So we emailed our CO (LG) last Thursday (22nd May, 2014) to see if there was any further progress with our application. They politely emailed back saying it would be end of May - end of June before anything would be processed but as soon as there was any developments they would let us know. We hadn't been in any contact with our CO previously, only to let them know that we had sent the further information they required and that we had sent away my partners' police checks and medical, which was back in February. And as if by magic at 1.23PM this afternoon (28th May, 2014) our visa was GRANTED!!!!!!!!!!! To say we are over the moon would be an understatement. Our payment was taken on the 30th of September so we're just short 2 days of the 8 month mark. Also, we applied for the 309 but said that if we met the requirements could we be considered for the 100... And we got the 100!!!!!! All of our hard work, emotional goodbyes and hellos and endless skypes have seemed to have paid off! And for those of you waiting.. It won't be long! Stay strong and remember it'll all be worth it in the end!!!!

That's great news! Our visa was received just a few days before yours so hopefully that means some good news is coming our way If you don't mind me asking what was your situation? i.e. children involved, married for how long etc.?

Our situation is a little confusing but non the less a typical long distance story! We met in aus in 2009 and after 3 years of living apart for months between him being in Ireland and me in aus or him being in New Zealand and me in aus i bit the bullet and moved over here in June 2012. We kept in contact through skype, texts etc. and saw each other at least twice every year. We aren't married (have neither been before) and don't have any children.. Still can't believe we've got it!!

Visa granted today!!!!!!!!

My co was LG (like misshall's), I emailed her just a few weeks ago asking for news and was told that I would have to wait till Mid June to mid July... Guess not!
I applied in London on the 17 October so I got the grant just a few days short of 8 months.
I'm happy and terrified in equal measure at the moment!!!

Good luck to everybody who is still waiting, not long to go if you applied in October I guess!

What now though? We just book flights and go? Or do I need to send my passport in or do something else? It feels so weird to actually have the visa!
