  1. Hopefully Keenan would have received their visa but now. The Dept of Home Affairs don't currently provide ongoing processing times for the 489 visa as there are too few being processed to make a reliable estimate. NB: this visa has now closed to new applications.

  2. Did citizenship ceremony on line via webex today. Very simple and efficient. While I regret not having the pomp and ceremony of a public event, I'm so grateful that this was an alternative that meant we didn't have to wait. The Home Affairs official was lovely and made the ceremony special in it's own way. Advance Australia Fair!

  3. If you get a skilled permanent visa you would not be held at gunpoint to remain in that role unless it is a sponsored visa of some sort (employer/regional etc). So I would say go for the one that would get you PR. I've met so many people who came to Australia skilled in one thing then end up doing something completely different. If it is not a provision of your visa, you can choose any career you like.

  4. Congrats Eyebrow. You made it, all the way to citizenship. So happy for you. Such a relief. I remember sitting with you in Melbourne before you made the move and thinking of your journey and how hard it would be. But just like those of us who have battled and may be a bit battle scarred, you have made it. Onwards and upwards from here. You will see. Every year it gets better and easier. You are a testament to the human spirit and never giving up. Ps - haven't been on the forum for a few years, but had to find your thread when I popped in for a visit.

  6. Eyebrow I do believe there in a book here ? It would be wonderful for you to write one....it would represent a road that all of us have travelled in some way. I am in awe of your persistence and determination. All the very best to you and your family in The Land of Oz. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฅ‚

  7. Congratulations on your family becoming Australian Citizens Eyebrow! The effort and dedication you have put into making your journey work has been extraordinary. Many (most) people would have given up at any one of the many obstacles (and the pain, frustration and heartache that some of these must have caused) that were placed in your way along the course of your journey. My hat is off to you - I hope they had trumpets celebrating your Citizenship ceremony as you certainly deserved them. Go well.
