HI...I'm an Australian, and have been living in in the UK for 10 years or so. Been married to my British wife for 4 years, we've two sons who already have Australian citizenship by descent.
I've just been offered a job to go back to Australia, but have just come across the process for getting my wife a visa for us to all move as a family, and in addition to it costing A$7K, and being a drawn out process...its suggesting that waiting times are in excess of 12 months. Is this for real?
SO if my job offer wants me to start by the end of the year, basically i cant move my family over with me? There must be some sort of interim measure?
