At Last!!! We've Got Our Visas!!!!!!
Just wanted to share our good news that we were granted our skilled visa yesterday! Still can't quite believe we have got it at long last!
It has been a very slow and often frustrating process but we got there in the end!
Our house goes on the market next week so hopefully it won't be too long before we are booking our one way tickets to Adelaide!
Mixed reactions from close family. Some were hoping we weren't going to be successful...and yesterday's news hit them hard...so not everyone has been jumping up and down with joy!
Lets hope in a couple of years we can look back and say - YES - that was the best thing we ever did....fingers crossed!
So...hang in there everyone waiting for their visas or just starting out....good luck to you all!
Congratulations. Have a drink for us.
I wish we were in your shoes and don't worry about family reactions I would say there are very little on here who have complete family support. My Mum In Law has opted to completely ignore the fact that we are applying for a visa
Enjoy the moment & Good Luck
