Smile New!

Discovered the forum today, it took me a while...
But it seems to have great content to browse through while waiting!
And waiting is exactly what my partner and I are doing.

A quick introduction:
I'm from Belgium, he is Australian, and the sparkles have been going on since 2009. For a year and a half we travelled back and forth between countries, followed by a working holiday year in Melbourne during 2011. We returned together to Belgium and lived there for about 2,5 years. Being not entirely happy with our jobs, the overall working situation in Belgium and in need of a better balance our lives, we decided to try to return to Australia.

At the start of July 2013 we lodged our application for a partner visa 309, at the embassy in Madrid. On the 29th of July they let us know we filled out the outdated forms - we actually spent an enormous amount of time getting our file together - Anyway, new forms were sent on 02.08.13.
We decided to spend a part of our waiting time travelling, on the way to Australia!
At the start of October we left for Japan, went through a big part of South East Asia, did the health checks in Yangon mid October...interesting place to do so... From the start of January we are back in Japan, and ... still waiting

Counting from the lodging of the new forms we are on 6 months, and we are trying not to freak out by reading some of the posts here

Hello and good luck to everybody!
