Still no news. I got the letter from immigration that they resent-it was basically advising me that they had received my application in June. When I called immi on 18th Sept they told me I had been allocated a case worker so I was really hopeful I would hear something-but still nothing. Thanks for your message Susan, whilst I dont need to necessarily apply for a new 457 I would need to get a new employer to do some applications I believe, so its not as simple as just changing jobs. A job that I really want has been advertised-im going to call them next week and explain the situation and just pray immigration get in touch soon!!! Im panicing that its taking so long because they have doubts-which is crazy-we have been together 2 years and have a house!! Oh well fingers crossed!

Still nothing from immigration but a major development for me and my de-facto. He proposed at the weekend!! Of course I said yes-im now wondering if I should call immigration to advise of the development or wait for my case worker to contact me? Any advice?

Congratulations on the proposal/engagement hels and it does say on the immi web site re applications that any changes should be advised to Immi.

At least it gives you a reason to contact the CO [seeing as they expressed resentment - in you following up!] and you can ask for advice on whether the engagement is something she would note on the application or whether you need to dend in a form 1022 though an engagement does not give you a document to be sent in - maybe just as well for it could cause a delay!

In asking, a sweet and how is it going will not hurt or maybe the CO could surprise and say something is on the way!.

Best of luck.

Hi

Hey guys i'm new to this forum. I have recently applied for the de facto visa in melbourne and just to correct the info regarding the medicare, You are eligible to get medicare even if you have just applied for the Visa and not necessarily when you are granted. I also recieved a letter but from the lady over the counter who lodged my application.

Hey rav, welcome to the board!

I'm curious about what you wrote RE medicare... so did you have to fill out any forms in order to get your card? The website crashes on my computer any time i go to check it out so im really not sure what the procedure is. Obviously i would like to be covered by medicare from the minute i set foot in australia so i don't have to pay to get travel insurance. Do you need a letter from immi or a copy of your visa? if you have any info let me know.

BTW Hels, congrats on your engagement!!!! hope you have heard something from immi by now! good luck!

Hey elkitten,

I was just reading the letter i recieved at the time of lodging my application here in Melbourne. You are eligible if you have applied in Australia for permanent residency or even if you are on a bridging visa until the decision is made. Applicants who is coming from overseas obviously gonna hold a residence visa prior to the arrival in Australia. You need to wait approximatlely 10days after arriving in Australia and then go to medicare office with proof of your status. That's what the letter says, so I think the reason lady over the counter asked me to get my medicare with this letter and my passport cuz I am here and I can visit medicare in person and do all of that. Hope this info helps.

Your welcome,

In your case it would be your passport and visa endorsed in it. That's all you'd need. I need to get my slacky butt to medicare, I still haven't done it lol cuz I have international student private cover so I guess it gives me a comfort to be a slacker hahahaha....
