Thank you Gill and the rest of the famous 5! We're hoping to be category 5 soon, but still really encouraged to see some movement.

 

Thanks for all your work

Thanks to Gill and all those that stood our corner today, well done and thanks for taking the time and effort to get our points across you all deserve a medal.

 

Am I right in thinking that as ours was lodged October 2008 that ours could be one of the first to be finalised?

 

What a wonderful birthday surprise that would be if we were to hear this week, I'm 40 on Friday!

Good job , one thing crossed my mind , all the peeps who have gone back to the uk , and dont intend on returning whatever the reason its not a dig at them , could there be some process stat dec etc where they are counted out so there is room , same as if it was a cinema ,concert etc thats full unless the ones that have left are not monitored the place is deemed full ,if they are counted then there places can be taken by others 10000 visas granted ,3000 return or dont take it up means 3000 more places


Here at last:jiggy:

I limit myself to 2 drinks a day, I`m now 10 years in front make that 15

What can I say... Thank you just does not seem to be enough...

 

What a great forum, what a great community, what great support... PIO is very lucky to have Gill as a fantastic moderator and I for one can not thank her and the rest of you enough for your support in this issue that has struck so many lives in such a bad way! :notworthy:You have brought a glimmer of hope for so many of us.

 

I am feeling a lot of love in the room!!! :wink:

Congratulations to the Famous Five!!! Also a huge thank you to Gill who has put so much effort and time in to this. You have eased a lot of concerns and fears and hopefully people can now enjoy Christmas and wait for those Golden Tickets to come flooding through the mailboxes.

Massive thanks to those involved in doing this, and particularly to GW for the efforts in orchestrating it all.

 

One thing I'm confused about is his figure of 3,500. Where has that come from? There surely must be a LOT more CAT5 applications than that. Is it a quota that, when they reach it, mean they will stop that category from any further processing? Forgive me if I've overlooked something, it just wasn't terribly clear.

 

Was there any news on the MODL review/phasing out of CSL?

Guest JUDITH

Thank you Gill.

I have a question. You mentioned the earlier case will be dealt first. Does it mean the innitial lodgement date of visa application? Many people lodged 175 first and transfered to 176 much later.
