Hi Mike and Ant, Congrats!

Got our 2nd request, too! Couldn't believe it! Hands shaking! 

After 1st July. 

Has anyone ever NOT received visa after this stage. 

Congrats to all getting 2nd vac requests.  Busy times for everyone and probably some butterflies!  Has anyone with June/July 15 date had email to start the process ie meds, police Chequers etc? As we’re wondering how soon before they start asking! ?

We had invite at beginning of May. Not heard anything about assurance of support yet. I think Emmys Gran also heard and has lodgement date around ours.

Thank-you Kaths56!

And good luck to all of you, too!

I should have said

- 'Has anyone ever NOT received a visa after 2nd payment request???????????'

Congratulations!

No one has ever not received the visa at this stage. Probably doesn't feel real yet, but you are safe to pop the corks.

Thanks. No it doesn't feel real. Partner at work! Daughters asleep (in Oz)! So no-one to scream and get giddy with!

Apart from all of you!!

BTW I was the first to suggest 'mindfulness' - so don't go giving Ant 111 all the credit!!!? ?

Thank you.  We're still working n trying to get that interview, hopefully it will happen soon.  To hear that people are getting some good news is so good after such a long wait.  It really lifts the spirits.

Just to say I'm crossing my fingers that you will hear something soon - it's been such a long wait for you.
