Got the best email last night - visa approved!!

We applied in person at the London office on June 28th last year so are about a week shy of the 8 month mark. We've been married for five years and have a child, with another one on the way - plus bundles of years of evidence and a completely clear police and medical history - so I think our case would have been relatively easy to decide but its such a huge relief!!

I was incredibly excited and happy and as hubby was on the commute home I only had my three year old daughter to get excited with - she just gave me a funny look and asked for a jam tart (wasnt even getting into the spirit by asking for a lamington!!)

yay! we applied on the 25th and got the grant 3 days ago, so we are on exactly the same timetable. are you staying till the baby is born?

my husband is going to Sydney in a few weeks to activate his visa, but we are staying until the end of the year. I'm also pregnant so we want to wait until it is safely born.

Congratulations!!!

I posted mine on 21st Dec and finally got an ack email. The current guide in the email suggests 8-9 months is the norm now.

Given your family set up (5 yrs of marriage and a child) did they give you PR or temp visa?

Hey everyone,

Been looking for a forum based on the London waiting times. My application was received 22nd of August 2013, Police checks submitted with application, medical November (But results didn't go in until Jan 14) and been told I don't need anything else. So just two weeks shy of eight months so hopefully wont be waiting much longer than that. Was informed 8-9 months.

Good luck! That's very exciting

I'm two months behind you, so have a bit longer to wait...

I'm currently fighting my way through Insurance & Shipping documentation. Oh, the glamorous side of migrating

Was aiming for June but if it's as far as August it's all good. Ah I have only got the quotes for that so far. Great fun.
