..and much much more!

This is all happening a bit quicker than expected!!

Recommended Posts

When we put in our visa application at the end of May we resigned ourselves to the fact that it coud take 18 months to 2 years to see any progress.

 

So we got a bit of a scare last Tuesday when we got an e-mail asking for our medicals and police checks in the next 28 days. Lots of OMG and SH**, this is all getting a bit real and scary and a lot sooner that we had anticipated or planned for.

 

So Police check applications have been sent off and we had our medicals last night - very impressed with the process and service at Spire Hospital in Manchester who only started doing these medicals in October.

 

So now we are waiting again, but with the realisation that if there are no problems we could be taking a trip to Oz by the end of next year to validate our visas - so now for some frantic saving to pay for the flights and accommodation so we can at least make it feel like a holiday/chance to see places when we get there.

Hi, we are in exactly the same position!

 

Sent everything off expecting not a great deal very soon and we had our visa 7 weeks from application :) There seems a lot of it going on at the moment.

We used the new Spire hospital in Birmingham, purpose built Dept, all very efficient!!

 

Since the visa was granted Jane has secured a job that is starting in August, it's been a cracking few weeks!!

 

Good luck!
