Raafat Ishak, Responses to an immigration request from one hundred and ninety four governments

 

Dear Sir/ Madam

I am an Australian citizen who wishes to immigrate to [ ] and settle there permanently.

I was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1967 and migrated to Australia in 1982. I obtained my Australian citizenship in 1985. I have an under-graduate degree in fine arts and a post-graduate degree in architecture history and conservation practice. I have 10 years employment experience in the art conservation field and have been practicing as a visual artist for 15 years.
I have sufficient finances to settle in a new country and start a small business. I have no criminal or prison records. I speak fluent English, Arabic and French.
I plan to immigrate alone and have no known relatives or friends in [ ]. I am able to wind up my financial and personal affairs in Australia as soon as I have been granted an immigration permit.

I hope you look favourably at this initial inquiry/ request for immigration and let me know at your earliest convenience as to what steps I should be taking next.

Yours sincerely
Raafat Ishak
