Mexico HELP

Hello there! I am Amy and I am from Mexico.
I met my fiance in London in 2007 but we have been together for more than 2 years now. I came back from Australia a month ago because I couldnt extend my tourist visa. We are now engaged and in the process for this visa. He Is an Australian citizen. Because we lived in London I need a police check from there which I'm still awaiting for it. My application is ready to be sent. But my question is being Mexican and being from a high risk country. How long is going to Take for this visa to be approved, we are so desperate to be together as we missed each other like crazy.

Hi there.. once you applied for it, it takes 3 months.. but once you send all documents..I sent all of them at the same time..
I wish you the best..

Yes i really understand..my fiance almost had to get an fbi check because he was living in the states but good thing it wasnt for more than 12 months!

Its hard being apart we have been through so much as i can imagine you have too..but it makes us stronger..my advice is be patient & it will all be worth it! I was living in Mexico for 8 months but had to come bak to Aussie to do my part for his visa...i love your country too :) What part are u from?

Hi Kari nice to meet you, welcome to the forum :) What office did you apply for your visa? Which kind of visa did you apply? Hopefully if you applied in September it should only be a couple more months! As you supplied all the correct evidence & forms, checks you should be fine..have you heard from the embassy or a CO yet at all?

Me & my fiance uses Skype also almost everyday hehe it really helps!

Buena suerte con todo hehe..keep us updated!

I wish both the best of the lucks with your visas this year, you are not far to get it, at the end every step is worth it to be with the person you love. I love this site because we can talk about our frustations. Tijuana I am very impressed that you liked it. I am from the North actually. Los Mochis, I lived there for 15 years, it is only two hours from Cd Obregon. I have friends there. Best Mexican food ever!

Surely will be heaps of latinos in Sydney. We will settled at least for the NeXT two years up to Darwin, harder for me, no Latinos there, but I dont care as long as Im with him. I loved Darwin By the way, it's lovely. I know a lot of aussies will say: Darwin? Really?

Thats great. There's also alot of good jobs there :) I haven't been there before but Ive always wanted too & to see Ayers Rock & the canyons. Thats good you can get settled...& if you've been there before you will already have some freinds. The main thing is your partner..you will be happy & wont have any distance..that will be the best thing!

Hi girls~

I'm from Mexico too (Tijuana actually!), but I'm living in Australia with my husband now - almost 2 years since my visa application was approved. If there's anything I can help you guys with, contact me :) I sure know how hard it is to find some info from Mexicans moving to Australia. Have a good one and good luck!
