HE YIXUAN from China: ACIC student
To study and live in Australia
The student came to Australia as a high school student. During the course of her study life in Australia, migration policy changed twice which affected her plans.
When Yi Xuan was 17, she left China and came to Sydney on her own to study here. She learnt about ACICs service when she was in her Sydney high school 8 years ago and has been using ACICs service since.
With the help of ACICs Senior Consultant and Migration Agent, Mr Eric Wu, Yi Xuan was accepted smoothly into the University of Sydney in 2007 studying Nutrition. Unexpectedly, DIAC changed the immigration policy when she was about to graduate. The relative sponsorship policy (886 visa) changed and to immigrate, Yi Xuan also needed to qualify the skills assessment by having one-year full time work experience.
Yi Xuan sought the advice of Eric again and he carefully analysed her situation. Eric prepared a plan for her and helped her to apply for TR first, and at the same time, look for a job and prepare for IELTS test. Following this advice, Yi Xuan found a job and achieved four 7 for IELTS.
Yi Xuan then waited until she turned 25 in June this year to lodge her PR application. However， DIAC announced a new SOL list on 14 June, which removed her major off the list. This meant that if Yi Xuan cannot get PR before 1 July, she would have to wait for 3 more years. At the time of the announcement, Yi Xuan had already booked her flight tickets to Fiji on 25 June for a holiday. If she cannot get her PR granted before 25 June, she would have to cancel her entire trip and wait in Sydney.
Thanks to the quick work by Eric and ACICs team, the students PR was approved on 23rd June, 2 days before her trip. This was only possible through the professional work and documentation done by ACIC to ensure the PR was approved in such a short time.
Comment from student
How time flies! It has been 8 years since I came to this city, from High School to University, to my current work life, my journey is inseparable with ACIC. My first contact with ACIC goes all the way back when Eric visited our high school when I was in Year 12. It was a critical year to me because I had a decision to make about which university I would go to and which major I would study. From then on, ACIC accompanied me for my entire education and immigration journey.
It was only over one week left before my trip. It seemed impossible to get PR in such short time. But thanks to ACIC and Eric, they made this possible! The documents for my PR application were very well prepared by Eric, he also followed my case closely by checking the progress with DIAC. Finally, at 12pm on 23 June, my PR was granted! I was so thrilled! All my efforts and hard work for the past 8 years are finally paid off. I went to Fiji and spent the best holiday ever! I really appreciate the professional advice and service provided by ACIC, they are the best! Thank you Eric, thank you ACIC!
