    176 Visa Granted Today

    :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: We came back from Australia in January 2009 after a 6 week trip and decided Australia is going to be our new home. Now, just over 2 years later we have our VISA. Yippee.:jiggy: We went out there as a couple and I was 5 months pregnant then, and now we will be returning as a family of 4. Our little babies will be proper ozzies, accent and all! Can't tell you how excited we all are. Not yet sunk it properly though. Thank you to everyone who has given us advice on PIO. Good luck to everyone still waiting. Thanks Claire, Pete, Jaime & Maisie
  4. Hi there guys, I'm just about having a nervous breakdown here. Got a 175 in place, CO requested medicals last week, booked for April 7th. PCCs requested. Also got a 457 visa about to be lodged because my boss in Oz is being a little slow (still not lodged nomination/I plan to lodge my app as soon as he has). He's hoping to lodge the 457 in the next week or so. I've booked flights to Sydney on the 11th of May, ready to start work on the 30th? Question: If neither of these visas have been granted by the 11th of May can I just enter on a tourist visa and wait for the 457 to come through whilst in Sydney. Thanks for any advise.

    Visa granted today!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi everyone, Well we got the fantastic news this morning VISA GRANTED 07/03/2011. It's been 3 long years since we started the process but boy has it been worth it. To read those magical words at 6 o'clock this morning has made every bad day when everything was going wrong so worth it. So to everyone out there that feels like giving up & i know from personal experience we have had many days over the last 2 or 3 years like that, please DON'T because when you do eventually hear the words YOUR VISA HAS BEEN GRANTED it's the best feeling ever, trust me!!! A massive thank you to everyone on here who has given advice, information, help or has just been there when everthing seemed to be against us & was there to listen. Don't think we could have got through it without you. THANK YOU :notworthy: Jo Xxx Now for some serious celebrating!!!!!!!! :jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:

    Visa granted

    Hi got a email from my agent today saying our visa had been granted :biggrin: feel so happy but also nervous after 3 long years of waiting never thought this day would come:biggrin: dont know where to start at whats to do next,had our house on the market for a couple of weeks now so hopefully we will have some intrest real soon. Hoping to be in perth for september time would love to hear from anyone who has recently gone or who will be going,or anyone who can give me any help with areas,schools and what you did at this stage.
  15. Hi, We are new to this site and would be EXTREMELY grateful if someone could offer advice re the following. We are a 175 application from October 2009 and are hoping to get visa through by June/July this year - but who knows?!? Question I have is my daughter passport expires in July 2011. Do you think I would be better waiting until we hopefully get visa before renewing her passport or should we just apply now and update DIAC. My preference would be to wait until after visa granted, however not sure if this then poses difficulties transferring visa to a new passport. Apologies for the rant - hopefully you get the jist:wub:

My partner is currently just on stage one of vetassess and waiting for the result. Does anyone know how long recent ss is taking to be granted for SA. Really worried about lodging on time:frown: Thanks, Lucy.

    Yeahhhhhhhhh! 176 Visa Granted

    I have been looking through the threads pretending it is a normal day as I was lost for words. Whoooooooopie! :jiggy: Still can't believe it - we have our Visas at long last. Phew!!! There were times when I almost gave up hope of ever seeing this day (some of my friends and family just could not understand the delay - but everyone here knew how I was feeling). I would just like to send a big :hug: to everyone who participates on here. I have met some wonderful people on here - many of whom were able to perk me up and give me hope again when I was down. Special thanks to Gollywobbler who was the first to welcome me - and scared the life out of me asking personal questions when I wanted to get by on PIO as a barely noticed poster and intended to spend most of my time lurking. :confused: She also help with her comments to others, it is sad to think how many people are losing out not gaining that wisdom now she is no longer on PIO (I hope she is lurking and wish her well). When I started the old VIC SS Kelly and Taz contacted me immediately with a massive welcome (and I foolishly had been terrified people would be arsy about me starting a VIC thread and "copying" their idea) and gave me loads of advice :notworthy:. They also thankfully stopped me leaving PIO one week when it all got a bit rough. All the agents that come on here and comment on peoples queries - thank you so much - all those little snippets add together and helped me no end. So I started off wanting to pretty much be a lurker and background poster. However, the desperate need to know what was happening with SS in VIC leading to the VIC SS thread turned me into a bit of a PIO monster and these days I just can't stop :chatterbox:. My thanks to everyone on PIO :hug: Vicky
