  1. Seeing as we're stuck in Australia, and seriously suffering from cabin fever, I'm planning a road trip through the Kimberley. I was thinking flying to Darwin, rent a 4x4 with a roof tent (or maybe not, depending on accommodation options) and hit the road to Broome, then fly back to Sydney, taking 2 or 3 weeks. Not sure how much time would be needed but considering flying to Alice Springs and start from there instead. Anyone who has done that? I'm only just starting out so I'm basically clueless... ðŸĪŠ Super excited though - something to look forward to ðŸĪ

  2. Update: a few people have mentioned receiving 'Queue dates' and in the wider community concerns about why some applications have received queue date letters and others not. Our industry provider (Migration Institute of Australia) has clarified this with the Department who have explained that 'applications lodged prior to 1 June 2018 have automatically been allocated a queue date that is the same as the date of lodgement'. Processing Dates: updated as of 04 Jun 2021 Temporary to Permanent Contributory P

  4. From my understanding, if they do grant you an exemption to travel to Australia on a temporary visa based on critical skills, that only you would be allowed to enter - not your family - as it would be an individual exemption. I could be wrong but that's how I read and understand it. If your employer writes a letter that your skill is very specialised and critically needed and that they are unable to source someone locally, that could strengthen your case. Also if your being here is crucial to the survival of the company or that they would lose business/clients etc without your sk

  7. One tip from me: Verify your right to work and whatever else is available on Certsy e.g. Excel to stand out on Seek. 😉

  8. Hello Carole, DHA must be doing an initial review of your application and need more information re your family composition. Once you provide this if DHA are happy with the content it is likely you will not hear from them for another couple of years I am afraid. DHA are currently assessing SC143 application lodged in May 2016 (they have been stuck on May 2016 for the last 6 months). You can check this here. I hope this helps. Regards

  9. I applied in May 2016. I have since had a response saying that they've met their quota for 2020 intake, and that I'll hear from them towards the end of June / early July

  10. Hi, I'm also still here. I also only check in here every few months. I will also be applying for citizenship in 5 weeks' time. I agree with some of the statements above about the temporary nature of Facebook group. I guess Facebook is the default platform these days, but I find a forum like this is much better as a long-term knowledge base.

  11. Joined 2008 and have a look-in at what is happening every now and then. Did a few journal posts in the early days, but as time passes and you settle in and the new becomes the daily I think people's focus change, they made new friends and have established social circles and...frankly time moves on and the people with it. Did learn a lot from this site and hopefully my contributions gave someone just starting their journey an idea of what life is like on this side, but as mentioned by someone else, I also think my experience may be a bit dated when it comes to the visa process 🙂 On

  12. Hi Everyone, We finally landed in Brisbane on the 23rd of December. We are extremely grateful and lucky that we could get here with well-priced, economy class tickets, without one delay, cancellation, or being bumped off the flight due to the travel caps imposed by the Federal Government. The flight out of South Africa was a bit uncomfortable, but more because everything was different than what we are used to when traveling than the actual flight itself, it is still almost 9 hours to Doha. We had to wear face masks and face shields for the entire flight, a

  13. @ThatMorneGuy congrats! We landed in Brisbane on the 23rd of December and currently we are in Hotel Quarantine near the Brisbane Airport. In order to prepare for your journey and get the latest information on what is happening with regards to flights, entry requirements, caps etc.. do yourself a favour and join the following Facebook groups if you haven't already. (There is a lot of information there, some might annoy you, others might be valuable, use your own judgement, always fact check and if you use a travel agent make sure they are reputable!)

  14. If I (Wayne) may add two strategic things to consider to this I'd say focus on highlighting the skills and experience that make you stand apart from the sea of generic workers, while also considering how to get around the psychological biases many recruiters have. Similarly don't dismiss recruiting agents out of hand. For example, I've recently gotten a job as a system accountant that obviously isn't your stereotypical accountant. To this end I highlighted my IT/Business Intelligence and project experience for this as I quickly realised I was otherwise going up against a sea of oth
