‘The Permanent Partner Visa Process’ details the entire procedure and includes how to answer the call for more information to start your second stage visa processing.
As we approach the end of the year, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, feedback and suggestions. To continue to give back where it matters I have some exciting news and developments for the year to come.
I know a lot of you have started this daunting and lengthy process and it has always been a goal of mine to make it as easy as it can be without having to pay a migration agent a king’s ransom for help.
Since the launch of the book, feedback has come through thick and strong and for that I thank you. Without your updates, feedback and suggestions I wouldn’t be able to tell if what I do is helpful or not.
So let me just say this: I hear you. I see you. And I know your pains.
