Hi Connie

 

Just to let you know we have our meds booked to be re-done this Wednesday... our French police checks have been sent in and we are still waiting for the UK police checks and then that's it... the last hurdle will be done and dusted and hopefully no more hoops to jump through!!!

 

Sorry I have not been around much but since the little man was been born there seems more to life than the Australian visa... cant believe we have been waiting over 3 years now! We are the oldest pink on your front page list! I hope we turn purple soon! I have scanned through a few posts and can say that I hardly know anybody on here now! All the familiar faces seemed to have their visa and moved on! I think I must be one of the last ones...lol

 

Your thread is looking really good, seems like so many have been given visas over the last few months! Fantastic and congrats to those of you who now have yours!

 

Anyway, hope you are keeping well...

 

Best wishes:hug:

not too much longer for you now Tasha, good luck, keep me posted

Hi joynaldx,

 

Thanks for sharing your time line and what happened in between. Do you have any ideas of what kind of checks (internal/external) they done during the process and did you get any notification once any of the checks is done?

 

Cheers
