    High Points for 489/190 - South Australia

    Oh I hope so. Searches are being done on our house, which will take around 12 weeks to complete. Be nice to have the visa before exchange of contracts so we can relocate direct to Australia.

    That would be a great way to welcome new arrivals.

    Have you had any form on CO contact Jonno? I'm only on day 60 and starting to drive me nuts already haha. Yes, first one in early December (medical & police) and again in January (wife’s medical declaration).

    107 days for us. Wife and child included, but no additional points claimed.

    Is anyone else going crazy waiting for their visa grant???!!! Honestly I don’t think a minute goes by without me thinking about it . I’ve coped up till this point by focusing on the process, but now all that is left to do is wait and it’s driving me nuts!!!

    But the change will be to the 887 visa not the 489 visa. This visa we haven't applied for yet. Say they do increase the requirement of the 887 to 5 years, how can the current 489 meet this as it only lasts for 4 years? Surely they’d honour the pre-existing 489’s with the 2 year stipulation for 887?

    Same here, I expected and found many difficulties throughout this almost 2 year process, but we got through them. I just want to get there now!!! I’m hopeful we will hear something this month because the last CO contact (January) asked my wife to sign a form declaring she would visit a health clinic within a month of arriving in Australia (extra pulmonary TB 10 years ago). My logic says why would they ask for that if they’re not going to grant the visa soon.

    You do realise this means you’re getting the first round in .

    I decided to put our house on the market last week as I felt it would reduce the lag time from visa grant to emigrating. I expected it to take at least a few months to sell, possibly 6-9, but I got an offer I couldn't refuse within 2 days!!! I've been told it will take around 12 weeks for the council searches so I'm hoping the grant will come through before we have to move out so we can head straight to Oz. If it doesn't come through before, I will most likely rent somewhere for 6 months or do a short term AirB&B. It's a gamble as we may not even get the visa, but I'm comfortable with that as we will just look to purchase another house in the UK.

    Congrats!!! Did you front load everything? We submitted 31st October, but have had two CO contacts since, one in December and another in January. I'm hoping we get the grant this month, the suspense is killing me!!!

    Do perminant resident need a UK visa to visit the UJ

    My wife is a dual national (Filipina/British) and I remember her saying that her sister in Philippines would need to apply for a tourist visa to visit us here in the UK.

    We are using George Lombard in Sydney and I would recommend them.

    Congratulations @Jimbo We applied around the same time and had second contact with CO today asking my wife to fill in form 815 (health declaration). Hoping we don’t get another delay as a result of this because I have a feeling we would have received the grant today.
