Hello all,

 

Alex...41 applied as an I.T. Manager on 176 visa, and planning on moving to Melbourne to accept a cracking job offer.

 

Still waiting for ACS assessment to be completed, and also waiting for a case officer to be assigned.

 

Seems like I'm living out several episodes of "Yes, Minister".

 

How's everyone else getting along?
