Can't get rid of that. I'm Canadian, I'll find hockey in Australia.
I have a mate who plays on a pretty good team in Adelaide!

Air Canada Cargo is an option (especially if you'll be in Sydney/Brisbane)

I'm just waiting on the translation of my Italian Police Check, which I expect to have early this week. Then fingers crossed I get the golden email.

I would like to think how well put together my application is had something to do with it too.

Recently saw someone from Kuala Lumpur who had their visa processed in under 6 weeks time as well.

Hi everyone,

So good to see the amount of applications that have moved forward in the last month! Just a brief update - we were granted a 309 visa just over a month ago, despite being eligible for a 100 visa (together for over 4 years, married for 2).

On the encouragement of people here, we immediately sent letters to the DHA, the High Commission in Ottawa and even Peter Dutton's office, outlining our case and highlighting the language of 100 visa eligibility (our case officer insisted it was 3 years of marriage required, not 3 years in a long-term relationship.)

After radio silence for a month, this morning we received an IMMI grant letter for our 100 visa!

We want to thank the forum again, particularly those who encouraged us to appeal the 309 decision from the get-go. Writing letters actually works guys! We're not sure who got the ball rolling, as we sent out 5 copies to different channels...obviously one got through!

My wife and I are now in Sydney, enjoying the wonderful April weather, and will be celebrating her 100 visa status with a can of VB at Bondi Beach on sunset. Cheers!

I applied for a PMV 300 visa on June 13th 2017 and was granted my visa on April 3rd. We were nervous because I had previously overstayed 9 months on a tourist ETA. I don't want to type out the details of that again but if you care to know why I overstayed you can read threads I started previously.

I will be entering Australia in the first week of June and hope all goes smoothly from there! We actually ended up being thankful I wasn't processed quickly because we relocated to Vietnam and I have an online job so our living standard has been excellent here since the cost of living is so low compared to Australia and Canada and we haven't had to cook or clean for ourselves. Back to reality soon! My first entry has to be by June 12th.

Last thing that was requested has finally been uploaded. NOIM date is 9 months 6 days away so I'm hoping they just wait until it's 9 months out to make a decision. Fingers crossed I hear something soon.

Hi all, I have some confusion about my first entry by date. Can I arrive on this date or must I arrive before this date? In the process of looking at flights so need to know and cannot find the answer.
