Must be an amazing feeling. Hopefully you'll be able to keep those of us who are applying this time up to date as you go through the move.

All the very best when the time comes.

There was a slight wee delay on my visa because there was a duplicate of something that wasn't picked up on their end. When I say delay I still got my visa granted within the month. The process as a whole is fairly fast. I submitted my application in May last year and if my visa hadn't been delayed I would have been in the same course as HB!

Right that's the application done. The two statements written, rewritten, double checked, amended, added to, rewritten again...... and finally done. Be sent as soon as my neighbour can do the needful and scan for me. Hopefully tomorrow. One mouse click away from the first little step down the path.

Can anyone help with what the process is for schools? If we are lucky enough to be successful I was just wondering if applying for school places would be something to look into before going over or arrange once you are over there? My only real concern would be getting my son into a school whilst husband is in training but then having to relocate again once posted to station?! I would be grateful if anyone has any experience with this

Random Bird. If (and a big If at this early stage I suppose!) myself and mine get the yes vote, we will also have to look at this as we've two little uns of primary school age. Our thoughts at the moment, without looking too far ahead of ourselves, would be for me to go on ahead and for the family to come on out after I've finished training and know whereabouts I'm stationed. The idea being that the short term pain of a few months separation will be offset by some stability for her and the kids straight upon arrival for them. Longer term rental, car, knowing what area they're in for looking at schools etc.

Hi.
You will probably get a comprehensive answer if you post on the main forum.

Just looking at your time line there Pincher, why so long for Visa application? Is that normal?

Are you serving as a cop in WA now?

Hi.
Re the link. Just go to the main Australia forum and post what you want to know there. Plenty of really good peeps with loads of good, helpful advice.

It took 8 months for my visa as I am privileged to be married to an Ozzie and that was for a spouse visa. From looking at previous posts, if you're successful for the relevant work visa the process takes around a month.

Not serving in WAPol yet. I missed out on the summer campaign, so when my visa was granted in October I applied under the Lateral entry scheme. I went out in Feb and passed the selection process. I THINK I'm through and waiting for a start date but WAPol aren't giving anything away. Just sitting tight at the moment.
