Do you know what contributed to the fast turn around?
PMV to 820 approvals usually happen in just a matter of a few weeks, so it's not THAT far out of the realm of what usually happens, but still - a 1 day turnaround is fabulous.

Congrats, Maisie!

Thanks! I don't know why it was so fast, but I guess we are a relatively straightforward case and gave them everything they needed upfront.

We are living in Tasmania so our application was handled by the processing centre in Brisbane.

But from a PMV... Important to include that little bit of info as those grants are so much faster than just those applying straight to 820.

I am SO EXCITED FOR YOU! I can't imagine how thrilled you must be!!!
