    :) congratulations!!

     

    are you all ready to go, all sold up, packed up etc....

     

    i hope we get a co soon but we are frontloading the meds & pcs anyway so feels like we are still doing something instead of just sitting and waiting at the moment.

    Congratulations Dawn & Andy:D

     

    That's one less on the pile ahead of me!

     

    What type of visa is it as it looks to have been very quick and did you front load your meds & Pc's?

    Well Done , you must be so excited, when you have calmed down can you let me know what sort of Visa you applied for. As I am trying to fathom how much longer we have to wait.

     

    Enjoy your Champagne

    Best Wishes

    oops sorry thought i put that, must have been the excitement:D

    we applied for a 136 skilled visa under hubbys skills, yes we front loaded meds n pccs, we prob would have had it a little quicker if not for the delays at lcu processing meds cos our meds actually arrived in sydney on 12th june and pccs were sent ahead on 14th june then we got case officer on 20th july just asking for meds, obviously had put our pccs with our file, meds couldnt have been processed at that time or they wouldnt have asked for em?? well thats my thoughts, so they must have been processed sometime after the 20th which means they took 5 maybe 6 weeks to be processed, so i personally would front load em if they are taking that long to clear, i dread to think how long we would have had to wait if we hadnt front loaded! it was bad enough the 16 days we did since getting a case officer!

     

    we wont be moving over til earliest jan/feb 2008 due to house sale, we had a fixed rate mortgage on our house and if we complete before 1st jan we gotta pay 8 grand odd, which we cant afford to lose cos only been in house 18 months not got a lot of equity anyway, so need every penny. hopefully though we can time it so it goes through just after xmas and so hope to be out there in time for the start of the new school year for the kids in january;)so it may just have been timed right for us!

     

    good luck all those waiting and those just starting the journey, it was a little stressful at times but am sure glad we decided to take the ride now!!
