arno&caroline Posted June 26, 2008 Report Share Posted June 26, 2008 I have been offered a job in Melbourne and they want me there middle to end of August if possible. My fiance and me are working through an immigration agent (Fiona Carre) and she seems to be very jacket up and on the ball (we are very impressed).The company in Melbourne's sponsorship seems to have been approved and yesterday my visa application was lodged (we have supplied heaps of documentation, but is still outstanding the odd one here and there). I am hoping that the visa will be approved in 5 to 6 weeks time, but want to hear from everybody out there how long theirs took and what they think was the reasons if there was a delay... i.e. South Africa takes 6 weeks to issue unabridged birth certificate, South Africa takes 6 weeks for new passport, the case officer want a declaration from your great aunt's brother's friend, etc.My fiance and me is very excited on the one side and "poep" scared on the other. It is easy to brag to everybody that you are thinking about moving to Australia, but it is another story to actually go through the process... In the end I think it will all turn out OK.Holding thumbs from PE... Arno and Caroline Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
