Hey my names leah im super new to this site and ive just discovered you all in my last month here in adelaide! oh well I was wondering if anybody could offer me any help at all!

 

im here on a working holiday visa and I have to head back to the uk to finish my studies and i hope one day to make australia my home but until then i hav elots to be getting on with. The reason I came to oz was to stay with my fiance and now her mum has decided to move back to the uk so I been doing research into shipping containers etc and flying the pets back but its taking forever to hear back from people. I Am slowly reading through all the other discussions in this section but I have one main thing i need help with. My fiance is australian born, her parents are scottish and live here in oz. however she just applied for a Uk passport and got it (yay) however i have now heard that she has to live in the uk for 3 years before this passport is worthwhile? so what Im getting at is will she need to apply for a visa to work in the uk? sorry for rambling on its so much info to get through all at once but any help from anyone would be perfect!

 

thankyou!!

I think if you have a UK passport then you'd be just fine :) Does she physically have the passport? If so I can't imagine what would stop her working in the UK as any UK citizen.

thakyou for replying, yes she does have the passport. It was just an afterthought because to study in the uk and be classed as a uk citizen she had to have lived in the uk for 3 years? Im still not sure I think im gonna have to sit on hold for hours trying to talk to immigration!

The British passport is valid from day 1, she is a British citizen and she is able to work as soon as she arrives in the UK. If she wants to attend University then she may be classed as an international student because she has not been resident for the last three years. To get answers around this though you need to talk to the Uni that she will be attending and not immigration. I would think if she wants to study at a further education college then they would also have rules around residency, but again the best place to speak to would be the college she wants to attend.

Agree with the above. She'll have working rights etc from the off.

 

I think she'd be classed as an international student though as you have to have been resident in the UK for 2 or 3 years to be able to qualify for the student stuff. However, don't bother asking immigration, read the education websites and contact the uni or colleges direct (or read their websites re international students etc).

      Hi all,   I am 21 years and 2 months old, currently pursuing bachelor of engineering at Adelaide University (third year). I am on a 489 Visa here. Its been 2 years since we have moved to Australia and we have satisfied all the conditions of the 489 visa. We will be applying for the 887 Visa now. I live with my parents and am financially dependent on them for my international tuition fees and other needs. Currently 887 visa processing time is ranging from 19 -22 months, I are bothered due to such a long processing time period. Because it's mentioned on DIBP website that A child who turns 23 while your application is being processed and who does not meet these ( dependent ) requirements cannot satisfy the criteria for this visa. Will there be any exception regarding the above highlighted portion since I was granted an eligible 489 visa as a family unit? Can anyone please clarify, your opinion will be highly appreciated.   Best Regards Hamza Khan

      Hi All, being on 489 visa can we visit New-Zealand or we need tourist visa?
      For tourists visa do we have to get it done from our home country or from Australia?
      At last, if we want to visit Europe from Australia(while on 489 visa), from where I will apply Schengen visa, Australia or home country? 
      if someone had similar experience and want to share their perspectives/thoughts please:)

      Hi everyone,
      Thanks for clicking on this message and apologies if it's not appropriate for this board. 

      If you're a US citizen or lived there previously and then obtained/applied for your PR in Australia, you can definitely provide help.

      I'm preparing for my PR application which includes police check, and unfortunately I need to reapply for the State police check since the one I used before has expired. State of California requires "original" fingerprint form (FD 258) only. It would be fascinating if I can get one in Australia because this will make the process much faster than waiting for it to arrive from the states. 
      Do you happen to have some leftover or know anyone who might have the form? I'll happily provide compensation. Lots of time an money can be saved if I get this single sheet of card without waiting.. 

      I'll look forward to hearing positive responses! 
      Thanks so much for reading. Have a wonderful one 🙂
