Congratulations to Maritasha, Wallen, Day N Night, Keisha, Bubblybabli, Jenniferoz for your visa Grants. Dredg97, Raheel, placeabo, Leomburu for your CO allocations and hope you get your visa grants soon.

I have updated the google spreadsheet. Please let me know in case I missed someone.

Hi Sujit, my visa was granted on the 3rd of September last; I posted at the time but it hasn't been updated on the spreadsheet. :-)

Hello friends. It’s been almost 7 years since we were all in the middle of the madness of visa application processing.

I moved to Brisbane in August 2012 and have been here ever since. All is well and although I miss family and friends I’m glad I made the move.

As I look back on some of the posts on this thread I realise how a group of strangers were brought together in such a wonderful way. I hope you’re all doing great , whether you ended up moving to Australia or not, or if you tried it for a while and it wasn’t for you. Whatever decision you make is always the right decision.

Kind regards,,

Stephen

Hi, wow yes it feels a lifetime ago. All that stress, it sure was madness! Glad to you hear you have settled well.

We moved to the Gold Coast In November 2012 and have been here ever since. No regrets, loving the Aussie way of life 😀

Ha, ha.  I got notified by email of a reply to this thread all these years later.   We emigrated to the Gold Coast in September 2012.  Still here, living the dream.  Feel quite nostalgic reading through a few of the posts.  It was such an exciting time... watching the Visa movements and the spreadsheet... guessing when your name was going to get called!

Wow, reading this has made me feel very nostalgic, I remember all you guys, we made the final move in July 2013, we did settle in Mornington, but have now downsized and moved to Brighton. So happy and feel this is really home.

Wow!!  Hi everyone!  So great to hear to hear the updates from you all.  We made the move in Oct 2012 to Melbourne and became Aus citizens last year.  We're in Wheelershill with our four kids - 17, 15, 12 + 9. 

There have been ups and downs through it all but we're still here.  Difficult to be so far from family at times - I lost both my parents within 2 months over Christmas.  But we have built a great network and community here and both working happily.  I'm a ft primary teacher and hubby is a construction site manager.  We've been lucky and it's hard to imagine not having made the move.  Our youngest was 2 when we came so shes full on Aussie now!  

Hope it's worked out for you all, 

Ange
