    Hey guys,

    We are not poms in adelaide, however we are an Irish couple living in Adelaide who have FINALLY received our visa grant notification letter last night!!!:biglaugh:

    We have to exit Aust to activate our visa but this is nothing after the hardships we have endured to get here!

    My name is Orla im 26, my partners name is Frank he is 30 and we have a 14month old son Alex. We are currently in Glengowrie very close to Glenelg and loving it.

     

    I am at home with the baby all day and was wondering if any of you would be interested in meeting up for a chat/coffee/playdate.

    So are any of you located close to us?? how r you settling in?

    Congratulations! Did you go on ENS or RSMS?

     

    I have heard conflicting arguments regarding the RSMS visa and whether you need to go offshore to validate it.

    We got a General skilled Migration Visa after a long wait. Received state sponsorship from SA and then applied for the PR visa.

    It prob only took about 6wks after we received state approval from Sa!

    as we began our application in Ireland it is considered offshore even though we are in Oz, therefore we must be outside Oz when it is finalised. it can only be finalised when we leave soonce thats done we will eventually be done with the stresses of relocating!!!
