We sent our app off on June 1st by interparcel. It's apparently in Melbourne as I write this! We are a family of 5 (3 children- 5,3 and 1) hoping to go to Adelaide. We are applying for a 136 visa (modl) and are looking to go next summer.

We have never been to Aus before and sometimes I think we are crazy but what the hell!

Anybody else applying this month? (I've tried to fill in Karen Colebeck's spreadsheet but I couln't get it to work)
hi Mands, as you said to some one else, here we go again, we're waiting for agent to say all ready to go, he's had stuff a while now so shouldn't be long to send off to Aus. now and then we can get on June applicants. Was hoping for may but not to be, seems so long now since TRA in april. Would love to join spreadsheet asap!!! All best to every one, Babs

Good luck to us all! May all of our applications miraculously appear at the top of every pile!
Hi both - I'm not a June 2007 applicant - just about to send off qualification assessment however I am a secondary English teacher and heading for Brisbane. Just sending my best wishes and I'll keep my eye out to see how you are getting on. Do you have employment yet, or are you waiting for the Visa before applying?
Good luck

Posted Visa Application to our Agent (Go Matilda) 1st Class recorded on 2nd of June 07 so hopefully it will be on its way down under soon, now the really long wait starts!!!

We are planning to go to Melbourne as we have lots of family there unless we can be tempted to Sydney by work or other family and freinds, we will have to wait and see.

Applying for a MODL 136 visa as Plumber/Supervisor Plumber.

Good luck Everyone

Good luck
I haven't got any jobs lined up as I'm not sure when I'll be moving out to Oz. I've applied for the visa already as I needed to apply before I was 30, but I'll need to clear some debts before I can make the big move. At least I'll have the time to look at areas, jobs, etc & I won't have to sell my house before I know I've got the visa! I have I've worked with a couple of people from Oz though, so I have a chance of getting my 'foot in the door' when I need to (hopefully!!).

Good luck with your steps through the process!

Just received an acknowledgement e-mail. It lists the documentation still outstanding and the only thing they are waiting for is the medical, which should be on it's way to them.

Hi All,

We are hoping to head to Perth area with our 4 sons, 19, 17, 15 & 10 as we have family there. OH is a Welder, was advised at the Skills Expo in Dublin Oct 06 that applying using the STNI 137 visa would be the quickest option for us. Not sure how accurate that one was

TRA assessment back, mid Feb 07. STNI approval 8th March and visa sent 29th May, received 4th June. PCC sent with application (what a relief) trying to keep 3 teenagers on the straight and narrow long enough They are delightful really!

It's good to see that others are going through the same as us, I swear I will be grey haired if we ever get there. Our next worry is when to put the house on the market. How long do you get after a visa is issued before you need to travel? As it would cost us a bob or two for a validation trip.

Hi Karen can you please add us to your June list. Our lovely agent has just couriered off our application today. We're hoping to move to Brisbane, hubbby is going as a joiner and we've applied for 136 MODL, yep we've used an agent and no we haven't front loaded meds or PCC. We are currently renting a house. many thanks, Babs.
