Smile Assurance of Support question

Hi There

We have just received a message from our assurer that they have been asked to lodge the bond money within 14 days - Does this mean subject to medical and police clearance we are in??? Please tell us yes!!!

We are hoping to get to sunny Brisbane next July/August and would love to hear from anyone else going out that way....

Hi

We applied 15 May main application, skilled, and received a letter from DIMIA end of August saying that they would get in touch with our assurer. He received a letter 1 October saying payup within 14 days.

We were pre July so I dont know what difference that makes to the time etc

Good luck with your application

Hi

Do you know if you have a case worker? Our bond has been lodged but we have been told it may be sometime before we are alloacated a case worker.

We have applied for our pcc and go for our medicals 1/12/04 so DIMIA will have everything before xmas..... hopefully we'll have our visa's early next year

Good luck

The bond money is usually the last thing they ask for, so it looks like the green light for you guys.

Good Luck

Hi Jan

Thanks for that but the strange thing is we havn't a case worker so when I e mailed DIMIA they said our application hadn't been assessed yet but they were getting the assurance money first! The good thing is they did say in the unlikely event of a visa not being issued they would refund the money.

And the time before it gets passed to a case worker.......... it maybe a long time!

The wait is agony!

Where are you going to? are you being sponsored?

July/Aug in Brisbane almost equals mid-winter. Cool nights (for us - a doona
might be required) but beautiful days with clear blue skies. Seas warm
enough for non-Queenslanders to swim. Little/no rain during winter because
we get our main rainfall in summer months (together with the occasional
severe storm). No problem once you are used to them. We are now heading
into summer and today's Max temp was just over 28oC with 75% humidity.
Unleaded petrol approx 95c per litre (less 4c litre if you usesupermarket
saver dockets). "Experts" tipping fuel prices to stay at these higher
prices. Has been up to approx $1.05pl. Meat prices high at present because
of widespread drought. Rump steak could be up to about $28 per kilo everyday
price - but drop to about $10 (or less) on special. On UK trip, we noticed
our prices similar to UK but in $Aust instead of English pounds.
