Welcome pinky I am Mexican too. I might need help in the future. I am still waiting for that piece of paper from London to lodge my application, so I havent sent it yet! Im lost and desperate. I have read so much stuff, but I guess as long as you have anything in order depends on how lucky you are with the processing times! Have a good year girls!

I had alot of time to do my research on these visas..now we wait!

How long did it take to get ur pmv..or did u go for the spouse visa?

So nice to meet you!!
Filipsenorita, I am living in Warrnambool, Victoria... !!!! It is pouring rain today, but the weather has been excellent all summer Where are you???

My husband (then boyfriend) had to learn a little bit of spanish too when he was in TJ with my family. Even though my family speaks english, my dad was adamant that he needed to learn spanish!! haha.

I didn't apply for a PMV, we decided to get married in Australia and then I came back home to Mexico and applied for a partner visa. It only took 6 weeks!!!!!!! How good is that???

How's your application going? It would be funny if I knew your fiance!

Oh I made the same mistake. I submitted the state police check and got knocked back and had to get the one from Mexico City! .. Otherwise I would have been approved a little bit quicker.

I have an idea where your fiance lives... but I live further away from that. I used live near the race track. Did you ever get a chance to go there?

Life in OZ is great, obviously it does take a while to get used to everything and finding work was hard at the beginning. But now everything is so much easier!!!! Tell your soon to be hubby not to stress in case he gets a bit homesick! Oh and also tell him to eat as many tacos as he can before he moves here :P

PS. Welcome anytime when you come to see the Great Ocean Road and the 12 Apostles!

Ohh the racetrack..I didnt quite know where you meant but I googled it & those streets look very familar like we passed there all the time :P

Haha I know what you mean about eating tacos..I bet he will miss good Mexican food from home..here is not the same. I miss it so much too. You know what..last time I was there for a week in November & I bought home lots of Mexican goodies..today I made like 4 burritos with frijoles & queso & it was soooooooo good..it makes me miss having breakfast there with my fiance

We will just be patient. Im staying up so I can call our CO first thing in the morning over there I have a few questions but hopefully the visa will be approve my the end of next week! Lets pray!

Maybe you guys did drive through there, back home that whole are is called "Hipodromo" does that ring a bell?

I'm glad you bought back all those goodies! I did the same when I moved here, and my parents have been constantly sending me things I ask for. hahah some of the bottled salsas, and candy and some cooking ingredients. So far customs hasn't taken anything out of the packages I've received so that is positive - You're in NSW no? I've heard there's a really good mexican restaurant called Guzman y Gomez, I didn't get a chance to go (because I didn't even know it existed!!) when I was in Sydney.

Let's hope your visa is approved next week!! I found that being in relatively constant touch with your CO helped. That kept me at the top of her list.. hahaha... I hope it works for you! I'm sure it will.

I do have a question, since when do the applications have to be submitted to Ottawa? When I did my paperwork I had to send it away to Washington DC. Why did they change this?

Hola! Yes Im in nsw..Im near Sydney. An area about an hour north called the central coast. Ohh yes Ive heard that restaraunt..its meant to be really good but Ive never been!!

Mmm hipodromo..i dont recall hehe i guess its because im not a local but ill ask my fiance. Oh i loveee Mexican foods..i am always craving for fish tacos..carne asada..posole, well all because its all so good! I promise my fiance we can go back every year..hopefully!

You know what..about why the applications are being processed in Ottawa now..we also sent ours to DC..this was August last year & we were told when they reveived our app, that in August they would change the processing location. DC mailed our application to Ottawa. And yes we were annoyed because it takes longer to process..i ask the call centre why & they said because that Canada unlike USA has similar laws to Australia ect so would make processing more quick- ha! That was a lie! Anyway..yesss I hope my fiance will get the grant soon..it will all be worth it

By the way have you visit any other parts of Australia too?

hahah Don't make me crave all that food please! I haven't eaten pozole since I moved here. I still make carne asada and fish tacos at home, the hubby loves them!

If that was the reason, then it was a complete fail! - Before I submitted my application to Washington, I was visiting the Embassy's website fairly regularly just to make sure that I had covered all my bases. And at the beginning, you were able to submit the paperwork to Mexico City - ... a few weeks later, they had an announcement that they no longer received paperwork for immigration visas, such as spouse, work, etc etc... and that they needed to be forwarded to the USA, I wonder now, why the USA doesn't do it..?? hmmm.. Oh well, just give the CO a call or email (I always emailed and got immediate answer).

We'll be in touch!!!

PS. I've only been all over Victoria, to Sydney, and the Whitsundays! - Our plan is to go to Adelaide soon for a few days I'm excited!
