Indeed.

It's nice to find a voice of reason amidst all this hostility, which can be a little off-putting.

Thank you.

The process is long, hard and expensive but the worst is just no contact from the Case Officers, often at all and even after a year - it stresses many out.

It all comes down to if you can put in a valid application, if you can nothing stops you from applying just like every other person.

If your application could be a straight path to PR then I would get a good RMA and look into all the other issues of not currently immigrating and the RRV issues - then make an informed decision of weather to apply or wait or not bother.

Your family is your responsibility and you must do the best for them you can within the rules and laws - and they constantly change and you would not want to miss the boat!

I had pretty rough visa journey's but nothing like some including chicken999, maybe some that think the wait is long should look up some of her posts - he must be a citizen soon?!
Thank you so much. I really appreciate the positivity and the advice.

Thank you for understanding I'm doing what I think is best for me and my family in the long term.

Some of the hostility from the likes of @ZoeKaur are not only disheartening but almost disappointing. If we are all immigrants, does it matter who's "more eligible"?

As I said I have vented a few times on this forum, to be honest I should have been banned the said few times.

But I have seen a lot of stories over the years and done much immigration research in all areas from wait times to costs and even embassies process %'s and much more.

But yours is the first post I have seen how you worded it - I would do the same.

I find pleasure that most of the folk giving you positive or neutral info are ones I helped or supported on their path of the PMV/309 and/or 820 visas. They also have great knowledge of the system and its history.

Keep in mind you also have access to applying on- shore which many don't. In many cases people have to be apart for much of the processing period which is why they can seem to be frustrated 'easily'.
Like the others have said it's no excuse but often people who have access to an easier path don't and can't understand the path of those who have no other option. For some it's the only way they can be together rather than just a potential option in the future if it suits.
At least 4 years ago the offshore was half the price of onshore given the difference in what the applications offer for me it's a fair enough difference in price.
Again to be clear not excusing the attitude but offering a different view point and it may not occur to others.

I wouldn’t worry about it. You are just as entitled to apply as anyone else, although I think your particular strategy may not necessarily be viable.

Long processing times are due to many factors,like:
  • Reduced staffing
  • Increased number of applications
  • Increased scrutiny because of fraudulent applications
  • Incomplete or poorly prepared applications lodged by DIY applicants or incompetent unregistered operators
  • Local security checks

Your application, if you lodge it, will have no noticeable impact on processing times whatsoever.

That is only currently and we know plans are to close this door ( or the intent from what we hear)

The plan is to have sponsors "pre approved" this may stop or very limit onshore applications due to process times.

Hey, you said it, not me

More of a thank you as you're the main one that helped me out a few years back when I was reading on here long before I even joined the forum. I owes you a brewskie if ever in your neck of the woods.

If everyone on here that you've helped bought you a beer, you'd have enough to drink for a lifetime haha.

Just to clarify, my comments were not of a negative mindset towards the OP. I was merely suggesting that your intentions stated (and even the title of your post) kind of contradict the whole visa process. You're of course entitled to do whatever you like & of course your application alone is not personally stopping anyone else's however it may come across to some as less than ideal when they may not have the luxury of just casually submitting a visa to 'maybe' use one day
