    adopted children

    Hi Tab, Sorry for jumping on your post, I was just wondering how you got on as we find ourselves in the same predicament? Shaz
  5. Hi all, Hubby and I are dual citizens with Australia and UK and are in the process of moving back to Australia as soon as the adoption is approved for our 2 foster sons. We are looking for advise around the visa needed I am led to believe there area couple which will give them permanence but can take months to be approved, or the 802 visa which they would need to be in the country prior to applying. I have contacted a couple of migration agents and awaiting their guidance and help, just wondered if anyone had previously had to deal with this discriminatory red tape. It seems because they are not our sons by blood then it seems a lot harder and different routes to go to and because the UK is not part of the 13 country's listed as accepted then they do not qualify for citizenship? We are very wary of the time frames and want our boys to have the best chance in life and give them a brighter future. They are 12 and nearly 16. Can we move back as soon as the adoption is approved whilst waiting for the sub visa or whatever it is be approved? Or would we need to remain in the UK until it is all granted? Many thanks

    Medicare or Uk reciprocal agreement

    The reciprocal agreement is there to keep someone alive until they can go home to get treatment. So, it would not cover something like a hip replacement

    Thank you. I have sent you a message with their details. So is my understanding of the current guidance correct - that WA is not sponsoring offshore applicants for 190 visas? Thanks.

    Halls Head Pros and Cons

    Halls Head is lovely. A really nice beach and a good selection of shops and things. We lived a couple of suburbs down at Dawesville, both of which are part of mandurha. Which is a lovely small city and very pretty with everything you need. My advice is to get a short term rental for arrival and visit each area looking at properties as each area has a different feel. Before we moved, we had looked at a number of suburbs that we thought would be perfect for us, but when we went to look, the ones we thought were perfect were the ones we liked least and ended up in one we hadn't heard of. Do you have visas yet. What sort of jobs are you going to be doing as mandurha is a commute to Perth.

    That sounds a bit suspect. Are they MARA registered agents? If you message me their details I will have a look for you and if not, send details of agents that can be trusted.

    Covid 19 Impact

    Hi. I was hoping to get some advice on this point. I’ve been speaking to a registered migration agent about migration specifically to Perth. According to them we qualify for a 190 with 90 points for WA and have advised us to proceed with signing up to their service. However, my concern is on reading the WA website it still seems to state that they are only sponsoring 190 visas for people already residing in Australia and that a job offer is required (we aren’t in Australia and don’t have a job offer.) I’ve asked them for clarity on how we can apply given this guidance but they keep dodging the question. Is there additional information that migration agents know about offshore sponsorship for 190 visas that just isn’t published, or are they just working on the basis that they expect 190’s will be open for offshore applicants soon and hedging their bets? I’m really uncertain on whether or not to proceed. Any insights you could provide@verystormy would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    All visas are now open, however state sponsored can be hit and miss according to state and occupation. My advice would be to have a chat with a good registered migration agent.

    Thanks again for your feedback @verystormy Its been a while since I posted on here. In the UK I can see most of the covid restrictions are reduced now and I presume the rest of the world is opening up for business again. I have a friend in Perth who says due to the lockdowns in the last few years "now is a good time" to move to Australia and her company are actively sponsoring candidates. Do you reckon it would be a smaller, larger or about the same waiting list for skilled visas as it was before the pandemic in your opinion?
  26. Hello, we are visiting family in Perth Xmas 2022 and looking to house swap. We have a lovely 4 bed terrace house in SE London. Our family in Perth are in Edgewater. It would be great to hear if someone is looking to swap for a few weeks.
