Visa grant 9th Feb - yipee!

    Recommended Posts

    Hi all,

     

    We got our visa granted on wednesday, done the celebrating and Im still in shock as we only found out we had a co last friday..:jiggy:

    Told my mum and I shed a little tear, but she knows how much we want this and was really supportive.

    Still have the house to sell and in the current climate, I dont know how realistic a sale will be so may have to consider renting for a while.

    Hoping to get to SA this sept if all goes to plan.

     

    Good luck to all those still waiting.

    When do you have to be here before?

     

    We only had 3 months to validate the visa so just made the one way trip.

    deli&paul,

    Our little ones have settled in very well.

    Pippa (3) goes to the ABC kindy down from us.

    We drop her off at 7am and I pick her up on my way home from work.

    She loves going and has lots of friends to play with.

    Finlay (6) goes to OSCH (before and after school club).

    Quite often when go to collect him he asks if I can come back later.

    He has lots of mates there, They are from all the ages in the school.

    Hes always making something out of recycled products.

    Its like Blue Peter gone mad!

    Hi CSS,

     

    We went for our meds 14th Jan before we had been allocated an co, the kids were finalised 17th Jan and OH & me were finalised 25th Jan, found out we had a case officer 4th Feb which was the day we uploaded our police cheks, then got Grant the following Wednesday (9th feb).

    All went very fast once the smp was released and we got promoted to cat2!

    Im sure you wont have a long wait now!
