I had been afraid to do that until that is what they suggested I do. It took a few minutes to get the ETA, then I booked the flight to return with my husband on the same flights. Sent a letter to immigration with our file number attn to our C/O since we still don't have her direct email.

Yeah it is nice to be able to make firm plans. We have cats to bring too and it was a problem trying to work out the timing of when to bring them.

Did they say how long you will be required to stay outside Australia when the visa is ready to be granted?

No but from what I have read a day will do. My husband and I can go over to New Zealand for a visit for a couple of weeks if we wanted to.

Hey Meisha,

We will be living about an hour south of Sydney. It is a really nice spot in the Southern Highlands.
