Can hardly contain my excitement! Received an e-mail today confirming we have a case officer! Just completed the police check application and on to book the medicals. Had a sneaky feeling that it might be quite soon, as have been following a thread on Pomsinoz, under South Aus section, and it seems things are really shifting now. We applied for our 176 visa on 12/11/10, so 3 months, not bad!
All the best to those still waiting, i'm sure it won't be long.
Whoop whoop! :-)
