Any other single parents on the migration route?

Recommended Posts

The school was fairly easy to sort. I contacted them prior to arriving then popped in and got the enrolment forms and she was in within a few days. They just needed to see a copy of passport and visa.

It's good you know people, I didn't know anyone so it was quite daunting.

The time will fly by and before you know it you ll be here n we ll be organising a meetup for a well deserved drink.

My advise ... Start organising now lol. I think I dilly dallied n at the end was running around like a headless chicken. X

Hi there @elliew76


yes I mean you need to get the visa granted before he becomes non dependant and you have a valid visa for 5 years (I'm sure it's 5years - as long as you activate it in time)


just think- you apply for visa and your kid is 16 you go and activate it but don't migrate for 3 years your kid is then 19 - it doesn't matter they have the visa to migrate.


You can focus on getting the visa and then sort your registration out- just make sure you get visa granted while he is under 18 or still dependant


keep us posted on your top up success




Thanks @wee_me :)

I didn't realise that! I thought that we only had until he turns 18 to get out there, otherwise him being on my visa would be invalid? But you mean as long as I get my visa for the 3 of us we can still move out there even if he has turned 18? Is that right? 

Ive got my positive Anmac and have applied for Ahpra already, didn't realise things had changed with them until I'd already sent it off :( hoping my specialist nursing post reg modules will swing it but not hopeful :/

i applied for the visa in August, just waiting for my co and then will do my PCC and Meds.

If it wasn't for this ahpra issue I would be almost there!

Glasgow have replied saying they will be in touch and I will

look at Robert Gordon's too. I didn't think to look in Scotland thanks for the tip! X
