    • Its been in the air for several weeks but all the reports I've seen are that Scomo is against the idea - and for once I agree with him(even as a huge cricket fan)
    • I applied for my 309/100 visa back in March 2018. Was refused due to technical error at embassy as no evidence received by the embassy 4 weeks after application. We applied for the appeal in June 2018 and finally won our case 2 weeks ago in sept 2021  Does anyone have any idea on timeframe from remit to grant. We originally applied through the London office so hoping will go back there for them to grant.  Just want to know how long will take.  
      Any help appreciated  
    • I read with mounting fury today that Boris Johnson has asked Scott Morrison for special dispensation to allow the Uk cricketers families to accompany them to Australia for the Christmas Test Matches! I was incandescent!  There are thousands of us who would love special permission to spend Christmas with our families who live in Australia & whom we have been forcibly separated from since the outbreak of Covid 19, including new grandchildren whom we have never seen! Boris Johnson will probably not even be aware of our heartbreaking situation but I am sure that Scott Morrison is only too aware!  Surely this cannot happen?      
    • Ok great thanks for the reply’s everyone, I’ve made a huge effort today to ensure I have everything I need. I actually have a ton of evidence dating back 13 years so have documented it all in order and ready to upload. 
      I will wait for the 888 forms to come back first. I was just a bit unsure as I have already done this 20 years ago for a previous partner but it was all done by snail mail so slightly different uploading it all online.
