    176's lodged October 2011

    Funnily enough I was looking at it just yesterday and wondering how you'd got on Bingo! Congratulations, must be a relief to have finally got things sorted after your ordeal with the agency :mad: Notch another one up to the DIY club :wink: Do you have plans to go over soon?

    Nice one Bingo, when we submitted the final bit of info our co wanted we were approved within 24 hours so good luck :wink: Congrats to you Neilangemz, what a wonderful way to spend Christmas!

    Yep, we also got asked for form 80. From the uk so not high risk either. Not sure if holidays is a deciding factor as my partner and I make 4-5 trips abroad each month, when I asked if the co wanted details of each trip he said he wasnt too bothered, thank goodness!!

    So, Congratulations to Amanda & Arthur, littlegreenman and vickchick!!! :biggrin: :biggrin: We uploaded a vast swathe of documents to show that Vix and I co-habit on Sunday night and last night at just before midnight we were granted our 176 :jiggly: Heading over in January to validate and a couple of weeks in the West Australian sun but it will probably be a couple of years before we make the final move over. We also went without an agent, the process was very straightforward for us so it was the right choice, hope you get some luck sorting your application out Bingo. :huh:

    Congtratulations Cath!! :biggrin: That's great news, and such a quick move over in time for the summer :em4300: Our own application is somewhat stalled at the moment which is disappointing as we thought we'd covered all the bases. Our CO wants more de-facto evidence and Vix's bank issues statements at a speed which makes a glacier look like a fast-flowing stream. Also none of our docs have changed status to met which is leaving us concerned that we won't get a visa issued before we go over in January :wideeyed:

    You should print off your Form 160EH and Form 26EH forms from the Electronic Application Document checklist, this gives you personalised forms for the medicals.

    They copied our passports themselves, they also took photos of us which I guess replace the ones you need to attach to the medical forms on the online system.

    Where are you going for the medicals? I left that question blank as I didn't know, as it happened at the Bridge Clinic they just put everything straight into the computer system so the form wasn't used as far as I could tell.

    We had already uploaded five Form 888s from friends an relatives, two done by Australian citizens! The joint statement we submitted included docs to show we reside at the same address, photos and evidence of holidays - boarding cards, passport stamps etc - made filling in the Form 80 for the last three years travel easy :wink:. Think that and our 11 week old daughter have convinced them we're a couple, we just need to prove we co-habit, last time I had bills in joint names was when I was flat sharing at University :rolleyes: On a brighter note I now know where all the wasps were coming from this summer :err:
  14. Haha you and me both Bex!! Got our CO today as well and like you we have a few more bits to complete. Hope it all goes smoothly from here for you :v_SPIN:

    Got our CO today :biggrin: Nothing showning as met yet though :unsure: Still got someway to go to visa issue as he's after payslips and P60s which is relatively simple. Unfortunately he's also after Form 80's for both of us which is tricky as both of us travel a lot - I've made over a 1000 visits abroad in the past 10 years and my partner is not far off with countless visits to Australia as well. While I can provide a list of where I've been with dates there is no way we can do the same for my partner. He is also after further evidence of co-habitation for our de-facto status, we submitted stat decs and a joint statement with some evidence such as driver's licences, bank statements and a voter registration form but we have nothing in both our names, I pay all the bills and where Vix needs to buy something she does it on a credit card issued on one of my accounts - not sure how we are going to satisfy this... :eek: Off to the loft to find my passport issued when I was 5 for the Form 80 :wacko:

    Congrats to everyone who's had a visa issued :biggrin: Our application was lodged on the 2nd October, haven't heard a thing yet! As our application is front-loaded I'm encouraged by those going straight to a grant but still can't help feeling a bit concerned given the timeline...

    Our application went in on the 2nd, no sign of a case officer for us either. It's game over till Monday now so might as well enjoy the weekend :goofy:

    Phoning DIAC

    Called DIAC A couple of times, usually around 0500 uk (one advantage of newborn children) and always got through quickly. Hopefully our application is a couple down from yours Bexy :yes:

    Good to hear everyone is progressing nicely. Our UK Police checks took a week to come back Unfortunately we're still waiting for a CO with no sign our application has been moved to 'further processing'. We've got everything uploaded now so starting to think it's personal :mad:

    175 and point test

    Have a read of this, tells you what you need to show to prove you're in a committed relationship for a GSM visa.

    176's lodged October 2011

    Straightforward, download the medical and radiology forms from your document checklist (they are personalised) and call one of these centres to book your medical. We used the Bridge Clinic in Maidenhead as they had the lowest charges, I would recommend them.
  23. Brilliant, been shadowing your progress for the past 2 months since we started our visa application and I'm really pleased it's worked out so quickly for you. Good luck in Perth, might see you in Little Creatures one day :biggrin:
