Hi katerina, how long did it take for you to get the RSMS approval from the time you submitted to the time it was approved? Did your husband have an employer nomination?

I ask because we are due to move in December, and our RSMS 119 was submitted July 14. I'm hoping our visa is approved before our move date!

Hi,

I have a family of 4, and would be interested to find out if we qualify for permanent migration. I am retired from my occupation as a explosive blasting contractor, for quarry, mining, tunneling, site preparation, and demolition works for 26 years. I had my education in New Zealand. My wife was the Personnel Officer in a finance company, but left to handle my admin and accounts in my company. She had her education in New Zealand. I have 2 daughters, 30 and 26, graduates from Curtin in Accounting and Finance, CPA, with 7 years and 4 years working experience in audit, tax, and corporate accounts.

We intend to be located in Western Australia if successful. What are our chances?

Richard

Hi Katerina,

My wife and I are 62, and financially independent. We are Malaysian of Chinese origin. My wife and I already have several close relatives who are PR/Citizens of Australia. Thank you for showing an interest in our quandry.

Richard

Hi birder, we are using an agent and she said that first stage was approved inJuly( my husband signed the contract and the employer gave him the nomination) she sent that for approval then we were waiting for ages for him todo the IELTS and our visa was only lodged 2 weeks ago! she said that it will take aproximately 8 weeks. Have you done the medical already?

Hi Richard , I saw a program on TV about a retired couple from UK who retired to Oz if I am not mistaken they paid 40000 £ for their visa and had to prove that they had enough money to live there, so it is def possible. I think the best thing to do is find a good agent and they should find out all the options available to you!
Hope it goes well for you
Good luck

Yes, we did our medicals in early August. They were paper medicals because we are in NZ and they don't have any doctors who do the e-medicals.
