My name is Saptarshi and I am currently residing in Perth. My coming to Australia was by chance. I commenced my doctoral degree at University of Auckland in New Zealand. On completion of my qualifiers (a form of examination to determine if you are eligible to continue further for Ph.D.), my research advisor told me that he was going overseas for 2 weeks. The 2 weeks turned to 4 and there was still no sign of him. Finally, he retuned almost after 5 weeks and called me to his office to tell me that he was moving to Monash University. I soon followed him there and finished my doctoral degree in August 2008. I subsequently applied for a 485 visa (for a very specific reason, which I will discuss later) and then for my 885 visa on November 2008. I was granted my residency on 24th Nov 2009. However, I had got my confirmation as early as July 2009. I will explain the reason for this delay in some other post. I got information about this forum while performing a MARA agent search (in relation to spouse/family visa concerns) and I am glad to have found this forum in addition to the contact details of Mr. Mark Northam.
