Just checked the emails only to find I have been granted my spouse visa!! Very quick as they only received my medical results yesterday!!!
After 15 years of marriage, having 2 children with Australian citizenship and having had permanent residency before I kind of hoped it wouldn't take too long. Because I've lived outside Australia for the past 12 years my chances of getting another Resident Return Visa were slim so I had to do it all again and apply for a Spouse Visa.
It's a big relief and one less obstacle to getting over there. Just got to exchange contracts on the house sale and we can open that bottle of champagne!!!
