When you fall in love, you don’t think that something like a visa could stand in the way, but that is the reality for many people around the world. Fortunately for Nicole and Phil, their story had a happy ending thanks to Melody at Global Visas.
Nicole said that she didn’t believe in long-distance relationships before meeting the man who is now her fiancé, and both she and Phil were eager to bridge the enormous gap between South Africa (Nicole’s home) and Australia where Phil is based. After several weeks of chatting online, Nicole and Phil finally met in Melbourne where they spent just 4 days together before Phil proposed on the Eureka Skydeck on December 12th.
After a wonderful holiday and, what Nicole describes as ‘the most beautiful, precious moment’ in her life, reality set in and they realised that they needed to relocate Nicole and her 3 children from Cape Town, South Africa, if they were to be together.
Once they contacted Global Visas with their information, we put Melody on the case. Melody’s experience and expertise meant that she used every avenue possible to expedite Nicole’s visa and help her move to be with Phil as soon as possible. The documents are now lodged with the Australian High Commission in South Africa, as Nicole and Phil eagerly await the moment when she can permanently move to Australia.
Phil and Nicole are over the moon that they will finally be able to live together in Melbourne, and cannot wait until the day that Nicole and her children are able to relocate. Phil said that “Melody has answered our emails in a prompt and professional manner and explained things a number of times to teach us the best way forward as this can be very confusing with the amount of paperwork involved” and that he “would have no hesitation in recommending Global Visas due to Melody’s hard work and always setting us in the right direction and providing the best options.”
We wish Phil and Nicole the best of luck with their new life together, and offer congratulations on their wedding, which will be happening as soon as feasibly possible. Nicole even mentioned that they were thinking of getting married at Melbourne airport the day that they arrive!
