176's lodged October 2011

Recommended Posts

Guest bingo
I finally got my visa granted today, Monday 16th Jan. I'm really surprised how fast they moved at the end. I was only uploading the last of my pay slips and bank statements in the early hours of Sunday morning. My intention was to have it on their desks by Monday morning, but I never expected them to get busy on it right away...

 

I applied on October 8th, a while back now and most of you seem to have had your visas for quite some time. To be honest, just before Christmas, I was starting to panic: I thought that accepting an offlist offer for Tassie SS had put me in a category 5 and not a 3. It seems I was worrying about nothing, but perhaps being an offlister slowed things down a bit. Who knows?

 

Anyway, I'm well pleased right now. Good luck to all of those still waiting - I'm sure it will come good for you in the end.........:jiggy:

 

congratulations hun , all the best xx im still waiting and checking and my hubby is on the list for wa they say no news is good news but they didnt get passports or nothing off agent even though i had case officer on 18 th oct so they got all the info the needed by dec 13th so it will go from there me hubby reckons advice to anyone going use a agent do it yaself weve took over now lol xx

Funnily enough I was looking at it just yesterday and wondering how you'd got on Bingo!

Congratulations, must be a relief to have finally got things sorted after your ordeal with the agency :mad: Notch another one up to the DIY club :wink:

 

Do you have plans to go over soon?

Hi All,

Haven't been on here for a while; so busy getting everything sorted for the move. Great to see people are getting their grants - Congratulations to you all!!

We're heading to Perth on 7th April; just over 5 weeks to go and we're pretty terrified at this point (excited too obviously!). Anyone else heading out soon?

Yeah we are an October app who are over here now...we got ours in Dec and flew out 9 Jan via America...so been in OZ 5 weeks today :)

 

It's harder than we thought job wise but the OH starts on Monday and I have finally managed to get registered with two agencies to at least keep me going while I apply for permanent jobs myself. Other than that we are enjoying the weather (even though it's overcast sometimes as it's still warm) and the many things that make life different out here. We have been on so many day trips already to check out the area and it's beautiful. Just a house to sort now lol xx

It's going to be late September for us, I have to get the business wrapped up, on the plus side more shopping time :) can't wait to get to Perth.

Good luck with the move and let me know how your getting on would be great to meet up for a few beers one day :)

Very impatient family here waiting on a request for Medicals & police checks.

But also very undecided what to do as I'm a teacher and have to give notice before end of May to be able to leave end of August or have to stay til Xmas.

If request comes before end of May should we gamble and hand in notice?

How long does it take typically to get meds and police check done?

After they are done what is typical turn around time on a 176 at mo?
