    Just saying hello!

    Hello! I have just joined your lovely forum and have had a good look around. I have dreamt about making the move to Oz for at least a decade! And I've finally managed to convince the hubby that it is a good idea!! (I hope I'm not wrong ) We are just starting our in-depth research now so I know we are a while away from the big move. We are thinking of relocating to Perth, however this would be dependant on the availability of jobs for us both. We also have 4 children (ages 6, 8, 11 and 13) so at least 2 of them will be teens when we move. Has anyone else successfully made the move with teens? Any tips on making the process easier for them? I know it can take a while before you are in invited to apply for your visa after submitting your EOI so would you recommend submitting asap just in case? My concern is that it all happens to quickly and we won't have time to complete our research - I know this is unlikely, but I'm just being cautious! Perhaps it would be better to wait until we've done all our research before submitting the EOI? Thank you for your time and I look forward to reading your replies
  3. Hi, Can anyone advice with citizenship? Can I apply for citizenship only for me even when I'm married? When my wife and I have permanent residency. My home country allows me to have dual citizenship, so I'd like to apply for oz citizenship. My wife have different citizenship and her country doesn't allow dual citizenship. She doesn't want to loose it. I can't find any details on official websites, if it is possible. Had anyone similar experience? Thanks

    Spouse Visa

    Hi everyone, Has anyone out there experience of applying for a Spouse visa? The wife is Australian (only recently married but have been living in sin for 6 years in London) and after putting it off for a number of years I'm ready to take the plunge. I am confident the character and health requirements will be a formality and that we have extensive evidence of a long and committed relationship to each other. Basically I think that my application should be straight forward (if that is possible in the world of migration). So my questions are, has anyone any idea or experience as to how long the application process would possibly take? Would a migration agent be necessary too? Thanks for taking the time to read this!
  7. Hi, We received our visa yesterday it's a GSM 176 Skilled visa with sponsorship from my brother in Perth. My wife is pregnant which was noted in our visa application. Can anyone tell me what we must do when regarding our visa when our new baby is born? Must we get a passport and send the details to our Case Officer to have the baby added to our visa? Thanks Scott
  8. Ok so. I met my husband 2 1/2 years ago and we have tripped around asia and europe, got married and vola. Now it is time to go home, however HOME is now Australia as thats where mum, dad, my brother and sister all live! Am I an eligible NZ citizen to apply for my UK born husband to migrate to Australia? Or do we have to banish ourselves to NZ to gain his residency there then go the AUs in a few years time. How complex is love? Thanks carla
  9. If we apply PR , is my wife eligible to study Bachelor degree in Australian university.Does she have to enroll as a student ? thanx in advance
  10. I'd just like to ask how long does it takes to have Medicals finalised? My wife and I took our medical exams last 28 October 2011. My medical results were marked online as "Further medical results received" on 29 October 2011 while my wife's medical results were marked as "Received" last 04 November 2011 (since she was asked to repeat the urine test after one week). Her Health requirements were finalised on 09 Nov 2011. I was just wondering why the status of my medicals are not changed/updated yet. Wife Medical Timeline: Nov 4 - Medicals received Nov 7 - Medicals referred Nov 9 - Medicals finalised My Medical timeline: Oct 29 - Medicals received by the way I do not have any medical issues.
  11. Hi All, After a few weeks of looking at ex-pat, council and real estate websites, the wife and I are fairly confident about a move to the Gold Coast (as confident as you can be 10,000 miles away!). I have read in a few threads about areas of the Gold Coast that offer a village feel but can't seem to find the names of these areas. Could someone please fill me in? I guess I'm referring to coffee shop areas with market scenes and boutique shops (very important to the Mrs). I also would like to enquire about the cycle lanes and parks. Our family are fairly outdoorsy. Being close to the sea will be good for the surf but we also like getting the kids out on the bikes. Are there many open and safe such cycle ways especially along the coastline. The council websites offer excellent maps but it is hard to appreciate whether or not the above applies. Parks seem to be on every doorstep in SouthEast Queensland but any further info on those in the Gold Coast area would be welcomed. Thanks for the help!
  12. :goofy:Does anyone living in Sydney have a wife who is going barmy and only thinks of returning to England on the next available flight. My family and I have been here since October 2010. I work in Sydney and my wife has tried to get a job but no luck yet. If your having the same problems, please let me know. Maybe our wives can contact each other and share similar issues. My wife is from the north east of England, Durham. Any comments more than welcome.
  13. Not that I'm planning this or anything but we are now in the final stages of our 176 visa (I'm the main applicatant) and hoping to move to Oz next year. I just wondered if I decided Oz wasn't for me but my wife and children wanted to stay could they ? Once we arrive does everyone then in effect have a permanent visa or would my wife and children have to leave if I left ? Roy
  14. The UK's Foreign Office says it is working to secure the release of a kidnapped British tourist whose husband was murdered during a robbery at a luxury Kenyan beach resort favoured by celebrities. The incident happened overnight at the remote Kiwayu Safari Village resort, close to Somalia, where artist Tracey Emin and actress Imelda Staunton have stayed. It is believed the armed gang responsible were from Somalia and may have used a speedboat to get away from the island. A Foreign Office spokesman said: 'We can confirm that two British citizens were attacked overnight at a beach resort north of Lamu, near the Kenya-Somalia border. 'One was killed and another kidnapped. We are working closely with the Kenyan authorities to establish further details.' The spokesman added: 'We are working to secure the safe and swift release of the British national... and ask those involved to show compassion and release (her) immediately.' Officials in Kenya say the couple were attacked on the first night of their stay at the resort, which consists of 18 luxury cottages spread along a private beach. Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere said they had come from a trip to the Masai Mara reserve and were the resort's only guests. A Kenyan security official said a policeman arrived to see six men carrying the woman away. He decided not to shoot in case he hit her. There is speculation the kidnappers could be from an al Qaeda-linked group called al-Shabab that holds much of southern Somalia. Advice posted on the Foreign Office website advises travellers against going within 30 miles of the Kenya-Somalia border. The resort says on its website: 'Kiwayu Safari Village takes your security and safety very seriously. 'We have our own organic security protocols as well as a professional security structure which provides us with overarching security and safety 24 hours a day.'

