    Hello Kazo,

     

    Well done on getting all the stuff together for the TRA. We are still waiting on a ref to register with the nursing board before we can even start to do the skill assesment thng.:(

     

    You sure gotta be patient to get that visa. Otherwise you'll go mad.

    Hi

     

    Thanks for your support. Just noticed how fast things are moving for you, hope ours progresses as quickly (smoothly would be nice too!), still got everything crossed.

    we also will post our tra the next few days :)

    you did really well with it taking only 'weeks'!! ours took roughly 2 months

    oh is electrical/mechanical engineer - but he applied as a fitter (seems to have been the easier of the two :eek:)

     

    good luck with things to come!

    Hi Kazo, my timelines are posted underneath. And I tell you what January seems like a long time ago, but by god it has flown. Positive TRA, Positive SA Sponsorship and waiting for the VISA. Only a month into the wait, so not that long. Considering whether to get medicals unrequested. Who knows.

     

    Patience is the key, but a difficult one at that. Good Luck.;);)

    Hi M

     

    Good luck with everything, Just collected all paperwork from solicitors, who agreed to certify it all, decided to take it all to agent in person, as couldn't cope if all went missing now. St Helens eh? That's where we are now!

    Hi Sarah, (mummyof2 also)

    My children are aged 4 (Emma) and aged 17-months (James) Emma starting school this September (boo hoo !) Just selected agents so at the very beginning of the process right now. Just looked at your timelines and they have moved fast haven't they. Hope all goes well for you too.

    What agent are you going with? We are using Go Matilda, they have been excellent so far, really helpful. But then that is what you are paying them for. When are you hoping to emigrate? We aren't looking at going until next summer, Elise due to start school here sept 08 so want to be gone before then.

    We are using Go Matilda too (Lorraine) in UK we are not sure when we are gonna go possibly around next spring/summer depends if husband gets a job we have some people we know out there right now and love it who work for the same company as husband does here. At least Emma would have only done the reception yr at school here then and we wanna go while they are still young.

    Good luck with the TRA, if it goes like ours you'll have your visa off in about 3 weeks! :) As soon as the TRA was posted Go Matilda had the visa forms sent to us within a week, they arrived while we where on holiday.

     

    How have you found Go Matilda, we can't complain about them at all, Shaun in Australia responded to every email the following morning and emailed straight away when TRA came back positive. Are you with Lorraine in the UK, she filled in all but 2 questions of the visa form for us - so easy. Well worth the money. ;)

     

    Good luck again.

     

    Sarah
