Hi Stillhere

 

Yep totally understand where your coming from. Sharkie getting his visa, kind of makes it all more poignant!!!

 

Really hoped when you guys got back from your Hols you would have had something on the mat. We are really sure YOU WILL find out well before you pc's run out.

 

Thanks for all your help re: thread 'January Paper Based 175'. regarding our Meds.

 

Not long now.

Yep we're with an agent who is getting a bit of a hard time from us at the mo as we are a bit miffed ourselves as a month ago they told us we should hear within 2/3 weeks. (Breathe!!)

 

We've been told we have a CO which in June was gone for a decision???? Who knows??? Asked agent if we should re-do our meds but were told to hang in there for a couple of day's as the email they sent to DIAC for an enquiry would take up to 3 working days to reply!! That will be tomorrow but again who knows!!!

 

Plus we were told there has been a back log but we knew that anyway!!!

 

Good Luck everyone!!!

 

Gold medals for waiting me thinks!!!

hi stillhere , we got our visa last wednesday (495 i think) we have been waiting a year it came a year to the day they received it and it was paper based. we didnt get a case officer at all its because of the mess up from august 07 (wouldnt have minded so much but the changes didnt even effect us and everyone was getting theres weeks after on line.) Dont lose heart the feeling is amazing when you hear knowing that nothing can stop you now , we have to sell the house and be gone by 9th april but nothing is going to stop us now . reguards shaz and rob

hiya guys

 

yep we are too still here ! hope you guys had a nice holiday and managed to take your mind off it for that time at least.

 

i am getting rather annoyed now actually as soo many visas lodged after ours are getting granted. it is my sons and my mum and dad i feel sorry for. reason being we are at present living with my parents as we have sold our house and my sons are just loving living here and my parents are enjoying having us. my parents are on holiday at the minute and my eldest keeps asking when are they back as he is missing them !! what will it be like when we go to oz ? and the longer we spend here the harder it will be to leave and the harder it will be for my parents to let us go.

 

anyway maybe tomorrow eh guys. we live in hope.

 

all the very best

Hi guys!

Know exactly how you are all feeling. :sad:We applied originally early 2007 that visa is in limbo land as the oz gov have put it on hold - so after months of waiting we decided to apply for different visa class in May 08, however we'd already had our meds and police checks before applying for new visa so like some of you we are beginning to worry about if the visa will be issued before our checks run out. We sooooo thought we'd be there by now!!!

Paperbased processing is - broadly speaking - up to October 07 so not long for you now mate I wouldn't have thought :jiggy:

We were just about giving up on the idea of going to oz. We applied online without an agent Nov 18th 2007. Our ACS has just run out our medicals run out in January 2009. We decided that if we had to spend any more money renewing any of the above then we would forget the whole thing.

 

I went online on Monday 01.09.08 and our status was still application processing but under our names was the words 'approved' . Finally a change, then we got the email to say we have got it finally. We didnt even know that we had a case officer!!!!!!!

 

The elation turned to panic when we realised that we only have less than 6 months to get over and either live or validate the visa. No way we would sell the house in that time scale, so Im just frantically looking into rental, and the main problem - if we have to pay lots of tax on the house if we sell up after a year in the uk and make the move permanently to oz.

So hang in there it feels like its never going to happen it will and then its panic time!!!!!!

Glad you are feeling more up-beat today. I was sure you would hear! Did you see that kevin got his? At least the visa's are being issued again after that couple of months of nothing happening at all. Fingers crossed for you!
