Hello Everyone,

My family and I just moved to Brisbane. We are currently lodged at the accomodation provided by our sponsors but we will be out in a few days. Found a great apartment at Kedron, so the only headache/heartache/bodyache now is childcare fees - izz doing my heart somehow. We are not PR holders so you know how it is. Heard there are some family day care in Sydney that are cheaper than the regular pre-schools but the cheapest we've found here in Brisbane is $100per day. Please guys, I'm open to your experiences, advice and recommendations on this - PR or non PR holders.

Thank you.

Good day everyone, I want to enquire for a friend. His Australian girlfriend wants him to come over for marriage, though the girlfriend is willing to come to Nigeria first for a visit.

1. What category of visa do you think he would need to visit Australia

2. What do you think it's best, should the marriage take place here in Nigeria or Australia.

3.Can he apply for Partner visa while on tourist stream visa in Australia if the marriage is held here in Nigeria.

4. What documents would he need to apply for the visa.

5.With the conditions stated above, what other options do you suggest?

I look forward to your response seniors in the house.

Will help you out on this

First if his girlfriend is from Africa then he got more advantage than white girls cos immigration normally thinks that we wants to marry their girls for citizenship but that should not discourage him to proceed if he knows the relationship is genuine and he had a lot supporting documents. Back to your questions.

1. I think he can visit Australia with Tourist if he has enough supporting documents or prove that he will return back or his girlfriend can visit Nigeria or they can meet in Dubai. Immigration will love to see meetings together/ evidence of relationships in the future when applying for partner visa (Subclass 820) to come here

2. Marriage can take place anywhere but what really matters is your supporting documents/ prove of genuine relationship. My advice meet in Nigeria get enough supporting documents before thinking of marriage don’t cos it does not guarantee you visa if you don’t have enough supporting documents cos with marriage if you have enough proof and supporting documents that you in s genuine relationship you can get a partnership visa to come here.

3. I won’t advice go to apply for tourist visa while waiting for partnership visa to be decided the immigration might look it like desperation to come here and if they refuse you it might have disadvantage on your partnership visa application so what you need is patience, meet in other countries or if she can come to Nigeria and she ok then fine

4. She can visit Nigeria embassy in Canberra for more information and also you will give her supporting documents to submit before they grant her visa, my advice again both of you can meet in another country easy

5. There no option here the truth is get all original documents and enough documents of a continue genuine relationship, proof of communication and proof that you doing well in Nigeria as you not marrying her to come here. There some cheap countries you can meet like 2-3 times before applying and lastly be patient and get enough documents for your application

Good Luck

Thank you for the advice, I will relate same to him. They both agreed she's gonna come to Nigeria first. I would advice him to also meet in Dubai after the visit to Nigeria as you adviced to be able to convince the VO that the relationship is actually a genuine one.

Thank you for your response. I have spoken to him, and he said she would come to Nigeria, then after about 3 or 4months later they would also meet in Dubai then later do a visit to somewhere cheap again before they eventually get married because the relationship is a genuine one as both of them are of same age.

1. What are the likely documents they need to prove genuine relationship.

2. After the above trips, what kind of visa do you feel he should apply for first, visit or spousal.

3. What is the likely length of time before decision is made on spousal visa or visit visa

Thank

1. You need evidence of communication ( phone call records) emails, pictures together, how she/you gave supported each other financially, emotionally, spiritually and physically. 3-4 witness of relationship fro friends and family for both of you, documents from you about your job, education back ground, statement of what you have been doing since primary school till date because they need to profile you that you responsible this Will help you. 8,000 plus AUD for visa fees and you can get more information from their website on partnership visa subclass 820

2. Why applied for visit when you guys have been meeting each other in different countries, no time to waste apply for spouse visa at once cos it might take 1-2 years to make a decision for your visa. If refused she can appeal here which will take another 8 months to 1 year and u will pay 3,000 to 4,000 for appeal. So get as many documents you, your religious leaders can also give you a statement about you and also your employer and local government too anything documents that can help to profile you well

3. Don’t know about tourist but spouse visa is 1-2 years as of 2014 you will also see the duration on their website. Visit their website to see more details.

Good luck

That the process because most people normally do arranged marriage not only Africa’s but other countries so they have to make everything difficult for everyone both genuine ones

I already got my PR here and if the babe or bobo got tired then is not a genuine relationship because who really love you will be patience and do anything to be with who they love also Australia visa is more difficult to get than USA visa

Lots of immigration laws are changing now I heard if you bring your partner here on subclass 820 Visa you must put the person on your will and utility papers so it will discourage scammers that get paid to bring people here

Mine is a 2yr visa. I didn't register with any of the above. Just PRs can I think. I was told after 3years with same employer you can apply for PR using the employer as sponsor. I haven't considered PR yet.
How did you apply for the job?
What website did you use?
Did you have work experience prior to that time?
What is your profession?

Sorry for so many questions?

Thanks. Background is Mechanical Engineering. Work experience has been in metal fabrication as a Quality Assurance and control professional. My Quality Assurance experience is also very relevant to a lot of industries like manufacturing and the likes.

I honestly can't say the 5 page CV affected applications negatively. I know for a fact that most recruiters here use ATS (Applicant tracking System) software to review CVs of hundreds of applicants. This basically searches applicant's CVs for keywords relevant to the job descriptions for the roles advertised. So whether your CV has just 1 page or 5 pages, so long as the keywords match for the roles advertised, you should be shortlisted. I was very concerned I wasn't getting as many call backs as expected. But the general advice here even from people who have been in the industry for a while is to keep your CV concise.

Key advice from me is that all new applicants should not just apply indiscriminately for jobs. Your job applications must be targeted. Read job descriptions and tailor your CV to suit the requirements of the role so long as it is in your field and you have the experience. Some people even go as far as lifting the job description from the role advertised and just make slight modifications to their CV. This will most likely help you pass the ATS screening and increase your chances of getting an invitation for interview.

These are key areas prospective migrants and new arrivals should be paying attention to. I noticed a good number of people only want to see pictures and read about the beautiful stories about holidays and the road trips. My people, your first few months in this country can be quite tough ooo. Pay attention to the key details you need to navigate the job market here. Don't let reality hit you unprepared grin grin grin

Brotherly I greet you. Just a quick one. I’m working on relocating as well. I’m a QC welding inspector with AWS Certification. Are there good enough chances of getting an inspection job over there? Also, which state or province would you recommend I move to based on my career?

I know a lady who can take care of your baby for 30$ per day but you ain't in Sydney.
Use her sometimes when I have to go drop my baby on a public hols.
