    Hello Very Stormy and Rossy

    Hi Camilla, We’re new to the forum and relatively new to the idea of uprooting and heading over the Perth. You certainly seem like the perfect lady who could help us! How can we get in touch? Do you offer initial consultations? Thanks, Jack

    A cheap deal sounds good Ali. I've only been there for a day trip and loved it. Would be great to spend a night or two [emoji4] Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    Young Family, hoping to make the move

    Hi all! Myself, my wife (both 24) and our two boys ages 2.5 and 9months are hoping to make the move to Perth! We were actually in the process of applying for our Canadian visa to emigrate to Alberta from South Wales. However, after more and more research on the job market in Alberta and finally getting in touch with a friend who lives over there (not great feedback which is always slightly off putting) we’ve centred our research on Perth. I’ve put another post on the British Expat forum but there are a lot of negative replies regarding moving to Perth as it’s been in a recession for years now and that wages are a lot lower than we were expecting. We’ve based our expectations from jobs found on Seek and Indeed so far? I’m sure I’ll be posting with a lot of questions soon enough but for now I just thought I’d introduce myself and the family! Cheers, Jack

    It was on the news that they're worried the Rottnest brand has been tarnished by being used for quarantine - hopefully there may be some cheap deals in the future, cheaper to holiday in Bali than Rotto.

    189 PR Expirying - RRV

    It runs from the day it is granted. Also, I don’t understand the bit in your original comment about it giving you another 5 years. It doesn’t. It gives you the length of the rrv. So, if you are granted a 3 month rrv, you have 3 months. Even if you make the move in that time, you would need a further rrv even to go on holiday outside Australia until you qualify for citizenship

    804 Visa

    Shouldn't be too long - we tend to see BVAs granted within a week of the 804 visa application being delivered to the PVC. Good luck! Best regards.

    870 Temporary Visa

    You can be in Australia when applying for an 870 visa if you have sought agreement to this when lodging the sponsor application. We've done this recently due to the COVID situation - our client is onshore in Australia with a visitor visa. Approval to apply for the 870 visa onshore was granted. Best regards.

    189 PR Expirying - RRV

    Hi, Thanks for the reply, I think that is what I will do. With regards to an RRV, does it run from the approval date of the RRV or does it start from the expiry date of the 189 PR? For example, if I applied for a 1 year RRV just now and it was granted - would I then have until 04/02/2022 (189 expires 04/02/2022) or would it be valid for 1 year from now? Thanks Scott

    189 PR Expirying - RRV

    I would run this past a agent as you do not meet the criteria to get an rrv at all. To obtain any rrv you need to have lived in Oz for 2 of the last 5 years or be able to show strong and ongoing ties.

    Mind you 14 days quarantine on Rotto sounds tempting! Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    Yeah we could have rearranged a flight and got in as PR, but I decided to hold on and let the jobs market pick up a little. Trying to relax a little and enjoy the weather in the UK! [emoji3508] Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk
  17. Hi All, So it has been ages since I posted on here and it looks like to forum has really slowed down, such a shame. Looks like I am not the only one that has not immigrated due to the downturn in industry. Anyway, I am looking for a bit of advise as my must not arrive date is 04/02/2021 and I can't see myself moving before then. I travelled to Perth in November 2016. I arrived in Perth on 13/11/2016 and departed 19/11/2016. I am now looking to apply for a RRV but it is likely that I will only get a 3 month RRV which is not much use to me. The condition of the RRV is that you must not of been outside Aus for more than 5 years so I am wondering if I should make a quick trip over before my 189 runs out in Feb next year. From what I know, that would then give me another 5 years where I could apply for a 3 month RRV. Is this correct? Thanks Scott

    804 Visa

    I think a lot of things are a bit in the air at the moment due to the virus. The bridging visa will come into place as soon as your current visa expires. You can check your current visa status on vevo

    Anyone waiting to migrate?

    I can imagine it sucks. As Stormy suggested there are flights, but I would wait a bit longer, unless you have a job lined up or you have a very high demand/specific skill. Things are slowly picking up again (business wise) but there is still a lot of mess to be cleared with a lot of jobless people. As I said, things are picking up again, so you will be fine. It's just a matter of not rushing into it imho.

    804 Visa

    Thanks for the reply. I know the processing time is very long. I was asking before the processing times they give an acknowledgement letter and receipt how much days it takes them to issue that letter and bridging visa ?

    804 Visa

    Given the processing time for this is in the decades I wouldn’t expect you to hear for a long time. The contributory visa is quicker, but be aware, it is still likely 8 years.

    804 Visa

    Hi All, I recently applied for the 804 Visa and it reached the Perth centre on 21st May 2020.

    There are flight to Australia and have been all the way through. Though highly limited. You will also need to quarantine for 14 days on arrival, but PR holders are allowed in.

    Anyone waiting to migrate?

    We had our one-way flights cancelled last month just as we were about to migrate to Perth and need to rebook at some point (sooner rather than later). Anyone else watching and waiting and hoping? [emoji3061] Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk
