Address change acknowledgement

Hi

Just wondering if immi ever sends any acknowledgement whenever you update them your new address ?

I am currently on the temporary 820 visa (after the massive struggle and help and support from this forum !) and I have moved at least 3 times since I got 820 granted(Just couldn't find jobs). I was in Cairns when I got 820 granted and I moved twice with in Cairns. Then I moved to Harvey Bay and then to Brisbane where I am now. Each time I move property I send immigration 929 form updating my contact details. I never used to get any email or acknowledgment stating that they have received it or the details are updated or anything.

Is it normal ? Is there a way I can make sure immigration has my correct and update contact details other than calling them and being on wait for an hour ?

Sorry to hear about the issues you had to face in the job front. I hear many are facing similar issues
I doubt DIBP would provide the applicant with acknowledgement letter every time they received form 929.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

P.S.- I will be moving to Brisbane as well. Haven't come across many Indians in Brisbane, everyone seems to be moving to either Melbourne or Sydney...haha!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Sometimes it feels as though everyone is moving to Sydney or Melbourne.

There are some Indians at my work. When I was growing up our neighbours were Indian and I just loved the smell of curry ... don't like it because too spicy for me but I love the smell lol.

I didn't get any sort of acknowledgment either when I sent form 929 in to change my name and my passport details. I did log into VEVO a few weeks later to check my new passport was linked to my visa, and it is. If you want to verify they received it, you could always call or email.

Especially Indian applicants from the other immigration forum I'm a member of, literally EVERYONE is either moving to Sydney or Melbourne
Hahaha!! I've gotten my husband to get used to the spicy food. Took me 2 years though, a little bit everyday did the trick...LOL
The curries do smell wonderful, one can tell that there is an Indian restaurant in the vicinity just by the aroma...haha!

Yeah! We are, I like Brisbane because it is not overly populated, less pollution and the people are AWESOME!
When I first moved to Brisbane, I got lost in the city so many time during the first month...LOL Bus stops and timetables confused the crap out of me.

I still remember this one time in the city a middle aged Australian women saw me confused and lost outside the commonwealth bank queen st branch. She helped me get to where I needed to go and showed me the MOST important trick on the map when I got lost again that all the parallel streets in the CBD were male and female names. That was an eureka moment for me...hahaha

Hahaha!! I guess hot food is still a no go area for many aussies

I told the hubby which station to get off at but then he used the GPS on his phone and it sent him around in circles so he always allowed extra time.

We are a friendly bunch and always helping people where to go.

Ahhh the male and female streets ... brings back memories of primary school.

When you go back to Brissie the best advice I can give is download translink app for your phone or use the website ... it is gold. You don't even have to use a map or timetable

Yeah! It was an adventure, new city, new country
I downloaded the translink app on my phone not long after I moved to Brissie
My husband is from Melbourne, he moved to Brisbane in 2011 (and I moved there in 2008) that's when we met I was the one showing him around and telling him which bus or train to get on from the city; it was so funny cause I was supposed to be the immigrant and I used to show him around the city...hahaha!

I was raised by a mother who thought black pepper was "too spicy" most of the time, haha, but I grew to love trying cuisines from different parts of the world. I love, love, love Indian food, Thai food, Mexican, Greek, Jamaican, Spanish, French, Ethiopian... I could go on and on. I love spicy food, though even I have limits, haha. Back in the US I'd ask for things "spicy" when I got Thai food, and I'd get what they consider US spicy. My friend always asked for "Thai spicy," and hers was so spicy it'd melt your face off, hahaha.

I love curries especially... yum.
