What do you guys think...

I am DESPERATE to go back to Australia...It's been 7 months since I've seen my partner and 4 months (Feb. 3rd) since I've applied for Visa Subclass 300 (Prospective Marriage). Ottawa says it's average about 5 months for a visa to be granted but I'm super antsy; I have a flight booked out to Melbourne for February 21st...Should I call the AHC in Ottawa and ask them if I can get an ETA to visit and then my boyfriend and I can just go to New Zealand or where ever once my PMV is granted or should I wait it out?

Any advice from fellow Canadians or someone who's gone through this?? Much appreciated!

Heya!

I'm currently about 2 1/2 months into the 5 month wait for the "temporary" visa so my wife and I can immigrate back to Australia - so I completely feel your anticipation.

I actually called Ottawa last week for an update. The gentleman I was speaking to was very nice and helpful. He advised what he could of my application and I left satisfied.

It can go both ways really...I don't see the harm in calling, especially if you've pre-emptively booked your tickets out.

Let us know how it goes

Aww! At least your wife and you are together, I think that's the worst part; being apart goes from that lonely feeling to "I JUST WANT THAT DAMN EMAIL NOW" feeling reeeeal quick! Everyone says keep busy, it's the most annoying thing to hear but it's true!! Anything to keep your mind off of wanting to check your email or phone messages every 20 minutes.

That's great you got someone so nice on the phone, usually the response I get is just "Can't tell you anything really", such a road block and so frustrating to hear. I'll definitely call them later this week, if not, then early next week. Would LOVE to go home and see my love before March!

Good luck with everything on your end! Next couple of months should just fly by!

AngeEK,
Did your visa come through? How long did it end up taking?
