NIGHTMARE!!!
According to our agent we're on schedule. Apparently the 175 pathway can take up to 12 months to come through, possibly because it's the most popular route. We haven't had our medicals yet. We were going to get them done because I suppose it felt like at least something was happening but our agent advised us against it until we got our case officer - which we're still waiting for! I'm pleased we have waited though, seeing how long its taking to get a CO. If we did our meds/pcs a couple of months back as we were originally going to do we'd be losing that time the other end as they're only valid for a year and we mightn't get our visas through until Oct/Nov time. That wouldn't leave us much time to sell our house!
It does seem like we've been waiting forever and a day though but I know there are plenty of others in the same boat (I'm not sure if that's any consilation or not). We've just to hang in there and one of these days we'll get that letter/phone call!!
Did you do the Vetassess skills assessment?? Oh well i'll just have to get my head around stopping at work longer and saving some money!! It must be nice knowing that your wait is almost over, your nearer the end!! Im so impatient and hate waiting, i come on here most nights now and read everyones stories.. Have you been before? And what made you choose Adelaide??
That is a good positive thought .. let's hope next week it's moved on again and then we can actually have a better idea of when we are likely to get the visa.
