Hi Big Bob and everyone else.

 

Wow, just opened up my email and our 176 visa has finally been granted. Yes - we are off to Oz. Please change our colour on the first page.

You definitely earned it mate! Well done :) So happy for you Big bob :) I was sharing with you the waiting time on VIC SMP thread (my name was "Oz or not to Oz"). And I felt so bad when you received the unfortunate reply at that time. However, I was sure you will not give up. You are well organized and certainly determined to get it!

Congratulations Big Bob :)

Wish you all the luck with your VISA process

Good luck mate :) BTW, I believe you can prepare for the MEDs. Until the CO asks for it, it will be just finalised or still in process. Also, depending on how many country you will issue the PCC for and the processing time to issue it/them, you may decide the proper time to start the process in order to front load PCC(s) as well.

 

Wish you all the best ;)
