    Hi CCMS,

    I am applying for a Return Resident Visa subclass 155 as my current 190 subclass visa expire in Jan 2019. After being granted my 190 subclass visa in 2014, when I was in UK, I attained British citizenship but I only got my British Passport after I came to Australia. When I tried to update the british passport details via Form 929, the 929 triage team suggested that I should leave my Australian PR on my Indian Passport as I might face problems which travelling overseas if I transfer the Aussie PR to my british passport. They also suggested that I should update the british passport details once I apply for my return resident visa. But now when I go to apply online, I am asked to enter information about the Indian passport on which the aussie PR visa was issued. It does not give me an option to enter my british passport details.

    Any suggestions on how to remedy this would be highly appreciated?

    Hi CCMS,
    I am currently on a 500 Student Visa which is only due to expire in 2021. Because I withdrew from my studies Mar 2018 and needed to apply for another Visa within 28 days I have lodged a partner visa ( de-facto Nov2014) because I was unaware of the fact that cancellation of my student visa would also cancel my BVA, making me unlawful etc.
    -I then went to see an immigration lawyer, who told me to leave the country, wait until my student visa is cancelled or they except my voluntary cancellation, then apply for a shorter visa preferable the ETA, come back to Australia and ask for reinstallation of the BVA.
    -I phoned the department of home affairs and they said because I applied for another Visa within the 28 days, I am not unlawful and should wait for the department to decide if they will cancel my student visa.
    more detail at thread:

    I received my ACS results in March with my experience to be relevant from Aug 2009 to date...statutory declarations were submitted for all my current company I joined recently (October 2017) and don't want verification to be done as they will not vouch for me and I don't want them to get a hint of can I mark my most recent experience as not relevant in visa filing and proceed...I will still have 8 years of experience for 15 points based on the previous job that can be counted until August 2017............(I received positive assessment for current job)...

    Also, I had filed my EOI under 189, ICT BA last week marking current job as relevant and received an invite with a score of 80.
    a) Should I withdraw my current EOI and file a new one marking current job as non - relevant
    b) Should I file a new ACS and show the current job as non-relevant
    c)Any other options?

    Hi CCMS, A query please an thought you would answer it..
    Can I include both my parents and my mother in law in my PR Visa application..
    Also, my mother in law has been travelling to Australia frequently in the recent past(to her son-my wife's husband) and has stayed with us physically only for about 2 months in total. Can we show her as a dependent and include her in my PR application.. Please advise as we are highly confused and worried..
    Kind Regards,

    Hi Mate,

    That post from Bvdberg with the 2 year old kid, seems complicated and costly to me.

    Is it on the high end of the life is shit scale to sort out or not so bad?

    This type of stuff I am happy to part with some cash to help out.

    Hi, with a multiple entry ETA, there are 2 expiry dates to consider.

    The validity date of the ETA (12 months ?) and the stay period (3 months ?).

    If she departs Australia before the stay period (normally 3 months) expires, the ETA will not not necessarily cease and if she comes back on the ETA, another 3 month stay period will start.

    If she stays beyond the 3 months, the ETA will cease and the bridging visa will come into effect.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks Nick, apparently your inbox is full, so posting here.

    Since the trip is before the 3 months stay period expiry, and the BVB is in effect within those 3 months, does it supersede the ETA when she returns?

    Also, what does she put on the arrival card?
