Recommended Posts

Hi All

Just a question - please be patient as this is my first post!

I am impatient already!

thanks

On the 30th June it took me 4hrs, not sure how much has changed in just over a month. Am sure I read somewhere that it had taken a couple of days for someone recently,

Good luck,

Hi Williamsons

 

sounds good I will keep you updated too as to our progress. I just joined the site yesterday too - it's beginning to feel real isn't it?

Hopefully we will get the ss nice and quick and get the visa app in soon!

I know what you mean!! I go from feeling really excited about the whole thing to nervous & then back again!! It's good to see that the June 176-ers have had things moving quite quickly - fingers crossed!

Yes very excited to very nervous sounds about a normal day for me right now!

 

Go from being desperate to get on with things to panic about how much there is to do!

Tell me about it! When I start talking about all the things we have to do my husband tells me I am getting too far ahead of myself & to stop stressing. It's hard to think of anything else though & work is just an inconvenience at the moment!! Speaking of which I had better make a start!! I really hope our IT department don't do a trawl of all the websites I have been looking at recently - it will give the game away!!!

We submitted WA SS for my husband as a chef on 20/06/11 and got approved 5hrs after submission! CO allocated 27/06/11 and visa granted 11/08/11. So it can happen quite quickly!!!

Hi,

 

We have also applied for WA SS on 11/8/2011 and are still waiting, haven't heard anything yet. Im driving myself mad checking emails daily to see if anything has been sent through.

 

Good to see they don't seem to be taking too long.

 

At present we are swinging from can't wait to get out there, to not wanting to go at all, but this seems to be normal with other PIO members too.

 

Will be good to follow others at the same stage of applying for their 176.

We started the visa application late last night but doubt we will get it in until the weekend as I am away for the next couple of days.

 

Have to admit I was checking my emails every morning as soon as I got up too. Just feel that everything takes soooo long :arghh: - but that is my lack of patience :laugh:

 

Hopefully you guys will get yours soon too. Will keep you posted.

 

Sarah

Just had my WA State Sponsorship granted this morning which is pretty exciting.

 

Now - on with the 176 visa application. BTW - I posted this elsewhere, but is it possible to hurry things along by organising medicals and police checks now? Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this.
