Hello robyn92. Thanks for your wish. We heard from them earlier and they said our application is on final stages of processing but that they noticed my PCC will be expired on 13 Sept 17, which means I'll have to step in on or before 13 Sept. So they told me if that is tight for me then I could get a new one and they await my decision on this.

Well this looks really positive, crossing fingers!!

I'm in discussion with my superiors on either I take 2 weeks off in Sept and go there then come back work till end of Nov (if they allow me to take untaken leaves, else would work till end of Dec) or I could apply for new PCC, thus not necessary to go in Sept but if they could allow me to take all my untaken leaves, then go there mid of Nov.

The 2nd option above is better for me because I won't need to spend extra AUD 2k for the Sept air ticket and expenses, but I'm also thinking 22 Sept we would celebrate our 5th year relationship anniversary so that would be a memorable day if we could be together.

Let's see now...

After discussing with my fiancee and employer, we agreed to apply for a new PCC as Sept would be hectic and also I thought let's save the AUD 2,000 air*ticket + expenses as December would have to spend on air ticket again. Only thing is that my employer would not be able to allow me to leave an earlier date than mid Dec as there are some projects coming up. Crossing fingers that in two weeks time when I submit the new PCC, it won't take long before they grant me the visa.

Hey congrats! We were also asked on 16 Aug if we could enter by 13 Sept (date my PCC getting expired) but we advised them it's tight and therefore I have applied for a new PCC, post which we shall send them.

Hi KelM

I see you applied in Jan just before me. I really hope if they are busy with Nov applications that we are soon to follow as I have phoned them on 2 occasions. The first was 1 August and they said no CO have been appointed as they work on first come first serve basis and was still busy with 2016.

2nd occasion was today as it's been 7 months with no contact when she said again still busy with 2016 applications but if Selwyn and Briessie is any indication they should be busy with Nov as she could not tell me. Then we are 2 months down the line with Dec not being a very active month for applications as everyone is on holiday.

Congrats on the others and pray the ones waiting will get answers soon as being apart sucks, I know.

We got the grant this morning!!! Woohoo...
This is such an exciting news for us and we can plan the future accordingly! So I provided the updated PCC last Wednesday so that I don't need to go mid of Sept 2017. Now with the new PCC, I may enter until 10 Mar 2018 (date my medical getting expired).
I'm planning to go mid of Dec though, however I'll have to negotiate with my employer.
Thanks so much to all those who have helped us in this application. We are really grateful to all of you for your support and advises.
We will definitely be back on this website of course as there are 2 further application to make.
Cheers
