  1. Visa granted today - we're over the moon!! The long wait is over. Arriving in Oz on 29/2! Thanks everyone for all your help and support.
  2. Just wanted to share with you a response from Immi regarding payment of the 2nd VAC. Our bank has a daily limit of $25k for BPAY.
  3. I know just how you feel....congratulations!!
  4. Request for 2nd VAC received today! The long wait and suspense is soon over. This forum has been our lifeline, especially over the past year, and the help and support from everyone has been fantastic. Thank you so much and good luck to everyone in the queue. I will report back once the payment is made and the Visa is approved.
  5. AoS lodged on 14.11.19 and just received Centrelink approval letter today, 30.1.20! Very happy bunny!!
  6. So sorry to hear that. Maybe it's worth just sending a message to your case officer to explain that it was 13 years ago you left the UK...? He/she might reconsider, you never know. Yes please for red wine!!
  7. Hi Peter, that's probably the easiest solution. Many thanks Christa
  8. Thanks Rosiejaq. I wonder if this means a third party can pay as long as the visa reference number is quoted?
  9. Hi Biggsy, thank you for the advice but I'm not sure if HSBC work in the same way as Commbank. I will have to contact them on the phone but the advice they've given me in writing already is that the cannot increase the BPay limit. I'll let everyone know what they say. Thanks again Christa
  10. Hello, Can anyone please advise if a third party can pay the 2nd VAC? We have an account with HSBC Australia but their daily limit for BPay is not high enough to pay the full Visa amount. Apparently this limit cannot be increased even for the purpose of one payment. We're not in Australia so can't visit an HSBC branch ourselves. Has anyone had this problem and how did you resolve it? Our daughter or son could pay it for us through their own bank account if that is acceptable. Many thanks, Christa
  11. Our daughter had the call from Centrelink yesterday. She was told to expect the bank guarantee letter on Monday. We're so happy to be a step closer!
