    Living in Australia - What you need to know

    The reason why many Aussies use gas plate barbecues is because of total fire bans. You can use gas bbqs on those days, but you can't use a Weber.
  2. Similar story here. Me and my partner have been together for 16 years - 15 of those in the UK. I think our delay was because our case officer was on leave for a few weeks and hadn't put our application in to action for a grant before they left. Doesn't matter though, at least we have it now!
  3. [QUOT E=helenmooshap;1936607598]Hi everyone I haven't posted before but have been reading this thread since I applied for my partner visa in January. I received my visa on Tuesday so it took 8 months and 3 days! I e-mailed my case officer on Tuesday morning and received an out of office reply saying that he was on leave until the end of the month so I e-mailed the familymigration e-mail address and got my "grant" e-mail back within a couple of hours! I'm so glad I didn't wait until my case officer returned from leave. Good luck to everyone who is waiting. Cheers, Helen That's what we should have done!! Congratulations!
  4. Ecstatic is the word. I was beginning to get worried. Not sure what class we got. It says 309 on one page and 100 on the other.
  5. Visa granted! Nine months and 11 days. Can't begin to tell you how relieved we are!
  6. Let's hope so. If we haven't heard anything by the end of the week I'm complaining. At least our house sale will complete at the end of the month, and we secured a rental property on the sunny Central Coast today, so not all bad. Congratulations to to the lucky ones
  7. Well, no joy there. Apparently it is being 'finalised' and will be granted very shortly - some time in the next month. FFS!
  8. Not yet. Hubby is going to call them shortly. So frustrating!
  9. Oh come on already! Visa please. It is 9 months tomorrow.
  10. You must have the same CO as me and my better half. The day our CO is back from leave is the 9 month mark for us!
  11. Might run into you two on the Central Coast! You'll be glad to know that the first day of spring was a sunny 24 degrees.
