I am so lucky to have been granted a state sponsored permanent VISA to Australia. I read the details of the VISA grant notice and it clearly said "you" must visit Australia before January 10 2013. So off I went taking my husband with me for company to Australia. My two children (aged 6 & 2) stayed with Grandma back in the UK.
When I got home, I was researching Adelaide and came across this site and nearly fainted ! What I didn't realise was that I needed to take the Children with me as well!
The truth is I simply can not afford to go again and move to Australia next summer. I'd love to go back - I didn't want to leave but finding another 6k to go again just isn't possible.
I have contacted the Adelaide migration team who say that that unless we all go before January then the children's VISA's will be canceled.
If anyone has any suggestions of what to do next I would be so grateful. I'm not sure if an immigtation consultant might be able to help.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, I'm a bit at a loss at what to do next and heartbroken at my stupidity is not the word!!!
