      Try to contact the in house tax expert Hugo2 on this forum. He lives in SA but is probably the best in his field of Cross Border Tax. If you still have problems then PM me and I will give you his email address.

      Hi, Assessment was done in October and all paperwork was submitted in November. Slight glitch as my mother in law has to do a medical in Australia for a preexisting condition, which has cut her medical validity down from 12 to 6 months. Has anyone experienced the same issue with medical preexisting condition? Has to be in the country before 26 March 2019.

      @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

      Good day TeeTMI
       
      I was wondering if you could please assist me with an initial visa assessment. I am a South African with 2 years teaching experience with children aged between 11 and 14. I have a PCGE in Mathematics education as my highest degree. Looking to immigrate to Australia, am I eligible for a Visa?
