Recommended Posts

Got our visa today!!! Lodged on 30 August, have been fighting for this visa from 2007. We were the unfortunate applicants pre-September 2007. Now we can rest. Hope you get yours soon.

We've been allocated a CO today- so great news. We need to submit a few more docs and the family needs new medicals so we'll get those in 5 days. Quick question, BUPA website gives options on about 7 tests, do we need to tick all these (including stuff like syphilis???) or do we need to just tick assessment for Medicals and a chest x-ray?

Congrats. I had to wait for an Australian police check to come back. Received it this morning so this has been emailed to CO. So hopefully next few days should have a grant.

Today I got assigned a CO (Team 23) She asked to send again my Police Clearance from the Uk, I front loaded all my documents inclusive this I think maybe was a mistake from the system that She did not recieve the police clearance when I applied to my visa (14-08-2014)

It seems to have gone quiet and the waiting in my house if finally making us all go crazy. Not much longer I hope, as we have a job to be moving to. Fingers crossed for the rest of us, still some waiting time left.

I submitted my application on Friday the 29th August 2014. Not heard anything yet but based on the 3 month processing time (13 weeks?) I am hoping to get this by the 28th November. I have an employer waiting for me who paid for my wife and I to visit in September; this simply made it worse as we are now even more keen to emigrate with our three kids!

 

Will update this as soon as I hear anything...

Just a quick update - status has changed from 'processing' to 'processing - please wait for the department to contact you'. What does it all mean????

That's because it's going to be mid dec and I don't think there will be grants during Xmas season ?
