Wow we just can't believe it!! After only ten months since submitting our visa and at one point thinking we weren't going to be processed for a very long time we received the long awaited call from our agent to say that we have just been allocated a case officer!!! Rock on Tommy!!
Everything now just seems to be a total blur again! We now have to get the Meds and Police checks done and we have been told we have 70 days in which to get back to the case officer and report on what we have done or arranged to be done. Additionally we have been told that we need to really renew our passports as we'll have less that a year when in theory we would have to fly out approx this time next year - latest! It just seems that there is so much to do and where do you start. Looking for schools for the lads, areas to stay, sell the house, consider flying the dog out! etc..etc...
Wow this is just manic but at the same time we're both ecstatic and sitting in disbelief to think that our long awaited dream is hopefully about to come true after jumping over this last hurdle!!
We have also noted that many others have also seen movement recently and we would just like to take this opportunity to wish everyone all the best with the final stages and we are sure were ALL having these mad panics!! Likewise, good luck to all those who are battling their way through the long and lengthy process!
