Lol yes that would make sense - but since so few people seem to apply from NZ (I found a couple of threads but they were all a few years old) I thought it would be better to just comment on this one rather than try in vain to find people who've applied more recently in NZ!

I'm off to Australia tomorrow morning and I am itching to call the Australian High Commission to check if everything is ok with my application before I go.

I need a sanity check please - I know that it is far too early to have any decision. The last contact I had with my CO was to let them know I would be in Australia and their reply was thanking me, and that it was too early to tell me when my visa would be finalised (this was in July & and all my email said was literally: "I am going be in Australia from this date to this date").

Should I give them a ring?

You might annoy them a little, but since you have an actual question to ask as opposed to just "when will my visa be ready?" I think you could get away with it..

After over 2 months of gathering evidence and cutting down on evidence we have finally sent our application to the London office! Over 1.3kg of evidence was sent so hopefully i've sent enough to get us the green light! Let the waiting game begin...!

Did you submit a 'Decision Ready' application with medical clearance and police checks?

I'd be interested to know if anybody who's married with children has gotten a quicker processing time than 8-9 months.
We would love to be home for Christmas
QueenB,

We're in Northern Ireland and i was just wondering where you got your medicals done? We're going to dublin for a weekend in November and was thinking of getting it done then because we're quite a while away otherwise.

Thanks
