176 lodged June 2011 Gang

Recommended Posts

I would definately like to keep in touch - I'm a little concerned about being isolated until we make new friends, so to have people we are already in touch with is before getting there can only be a good thing :-D

 

We really did love Rockingham. We literally stayed on the beach (well the bbq green and a road was in between - but we had nothing to complain about) there is a large ex-pat community - probably more British then Aussie there LOL. it is a lovely stretch along the promenade and the links to the city by bus and metro were fantastic. there is also a massive Westfield shopping centre & entertainment complex a bus ride away as well. I don't think it is a bad place to start out from :wink:

Count us in on the keeping in touch, Rockingham sounds great for us if we can afford it !

Sounds great. Ive saw homes there from as little as $350 a week upwards. I think theres a mixture of affordable and expensive homes so its perfect.

If we all keep up to date with our visas and help eachother along the way, im sure we'll make some good friends for when we get there :biggrin:

do I need to get all my familys passport numbers in the upload section?.....Ihave 13 brothers and sister:yes::biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh: (half and step) it would take me a million years to get them all to respond to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Only if they are going with you!!

Just you and your dependants you need to upload the passport biopages for.

When do you need to fill in form 80????

 

Cheers

 

You can do it now or wait for your CO to ask (when you have a CO !) depending on how much of a hurry you're in !

And form 1221 apparently !

Well just waiting for a copy on my birth certificate and OH to get more passport photos don't coz forgot to scan one in before we used them for TRA etc (DOH!)

 

Have even done the form 80's and 1221 - I know I'm just a swot.

 

nowt else to do but wait now .....

 

Jimi - I paniced when I saw those rellies come up on the application I thought I'd filled form in wrong and that we were intending to take all OH's family on our visa too! I've just ignored it for now if DIAC want them when CO assigned will get them then :-)

 

good luck all

We lodged on Sunday night and we got our confirmation email from DIAC this morning. Also see on the email that they state that we need to upload the form 80 and 1221 so it looks like it is a standard request now. still all done just waiting for WA to sent through the SS to DIAC ....

Spose I ought to get on the 80/1221 then :confused:

So glad I have got my 176 lodged now as my occupation is off the SOL from 1st July. Just got to hope that doesn't change my priority when I get a CO.

I did see an Errors form on the immi site somewhere but can't remember the number.

Don't worry too much, I'm sure your CO will spot it and ask for clarification.

I feel your pain. I realised last night that we'd ticked a wrong box on page 1 of our form 80 so have just attached new ones and put in the comment about the others being incorrect. Fingers crossed the case officer will understand what I've done!

sorry i shouldnt laugh - but that is quite funny. I'd just upload it again under marriage certificate. Hopefully it will make them have a chuckle you could explain to CO when assigned too - but then I am definately no expert:nah:

Hiya

 

Can we join the thread!!! Lodged 176 on 5th June. Its taken nearly 2 years to get to this point so we are so happy at the mo. Haven't uploaded any docs yet as we are picking up our new printer/scanner tomorrow, so will get going on that ASAP.

We are hopefully heading to Melbourne area. No family there, but best friend met and married an aussie and moved there 9 years ago.

Our families are sort of aware of the situation but won't even talk about it!

Anyway it will be great to hear about everyones progress on here and good luck to us all

Sent you a PM.

We thought the same about the homes being so close to the beach but kids would love a pool.I don't think it would be essential though,just nice lol x
