VISA Stamp

    Recommended Posts

    Hello,

     

    Has anyone who has got there visa had there visas stamped recently ?

    I have looked on the Ausltralian high commision website and it says this -

     

    Send your passport by secure mail (Special Delivery silver pouch recommended for clients in the UK) to:

     

    Visa Evidencing Unit

    Migration Branch

    Australian High Commission

    Strand London WC2B 4LA

     

     

    I know you dont need it but i still want it anyway so can anyone confirm that this is the right place to send them of to?

    Hi,

    we went into London this month to get our stamps in the passports, the address you have posted is the place we visited, the office is open 09.00 - 11.00.

    We posted our passports down on Wednesday after info from our agent, but initially we emailed the Australian embassy they advised it doesnt need to be done as its in the passport electronically. But we wanted to actually see it!!!

    My hubby will be happy. He wants to see the visa (if we get it!) in his passport.

    Do you have to send additional postage so they can send it back to you?

    Hiya yes we did this a couple of weeks back, thats the address we sent them to. They don't look up to much in the passport but was well worth doing, can show them off to family now!!

    Oh and we included a prepaid special delivery envelope for the return of our passports. (think it tells you this on their website anyway though)

    We had ours done at Brentwood. Hoping to have the results uploaded via e-health next week. Fingers crossed for a positive result soon!

    Where did you have yours done?

    We got our passports done last month. just follow the instructions on their site and include silver pre-paid special delivery envelope.

    Better to have than not, just think if the computers crashed and they could not access visa info!!!?

    Nice to look at and keep for memories after all the hard work and money to get it:-)

    I called the clinic yesterday and apparently all our results are sitting there waiting for the doctor to sign them off, and he won't be in until Tuesday or wednesday. It's more annoying now knowing that they are just sitting there! Hopefully not too much longer now before we get an answer.

     

    Good luck to you

    Quite agree - hope to go to The Strand in person to get ours 'done' when the time arrives. I know the office is open from 9.00 - 11.00 (or similar) but do you need to make an appointment as the time slot is comparatively short each day?
