Visa (almost) granted!!!

Date visa granted: will be granted when I am back home in Poland that is the end of October

Last night I received an e mail from my CO that she had been trying to call me but was not able to reach me and she asked for a landline number or a call back. I called her back as soon as I read the message as she wanted to discuss some aspects of my application. I did not know it would be actually a mini interview. She asked me about my husband's stay in Poland, what we did there etc. She asked whether he is studying Polish, about our honeymoon. Then she asked where we are staying in Oz, so I told her that my husband owns a house. The last question was about our future plans. And that is it. Maybe 5 minutes altogether? Maybe less. Then she said that my application was well prepared, she has got all the documents and the visa is ready to be granted but I need to be outside Australia as it was an offshore application. The CO was really understanding and when I said that I am coming back to Poland at the end of October ( I am with my husband in Australia now) she said that the visa will be granted then. I really do not want to go to New Zealand now. I am so relieved. I can plan my future now.

To all the people in the forum thank you very much for your support and all the information you provide, and if I can help anyone, feel free to ask me.

For the record, it was quite difficult to follow up with the immigration rep. We had to chase her a bit to get everything through. However, my hubby is over in New Zealand now, coming back tomorrow as a resident (we have been here for a few weeks). He was also granted permanent right away.
