    well done. We are also hoping we are nearing the end of this process. How long did it take you from submitting your visa app to actually receiving the visa? We're heading across in October for our reccie with our two boys who are 11 and 13. We are in the same boat as you with so much to look into when we are there. Planned a few school visits but have to also try and narrow down the area we want to live in! Good luck with the move.

    Hey everyone,

    We finally got our visa through on Monday too... been waiting since April so have been walking around with a massive :biggrin: for the past two days! We've just booked our flights for November so now it's time to start packing up the house and organising accommodation in Adelaide. Does anyone know where would be a good place to start on this?

    Hi Linda21, we submitted (489) end of March, read that there was around a 3 month delay in processing so didn't expect too much, got a case officer beginning of July who requested more documents then got the grant a week later!!, I'm sure you'll hear soon, good luck with the waiting!! Lol

    Congrats emwatson, were going in blind!! Eeek!! Oh well you only live once, have no idea where to start, let us know how things go we're not going till jan/feb :)

    Did you wait until you were asked to get medicals/PCC or did you go ahead and just do them?

    We went ahead and did them around June, I wasn't worried about eating into the 12 months you have to validate or enter australia as we wanted to go as soon as possible, and I thought it would save time :)
