Now to people on here this news might not be that great, but to me its everything:p
I know it doesn`t mean we`ve been accepted and will defo get a visa, but they have took the money off my credit card:D:D
Its another hurdle over, even though I haven`t received an email confirming receipt of my application , at least its some movement
hehe know what you mean - we were never so glad to see money go off the credit card :D
Good luck for the last bit!!
Looks like a good omen to me! :D
If they don't let you in, can't you ask for your money back guarantee from you credit card, for goods not received!
Seriously though, it is another small step closer to your dream.
