Hello everyone - am THRILLED to say that I was granted my permanent residency today!!! :) :) :)
The last of my paperwork was my foreign police clearance which my agent sent to my case officer on Monday, visa granted one day later, and only 2 months after I got my CO..... it's been 2 years, 11 months and 4 days since I lodged my application! I think my patience finally paid off!!!!!!!!!
Soooooo excited! Hope to leave the UK mid June, and get to Adelaide in September... so much to do! :)
