Heads up to those that need their police clearance check done in the Calgary area....

went to the Commissionaries as this is the place the RCMP uses for finger prints

make sure you book an apt as I went this morning only to be told that due to the high volume of checks they're processing they are booking apts and do not take walk ins....

I kindly told the lady that I wished there was some sort of information on their website as I drove there for nothing in this stormy blizzard (not really but it is snowing lots ) and since I had the day off I wanted to get this done and over with.....she was not very helpful either....so I booked the apt for next week

so make sure you make an apt

*sigh

Is there anything else in the area?

I found 3 in Calgary, or in the surrounding areas. Just be glad you don't have to go to Lethbridge.

thank you so much for the info. I thought the Commissionaires was the only place for the Calgary area. I checked online and managed to get an apt from one of the other two that happen to be open on Saturdays

Perfect.

There was a few, I just couldn't link the screen shot I took for whatever reason.

Hi, new user here and first post!

Hoping to get some info/direction, this seems like a good place to start! I've been searching the forums a bit but can't seem to find anything..

My wife and I are looking at the 309 subclass Partner Visa to get myself over to Australia by sometime next year. She will be my sponsor and she is an Australian citizen.

I noticed on the Department of Home Affairs website that it says the sponsor has to provide proof they "usually live in Australia" but we have been living together in Calgary for over the last 5 years. How does this affect our application? From my research so far this is the only way we would be able to obtain Australian PR for myself, is it not?

Any help or direction with this would be greatly appreciated. Even just something to let us know we are on the right track with the 309 would be huge!

Thanks for reading.

Happy to be corrected, but pretty sure if the sponsor is an Australian citizen, it should not matter where they live at time of application. PR holders who are sponsoring may be a different story.

I am the sponsor (Australian citizen) of my fiance whos from Germany. I lived overseas and in Canada for the last 3 years (also at time of application), and my partners visa was granted with no issues.

That requirement is for permanent residents. As an Aussie citizen, she doesn't need to worry about it. I would still show my intent to live together in Australia in the future, if I were you. Even if it's as simple as discussing in the personal statements the reason for moving to Australia.

Depending on your occupation, you can look at skilled work visas. They are cheaper and faster to get PR versus partner visa route. I don't know much about those though but a good place to start is researching the eligible occupations.

If you go partner visa route, be sure to mention you want to be considered for long term relationship. It allows you to skip the 2 year waiting period for PR and get the 100 assessed and granted when the 309 is assessed and granted.

nothing at my end.

Application status "received" has not changed. We lodged Nov 7, 2017 and I noticed after they did their fix last week when I log into my account it says "last update Nov 17, 2017" when we haven't updated a thing....except for letting them know I will be traveling to Australia in a couple of weeks for a short vacation. But that was done last week in Feb 2018.

I did my medicals and they seem to have received that.

I'm not expecting any news any time soon

that said I did my police check and waiting to get it in the mail in order to upload it.

Hope someone else gets the good news soon
