We recieved the news this morning that our visa has been granted. We've gained some valuable info from this site, thankyou!
FYI, we began this process in Feb 07. DIAC recieved the last lot of required documents on the 25th of Nov. Visa granted 12th Dec.
We are looking forward to our adventure in regional SA, heading over on my 40th birthday at the end of January.
Good luck to you all on your journeys.
Merry Christmas and a happy Hogmany.
