Good luck to everyone applying in Pretoria.

Assessment in progress was there for a couple of months prior to grant. I have heard of people who went straight from submitted to finalised though.

I hope you all get the grant soon. The wait is so frustrating especially when you hear nothing for over 8 months. Already subscribed to this thread.

Yea true and it's worst when partners are living apart for so long (like me and my fiancee)....

Lol, I woke up this morning seeing an email notification from you and realised the timing seems odd as it looks too early today or too late yesterday but not sure.

Yes if I get it anytime between June-Dec 17 then I'll move permanently next Feb-Mar 18 because I need to consider the 3 months notice period to leave my current job and also I would prefer working till December 17 to get my annual + performance bonus (God knows how long it shall take me to get a job in my Accounting field in Oz). Else given that my PC will expire this Aug and if I get my visa by July 17 I believe they shall tell me I need to enter by Aug 17, so I might come for 3 weeks holidays just to activate my visa
