Finally after 8 1/2 months - we have our 475 visa!! :smilexmas:
Really am in total shock and don't know whether to laugh or cry!!! :realmadxmas:
Our agent told us time and time again that a letter with my OH's job offer would not make a difference to our aplication - but we have read so many posts on here and other sites saying it does - I asked my agent to give me DIAC's number.
Reluctantly she did, and James called last night - the lady at the office, Sylvia, was extremely helpful (helped being English I think!) and said could we forward the job offer by email and she'd get her manager to look at it. We did so immediatley - that was 11pm last night, and this morning the visa was granted - yeah!!! :laughxmas:
We are so thrilled, but I know lots of you are still waiting - but it might be worth a call and if you get a nice person on the end of the phone, you never know what might happen. :winkxmas:
Anyway - off to call some people now!!