    Man sued by wife for lack of sex

    It's bad enough when your wife divorces you over a lack of sex and the judge rules you "solely responsible." It's worse when she takes you back to court two years later and garners 10,000 euro in damages. But this apparently happened in—where else?—France, where a man known in court documents as Jean-Louis B. was ordered to pay out around $14,000 to his ex, answering the prayers of dozens of stand-up comedians and talk show monologue writers: The 47-year-old ex-wife then took him back to court demanding 10,000 euros in compensation for "lack of sex over 21 years of marriage". The ex-husband claimed "tiredness and health problems" had prevented him from being more attentive between the sheets. But a judge in the south of France's highest court in Aix-en-Provence ruled: "A sexual relationship between husband and wife is the expression of affection they have for each other, and in this case it was absent. The ruling is based on "article 215 of France's civil code, which states married couples must agree to a 'shared communal life,'" which the judge holds includes sex.

  17. My Australian Immigration Medicals have been completed and finalized. All documents have been met. Expecting Visa Grant any time. I found out today that my wife is pregnant. What should i do now? Should I inform the case officer or just wait for the grant. What options do I have as my initial entry date is expected to be 1st week of June 2012 and my Wife's due date is Mid April 2012. Cant go immediately for visa validation due to my job commitments. Was planning to have a visa validation trip in Feb - March 2012 but wife wont be able to travel then. I think that if i wait until our baby is born, we wont be able to get the baby's visa after birth in April in time to make it there before first week of June. Please respond urgently, because if i get the grant letter in a couple days, i wouldnt have too much options. Look Forward to prompt responses. PLEASE HELP....

  21. HiI've applied for my PR application (onshore) in June 2010 and still waiting for it to be finalized. At the time of lodggment of my PR in June 2010, I was engaged to a girl, back in overseas, and I'd put my fiancée's name and my marital status as 'engaged' in the application (only these details).In the last month i.e. April 2011, I had my wedding ceremony and I got married, back in overseas.I've come back here now and my wife is in overseas.Since, I'm on bridging visa, what options do I have now to bring my wife here in australia. I know of the below options but I'm considering them as my last if I don't find any better one.1. Tourist visa (showing evidence of our marriage)2. Student visa (her independent case)3. Apply her spouse visa, once I get my PR (it will take another 1 year to process her case after I get my PR case finalized, too long, not sure when will I get my PR)As I've put my fiancée's name in the application, is it going to help me some way in bringing her here, either at the same time when my case gets decided?I will really appreciate if someone can advise me.Thank youRegards,Vj Kodwani

    wife gets sponsored but i dont

    My wife and I are planning on 12 month on a WHV in March next year, my wife has a degree in marketing and has been successfull in her working life so far. I have also been successfull in unskilled work and am currently a manager in a call centre. I think their is a high possibility that my wife will get sponsored within 6 months of getting a job out there, but am worried that i wont get sponsored due to the type of work i will be doing. My question is, would i be able to stay in the country on my wifes Temp Business Visa if she got sponsored? or would i be better doing 3 months farming to get get the second year?
  24. Hi guys, I have had a search through a fair number of threads of which some are similar but not quite the same to this question. OK so here is the situation. I have been in Oz for just over 3 years now on a 457 (different employers so I cannot apply for PR yet). I am looking to get married next year to my girlfriend who is back in the UK and want to know if I can add her to my current 457 (not a new application). Specific info: We were together several years ago, but have been back together seriously for the last 3 months (so by the time she is looking to relocate out here next year we will have evidence of having been together for over 6 months which seems to be what is required on a 457 in the first place) She is over 31 so she cant come out on a working holiday visa for 12 months by which time I should have my PR application in, she can only come out on a standard 3 month tourist visa. Can my current visa be adjusted to include her? Does it make any difference if we get married here or back in the UK where both of our families are? If I can get my PR application in sooner would I just include her on that application? Or once I have my PR granted can I marry her and she can then live here (I guess this would require a change to my PR visa as well) Any help or assistance would be greatly appreciated. We would be looking to stay here and at some point in the future raise a family here. Just after my best course of action if it would be: If I can get her added to my current 457 If I would be better to do my PR application and add her onto that application as my spose If my PR is granted before she comes out can I then add her to my PR visa? Thanks
  25. I have full custody of my daughter from previous marriage and have done for 6 years now. The ex wife through extreme circumstances is not allowed to have ANY contact with my daughters and court orders reflect this. They've also been updated through the years also.. I've been offered a job in Oz which I'd be silly not to take and we all want to go.. However do I need to go to court to seek permission from the ex who's not allowed to participate in her life nor indeed never paid any money for maintenance.?? Is this order I've currently got enough..?? I really don't want to go to court as it will open the circus up again and the whole process is very stressful, especially for my daughter.
