Could I start a new thread off regarding the time scale of things. Not everybody lists this in their signature so how about a brief simple entry on this thread that can be referred to by others. I'm certain most look at this on other posts wondering how things compare with their own situation.
I'll start it off with:
475 Visa application e-lodged: 19th Nov 2007
Front loaded Police checks and Meds: Jan & Feb 2008
Application with decision maker: 6th May 2008
