Haha exactly the same for us!

We would have to stay until 2020 at least and I couldn't do it, we may regret t in the future but for now its the right thing to go. 

Yes that's really good !

I know i'm stressing about selling things haha but We just couldn't wait, my husband has to give 3 months notice at work (and they have a department in Melbourne so a transfer is possible but not certain so didn't want to piss them off and just leave) so he resigned a day after the visa came through so leaving end of May. 

He has been sending money back to Aus all the time he has been here and has used transfer wise. I think they charge you 2 (pound) per transfer weather its 100 or 1000 your sending over. Depending how much money you have to move i believe there are better ones for larger amounts. 

Transfer wise does get it to Aus within about 2-3 days usually

If you sign up with Moneycorp through this forum, you get a fee-free account.   I found their system really easy to use.

We have a Moneycorp section of the forum, plus a Money and Finance section you can browse and ask in. Lots of options for forex companies etc there so you can research and see what suits you best.

Thank you , I had a brief conversation with someone from moneycorp but it was just before my visa was granted so I didn’t need to move money then .

so I just need to upload my ID documents .

What I liked about Moneycorp was being able to transfer my money at a good exchange rate, then I could let it sit in my Moneycorp account until I got my bank account opened (which, since I was going Australia-UK, took weeks!).  I guess other providers can do the same but it's worth checking

Hello

Congratulations to you and yours!!! What a relief this must be for you.

I would be grateful to get advice from you. I have a British passport and I applied for my Partner Visa offshore in Paris, where I was living in the last few years. 

I had been with my Australian partner for just over 3 years. I applied on 20th Nov 2017. I 'm currently in Australia on a visitor's visa. Came so I can wait for the process here.

My CO wrote to me that a Partner Combination Visa  309/ 100 is ready for grant. I have to leave Australia to get it. Thats all good and I have no prob going to NZ to get it.

Do you know how I get my Permanent  Visa 100? I don't think I have to wait 2 years but is there a process for this? We submitted very solid evidence to prove we have been living together and in a de facto relationship for over 3 years.

 

Any helpful tips will be appreciated

Thank you

Elida

Hi there , you apply for both at the same time ( same application ) 

you don’t know what’s granted until the email comes through I’m sorry . 

It sounds like you may be lucky enough and get the 100 but I’m no expert. 

 

Good of luck and I wish you well xx
