AOS : My son in law lodged the Aos 21 February 2019.There was no interview but when he got the request to pay he was on holidays.
That was around May 1st 2019. He deposited the money at the Commonwealth Bank on 6th may 2019 but still got a letter that his Aos
application had been rejected because he had not paid the required bond. He had to make few phone calls and had to go into centre link to clear the matter.
Finally he got a letter on May 30th 2019 that his Aos lodged on 21 February 2019 had been accepted.
