    OMG that is AMAZING news! Great way to start the weekend! And the fact that it was so fast too!!! I really hope mine is like that. Still got a long wait though, as you lodged way before me and only just got it.

     

    Someone who lodged July 08 got theirs yesterday, so there was me thinking they were up to July 08, but totally not. Totally random, it's a lottery! xxx

    Congratulations Paul and Shaz !

    I am also thinking about the 475 but migration officer wants to charge to £1,600 GBP to help me process it. Did you use a migration officer to help you or did you do it yourself, if so was it straight forward ?

    I paid nearly £3000 agency fees for their help. 6 months of £271 and a £500 deposit (which I dont get back). Well worth it though, saved me ALOT of tme and hassle! And they know wht they are doing! xx

    cheers guys, I'm abit quite with shock at the moment, those 10 drinks should get me going though!

     

    Soon as we can find a tenant for our flat we're pretty much set to go, going to have a really long holiday on the way and travel a few months on the route but will probably be there September'ish.

     

    Be good to meet a few faces from the forum!

     

    we did use an agent, there are lots of pro's and cons, we paid them about £2000 but we're fortunate enough to have that money saved. It saved me a lot of hassle and worry, I had already tried to do it myself for New Zealand and made a mess of it so it was worth it just to get it through smoothly for us.

     

    Thanks again to all, the info and inspiration on this site keeps you going!

    Well.. we checked the tracking page yesterday.. and next to all the critera.. it had "met" (apart from meds and Police checks)

     

    Then we had an email this morning saying we've been allocated a C/O.

     

    Some people seem to get passed without even knowing who their C/O is.....

     

    Hopefully we'll all be in the sunshine soon!!!!!!!! Leave all this horrible snow behind!

     

    Lisa.
