We are in the process of a 176 application. Have had medicals requested in last 2 weeks.
We have an 18 year old daughter who is currently at college doing A levels. She is due to take her exams June this year. She then wants to go to Uni, but is taking a year out, as we are expecting our visa hopefully soon!! The intention is that she will start her Uni life in Austalia when we get there.
Now im worried because Visa progress seems to have slowed down and with recent talk of lack of visa allocation remaining- its possibly unlikely we will get our visa before 1.7.10, when the new visa year starts.
Where do we stand with her being dependent? Our CO has already aknowledged her as a dependent and the online status for evidence shows 'met'. Her college letter as evidence stated she would be in full time education until June 10.
If our visa isnt issued until after this ( if we get the go ahead that is), will her dependency be taken from application date??
Im seriously considering getting her to sign up to another college course for 12 months, just so we can prove she is still dependent. This is really a waste of time, as we hoped to be in Oz by christmas and college wont start until Sept.
We dont want any reason at this late stage for DIAC to turn us down.
Any one got any knowledge on this??
