    Sorry simonbrads reread your post, ignore last part of my previous post! As soon as you do your meds you will get your visa grant, so not long! When are you planning to go? Is it Perth or Freemantle you are off to?

    Dont have a link, but got it straight from my CO. Our medicals were don August last year, and I was panicking as I knew about the 1 year rule. CO gave us a 6mo extension on them, so now our enty date is 1 year from when the ACPO certificates were issued, no later. The ACPO certificates, I thought were mandatory, as its part of your character check. If youve got a CO, check with them, mine was very friendly and helpful!

    Hi simonbrads, thanks!! We are moving in 3 months time. The entry date given is one year from when the medicals or police clearance certificates were completed, whichever is earlier.

    Morning, how is everybody? Allocation dates have moved on a little: Once all the June applications have been allocated a CO, I am hoping that things will get moving again! Did anyone who is married need to submit evidence of the history of your relationship? Not sure if I do. Thanks!

    Thanks jkk, that helps! Meds finalised on the 31st of Aug for me and partner, but on the 16/8 for little one (no blood test results to wait for), so guess they will take the year from then, so 17/8 probably. Well done on getting your visa, you have nearly a year to get ready to go, which is good.

    Indeed, it has all gone quiet. The allocation dates are not moving, still on 23 May 2011 for our visa. There is a note to say that they have had a large volume of appications for May and June 2011, which would be the case, due to new rules and fees from July. There is also ofcourse the matter of slow moving vs fast moving processing teams. we have two people here, who applied within 3 days of each other, where one has had case officer early Dec, and the other is still waiting, hang in there!! Congrats to everyone who has had theor grant, must feel like you have run a marathon when you get it! May I ask a question though to those that have PLEASE? Is your 'arrive in Aus by' date based on when you have had your medicals and police checks, i..e. is it EXACTLY a year from when you had either of those done first? Would appreciate some clarity on this, as we somehow got medicals done in August, and will prob only get visa in April/May, which doesnt give us much time really to sort jobs out etc! Thanks, have a good week all!

    Congrats to all who who have had the visas granted!! Is it still a condition that you need to enter Aus within 6 months permanently or not?

    We are planning to go to Perth where we have family. Fremantle is beautiful, I loved it! But really, if we get a job offer elsewhere, we will have to go there, looking like Melbourne may be a possibility... Please that you submitted everything, well done, thats an achievement!! Wont be long now...
