Hi, I applied for my visa 27/08/08 and I'm hoping to be in Sydney in late Feb-09. Is that unrealistic? I've sent in all the required documents, I am from a low risk country (Sweden, but now living in UK), got 8.5 on the IELTS test and I'm on the MODL-list. My application is pretty straight forward and there should be no question marks. It's only gone a week and I'm stressed about it already! :chatterbox:

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...
