  1. @ticklebug74 you have a year to activate the visa by entering Australia from the date of your medicals and police check.
  2. Can you let me know who the shipping company is @Thom? Thanks.
  3. @Dmb81 I'm not sure why I had to do a police check. I'd submitted a UK one, but maybe it's because we're taking children with us? I don't know. Maybe have a look through this thread and see if anyone else had to do similar - even if just living in Australia as a child. It took about 15 working days to come through, was inexpensive and straightforward - in case you decide / or get asked to do one. Thank you for the well wishes. Same to you!
  4. Ours were for my Australian police check (even though I have never lived in Australia), and UK police check and medicals for my husband and 2 young kids. We're flying out to Sydney at the end of November to try and get settled before the start of the Aussie school year.
  5. And we're in! Grants came through this morning Thank you everyone on this thread for the moral support, sharing and caring and encyclopaedic levels of information... and to @CEP for the most invaluable spreadsheet, which gives a really good indiction of timings and helped form our decisions up until this point. Good luck everyone still waiting.
  6. No way! That’s amazing news! Congrats! We lodged at the same time so here’s hoping our grants are en route...
  7. Do you have any idea what the hold up might be? Did you have a complex RFI request? Really hope you get some good news soon.
  8. Sure - it's here: https://www.afp.gov.au/what-we-do/services/criminal-records/national-police-checks
  9. I've just had my Australian Police check through. It was as straightforward as the UK ACRO one. It took about 15 working days to arrive. I also asked them if they could send a copy to my family in Australia so they would receive it faster and then scan and upload it to me - just in case my copy got lost over the oceans somewhere!
  10. @AdStanna This is everything [emoji1369][emoji1373] Wonderfully put! And here’s to the next chapter in your life. Congratulations!
  11. We didn’t get a notification to say they were uploaded but a few days after the medicals, we checked our IMMI account and it said that the Medicals has been finalised and we didn’t need to do anything further.
  12. HELL YEAH, LONDON!! Congratulations to all those with the winning ticket. For those who submitted their RFIs under two separate accounts, Sponsor and Applicant, when clicking the 'I confirm I have provided information as requested' grey button, did you just do it on the one account? I uploaded the final piece of evidence just now, under my Sponsor account and clicked the confirmation button. Great. Then went to the Applicant account and went to press the confirmation button there too, but now it's greyed out i.e. I can't click it which I'm sort of panicking about. I'm guessing as the two accounts are linked and all RFI documents are uploaded, and I pressed the confirmation button under the Sponsor account, that that's why I can't press it under the Applicant's account? Our status on both Sponsor and Applicant accounts now says 'Further Assessment'. (Sorry if that made no sense!)
  13. @belfastchild I’m an Australian by descent and have never lived in Australia and was asked in my RFI for an Australian police check. Now I’m stressing out it won’t arrive within the 28 day window, despite it having being despatched 3 days after it was requested. (Another wait to add to an even bigger wait!)

    I didn’t know that about the university fees. It makes complete sense though!
