OMG!!Visa granted

Recommended Posts

I am still in shock we have just got an email that says Visa granted!!

Only sent an email with our police checks to our case officer last night, seems all a bit to sudden really!

Have only been a lurker and minor poster until now but I can see that I'll be a daily visitor for advice!

Process took 15 months feels like alot longer but yet not long enough, looks like we'll we out for a reccie before our deadline of 9th May 2012 and then a 2 year plan for a full move!

Hi Both

 

Sivakumar we applied for ACT SS in late 2009 it was processed pretty quickly but by the time we got our act together we didn't actually complete our online DIAC form until Feb 2010. Our process has been a bit longer then others we didn't do IELTS tests, medicals etc until they were requested by our case officer and we DIY'd it rather then pay a migration agent. It was the IELTS tests and my qualification assessment that actually slowed the process down. We had our medicals on May 10th, police checks took approx 14 days as we sent them over the marathon May bank hol/royal wedding, visa granted today!

 

Dawny I notice that you have returned to the UK, do you mind if I ask where you moved to in Oz and why you returned? We are obviously ecstatic about the visa grant an can't wait to get out there but I am a realist and beginning to read the posts about people returning and would like to hear from people who have stayed and returned.

 

Thanks

 

Kate
