      My mum compiled the required forms and ordered them as per the Checklist supplied with the instructions. She then sent them by courier to my home address and I sent them through registered Auspost.    I don't think you need to worry about binders etc as they may afterall have their own system of receipting and filing.   Just keep a full copy of the application and all supportings before sending them.    Just get the application in as fast as you can as the delays are already inordinate.  Best wishes

      I’ve forgotten already but camping with my daughter and family now, she confirmed that we sent the initial 47PA application papers to her and she sent it by registered post to Parent Centre in Perth.  It could be different now. Just consult the internet and 143 application details.

      They only credit your post PGCE experience because you were not a qualified teacher (for their purposes) until you had the PGCE.
    • RYLC
      I thought all the documents were uploaded electronically nowadays. @Dirkz (or anybody who has already done this step) can you give please guidance to Geronimo.

      Good Day,
       
      When lodging your visa, are you required to include a cover letter that is like an index of all your submissions.

      Good Day,
       
      On the issue of dependant children etc, I am applying for the SC804 Aged Parent Visa. Is it compulsory or even necessary to complete and submit Form 47A if you have no dependant children?
      My children are all married. It is only my wife and me that is applying for the visa.
       
      Thank you in advance.

      @TeeTMI I have seen a few of your posts, you are very knowledgable and was wondering if you could help me out with a little information.  I was granted my 143 parent visa in July 2018 and my eldest son is my sponsor.  I only have two son's and am a single parent. 
       
      My younger son and his wife are still in SA, what options do I have in somehow in the future bringing him over so we as a family can all be together again.  
       
      I would really appreciate any advice you are able to give me, the three of us have always been really close and it's such a disjointed feeling knowing he is not here.  
       
      Thank you so much......

      Hi Nini,
      I'm hoping you are still checking posts.....I see your husband is a carpenter and you successfully got your visas.  We are busy applying - my husband is a carpenter, self-employed for x10 years.  I would love to ask some questions about the skills assessment even though it was years ago. Thanks so much
