eligible to take advantage of the above rule or is it too late? Does anyone know the period after graduating before you are no longer classed as a recent graduate for the above rule? Thanks for any help you can provide.
  9. Hi everyone, We have just been given our state sponsorship from WA. One of our obligations is to transfer 125K into Western Australia. For us to do this we need to sell our house first. Can we still apply to DIAC for our visa without having the 125k yet? Do they check we have the funds before they issue the visa??? Many Thanks Hannah:chatterbox::realmad:
