Don't worry about that we only had meds etc finalised mid May when they had stopped issuing visa's for 07-08 so we had to wait until new visa year which started 1st July which was when our's was issued

hi i know you are december but thought this might give you some idea my friend who applied end of august got visa 1st july and i applied mid october and another friend end of october and we got our visa this week so they seem to be catching up! they are now saying 9-12 months from inital application instead of 6-9 months as we were advised last week
Really sorry not been in touch. Moved out of rental last week into Mums and also had our leaving do. Its all been pretty hectic. Just getting sorted with all the paperwork now and need to sort out car hire, then I think we will be well on the way. Myself and Gavin tried to remember we had a case officer before being granted a visa and we think about a month beforehand, but only guessing. Really glad the house sale is going ahead its just frustrating waiting for the visa but I know its all going to come together for you and we will soon be having a glass of vino by the sea, although we won't need ice by the sounds of how cold it is at the moment! Keep in touch, speak soon. Fi x

Yes waiting for the dam visa is a nightmare BUT at least it "looks" loke we have sold the house!
Had bad news yesterday my dad having major heart surgery in the next week or 2 so got that to worry about also now!
Although i would rather still be here in the UK when he has this operation and know first hand how he is not via phonecalls to Oz!
Anyway good luck with everything and yes we "WILL" have those vinos (and many of them)
Have not posted on here for quite a while but have been dipping in every so often. I must admit we are both getting a little fed up now. We too are waiting for our SIR475 visa and every time I email or speak to our agent he says "not long now, I am expecting them to ask you to go for your medicals very soon". It's not his fault I know, but it is frustrating getting the same answer each time.
We have had the house on the market for 7 weeks now and not one viewing, not even a sniff of interest. They don't know what they are missing.
The whole thing is getting a bit boring now, especially when friends and family keep asking how its going and have we heard anything yet.
Oohhhh, it's so frustrating for us all in this horrible boat (which feels like it is sinking)
And if I hear one more piece of news about how house prices are falling, mortgages not being approved and money is tight I will scream.
Rant over - feel better now.

Hi Gill [ happy days !! ]
Can you look into a short term rental while waiting on the visa as you don't want to lose that buyer. We have only had the visa a month and it has been the worst month ever knowing we can go at anytime but have no buyer
Hang tight it shouldn't be too long
TOTALLY AGREE with Jacqui , DO not loose that buyer, you"ll have to rent while waiting for that visa [ Will be here SOON !! :):) ] We"ll do a swap if you want . The visas will come eventually, dont know about the buyers though [ Rocking horse SH.T . GOOD LUCK ,fingers crossed for you.
Wayne n Louise. [ waiting for that BUYER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]
It all gets a bit much at time's there are days when I walk around like a zombie
trying to get it all straight in my head, but you have that goal post in sight now
it looks like it won't be long and you will be soaking up oz rays instead of brit rain, and you will have all the stress about which house you like best to buy.
Good luck with your dad by the way, it is a lot to cope with it does do your head in
just make sure that hubby of yours spoils you lots and lots.

So nearly 9 months. I know it's possibly not as long as some people have waited, but it feels like ages.
It is a long time!! We have only been waiting since Apil - and that feels long
