Awesome stuff Sharyny! Funny how we all get different CO names... Mia, Marie, Melissa....My hubby (currently in new zealand as per Mia's request) got his visa grant today - 309 - the temporary one .... i guess we'll see if we get the permanent permanent one earlier then expected or wait the 2 years we have to wait ....
he's printing it out so he'll have it on his return to australia on saturday ... so i guess we're done for now.
that being said, im really happy we didnt have to wait the 12-15 months. this is his last trip to new zealand on his own - if we ever decide to go there for a holiday.
Famtastic!we emailed them college girl after what you said and got a reply straight away ... Dear Mr Yee In order to grant the permenant visa the provisional visa must first be granted. It appears that the system has sent you both grant notices instead of just the permanent visa grant notice. We apologise for the confusion but can confirm that you have been granted and now hold a Subclass 100 permanent Spouse visa Kind Regards, Department of Immigration and Border Protection Embassy of Australia so all done!!!!
