Dear FOI,

It is already 16th of October today, and I have not yet received any reply from your end.

Some of my very important career decisions will be based on the reply I receive.

I want to immigrate to Australia as a registered nurse, but for that I will have to gain registration with AHPRA. I will have to spend almost all of the lifetime savings plus borrow some from a bank. I have to undergo a 6 month course to gain registration in Australia, which is a quite costly affair.

If Nurses are already in a long waiting list, and if Australia does not give them appropriate long term visas, if Australia does not need more of Nurses then i don't think it will be a wise decision to spend lifetime of savings on a futile effort to gain registration.

I hope you can empathise with my predicament. Please expedite the process and provide me the requested information so that I can make future career decision.

Yours sincerely,

Mohit sureshbhai maheta

Dear FOI,
FOI Request: FA 19/09/01173

I had a notion that "not honoring a deadline" is a trait found exclusively in Indian governmental agencies, I thank you for having my notion changed. I think the delays are caused due to excessive workload. And I really don't blame you for the delay. Government agencies across the globe are becoming busier day after day.

Anyways , thank you.
