Hi Yes, separate. Bale if you are the applicant, lodge your application first (**Stage 1 - Partner or Prospective Marriage Visa (300,309/100,820/801)**). Then the TRN generated for that will then be used to lodge your sponsor's application (Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia (300,309/100,820/801)) I (sponsor) was planning to change my name after our marriage, kaso lahat ng documents ko na pinasa during lodgement is under my maiden name so we've decided nlng once we get our temporary grant nlng mag change ng last name.

Noodles12Roadtrip: Sydney - Canberra - Melbourne
Sharing my Sydney to Melbourne trip last weekend. It was around a 10hr drive including toilet break and stop over to eat via Hume highway. We left Sydney at 5:30am and arrived at Melbourne around 4pm. The drive was not too bad but kind of boring(lol), maybe because there is not much scenic view except maybe from the windmills (Not sure what place it was). Make sure you had a good sleep the night before because the loooooong drive will definitely make you feel sleepy, and take loooots of coffee. LOL Be sure to visit these place when you get to Melbourne. - Great Ocean road (this will make your Sydney to Melbourne long drive worth it. ) - Twelve Apostles - Phillip Island - Brighton Bath Boxes

it's not impossible but it is highly improbable na ma-sponsoran ka. pero siguro tipong pang-director or vp position (senior/management positions) ang iniisponsoran nila. madami ka naman options to get to australia puwede kang mag apply by your self (skilled independent), puwede din student visa or maybe even aim for somewhere easier to go to like middle east or singapore then build up your work experience before embarking on australian migration.
