wannabewallaby Posted July 20, 2008 Report Share Posted July 20, 2008 Hi all!I've joined the forum a week ago and have been taking in all I've read - what a great source of information! Thanks!We have decided to go Down Under quite some time ago - I applied for all the documentation in August 2005 and received the last document (unabridged marriage certificate) in February 2008! Seems one need a lot of patience!! According to Home Affairs our three little boys were born out of wedlock! I had to send them the document we signed in church 12 years ago in order for us to be put on the register!I have written my IELTS on 28 June (after I booked in January!) and my husband will be doing his this coming Saturday (26 July). We want to go to Melbourne or Adelaide and must still decide which route to follow, 457, 176 or a student visa. While on the topic of the STUDENT VISA, I understand if I do my master's it entitles my husband to work? Apparently the application fees are inexpensive and the student visa does not take that long to get - the only difficulty is that you must prove you have sufficient funds to last a year... Once in Oz with a student visa or a 457 (my husband is in IT, so let's hope!), we will apply for PR.As I have said, we have three little boys (4, 5 and 7 - the worst is over!!) and the reasons for going is therefor quite obvious!I would love to join Bloem's Coffee Club, but with the 4vannemerwes gone and the Wepener Warboel on their way, I do not know who else wannebewallabies??Thanks for all the info and the great support you give one another!Bye! - Wannabewallaby Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
