YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS!!!! We've received the email this morning saying our visa has been approved. I was getting so depressed logging on every morning and afternoon checking for emails and seeing nothing and, not to mention waiting in anticipation for the Tuesday electronic email.
We applied online (SIR 495) on 26 July and was very surpised when we received the full approval this morning. A bit confusing, but we never received the "receipt, acknowledgement letter (file nr) or case officer....??
We frontloaded all our medicals and police checks, so not sure if that helped?
Anyways, good luck to everyone who's still waiting. I can so relate! I think I've aged 20 years in the last 3 months
Will be in Adelaide March 2008!!!
